Approximate location

A proposed commercial development by MFMA Development Sdn. Bhd. at Bayan Lepas. Located near Penang International Airport, next to the existing outdoor car parking area.  MFMA Development Sdn.

    Time to move the airport off the island. Encourage FTZ company to move to Batu Kawan. Flip the airport and FTZ area into tourism attraction.

    Halo dumbo, you think private development no need to go through government approval ah, furthermore, this MFMA Development is 30% owned by Malaysia Airports (a government body who should be focusing on expanding the current airport). Use your brain before commenting, no wonder name also cheebye…bwahahaha

    As long as the new Mitsui Mall is connecting the PIA, preserving space for LRT/Tram/BRT/MRT/LOL station, collaborate with the public transport alignment and pedestrian facilities. Then no problem for this Mall la~ If this mall can create more value for PIA, then it will encouraging this PIA expansion project to be much more bigger and advance~

    At the Penang international airport. It’s common to drive into the present open air car park and need to squeeze into a vacant lot if ones is lucky. Or need to wait and look around to see if any car is going out..it’s a nightmare if it’s a weekend or public holidays…

    PIA really need a new international attraction that can cater for all. New multi-storey carparks can really ease the parking shortage and congestion.
    PIA needs to be revamped asap too. I feel ashamed when I went to PIA washroom which was dark, gloomy and feels like my old primary school washroom.

    We need a new international airport in the northern region. PIA will not cut it anymore.
    Building one in Kulim can help solve the congestion issue at PIA, help stimulate growth in the northern region, and eleviate traffic issue in Penang.
    I know that it will be a bitter pill to swallow, but one must think of the future and just do it.

    It’s not a bitter pill, it’s just dumb. There’s no need to build a brand new airport, an extension will be sufficient. The traffic is mostly budget airline, just look into that. That’s the way to maximise return on investment.

    You brought up a good point on the current traffic for PIA is currently comes from budget airline. We can maintain PIA as is and us it as a low cost hub for the northern region.
    Use Kulim as a new hub for international airport. In that way, we inadvertently will expand the economical coverage for the northern region, so that it will not be centralized only on Penang Island. Let other areas to be modernized, so that more people can share the wealth.
