KOTA KINABALU: Philippine Airlines is considering incorporating Kota Kinabalu and also Sandakan as some of its destinations.
Its vice president Ryan T. Uy said the airline is currently studying the available routes in Sabah.
“We used to fly to Kota Kinabalu. We know that Kota Kinabalu has a large Filipino population,” said Ryan.
He said the airline is well aware that the people of Sabah are in need of more flight options.
“There are Sabahans who would want to fly to North America, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and China,” he Ryan.
By having Kota Kinabalu as one of its destinations, it will be easier for Sabahans to travel to these countries, he added.
The Asean countries are also currently being looked into by Philippine Airlines, and it is planning to link more Sabahans to its neighboring Asean countries via its Manila hub, Ryan told the media during the re-launch of the Philippine Airlines’ direct flight between Kuala Lumpur and Manila yesterday.
