Malaysia Airlines (MAS) will start a four times a week flight from Miri to Hong Kong with a transit in Kota Kinabalu starting May 3, Sarawak Assistant Infrastructure Development and Communication Minister Lee Kim Shin said
He said the new route would at least serve as a first step for Miri to become a popular tourist destination, especially for visitors from Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan and the Philippines.
He said MAS would also offer promotional fares for the new route and local tourism players were expected to carry out tourism product promotion in Hong Kong
