Macau International Airport has always been committing to optimizing passenger service measures and ensuring safety and smooth operations. An airport safety and operation coordination meeting was held by Airport Operations Department (AOD) on 20th March 2023, in which it mentioned that AOD will make appropriate arrangements on boarding gates in South Extension of the Passenger Terminal Building (PTB) and manpower based on the updated daily forecast flight numbers and passenger data provided by airlines, while all relevant operation units of MIA have to pay attention to the queuing situation in the terminal building and increase manpower to guide and assist with the passengers in a timely manner. With the successive upgrades of the Baggage Handling System (BHS), Hold Baggage Screen (HBS) process while adopting the RFID function for tracking the checked baggage, so as to meet the needs of passengers and provide a better travel convenience experience. After the completion of the reconstruction project of the oversized baggage handling area on south side of PTB, total two oversized baggage handling areas are located at both sides of the PTB will effectively divert passengers in need of the service and reduce the check-in time.  At the same time, the additional maintenance check of the airport facility system will be strengthened to enhance operational capability.
