Penang International Airport

 

 
 
     
 

Penang International Airport is situated 16 km south of Georgetown, the capital city of Penang.

The airport offers extensive connectivity with major cities in South East Asia. Passengers arriving or departing from the north will enjoy a fabulous view of Georgetown, Butterworth and the Penang Bridge.

Penang is also known as "The Pearl of the Orient" and it has been and still is a popular tourist destination. It is renowned for its delightful array of street food, culture and architectural heritage.

21st century Penang remains a thriving commercial (and now industrial) centre with a relatively high standard of living.

With the combined attractions of tourism and business, Penang International Airport is consistently being upgraded to cater to the increasing traffic demand.

A new cargo centre was opened for operations in 2000 with a capacity to handle 360,000 tonnes of cargo.
