Actually this Air Macau route is for the Taiwan people to the Eastern part of the Pearl River Delta. There're many factories in Dongguan, where there is no international airport for this city.

Macau To Start Airport Expansion In 2007

Hopefully there will be more direct flights to Macau soon


From Macau Daily Blog

This is going to be crucial to the success of the Cotai Strip, Macau so far has received over 20 million visitors this year. It is expected that this will double by the end of 2010, so that is 40 million visitors of which more than 25% are set to arrive by air. And I think it will be more than that as the Cotai Strip will get most of its visitors from outside Asia that will be attending conferences and exhibitions. I think that Sheldon Adelson is already concerned about Macauís airport capacity and is pushing to operate ferries to Hong Kong Airport. Macauís infrastructure expansion will be crucial to its success with the casinoís and tourism.
The government of Macau plans to move ahead in 2007 with work to expand the local international airport, which this year is expected to have traffic of 5 million passengers, close to the 6 million for which it was designed, officials said.

Speaking Tuesday to journalists, the secretary of state for Transport and Public Works, Ao Man Long, said that the expansion of the aircraft parking area was being considered as this is the priority for responding to increased traffic at Macau airport.

The area between the runway and the aircraft parking bay will be filled in order to create more parking areas and making room for the increased number of private flights using Macauís airport.

As well as structural work on the airport, the Government will also build a new car and tourist bus park.

Macauís International airport was built during the territoryís Portuguese administration and opened on December 8, 1995.

HKD 4 bn in airport expansion

The Macau International Airport will invest HKD 4 billion in a five-year expansion project.

The airport has invited the Dutch consultant NACO to develop a five-year development plan, of which 14 more aprons will be constructed, making a total of 38 aprons, to process 32 flights from 24 in an hour.

The passenger building will also be expanded to process at least 8 million passengers from 6 million per year.

A footbridge will also be constructed to connect the airport with the forthcoming Pac-On maritime terminal.

The airport pointed out that the project has been submitted for Government authorisation.

Metis to launch Vancouver services
14 February 2007
South China Morning Post

Metis Transpacific Charter Airlines, a newly established Macau-based charter carrier, plans to launch non-stop flights from Macau to Vancouver in May with some seats available for as low as HK$888 for a one-way trip.

Founder Christopher Colbourne said the service, for which he is awaiting a licence, would have been launched from Hong Kong if the Civil Aviation Department had not turned down its application last year.

Stephen Kwok, the assistant director-general of the department, said: "We did receive an application for running the charter service by an airline but it withdrew its application later on."

Metis will launch a thrice-weekly service by leasing a 582-seat Boeing 747-400, which is expected to be delivered on April 28.

"Hong Kong-Vancouver is called the golden route alongside Hong Kong to London," Mr Colbourne said. "However, it is underserved, with just three daily flights operated by Cathay Pacific Airways and Air Canada."

He said the company had been assured it would get a licence from Macau soon.

Metis, which may be granted permission for charter flights over a longer period than one month if it teams with a local airline, is in advanced talks with one of the enclave's two carriers, Air Macau and Viva Macau.

It will apply for an air operator's certificate from Macau's Civil Aviation Department by the end of next year to operate scheduled flights.

"By that time, we will be in the same playing field as the major carriers today," Mr Colbourne said.

The special price for an economy-class ticket when the service launches will be HK$888 and a business-class trip costs HK$3,888, with 3 per cent of the seats available for the concession.

The price for the remaining seats was not yet available but would be competitive with existing carriers, he said.

Hong Kong's Civil Aviation Department sent Metis' then partner, an American airline, which filed the charter service application for Metis, a letter of denial in October last year, saying there was no additional demand for passenger flights between Hong Kong and Vancouver, Mr Colbourne said. He declined to identify the American airline.

Interesting

888 is very low but with 580 seats I would think that they can afford to give up 3% at that price......the more interesting is the business class at 3888.....now that's a bargin.... I hope the service is as good as they say it will be..... I saw them mentioned on Bloomberg and they were saying that they wanted to be above the service of the other carriers......

Also it's non-stop at that price which makes all the difference.... no changing planes, no stops....just go.. I am really happy to see it...finally.

Passengers can check in at HK for Macau airport flights

I guess that would make more people stay in Macau.

Passengers from Hong Kong who travel at Macau International Airport can now check in their luggage at the Macau Ferry Terminal in Sheung Wan directly.

They can now complete their flight check-in procedures at dedicated desks located at G02 of the Macau Ferry Terminal, and boarded on the ferry to Macau to go to the Macau airport to board on their flights directly without passing further passport and customs check.

Passengers wishing to use this service must go the the check-in desks 2 hours 45 minutes before their flights are due to take off.
