Spring Airlines Flying to Macau
16 March 2011

SHANGHAI, March 16, SinoCast -- Spring Airlines, China's first low-cost air carrier, March 15 announced its entry into Macau's aviation market with the lowest-priced air tickets sold at CNY 199 or MOP 199.

From April 8, the air carrier will formally start a daily two-way flight service between Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Macau International Airport, with the support of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), the Civil Aviation Authority of Macau, and Macau International Airport Co., Ltd.

Spring Airlines, headquartered in Shanghai, east China, will serve passengers with the 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft model on the new route. It will try to attract more tourists to Macau with low-priced air tickets.

In June 2009, the Shanghai-based air carrier announced that it got the permission to fly between Mainland China and Hong Kong, Macao, and several neighboring countries. Moreover, the CAAC allowed the Chinese private air carrier to apply for international flights from mainland cities outside Shanghai.

1 April 2011

MACAO, April 1 (PNA/Xinhua) -- A budget airline of the Philippines has announced a new route between Macao and Clark International Airport, the Macao Post Daily reported on Friday.

The newspaper quoted the airline, namely Spirit of Manila Airlines, as saying that the inaugural flight will take off from Clark to Macao on April 17. The airport lies about 90 kilometers from Manila.

Flights have been scheduled twice a week on Mondays and Fridays, departing from Macao International Airport at 8 a.m. to international airport in the Clark Special Economic Zone, according to the airline.

Each flight will take approximately an hour and 45 minutes and the MD 83 aircraft flying the route has a capacity of 165 passengers.

Spirit of Manila Airlines, which was established in 2008, said it hoped to promote travel between the Philippines and Macao and expand its route network to Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan and selected cities in Chinese mainland. (PNA/Xinhua)

Unlimited flights to Japan by 2013
18/07/2011 06:42:00
Macau Daily Times

Airlines will be able to operate seven flights per week to Japan next year, and all limitation will be axed in 2013, according to the new agreement inked by Japanese and Macau authorities on Thursday.

According to a statement, the Civil Aviation Authority of Macau (AACM), the Civil Aviation Bureau and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan met in Macau on Wednesday and Thursday to renew the record of discussions (ROD) relating to air services between the two places.

Under the new treaty, Japan agreed to increase the Tokyo capacity to the Macau designated airline – Air Macau – with seven flights per week from 2012 and then eliminate all Tokyo capacity restrictions from 2013 after boosting the capacity at Narita Airport.

“Japan has agreed to grant fifth freedom traffic rights to the Macau designated airline for all points in Japan, except Tokyo. The new ROD has created more advantageous conditions for the operation of air services by the Macau designated airline,” said the statement issued by the AACM.

In accordance with the old ROD signed in 2009, Macau could fly to all points in Japan with no restrictions. However, the operation to Tokyo Narita Airport was only limited to three flights per week.

It is also the first time that fifth freedom rights are granted to Macau by the Japanese government. “From 2013 summer schedule when the capacity at Narita Airport has increased, the [designated] airline is allowed to operate flights to Tokyo with unlimited frequencies,” they said.

The local flag airline can enjoy fifth freedom rights for all points in Japan except Tokyo. As for code-sharing for Japanese domestic segments, the old ROD only permitted up to five segments with two frequencies per segment. The new ROD has lifted these restrictions.

Furthermore, Macau expressed its wish to operate at the Haneda Airport, but will have to wait for available slots.

Affected by the earthquake and Tsunami in March this year and the radiation impact that followed afterwards, Japan is looking to further liberalise its skies in order to boost tourism, a sector that has been most affected by the economic downturn.

Macau now a drug transit point: PJ
13/07/2011
Macau Daily Times

Macau has become a transit point for international drug trafficking, warned director of the Judiciary Police (PJ) Wong Sio Chak yesterday.

Speaking at the award ceremony of the 51st anniversary of the PJ, Wong disclosed that in spite of drug offence numbers remaining steady, the amount of illicit drugs seized at the Macau International Airport and the rapid changes in the means of drug trafficking showed that “Macau has already become a transit point for international drug trafficking”.

The situation deserves special concern and immediate countermeasures, he added.

Macau’s position as gateway to mainland China along with the increasing number of budget airline flights, had already raised concerns that the territory may be used as a transit point for drug trafficking. Smuggling routes that originate in the Golden Crescent, primarily Afghanistan, the largest opium producer in the world, may increase to include Macau.

The PJ handled 1,627 drug related cases between 2000 and the end of March 2011. The majority of the seizures were heroin with a street value totalling more than MOP 58 million.

Last year alone, 191 drug offences were detected, according to official figures, with most cases being drug trafficking. The PJ also reported 191 arrests, the highest number of drug-related cases since 2001. Between June 2010 and May 2011, there were 99 instances of drug trafficking.

