At the moment, there's only one flight from Kuching to Pontianak which is operated by MASwings. As we had to catch our connecting flight from Pontianak to Jakarta, we bought a one way ticket from Kuching to Pontianak cost MYR 231 (nett) per person, departing early in the morning.
When I arrived at Kuching International Airport, I was amazed by how modern it is. A great view of a mountain from where we stepped out from the airport shuttle van of Lime Tree Hotel greeted us.

We checked-in at MASwings check-in machine, one officer helped us because two of my friends last name is the same with their first name, so we couldn't do it by ourselves.

The airport is huge and really modern, I didn't expect that Kuching would have such a nice airport.

It was my first journey using a small aircraft. The seats setting is two on left and right side, with only a small cabin that I had to put my backpack underneath. We got a free milk or juice from the stewardess during the flight.
|I must say it's a well maintained aircraft|

It was a nice and short journey and it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be.
