MIRI: Miri wants more international direct flights connecting it to major cities in Asia.
Its mayor Adam Yii Siew Sang said the cities that Miri was keen to have air connectivity with were Chengdu and Chongqing in China, Seoul and Pusan in South Korea, Tokyo and Osaka in Japan, Taipei in Taiwan and Sydney and Melbourne in Australia.
“Other international destinations that need air connectivity with Miri include Pontianak in Kalimantan for its medical and educational potentials,” he said in a statement.
Yii said currently, the lack of air connectivity for Miri was among the obstacles it faced in boosting its tourism industry and that the proposed Sarawak-owned airline by the state government could be the ideal solution.
According to its website, Miri International Airport is the third busiest airport in Malaysia in aircraft movements, serving over 1.5 million passengers per year. It is also a major hub for MASWings and AirAsia.
The airport is currently in the midst of an upgrading project which will be completed by the end of the year.
Once completed, the airport would be able to boast better facilities and cater for three million passengers per year.
