Complaints of Cancellation of FAX Flights in Sabah

KOTA KINABALU: The state tourism ministry has been asked to discuss with Transport Ministry officials over public complaints on frequent cancellations and delays of flights between Kota Kinabalu and the east coast towns in Sabah.

"I have asked them to talk to those concern and find out ways to overcome the problems faced by air travellers," he said on Sunday after attending a Chinese New Year open house organised by the Liberal Democratic Party.

He was commenting on LDP Karamunting division chief Peter Pang En Yin who called on the Transport Ministry to improve flight schedules between the city and east coast towns of Tawau, Sandakan and Lahad Datu.

He said Fly Asian Express should be more responsive to the numerous complaints over sudden flight cancellations and delays as this was causing inconvenience to air travellers.

"I hope that they make sure they improve the services," Musa said, adding that Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Chong Kah Kiat, who is state Tourism, Culture amd Environment Minister had been directed to discuss this with the relevant authorities.

Chong, who is former LDP president, told reporters that they brought up the matter with Transport Ministry officials together with other airlines officials in Miri last month.

"They (FaX) had told us that they took note of the problem," he said without indicating whether a solution was forthcoming.

Pang said that the persistent problem had recently forced some family members to miss the recent Chinese New Year eve family dinner apart from forking out more money for accommodations before reaching their respective destinations.
