Macao-Tuen Mun ferry route closes
Operator TurboJet has faced difficulties for several years with the opening of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge and unrest in Hong Kong.
TurboJet’s ferry service between Macao and Tuen Mun in Hong Kong will cease for good from next Tuesday.
All TurboJet Hong Kong routes were suspended due to Covid-19 in January 2020, and the company’s lease for the ferry terminal in Tuen Mun runs out on 8 June.
Passengers holding valid tickets for the route can claim a refund from TurboJet ticketing offices.
Shun Tak Group, which owns TurboJet, has previously indicated that its transportation division has been challenged by many factors for a long time, including a shift in travel patterns with the opening of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge in 2018 and unrest in Hong Kong.
Ferry operators are believed to have dismissed at least half of their staff due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
