Low-cost carrier AirAsia will be launching three to four new routes for Macau this year, the airline’s CEO for Hong Kong and Macau Celia Lao Sio Wun told reporters yesterday.

Lao made the comments before officiating over the launch ceremony of the airline’s Macau-Phuket daily flight at the local airport. The route’s first flight arrived from Phuket in the morning and returned shortly after.

Lao said that AirAsia had received many requests for the Macau-Phuket route and when it managed to get a slot at the busy Phuket airport last year after many years of trying, it decided to have the route flying directly once a day between the resort island and Macau.
