Airlines will fly full capacity to Kuching in bid to reduce ticket prices

Airlines flying into Kuching will be allowed to start flying at full capacity starting 10 June 2020 as the government sought to reduce fare prices for travel between Kuching and other destinations.

According to Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Embas, all airlines flying to Sarawak will be exempted of the social distancing requirement in accordance to the announcement made by the transport ministry recently.

The exemption will apply to all scheduled and non scheduled flights, general aviation, private jet operations and helicopters.

“Following the Ministry of Transport’s announcement, social distancing within all scheduled and non scheduled flights, general aviation, private jet operations and helicopters is exempted” said Uggah during the press briefing today.

“This is very much in response to the complain that when social distancing is applied in the aircraft, it will lead to only 66.6% load, hence shooting up the price.

“That is why the government through the Ministry of Transport, had allowed airlines to fly full load through the Kuching – Kuala Lumpur (KL), Kuala Lumpur route” he elaborated further.

Prior to this, flights for the Kuching – KL route have ballooned to over RM1,000 one way, a far cry from the usual RM100 – RM300 it usually enjoys.
