Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri, shared that the first flight carrying 159 passengers from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) arrived safely at 10.30am at Langkawi International Airport and that a total of 18 flights are scheduled to arrive throughout the day (Thursday) with a total of 2,200 passengers.

“About 1,000 more tourists will enter the island via the ferry transport service (RORO) from the Kuala Perlis Terminal,” he said as he greeted and welcomed the first flight that arrived in Langkawi.

Also present was Kedah Menteri Besar, Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor, who shared that his party is targeting 30,000 tourists to arrive in Langkawi for the first two weeks of the pilot project.

“Meanwhile, for the period until December, we expect tourist arrivals to reach 200,000 people,”

“The first day of the launch is an important day to be used as a benchmark by tourists to determine the next days to come,” he said.

One of the tourists, 50-year-old Rosmazaini Mohd Zain, said that she and her family feel lucky to be among the first to arrive in Langkawi.

“I had booked tickets to Langkawi for a very long time and today, I was able to fly here for the Malaysia Day celebrations. I will be staying here for four days with other family members,”

“The feeling of excitement is there but we will remain vigilant because we are still exposed to Covid-19 despite having completed two doses. Alhamdulillah, our family’s Covid-19 detection tests went smoothly despite receiving last minute notice on the need to undergo the tests,” she said, adding that the authorities were providing free test kits today.
