FESTIVE vibes take flight at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) thanks to a giant golden dragon sculpture that greets travellers.

Erected in conjunction with Chinese New Year, the sculpture stands roughly 3.6m tall, is 7.6m long and 1.2m wide.

It is part of an exhibition which includes traditional attire and decorative items, open to the public at KLIA departure hall round the clock until Feb 24.

Malaysia Airports Commercial Services senior general manager Hani Ezra Hussin said the exhibit was meant to showcase Malaysia’s unity.

“Despite our diverse cultures and beliefs, this festivity represents a shared experience among Malaysians.

“We want to play a role in promoting that,” she said during the launch.

Malaysia Book of Records chief marketing officer Jwan Yeow Hooi later presented Hani with a certificate for the biggest golden dragon sculpture.

During the event, several lucky visitors also received mandarin oranges from airport staff.

Travellers and guests were also entertained with cultural shows, including a drum performance by Taylor’s International School Kuala Lumpur.

There was also a dragon dance by Malaysia Gao Feng Lion and Dragon Dance Athletic Association.

A duty-free bazaar is ongoing in KLIA and KLIA2 until Feb 18.

Visitors can also look forward to cultural activities, including lion dance and lantern workshops, which will also take place at Langkawi, Penang, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu international airports.
