MFM | Macau International Airport

Macau International is located just west of Hong Kong. It serves primarily mainland and Taiwanese transit passengers. Taiwanese are not allowed to fly directly to China, so they have to make a stopover in Hong Kong or Macau before flying into China. Macau's flag carrier, Air Macau, is owned by the same parent as Hong Kong's Dragonair.

Macau is located across the Pearl River from Hong Kong. In fact, it is very close to HKG. Oftentimes airplanes will fly over Macau as they descend into HKG from the west.

Which government is preventing direct flights between Taiwan and Mainland China?

No direct flights can fly between China and Taiwan, hence Taiwanese tourists and businessmen fly to Hong Kong or Macau before continuing to China.

Hong Kong and Macau airlines are free to fly to either China or Taiwan.

HKSKYLINE, that's not what I'm asking. I wanted to know which government prohibits its planes from flying to the "other" China? In other words, would mainland China allow nonstop flights, but Taiwan refuses to allow this, or would Taiwan allow nonstop flights, but mainland China refuses it, or do they both prohibit it? Catch my drift?

Both sides won't allow each other's airlines to fly in and out.

Interesting!

I was wondering, I know that Taiwanese can visit and do business and own factories on the Mainland, but can Mainland Chinese do the same in Taiwan?

We don't hear a lot about Chinese investment in Taiwan, but I found an article about it :

Portuguese colony is the reason for TAP's shares in Air Macau.

Air Macau Resumes Weekly Flights to S. Korea

SEOUL, July 14 Asia Pulse - Air Macau resumed weekly flights between Incheon and Macao in more than five years on Wednesday, the Ministry of Construction and Transportation said.
The weekly flights, suspended in 1997 in the aftermath of the Asia-wide economic crisis, will increase to four from the current three starting from August, according to the ministry.

"It will be more convenient for Koreans to travel to Macao during the holiday season this year," a ministry official said.
