Lao Skyway, formerly known as Lao Air (Lao: ລາວເດີນອາກາດ), is a private airline with its headquarters at Wattay Airport in Vientiane, Laos. It operates scheduled and charter services to airports in the country not served by Lao Airlines.

History[edit]

Lao Air was established on 24 January 2002, as a helicopter charter service company.[1] On 8 December 2003, the airline signed a lease-to-purchase agreement with Lane Xang Minerals Limited Company for the lease of a Cessna Grand Caravan to use on its charter services. The agreement signaled the start of its fixed-wing operation. On 7 October 2005, a second leased Cessna Grand Caravan was added to its fleet.

On 14 April 2007, its regular scheduled services began using the Cessna Grand Caravan.
