AirAsia Targets 2 Mln Passengers To Sabah This Year
November 01, 2008 20:56 PM

KOTA KINABALU, Nov 1 (Bernama) -- Low-cost airline AirAsia Bhd expects the number of passengers on its flights to Sabah to surpass its previous record of 1.8 million last year to over 2 million this year.

Its chairman Datuk Aziz Bakar said with 90 per cent of transportation to Sabah via air, it was a crucial destination for AirAsia, with Sabah viewed as a gateway for trade, investment and tourism.

"AirAsia has also assisted in generating various economic opportunities here since its service was launched in Sabah six years ago," he said at the launching of the inaugural AirAsia Kota Kinabalu-Singapore route at Terminal 2 of the Kota Kinabalu International Airport, here.

Today also saw the maiden flight for the new route, one of the two new flights from East Malaysia to Singapore launched by AirAsia. The Kuching-Singapore route also commenced today.

The new service, which is expected to address the high demand for air travel between Singapore and East Malaysia, is already proving to be popular with over 10,000 seats quickly sold out since it opened for sale on Oct 21, according to Aziz.

AirAsia will have daily flights for this route with the flight departing from Kota Kinabalu at 6.40pm while the flight from Singapore departs at 9.35pm.

Asked whether AirAsia would consider adding more flights for the Kota Kinabalu-Singapore route, Aziz said this would be considered when there was a demand.

"The route is also expected to bring in more international tourists through Singapore," he added.

Meanwhile, the number of Singaporeans visiting Sabah is expected to increase to 22,000 from 18,000 last year, especially after the launching of the new route and with Jetstar Singapore expected to launch its flight to Kota Kinabalu this month.

Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun, in a speech text read by the Assistant Minister Bolkiah Ismail, highlighted that from January to August this year, Sabah had received 10,624 tourists from Singapore, a slight decrease from 11,659 arrivals in the same period last year.

"The slight decrease may be due to the current economic crisis and rising cost of travelling, but we are optimistic of drawing 22,000 Singaporean tourists to Sabah by the year end," said Masidi.

Transfer Of Airasia Operations From Main Terminal Of KKIA To Terminal 2 Is Temporary
November 05, 2008 17:30 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 5 (Bernama) -- The Transport Ministry's decision that AirAsia Bhd transfer its operations from the Main Terminal of the Kota Kinabalu International Airport(KKIA), to the Terminal 2, is a temporary measure.

The Deputy Minister of Transport Datuk Seri Panglima Lajim Ukin said the move was until upgrading works to the KKIA's Main Terminal is completed.

"The move is intended to avoid any disruption to flight operations and work at the site where the upgrading to the Main Terminal is being undertaken," he said.

AirAsia had been informed of the matter and was ready to transfer operations back to the Main Terminal once the project was completed, he told the Dewan Rakyat today.

Lajim was responding to a question from Dr Hiew King Cheu (DAP-Kota Kinabalu) on the reason for AirAsia to transfer operations from Terminal 2, which had cost millions of ringgit to build, back to the Main Terminal after the upgrading works.

He said that the original objective of upgrading the Main Terminal would not be realised if the terminal building and parking apron was not fully utilised.

"The issue of passenger traffic still arises, especially for those from and to selected airports, planning to use AirAsia or MASWings," said Lajim.

At the same time, he said the facilities for aircraft operations on the parking apron of Terminal 2 was very limited.

"As such, the transfer is to support the need of additional aircrafts or that of aircrafts bigger than the Boeing 737 or the Airbus A320 as well as operational service requirements," he added.

He said that if AirAsia continued with its operations at the Terminal 2, it would impact on the efficiency of air traffic control with problems related to runway crossings, continuing to exist for the airlines' aircraft taking off from runway 02 and landing on runway 20.

With the completion of upgrading works to the Main Terminal, he said that there would be greater efficiency and comfort with regards to the transfer of passengers and flight connections.

The KKIA masterplan will focus on infrastructure expansion in the vicinity of the Main Terminal as there was vacant land available for development.

The Terminal 2 vacated by AirAsia, will not be left idle.It will be used by agencies such as the Royal Malaysian Air Force, the Police and others as Transmile, flying clubs, private aircraft and serve as a cargo handling centre.

Palawan-KK flight connection from Nov 28
Thursday, 20 November, 2008 Copyright © Daily Express, Sabah, Malaysia

MANILA: Southeast Asian Airlines (SEAIR) will be mounting flights this month from Puerto Princesa City in Palawan, the Philippines, to Kota Kinabalu, marking the carrier's entry into the Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines-East Asia Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA) market.

Scheduled on Nov. 28, 2008, the inaugural flight will allow passengers to visit world-renowned destinations in a circuitous route without backtracking. It also opens up direct flights from Kota Kinabalu to Puerto Princesa and Boracay in Aklan, Philippines news agency quoted the carrier as saying in a statement.

