Even after extension of the runway and complete facelift of the terminal building, Ipoh airport is still a lonely airport which only one budget commercial flight operator, Firefly landing here. There was another budget airline getting ready to commence flights between Ipoh and Medan few months ago. This was followed by the runway extension which claimed to be capable of handling Boeing-737. However, the plan was last minute being called off for the reason of runway isn't fit for Boeing-737. Wasn't it surprise? No further in-depth explanation to the public, though it is not making sense at all. And the case just left silence since then.
