Airport to see growth in passenger traffic

Penang International Airport is expecting to see passenger traffic grow by four to five per cent in 2012, due to strong tourism interest domestically and abroad. The first nine months of the year saw a five per cent growth, or 3.5 million passengers, up from last year’s 3.3 million.
