Sixty percent of the flights originally scheduled to be handled in August by Macau International Airport have already been cancelled, said the hub’s operator, in response to an enquiry by GGRAsia.
“As of August 9, approximately 2,000 flights were originally scheduled for this August and around 1,200 of them have been cancelled,” said Macau International Airport Co Ltd, an entity also known as CAM.
The airport operator added that the “majority of those were mainland China-Macau flights.” The email from CAM did not mention any reasons for the cancellations.
The reduction in flights coincides with an alert in Macau that began on August 3, when the city’s government announced that a local family of four had tested positive for the highly-infectious Delta variant of the Covid-19 virus.
