An F-28 aircraft from Myanmar Airways
A passenger aircraft from Myanmar Airways (MA) made an emergency landing at Yangon International Airport (YIA) in the morning of November 13 due to a technical problem. No one on board was hurt in the emergency landing.
The plane, en route from Yangon to Monwya transiting in Nay Pyi Taw, encountered a technical problem when it tried to land at the Nay Pyi Taw airport, and it was forced to return to Yangon.
"Actually it was a technical error. The plane had to return to Yangon International Airport as it could not land at Nay Pyi Taw airport. But it landed at YIA successfully," said a pilot from MA. A total of 61 people were on board including pilots and cabin crew.
Myanmar Airways, a state-owned airline, has three F-28 aircraft, three MA-60 airplanes, and two Beech-1900D planes providing regular domestic and international flights.
