Airports & Airlines

There are four international airports in Laos: Wattay International Airport in Vientiane, Luang Prabang International Airport, Savannakhet International Airport and Pakse International Airport.

Lao Airlines is the national carrier and monopolises the majority of flights in and out of the country.


The most convenient international gateway to Laos is Bangkok. Luckily there are plenty of flights to the Thai capital, but fares fluctuate sharply. Generally, it is cheaper to take an indirect flight to Bangkok with a stop on the way. Once in Bangkok, there are trains, planes and buses heading to Laos.

Buying direct from the airline is usually more expensive, unless the airline has a special promotion or you are flying with a budget carrier offering online deals. The time of year has a major impact on flight prices. Starting out from Europe, North America or Australia, figure on prices rising dramatically over Christmas and during July and August, and dropping significantly during lax periods of business like February, June and October.
