SG-KL Air Route Named World’s Busiest Again, Proving SG And Malaysia Needs Each Other

Despite the recent hiccups and unhappiness over the many bilateral issues between Singapore and Malaysia’s new Mahathir-led government, the Singapore to Kuala Lumpur air route has been voted the busiest international air link for the second year running.

the 296km route, which is also the amongst the shortest international air link in the world, is operated by 8 carriers with an average of 82 flights daily. Amongst the carriers traveling this route are Singapore Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Scoot and Air Asia.

Malaysia’s PM, Mahathir Mohamed is known for his dislike of Singapore’s policy against Malaysia, with some disagreements including raising the water issues again, his proposed crooked bridge and his government putting on hold indefinitely of a rail link between Singapore and KL. But with this recent data on air route, this just shows that KL needs Singapore as much as Singapore needs KL.
