 Malaysia’s busiest domestic airport, SkyPark Terminal, achieved another milestone when it became the first airport in Malaysia to collaborate with South East Asia’s leading ride hailing service, Grab. The agreement was signed at a Press Conference at the Peugeot Lounge at SkyPark Terminal by Yg.

Over the years we have seen our footfall increase consistently and with our projections for 2017 showing a continuation of this positive growth, partnering with Grab will allow us to meet this growing demand,” said Tan Sri Datuk Ravindran Menon, Executive Director of Subang SkyPark Sdn Bhd.
