Facilities for disabled people

There is no information on accessibility to be found on Penang International Airport’s webpage and no mention on accessibility services and facilities anywhere at all on Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad’s entire website. The website’s sitemap is almost incomprehensible and very hard to use, making browsing for meaningful information a frustrating effort.
Please contact your airline in advance to make arrangements for wheelchair services or any other special assistance you might need while visiting Penang International Airport.
