On March 5, I wrote a column in The Sun Daily asking that the government consider lowering the price of air fare between Peninsular and Borneo.
The lack of controls in fares which made flights to Sabah and Sarawak sometimes higher than flights overseas, was brought to my attention by a friend on Facebook.
Today, it was reported that the government will be setting a ceiling price for domestic flights, which means the fares back home for those working in the Peninsular while their families are across the South China Sea, will be controlled.
With this policy in mind, I’m really glad that hopefully this means that Malaysians can travel cheaper be it for holidays, business, or even the rush home to vote.
And I’m glad that perhaps someone is reading and drafting what needs to happen, even if it is from a grouchy 35-year-old raconteur.
