In a bid to serve passenger demands, Malaysia Airlines will be operating flights between Penang, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching from 18 November 2016.
The national carrier will be operating this route seasonally to coincide with the peak holiday period until December 2016. The service resumes again during the Chinese New Year period.
Both Penang – Kuching and Penang – Kota Kinabalu services will be operated four times weekly.
According to Malaysia Airlines CEO Peter Bellew:
“We are super excited to be announcing our new route which connects Penang with Kota Kinabalu and Kuching and we do hope our guests take advantage of this great deal. We believe this will open up greater domestic tourism for Sabah, Sarawak and Penang. Penang. This sector also complements Firefly’s schedule and benefits those looking for onward connections to Malaysia’s largest secondary cities.”
This service is in line with Malaysia Airlines efforts in adopting a more agile and adaptive approach towards the market’s needs.
