Malaysian newspapers are reporting that the construction of KLIA2, the planned low-cost carrier terminal at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, is ahead of schedule and should be fully operational by April 2013.
The news was released following a visit by investors to the construction site. The new airport terminal is currently 52% complete and 90 days ahead of schedule.
KLIA2, as the new terminal will be called, is set to be the world’s largest low-cost carrier terminal and have the capacity to handle 45 million passengers per year.
Kuala Lumpur is the base for AirAsia, the largest budget airline in Asia, which operates more than 400 flights per day.
