Macau-Lisbon Flights Made Easier With Launch of Korean Air’s Direct Flights

South Korean flag carrier, Korean Air, has announced the launch of direct charter flights between South Korea’s capital, Seoul, and Lisbon from September 11, making it easier for passengers to fly between Macau and Lisbon.

Korean Air emphasized that the new connection from Seoul´s Incheon airport (pictured above) will also offer the only direct flights between Lisbon and Northeast Asia, a region that includes Japan, Mongolia and the far east of Russia.

The latest estimate given by the Consulate General of Portugal in Macau pointed to more than 100.000 Portuguese passport holders living in the two Chinese special administrative regions of Macau and Hong Kong.

According to official data from Macau’s Statistics and Census Bureau, the city received 6.013 tourists from Portugal in 2023, the year it lifted all entry restrictions imposed due to the pandemic.

The  three flights a week between the Seoul Incheon airport and Lisbon, on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, will be made by the Boeing 787-9 aircraft, with capacity for 290 passengers.

The flights will run for almost two months, at least until October 25, but there’s also plans to extend the operation of this route during the winter season, from October 27 until March 30, 2025.
