MASwings, Malaysia 's first commuter airline was officially launched on 1 October 2007. It caters to the air travel needs of Sarawak and Sabah's travelling population by providing affordable fares, convenient schedule and connections within the two states in the Malaysian Borneo.
Being a subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines, MASwings takes advantage of its link with Malaysia's national carrier to provide Sabah and Sarawak with greater connectivity to the global network already serviced by Malaysia Airlines.
The amount of checked baggage that you can take with you free of charge is determined
according to either the number of pieces or the weight. The ‘allow’ box on your paper
ticket indicates which of these concepts apply to your baggage allowance. On your e-ticket,
this is indicated in the ‘baggage’ box.
The MASwings Online Booking Facility enables you to book and purchase ticket(s)
on a MASwings flight directly, via the Internet.
All you need is a printer.
