Penang International Airport is the country’s third busiest airport in terms of passenger traffic, behind Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and Kota Kinabalu International Airport (Table 1). It has experienced rapid growth over the past six years, from having processed 3,235,423 passengers in 2009 to 5,487,751 passengers in 2013.
