domestic flights in Yangon

Hello from Bagan,

We're having an amazing time. Fuller trip report to follow.

We are planning on traveling from Inle Lake to Dawei next week, without spending another night in Yangon. There are flights from Heho to Yangon (9 am arrives ~10:15) and a daily flight on Apex from Yangon to Dawei at 12:35. The flights are on different airlines and we have to check at least one suitcase and then recheck it on the second flight.

Is it possible we'll make this connection? The alternative is to fly to Yangon and then take the night train without a sleeper, possibly stopping en route in Mawlamine or Ye for a day. We took the train from Hsipaw to Pyin oo Lwin and loved it.

Better ideas welcome. I did look into buses, but we don't want to spend that much time on the bus from Inle to Dawei.

Thanks for your help!

As long as your incoming is on time you should easily make your connection.Luggage offloading is pretty swift on internal flights and normal check-in time for your next flight is 1 hour.
