Mekong Aviation Joint Stock Company[1] (Vietnamese: Công ty Cổ phần Hàng không Mê Kông[2]), doing business as Air Mekong, was an airline from Vietnam which operated scheduled passenger flights from its base at Phu Quoc Airport and secondary hubs at Noi Bai International Airport and Tan Son Nhat International Airport. Its headquarters were located in Phú Quốc, Kiên Giang Province. It was established in 2009 and flight operations were launched on 9 October 2010. This is the third private-owned airline of Vietnam, after Indochina Airlines (defunct as of 2009), and VietJet Air. Air Mekong leased four Bombardier CRJ 900 aircraft from SkyWest Airlines, each equipped with 90 seats in both business and economy classes.[3][4][5][6] In 2011, Air Mekong operated 10,750 flights and carried about 710 thousand passengers.[7]

Air Mekong is a member of BIM Group. Other shareholders are SkyWest, Inc. and Eximbank.[8]
