MASwings announces new Bario-Long Banga route
Additionally, it aims to boost the local tourism industry by creating new opportunities for economic development in rural areas.
Kota Kinabalu: MASwings, known as the Pulse of Borneo, is delighted to announce an expansion of its operations and the introduction of a new route from Bario (BBN) to Long Banga (LBP), effective October 29. 

The enhanced services include flight frequencies on key routes: Kuching to Limbang, Miri to Bario and Long Seridan, and Mukah to Kuching.

The additional operations and introduction of the new route are part of MASwings’ ongoing business review and align with the ‘Hybrid Flexi 3.0 Network Plan’ aimed at route rationalisation.

The changes have received approval from the Ministry of Transport (MOT) Malaysia through the Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom).

The primary goal of this initiative is to provide local communities with convenient transportation options, supporting small businesses and leisure travel.

Additionally, it aims to boost the local tourism industry by creating new opportunities for economic development in rural areas.

“The network rationalisation of our domestic flight routes under the Public Service Obligation’s (PSO) is essential for the long-term success of the Rural Air Services (RAS) operations,” said MASwings Chief Operating Officer Suresh Singam, in a statement, here, Monday. 

“This strategic move follows extensive business reviews and continuous dialogues with key stakeholders from Mavcom, alongside the Sabah and Sarawak State Governments. 

“These adjustments are designed to ensure that MASwings utilises its fleet at an optimum level while meeting the needs of the communities we serve. 

“We are steadfast in our commitment to supporting the State Governments’ aspirations for the continuous economic growth and development of Sabah and Sarawak, as MASwings remain the sole connecting rural areas within Borneo,” Suresh added.
