Lao Airlines will resume direct flights from Vientiane to Da Nang City in central Vietnam on March 30.

The Da Nang-Vientiane air route will see two flights per week on Thursdays and Sundays.

Noudeng Chanthaphasouk, commercial director of Lao Airlines, said that the resumption of the direct route, favored by a large number of tourists before the Covid-19 outbreak, will meet increasing demand of visitors in the region after the removal of travel restrictions caused by the pandemic.

Lao Airlines previously operated the route to Da Nang with stops at Pakxe and Champasak in southern Laos, using ATR72-600 aircraft. However, the carrier dropped the Pakxe stop and started nonstop flights just weeks before the two-year pandemic brought all international flights to a halt.

Later this month, it will use airbus A320, with a flight time of 1 hour and 15 minutes and a round-trip ticket costing about 4.8 million LAK (US$290).

Earlier, Lao Airlines resumed direct flights to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City right after the country reopen its door for international tourism on May 9, 2022.
