How does the transit between Macau and Hong Kong work? Is there any necessity for visas, or can citizens from both jurisdictions use, for instance, the Macau airport and a ferry to Hong Kong or vice-versa to travel elsewhere?

Macau Airport Operating Just 11 Routes After Airlines Axe Flights
Macau Daily Times Excerpt
Mar 3, 2020

The outbreak of the Covid-19 coronavirus and the consequent restrictions imposed by many countries and regions in regard to border crossings have led to the suspension of the majority of flights in and out of Macau.

As of yesterday, the Macau International Airport (MIA) had only 11 routes in operation, with most of the flights operated by home carrier, Air Macau.

The Air Macau flights to Shanghai, Beijing, Bangkok, Hanoi, Nanning, and Taipei were part of a long list of routes operated by the carrier that have been temporarily suspended. Others, however, remain open.

The major routes still serving travelers are those that connect to Bangkok in Thailand, and Taipei in Taiwan. Two airlines operate routes to these cities: Bangkok routes are being operated by Air Macau and Air Asia, while Air Macau and Eva Airways service the Taipei route.

The remaining flight routes in operation are all for Southeast Asian countries with Air Asia flying to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Lanmei Airlines to Cambodia’s Sihanoukville and JC Cambodia International to the capital city, Phnom Penh.

Government Extends Air Macau's Concession Agreement for 3 More Years
Macau Daily Times Excerpt
May 11, 2020

Air Macau’s 25-year concession agreement, which was set to expire this November, has been extended for three years, the Civil Aviation Authority of Macau (AACM) announced in a statement.

The announcement contradicted an earlier statement from January 2019 when it said that the concession agreement will not be renewed as the government is aiming to liberalize the market.

In 2008, the SAR government decided not to extend the exclusive rights in the contracts upon their expiry. Air Macau holds an exclusive concession that permits it to operate certain routes without competition.

“To cope with the amendment of the relevant legislation for the liberalization of Macau’s air transport market, as well as to maintain the stability of the industry operations currently affected by the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia, the SAR government will extend the concession contract of Air Macau for three years,” the AACM announced in a statement.

Currently, the government is working on the administrative procedures for the extension of the contract. More details will be published after the signing is concluded.

Macau Airport Renews Environmental Accreditation
Macau Daily Times Excerpt
May 22, 2020

The Macau International Airport (MIA) has recently had its annual Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) renewed for one year.

A statement issued by the Macau Airport Company noted that the airport had been working to reduce its carbon emissions for many years. Its efforts have been recognized by the ACA Program.

The MIA Carbon Management Plan was revised in 2019. A target was set to reduce carbon emissions per movement by 30% from the levels in 2018. The airport had managed to reduce its emissions by 14% from its levels in 2018, 16% less than their goal. The airport did not offer an explanation for why the goal was unmet.

However, the airport pointed out that it would be more difficult to achieve more significant reductions in carbon emissions per movement “due to the significant decrease in the number of movements caused by the outbreak of Covid-19,” the airport wrote in the statement.

Launched by Airports Council International (ACI), the aim of the ACA program is to encourage and enable airports to implement best practices in carbon reduction, with the ultimate objective of becoming carbon neutral.
