THE Macau Government Tourism Office in the Philippines has called on the airline industry and the government to pursue the proposed direct flight between Davao City and Macau.
Narzalina Z. Lim, general manager of the office, said that the route will not only boost the Macau market but will also allow Davao City to corner the influx of tourists from Macau that are coming to the Philippines.
“Macau tourists like to frolic in beaches and you have beautiful beaches here. Those in the (Island Garden City of) Samal and other areas of Davao Region are known for beautiful beaches,” said Lim.
She said her office and the other tourism industry stakeholders in the Davao Region will join hands in convincing the airline industry to service the Davao City-Macau route as she was informed that the”administration of President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III is pursuing the possibility of implementing an open skies policy, or the liberalization of the airline industry.”
During the promotional campaign of the Macau office in the city last week, Lim said she hopes the national government will implement the policy sooner so that negotiations for the implementation of the route will immediately take place.
