History

Initial construction stage

Numerous criticism has been received, including its location, which is almost 50 km from KL City Centre. however, this can be solved by installing a 57 km high speed rail network (KLIA Ekspres) to actually connect the airport and city centre.

Subang Airport replacement

It has been designated to replace Subang Airport as the main gateway to Malaysia. The airport code (KUL) are also taken from Subang Airport (now Subang Airport uses SZB as its IATA code)

 

KLIA Master Plan

  • 5 runways will be constructed
  • 2 satellite terminals
  • 3 main terminals
  • 1 30 mppa budget terminal
  • 125 million passenger per annum (mppa) capacity

 

LCCT (Former Site)

Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT), KLIA is a budget terminal located in KLIA tailored for low cost carriers in Malaysia,  such as AirAsia. As the aviation industry in Malaysia grows up rapidly, AirAsia also feels the rapid spurt of growth, thanks to its ‘Now everyone can fly’ campaign.

LCCT @ Labu, Negeri Sembilan (cancelled)

Early 2009, AirAsia and Sime Darby has agreed to build a new LCCT terminal in Labu, Negeri Sembilan. Both companies will agree to pay in full the costs involved. The new airport is estimated to cost about RM 1.6 billion. It is just a mere 8 km from KLIA. The government initially gave a greenlight with this plan, but it was held back a few weeks later following on complaints made by numerous parties, including our former Prime Minister and MAHB. MAHB instead told that the new LCCT is already in KLIA’s materplan, and waiting to be constructed.

However, Malaysian government vetoed the decision and call to scrap the plan, justifying that the new LCCT at KLIA will be completed in 2011, which is in three years time, in line with NAMP (National Airport Master Plan).

The New LCCT at KLIA (klia2)

The new mini budget has included a new LCCT under its proposed expenditure, which is a RM 2 bil LCCT located in KLIA’s area.

Key Features of klia2

  • Estimated cost: RM 2 billion
  • Completion Date: Third Quarter 2011
  • Size: 150 000 sq m
  • Capacity: 30 mppa, with capability of expansion up to 45 mppa
  • Comfort level: 15 – 20 sq m per passenger
  • Multi-story car park – 6000 parking bays
  • Landside connection to KLIA main terminal building
  • Aircraft parking apron with 70 bays
  • New 4 km 3rd runway (after 2 existing one at KLIA)
  • Full parallel taxiways for runway 2 and runway 3 for quick turnaround
  • Integrated transport hub for buses and taxis
  • Efficient layout of concession areas for retail and food and beverage outlets
  • Transfer areas to facilitate ease of connections
