Dhaka: Bangkok Airways started direct operations on the Chiang Mai – Luang Prabang (Laos) route to cover CLMV countries which are Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam by using Chiang Mai as a strategic flying hub.

Luang Prabang is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the city has always been a top preference to both foreigner and Thai travellers who enjoy a peaceful atmosphere and richness of local culture.

Having a link between Chiang Mai and this World Heritage City will make it easier for tourists to connect their journey to Luang Prabang (Laos) without making a stop or transit in Bangkok.

Bangkok Airways operates three flights a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) with a 70-seater ATR 72-600 aircraft. The outbound flight PG983 will depart Chiang Mai International Airport at 16.30hrs and arrive at Luang Prabang International Airport at 17.45hrs.

The inbound flight PG984 will depart Luang Prabang International Airport 18.30hrs and arrive at Chiang Mai International Airport at 19.45hrs.
