Long haul low cost from Asia

By Administrator |

Low-cost airline Viva Macau has announced plans to begin new services to both Hawaii and Russia in a move designed to differentiate its offer from that offered by other south-east Asian discount airlines.

The Macau, China-based carrier is also planning flights to Northeast Asia, including Japan and South Korea, as well as Australia, the Middle East, and Europe, according to Ceo Andrew Pyne. Speaking at the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA) low-cost airlines symposium in Singapore yesterday, Pyne said the carrier was ‘supremely bullish’ about Macau?s potential as a low-cost hub for south-east Asia.
He said the airline is also ‘focusing very seriously on Honolulu as a destination,’ since there are no direct flights to Hawaii from south-east China. Viva Macau begins flights within Asia in June.
