Flight, cabin and technical crews joined operations and
ground personnel to welcome the E145 to the Air Mandalay fleet.
Air Mandalay of Yangon, Myanmar, took
delivery of its first E145 earlier this month.
Bearing registration YX-ALD and named “Hanna,” the 50-seat aircraft is
the first regional jet for the carrier which currently operates three
turboprops. The airline started using the 50-seat E145 for charter flights on
March 19 and will introduce the airplane on scheduled services in April to some
of the dozen cities in its domestic network.
Air Mandalay is the second commercial
airline to operate the E145 in the region.
In January 2013, NOVOAIR Air of Bangladesh began flying 49-seat E145s to
four destinations in the country from Dhaka.
The airline has three E145s in its fleet.
