Macau International Airport is the only active airport in Macau, one of the two special administrative regions of the People’s Republic of China. Opened to commercial flights in 1995, Macau International Airport can handle six million passengers yearly and its runway can accommodate bigger aircrafts like the Boeing 747 despite its size. Built on a reclaimed land near Taipa Island, the airport serves as an important gateway to Zhuhai, one of mainland China’s manufacturing centers.
Similar to Hongkong International Airport, the Macau International Airport has its own immigration and customs policies that are separate from mainland China. All travellers, including those from the mainland, Hongkong and Taiwan, are required to go through immigration and inspection.
