Malaysia Airports is currently upgrading its services and facilities to serve airport users at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) better.
Part of the plans include expanding the LCCT to accommodate AirAsia’s long haul operations. With this, passengers will also have Internet access for free.
The “hotspots” Wifi@LCCT-KLIA service was launched by Malaysia Airports’ managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad recently.
The enhanced wired and wireless access is available at both the international and domestic departure areas and the public departure concourse.
This service will enable Malaysia Airports to better serve not only the airlines operating at LCCT-KLIA but its community as a whole,” said Bashir.
He said as LCCT-KLIA is an extension of existing facilities at KLIA, the upgrade is an integral part of Malaysia Airports commitment to ensure all their airports remain as one of the leading airports in the world, equipped with the latest technology that benefits both the customers and other airport users.
“We believe this service will further strengthen its position as the best low cost airport in this region,” added Bashir.
KLIA was equipped with free wireless access last September and this new technology will support KLIA’s network for many years to come as the capacity has increased 40 times from 622 megabits per second to 10 gigabits per second.
