Malaysia's central location in the Asia Pacific region
makes her an ideal gateway to Asia. Air cargo facilities are well-developed in the five international
airports - the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Penang International Airport and Langkawi
International Airport in Peninsular Malaysia, Kota Kinabalu International Airport in Sabah, and Kuching
International Airport in Sarawak.
Malaysia's biggest airport, the KLIA, located 50 kilometres south of Malaysia's federal capital of Kuala
Lumpur, has an initial capacity of 25 million passengers and 650,000 tonnes of cargo per year. Cargo import
and export procedures are fully automated at the KLIA to cut down delivery time. Within a short span of two
years since its opening, the KLIA was ranked number one for overall business passenger satisfaction* in an
International Air Transport Association (AITA) survey.
* In the 15 to 25 million passengers per annum category.
