Boeing’s relationship with Myanmar’s aviation industry spans several decades.
In 2014, Myanmar’s national flag carrier, Myanmar National Airlines (MNA), announced it would lease 10 737s, a mix of both Next-Generation 737s and 737 MAXs, through the leasing company General Electric Capital Aviation Services (GECAS).
The national carrier took delivery of the country’s first all-new Boeing aircraft – a Next-Generation 737-800 in June 2015.
Boeing, GECAS and the airline also partnered together in 2015 to deliver more than 2,300 pounds (1,043 kilograms) of medical supplies to those affected by a flood within Myanmar.
Boeing has a field service technical representative based in Yangon providing on-the-ground, real-time support.
