The company was first incorporated and licensed as "Air Speed Up" in May 2008. The Vietnamese name, Tng Tc, as spelled, means "speed up"; however, if written without accents (i.e., Tang Toc), the name would translate to "death and grief".

Initially, company chairman H Hng Dng planned to purchase the Viet Airways brand owned by Jetstar Pacific Airlines, but Jetstar Pacific declined the sale, citing the desire to develop the Viet Airways brand in the future.
Indochina Airlines ended service to all destinations in November 2009. While active, it served the following destinations:
