We chose this airline after reading on the internet, that some airlines in Myanmar are not that safe. KBZ was really easy - booked at the hotel - checkin and gate went smoothly and it's just like a normal flight in Europe.

Very happy with the service - although we only had 6 precious days and totally wished we could fly the other way around. there was no way of flying from beach to Mandalay so we had to fly back to Yangon!!! wish there were more options. But the price is good and service impecible. The smaller airports are funny because...

This was our second time flying air KBZ. they fly ATR 72s that are rather new and in good condition. Cabin staff is nice and friendly, and even on short flights, they serve a beverage. Flights were on time. Only drawback is that hey are rather expensive having a two tier pricing: foreigners pay about twice as much as Burmese...

Very comfortable propeller planes. Excellent service on board. A little meal on board even for a very short flight. Always on time as far as I was concerned (five flights).

KBZ is a bank but they own an airline, which operates internal flights within Myanmar. Took four flights with them in total. Small planes (turbo-props) which were obviously sourced second hand (many notices were in Italian). Two flights were late arriving/ taking off. Service was OK, snacks poor, no alcoholic drinks. Small planes and lower altitudes make for a slightly...

Nice and smooth short flight, We were in doubt with this airline due to comments on the web, but it turned out well organized and cabin crew and airport staff very friendly. For a 30-minute flight, its fare of USD 155.42 appears high. Regarding its services, I'd recommend it.

Flying on a ATR 72, French / Italian built aircraft....initially introduced in 1988...not sure how old this particular plane was....but happily, everything worked. From the time we checked in at Mandalay International Airport, to arrival at the "regional" domestic Heho Airport, flight was great! This twin turbo prop plane was powerful and smooth, and amazingly, it handled crosswinds extremely well....

I am quite a savvy flyer but I must have missed a trick as this flight was not only indirect, but it had 2 stops (Mandalay and Heho). This made a 1 hr flight about 2.5 hrs which was irritating. However, all 3 legs were very smooth and efficient.
