Major Airports in Laos

Wattay International Airport (VTE) is one of the only international airports in Laos. It is located 2 miles outside of Vientiane. It provides travellers with various shops, restaurants, a post office and an Internet cafe and boasts a new terminal for international travel. Another major airport is Luang Prabang International Airport (LPQ), situated in Northern Laos. It offers passengers a limited number of cafes and shops.

Airport Transportation in Laos

There are no trains to Wattay International Airport or to Luang Prabang International Airport. It may be possible to take a bus to Wattay Airport, but you will have to ask the driver to stop near the airport as there is no designated airport stop. This could lead to a lengthy walk from where the driver drops you off. There is also no bus to Luang Prabang Airport. The most fun and most affordable way to get to either airport is by tuk-tuk, a three wheeled motorcycle-based taxi-service. Alternatively, you can hire a more standard, four wheeled taxi to Wattay International Airport.

Interested in Erbil? Consider Al Ain

With your flights to Al Ain on Etihad Airways, you will find yourself in the beautiful Garden City where you’ll feel a distant past and return to embrace modernity all with the course of a few minutes. This land encompasses the spirit of the Emirates and preserves an ancient heritage that has earned it the designation as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Plan your Al Ain Holiday

There are a thousand reasons to travel to Al Ain: explore its modern roads in search of the most original sculptures, walk its green gardens in stark contrast to the desert that surrounds the city, look for a bargain in the old bazaar, step through the doors of its fortresses and into the past, or brave the desert sands on a camel in search of Qattara.

If you’re thinking of buying some tickets to Al Ain, keep in mind that the time preferred by residents of the nearby Abu Dhabi is the summer, so it will be harder to find flights and cheap hotels in Al Ain. It would be wise to consider a visit during the winter season when there are excellent flight deals to Al Ain and temperatures are milder.
