Hong Kong Airlines Commences Flights to Vientiane

Hong Kong Airlines has launched direct services to Vientiane, Laos, further boosting its expanding network in the region.

Using Airbus A320 aircraft, Hong Kong Airlines operates weekly flights between Hong Kong International Airport and Vientiane Wattay International Airport in Laos, offering both business and leisure travellers an unparalleled opportunity to explore the wonders of this captivating country.

Strategically located in the heart of Southeast Asia, bordering China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar, Laos is seen as an important country in the context of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, linking Southwest China and Southeast Asia, facilitating economic cooperation, trade and tourism between the two regions.

Hong Kong Airlines’ HX562 departs Hog Kong on Saturdays at 1455 and arrives in Laos at 1620. The return service, HX563, departs Vientiane at 17.20 and arrives in Hong Kong at 2040.

Hong Kong Airlines has launched direct services to Vientiane, Laos, further boosting its expanding network in the region.  

“Operating routes along the Belt and Road Initiative is strategically important for Hong Kong Airlines,” says Gary Zhan, President of Hong Kong Airlines. “Over the years, we have been operating scheduled flights to destinations along the Belt and Road, including Denpasar in Indonesia, Bangkok in Thailand, Seoul in Korea and over 10 cities in Mainland China. With the addition of Vientiane service, Hong Kong Airlines will continue to contribute to the development and strengthening of the Belt and Road Initiative by fostering connectivity and promoting collaboration.”

“In fact, since our restructuring was completed in last April, we have regained a healthy operating track over the last year and reconnected with the world by gradually resuming routes and opening new destinations,” says Zhan. “We have been actively expanding our fleet and recruiting locally and globally to meet the demands of our business recovery and growth.  Currently, our route network covers close to 30 destinations#, and the average passenger load factor has returned to 85%.
