KOTA KINABALU: The tourism players have been urged to play their part to maintain the cleanliness of the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) as more tourists are set to come here.

The Sabah Association of Tour and Travel Agents chairman Dato’ Seri Winston Liaw also urged the Malaysia Airports to install more CCTV cameras around the airport to keep an eye on those who discarded rubbish indiscriminately.

“Since the airport is the first entry point to the state, we must tidy up because the visitors’ impression on us is reflected in our cleanliness,” said Liaw during a courtesy call on City Hall Mayor Datuk Yeo Boon Hai at his downtown office here yesterday.

We have so many beautiful attractions so we must also have the responsibility to keep our place clean and make sure the visitors have a pleasant stay and enjoy their holiday here, said Liaw.

“Although we rely on Kota Kinabalu City Hall (KKCH) to clean up the rubbish everyday but we cannot expect them to be on the spot to pick-up the rubbish immediately.

“So the industry players should also play their part to help the airport and the city to maintain the cleanliness for the benefits of the tourism sector and the public,” called Liaw.

He said recently there was some rubbish being thrown near the arrival hall of the airport and it was confirmed the act was done by a tour bus driver after they reviewed the CCTV recording.

Liaw also called on the Api-Api Centre’s management to put up more bins outside the banks and offices for the convenient of the public to throw their rubbish and cigarette butts.

“There are a lot of cigarette butts being littered outside my office (Airworld Travel) recently which sent out unbearable smell.

“I have complained the matter to the management but after waited for 30 minutes nobody turn up, so I decided to clean it up the trash myself,” shares Liaw.

He also concurred with the Mayor that cleanliness is the responsibility of everybody because KKCH cannot look after everybody.
