In a report at The Star online on Thursday 12th August state “KLIA climbs world’s top 100 airports list for 2021”.
The Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) has climbed up the global airport ranking amid the pandemic, coming in at 55th place on the annual Skytrax World’s Top 100 Airports list.
This is a significant improvement for the country’s premiere gateway after falling to its lowest position at 63rd place last year.
The highest ranking KLIA achieved was in 2001, when it took the second spot on the list. It has since dropped out of the top 10 group on the list from 2013, when it fell to 14th place.
The list, however, omitted the award for the World’s Best Low-Cost Airline Terminal this year. KLIA2 managed to stay in the top 10 last year, coming in at number six.
