AirAsia's Macao-Phuket flight was inaugurated today, on 8 January 2018. With the support of Macao International Airport, a grand welcoming event was organized to mark the occasion. The arrival of the inaugural flight was followed by a press conference in Macao airport that was attended by esteemed guests including Mr. Asi Mamanee, Consul-General of the Kingdom of Thailand in Hong Kong and Macao; Ms Sirima Chindamat, Director of Tourism Authority of Thailand, Hong Kong Office; Mr. Simon Chan, President of Civil Aviation Authority of Macao, Ms. Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes, Director of Macao Government Tourist Office; Ms. Grace Cheang, Director of Finance and Administration of Macao International Airport Co. Ltd.; Mr. Lino Ho, General Assembly President of Macao Thailand Chamber of Commerce; Mr. Patrick Ong, Chief Executive Officer of the Administration of Airports Ltd.; Mr. Raymond Lo, Managing Director of Menzies Macao Airport Services; Mr. Lao Kin Sang, Deputy General Manager of Nam Kwong Petroleum & Chemicals Co., Ltd.; Ms. Gigi Wong, Deputy General Manager of SEMAC Security Company and Ms. Celia Lao - CEO of AirAsia Hong Kong and Macao.

Ms. Celia Lao, CEO of AirAsia Hong Kong and Macao, is happy to share that the Macao-Phuket route has been receiving strong response from both sides during the opening sales period since October 2017. The keen interest has been attributed to Macao being a popular destination for Thai tourists and Phuket being a well-known island paradise for Chinese and international travelers. This direct connection will create immense convenience for travelers from both ends.

"Macao locals, Mainland Chinese or expatriates, etc. I invite all of you to visit Phuket, the beautiful island of paradise in Thailand, to experience the city known as the Pearl of the Andaman as well as to savor its delicious cuisine. You can now fly directly from Macao to this wonderful island at an amazing price." Ms. Lao said.

Mr. Santisuk Klongchaiya, Director of Commercial for Thai AirAsia, said, "I am ecstatic that AirAsia has begun flying directly from Phuket to Macao. I believe this will be another popular route as it bridges the two popular tourist destinations directly together. Tourists can now visit Macao and Phuket without hassle."

Apart from Phuket-Macao, Thai AirAsia offers a variety of direct flights to Macao from Thailand, including Don Mueang-Macao (4 flights a day), Chiang Mai-Macao (1 flight per day) and Pattaya (U-Tapao)-Macao (4 flights per week).

With this newly added service, AirAsia group operates a total of 72 weekly flights connecting Macao to Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya (U-Tapao), Kuala Lumpur, Manila and most recently launched Johor Bahru in Malaysia, which began service on 28 November 2017.
