Malaysia Airport

Introduction of Malaysia Airports

Malaysia Airports manages and operates 39 airports in Malaysia: 5 international, 16 domestic and 18 Short Take-Off and Landing Ports (STOL Ports). It also has operations in India and Turkey. On November 30, 1999, Malaysia Airports became the first airport company to be listed in Asia.

KL International Airport (KLIA), its flagship airport was thrice voted as the Best Airport (15-25 million passengers per annum) in the 2005 AETRA awards, 2006 ACI-ASQ awards and 2007 ACI-ASQ awards while the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT-KLIA) was named CAPA Low Cost Airport of the Year at the CAPA Aviation Awards for Excellence 2006. Other notable awards won by KLIA includes the Best Airport Staff in Southeast Asia (2010), Best Immigration Service Worldwide (2010, 2011 and 2013) and Best Airport Staff in Asia (2012) in the Skytrax World Airport Awards. Most recently, KLIA was voted 2nd Airport (category 40-50 mppa) in the Skytrax World Airport Awards 2014.

KLIA has also taken a big stride in the realisation of becoming a global integrated hub by launching the Next Generation Hub concept, an initiative aiming to position the ultra-modern airport as a complete hub for all. In 2013, ACI ranked KLIA as the world’s 20th busiest airport based on overall passenger movements and the world’s 11th busiest for international passenger movements. The encouraging passenger movements bodes well for the Next Generation Hub concept as well as for the development of KLIA Aeropolis.

Malaysia Airports has also received numerous awards that acknowledged its commitment in service, community engagement, corporate responsibility and organisational excellence.
