Photo above : The old Lawas Airport
The construction of the new airport for
Lawas in Limbang division under 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP) will boost
the economic, social and tourism potentials of Sarawak and Sabah.
The existing old Lawas airport was too small and the runway was always hit by floods during the rainy season forcing it to be closed, sometimes up to one week.
The airport can only accommodate the Twin Otter aircraft and with the new airport bigger aircraft can operate in Lawas
Currently only the 17-seater Twin Otter aircraft operated by Maswings provide the Rural Air Service (RAS) to Lawas.
Lawas had huge potentials in the tourism industry but the limited flights there made this northern Sarawak region quite difficult to promote as a tourism destination.
Lawas shared its border with Sipitang Sabah, many areas of joint cooperation between the two states could be explored further.
