Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) is the primary gateway into the province of Sabah. Regular flights depart for Singapore, Johor Bahru and Kuala Lumpur, though a roster of less frequent flights makes it possible to book travel farther abroad to places like Brunei, Hong Kong, Thailand, the Philippines and Macau.
The average return flight air ticket range from RM 300 - 450. Primary operator Malaysia Airlines sometimes could get all-in-fare as low as RM 136.

This dual-terminal airport is the second-busiest airport after Kuala Lumpur International Airport and boasts ample facilities to accommodate international travellers. The airport's only four miles from Sabah's capital city of Kota Kinabalu, so public transfer options to the city centre are quite simple.
