Thai AirAsia to launch daily Bangkok-Luang Prabang flight in March



Budget airline Thai AirAsia is all set to add Luang Prabang in northern Laos to its destinations, making the Unesco’s World Heritage Site and former capital of Laos much more accessible and affordable to all.
Thai AirAsia’s service between Bangkok and Luang Prabang will begin on March 24. 
Flight FD 1030 will depart Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport at 2.10pm and arrive at Luang Prabang International Airport at 3.30pm. The return flight FD1031 will leave Luang Prabang at 4.45pm before landing in Bangkok at 6.05pm.
Tucked away in Northern Laos, Luang Prabang is the historic royal capital of Laos. Also known as “Chiang Thong” (Golden City), Luang Prabang shares similar latitude and climate to Chiang Rai – Thailand’s northernmost province – making it an ideal winter destination for Thai travellers. 
Located at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers, Luang Prabang draws many young and independent travellers for its beautiful temples and the “slow life” experience.
The arrival of a low-cost airline in Luang Prabang is expected to draw thousands more tourists every year.
