Lawas might see better air connectivity soon as a proposal for a larger airport is under consideration under the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP).

A suitable location had been identified for the new airport.

The proposl was revealed by Second Minister of Resource Planning and Environment Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hassan over Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) yesterday.

The proposed new airport is said to be able to accommodate an ATR plane, as the current one can only accommodate the Fokker.
