Pushing other big names in the aviation industry, AirAsia is again the Asia & World’s Best Low Cost Airline for 7th consecutive year. We are happy to see that AirAsia is servicing the route from Kota Kinabalu and Kuala Lumpur. For our recent trip from Kota Kinabalu to Sandakan, we chose to depart on the earliest AirAsia flight which was at 0700 HRS. The reason, hoping to see that majestic Mount Kinabalu from inside the plane. Being a budget airline, the airline is about a straight forward service, you get what you paid for, it’s a no frills airline but it gets you to the destination. Traveling to Sandakan from Kota Kinabalu is now made easier by AirAsia. There are several flights to choose from, be it early morning, mid day or early evening. This entry is meant as a guide for future travelers to Sandakan, especially for the first timers.
