Malaysia Airports Holdings will unite with Tourism Malaysia to host the 20th Routes Asia in Langkawi next year.

For the 2024 edition, over 3,000 meetings are expected to take place.
Speaking at the handover ceremony, Sallauddin Mat Sah, general manager: aviation marketing & development, Malaysia Airports, said: “Routes Asia 2023 has been a huge success with very strong attendance from both airlines and airports.
“Routes events are incredibly important, as they allow our organisation to meet the decision makers from airlines in the region. Hosting Routes Asia will allow us to showcase not only Langkawi but also the country of Malaysia to carriers from across the region.”
Steven Small, director of Routes, said: “This year’s event brought together over 1,000 decision makers from the route development community. The recovery for this region has really gathered paced in the last year and we are confident that we will see this continue in Langkawi.”
