When international travel is intensifying again
Are you ready to travel internationally again? I think I am. First thing first though, need to renew my passport online. Here’s the link if you are also thinking of doing the same as me. Malaysia Passport Renewal Online. My first destination may even be to the U.S representing District 51 Toastmasters here in Malaysia to the annual international convention. Second destination should be to some ASEAN countries. Do I feel comfortable to travel. Well, too many of my friends have travelled near and far thus far. So, perhaps I should join them too.
Now, if we intend to fly, are the flights ready? Are airlines ready with pilots? Today, let’s just look at some employment news of airlines, the famous ones yeah.

The remaining new crew members are set to be hired by the end of the company’s current financial year next March 2023. Article in thestar.com.my

When international flights start to become popular again
Malaysia’s total foreign visitors dropped 90 percent in 2021 versus 2019! It used to be over 26 million. It was just 4 million in 2021. Yeah, that’s pretty crazy right. From over 2 million per month, total visitors dropped to just over 4 million one whole year! My friend said KLIA is still very quiet. In fact a friend said that even Changi International Airport is considered very quiet. This is where I think when the rain comes, it will pour. Happy planning for travel and remember to always stay on the safe side when it comes to wearing a mask in public areas, especially in a foreign country.
