MASwings halts Kuching-BSB route effective Oct 26

KUCHING: The community carrier of Malaysia Airlines (MAS), MASwings, will suspend its four-time weekly services between here and Bandar Seri Begawan in Brunei via Mulu effective Oct 26 this year.

In a press statement yesterday, the commuter airline said the decision was part of its network rationalisation focused on expanding its domestic routes, which remained its core market.

Its chief executive officer Capt Ritzerwan Rashid remarked: “MASwings continuously reviews its network strategy to meet market needs, as well as to support economic growth in Sabah and Sarawak.

“We are committed to being our guests’ first choice to get across the vast states of Sabah and Sarawak. Hence, being able to put these resources to where the market demands them is important.”

With regard to the suspension of the Kuching-Bandar Seri Begawan route, MASwings would notify all affected guests via emails, SMS alerts and calls.
