Hi victoria1610_13

There is a "FLIGHTS" tab up in this page and you can check flights prices. The cheapest will be Vietnam Airline (585 USD) but the duration is horrible ! You will need around 18 hours to reach LP from Yangon.

The shortest flight (6-7hours) will be with BKK Airways, Lao Airline, Thai Airways but the price will be much higher. You will need to pay 1200+ - 1400 per person.

I have tried to check Air Asia website, but seems there is no flights running between Yangon and LP neither from BKK to Laos.

Good luck

Regards,

Hi victoria1610_13

No budget options when you fly to LP

One way will cost around $250 US

Bangkok Airways have 2 morning flights to BKK from Yangon 6:15 and 10:30, and one flight from BKK to LP in the afternoon 14:45. Most likely you would be ticketed through with this option, only other option would be Thai International if you want to be ticketed through to LP.

Also with Bangkok Air you will have access to their International Lounge.

You can fly Air Asia from Yangon to Bangkok, for as little as $110 return, but will need a full price airline like Bangkok Airways from Bangkok to LP.

With AirAsia you will need to change airports, DMK to BKK. Then BKK to DMK for the return.

At Don Mueang Airport you will need clear immigration collect your luggage then get a bus or taxi to Suvarnabhumi Airport, 2+ hours before your flight to LP. You will then have the reverse with your return flights

Using AirAsia will save you some money; the largest part of the cost is the LP leg.
