Labuan folks go to mainland for weekend

LABUAN:  Packed ferry and boat terminals, busy roads and the crowded Labuan Airport mark the beginning of the New Year getaway as thousands of Labuan folks and Labuan-based employees gear up to leave the island for the mainland this week.

Despite the weaker ringgit as against the US dollar and other currencies, the exodus is still significant as the people take advantage of the double holiday seasons of Christmas and New year, coupled with the school break.

During the Christmas period until Dec 31, more than 10,000 people are expected to leave the duty-free-island, while at least 5,000 will depart via the Labuan Airport.

Ferry operators, Labuan Ferry Corporation Sdn Bhd, Labuan Mainland Link Sdn Bhd and Juta Bonus Sdn Bhd have urged holidaymakers to plan ahead as they prepare for the busiest time of the year.- BERNAMA
