“They are planning to support Sarawak’s domestic scheduled flights by operating the Kuching-Miri-Kuching route in quarter four of 2023.

“MOTS and the people of Sarawak are looking forward to the opening of this additional frequency between Kuching and Miri, as it will create choices of flights and timing mobility between the routes,” said the ministry.
