A good number of the 400,000 or so passengers who used northeast Malaysia's Sultan Abdul Halim Airport in 2010 were Muslims who took advantage of the airport's seasonal direct flights to the sacred city of Medina during the hajj pilgrimage season. This Kepala Batas airport lies less than nine miles from Alor Setar with car rental in Sultan Abdul Halim Airport.
In addition to seasonal direct flights to the Saudi Arabian cities of Jeddah and Medina, this airport offers Firefly flights to Subang and flights to Kuala Lumpur with AirAsia and Malaysia Airlines throughout the year. The training division of the Royal Malaysian Air Force shares the runway of this airport, whose limited amenities include a Hertz branch where customers may compare car hire.
The largest city this northeast Malaysian airport serves is Alor Setar, Kedah's state capital. Few Peninsular Malaysian state capitals are as rich in culture as this city, which is surrounded by scenic paddy plantations. Among Alor Setar's most famous landmarks is northern Malaysia's oldest fort, the 17th century Kota Kuala Kedah, at less than 12 miles from Alor Star with car hire in Sultan Abdul Halim Airport.
Alor Setar's hottest months may be March and April, but February is the only truly dry month in this city which has a tropical monsoon climate. Downpours are fairly common, even during Alor Setar's brief dry season. December and January are the coolest months, but even during these months Alor Setar's weather remains hot and humid.
Like drivers in most other regions of Malaysia, Alor Setar motorists tend to drive without seatbelts, enter roads without stopping and speed through red lights. However, driving here presents few problems for those who take proper precautions. Motorways effortlessly link Alor Setar with Butterworth, less than 58 miles to the south, and the Thai border, less than 28 miles to the north.
