Encik Nazli Aziz, senior general manager for commercial services at Malaysia Airports, says: “Langkawi International Airport is the first of our airports to fully implement our commercial reset strategy. Langkawi island is one of the world's most popular holiday destinations and we aim to raise its profile further by ensuring that the airport is also a leisure destination in itself.
