Penang International Airport

Hi everyone,

First time going to Penang, and with elderly folks. Can I check whether embarkation and disembarkation at the airport is via airbridges or via stairs? Thanks much !

It's mostly airbridges unless one is travelling on propeller planes then the planes will be parked at one end and there's quite a steep ramp to walk up to the main hall.

I have been to Penang twice this year. Air Asia from KL. Both times only airbridge was used to board the plane. Disembarking was via stairs from plane to tarmac, then a ramp to the terminal. But the ramp goes around and around, so it wasn't too steep.
