MAHB expects traffic to grow to 72 million by 2014; exceeds targets
Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman stated the company is anticipating further changes in the industry landscape following the liberalisation of intra-ASEAN air services agreements and airlines' route expansion (Bernama, 28-Apr-2011). He stated LCCs in the region are driving growth, with MAHB already seeing increased services to regional destinations. "Therefore, our key challenge is to ensure that we provide adequate capacity at our airports to cater the expected growth in traffic," he said. MAHB now expected passenger traffic to grow to 72 million by 2014 as its earlier target of 60 million could be achieved in 2011, he added.
