Air Asia will look to operate a twice-weekly Kuala Lumpur-Macau route starting from September 20, according to travel and aviation industry market intelligence website CAPA.

Current quarantine restrictions do not allow the entry in Macau of non-residents, with local residents returning from foreign countries, Taiwan, Hong Kong, or Nantang Town, Lufeng in Guangdong or Urumqi, Xinjiang required to carry out a 14-day quarantine.

Malaysian authorities meanwhile have announced that starting from August 31 ist borders will re-open for tourists

The budget carrier recently announced it resumed its Kuala Lumpur-Singapore flights on August 17 for essential business travellers under a scheme set between the two regions to allow short-term cross-border travel for essential business and official purposes for stays for up to a maximum of 14 days.

The airline will also operate several connections to the Malaysian capital, including flights to Manila twice a week.

This month CEO for Hong Kong and Macau, Celia Lao Sio Wun, also stated to TDM TV that AirAsia wants the SAR to negotiate a possible ‘travel bubble’ with Thailand.
