The flight is always operated by a DASH 7 (!!) and the approach into TOD is very thrilling (one of the most dangerous airports in the world!). A unique flight- on an unique a/c, enjoy!
Not the most dangerous approach - just a bit "unusual".

Debonair! WOW! I didn't realize that this was a possible flight! This is an amazing suggestion! I used to work on the DHC7! Hope their aircraft are in good condition!
No big deal ..
I did it as well ! Even without notifying Berjaya Air´s HQ
it was no problem - despite just a 30 mins transfer.
I just let the check-in agent at SZB
know that I am continuing to SIN
and let her send a message to TOD
It´s the same aircraft that flies SZB
that continues TOD
I was "fortunate" to fly to XSP
(Singapore-Seletar) then but Berjaya has moved to SIN
a while ago.
Berjaya´s DH7 are certainly showing their age now but are in reasonable condition.
And with this routing you are guaranteed a DH7 as there´s no equipment change possible (short runway and difficult approach at TOD
Berjaya has also ATR72-500´s but they cannot fly to/from TOD
Just a reminder: be sure you check the free baggage allowance for flights into/out of TOD
(10kgs IIRC - anything above will be charged extra ...)
