According to a report by New Straits Times in February, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) said it had obtained the government's approval on the rebranding.

"It is not immediate since the rebranding is part of a new Operating Agreement (OA 2023) between the Malaysian government and Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB).

"The government and MAHB will finalise and sign the OA 2023 and related Lease Agreements before the end of the first quarter of 2023 (March 31)," Transport Minister Anthony Loke said during a press conference in February, as reported by Malay Mail.

Although there has yet to be any confirmation on the proposed rebranding, SAYS has already spotted the new names on Malaysia Airports' official website and our flight details
