The Aerotrain service at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) linking the main and satellite buildings will be suspended for three months from November to facilitate maintenance works.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the Aerotrain units were due for full servicing and maintenance works as they had been operating for 12 years and clocked about one million kilometres.
He said during this time, 16 buses would be used to transport passengers between the main terminal and satellite building.
"We want the public to know that we are not ending the service and there are no serious problems with the trains. I hope there is no speculation over the matter.
"Scheduled servicing and maintenance have to be carried out as the trains have been in use for such a long time," he told press conference here Thursday, after an official visit to the KLIA, Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) and the Civil Aviation Department watch tower.
