Malaysia airports pictures

Sorry but I don`t have any pics. I want especially to have a look at the interior designs of the new Alor Setar terminal. Is there anyone who dares to share ?

This terminal will be another white elephant. There is no demand to justify that.

Look at Langkawi. Langkawi receives a hell lot more international and domestic visitors compared to Alor Setar but it's airport traffic is still below 800000 , a figure that is lower than the secondary airports in Sarawak such as Miri and Bintulu. The new terminal in Langkawi is designed to handle a lot more passengers than that so it is in effect under utilized and can be labelled a white elephant. The gov tried very hard to lobby international flights to Langkawi but MAS cant sustain it's flights to Japan , HKG and London and cancelled them. The only international route out of Langkawi now is Singapore. If Langkawi Airport fails to meet expectations, what chances do Alor Setar have? Furthermore, Langkawi and Alor Setar are just too close to each other, Kedah does not have the population or purchasing power to sustain two international airports let alone one

What Globocentric said is right........the Northern region can only support a single hub because it really doesn't have that many population to begin with. Langkawi's airport is more like a 'resort/holiday destination airport' like the airports of Canary Island or Bali.

PEN make sense to be the northern hub due to is population density and economic influence in the region. Alor Setar is just stuck in between as both Langkawi and PEN is just too close

I think Ipoh is too near to KLIA... so it makes no sense too...

Ya, judging from connectivity, I think PEN make more sense to turn into northen hub. See... more international flight and it serves as the cargo centre too.

How many international flight that Langkawi has? In PEN, you have MAS, SIA, KoreanAir, Cathay Pacific, Jatayu, Lion Air, Garuda, China Southern, China Airlines and even Air Asia sister companies, Thai Air Asia and Indonesian Air Asia fly there...

Alor Setar potential to be a northern hub is not only inhibited by small population, it is also one of the poorest cities in malaysia in terms of per capita income.I think Alor Setar will be the second poorest after Kangar in the west coast of peninsular malaysia. Why built an airport when most of the locals cant afford air travel? Does Alor Setar have any attractions for tourists?No. How can an airport be viable when there are not enough visitors to the city. I think most of the users of Alor Setar will be the locals and their numbers are constrained by income levels. Johor Bahru have a much higher per capita income but it's airport is still struggling. Therefore, any decision to turn Alor Setar into a northern hub will be a political one, not a commercial one. Penang has been plauged by enough political correctness, i dont wish to see any more of that

The Kuala Terengganu airport is quite deserted with the exception of a few tourists coming in for the islands off terengganu. However, i've been told that the Kota Bahru airport is actually nearer to the Kuala Besut jetty so most tourists are encouraged to use the Kota Bahru airport instead of KT and the expansion of the airport might just be another white elephant. They should upgrade the airport instead.
