Low-cost Viva Macau selects jets

Following completion of a licensing deal with Air Macau, Viva Macau is in the final stages of evaluating the type of aircraft it use when it takes off in June.The airline startup is looking to lease two or three planes, either Airbus A310s or Boeing 767s, depending on their price and availability.

The budget airline, which plans to grow to 12-15 aircraft, intends to serve medium- to long-haul destinations in Asia, the Middle East and Europe, but it will avoid competing with Air Macau on China and Taiwan routes.
