Booking flights from Burma to China (?)

Jump to last reply

I think I posted this on another thread but cannot find it.

I am looking for flights from Mandalay (first choice) or Yangon, to Shanghai. There are good connections via Kunming on China Eastern and Shanghai Air. Using these carriers, I can get from Burma to Shanghai in one day.

Travel Agent in Yangon has come back with a price of $593 per person including taxes and fees for the Yangon-Kunming/Kunming-Shanghai flights. He is still checking the options departing Mandalay.



I know that I should wait to buy the China portion of the itinerary, but I do not want to wait until I arrive in Burma to do this. I want to wrap up all details a few months before we leave, if possible. I tried to see if I could book online, but it does not seem to be possible for the China Eastern Burma-China leg, which is the segment that I tried. (At least not possible in English)

This is the website:

For the Shanghai Air Kunming-Shanghai portion, the fare seems to be 1900 RMB, or about $278US (this is the price using today's date).



http://www.shanghai-air.com/salnewweb-en/index.aspx

Given that information, perhaps the total fare is NOT out of line (???) (I do have one recommendation for a TA in Bangkok (thank you, Agent H); I could try pricing the flights with them.

Does $597 sound reasonable for this routing? Any other leads to well priced-tickets?



I apologize that I may have asked this before. For additional information on the trip, please see thread on "Burma Trip Planning"

Thank you!!
