Short Take-Off and Landing Airports (STOL)

Malaysia's dense and hilly terrain especially in the states of Sabah and Sarawak,
often make the outlying areas in accessible by road.  

The STOL ports were built to accommodate the needs of passengers and
travelers in these remote areas and provide them with a lifeline to other neighboring towns

Collectively, Malaysia's STOL ports handled nearly 435,000 passengers in 2005
and 1.28 million tonnes of cargo and mail were also carried to and from the
STOL ports.
