Domestic Airlines in Myanmar

HI all,
We are going to Myanmar and have the choice of 5 domestic airlines for flights within the country. Two are fairly new-Asian Wings and Air Kanazawa. Others are Air Mandalay, Air Bagan and Air Yangon. Does anyone have any safety information on any of these?. Has anyone flown on any? I need to make a decision soon and I want to make it based on safety. Would you risk flying on the newly formed Air Kanazawa.? Not much is published on this. Thanks.

Interestingly, Santa Maria booked me on Air Kanazawa.which just started up in April. I have asked them to rebook me on Air Mandalay and Air Bagan, which they said they would do.

I saw the other airline when we were at the airport, seemed like quite a busy airline as they had several flights out of Yangon. I wouldn't worry, they only one I wouldn't fly would be myanamar international

From what I can tell, Air Kanazawa bought the old Myanmar Air. I think they bought the planes and routes from the government..

BTW, are you going to do a TR on your Burma visit.

The safety record on MA was not good, that's why I wouldn't want to fly them!
Yes I will do a TR on my Burma visit just haven't gotten round to it yet....
