Malaysia Airlines is pleased to announce the re-introduction of its direct flights between Sandakan and Kuala Lumpur in recognition of existing and growing demand for premium direct full service connectivity between Sabah’s second largest city and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport’s (KLIA) main terminal.

In addition, the re-introduction of direct flights to and from Sandakan will allow for more international travel via KLIA to meet the growing network demand for premium connectivity to and from Sandakan with Malaysia Airlines’ international destinations.

International visitors interested in Sabah’s unique wildlife would thus have a more direct access to sites in Sandakan such as the world’s largest Orang Utan sanctuary at Sepilok, pygmy elephants and proboscis monkey at the Kinabatangan river and Turtle Island.

Malaysia Airlines would provide a frequency of 11 times weekly direct flights between KLIA Main Terminal and Sandakan, starting from 18 February 2012.
