Macau Airport welcomed the arrival of a new carrier, Air Seoul, on 22 October. The low-cost subsidiary of Asiana Airlines began daily flights from Seoul Incheon competing with four other carriers.
- Air Seoul, which launched international services on 7 October, has added a further five destinations to its international network during the last week, starting on 18 October. Using a second A321 it has added three new routes to Japan, plus Kota Kinabalu (BKI) in Malaysia and Macau (MFM) all from its Seoul Incheon (ICN) base. None of the three Japanese routes, which are all under 700 kilometres in length, face any competition. However, three carriers already operate on the 3,658-kilometre route to Kota Kinabalu while four airlines already link Incheon with Macau.
