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.

Return trips from Penang via the bridge is free of charge.
