Datuk Seri Hj Mohd Ali Mohd Rustam, who launched the “Visit Melaka Tourist Promotion” during the 13th Sukan Malaysia (Sukma) at the Centrepoint Hotel yesterday, said that he will be extending a formal invitation to Royal Brunei Airlines (RBA).

Dato’ Zulkifli Mohamad, general manager at the Tourism Promotion Division of Melaka’s Chief Minister Department, said that he had held preliminary talks with top officials from the Ministry of Communications and has met with Hj Omar Ali Hj Mohd Daud from Royal Brunei Airlines.

“We were unable to meet with the Ministry of Communications yesterday as they had a tight schedule, so we are scheduled to meet today with officials from the ministry,” he said when asked whether any contact has been made with RBA.

Datuk Seri Hj Mohd Ali added that if Melaka gets a Boeing 737 once a week, that would translate to about 100 tourists from Bruneians.
