Kuching Airport

The Kuching International Airport (KCH) is one of the most important hubs in Malaysia. This airport was established in the 1930s, and has since developed into a top travel facility for the country. This airport handily connects Malaysian nationals and international travellers to the spectacular Sarawak Region in East Malaysia, more commonly referred to as Malaysian Borneo. Kuching International Airport can also boast being one of the top five busiest airports in the country, and has stepped up its traffic to over five million people a year.

The airport updated in 2006, with a new terminal, and newer facilities. Free WiFi is available in designated sections of the terminal. There are ATMs you can utilise and a currency exchange service, for any holiday financial admin you still need to do. You will also find there is a healthy duty-free shopping outlet where you can purchase tax-free goods.

There are also a number of eateries you can grab refreshments in pre or post flight if you’re feeling peckish. If you need some guidance on the city, or the airport, there are information desks made available to transiting passengers.

Flights to Kuching from the cities and states of Australia are often operated by carriers like Jetstar, Malaysia Airlines, SilkAir, Singapore Airlines, and Qantas.
