Langkawi Development Authority Partnering with Sarawak
The Langkawi Development Authority is creating collaborative tour packages with Sarawak and Sabah to lure more tourists, especially from Europe.
The states have complementary tourism strengths, with Sarawak’s Mulu and Niah National Parks being able to complement Langkawi’s island tourism concept, Lada Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Azizan Noordin said.
Accessibility to these tourism attractions has been favourable with the launch of the AirAsia direct flight between Kuching and Langkawi and has recorded a high load factor since it was inaugurated in August.
Direct flights into Langkawi from China as well as future plans for flights from Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam and India to Langkawi will also enable tourists from those countries to extend their holiday to Sarawak.
