Sabah is now more accessible to South Koreans, thanks to Air Busan making its way to Malaysia.
Flying from the city of Daegu, Air Busan made its first ever touch-down in Malaysia, at Kota Kinabalu International Airport, on May 15, 2019. The new Daegu flight will be flying four times weekly: every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
The carrier also commenced its second connection from Busan to Kota Kinabalu starting May 22, 2019 on a daily basis.
“Thank you to Air Busan for this good news. New airlines flying from a new destination is part of our on-going efforts to make Sabah easily accessible from international destinations,” said YB Datuk Christina Liew, Sabah Deputy Chief Minister and Minister of Tourism, Culture, and Environment.
With the additional connectivity, Sabah will now receive a total of 48 weekly direct flights from South Korea.
