Macau’s airport operator, Macau International Airport Co Ltd (CAM), states that in the fourth quarter of this year, the airport’s aviation hub is expected to operate around 564 flights per week, or almost 50% of the same time in 2019. Presently, the airport handles 50 aircraft each day, 20 of which go to various Asia-Pacific locations and 30 of which service Greater China.
Aircraft routes to Southeast Asia and Taiwan are likely to trail mainland China as the top destinations for incoming flights to Macau in the fourth quarter, according to CAM.
According to Simon Chan Weng Hong, the chairman of CAM’s executive committee, up to 4.5 million passenger trips are anticipated to come through the airport in 2023. This corresponds to almost 47 percent of the 9.61 million passengers that were handled in 2019, the last full trading year before to the COVID-19 outbreak. In addition, he forecast that it would take until “2025 or 2026” for traffic at Macau’s airport to reach pre-pandemic levels.
