In line with its transformation process, Malaysia Airlines has announced to suspend four regional routes from Sabah next year, apart from the eight international flights taken off its schedule in 2012.
The flights that will affected in this process are:
- Effective January 6, 2012: Twice-weekly Kota Kinabalu-Osaka return B737 route
- Effective January 31, 2012: Thrice-weekly Kota Kinabalu-Perth return B737 route
- Effective February 1, 2012: Four times weekly Kota Kinabalu-Haneda (Tokyo) return B737 route
- Effective February 21, 2012: Four times weekly Kota Kinabalu-Seoul return B737 route
The MAS group chief executive officer Ahmad Jauhari Yahya in his press statement said “This suspension is until further notice and is part of our regional network consolidation involving single-aisle aircraft operations. We will be reviewing this situation in about three months time from the date of the first route suspension and will be deciding further by early April 2012,”
During the suspension, MAS will take advantage of existing code-share operations with Korean Air for direct connectivity between Sabah and South Korea on the Korean carrier’s Seoul-Kota Kinabalu return direct flights. MAS also will continue offering direct international connectivity to Kota Kinabalu through our existing daily B737 flights from Hong Kong and Taipei.
For all travellers who have made booking earlier, MAS will make alternative carrier arrangements, at its own cost, to ensure minimum discomfort to passengers.
