Though the airport is on the smaller size, it can still handle more than fifteen million passengers every year.
Airport Parking Options
The airport has around 800 parking spots available for travellers, but you should look for those closest to the passenger terminal, as some are closer to the cargo terminals. Parking rates start at RM 1 for one hour, and discounted rates are available for those leaving their vehicles for several days.
