The Shun Tak Heliport

Constructed at a height of 107 feet above the sea level, the Shun Tak Heliport sits above the inner pier of the Macau Ferry Terminal providing helicopter landing and take off services to privately owned, as well as government helicopters. However, this heliport can be used only by the multi engined helicopters there are no refuelling facilities located around the Shun Tak heliport. 

The original heliport built in the late 20th century didn’t have quite as many facilities as the new one and had only one helicopter landing pad. This heliport was rebuilt about a decade ago in 2008 and a new landing pad was linked to the previously existing one. Now the Shun Tak Heliport caters to the various helicopter service companies quite efficiently and provides them with world class facilities too.
