Talking about the Yangon route, William Boulter, chief commercial officer (CCO), IndiGo said: “We see significant traffic coming from Yangon to the Buddhist circuit, thereby enhancing economic growth and tourism in India. This new route will strengthen the cultural relationship between the two countries and will boost trade, tourism and mobility.”
