  10. True. 1 thing I like about KKIA is due to its close proximity to the city center. If they decided to build a new airport for KK, they should find a new location not too far from the city center. 20km should be acceptable but not a 50km or 1 hour drive away. But judging from the current situation, there is no requirement to build a new one. As some people here already mentioned, Bali and Phuket are more popular destinations yet no new airport were built to cater the increased of tourists arrivals. The current airport can be expanded with additional terminal.

  15. You are welcome. I also came across this wonderful article while searching something else on Google. From the article, it seems that MH mainline will be operating the regional jet from SZB. No mentioned anything about FY. So I guess if the plan materialized, MH will be based several regional jets in SZB while FY retaining its turboprop operations there.
