Well, does QF fly to BNE from Sin?? You can try KCH-JHB-SIN-BNE-SIN-KUL-KCH using AK-taxi-QF-QF-TR/AK-AK hehehe... RBA is cheapest as far as i am concern when flying from KCH, but on the return leg u need to tidur at the airport mah...which is the downside somehow, plus boring airport hahaha...but for a budget, thats the way to go ..
I'm planning to go Perth using QF, but heard onboard food sucks.. vege mostly... yucks... pardon.gif
Whichever airline u choose bro... it's sure far better than MH, try something else before its gone good.gif

QZ seriously need to open a second Indonesian hub in DPS as soon as possible. Huge market and also it is the only possible point for a non AirAsia X operation to Australia (DRW and PER).

Slightly off topic ... Just got an e-mail from AK advertising their new promo ....

"Wanna get away this mid-year but feel the airfares are too 'MaHal'? No Worries!

With AirAsia 'unMaHal' promotion a trip to Langkawi, Krabi, Phuket, Singapore starts from RM1 only!"

I went to check the website right away... It's amusing to see how they are taking the piss out of MH=Malaysian Hospitality campaign...

That type of advertising isn't allowed in Malaysia, if I'm not mistaken.

But I guess on the world wide web, it doesn't really matter.

I'd be surprised if this ad campaign makes it to the newspapers.

It is already in the papers. MAS fares are mahal, considering the inflight products they have to offer to customers.

haha yeah, I just noticed that.

I saw the Air Asia ad earlier today in the NST but I didn't realise the non-MaHal heading.

Probably they did that on purpose as to not attract too much controversy.

Maaf sih Pak Ewan. Soalnya gue lagi ada kerjaan banyak banget. Ngak bisa liburan. Ya iyalah Pak Ewan, gampang aja kok kalo mau tinggal di Jogja. Ajak aja Gusti Putri itu menikah. Langsung bisa tinggal di Kraton. Putri Indonesia ngak ketemukah?

Ngak mau main-main di Hong Kong pak? RM 49.99 aja kok.

KOTA KINABALU, 2 May 2008 – Asia’s leading and largest low cost carrier today reaffirms Kota Kinabalu’s position as a regional hub when it officially launched its direct flights to the Land Below The Wind from Jakarta and Bali, Indonesia. This will further heighten Sabah’s position as a premier ecotourism destination led by AirAsia’s aggressive expansion plans towards becoming an ASEAN airline.

The launch was officiated by Y.A.B. Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Haji Aman, Chief Minister of Sabah, with Dato’ Tony Fernandes, Group CEO of AirAsia and Captain Dharmadi, CEO of Indonesia AirAsia in attendance. The event was also graced by Y.B. Datuk Masidi Manjun, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment of Sabah and distinguished guests from the Sabah Tourism Board, and over 100 guests from the various state government offices, media, hoteliers and travel agents.

Jakarta-Kota Kinabalu’s first flight commenced on 30 March 2008 and Bali-Kota Kinabalu’s inaugural flight will take off later this afternoon with both routes being serviced three (3) times per week. Kota Kinabalu hub currently serves 12 routes to and from Kota Kinabalu including Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Johor Bahru, Kuching, Miri, Tawau, Sandakan, Shenzhen and Macau in China, Clark (Manila) in Philippines, and now Jakarta and Bali. Taking into consideration direct flights between Kuala Lumpur-Tawau and Kuala Lumpur-Sandakan, AirAsia has a total of 14 routes to and from Sabah.

Dato’ Tony Fernandes of AirAsia said, “Kota Kinabalu remains as our biggest Malaysian hub after Kuala Lumpur and we are pleased with the passenger growth to date. Our average load factor in 2007 for our Sabah routes exceeds 75% proving that low fares have made a big difference to growing traffic and raising Sabah’s tourism potential. By geographic location, air linkages play a crucial role in Sabah and it is vital for AirAsia to play its role to spearhead Sabah as the gateway for trade, investment and tourism in the region under the Sabah Development Corridor.”

“The two new routes will also draw more inbound international tourist traffic arriving from Bali and Jakarta (into Sabah), alongside from Kuala Lumpur through AirAsia X’s long haul network bringing in Australians and Chinese tourists, who are often interested to explore surrounding cities in the region and these routes will entice them to visit the state for its rich ecotourism activities.”
“We are happy to see our network growing from strength to strength. We first started flights to Kota Kinabalu from Kuala Lumpur back in December 2001 and have since carried over 8 million guests to and from Sabah. We are a strong believer of ASEAN and with no doubt, our strong route network in the region is a testament of how we can bring ASEAN together. We have so much tourism potential in this region and in this case ecotourism, not forgetting to mention economic growth that can be derived from ASEAN.” concluded Tony.

Y.A.B Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Haji Aman, Chief Minister of Sabah commented, “AirAsia’s arrival to our state has indeed opened various economic and business opportunities. We have seen some significant changes within the economic and social development context, particularly in Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan and Tawau. We are pleased to see the development that AirAsia has brought to the state which has promoted national and regional integration. AirAsia has along the way, positioned Sabah as a tourism destination and strengthened its growth commercially.”

Captain Dharmadi, CEO of Indonesia AirAsia, said, “Sabah is poised for tremendous growth and we are looking forward to build upon the successful relationship that AirAsia has with the State Government, and with these two new routes, we know we can attract more visitors to the region. We will continue to work closely together and further strengthen the relationship. On the other hand, Indonesia has so much to offer in which a cultural exchange between the two countries will indeed be a win-win situation.”
