New LCCT ready by 2012
Thursday July 1, 2010
The new Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) here is expected to be completed by early 2012, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said.
He said the LCCT was taking longer to complete as construction was being undertaken on the basis of a tender exercise.
“Also, we are currently redoing the design, as the new building is much bigger than the original concept. So, all this has resulted in more time being taken for completion,” he told a press conference after the KL International Airport’s (KLIA) 12th anniversary celebration yesterday.
“In the first half of 2010 alone, KLIA managed to rope in three Middle Eastern airlines ?Mahan Air, Oman Air and Royal Jordanian. Last year, the airport handled 29.6 million passengers, an increase of 7.8% compared with previously,” he added. – Bernama
He also attributed the outstanding performance to all agencies at the KLIA.
The KLIA has this year bagged three awards – Best Airport Immigration Service, Staff Service Excellence in the South-East Asia category at the Skytrax 2010 World Airport Awards and Best Brand in Transportation from Brand Laureate 2009-2010. – Bernama
