BKI | Kota Kinabalu International Airport

Since Kota Kinabalu International Airport(KKIA) is the second most busiest airport in Malaysia after KLIA!





Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) (IATA: BKI, ICAO: WBKK) is located about 8 km from the city of Kota Kinabalu, the state capital of Sabah, Malaysia. It is the second busiest airport in Malaysia after Kuala Lumpur International Airport with around 4 million passengers using this airport annually for domestic and international flights. It is also the main gateway into the state of Sabah. In 2006, about 2 million unique tourists visited Sabah, and it is estimated that this number will exceed 2.5 million by the end of 2007.

Terminal 1

Terminal 1 is the main terminal of KKIA. It is accessed via Jalan Putatan in Petagas nearby Kepayan. Currently its technical facilities includes 12 gates, 5 airbridges, and 4 baggage claim belts. It has the capacity of handling 2.5 million passenger annually. It also features duty-free shops, other shops, lounges, travel agents, restaurants, and many others. It is currently undergoing a massive renovation and expansion (see above). Malaysia Airlines is the main operating airline in this terminal.

Terminal 2

What is today Terminal 2 used to be the original terminal building of the airport when it was first built. It is accessed via Jalan Mat Salleh in Tanjung Aru and is located on the other side of the runway from Terminal 1. Terminal 2 has recently undergone a major renovation and extension and it re-opened on January 1, 2007 in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2007. Although it is renovated to serve the low cost carriers, namely AirAsia, it is not a low cost carrier terminal (LCCT) as that of Kuala Lumpur International Airport, as other full service airlines may use the terminal.[6] It has 26 check-in counters for domestic and international flights and six parking bays for B737 and A320 aircraft as well as seven luggage x-ray machines, a VIP room and 13 immigration counters. AirAsia will make Kota Kinabalu the main hub for flights from China to Malaysia due to Kota Kinabalu being the nearest Malaysian hub to China.

AirAsia is expected to start flying to Shenzen, Xiamen, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Indonesia in 2007. Sabah Government is optimistic in targeting more visitors from Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, South Korea, Japan and Russia.

Kota Kinabalu airport upgrade leads to cancellation of 60 chartered flights
Sunday July 8, 2007


KOTA KINABALU: The upgrading of the international airport here has forced the cancellation of 60 international chartered flights to Sabah.

Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said that there was nothing much they could do about it but wait for the upgrading of the KKIA project to be completed by 2009.

"Most of these charter flights bringing tourist, prefer to land late nights but they cannot do so because of works at the airport," he said, adding that he would try and see what can be done to assist the state tourism players on this matter.

Adnan, who had a dialogue with hoteliers, tour operators and tour guides separately to hear their problems, said that he was informed the flights were mainly from China, Japan and some west Asian countries.

However, he stressed that his ministry was pushing for more direct flights to Sabah.

Adnan said that he held discussions with the Singapore based Tiger Air and several operators in Japan and China to consider Kota Kinabalu, which is described as a top eco-tourism destination in the region.

"I am pushing for open skies," he said, adding that his ministry was in discussion with the Transport Ministry over the matter.

He said he was also persuading Malaysia Airlines subsidiary Fire Fly to consider making Kota Kinabalu a regional hub to cover the East Asean Growth Area encompassing Sabah, Sarawak, southern Philippines, Sulawesi and Kalimantan.

Sabah Wants Direct Flights With Australia Revived
July 14 2007

RANAU, July 14 (Bernama) -- The Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Ministry and Sabah Tourism Board (STB) are pursuing to revive direct flights between Kota Kinabalu and Sydney, Australia after Australian Airlines ceased its flight operations between the two cities in April 2005.

Its minister, Datuk Masidi Manjun said his ministry and STB will be meeting relevant authorities in Australia soon to revive the Kota Kinabalu-Sydney flight as well as looking into the possibility of putting direct flights between Sabah and other destinations in Australia to lure more Australian tourists to the state.

"The only airline that is ferrying Australian tourists to Sabah is Brunei Airlines, but they still have to transit at Bandar Seri Begawan before coming to Kota Kinabalu.

"But we hope to have direct flights between Sabah and Australia," he told reporters after the official unveiling of the Death March Memorial plaque on Quailey Hill at the Sabah Tea Garden here, today.

Masidi said the reason Australian Airlines stopped its KK-Sydney flight was because of insufficient load which made it not viable to continue.

"Sabah Tourism has been working very hard to sell Sabah to Australia and we hope tourists from the country would rise to a significant level.

"We have a history with Australia which is acknowledged with the War Memorial in Kundasang, the Death March from Sandakan to Ranau which we commemorate every year and now we have the Death March Memorial Plaque all of which associate Sabah to Australians. So, we hope the shared history will bring Ausutralians to Sabah," he said.

The plaque was unveilled near a large tree on a hill in the Sabah Tea Garden estate where it was believed Australian Private Alan Quailey lost his will to continue with the death march from Sandakan to Ranau and died at the age of 24 in February 1945.

A member of the Quailey family, Lynette Brown, traced Alan's history to the hill which was duly named Quailey Hill by Sabah Tea Garden.

An emotional memorial service was given to the young private who perished there, participated by some 20 Australians who came to visit the route that their 2,428 fellow countrymen had been forced to take.

MAHB targets 45.5m in passenger traffic
By Tamimi Omar


Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) targets to grow overall passenger traffic to 45.5 million this year for all 39 airports under its management from 42.5 million in 2006 due to the expected high tourist arrivals for Visit Malaysia Year 2007.

MAHB managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said if the Tourism Ministry’s target of 20 million tourists is reached this year, MAHB would stand to gain a lot in terms of passenger traffic volume.

MAHB manages and operates five international airports, 16 domestic and 18 short take-off and landing ports in the country.

“We see an increase of three million (in passenger traffic), or 7% for all our airports this year,” he told The Edge FinancialDaily in an interview before the official launch of Kota Kinabalu International Airport’s (KKIA) Terminal 2 (T2) recently.

Bashir said the forecast was based on the current number of airline operators travelling to or inside Malaysia.

He said there would be four or five new airlines coming into Malaysia this year while Australian Airlines is pulling out its operations.

Bashir said the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) saw the highest volume last year with 24.1 million travellers, followed by KKIA with four million, Kuching with 3.2 million and Penang with three million.

“The passenger volume for KLIA would have been higher last year if Malaysia Airlines had not pulled out some of its flights.

“The target of 45 million travellers is based on historical performance; if things remain the same, then we will reach the target,” he said.

On the newly launched KKIA T2, which started operations on Jan 1, 2007, Bashir said the terminal’s maximum capacity was three million.

“We expect a growth of 50% per annum for T2, and we expect the terminal to reach maximum capacity within the next three to four years,” Bashir said.

He said when that happened, flight operators could use terminal one to unload passengers when needed.

Bashir said the government had spent RM60 million to upgrade KKIA T2 to meet expected growth in passenger traffic in Kota Kinabalu, especially from travellers using low-cost airlines.

“There is a misconception that T2 is a low-cost terminal; it is not. Even though the terminal was built to cater to AirAsia, full service operators can use the terminal.

“Terminal one and two can now support up to four million people, but when the entire work is completed in 2009, both terminals will be able to handle up to 10 million people,” he said.
