“EXCELLENT FLIGHT, AND SERVICE AND SPOTLESSLY CLEAN PLANE.”
“Although only a short flight it was an excellent one, with a spotlessly clean plane, excellent service from the crew. No delays, and very good check-in and check out.”Lao Airlines appointed Mr. Khamla Phommavanh as its new president in April, with a handover ceremony held at Lao Airlines headquarters.It is expected that Mr. Khamla will steer the airline through the Covid-19 crises, and revamp and revitalize the airline as international flights begin to restart.
