Air Mekong’s licence revoked by regulator


Ho Chi Minh City-based Air Mekong has had its operating licence revoked by the Vietnamese Ministry of Transport after it failed to submit any plans regarding its resumption of operations, according to Vietnam’s Thanh Nien News. The airline, which ceased operations in 2011, submitted restructuring and financial reports to the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam in March last year, but failed to indicate any further plans of resuming services. Under Vietnamese law, aviation-related businesses can lose their operating licenses if they are inactive for 12 or more months. Established in 2009, Air Mekong operated a domestic Vietnamese network using a fleet of four leased CRJ-900s.
