In the three years since the introduction of low-cost aviation business at the Macau International Airport, the proportion of passengers taking over airports has been increasing. Some scholars believe that the scale and operational efficiency of the Macau International Airport is very suitable for the development of low-cost aviation, as long as the policy of the Macao SAR government is supported. In cooperation with the airport, low-cost airlines will help positioning Macau's tourist cities and attract more tourists to Australia.
Lei Wei, a senior lecturer at the Anglia Ruskin University in the UK, specializing in aviation and tourism strategy, believes that Macao has been developing economically in recent years, driven by the tourism gaming industry, and few places in the world can focus on tourism development like Macau. And achieved good results. Lei Wei pointed out that in order to further expand the source of tourists, it needs to be driven by the air transport industry. According to the development history of low-cost aviation and the operating experience in Macao, low-cost airlines can bring more tourists to Macau. As long as the government makes proper guidance on the policy, the cooperation with the airport will definitely promote the tourism industry in Macau. development of.
Need to resolve airspace limitations
As for the size of the Macau International Airport, is it suitable to expand more low-cost aviation business? The Thunder believes that the Macao International Airport is moderately sized and has high operational efficiency, which is very suitable for the development of low-cost aviation business. However, because low-cost airlines pay great attention to the on-time departure of flights and the importance of airport charges, airlines need to have at least 45 minutes of turnaround time at the airport, and low-cost airlines need only 25 minutes to turn around, so there is an urgent need for efficient operation. The airport will provide services.
The Macau International Airport is subject to small airspace restrictions. The take-off and landing of flights in some time is constrained. Therefore, Macao needs to coordinate with relevant departments in the neighboring areas to solve the problem of airspace limitations.
Advantages in the vicinity
In addition, from the growth rate of low-cost airlines and passenger aircraft orders, the low-cost aviation market share may reach 20% by 2010, and the penetration rate in low-cost aviation markets in India, Thailand, Australia, Malaysia and Indonesia will be even higher. high.
In the Pearl River Delta region, the first international airport to introduce low-cost air services, in addition to Asian Airways and Tiger Airways, two low-cost airlines to provide services, Macao's local extraordinary airlines and the upcoming Yuya Airlines will also provide more low-cost destinations in the region and in the Mainland. Since the neighboring major airports rarely develop low-cost air services, especially regional low-cost routes, it is expected that the future low-cost aviation market will occupy more than 20% at the Macau International Airport.
