Yup, charter flight AirAsia from KBR to TWU bring extra armed forces based in Kelantan to Sabah. I just saw at KBR this afternoon our armed forces get ready to fly there.

Saw scenes of the troops with their family before boarding and it was just like what you see in the movies about American troops before their deployment. Truly touching. I personally went up to them to thank them and wish them well before they boarded. 

 

do the troops need to pay for their own food and drinks on board??

 

For the sacrifices they made, I sure hope Uncle Tony sponsored it. I'm surprised that AirAsia (instead of MH or RMAF) is doing the transport for the army.

Sometimes, during the KUD transit, the aircraft is parked closer to the runway...and during transit stopover at KUD, you can lie down on the runway on the pretext of getting a bug's eye view of the Twotter.

Welcome you can also try it. Schedule very Monday and Thursday only. Load factor was pretty good for SDK-KUD/KUD-SDK however flights from or to BKI was rather light. Or you can wait until they are all replaced by the new Vikings.
