MalaysiaAirportsHoldingsBerhadWith the inaugural landing of Shaheen Air, a private Pakistani carrier, at the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang in Malaysia, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) expects a boost in passenger volume.

 
MAHB Chief Operating Officer, Abd Hamid Mohd Ali, said MAHB expected passenger traffic at KLIA this year to grow by 2.5 to three per cent with potential expansion for up to 50 million passengers.

 

“With Shaheen Air, we hope to attract a significant number of Pakistani travellers. A total of 66,400 tourists arrived in Malaysia in 2015,” he told reporters after the welcoming ceremony for the maiden flight at Gate C2 Friday.

 
The Airbus A330-200 aircraft landed at KLIA at 10am, with 265 passengers, including Malaysia’s High Commissioner to Pakistan, Dr Hasrul Sani Mujtabar.

 

More than 100 passengers left Kuala Lumpur for Karachi on the return trip.

 
Besides Shaheen Air, Pakistan International Airlines and Malindo Air also offer four-time weekly and twice weekly flights on the Kuala Lumpur-Lahore route.
