One of the few things you would definitely do in the airport other than flying to your destination is indulging in the food it offers!
As the country famous for our food, two of our airports, KL International Airport (KLIA) and klia2, have seen tremendous improvements over the year, achieving higher customer satisfaction and sales.
Recently, Malaysia Airports launches its annual one-month long KULinary campaign where travellers and visitors are welcome to take part in the ‘Weekend Bites’. The food sampling session features award-winning dishes from the top 20 restaurants on every weekend from 10.30am to 6.00pm.
During this campaign, will also organise a Facebook Contest for visitors to win up to RM200 cash prize each. Most importantly, visitors can get Food Passport at the terminals to enjoy amazing discounts and offers from these top 20 restaurants.
KULinary aims to celebrate the top 20 food outlets, selected by independent online food media company, Fried Chillies. The winners of the Judges Choice awards are Sama-sama Express klia2, Flight Club, Grandmama’s, The Green Market and Bumbu Desa.
Sama-sama Express klia2 provides a complete package of resting and dining experience with its room facilities and food services. Its Meat Lovers Pizza and Satay Pizza are among the best options.
As for Flight Club, its strategic locations allow visitors to enjoy spectacular view of planes taking off while eating its top dish of Rotisserie Chicken. Offering a mini Malaysia experience right in the airport.
Grandmama’s serves traditional Malaysian flavours that provide diners with a warm and comforting meal. Their Beef Kuey Teow (flat rice noodles cooked with egg-based sauce and beef slices) is one of the top choices for visitors who need to stay alert to catch a flight in the wee hours of the morning.
Additionally, if visitors are craving for something Korean or Japanese food, The Green Market is always ready to serve them with its star dish, the Garlic Fried Rice that can be eaten during lunch, dinner or supper.
Finally, as the ideal location for family dining, Bumbu Desa welcomes visitors to taste the best of Indonesian cuisine with their generous meal portion at an affordable price. Their Nasi Rabeg Kambing set (lamb in sweet spicy sauce with rice) and Bakso (meatball soup with rice noodles) are among the must-try dishes for visitors.
It’s the third year Malaysia Airports runs this campaign and it is tasked to highlight hidden ‘gems’ in the airports. It’s also Malaysia Airports’ efforts in growing and enhancing the Total Airport Experience, where it measures Airport Service Quality (ASQ) at KLIA and klia2, a barometer that the company adheres to in order to maintain the consistency of airport performance for the benefit of passengers. ASQ for restaurant and eating facilities increased 4.6 percent year-on-year for the third quarter of 2018 (3Q18), as well as an increase of close to 1.2 percent quarter-on-quarter.
Food and beverage sales at both KLIA and klia2 in 2017 also saw an increase of 13.6 percent year-on-year.
