PUTRAJAYA: The Kota Kinabalu International Airport is set to be an air travel hub connecting Asean and China following a government agreement to sign and rectify Protocol 2 - Implementation of Limited Fifth Freedom under Asean-China Air Transport Agreement.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the rectification enabled KKIA to be connected to nine secondary points within Asean and 28 secondary points in China for cargo and passengers services.
"This strategic decision will surely bring tremendous economic, trade and tourism boost to Sabah.
"We can expect a positive growth and spillover effect from tourist arrival in Sabah," he said in a statement on Tuesday.
Kong said the agreement would be signed in Bali at the end of this month.
