The Francisco Bangoy International Airport here will soon add additional foreign flights to Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia, the city's investment promotion officer said over the weekend. "Very soon, we will have direct air linkage straight to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia," Jason C. Magnaye, officer in charge of the Davao City Investment Promotion Center (DCIPC), told some 38 CEOs of different Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) companies Friday at a hotel here.

Magnaye did not elaborate which airline is expanding its services in Davao's airport but it was reported that a Malaysian airline has planned to offer flights from Kota Kinabalu to this city via Zamboanga.

Currently, Silk Air is the lone foreign airline that flies direct to Singapore four times a week.

It was reported that Malaysia Airlines wholly-owned subsidiary MASwings, planned to launch in 2009 to expand services to neighboring foreign cities including Zamboanga and Davao.
