Vietnam Airlines to Resume Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia Connecting Flight

Vietnam Airlines will restart its flight connecting the three major cities of Hanoi, Luang Prabang, and Siem Reap starting in July. 

VNExpress reports that the airlines will operate three flights per week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and subject to demand, the frequency of flights will increase to five at the end of October this year.

The trans-Indochina route was suspended for years due to the Covid-19 pandemic; however, this flight is expected to stimulate the recovery of the regional tourism industry, trade, investment, and cultural exchange among Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

According to the report, Vietnam’s flag carrier also operates seven flights per week on a route connecting its capital city of Hanoi, Vientiane in Laos, Phnom Penh in Cambodia, and the southern Vietnamese city of Ho Chi Minh.

The airlines started flights to Siem Reap in 2000 and Luang Prabang in 2006, while in 2019, the carrier transported nearly 400,000 passengers on its trans-Indochina routes.
