Fly From Macau to Subic With Royal Air
(Subic Bay, Philippines) – The Philippines is one of the most favorite countries to visit by a lot of foreigners. From the historical spots in Ilocos to the beautiful sceneries and beaches of Boracay and Puerto Princesa, the country has a lot to offer.
Another favorite place of foreigners is Subic. There are many things to see and experience in Subic: the delectable local food, the non-stop partying at Pier One, and the serenity of local beaches. However, one of the problems that many people are facing is the long hours of commuting to the place. If you are coming from Hong Kong or Macau, you need to fly from Metro Manila first and take a bus to Subic.
Fly From Macau to Subic
Now, the Department of Tourism, in partnership with Royal Air (official website), is making things better and easier for travelers. The Royal Air is going to mount chartered flights between the Subic Bay International Airport and Macau seven times a week.
DOT Undersecretary for Tourism Development and spokesperson Benito Bengzon Jr. said, “Royal Air is among our airline partners, which the DOT is working with to bring in tourists from China. Through our Route Development Team, we are providing marketing support to air carriers to increase tourist traffic to underutilized international gateways in the Philippines, such as the Subic Bay International Airport.”
The airline company is planning to introduce daily flights from Macau to Subic Bay in their 97-seater aircraft. This movement is expected to produce an additional 697 international seats or 35,308 seats annually, just from China.
“Subic Bay is a special economic zone in the Philippines, which by law allows the entry of foreign nationals without the required visa for a maximum of 14 days. This is a good opportunity for Philippine tourism as Chinese nationals do not need to queue in our consular offices in China to secure the entry visa to the Philippines,” Bengzon added.
“Subic Bay has a lot to offer to leisure and business travelers with its natural, cultural, and adventure attractions coupled with world-class accommodations and other tourist facilities.”

Just last June 21, Royal Air inaugurated its new flights from Macau to the Mactan Cebu International Airport. This new route is using the same 97-seater aircraft, producing at least 35,308 additional international air seats from China every year.
The airline also flies from Macau to the Lallo International Airport in Cagayan using their BAE RJ-100 aircraft with a capacity of 97 mono-class seats. It services passengers four times a week.
