AirAsia Creates New Link to Laos


AirAsia has expanded its connectivity in Laos with the launch of flights between Kuala Lumpur and Luang Prabang.

Marking the first direct link between the two Southeast Asian cities, the new KL service will complement AirAsia’s existing Bangkok-Luang Prabang flights, and the direct services connecting KL and Bangkok with Vientiane.

“We are very happy to be the first and only airline to connect Luang Prabang to Kuala Lumpur directly,” said AirAsia’s CEO, Aireen Omar. “We are also pleased to be the airline that connects the people of Laos to two of the main cities in ASEAN, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur, which are both major AirAsia hubs.

“We want to further champion connectivity to second and third-tier cities, and help to grow the market together,” she added.

The new flights will depart KL every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 0645 and arrive in Luang Prabang at 0840. The return services then leave the UNESCO-listed Lao city at  0925 and arrive back in KL at 1330.
