An innovative new commercial strategy by Malaysia Airports is elevating F&B standards across all its airports, with Langkawi International Airport (LIA) offering an exciting foretaste of more to come. Here are 5 new dining spots to enjoy when you're next at LIA.

Success stories like the annual 'KULinary' campaign at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Jewel Changi Airport and others have shown us that the airport needn’t merely be a place of transit, but also an exceptional hub for gourmands in particular.

Coincidently, F&B is a major focus of Malaysia Airports’ Commercial Reset Strategy this year. Langkawi International Airport has reaped the benefits of that strategy, now presenting travellers with some exciting new dining experiences, some of which are a first in Malaysia, if not a first on the island.

Ocean Bar & Kitchen

An eclectic menu of Asian and Western fare awaits foodies at Ocean Bar & Kitchen, your go-to place for the comfort food classics you'll love.   

Inspired by the peaceful blue hues of the Andaman Ocean, its laid-back beach house setting includes a cheerful assortment of bright colours, modern industrial accents, checkerboard floors and wall-mounted surfboards; but it’s the food here that’s the real star of the show: ask about the Ocean Bar Surf Platter or the Salmon Brioche when you're next at this part of the airport.
