The Penang International Airport located in Bayan Lepas receives direct flights from major capitals in the region. Malaysian Airlines (MAS) operates more than 20 flights daily to and from Penang. Budget airlines such as Air Asia and Firefly also offer flights at competitive rates to and from this island.

From the airport, you can either take taxis or buses to reach any point on the island.

By Car

The North-South Highway connects Penang to major cities on the West side of Peninsular Malaysia. Travel by highway can take anywhere from 4-5 hours with toll charges in between.

Once you reach Butterworth, which is the island’s main entry point from the mainland, you may take either the Penang Bridge or the ferry to cross over to the island, which still operates from Butterworth to Weld Quay and will transport your vehicle too at a small charge. Return trips from Penang via the bridge is free of charge.

By Train

KTMB, the national train company, serves a daily route to Butterworth from Kuala Lumpur, taking approximately 6 hours. Alternatively, you can also take a train from Alor Setar in Kedah. For train schedules and further information, visit www.ktmb.com.my.
