Korean Air is set to launch a new flight on 11 September, which will allow passengers to fly from Macao to Lisbon via Seoul Incheon, according to the Macau International Airport Company (also known by its Portuguese initials CAM).

The Korean carrier intends to offer the service three times a week on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, with the layover in Seoul estimated to be around 6 hours. Passengers will have their checked-in luggage automatically transferred to Lisbon. 

In an earlier statement, Korean Air said that the flights from Seoul Incheon to Lisbon will be carried out using Boeing 787-9 aircraft.

It added that the Seoul-Lisbon flights “are the only nonstop flights between Northeast Asia and Lisbon.” 

Currently, Macau International Airport offers 14 indirect flights with transits of around 4 to 6 hours. They include flights to Canada, USA, Germany, Australia, India and Sri Lanka via carriers such as Air China, Eva Air, Scoot and AirAsia. 

As part of its effort to boost its international tourism markets, the SAR has been working to expand its range of flight offerings since the ending of pandemic travel restrictions in early 2023. For instance, Air Macau introduced the city’s first service to Jakarta last November, and its inaugural flight to Kuala Lumpur in January of this year.
