Kota Kinabalu International Airport is located approximately 8 km from the city of Kota Kinabalu, the state capital of Sabah, and it is the main gateway into the state of Sabah and into Borneo.

This airport first began as a military airfield built by the Japanese occupying forces during World-War II. Back then, it was also known as the Jesselton Airfield.
Post independence in 1957, the airport has gone through various phases of upgrade and today, it is the second busiest airport in Malaysia after KL International Airport (KLIA). In 2006, approximately 2 million tourists visited Sabah through this airport, making it one of Malaysia s fastest growing regional international airports.

The airport offers five aerobridges plus three other parking stands and is equipped to handle large aircrafts such as the Boeing 747.
