The new international arrival hall at the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) is now open.
The extended hall adds 32,000 sq m of additional floor space to the existing 28,000 sq m available. When fully operational in March, it will be able to handle 15 million passengers annually.
Malaysia Airports Bhd (MAB) senior general manager (operations) Datuk Azmi Murad said in a statement that the expansion would cater to the growing numbers of low-cost travellers and to enhance passenger comfort level.
The new hall is part of the RM160mil new wing constructed under the LCCT expansion plan.
Six baggage carousels have also been added to further expedite baggage handling while there will be 12 Custom counters and 34 Immigra- tion counters.
The first flight to arrive at the new hall was AirAsia's AK079 from Hong Kong.