Early this year the PJ had acknowledged that there had been “an upward trend since the first ever case of drug smuggling by means of internal concealment was intercepted in Macau in 2006”.

Thus, the director said the PJ will reinforce inspection at various borders and be equipped with “advanced drug-detection devices”. The police force will also increase monitoring and raids at casinos and encourage the public to report drug crimes.

Furthermore, Wong said that the PJ will strengthen intelligence exchanges further with other countries and regions, especially concerning cross-border crimes, the latest trend of modus operandi and even terrorist activities, to implement effective operations to prevent and crack down on drug offences.
On the other hand, between June 2010 and May 2011, the PJ received 10,150 new cases, down 4.1 percent over the same period between mid-2009 and mid-2010.

Wong said there was 1 murder, 2 kidnappings, 25 ‘deprivation of one’s freedom of movement’, 24 cases of extortion, 34 arson cases, 158 loan-sharking for gambling purposes, 6 crime syndicates, 1,689 thefts as well as 146 robbery cases during the period.

Compared with the preceding 12 months, the PJ chief said cases of murder dropped significantly by 66.7 percent, extortion decreased 36.8 percent and robbery also dropped down 29.5 percent.

There was a “notable increase” in ‘deprivation of one’s freedom of movement’, theft and also computer crime, he added.

In addition, Wong said the renovation of the new PJ headquarters building, in the old premises of the Central Government Liaison Office, is expected to be completed at the end of 2012 and the police force can then move to a more spacious office area in early 2013.

Body scanner ‘won’t breach privacy’: PJ
21/07/2011 06:15:00
Macau Daily Times

The Judiciary Policy (PJ) guaranteed that the new body scanning machine that will be placed at the airport “won’t breach privacy”, as it will only be used in specific areas.

Responding to some concerns of residents, the PJ made it clear that the x-ray machine won’t be installed at exit and entry points of the airport, they said in a statement.

Instead, it will be set up in “specific areas of the airport where the PJ usually operates”. “It won’t be installed on the normal areas through which passengers flow.”

The body scanning machine will become operational early next month to assist in combating drug trafficking, by helping the police in the crackdown of smuggling illicit drugs internally.

CAM to buy ADA for MOP 30 million
01/08/2011 20:08:00
Macau Daily Times

Macau International Airport Company (CAM) is close to reaching a deal to purchase the Administration of Airports (ADA), which currently runs the local airport’s daily operations.

The deal “is likely to be settled this week,” a source told Macau Daily Times. However, “everything is still being discussed and nothing has been put down in black and white,” the person added.

The deal to purchase the Sino-Portuguese joint venture between CNAC - China National Aviation Corporation (Macau) and ANA - Aeroportos de Portugal will be concluded for about MOP 30 million, according to a source quoted by TDM on Friday.

But that may not be the final sum. “Both sides are discussing final details and the price of the deal has not been set while talks are ongoing,” the source told MDTimes.

China National Aviation Corporation, ADA’s biggest shareholder with 51 percent of the company, is now analysing CAM’s proposal and a decision is expected soon. “ANA is also expected to provide an answer this week,” the person said.

CAM wants to buy ADA as a whole in order to retain the entire management structure, including existing personnel. But the company may not be alone in the deal, the source said.

ADA will maintain its structure but it will have two new shareholders. CAM will be the major stakeholder but another company will be included as a partner, the source said without identifying the third party.

Although the final procedures are not yet completed, CAM executive director Sunning Liu told TDM on Friday that ADA employees could rest assured about their jobs.

“ADA employees are valuable assets to the airport. Therefore, CAM will endeavour to safeguard their employment under the new model of airport management,” CAM chairman Deng Jun stressed last March.

But precaution must prevail, the source said, adding that some people will have to renegotiate their contracts. “Common sense tells us we must wait and see what the terms of the agreement are and what steps CAM takes after signing the deal.”

ADA has been responsible for maintaining most of the airport’s day-to-day functions, including logistics, safety equipment, the aerodrome and financial functions since 1995 but its contract will expire on September 11.

In March the CAM chairman announced that the contract would not be renewed. ADA’s initial 15-year contract with CAM was renewed in 2009 but only for two years.

“On the principle of ‘safety, effectiveness and efficiency,’ the board of directors decided that CAM, as the airport concessionaire, will set up a new management structure” for the airport, he said.

The management revamp “is only a part of a wider reform” of the airport, the executive added.

Two weeks ago an airport development master plan was disclosed, suggesting the expansion of parking areas for private jets and small planes and the construction of a transport hub complex at Pac On, connecting the airport with the new Taipa Ferry Terminal.

