MGTO to cooperate with AirAsia and Jin Air to attract overseas tourists

The number of tourists visiting Macau has reached 60% of pre-pandemic levels, with a stable majority of tourists coming from the mainland and Hong Kong and a number of overseas and Taiwan tourists which is still small, the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) director Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes said.

“Considering that the routes between Japan, South Korea and Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand are recovering quickly, we are currently focusing on these markets for publicity,” the official explained, saying that the current average daily number of overseas and Taiwan tourists was about 2,600 to 2,900.

“While Macao Week is planned to be held in the cities of Qingdao, Tianjin and Xiamen this year, we will also hold overseas roadshows and promotions in the second half of the year,” the MGTO director added, as cited in a TDM report.

In addition, MGTO will cooperate with Malaysian low-cost carrier AirAsia and South-Korean low-cost carrier Jin Air, which recently announced it will resume flights to Macau by next July, to launch thousands of tickets discounts during May and June with the aim of attracting more foreign tourists.

Fernandes also said that MGTO will cooperate with every other airline intending to resume flights to and from Macau. Staff Reporter
