Kota Kinabalu International Airport registers 11.2 pct growth in passenger movement this year
By KRISTY INUS December 20, 2017 @ 1:15pm

KOTA KINABALU: Passenger traffic movement at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) stood at 7.3 million people in November, an 11.2 per cent growth compared to the same period last year.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd managing director Datuk Badlisham Ghazali said the international segment received an even bigger growth, registering 2.3 million people or a 22.1 percent hike compared to the previous year.

“We are glad to see this increase especially after our pledge in the last two years to further support the development of tourism in Sabah by intensifying efforts to promote the state as a destination.

“Tourism in Sabah is at its peak right now, with each town offering fabulous local activities combining nature and culture,” he said.

In a statement announcing the new route by Indonesia’s Batik Air, connecting Kota Kinabalu with Jakarta, starting today, Badlisham said the new route is timely as Indonesians can now enjoy Sabah at its best.

The new route, said Badlisham, will also benefit both Malaysia and Indonesia.

Batik Air will start flying direct from Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport to KKIA twice a week following its successful inaugural flight today.

Batik Air will use its fleet of Airbus A320 or Boeing 737-900 ER to operate the new route.

The Kota Kinabalu route was part of the carrier’s plan to expand its international network. Earlier this month, it had flown to two new domestic destinations in Indonesia namely Silangit (North Sumatra) and Labuan Bajo (on the Island of Flores).

Batik Air president director Captain Achmad Luthfie is confident that the Jakarta-KK route will contribute to economic growth, and added the possibility of increasing flight frequency to seven times a week based on the forecast passenger load factor.

“On top of that, Batik Air also plans to develop more new routes to East Malaysian destinations such as Kuching,” Achmad said.

With a fleet size of 51 aircraft, Batik Air at present serves over 35 domestic destinations. Its international destinations include Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Chennai and Perth.

KK-Beijing flights set to start Jan 16
19 December 2017

KOTA KINABALU, Dec 19 — Direct flights linking Sabah's capital to Beijing, China will commence in January and are set to bolster the state's tourism sector.

Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said the new air link is expected to begin on January 16, and noted that China was already one of the state's biggest source of visitors.

“But the direct flight from China will be a game changer. There will be an opportunity to improve on the quality of tourists as we can tap into the rich Northern Chinese market from Beijing,” he said at his ministry’s Christmas celebration here today.

He added that details were being finalised and the necessary paperwork being prepared for Xiamen Air to begin flying the route.

Sabah is additionally expected to add at least three more Chinese cities — Changsha, Tianjin and Guangzhou — to its air connectivity network next year.

Masidi also announced today that Indonesia-based airline, Batik Air, will commence direct flights between Kota Kinabalu and Jakarta beginning tomorrow, December 20.

“This is good news for us, not just for the tourism industry but also speaks volumes about their faith in us and how stable we are as a state,” he said.

AirAsia previously had direct flights running the route, but these were cancelled.
