Covid-19: Airlines seek emergency aid as coronavirus brings industry to near-halt

usually people didn't see the importance of air flight service in East Malaysia due to the lack of knowledge about how remote some area is. I don't mean to be mean but some people in peninsular just didn't know how difficult to move around fast in East malaysia especially when there's emergency happens. Oh by the way, i live in peninsular as well. But i do know a bit (though not much) about east malaysia.

i remember how D7 is born by obtaining the AOC with operating the RAS and end up giving up after a year operating it (despite with the subsidy from govt), leaving a bunch of fokkers in bad condition back to MASWing. So, something that is not really private sector able to cope with like example the RAS in borneo. Because it is basically a public service, and burning money to do so. it will never profitable in any measure (in totality).

Anyway, cheers everyone. Stay safe in this period.

For us in east Malaysia they're essential. In a week so many stretcher pax flying to the west Malaysia and AK was not keen on getting certified for that since 2008.

Would foreign airline operate BKI-SDK 3x daily? or BKI-KCH with 4x daily? I seriously doubt that can happen unless gov fork out money to buy planes for them.

It will be fine to close down MAB provided no suspension in any routes immediately. Best solution is to sell it of to competent companies and let them immediately resume all routes. But will there be one interested to buy now with Covid now in place?

Believe it is more cost effective and beneficial for gomen to relocate resources spent on MH to upgrade and maintain hospital facilities in KCH and BKI, and supplement with contract or chartered PC-12 or King Air air ambulance .

Not that foreign airlines won't serve BKI-SDK or BKI-KCH, it is just not permitted. Believe MI, TR, KA would be happy to ply SIN-BKI-SDK, SIN-KCH-BKI, HKG-BKI-KCH, HKG-BKI-SDK. If MI or KA is allowed to set up a regional hub at BKI and KCH, could base or contract a few regional jet to feed BKI-HKG, BKI-SIN, KCH-SIN like LH/EN in Italy.

Inter city road in Sabah and Sarawak has been neglected on purpose for many years. by keeping the people poor and rely on gomen handout, those in power could demand their votes.

A lot of specialist doctors are in the west are not keen on relocating to east Malaysia. Its the same for Indonesian patients from Kalimantan sulawesi flying to Jakarta to sort any special illnesses all on Garuda and how people from Chiang Rai flew all the way to Bangkok as well on Thai.

You're aware that pc12 cant carry max stretcher? For mab they had to block 2-3 rows of seats which is why airasia bailed out. So far only private jets with wide enough cabins like the challenger and citation are capable of it. But chartering them can cost a fortune is the patient or insurance gonna fork out rm22k for an hour ride on a citation?

Look at how mi and ka did. They dumped bki and kch cause it was not feasible even using scoot is struggling for them. If they were to add the flights as well will they honor the frequency requirement. Doing just hkg-bki-sdk thrice a week doesn't cut it. Maswings was berated for poor frequency as well.

To call for improved highways look at what Pakatan did to Panborneo project. But even if that highway were to be completed no average person is going to drive from kuching all the way to kk.
