Macau’s flagship carrier, Air Macau, saw a continuous increase in international tourists to Macau, according to company data, with nearly 7,000 ticket sales weekly for overseas flights, as the uptick kept at 20 percent weekly.
Air Macau plans to resume flights to more destinations in the near future in response to emerging demand. From next Sunday (March 26th), Air Macau will gradually increase the frequency of international and regional routes to Japan, South Korea, Thailand, and Taiwan. At the same time, it will open new routes to Singapore and Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport. The carrier is planning to even further increase its flight frequency to its planned routes, even as it expands throughout the year to new destinations.
Air Macau said that in order to speed up the rollout of international routes from Macau to Northeast Asia and Southeast Asia and to expand to the international market, the company has sent delegates to many countries to discuss and meet with the aviation authorities.
The Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) has also made effort to lure international visitors, through events such as tradeshows and expo participation, joining an international travel fair in Malaysia last weekend.
At the end of this month, the same office will join the National Association of Travel Agents of Singapore’s General Membership Meeting, aiming to rebuild connections with tour operators in the merlion city.
