Seamless sea-to-air connection for Macao travellers to Asia, New Zealand and Canada.

Hong Kong - Travellers from the entertainment centre of Macao can now enjoy increased travel convenience when connecting from sea to air, thanks to the new Macao Leisure Pass launched by Hong Kong Airlines and Pearl River Delta’s leading ferry services company, Turbojet.

Customers travelling from Macao to Hong Kong will enjoy a one-stop convenience when booking their ferry and flight tickets at the same time. Both ferry and flight sectors will be issued on the same travel itinerary, offering ease of mind to travellers using inter-modal transportation for leisure or business travel.

During the initial launch stage, the Macao Leisure Pass is available for travel on Hong Kong Airlines’ flights from Hong Kong to Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo, Bangkok, Bali, Auckland and Vancouver. The airline plans to extend the coverage to include more destinations from its international network in the future.

As an added benefit, the baggage allowance for both ferry and flight segments will be identical, offering Hong Kong Airlines Business Class and Economy Class passengers 30kg and 20kg of checked baggage respectively, when checking in at the Macao Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal. All baggage will also be checked through to the final destination, further enhancing the customer travel experience along the way.

TurboJet currently operates multiple daily ferry services from the Macao Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal to SkyPier at Hong Kong International Airport. Macao Leisure Pass holders are free to travel on any of these ferry services offered by TurboJet.

The Macao Leisure Pass is now available for sale from designated travel agents including China Travel Service (HK) Ltd, Hong Thai Travel Services (Macao) and HKA Holidays Limited. Customers can book up to six months ahead of their planned travel date and change their itinerary by simply contacting their travel agent.

Hong Kong Airlines Commercial Director Mr Michael Ma said: “We are delighted to be the first airline to partner with TurboJet to offer a seamless travel experience to our customers. The Macao Leisure Pass is a true time saver and will ensure that our customers benefit from a hassle-free connection experience in Hong Kong.”
