KUCHING: The state government through Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports are making efforts to increase flight connectivity between Singapore and Sarawak in the near future.

This was announced by Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports, Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah who said that negotiations are underway in arranging for more flight connectivity to Kuching and other cities in the state including those from Singapore.

He said that the matter regarding increasing flight connectivity between Singapore and Sarawak was mentioned by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg during the latter’s visit to Singapore to officially launch the Sarawak Trade and Tourism Office Singapore (Statos) on August 10.

The minister said that he was heartened as the efforts made to increase flights connectivity with Singapore are progressing well, while at the same time the state government is committed to broaden flights connectivity with other countries.

“Its not just Singapore that we are looking at but there will be more flights coming in from Brunei, mainland China and maybe Jakarta as well. We will announce it when there are further developments,” he said, adding that the state government is currently negotiating with several airlines.

Datuk Abdul Karim also assured the people that that such good news would be shared immediately once the contracts with airlines companies to increase flights connectivity to the state are signed.
