AFAIK, there are some Sarawakian community residing in Tawau (chiefly from ethnic Iban). So, there could be some demand from KCH.

beside, it will also bring up the new market or travel pattern like China-BKI-TWU/Semporna-KCH-BKI-China or vice versa

which nowadays many choose to BKI-TWU-KUL or another way round.

Direct flight yes..... but from Kuching? whats the strategy here?

You mentioned CAN-TWU and that was what my reply was referencing to

No idea on thinking behind KCH-TWU, don't think many people saw that coming  :)

Interesting

Do you have any idea how much is BKI being used as a transit stop for China/S.Korea-Sarawak traffic ?

I suspect there must be some, BKI-KCH vv used to be like a dismal double daily years ago, nowadays a quite respectable 6x daily (and OD coming into picture soon too I believe) in parallel with the increase in China/S.Korea flights

I noticed that despite the hype, BKI - KCH fare is relatively cheap. Can get 89 one way 2 days before departure.

A local newspaper reported last time that it is sometimes even cheaper for you to fly from SBW to BKI via KCH on Air Asia than directly from SBW to BKI on MASWings

as of a 1hr20mins flight it's quite cheap. if compare to the 45mins flight to TWU... easily get up to RM150/sector.

i dunno the exact volume, but KCH is getting more popular for China tourist as i known. only that, they lack of direct flight, or maybe foreign carrier decided not to fly direct to KCH due to abused power by some authority. :pardon:
 

anyway, seems like China Southern interested to fly JHB, as they got a team of crew just went there.

PT AirAsia Indonesia Extra AOC is now revised to charter only, no longer doing scheduled flight.

XT will lease five A320 to QZ, and both A333 will be reassigned to XJ. This would effectively means XT will have zero aircraft in fleet, physically.

Wow, that means XJ will take these two plus another two aircraft in rapid succession...

 

Maybe they can really use it during the Christmas and CNY peak seasons...
