Sultan Ismail Petra Airport

Sultan Ismail Petra Airport is the airport that serves Kota Bharu and probably the only airport in the state of Kelantan.

The airport building is synonymous with the Islamic image of the state and adopt Moorish architecture

The airport is a former RAF base, the scene of the first Japanese landing in Malaya in 8 December 1941. After the war, the military airfield was turned into civilian airport.

The new terminal started operating from 2002 gives a more modern feeling while traveling to Kota Bharu. The airports are served by Malaysia Airlines, Air Asia and Fireflyz with most of the flights from Kuala Lumpur.

KFC is the biggest restaurant in the airport building and the restaurant offers clear view of the airstrip and air crafts.

The departure lounge is spacious and comfortable. However, there ain't much activities to engage here while waiting for departure.

as the air passengers' traffic is low, airport's size is just right
