SilkAir to Codeshare with Lao Airlines

SilkAir has signed a codeshare agreement with Lao Airlines for its flights to Vientiane and Luang Prabang.

From 31 October 2016, SilkAir will offer three weekly flights on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

With the new codeshare agreement in place, customers have a choice of six weekly flights to Laos shared between both airlines.

SilkAir flights will operate in a circular routing and will depart from Singapore for Vientiane, followed by Luang Prabang, before heading back to Singapore.

Under the agreement which takes effect on 1 September 2016 (subject to regulatory approval), SilkAir will add its MI designator code to selected Lao Airlines-operated flights between Singapore, Vientiane and Luang Prabang.

On a reciprocal basis, Lao Airlines will add its QV designator code to selected SilkAir-operated flights between Singapore, Vientiane and Luang Prabang when flights commence on 31 October 2016.

The establishment of a codeshare cooperation between Lao Airlines and SilkAir will strengthen the relationship between Laos and Singapore as part of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC). This cooperation will especially help to promote the tourist and investment activities among the two countries as well as ASEAN countries, said Lao Airlines Vice President Planning & Co-operation, Mr. Sengpraseuth Mathouchanh.

Flights will be available for booking on a progressive basis through the SilkAir website, call centres and travel agents in the coming weeks.
