Malaysian Airlines (MAS) had recently introduced a direct flight between Kuala Lumpur and Tawau (East Coast of Sabah Malaysia Borneo) on 31 October 2004.
Currently, there is only one direct (non-stop) flight per week on every Thursday. The schedule as follows:
Thursday -- MH2662 -- Depart 12:40 -- Arrive 15:30 -- 734 Aircraft
Thursday -- MH2663 -- Depart 19:05 -- Arrive 21:45 -- 734 Aircraft
This is a great piece of news for especially scuba divers as it will cut down airfare cost if they were to fly to Sabah from KL. In the past, they would need to fly to Kota Kinabalu first before transiting (or overnight) to Tawau, and further transported to Sipadan/Mabul/Kapalai islands by road to Semporna and by speedboat from Semporna jetty.
It is hope that there will be more demand for the KUL-TWU direct flight to render an increase in its weekly flight frequency.
