Macau International Airport (traditional Chinese: 澳門國際機場; Jyutping: oumun gwokzai geicoeng; Portuguese: Aeroporto Internacional de Macau) (IATA: MFM, ICAO: VMMC) situated at the eastern end of Taipa island and neighbouring waters, is the only airport in Macau, which opened for commercial operations in November 1995. Since then the airport has been a common transfer point for people traveling between mainland China and Taiwan, as well as a passenger hub for destinations in mainland China and Southeast Asia. During 2006, the airport handled 5 million passengers and 220,000 tonnes of cargo.

As in Hong Kong, Macau has its own immigration policies and is a separate customs territory from mainland China. All travellers, including those to mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan need to go through the immigration and customs inspections of international flights.

The airport was opened in November 1995, during Portuguese rule. Before then the territory only had 2 temporary airports for small aeroplanes, in addition to several permanent heliports. Cathay Pacific operated seaplane service between Hong Kong and Macau in the late 1940s. The only air services Macau had in the 1990s were helicopter services operated by East Asia Airlines to Hong Kong.

Former air facilities in Macau:

  • Portuguese Naval Aviation seaplane base on Taipa Island
  • Portuguese Naval Aviation seaplane base in the Outer Harbour - southeast side of the mainland
  • Temporary airstrip on Coloane
  • Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Pier, Macau heliport


Facilities

The airport's runway was built on a strip of reclaimed land in the sea, adjacent to Taipa Island, where the main terminal and air traffic control facilities are located. The runway is connected to the apron by two causeways. Runway 34 is ILS CAT II equipped.

The airport's designed capacity is 6,000,000 passengers per year, with processing capacity of up to 2,000 passengers per hour. The airport does not have a night curfew. There are 24 parking spaces for aircraft in the apron, with 4 jetways.

Despite its small physical size, the airport is capable of handling Boeing 747s, which forms a vital freight link between local manufacturers and overseas markets. Its catering facility can produce up to 10,000 meals per day.
