ABOUT MALAYSIAN AIRPORTS
Although Malaysia is a relatively small country, it has a well developed air transportation network. Almost every major city in Malaysia is serviced by an airport, while smaller airports located in rural areas of Borneo serve as primary connections to the rest of the world.
Malaysia's airports are managed by Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad, the country's designated airport operator. The company operates a total of 5 international airports, 15 domestic airports and 18 other smaller airports, known as Short Take-Off and Landing (STOL) airports. These airports handle commercial passengers from over 110 international and 20 domestic destinations daily. Malaysia's biggest airport is undeniably the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, or KLIA, which serves as the main hub for air travel in Malaysia. KLIA also includes a Low Cost Carrier Terminal, built specifically for budget airlines. This terminal, known as LCCT, is fast gaining popularity among air travellers as the budget air travel market steadily grows within the region.
