The response from both Indonesian and Malaysian customers had been very encouraging.

Bigger aircraft services will also provided to Balikpapan, South Sulawesi and Menado in Indonesia as well as Davao and Zamboanga in the south of the Philippines.

MASwings air service to areas in Kalimantan provided a boost to economic development in that area and Malaysia as well as the Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-the Philippines-East Asean Growth Area(BIMP-EAGA).

Following the formation of the BIMP-EAGA in 1994, MASwings was the first company to answer the call for member nations to provide an service network to meet the groupings objective of ensuring regional prosperity.

Tarakan offered much economic potential which could be explored by Malaysian entrepreneurs, including those from the oil and gas industry and petroleum, fisheries, the batik industry as well as nature tourism.

 Indonesia would continue to extend full support to MASwings' service which would bring the both the people of Tarakan and Tawau who shared historic links