"SEAIR made 3,511 flights to and from Caticlan. This translates to 635 flights more than our nearest competitor. This (new) service will add further to the connectivity to Boracay with twice a week flights direct from Caticlan to Puerto Princesa," said Patrick Tan, SEAIRs vice president for commercial affairs.

To further boost passenger traffic, SEAIR recently introduced a state-of-the-art reservation system where passengers may avail themselves of the best online deals such as inexpensive fares for definite travel dates (FlySaver) and VIP tickets for those who require a good deal of flexibility on their itinerary (FlyFlex).

Just last month, SEAIR posted record sales for 2008 with 20 percent of the tickets sold online. Online bookings are expected to increase by 250 percent as peak season nears.

Two new airbuses are scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2009.

With the recent signing of the Asean Open Sky Agreement, it is full speed ahead for SEAIR as it bared plans to operate flights to Singapore, Macau, Incheon, Bangkok, and Kaoshiung.

KK-Singapore Flights Set To Boost Sabah MICE Sector
December 02, 2008 21:45 PM

KOTA KINABALU, Dec 2 (Bernama) -- Direct Sabah-Singapore flights, besides boosting tourism, would also give the state an opportunity to promote its MICE (meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions) facilities.

Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister, Datuk Masidi Manjun, said Singapore was well-known as a premier hub in the Asian region that acted as a gateway to other international cities around the world.

"I trust the flights will attract more inbound international tourists and professionals and we see this as a partnership to enhance business," he said after welcoming 161 passengers of the Jetstar Asia's inaugural flight from Singapore here Tuesday.

He said Jetstar Asia, a subsidiary of Australia's Qantas Airways based in Singapore, could open more doors for other international airlines to operate flights to Kota Kinabalu.

Jetstar Asia's chief executive officer, Chong Phit Lian, said the airline hoped to bring international tourists to Sabah from or via Singapore to make up for the decreasing number of tourists affected by airline companies that ceased to operate flights to Sabah.

"Jetstar Asia will be flying daily between Kota Kinabalu and Singapore beginning Dec 20 to encourage visitations in both destinations whether for business or pleasure.

"Currently, Jetstar Asia operates four flights a week," she said.

Puerto Princesa-Kota Kinabalu flights begin
Wednesday December 3, 2008

KOTA KINABALU: Philippine domestic airline South East Asian Airlines (Seair) has spread its wings to the Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines East Asean Growth Area with the launch of its Puerto Princesa-Kota Kinabalu route here recently.

The route – served by a 32-seater Dornier 328 aircraft – will have flights every Friday departing at 11.45am from Puerto Princesa in Palawan and arriving at 1.45pm in Kota Kinabalu.

“I am confident that Sabah will receive more visitors from the Philippines, particularly from Puerto Princesa, Caticlan (Boracay) and Clark.

“With an affordable single-journey price of Php2,600 (RM192) and less than an hour of travel time, Sabah is a choice destination for travel from Puerto Princesa,” said Sabah Tourism Board chairman Datuk Seri Tengku Zainal Adlin during the route’s launch at Terminal 2 of Kota Kinabalu International Airport here.

He said that Sabah continued to market itself as a premier nature and adventure destination and saw a slight increase in tourists from the Philippines in the January to August period.

A total of 45,229 arrivals were recorded compared to the 44,465 recorded in the same period last year.

Meanwhile, Seair president Avelino Zapanta said the airline may look at increasing the flight’s frequency to twice a week in January, depending on the response.

Seair was set up in 1995 and started operations using two nine–seater aircraft. It has flown almost three million passengers to 12 local tourist destinations. — Bernama

Kota Kinabalu is SEAIR’S Newest Destination
November 16th, 2008

Airline unveils “Paradise to Paradise Plus One” route

A triple treat of fun and adventure awaits passengers as SEAIR unveils its “Paradise to Paradise Plus One” route and offers its first ever international scheduled flight to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia.

The inaugural flights scheduled on November 28 will commence from Clark to Caticlan to Puerto Princesa to Kota Kinabalu. The one-way all-in rate between Caticlan and Puerto Princesa starts from as low as Php 2,212 and Php 1,975 for Puerto Princesa and Kota Kinabalu.

“The overall route allows passengers to visit world renowned destinations in a circuitous route without backtracking. The choice of the Puerto Princesa-Kota Kinabalu route is a result of our being designated as the official RP carrier in the Brunei- Indonesia- Malaysia- Philippines East Asia Growth Area (BIMP EAGA),” said Patrick Tan, SEAIR’s VP for Commercial Affairs.

SEAIR is famous for its “paradise to paradise” destinations and the airline ups it a notch by adding Kota Kinabalu as one of its premiere stops. Aside from its rich tourism industry, Kota Kinabalu is strategically located as a starting point to many of South East Asia’s main cities.


SEAIR has always pioneered new and exciting destinations to help spur development in the tourism sector and the opening of this route is long awaited by all nations in BIMP-EAGA as it marks the first time a BIMP-EAGA carrier is flying between two points in the Growth Area.

