About Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI)

Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI) is the busiest Malaysian airport located outside of Kuala Lumpur. This airport can be found eight kilometres southwest of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah's rapidly growing state capital. In 2014, well over six and a half million passengers walked through the two terminals of Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI), which serves Sabah's entire west coast.

Don’t Miss

Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI) is capable of handling up to 12 million passengers per year as well as the largest jumbo jets on Earth. Flights from this airport now travel non-stop to destinations across Malaysia and most of Asia's largest cities. Both airport terminals were significantly expanded in 2006.

At the end of 2015, Terminal 1 handled most of the airport's commercial traffic, while Terminal 2 is mainly used for general aviation and cargo flights. Terminal 1, the newer and bigger of the two terminals, is a three-floor structure with a ground floor arrival hall and second floor departure area.

Terminal 1 also contains three sets of Forex facilities, ATMs, left luggage facilities, publicly accessible wireless internet access, and a medical clinic on Level 1. The older Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI), Terminal 2, primarily served low cost carriers and charter flights. The Terminal 2 entrance is located close to the Tanjung Aru beach.

Restaurants and Bars

Both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 contain a handful of places where passengers can grab quick bites to eat. Most restaurants at both Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI) terminals are either coffee shops or well-known fast food franchises. Level 1 and Level 3 are where most Terminal 1 restaurants are found.

Shopping

The places to shop at Terminal 1 are situated on Level 3 in the side of the departure hall which can be accessed by the public. A shop selling bird's nests and frozen seafood stands alongside jewellery, cosmetics, chocolate, perfume, and Sabah handicrafts shops in Terminal 1. Terminal 2 includes a duty-free shop.
