Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2)  

KLIA2 at Glance


KLIA2 is being constructed to replace the current Low-Cost Carrier Terminal, which was constructed in 2006. The new terminal expected to be completed and opened on May 2, 2014, as according to owners, Malaysia Airport Holdings Berhad (MAHB), the total cost to build the KLIA2 is estimated at RM4.0 Billion which is currently 90% completed. KLIA2 is located just two kilometers from the main KLIA Terminal. Upon complete, it will be the largest LCC Terminal in the region with a total area of 242,000 sq meters.

There will be a total of 68 aircraft parking bay with departure gates for each parking bay while the new budget terminal will cater to around 30 million passengers. There will also be a third runaway which is located 1.5 km from the second runaway.

KLIA2 will feature a multi-modal transportation hub for buses, taxis, and Express Rail Link (ERL) train to provide connectivity for passengers and also for the public. There is also talk of a possible KTM Train link nearby making it easy to get here. Other facilities here include a semi-automated baggage handling system, support zones, cargo and inflight complexes, a 6,000-vehicle parking complex, two to three hotels and AirAsia's future headquarters.

When the new low-cost terminal is completed, it will be equipped with facilities to cater to passenger comfort, including a public shopping mall and a fully automated baggage handling system. Among the main hotels that will be built here is the Tune Hotel which will serve as one of the main budget hotels here. Another possibility is that Pan Pacific will also open a hotel here.

One of the highlights here is the much talked about 300 meter long pedestrian skybridge in an airport. The skybridge will connect the international pier and the domestic pier. This modern skybridge will be the longest in Asia and third longest in the world where passengers will have the experience of 'walking over' the aircraft compared to KLIA where travelers take the aerotrain on ground level.

There will be 225 Commercial Lots at KLIA2. From the 225 lots, 118 lots will be for Retail, 81 lots Food and Beverage and 26 lots for Services. Watch out for the KLIA2 Commercial Lots tender notice on 9th December 2010 in major newspapers.

The opening of KLIA2 will help make the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) as one of the aviation hubs in Southeast Asia.
