KUCHING: Sarawak is currently working out the details on a proposal to set up its own airline company.
Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said the state government was trying to revisit the old proposal, where it expressed an interest in taking over MASWings.
He said MASWings at the time was owned by Malaysia Airlines (now known as Malaysia Airlines Berhad), which was reluctant to sell it to Sarawak.
“Now, we have a few options to have our own small airline connecting Kuching with other strategic destinations in the region.
“We are working out the details now,” he told a press conference after launching the AirAsia Sarawak Campaign Livery at Kuching International Airport here today.
Asked when it would take off, he said: “As soon as possible. That is my expectation.”
