Commercial helicopter flights between Macao, Hong Kong and Shenzhen are scheduled to start up again on Friday, TDM reports. Tickets are available via TurboJET and Sky Shuttle sales outlets.

The flights will be operated by East Asia Airlines’ Sky Shuttle service, which suspended operations in February 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The company also said it aimed to expand its network to cover Guangdong province and boost its share of “the high-end transportation sector of the Greater Bay Area market.”

Round-trip Sky Shuttle flights are initially set to operate between Macao and Hong Kong twice a week, according to TDM. There will be one round-trip offered between Macao and Shenzhen each week.

Sky Shuttle’s website is currently “under amendment,” but advertises 15-minute flights between Macao and the two neighbouring cities.

The fare for a one-way chopper flight between the SARs was 4,450 patacas pre-covid. It was 6,080 patacas between Macao and Shenzhen.
