Introduction Senai International Airport (ICAO-WMKJ, IATA-JHB) which is also known as Senai International Airport is located in Johor Bahru, Malaysia � 30 km away from Singapore. The airport is constructed in 1974 and has gone through numerous changes physically and was previously operated by the government and Malaysia Airports Berhad.
SENAI AIRPORT TERMINAL SERVICES (SATS) was incorporated in 16th June 1992 with a vision to develop Senai Airport into a passenger & logistics hub of the southern region. The shareholders of SATS also own the sea ports, Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) and Johor Port. On 1st November 2003, SATS took over Senai International Airport from Malaysia Airport Berhad, holding a 50 year concession - to develop the airport into Asia Pacific's New Logistics Hub and Low Cost Airport.
Since the inception of Senai Airport Terminal Services, passenger throughput has been steadily climbing. In the year ending 2004, SATS have reached the 1.5 million mark and we are poised for further and higher growth in the coming years.
Growth Domestic Product Based on strong economic growth Malaysia's air traffic market is estimated to grow from 37.5 million passengers in 2005 to 64 million passengers in 2020. Malaysia's international traffic is estimated to grow faster than domestic traffic, driven by strong inbound and outbound demand. Domestic traffic is estimated to double by 2030, which is mainly driven by domestic tourism and the increased market presence of low cost airlines. The air traffic mobility of Malaysia is estimated to increase from a propensity to fly of 1.4 in 2003 to 2.0 in 2030, in line with developed countries in Europe at present. Current GDP for the state of Johor is USD4, 000.
