Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) has revealed that the new permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT), KLIA 2, at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) will be complete and open for traffic in October 2012.

The new 242,000m² facility worth 2bn ringgit ($675m) is designed to handle 30 million passengers a year initially and can be expanded to handle up to 45 million passengers.

The national airport operator, MAHB, is devoting 35,000m² to commercial activities and 15,000m² of retail space in a single centraliszed airside area.

The new terminal will be located 2km away from KLIA’s main terminal building and allows for better connectivity between the two terminals.

In addition, a multimodal transportation hub is being built for buses, taxis and the Express rail link including a 6,000-bay multistorey car park and a shopping mall with 35,000m² of commercial space adjacent to the terminal building.

MAHB is yet to tender out a few projects for developing the terminal, which includes the construction of a new runway at the airport.
