KOTA KINABALU – Local community airline MASwings is suspending its Kuching-Bandar Seri Begawan via Mulu service effective October 26, The Star reported.
The airline ceased its Kota Kinabalu-Puerto Princesa in southern Philippines service on September 1.
The decision to suspend the Kuching-Mulu- Bandar Seri Begawan operation was part of the airlines’ continued network rationalisation, said MASwings chief executive officer Capt Ritzerwan Rashif.
He added that the focus of the Kota Kinabalu-based airline was growing its core market in domestic routes.
“MASwings continuously reviews its network strategy to meet market needs and support economic growth in Sabah and Sarawak,” said Capt Ritzerwan.
All affected MASwings passengers will be notified via e-mail, SMS blast and calls.
They will be offered options to change their travel plans to an earlier date or be fully refunded.
Passengers can continue to fly daily from Kota Kinabalu to Bandar Seri Begawan on MASwings code share flights with Royal Brunei Airlines.