Media union slams aviation regulator
25/07/2011 06:07:00
Macau Daily Times

The Macau Civil Aviation Authority (AACM) acted in a “discriminatory” manner by disclosing an airport masterplan to a selected group of media representatives, the Macau Portuguese and English Press Association (AIPIM) accused.

On Thursday a few local media were invited to a media lunch, “which was nothing but a press conference in which preliminary data of a study on the expansion of the Macau International Airport were disclosed,” AIPIM wrote in an open letter to the head of AACM, Simon Chan Weng Hong.

Although “it was not a formal presentation of the study’s final report,” the association believes AACM “has the duty to inform every media in the same manner and at the same time” and should not, “based on undisclosed criteria, select merely a few”.

Not sure whether all the stats in the last paragraph are accurate.

Airport passenger traffic recovers
05/09/2011 09:51:00
Macau Daily Times

Passenger traffic at the Macau International Airport increased 8.8 percent year-on-year to almost 396,000 in August, completing a three-month rising trend. According to a press statement it was the highest figure recorded so far this year.

The last three months show an improvement in the airport’s performance after consecutive year-on-year decreases between August 2010 and May 2011.

The comeback began in June when passenger traffic increased by five percent to top 343,000 and continued in July with a 6.3 percent growth to more than 379,000. In August there was also an 11 percent jump in flight movements to over 3,400.

The passenger traffic increase was fuelled by the launch of new destinations and additional flights and also an increase in the number of local residents travelling outside of the territory, the Macau International Airport Company (CAM) wrote.

On June 23 mainland China carrier Juneyao Airlines launched a new route between Macau and Shanghai. On July 1 Air Macau resumed its regular service to Tokyo after a suspension as a result of the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on March 11.

Good prospects for local economic development, population employment stability and the overall increase in income were the main reason why more residents flew out of Macau during the summer, CAM wrote.

On the other hand more and more tourists are arriving in the MSAR by air, the company added, as the city becomes “a world tourism, leisure and gaming destination”.

However last month’s figures are still a far cry from the historic heights recorded in April 2007, the only month in which the airport reached 500,000 passengers.

In 2010 the terminal hosted less than 4.1 million passengers, the lowest number since 2004. And in the first eight months of this year the airport recorded just 2.3 million, down from 23.8 million in the same period of 2010.
Still the airport’s master plan disclosed last July includes an expansion project slated to accommodate a volume of 5.6 million passengers in 2015 and ultimately 15 million in 2039.

Airport extends positive trend
30/12/2011 10:43:00
Macau Daily Times

The number of people who used the Macau International Airport increased year-on-year in November, for the sixth consecutive month. After a dismal start in 2011 the local airport is recovering.

Last month the infrastructure handled 328,800 passengers, up by eight percent from the same period of 2010. However this is still a far cry from the best November ever, registered in 2007, when over 455,000 people went through the airport.

Even though the launch of direct flights between Taiwan and mainland China has heavily reduced the number of stopovers in Macau, the island is still the most important market for the local airport, accounting for 1.32 million passengers or 36 percent of the total.

Mainland China comes next with a 29 percent share, followed by Thailand with 11 percent of the total.

The Taipa terminal has been posting consecutive year-on-year growth since July. Despite this recovery the figures so far this year show a one percent decrease from 2010 to 3.69 million.

This positive six-month period has been unable to counter the passengers lost in the beginning of the year. From January to May 2011 the airport handled just 1.58 million passengers, down 10 percent from the same period last year.

But the biggest worry comes from airfreight, which plummeted in the first 11 months of 2011. The airport processed just 36,250 tonnes, down 25 percent year-on-year – a decrease that is worrying the members of the Logistics Development Committee.

“We think that this year air freight will reach just 40,000 tonnes. That’s far below the 200,000 tonnes we registered a couple of years ago,” the committee secretary-general Wong Wan said earlier this month.

Flying Hospitals to open local hub
12/01/2012 07:16:00
Macau Daily Times

Macau is set to become the Asian hub for charity Global Flying Hospitals (GFH), which wants to take high-tech medical cares to the developing countries in the region. The organisation signed a sponsorship agreement with a hotel chain but is also looking for partners to manufacture emergency shelters.

The US-based charity has been eyeing the MSAR for the last couple of years, founder and chairman Neill Newton said. “Macau is a far better place because it’s right in the geographical bull’s-eye, surrounded by developing countries,” he explained.

GFH is looking for funding of about USD 14 million (MOP 112 million) to turn two Boeing 747 into training hospitals and Newton believes it will be cheaper to do it in the territory. “We are close to Xiamen, where we can get refurbishing at a much lower price and the same for airplane servicing in Hong Kong,” he said.

The charity still needs to get the approval from local authorities to station its fleet in Macau. “We know it’s a small airport with limited parking space. But we are confident most of our fleet will be out on the field at any time,” the Australian national said.

