MAHB records 7.8 million passengers

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd’s (MAHB) passenger movements for its network of airports stood at 7.8 million in July 2022, equivalent to 62.2% of its pre-pandemic levels.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia yesterday, it said Malaysia recorded 4.8 million passenger movements, with the international sector recording a new high of 1.6 million since the pandemic began, and the domestic sector remained above three million.

“International passenger movements exceeded the three million-mark for the first time in July at 3.1 million passengers, mainly driven by the summer holidays period and Hajj season, as well as the resumption of airline connectivity and routes,” the airport operator said.

It added that the Kota Kinabalu International Airport in Sabah also welcomed the recommencement of Air Busan flights from Busan, South Korea, with three flights per week, AirAsia’s daily flights to Singapore and three flights a week to Don Mueang, Thailand. — Bernama
