HK, Taiwan airlines to begin direct flights to Sabah soon
16 Apr 2011
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...7&sec=business

KOTA KINABALU: Hong Kong Express and Mandarin Airlines will begin direct flights to Sabah, said State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun.

He said Hong Kong Express would ply the HK-Kota Kinabalu route while Mandarin Airlines the Taipei-Kota Kinabalu route.

“The new flights are expected to boost tourists from the two nations to Sabah. For the Taiwanese, we hope the visa-free privileges will create more interest among them to come here,” Masidi said after a briefing on Sabah Fest 2011 yesterday.

Hong Kong Express is a unit of Hong Kong Airlines while Mandarin Airlines is China Airlines’ regional and domestic subsidiary.

Masidi said while Hong Kong Express had confirmed plans to fly twice a week for the route, Mandarin Airlines was still in discussions over the landing rights.

Earlier this month, a local daily quoted Hong Kong Airlines sales manager for Malaysia, David Wooi, as saying the maiden flight would depart at 12.05pm on April 22 from Hong Kong Airport and arrive at Kota Kinabalu International Airport at 3.05pm the same day. — Bernama

Kong: AirAsia has to move to Terminal 1of KK airport
Published: 2011/06/22
http://www1.btimes.com.my/Current_Ne...aris2/Article/

LE BOURGET (Paris): Budget carrier AirAsia has to move its flight operations to Terminal 1 of the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA), Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha says.

"Actually, the government has made the decision that they (AirAsia) have to move. It's not the ministry's decision," he told Malaysian media here on Monday.

Earlier this year, AirAsia's chief executive officer Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said the airline was hesitant about moving from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 of KKIA because operational costs would increase.

He said this would lead to reduction in the number of flights and ultimately cause Sabah to lose about one million tourists.

According to the Transport Ministry, Terminal 1, equipped with modern facilities including the aerobridge, could fulfill the needs of commercial flights and cater to up to 14 million passengers.

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri had said Terminal 1 could help passengers avoid missing flights and reduce costs as they needed to hire taxis to go to Terminal 2.

FINAL DEADLINE FOR KKIA UPGRADE

New Sabah Times
8th August, 2011


KOTA KINABALU: The contractor doing upgrading work at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) has been given another deadline to complete the task.

This will be the third and final extension and work is now expected to be completed by the first quarter of next year.

Disclosing this, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha explained that the contractor is struggling to meet the various earlier deadlines, especially in the expansion of the runway from 2,988 metres to 3,780 metres as well as taxi-ways due to several factors.

“There have been many constraints for the contractor, especially in the expansion of the runway because part of it is still being used for take-off and landing of aircraft.

“And, there is also very limited time as the work is mainly done after midnight when the runway is closed,” he told reporters here yesterday after being briefed by Malaysia Airports Berhad on the current situation of the project, here.

Kong hoped the contractor would put in more effort, including hiring more manpower, to meet the new deadline as KKIA was receiving more demands from international airlines to fly to Kota Kinabalu.

He said due to those demands, the development of the airport, which was 89.78 per cent complete as of July 31, was now in a critical situation as it had become the second busiest airport in the country after the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Kong also said many aircraft could not land very late at night due to the upgrading work.

“This is the final deadline for the contractor to complete the work,”he pointed out.

Meanwhile, he said the delay in completion would not incur additional funding.

The expansion and upgrading of the KKIA is undertaken by Global Upline Sdn Bhd.

The project was originally scheduled to be completed in April 2009 and the contractor had already been granted two extensions – the first till December 2009 and the second, till May last year.

Emirates may fly to Sabah
Date Posted: 20 Sep 2011
http://www.sabahtourism.com/sabah-ma...-fly-to-sabah/

KUALA LUMPUR: Middle Eastern airline Emirates is looking at the possibility of flying out of other destinations in Malaysia in the next three to five years.

The carrier currently offers three flights daily out of Kuala Lumpur to Dubai. One extends to Melbourne.

"We have made initial studies but we have not decided on it yet. There is lot of potential out of Penang if you ask me, but it will be about two years from now before we decide on anything," Emirates Malaysia country manager Kavin Martinus said.

Another destination Emirates is looking at in Malaysia is the Kota Kinabalu - Dubai route. This was part of a feasibility study done by Emirates five to six years ago on a 10-year plan to identify new growth areas for itself in Malaysia.

"Kota Kinabalu is also in the pipeline, eventually with so many aircraft on order and so many destinations we cannot discount that possibility," Martinus said.

While in Europe, Emirates flies out of multiple destinations in one country, it has not replicated this strategy in Southeast Asia. The airline's strategy is to fly to primary points Yfirst and slowly expand.

"We play it safe and fly to business destinations first, if we have proper business traffic then leisure traffic will follow," Martinus said.

The airline normaYlly takes feedback from all stations before starting a new route.

Emirates has a fleet of 153 aircraft now, servicing over 100 cities around the world. It has 75 Airbus 380s, 70 Airbus 350s and 49 Boeing 777s on order.
