Malaysia's fourth-busiest airport, Kuching International Airport, is the main gateway to the nation's southwest region of Sarawak, on the island of Borneo. This airport lies less than seven miles north of Sarawak's largest city, Kuching, with car hire in Kuching International Airport. This rapidly-growing airport handled well over three million visitors in 2010.
Most of the airport's flights travel to other Malaysian cities, but direct flights to Singapore are also available.

One baggage reclaim hall is for international flights, including those to cities outside Sarawak, while the other is reserved for flights within Sarawak.
