AirAsia and MAS air route revamp going on smoothly

Kota Kinabalu: The recently implemented domestic rationalisation exercise involving Malaysia Airlines and Air Asia is going on smoothly, said Assistant Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister, Datuk Karim Bujang.

"So far so good, we have not received any complaints from tour agents and even tourists in Sabah," he said.

Karim advised those facing any problems to come forward and see officials at his Ministry within a week or two. "If they (tour agents or tourist) face any problems, we will try to assist," he said.

The exercise that was implemented on August 1 saw AirAsia through Fly Asian Xpress (FAX) taking over the domestic routes in Sabah, such as to Lahad Datu and to destinations in Sarawak.

FAX is operating via the Low Cost Carrier Terminal or Terminal Two at Tanjung Aru while Malaysia Airlines is at the main terminal in Kepayan.
