Tour agency to launch airport shuttle bus

Travellers flying in or out of Yangon International Airport will be able to take a shuttle bus to and from the airport starting in August.

The newly formed company, JTB Polestar, plans to offers a shuttle service for tourists connecting Yangon airport to a number of downtown locations, including hotels such as Parkroyal, Traders, Sedona and Chatrium. Tickets will cost US$10 one way and the company is planning to run eight shuttle buses, said vice president U Kyaw Min Htin.

JTB Polestar was established on May 9 as a joint venture between Myanmar Polestar Travel and Tours and JTB, a Japanese travel company.

The chief minister of Yangon Region, U Myint Shwe, said at the shuttle launch ceremony that he believed the joint venture would help to boost tourism.

“The Ministry of Hotels and Tourism is expecting 1.8 million tourists will visit Myanmar … in 2013. Five hundred thousand people have already visited at the end of May. That’s why I hope the JTB polestar company will help to implement our target,” he said.

JTB Polestar vice president U Kyaw Min Htin said the Japanese company would provide expertise on “new ways of marketing” for the Myanmar firm, and help it tap into the market for Japanese tourists.

“From this joint venture we hope more Japanese tourists – globally and from Japan – will visit Myanmar,” he said.

JTB was established in 1912, and today has branches in more than 100 countries. It holds a 60 percent stake in JTB Polestar.
