FMI Air was a scheduled airline based at Yangon International Airport in Yangon, Myanmar. FMI Air operated 72 domestic flights a week to Myanmar's Capital Nay Pyi Taw, Bagan, Heho, Mandalay, Sittwe, Thandwe, Kawthaung, Myitkyina. FMI Air offered a Premium Service to both the growing corporate and leisure sectors which include complimentary access to lounges and concierge services. FMI Air had its own mobile app (FMI AIR) to assist international travellers. FMI Air commenced business in September 2012 as a charter operation under the banner of FMI Air Charter, operating about 19 flights a week chartering turboprop aircraft from other local carriers to provide a service between the commercial hub, Yangon and the capital city Nay Pyi Taw.
After successfully building this market, late in 2013 FMI Air Charter decided to apply for an AOC to begin operating its own aircraft. In March 2015, FMI Air officially launched its own operations with a scheduled service featuring an all-jet fleet of CRJ 200 aircraft, expanding its network beyond the original Yangon to Nay Pyi Taw route. FMI Air operated daily flights (17 x weekly) between the commercial hub, Yangon International Airport and Naypyidaw International Airport and also offered Charter flight services to over 20 airports around Myanmar. Unfortunately, FMI Air ceased all operations in August 2018 and is no longer flying. Please see below for airlines that fly similar routes.
The FMI Air fleet included two ATR 42/72 and three Bombardier CRJ-100 aircraft.
