Lao Skyway, formerly known as Lao Air, is an airline based in Vientiane, the capital of Laos. Established in the 2002, Lao Skyway primarily operates domestic flights within Laos but has occasionally offered services to nearby international destinations. The airline has played a crucial role in connecting the remote regions of Laos, thereby fostering trade, tourism, and better communication within the country. Due to its focus on domestic connectivity, it’s seen as an essential airline for the local population and businesses in Laos.
Lao Skyway’s mainstay is its domestic operations. The airline connects Vientiane to other major cities and towns in Laos such as Luang Prabang, Pakse, and Xieng Khouang. Moreover, it services several smaller airports and airstrips in remote regions, providing vital links to the more isolated parts of the country.
The airline operates a fleet suited to the diverse terrains of Laos. This includes aircraft like the MA60 and Xian Y-7, which are capable of landing on shorter runways and are well-suited for regional flights.
