MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has revised its targeted passenger growth this year to 3-4 per cent in light of the increase in tourist arrivals.
The airport operator had earlier projected passenger volume to remain stagnant or fall 5 per cent compared to last year.
"This (new projection) is based on tourist arrival figures. Tourism is doing well even during the economic downturn," MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad told a news conference in Sepang yesterday.
Also present were Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) director-general Datuk Azharuddin Abdul Rahman and MAHB chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman.
