Study on flights to Mount Kinabalu summit

KOTA KINABALU: A detailed assessment will have to be done on the feasibility of flights to the Mount Kinabalu summit, said Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun.

“We need to look into the safety issue first,” he said when asked whether Sabah Parks would allow for “helicopter tourism” on the 4,095m mountain after such an aircraft landed on the summit on Nov 16.

On board the helicopter was Sabah Parks chairman Datuk Seri Zainal Tengku Adlin Tengku Mahamood who flew down from the mountain on a tandem paraglider.