The president of the Civil Aviation Authority (AACM), Simon Chan Weng Hong, confirmed to Macau Daily Times that so far he had not been contacted by GFH. “I’m not yet familiar with their operation model,” he said on the sidelines of the sponsorship signing ceremony.

Humanitarian studies

The charity is now sponsored by Sofitel hotel chain but it is also looking for partners to start manufacturing emergency shelters in the MSAR. “We were speaking to the Detroit airport authorities but it’s too expensive to do it there. Each shelter would cost from USD 6,000 to 7,000 [MOP 48,000 to 56,000],” Newton said.

The process would not only involve shelters big enough for 16 people but also sanitation, water purification and solar power generation, he explained. “There are no talks yet but we are open to discussions with anyone interested.”

The entrepreneur believes the territory can become a humanitarian hub. “Most people in Australia haven’t heard of Macau or if they did it was all about gaming,” he bemoaned. GFH and the manufacturing of shelters would bring “the focus of international media on Macau,” Newton promised.

He is also interested in talking to the University of Macau on the possible creation of a chair on Humanitarian Studies.

“There are thousands of volunteers and charities working worldwide but there is no place where you can learn how to carry out humanitarian work. A chair on Humanitarian Studies would draw people from all over the world,” the businessman stressed.

GFH has already worked with refugees from the 2010 Haiti earthquake and the 2011 Japan tsunami but is now keen on providing logistics to medical charities. “Can’t we send a high-tech hospital to people in need instead of sending volunteers to makeshift facilities?” Newton said.

Jetstar to end Singapore flights
30/01/2012 10:19:00
Macau Daily Times

Budget airlines Jetstar will stop flying between Macau and Singapore starting February 6 after the number of passengers dropped significantly last year, the local aviation regulator confirmed.

The Macau Civil Aviation Authority (AACM) told Portuguese-language newspaper Tribuna de Macau that Jetstar would drop the Singapore route “for commercial reasons”.

Last year the low-cost airline carried about 79,600 people in this route, 12,500 less than in 2010. This 13.8 percent drop took the passenger figures below the 82,100 registered by Jetstar in 2008, the first year it flew to Macau.

Despite the decision made by the subsidiary of Australian giant Qantas, there are two other airlines currently connecting the territory to Singapore: Tiger Airways and Air Macau.

On the other hand, there are two carriers eyeing the local airport, AACM added. One of them is low-cost Thai Smile, a subsidiary of Thai Airways that should begin operations in July, and the other is Taipei-based Mandarin Airline. But no formal request has been filed so far, the authority said.

Meanwhile almost 1.4 million people flew with flag carrier Air Macau last year, up by 19,480 from 2010, AACM revealed. However the airline is still far from the figures registered in 2009.

Unfortunately, the prospects for the airport are not good. Macau is a very small city to begin with and their aviation industry is heavily dependent on Taiwan-China connecting traffic and low-cost carriers. Now that there are direct flights between the two, a huge slice of traffic has gone away. Low-cost carriers haven't been that enthusiastic using Macau as a gateway to Hong Kong either, so passenger numbers have been declining since 2007 (pax -26% since 2007).

Thai Smile flies to Macau
07/02/2012 09:56:00

New low-cost airline Thai Smile has said it will operate flights from Bangkok to Macau twice a day from July 1.

Tickets will be available from April. The company, which is a subsidiary of Thai Airways, is expecting the passenger load to reach over 70 percent per flight.

Thai Smile plans to operate four aircraft this year for the main routes from the Thai capital to Chiang Mai, Phuket, Kolkata, Jakarta, and Phnom Penh.

According to Thai Airways president Piyasvasti Amranand, the new carrier is positioned to be a light-premium sub-brand of the airline, offering passengers another option for flight services.

However, last week the Macau aviation regulator said Thai Smile had not submitted a formal request to begin operations to the local airport.

New routes to Taichung, Chiang Mai in April

Two new routes could begin operating from the Macau International Airport in April, linking the city to Taichung, in Taiwan, and to Chiang Mai, in Thailand, the aviation regulator confirmed yesterday.

According to a Civil Aviation Authority of Macau (AACM) spokesperson, Kuala Lumpur-based budget carrier AirAsia has submitted an application to start flying once a day to Chiang Mai from April 9.

If the request is approved it would mark the end of a lengthy wait for flights to the northern Thailand city. AirAsia first said it was looking at the business potential for a route to Chiang Mai in March 2011.

The aviation authority is also assessing an application from Taipei-based Mandarin Airlines for a new route to Taichung, Taiwan’s third international airport. However the service set to start on April 21 would be charter, not a regulator route.

In addition low-cost Thai Smile, a subsidiary of Thai Airways, wants to fly twice a day between Bangkok and Macau starting July 1, and AACM said the approval process is underway.
