We believe that the introduction of this new route will further boost the East Malaysia economy and contribute to a hike in the number of tourist arrivals into East Malaysia.
This route is definitely sustainable as Singapore is an international gateway, as well as AirAsia’s virtual hub with 401 weekly flights from Singapore, while Miri is the second largest city in Sarawak with a significant number of expatriates and international students.
