Macau airport passenger volume up 80% during Easter 


Macau International Airport saw a surge in passenger volume during the four-day Easter holiday (March 29th – April 1st), handling 88,978 passengers, which marked an increase of 80.38 percent compared to the Easter holidays of 2023.

According to a statement from Macau airport operator CAM, Macau International Airport also managed 658 aircraft movements during the Easter, reflecting a 44.62 percent increase compared to the same period last year. In comparison with the Easter holiday of 2019, the number of passengers has recovered by 74 percent, and aircraft movements have recovered by 76 percent.

Macau Airport also notes that as the new summer flight schedule for 2024 begins, Air Macau is introducing wide-body aircraft into the Macau aviation market to enhance market flexibility.

Meanwhile, China Southern Airlines has resumed operations in the Macau market from Beijing Daxing International Airport. With this flight, passengers can now connect to European and other routes, enriching travel options between Macau and the Beijing – Tianjin – Hebei region.

CAM also mentions in the statement that Macau International Airport will continue to ‘develop medium and long-haul routes while actively cooperating with airlines to develop connecting flights.’

Services such as “one ticket to the final destination” and baggage check will facilitate Macau residents and tourists from all over the world via Macau International Airport to connect to destinations in Europe, the United States, and elsewhere. The airport operator believes that the initiative could develop a diversified range of direct and connecting international flights, enhancing Macau’s connectivity with the world.
