“With the reopening of borders two months ago, Malaysia Airports has recorded an average monthly increase of more than 50% in international traffic. The demand is there for airlines to seize the opportunity and speed up recovery. For an airport operator, every new entry of a foreign airline into the country signals positive growth for the aviation landscape. Lanmei Airlines is the second new foreign carrier that we welcomed into the country this year, adding up to a total of 43 foreign airline partners operating at our network of airports in Malaysia. We look forward to attracting more new airline partners this year while welcoming returning airlines,” said Malaysia Airports Managing Director, Dato’ Iskandar Mizal Mahmood.

We have achieved 7.10 million passenger movements for May alone. The rising traffic passenger movements were all fuelled by the opening of borders as well as the easing of travel restrictions. On top of that, it stumbled upon the Aidilfitri celebration as well as the Sabah and Sarawak Harvest Festivals.

We are excited about what’s to come next. In the meantime, do plan out your vacation, business trips, and others as more airlines are waiting to bring you to your destination.
