Thai, Cambodia airlines to establish new routes via Macau airport

Really Cool Airlines of Thailand and AirAsia Cambodia are to add to Southeast Asia routes operating from the Macau International Airport.

In a recent statement, the company responsible for operating MIA indicated that Really Cool Airlines of Thailand will start operating routes between Thailand and Macau, while AirAsia Cambodia has confirmed operating a Phnom Penh-Macau route.

Founded in March 2023, Really Cool Airlines expects to receive its Thai air operator’s certificate in the first quarter of 2024 and to launch operations in the second quarter.

A delegation from the Macau airport attended the Route Development Forum for Asia held from 27th to 29th February 2024 in Malaysia, to establish contacts and seek new opportunities for co-operation.

As of February 2024, MIA operated 213 round-trip flights per week to 18 cities in Southeast Asia and Northeast Asia, with the airport operator noting that airline operations have returned to about 40 per cent of the pre-pandemic level.
The overall passenger volume has also exceeded 600,000 for the first time after the pandemic.

The airport operating company also noted that representatives from Nepalese and Sri Lankan Airlines were interested in the Macau market and hoped to develop charter flights to and from Macau in the fourth quarter of 2024.

Meanwhile, Turkish Airlines, which previously held discussions to establish routes between Europe and Macau, has also expressed its interest in the Macau market and its willingness to cooperate with other airlines to develop the market. Macau Business khmertimeskh
