BOOSTING AIR LINKS FIRST STEP TO REIMAGING KUCHING PDF Print E-mail

KUCHING, Sunday – The reimaging of Kuching as a destination was part of the 5 Year Tourism Industry Transformation Program which began in 2010 with one thought in mind – to improve the visitor experience in a very niche market that is to position Sarawak as a home of adventure with elements of culture and nature.  Sarawak, which is situated in the third largest island in the world, makes accessibility a major challenge but we have to make it easy for travelers to get here.  The key challenge is to improve air-connectivity so that visitors are able to experience the well kept secrets of Borneo.

The first phase to enhance the visitor experience was to work with our airline partners operating through hub airports such as KLIA and Changi Airport by increasing air connectivity through these airports. The very least was to make the journey more comfortable through reducing transit and waiting time to connect to not only Kuching airport in Sarawak but also to airports such as Sibu, Miri and Bintulu.
