Low Cloud And Fog Shuts Macau Intl... Again!

Fri Mar 11, 2005 6:37 pm

I would think its about time that Macau gets a better ILS... today there have been almost NO arrivals whis is rather silly. Even in a Typhoon some flights operate to Hong Kong... now some low clouds close Macau!!

When they get airlines like Air Asia and soon the new Virgin Blue I think they should tell them this happens on more than a few days of the year!!... It pays to use CLK!!  Smile

Go to http://www.ada.com.mo/ and see the arr / dep page (click the timetable at the top and then the live arr / dep)....  wideeyed

You doing any spotting in Hong Kong... there will be a few of us out there tomorrow (SAT) Afternoon. I would assume at HAECO.. S52 bus from Tung Chung (BUS TO HEACO).

What level is Macau's ILS? Cat II? Any news regarding the new carriers from both HKG and Macau?

While in HK this passed January. I was told by a local, fog is typical this time of year . Then Typhoon season would follow . So , going to HK this time of year was not a good idea .

Is that true ?

Thanks

Hi,

The only thing that shuts HKIA is a Typhoon... and that does not happen much!.
