MIRI: Miri Airport was congested with passengers during the Christmas seasonal crunch of revellers and holiday makers.
There was hardly any seat left at the departure hall at about 2.15 pm, with two long lines at the Immigration departure counters.
The children running around excitedly and the chatter reflected the holiday mood in the air.
Miri Airport is among the busiest in the country in aircraft movement, with over two million passengers passing through in 2015.
Malaysian Airports Berhad is currently expanding the apron and taxiways to cater for the demand.
