Penang to Melbourne Flights
Penang International Airport
The Penang International Airport sits less than ten miles from George Town, which is the capital city of Penang Island. The airport serves fifteen airlines that offer flights to multiple locations around Asia, including AirAsia, China Airlines, Tiger Airways, and Lion Air. 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.
Penang Ground Transportation
You can reach the Penang International Airport by ferry, taxi, or bus. George Town's Victoria Street has a bus depot that offers transport to the airport for RM 2.70. Bus lines 401, 401A, and 401E are rapid lines that can get you to the airport in around thirty minutes, but the buses stop running at 10 p.m. The ferry only charges RM 1.20, while cabs are a little costlier at RM 38. From downtown George Town, it may take forty-five minutes to reach the airport by cab, depending on traffic.
Eating at the Airport
You’ll find a variety of restaurants outside the airport and inside the terminal. Near the airport is Pinang Kopitiam, a local restaurant that specializes in regional dishes. Inside are fast food options like McDonald's, Kenny Rogers Roasters, and Coffee Bean. All three choices are perfect for those who need to grab something quickly before catching a flight. You’ll also find shops that sell clothing, souvenirs, and sundries at the airport on Penang Island
