Note: Air Mekong has stopped its operation as of March 1st, 2013
Air Mekong is a brand new airline in Vietnam, which started in 2010 that mostly exploits the domestic airways. Aircrafts of this airline connect many popular tourist destinations in Vietnam such as Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Phu Quoc, Nha Trang, Can Tho or Dalat.
As Air Mekong is based in Phu Quoc, it concentrates majorly on operating direct flights between major cities such as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and Phu Quoc Island. Domestic flights offered by Air Mekong is getting more and more popular for its lower costs yet quality service.
The only disadvantage is that Air Mekong operates mostly smaller aircrafts so each flight can have an intake of around 100 passengers only, limiting the customer base who can use the flight service of Air Mekong. Still, it has a lot of potential in attracting more passengers in the future.
Flights from Hanoi to Phu Quoc by Air Mekong cost about $85 one way and Hanoi - Dalat trips cost $50. From Ho Chi Minh City, Air Mekong has five daily flights to Phu Quoc and six to Hanoi. From Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City, if you book early for an Eco Flex ticket, the deal can get to as low as $130 for a round trip ticket.
