Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2)  
  MAHB confirms KLIA2 delay  

12 May 2013

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has confirmed the delay in the opening of the new low-cost carrier terminal in Sepang, KLIA2, scheduled for June 28, after taking into account several key quality and safety issues.

MAHB is expected to convene a special meeting with all stakeholders soon, to explain the delay in the construction of the RM4 billion terminal.

“We will be meeting all concerned before announcing a revised opening date. The stakeholders are among others, the contractors, airlines, retail tenants and government agencies,” MAHB CFO Faizal Mansor told Bernama.

He said MAHB does not want to rush the KLIA2 contractors, which could jeopardise the quality and safety of the terminal.

“We want to ensure things are done right to avoid any glitches on the opening day,” he added.

Faizal, however, declined to reveal any timeline as to when the KLIA2 would be launched, or the duration of the delay.

The June 28 launch date target was mooted by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak, to coincide with the date of the opening of the KL International Airport in 1998.

With some 10 airlines committed to operate from it, the KLIA2 is built to handle a maximum of 45 million passengers per year. It will have 60 gates, eight remote stands and 80 aerobridges, plus a 32,000 sq m retail space with 225 outlets.
