Vietnam Airlines will restore a route connecting three countries in Indochina – Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.
From July 1, Vietnam's national carrier will restart its Hanoi-Luang Prabang-Siem Reap route with three weekly flights. The flight frequency will be increased to five weekly from October 30.
The trans-Indochina route is being resumed after being suspended due to the COVID -19 pandemic.
In addition, Vietnam Airlines currently operates seven flights weekly on another trans-Indochina route connecting Hanoi, Vietntiane (Laos), Phnom Penh (Cambodia), and Ho Chi Minh City.
Since 2000, Vietnam Airlines has operated flights to Siem Reap before introducing flights to Luang Prabang in 2006. Prior to the pandemic, the airline served nearly 400,000 passengers on the trans-Indochina route.
