I don't think CX have the traffic right between India / Singapore to Macau, so it should be a one-off private charter, especially consider the short period of time between departure and only one-way has been loaded. They probably ferry a flight to do it as well.

My wild guess is that some Finance or IT company (reading from India / Singapore and on the exact same day) decide to move some internal event from HK to MFM due to recent unrest, which would have spread across the normal schedule if it is in HK, then change to MFM to run the event so CX offer to run a charter for them instead.
