Before you book – Myanmar is still politically unstable country, please check visa requirements with their closest embassy as it should be still essential to have the visa ready in advance and not available upon arrival (in case of your flight is from Bangkok). The cheapest solution to Myanmar is based on two tickets. First one is with Etihad Airways on route Geneva to Myanmar with return back from Bangkok or Phuket to Europe. You would have to book additional one way ticket for example with Air Asia which are available already for $45 (€37) on route Yangon to Bangkok Don Mueng and for $59 (€49) on route Mandalay to Bangkok. Please note that Air Asia is calling Don Mueng airport. As your return flight back to Europe is from Suvarnabhumi International airport (BKK) we strongly recommend to fly from Myanmar to Bangkok at least one day in advance. It is mandatory to have booked your return ticket from Myanmar before you depart from Europe. Another solution how to reach Myanmar would be to book open-jaw flights to Bangkok (already for €298 – check this deal here) then book return flight from Myanmar back to Bangkok.
