As Penang's tourism industry bounces back from the Covid-19 pandemic, the focus is on enhancing the infrastructure to cater to the booming industry.

One plan is the expansion and upgrading of the Penang International Airport (PIA) by the Federal Government, which would allow the airport to accommodate more than 12 million passengers annually.

Penang tourism and creative economy committee chairman Wong Hon Wai said this during an interview at his office in Komtar, Penang recently.
