Alas, this is the last installment of this series. But from time to time, it might be possible to update with new information or recently acquired items.
The likely was this LTA cancellation came into use with this new terminal or possibly much earlier.
On this blog, airport cancellations for Brunei were shown previously. You can see them by clicking here.
I shall be having a couple of weeks' break from this blog before coming back with some more tasty morsels.

Lapangan Terbang means airport in the Malay language.
From the dates in this collection, it would seem that this Lapangan Terbang K.K. cancellation was in use for many years. From covers which would be shown later on, the range of dates of my items is between 4-8-1974 and 19-10-1993. Unless I am missing a postmark in between, it was likely that it was used until 2008 when the LTA (Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa) was introduced with the opening of the international airport.

This is a 4 part series which include various airport cancellations which I bought and rescued from a stock book which was once part of the most comprehensive collection of North Borneo stamps and postal history ever assembled. I have also included items which were previously seen on these pages.
