Canh Dieu Airlines (Kite Air) is a proposed Vietnamese carrier to be based at Chu Lai International Airport. A division of Thien Minh Aviation, the startup plans to operate scheduled services using a fleet consisting of turboprop and narrowbody aircraft. Thien Minh Group invested approximately USD43 million of charter capital into the new venture, which was expected to commence commercial operations in Jun-2020.
