Getting around by air

Sam Neua's little Nathong Airport is 3km east of the centre towards Vieng Xai. Lao Skyway, which is based here, flies to Vientiane on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday (US$62, 1½ hours). All too frequently the flights get cancelled just before departure. At the time of writing, there was no flight to Phonsavan.
