Malaysia Airports is ready for a safe and seamless border reopening
After two years of border closure from March 2020, airports across Malaysia are ready to ensure a safe and seamless travelling experience for all its users on their journey in and out of the country.
With borders reopening on 1 April 2022, Malaysia Airports is committed to ensuring that health protocols and procedures at the airports are simplified for the passengers’ convenience.
Managing Director Dato’ Iskandar Mizal Mahmood reiterated the Group’s commitment to making sure that standards at the airport are consistently high: “For the past several weeks, we have held daily engagements with various airport stakeholders to ensure that airport operations run like clockwork.
“No detail is too small for our attention. Not only do we look at all aspects of the passenger journey, but we are also ensuring compliance to all aviation regulatory matters.”
For passengers’ convenience, among the improvements made included the shortening of the arrival documentation process by having passengers complete them on the MySejahtera app before departing from their country of origin.
Moreover, private health screening facilities are readily available at international airports with pre-booking services online.
Along with the Aerotrain services, shuttle buses are also available to carry passengers to and from Satellite Building as the Aerotrain will only be in operation during peak periods of international flight movements.
Meanwhile, Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) CEO Datuk Capt Chester Voo said CAAM is satisfied with the level of compliance with regulations and the new norms as it encourages that the aviation industry is poised for a safe and secure start.
“CAAM would like to applaud Malaysia Airports and airline operators for taking this compliance seriously in the interest of public safety.”
