Sabah seeking solution to problems caused by fewer flights

By Jaswinder Kaur

KOTA KINABALU: SABAH will seek a solution to grouses voiced by assemblymen and the business community following the reduction in the number of MAS flights to Sandakan and Tawau from Kota Kinabalu.

Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman said he has instructed the Tourism, Culture and Environment Ministry to hold talks with the Federal Transport Ministry, MAS and AirAsia to solve the problem.

"We have received reports about the impact of the reduction in flights, especially to Sandakan and Tawau. It has to a certain extent affected tourism and business activities and we hope we can find a solution soon. In the meantime, we ask the public to be patient as we are sensitive about what is happening," Musa said.

He was speaking to reporters after the Sabah Legislative Assembly sitting.
