Bangkok Airways and Lao Airlines in Codeshare Partnership
Laos’ national carrier, Lao Airlines, has reported that it will cease direct Laos-Singapore flights from Mar 25 due to "operational reasons". In a Facebook update on Monday (Mar 12), the airline said it will resume flight schedules “as soon as it is ready for operation upon further notice”. This is the second time that direct flights between the two countries have been delayed, and comes just five months after Lao Airlines relaunched direct Singapore-Lao flight services in late-October last year.
The exact date for the inauguration and ticket prices are still unknown, but details will be announced at a later date, an official of the airlines told the Vientiane Times yesterday.
Aircraft will fly three times a week on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, according to the plan.
“The precise date to begin to operate the flight and air ticket price is still unknown. Details are expected to be announced soon and passengers can follow our official website or facebook site,” the official said.
The new air route will be the first regulated direct flight that the Lao national flag carrier operates to Japan. Previously, Lao Airlines operated shuttle flight to Japan, but stopped operating this service.
The company said in its announcement on Monday that the new air route was expected to boost economic development, investment and trade in Laos as well as the inflow of visitors to the country.
The planned opening of the new air route is also in line with the will of the government.
Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith told his Japanese counterpart, Shinzo Abe during their meeting in June in Japan that Laos hoped to increase the exchange of people and goods by establishing direct flights between Laos and Japan promptly.
Lao Airlines now flies to major cities in Cambodia, China, Republic of Korea, Thailand and Vietnam. Domestically, Lao Airlines operates flights to the provinces of Luang Namtha, Oudomxay, Luang Prabang, Xieng Khuang, Savannakhet and Champassak.
Recently, the airline announced it would re-launch direct flights from Vientiane’s Wattay International Airport to Singapore’s Changi International Airport starting on October 29 after halting the flight earlier this year.
In addition, the company plans to operate direct flights to additional destinations in Myanmar, Indonesia and on the island of Taiwan.
Along with its expansion, the company has registered growing numbers of passengers using its service.
In 2011, more than 531,000 passengers travelled with Lao Airlines and numbers climbed to more than 658,000 in 2012.
In 2015, more than 828,000 passengers flew with Lao Airlines including more than 504,000 foreign customers. Numbers rose to 924,924 people in 2016 including 543,422 foreigners.
An official of the company’s Marketing Department said the planned launch of the direct flight to Japan was to handle the growing air transport need, especially foreign visitors.
In 2016, Laos registered more than 4.23 million foreign visitors in total. Tourists from Japan accounted for almost 50,000, an increase from the 43,826 recorded in 2015, according to an information from the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism.
Earlier in 2017, Lao Airlines halted direct flights from Lao capital Vientiane to Singapore, for a number of unspecified reasons. However, the route is being re-launched beginning at the end of October, local daily Vientiane Times noted on Thursday.
The new flights between Vientiane and Singapore will begin on October 29 with fares starting at 155 U.S. dollars and can be bookable through their website.
The re-launch of the route from Laos to Singapore is expected to boost the economic development in terms of the influx of foreign tourists, investment and trade over the years to come.
Last year, two-way trade between the countries reached 30 million U.S. dollars, more than doubling from 13 million U.S. dollars recorded in 2015. In the same year, over 6,000 Singaporean tourists visited Laos. Singaporean investors invested 187 million U.S. dollars in 79 projects in Laos, making Singapore the 11th largest foreign investment source.
At the end of 2016, Singapore's SilkAir resumed its Singapore-Vientiane-Luang Prabang flight, which flies three times a week providing a convenient travel route to help boost investment and tourism cooperation.
In the joint commitment, SilkAir has set to offer more flights to Laos under a code-share agreement with Lao Airlines.
