Jogyakarta and Sabah can combine their almost similar eco-tourism products and promote them as one tourism package.

Head of Tourism Department of Yogyakarta, Tazbir Abdullah, said Jogyakarta has volcanoes and Sabah has ‘sleeping’ Mount Kinabalu.

“We can package them for tourists keen to visit mountains. Also, we can promote the beaches,” he told journalists from Sabah here Thursday.

He hoped to put forward the proposal at international tourism forums, especially between Indonesia and Malaysia.

Tazbir said although it was difficult to introduce direct flights between Jogyakarta and Kota Kinablu, there were some airliners who were interested.

“We can discuss with them, there are no problems.

“Currently, the problem is with Adisucipto international airport. It might not be able to handle the increase in flights as the runway is small,” he said.

The airport handles direct flights from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
