Malaysia hits half of 2022 arrival target

More than one million tourists have entered Malaysia since international borders were reopened on April 1 this year, bringing the country past the half-way mark of the government’s two million international arrivals target for 2022.

Speaking at a Firefly Airlines event on June 4, tourism, arts and culture minister Nancy Shukri said the majority of arrivals was from Singapore – the segment contributed around 600,000 tourists over the past two months.
