Getting around by air

Thandwe airport is named for the town 4 miles inland, but is closer to Ngapali village and the north end of the beach. The hotels meet all flights and offer free transport to/from the airport.

Asian Wings, Air Bagan, Air KBZ, Air Mandalay and Yangon Airways serve Yangon (from US$111, 55 minutes to 2ΒΌ hours, daily), sometimes via Sittwe (from US$72, 45 minutes, daily). There are fewer flights in the rainy season (May to October), but Myanmar National Airlines (www.flymna.com) keeps flying daily.
