Goss is that Macau has received three applications of interest to operate in Macau under Macau registration with Macau AOC. Leaked but no confirmed reports - Macau Jetstar? If true, would it be why AJ isnt interested in UO as he building a new nest?

Imagine if you could check in, in Hong Kong central ferry terminal, take your 1 hour ferry straight to airport and then board flight immediately. Thats a normal 2 hours waiting around at an airport for most people, so would be quite compelling if its low cost.

Depending where you want to go, the ferry might be a better option. From HKIA to Macau Airport taking the ferry will be the fastest option.

True that. But as a passenger you would be. They would need to increase the frequency tho. Not many ferrys doing that route.

To drive across the new white elephant, the vehicle needs three sets of registration papers, three sets of insurance and the driver needs three drivers licenses.

When I said drive I didn’t actually mean in your own car.......

A scheduled Bus would do the trick.....
