From June, budget air carrier, AirAsia, and other airlines can begin operating direct flights between Singapore and the east coast Sabah towns of Sandakan and Tawau according to Malaysia's Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat.
The direct flights from Singapore are certain to boost the economy of these two towns of Sandakan and Tawau, particularly the tourism sector as the two towns are the gateways to Sabah's wildlife and diving havens.
The respective airlines are in the process of determining the frequency of flights they intend to mount between Singapore and the two towns.
Currently AirAsia operates direct flights between Singapore and Kota Kinabalu, Miri and Kuching.
