This though... Since when KCH serves the countries in bold (apart from occasional charters)?
I only know MASKargo serves Manila directly. KUL-KCH-MNL. China and Taiwan were only charters.

It can't be helped when BKI is the second largest airport in Malaysia. For a company, after your flagship product, you will focus your attention at the second best product, and I think that's what most airlines are doing

AirAsia keen on Sarawak's own low-cost carrier terminal
By ADIB POVERA - June 5, 2017 @ 6:08pm

KUCHING: Top budget air carrier, AirAsia Bhd, is still keen on having a dedicated low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) here to expand connectivity between Sarawak and other domestic and international destinations.

Its chief executive officer, Aireen Omar, said the present Kuching International Airport (KIA) here has almost reached its full capacity in terms of guest arrivals last year.

“The capacity at KIA is five million passengers per annum. However, the airport has almost reached its capacity last year.

“I believed that is time to start looking for ways to expand the operation of the current airport, which will allow AirAsia to connect Sarawak with more international destinations.

“Increasing the number of international destinations to Kuching will also help the state government to achieve its goal in boosting tourist arrivals into Sarawak,” she told reporters at the welcoming of AirAsia’s inaugural flight from Pontianak to Kuching at KIA here today.


Present were State Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports Minister, Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah; his assistant minister Datuk Lee Kim Shin; and Indonesian Consul-General in Kuching, Muhammad Abdullah.

Abdul Karim concurred, stating that connectivity is the prime concern among industry players for the tourism sector in the state to grow.

He added that tourism can flourish should there be more air connectivity from the state to other destinations.

He said this was one of the feedbacks he has received from industry players during his recent trip to Guangzhou, China.

“Direct air connectivity into Sarawak is the major critical success factor if we want tourism to become the main contributor towards the state’s economic growth,” he said.

The commencement of AirAsia’s second international destinations via the Kuching International Airport, said Karim, has allayed fears on the future of the tourism sector in the state after MASwings pulled out its Kuching-Pontianak route in Feb last year.

“AirAsia reinstatement is a breather to us as we have been looking forward to more serviced routes between Kuching and Pontianak in our bid to boost Sarawak’s medical tourism sector.

“There are many people from Pontianak and even Jakarta who frequents the specialist centres here,” he said.

Aireen added that AirAsia’s new Kuching-Pontianak route is part of the carrier’s initial expansion plan to turn Sarawak into its regional hub in Borneo.

“AirAsia feels that Kuching, which has a lot of potential in the tourism sector, can be the gateway to Borneo.

“We are also looking into establish direct flight to Kuching from other countries in the Asean region as well as China and Australia since there are good traffic demands for AirAsia.

“Hopefully, by end of the year, we can introduce another international destination flying directly from Kuching,” she said.


To this, Karim said the state government will look into ways to ensure that there are sufficient facilities to meet demands from tourists.

AirAsia eyes local, international expansion
http://www.theborneopost.com/2017/06...nal-expansion/
June 6, 2017, Tuesday Rachel Lau, [email protected]

KUCHING: AirAsia Bhd (AirAsia), who has been gunning for aggressive regional expansion with the signing of two separate joint-ventures in Vietnam and China in the first half of 2017 (1H17), will continue to emphasise on both local and international expansion.

According to head of commercial Spencer Lee, AirAsia will continue to focus on expanding local connectivity and frequency amidst regional expansion in order to stimulate and maintain local market demand.

“For us it is always about expansion and locally, we are aiming to close the gap on local connectivity with flights to unique destinations that people might not even expect.

“For example for our current network in Sarawak, we have started Kuching Pontianak and Kuching Langkawi routes and are set to reveal another additional two new destinations from Kuching at the end of the year,” Lee revealed to The Borneo Post yesterday.

This was during the inaugural AK1029 flight ceremony from Pontianak to Kuching held at Kuching International Airport yesterday.

The Kuching-Pontianak route is the latest AirAsia route from Kuching and has begun its operations with daily flights between the two destinations. Its addition brings total AirAsia destinations from Kuching to ten and total weekly flights both ways to 468.

The Kuching-Langkawi route on the other hand, is slated to begin operation sometime in August.

------

Looking forward, Lee anticipates for the group to see another great year like they had in 2016, especially for Sarawakian operations due to increased partnerships with the local authorities, travel industry and state government with their expansion plans.

“I hope that personally for Kuching, we will continue seeing a growth like the four per cent year over year (y-o-y) passenger number growth we saw last year and while we don’t have an estimate right now, you can rest assure that we will be aiming to beat last year’s figure.”

Abg Johari: State in negotiations with AirAsia on proposed LCCT
June 19, 2017, Monday

Quote:
KUCHING: The state government is in negotiations with AirAsia Berhad to pave way for the construction of a Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) in the city.

Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg said the negotiations “are now in the process” but he cannot disclose any information yet.

“We are now in the process of negotiations with AirAsia,” he said when asked if there was a plan to build an LCCT here when met by reporters after attending a function at SK Rakyat in Satok yesterday.

Abang Johari said the site for the proposed LCCT had “more or less” been identified but it was “not confirmed yet”.

Asked whether he could disclose the proposed site, he replied: “Near the airport (Kuching International Airport – KIA) lah.”

On June 8, Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said he was in favour of having an LCCT if the proposed facility could facilitate the growth of tourism industry in the state.

“If a separate LCCT building could expedite and facilitate the growth of tourism industry in Sarawak, of course it would be good to have it,” he said.

At the time of the interview, Abdul Karim said he did not have any detail on the proposed plan.

He added that the proposed project should come under the purview of the federal government unless the state government decided to be involved.

On June 5, AirAsia Berhad chief executive officer Aireen Omar, said the KIA had reached almost five million passengers, which is its capacity.

“So I think we need to start looking at how we need to expand the airport now in order for us to realise our plans in bringing more connectivity so that the state government can see their targets being achieved very soon,” she told a press conference.
