MALAYSIA Airlines marked another milestone in its network expansion plan by introducing a direct flight route between Kota Kinabalu and Singapore, which commenced operations yesterday.
The inaugural flight was commemorated with a welcome ceremony for passengers who arrived at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI) at 12.25pm local time via flight MH648 from Changi International Airport (SIN).
Izham Ismail, the group chief executive officer of Malaysia Aviation Group, which runs Malaysia Airlines, said the route will boost connectivity and flexibility for passengers bound for Singapore as the airline also offers direct flights to the republic via its main hub of Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Kuching.
“With this new service, passengers from Singapore can seamlessly connect to the Land Below the Wind to discover its scenic attractions and even fly to surrounding states from BKI via sister airlines Firefly and MASwings,” he said in a statement today.,
“We look forward to further expanding our growth, introducing strategic routes and increasing our capacity to achieve more than 70% of our pre-Covid-19 capacity by year end.”
Meanwhile, Sabah Tourism Board CEO Noredah Othman said since the reopening of the SIN-BKI route in April, the route recorded an upward trend with 1,248 and 3,051 arrivals in May and June respectively.
“With the inclusion of Malaysia Airlines, we are confident that this trend will continue,” she said.
Malaysia Airlines will operate the direct flights three times weekly – Monday, Thursday and Saturday – departing from BKI via MH647 at 7am and departing SIN via MH648 at 10am.
The flights will be operated by B737-800 aircraft, equipped with 160 seats – 16 in business class and 144 in economy class. – Bernama, August 28, 2022.
