Senai Airport Terminal Services Sdn Bhd (Senai International Airport), a member of MMC Group, was named ‘Asia Pacific Regional Airport of the Year 2018’ under the 10 million annual passengers category during the recent CAPA Asia Pacific Aviation Awards for Excellence 2018.

CAPA's Aviation Awards for Excellence is a prestigious event recognising strategic excellence for the aviation industry in Asia Pacific, the Middle East and globally. The award recipients were determined by an independent international panel of judges, not by customer surveys or sponsorships.

The Asia Pacific Regional Airport of the Year 2018 Award was presented to En Md Derick Basir, Chief Executive Officer of Senai International Airport by Peter Harbison, CAPA Executive Chairman, during the event which was held in Sentosa, Singapore. Senai International Airport was selected for its leading role in using new biometrics technology and its support of the LCC model, which has driven rapid growth.

In early 2018, Senai International Airport became the first Asian airport to implement AirAsia’s Fast Airport Clearance Experience System, a cutting-edge biometrics technology providing a seamless self-service travel experience from check-in to boarding gates.

Senai International Airport is currently connected to 19 destinations, including 12 domestic and seven international links. The airport welcomed its first three millionth passengers in 2017 and passenger traffic has nearly tripled over the last six years with at least 10% growth every year since 2013.
