MASwings sets ceiling price for Kota Kinabalu-Labuan flight fare at RM137

KUALA LUMPUR: The government, through subsidies provided to MASwings for the Rural Air Services (RAS) route, has set a maximum fare of RM137 for flights between Kota Kinabalu and Labuan.

Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook said this decision was one of the measures taken to reduce flight costs to and from Labuan, in addition to existing initiatives such as FlySiswa.

"These subsidies are intended to offset MASwings' operational losses in providing rural air services as part of Public Service Obligations, rather than directly influencing fare prices," he said during question and answer session in the Dewan Negara on Tuesday (March 19).

He said this in reply to Senator Tan Sri Anifah Aman's inquiry about the measures to reduce flight costs to and from Labuan. - Bernama
