Kota Kinabalu, May 7: The return of Royal Brunei Airlines to Sabah has now made it more possible for tourists from Brunei and other countries to visit Sabah.
Royal Brunei Airlines is the second foreign airline to resume direct flights to Kota Kinabalu, following Singapore’s low-cost carrier Scoot, recently.
Tourism, Culture, and Environment Assistant Minister cum Sabah Tourism Board chairman Datuk Joniston Bangkuai said the return of foreign carriers is a great indication for the tourism and economy of Sabah.
“We are pleased to welcome the return of the Royal Brunei Airlines flight,” Bangkuai said.
“The connectivity from Brunei will help with transiting international passengers, especially from routes that were previously in service from Australia, the United Kingdom, the Middle East and Japan.
“Sabah is ready to accommodate tourists, and we hope that more foreign airlines will begin direct flights to Kota Kinabalu.
“With more direct flights from cities across the ASEAN region, we can expect an increase in visitors,” he said.
On Friday, Bangkuai welcomed passengers of the Royal Brunei Airlines at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport.
He was accompanied by State Tourism, Culture and Environment Ministry Permanent Secretary Datuk Mohd Yusrie Abdullah; Sabah Tourism Board chief executive officer Noredah Othman; and Senior Vice President of passenger, cargo, and charter sales for Royal Brunei Airlines Christina Chua.
