Kuching International Airport is the main airport that serves the eastern Malaysian state of Sarawak. It is the capital of this state and is the fourth largest city in Malaysia. Kuching is located in the district of Kuching, and is a tropical location with high temperatures throughout the year making it a popular place for tourists to visit.
The airport is located approximately 11km south of the city, and also serves the Royal Malaysian Air Force. The terminal has been recently renovated and has the ability to handle five million passengers each year. It is the third largest airport in Malaysia and is also the hub for Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia.
The area has an interesting history, including being ruled by the British adventurer James Brooke. The family ruled the area until December 1941 when it was taken under Japanese occupation. Sarawak became part of the Japanese Empire for almost four years, and then when the Japanese surrendered, the region was once again ruled by the Brooke family.
The name Kuching translates to cat in an old Malay language. Most of the cat related places and items in Kuching have came about because or tourism and the legend that Brooke called for a cat and instead got the city. The city of Kuching now advertises itself as the 'City of Cats' and brings in tourists to see the Kuching Cat Museum.
