MASwings to expand its Sabah and Sarawak routes

MASWINGS is set to expand its Sabah and Sarawak routes due to growing demand.

Managing director Datuk Mohd Salleh Ahmad Tabrani said since its establishment in Sarawak and Sabah in 2007 with 450 flights per week, demand had increased up to about 900 flights per week in 2010.

“This represents a growth of more that 100% over a three-year period,” he said during the MASwings Agent and Media Appreciation Dinner in Kuching on Saturday.

He said that translated to about 45,000 passengers per month in 2007 to about 104,000 per month in 2010, an increase of more than 130%.

“This great success would not be possible if not for the strong support and contribution of the agents and the media. MASwings will continue to further develop and explore business opportunities in Sabah and Sarawak.

“MASwings is looking forward to developing new and innovative travel and tourism packages and products that could further increase Sabah and Sarawak’s inbound and outbound tourism and air travel,” added Salleh.

Meanwhile, MASwings is offering great bargains at only RM80 for travels from Kota Kinabalu to Labuan, Tawau, Sandakan and Lahad Datu.

Customers connecting from Kuching to Kota Kinabalu can enjoy fares from RM115. The all-inclusive fares quoted are for one way travel only.

The “Year End Extravaganza” sale is from Dec 16 - 31 with tickets available at Malaysia Airlines and MASwings ticketing counter, call centre, internet booking (www.maswings.com.my) and travel agents.
