Flights to Langkawi International Airport, Langkawi, Malaysia

Langkawi International Airport is the only airport on the island of Langkawi. Situated on the south-western part of the island, the airport consists of a single terminal and handles domestic flights to some destinations within Malaysia as well as several international flights. The airport serves as a venue for the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition, an international aerospace event, hence it also doubles up as an attraction.

Due to the under-developed public transport network on the island, taxis are typically the best option to get around aside from hiring a car or a motorbike. The taxi system is reliable as all taxis follow a fixed price system.

Apart from Kuah, the airport is relatively near to famous beach areas like Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah, both of which are popular amongst locals and tourists. Pantai Cenang is famous for its fine, powdery sand and beachfront restaurants. There are also several water sports operators located at the beach. If you’re looking for a quiet time, Pantai Tengah, just after Pantai Cenang is a peaceful and tranquil alternative littered with resorts.

On the western part of the island, at Pantai Kok, you’ll find the well-known Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls. Legend has it that fairies used to bathe and frolic in the natural pools along its path. While we can’t promise that you’ll be in the company of fairies, you’ll have a fun time nonetheless! You can soak in the pools and glide across the natural rock slides between them. There is also a fairly challenging jungle trekking course in the area, which will lead you up to 2,500 m, through two different mountains.

To get a good view of the island, take the cable car ride operated by Panorama Langkawi, which will bring you 708m above sea level.  Make sure to go on a clear day though, so you can get amazing views of the island. The journey covers a total distance of 2.2km, giving you ample time to snap some pictures and enjoy the view.
