Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd’s (MAHB) newly launched observation deck, Anjung Malaysia will create a lasting impression and unique experience to travellers, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

“The ministry is highly supportive for all the efforts to elevate the image of our airports. I am very pleased to see that MAHB has put equal emphasis on both the transportation and hospitality perspectives, signifying an even higher level of service and attention that visitors’ needs and wants,” Liow said in a statement after launching Anjung Malaysia yesterday.

“The transport sector can play a role in contributing to our national tourism target. Apart from the quality of our physical infrastructure, we must strive to provide a differentiating factor and unique experience to travellers,” he said, adding that airports serve as the first impression of Malaysia to many travellers.

Anjung Malaysia is located at the fifth floor in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), an area especially made to depict the local culture through architecture, products and cuisine display.

“What we are trying to do is to enhance our passengers’ enjoyment of their Malaysian experience. The integration of our national identity with MAHB’s vision, brand and service delivery strategies will be a valuable differentiating factor,” MAHB MD Datuk Badlisham Ghazali said.

Anjung Malaysia was designed with “Nostalgia” as a theme, as a one way to attract visitors and travellers to the local culture.

Meanwhile, MAHB also unveiled its limited edition “Proudly Malaysian” chocolate collection in partnership with Royal Selangor and Fidani. The box contains premium chocolates with motifs that are Malaysian-themed such as Gembira, Malaysiana, Batik and Peony.

In June 2017 KLIA registered 28.43 million for year-to-date passengers, with 20.4 million of them being international passengers and 8.03 million as domestic passengers.
