Luang Prabang province is eager to get direct-flight connections with Dien Bien Phu province in Vietnam. Local authorities from both provinces have held talks already and agreed to establish direct flights in-between the two provincial capitals.

The Lao government has given the green light for direct flights between the two cities.

The Vietnamese Dien Bien Phu provincial authorities have submitted their request to their central government in Hanoi for consideration and approval.
Upon approval the two cities will be linked by direct flights as soon as possible.

Direct flights between the two cities would attract more visitors to both provinces. Dien Bien Phu province with its former Indochina War battlefield has a high tourism potential, so does the World Heritage site listed town of Luang Prabang with its colorful culture and traditions.

Therefore it is believed that the establishment of a direct air link will be beneficial to both cities and provinces.
