Can you fly direct to Laos from Australia?

There are no flights that go from Australia to Laos directly. Melbourne Airport to Vientiane Wattay Airport, Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport to Vientiane Wattay Airport, and Brisbane Airport to Vientiane Wattay Airport are popular non-direct routes for this connection.

Depending on the airline and the itinerary, connecting flights normally take between 11 and 15 hours.

There are a few charter airlines that fly straight from Australia to Laos, however, these flights are usually more expensive.