Jetstar maiden flight from Singapore lands in Kota Kinabalu
Saturday December 6, 2008

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah is upbeat about its tourism growth despite the global economic crisis.

State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said the state was continuing to post growth in international tourism arrivals, including from Europe and Australia.

He said that Australian tourist arrivals increased by 27% between October and November while European arrivals increased by 23%.

Speaking to reporters at the inaugural Jetstar Asia flight to Kota Kinabalu on Tuesday, Masidi said the flight was added assurance that Sabah’s tourism industry was set to grow despite global economic problems.

Sabah would continue to market itself as the premier nature adventure destination in world, he said, adding that Singaporeans would find Sabah an ideal destination with the entry of Jetstar.

He noted that Jetstar, which would have daily flights between Kota Kinabalu and Singapore from Dec 20, would help connect Sabah to the international tourist market from the island republic hub.

“Singapore is a premier hub in the Asian region and acts as a gateway for people from cities around the world. I trust the Singapore-Kota Kinabalu route will attract more tourist,” he said, adding that Sabah Tourism Board would hold promotions in Singapore to encourage people to visit Sabah.

Jetstar chief executive officer Chong Pitt Lian said that 160 passengers arrived on the maiden flight and the airline would work closely with state tourism players to bring in visitors.

Proposal for direct KK air link with Central K'mantan
Sunday, 07 December, 2008

Kota Kinabalu: Central Kalimantan Governor, Bapak Agustin Teras Narang SH, has proposed a direct flight between here and his provincial capital, Palangkaraya.

He broached the subject to State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister, Datuk Masidi Manjun, at the welcome dinner hosted by the latter to mark the inaugural cultural visit of a delegation from the National Dayak Customs Council (MADN), Kalimantan.

The Governor headed the delegation on their maiden visit to Sabah. Central Kalimantan, in Indonesian Borneo, is that nation's third largest province.

"This would require good co-operation from both sides - Sabah and Central Kalimantan. Perhaps we could have twice-weekly flights. We will have planning on this and my team will come here to discuss the possibility," he said, Saturday.

The Governor, 52, is confident of tourism exchange between the two destinations. "For example, we could have a package like two nights' stay in Palangkaraya and then back to Kota Kinabalu for those interested in visiting our provincial capital."

When told there has been a lot of talk for more cultural exchanges within BIMP-EAGA but it does not seem to be happening, and that even journalists know very little about Central Kalimantan, he said: "Actually, our cultural visit here is the first step towards more cultural exchanges."

On Friday, he invited both the Sabah and Sarawak cultural troupes to visit Palangkaraya. "We will also invite Brunei Darussalam in what could be a collaboration between the three countries - Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei."

Masidi, when contacted, welcomed the "direct flight" proposal, and urged AirAsia and MasWings to consider the proposal if there is enough passenger load. "I will be the happiest man if this materialises but it is a business decision to be made by the airlines concerned."

Noting that it is cumbersome to travel from Kalimantan to Sabah, he said the Governor and his entourage had to charter a plane from Palangkaraya to Kuching before coming to Sabah on Friday.

"Otherwise, they would have to travel from Palangkaraya to Jakarta and then from there to Pontianak before catching a flight to Kuching and then fly from there to Kota Kinabalu."

On another note, Masidi said there are a number of similarities between Sabah and Central Kalimantan which is dominated by Dayaks, the indigenous inhabitants of Borneo.

While Sabah has 35 ethnic groups with 216 sub-ethnic groups, Central Kalimatan alone has four major Dayak tribes (Dayak Ngaju, Dayak Ma'anyan, Dayak Lawangan and Dayak Ot Danum) with 123 sub-ethnic groups.

"This is what made our visitors feel very much at home while here. The Governor told me that he finds Sabah people very nice and friendly. He didn't realise that Sabah is such a beautiful State."

From the one-hour cultural show exchange (presented by the Sabah Cultural Board and MADN), Masidi could see the resemblance in terms of costumes and the features of performers.

"The Dayaks appear to be closer to Sabahans in their looks than being Indonesians," he said.

Most significantly, the Minister said despite our racial mix, there is peaceful co-existence in both Sabah and Central Kalimantan, adding this is an integral part of our lives.

"Like Sabah, the Province also leads the way in demonstrating racial and religious harmony, which means the world can learn about unity in diversity from these two places."

Masidi invited the Governor to send his cultural troupe to participate in next year's International Folklore Festival hosted by Sabah. "I am glad he has accepted it."

At the interview, Teras Narang said he has set his sights on developing and marketing the Borneo region as a major international and local investment destination.

He felt that economically speaking, Kalimantan should not be separated from Sabah, Sarawak and Negara Brunei Darussalam although these states are separated from the "nation" perspective.

"Negara Indonesia, negara Malaysia dan Brunei Darussalam tapi (but) we are in one island, so in my view, we must collaborate in an effort to develop the interests of the respective countries in one island.

"Let us join together to develop this island, of course, not only for the people in this island but also for the world," he said.
