I would never use the TA advertising sources (note that they are not "TA sources"). Go to the airlines directly.

I have had good luck using the Trip Advisor search engine to sort out who (airline) goes where. but as you can see I do the road less traveled and am always looking for new ideas

Hi,

While there are A LOT of new planned flights going to RGN due to the lifting, easing or elimination of national 'embargoes' on such activity, most have not yet started..

Sol, depending on your travel dates, you may have to wait a bit and see what the actual demand shapes up for direct, non-stop travel to RGN looks like.. Some carriers may expand their services, other may cut-back.. there's some unknown in that regard.

Aside from that, the largest hub, by far, is Bangkok.. So, you might find it's going to be cheaper and easier to fly to Bangkok and use BKK (either airport as there's two airports serving the city) for your onward travels...

From Bangkok, you do have several options namely, Thai, AirAsia and Bangkok Airways.. Two of these three can, in many cases, be ticketed together with your USA- origination flight to provide you with "connection protection" for things like delays etc..

Travel Safe,

I would look at Qatar or Korean because they both now fly directly from their respective hubs into Yangon.

Your best bet is to use one of the Alliances, of which United and American are members.

One route out of many hubs in the US is by BA via LHR to BKK.

Or using Star Alliance there are loads of carriers to BKK so it is worth signing up for their offers-Thai,Lufthansa,Turkish,United SAS and there are 3 times a day connections in BKK on TG to Yangon so, as GOPBI says,you can be ticketed straight through with protection.

Qatar has a 3 times a week flights to Yangon from Qatar but due to demand the prices are not cheap but it is the only airline currently offering only one stop from the US.TG used to have a one stop to RGN from the West coast but it is now 2 stop.
