Lao Skyway is a relatively new domestic airline that has been operating in Laos since 2017. The airline is owned by the Lao Skyway Group, which is a subsidiary of the Phongsavanh Group – one of the largest business conglomerates in Laos.
Lao Skyway operates regular flights to many of the major towns and cities in Laos, such as Vientiane, Luang Prabang, Pakse, and Savannakhet. The airline also operates charter flights to a range of destinations in Laos and neighboring countries.
In terms of tourism, the introduction of Lao Skyway has brought new opportunities for visitors to explore more of Laos, particularly in the remote and hard-to-reach areas of the country. This has led to the development of new tourism products and experiences, such as eco-tourism, adventure tours, and cultural tourism.
Lao Skyway’s domestic flights have also helped to boost the local economy by making travel more accessible and affordable for both domestic and international tourists. With its modern fleet of aircraft and focus on safety, Lao Skyway has become a popular choice for travelers seeking a convenient and reliable way to explore Laos.
However, it’s worth noting that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on tourism in Laos, as it has in many other countries around the world. As of mid-2021, many travel restrictions and measures remain in place to prevent the spread of the virus. As a result, the full potential of Lao Skyway’s contribution to tourism in Laos may not be realized for some time yet.
