KLIA maintains 3rd spot worldwide
KUALA LUMPUR: Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) has maintained its third spot in the Top 10 Airports Worldwide category of the Smart Travel Asia 2013 Best in Travel Poll.
According to the poll, KLIA continues to be one of the travellers' favourite airports, sharing the position with South Korea's Incheon International Airport.
Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) senior general manager of operations services Datuk Azmi Murad said the airport operator is pleased to be recognised as one of the favourite hubs in the world.
"MAHB places great emphasis on continuously enhancing customer experience at all our airports, particularly KLIA through improving our service and facilities standard.
"We strongly believe the emergence of klia2 next year as the world's first purpose-built terminal dedicated for low-cost airlines will significantly improve the service quality to passengers and further strengthen KLIA's status as one of the best airports worldwide," he said in a statement.
About 70 per cent of the respondents were based in Asia (largely Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, India, China, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines and the Middle East) which indicates KLIA's strong presence in this sector.
Smart Travel Asia is the region's only dedicated online travel magazine with over one million readers worldwide.
MAHB manages and operates 39 airports in Malaysia, including KLIA.
