01

Land Connectivity

Strategic projects will be undertaken to enhance land connectivity across the region, covering roads and highways, railway and logistics hubs. Examples of such projects include the Northern Corridor Highway, Kota Perdana Special Border Economic Zone, Perlis Inland Port and Padang Besar Sentral development.

02

Air Connectivity

NCER is easily accessible by air from various parts of the world with the presence of two international airports (Langkawi International Airport and Penang International Airport) and two domestic airports (Sultan Azlan Shah Airport and Sultan Abdul Halim Airport). 

 

Under the new strategic development plan, the Penang International Airport and the Sultan Azlan Shah Airport will be expanded. A new project known as Kedah Aerotropolis will be developed, encompassing Kulim International Airport (KXP) and the Sidam Logistics, Aerospace and Manufacturing Hub (SLAM).

03

Sea Connectivity

With its strategic location facing the Straits of Malacca, NCER also offers excellent sea connectivity via Penang Port and Lumut Maritime Terminal. Penang Port will be expanded to increase its capacity, while a new passenger terminal will be developed in Kuala Perlis to improve passenger movement to Pulau Langkawi.
