The chartered flight is introduced with the aim of developing tourism service and trade between India's northeast region and Myanmar's northern Mandalay region.
Using ART-72-690 aircraft manufactured by France, the airline will fly the route twice a week, offering 69 seats to passengers.
With regard to the flight, state media quoted India's Manipur state administration as saying that India has relaxed the protected area permit system to two-year validity for Myanmar citizens, adding that visa-on-arrival is being arranged for Myanmar visitors also.
The new flight schedule will contribute towards the ASEAN-India trade service and investment, traders said.
Mandalay International Airport handles flight facilities at the ground station for Bangkok Airline, Indian Airline, Kunming Airline and Silk Airline.
There is a total of 24 international airlines flying Myanmar with seven other airlines operating domestically.
