The passenger volume at the Macau International Airport (MIA) has increased steadily, reaching 60 percent of the levels registered during the same period in 2019, prior to the pandemic, the public company responsible for the airport’s operations revealed.

Macau International Airport Co., Ltd. indicated that its handled passenger volume exceeded 550,000 in July, with the average daily passenger volume reaching 17,000. 

The passenger volume in July was up 28 percent compared to June, with the airport recording more than 4,000 flights a month, an increase of 10 percent from the previous month. 

In order to meet the growing demand for travel, MIA announced its plan to resume the “Express Link” service late this month with the official launch of the Macau International Airport Check-In Centre on the ground floor at the Macau Frontier Port of Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB). 

Passengers who travel via HZMB will be able to directly take the “Express Link” bus service to the restricted area of MIA after completing the check-in procedures at the Centre.

The MIA “Service Center” in Jiangmen and Zhongshan is planned to resume operations in 4Q23, expecting to provide a more convenient, efficient, and comfortable travel experience for passengers in the Greater Bay Area.

Macau authorities are planning to expand the Macau International Airport, with the reclamation project to start in the second half of 2024. Completion is expected in 2029.
