V Air to suspend flights on its Taipei-Macau route from July
V Air, a low-cost subsidiary of Taiwan’s TransAsia Airways, announced it will suspend air service between Taipei and Macau from July 10, three months after it commenced operations on the route on April 10.
The airline said that air tickets for flights on the route will be available until July 10.
With a low passenger loading rate of only 40 percent since the new air service was launched, the airline decided to suspend the service, according to V Air.
The choice of V Air’s flight schedules is not ideal, making the company less competitive in the market.
However, the Taoyuan- Bangkok route the airline operates has been popular since it was launched last December and now enjoys an average ridership of 80 percent, which is expected to continue to grow, the airline said.
It plans to increase service schedules to Bangkok from the current one flight per day to 10 flights per week, starting on July 2.
