MASwings launches international flights within the island of Borneo
MASwings, the regional subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines that launched in October 2007, has introduced new international services from Kota Kinabalu (BKI) and Kuching (KCH) to Bandar Seri Begawan (BWN), the capital of Brunei. The Kota Kinabalu route is less than 200 kilometres and is served twice-daily with the airline’s ATR72s. The Kuching service operates three times weekly. Brunei is also connected to Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur, by AirAsia, Malaysia Airlines and Royal Brunei Airlines. MASwings’ third new route this week is between Kuching (KCH) and Pontianak (PNK) on the Indonesian side of Borneo. This route will be served daily. These routes are all part of the airline’s plans to grow in the so-called BIMP-EAGA region (Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines – East Asean Growth Area).
