Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) expects an average passenger traffic volume growth of 12% this year as the global economy recovers and people start moving again. Volume has already increased 17% in the first half of this year, and grew 8% in 2009, including both international and domestic traffic.

MAHB has just launched its ‘Indulge Till You Fly’ campaign, presumably to encourage passengers to enjoy the airports’ other charms like retail and restaurants. The six-month campaign covers five Malaysian airports and will offer prizes including first-class air tickets and travel packages to major international destinations. Travelers splurged RM1 billion (US$313 million) at MAHB’s airports last year, and they expect that figure to rise 20-30% this year.
