Celebrating Malaysia’s multi-cultural heritage this Chinese New Year with festivities and activities at Malaysia airports

In the spirit of Chinese New Year this January 2020, Malaysia Airports has launched a festive campaign where visitors and passengers at the KLIA Main Terminal of KL International Airport can join in the fun with dragon and lion dances, drum performances, oranges, lou sang, and much joy, prosperity and happiness.

On 17 January 2020, Malaysia Airports Acting Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh, led senior management staff in the traditional tossing of the lou sang - a dish of shredded vegetables and fish - to symbolise prosperity and success for the year, before distributing special festive goodies and mandarin oranges to visitors to passengers. Meanwhile, an award-winning dragon and lion dance performance entertained those lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time during the launch.


‘Lou Sang’ - a trademark tradition when it comes to the Chinese New Year celebration in Malaysia.

The campaign, inspired by a “Floating Garden” theme, centres around the koi fish to symbolise luck and prosperity. The design and decoration incorporates both traditional and modern elements, with an Augmented Reality feature introduced this year in the shape of a virtual greeting card where visitors can snap a selfie with the God of Prosperity and send it to loved ones.

Passengers travelling through both terminals, KLIA Main and klia2 will be able to experience exciting festive activities and performances lined up until 9 February 2020.

At the same time, an ongoing “Count, Share, and Win” contest is still running throughout the duration of the campaign.
