KOTA KINABALU: MASwings today started operating more flights as it enters the second phase of the planned reinstatement of frequencies following the temporary suspension of flights.
It will be operating up to 59 per cent and 81 percent of its normal flight patterns on ATR72-500 and Viking DHC6 Twin Otter aircraft, respectively, the company said in a statement.
It expects to gradually get back to the normal schedule by the end of October this year.
“In support of Tourism Malaysia’s effort to boost growth in domestic tourism during this Recovery Movement Control Order period MASwings is offering “Rediscover Borneo” promo all-in one-way for RM170* on selected ATR routes which is up for grabs from now until July 31 with travel period starting now until Aug 31 this year,” it said.
MASwings reduced its flight frequencies and suspended some of its rural operations following the nationwide MCO imposed since March 18 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Since the RMCO took effect on June 10, most major travel restrictions have been lifted with conditions and exceptions imposed by respective state authorities and this allows airlines including MASwings to re-visit its operations to meet passengers’ travel requirement, it said
But since the country’s borders are still closed MASwings’ Tawau- Tarakan services are still suspended until further notice.
