Hong Kong based airline to fly direct to Sarawak

An undisclosed airline based in Hong Kong is expected to start flying direct from Hong Hong to here as early as February next year.

Tourism Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg, in his speech at the 6th Sarawak Hornbill Tourism Awards 2013/2014 on Sunday night, said a joint announcement on this development would be made soon.

He said it would augur well for the state’s tourism as currently the only international scheduled flights were from Singapore.

Abang Johari said the Hong Kong-Kuching sector could result in more Chinese tourists to the state as Chinese nationals tended to visit Hong Kong first before travelling overseas.
