Home  World Africa Americas Europe Rest of World Tickets History

Colonized by the Portuguese in the 16th century, Macau was the first European settlement in the Far East. Pursuant to an agreement signed by China and Portugal on 13 April 1987, Macau became the Macau Special Administrative Region (SAR) of China on 20 December 1999. China has promised that, under its "one country, two systems" formula, China's socialist economic system will not be practiced in Macau, and that Macau will enjoy a high degree of autonomy in all matters except foreign and defence affairs for the next 50 years. It is located in eastern Asia, bordering the South China Sea and China

Comments : Metis TransPacific Charter Airlines was a supposed airline service based in Macau. It was to provide commercial air service between Macau and Vancouver BC, Canada. The air service never did launch, claiming lack of available aircraft with the ability to fulfill the transpacific flights on a non-stop flight path, in the market at startup (2006/2007). Metis TransPacific Charter Airlines, without success, did attempt three separate launch dates between Jun2006 and Dec 2007. Metis TransPacific Charter Airlines was given approvals from both Macau SAR, China civil aviation and Canadian civil aviation authorities
