MACAU and China have signed a memorandum of understanding on air services, the Portuguese new agency Lusa reported yesterday. Quoting a spokesman with the Civil Aviation Authority of Macau (AACM), it said the memorandum was signed on Thursday by AACM chairman Jose Queiroz and deputy director of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC)'s International Co-operation affairs Department, Wang Ronghua. Lusa said the agreement allowed start-up carrier Air Macau to fly to Beijing, Shanghai, Xiamen, Qingdao and possibly Wuhan. The Chinese airlines designated by CAAC will be allowed to operate from Beijing, Shanghai and other mainland airports 'to be selected by the CAAC'. Air Macau is due to launch flights to China when the enclave's airport opens on November 9.
