The airline was founded by the government before independence in 1946 as Union of Burma Airways. It initially operated domestic services. International services were added in 1950. The name was changed to Burma Airways in December 1972, and to Myanma Airways on April 1, 1989. International services were transferred to Myanmar Airways International, set up in 1993.
Myanmar Airways International (MAI) took off in August 1993, initially created as a joint venture between Myanma Airways and Singapore-based Highsonic Enterprises, with the support of Royal Brunei Airlines. Eventually, the original joint venture was terminated and MAI became a wholly owned Myanmar company. In January 2001, a new joint venture was formed in which Region Air Myanmar (HK) Ltd., took a 49% stake and a local businessman through his company Zan Co. took a 11% share and Myanma Airways retained 40%.
In 2002, the airline obtained new International Air Transport Association (IATA) airline designator codes and joined both the IATA Multilateral Interline Traffic Agreement (MITA) and IATA Clearing House. In February 2007, the foreign management team under Region Air Myanmar (HK) Ltd. transferred its control to Myanma Airways. Having revived from the tighter US sanctions on Myanmar, MAI is now operating as normal with its own aircraft and plans to expand flight frequency, fleet, as well as new routes are underway.
