LAO Airlines has signed a contract with Airbus for the purchase of two new A320 aircraft, to be delivered in October and November. The planes will be used on routes linking Vientiane to key cities in South-east Asia, including Bangkok and Singapore.
The two aircraft will feature two class-seating configurations, with 16 business-class and 126 economy-class seats.
The flag carrier’s president, Somphone Douangdara, said: “The A320 will see Lao Airlines introduce a new level of premium service as we expand our international route network.”
Somphone added that in addition to the highest standards of in-flight comfort, Lao Airlines would also benefit from the relatively low operating costs offered by the fuel-efficient A320s.
You will believe it when you see it .
Before buying or leasing aircrafts , Lao Airlines should learn marketing and key factors such as competition , price structure , promotions, space control...
Otherwise it will be another failure with the aircrafts returned to the factory or to the lessor within the second year of operation ; such failure opening widely the door to big brother Vietnam Airlines for a takeover
