capabilities across their networks to ensure a seamless experience
for travelers. We’re pleased to support our partners Res2 and Lao
Airlines through its growth and expansion and look forward to a
bright future with the optimizations gained with iPort DCS.”
Although the company’s origin dates back to 1976,
Lao Airlines was established in 1989 and normally operates flights to
6 domestic destinations and more than 18 international airports.

Mr. Khamla Phommavong, CEO at Lao Airlines, said,
“Being the national carrier, connecting Laos to the world, Lao
Airlines requires a reliable partner that can support our
operations in our entire network. iPort DCS has the capabilities
to serve in all our stations while offering the required
functionality a full-service carrier needs. It eases our mind to
have a one-stop-shop for departure control, including airport
connectivity, deployment, operational and security messaging.
Implementing iPort DCS enables us to act cost-conscious, an asset
in turbulent times for the industry after the Corona pandemic.”
