Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd has proposed the inclusion of aerobridges at the planned low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

The aerobridges are intended to provide comfort to passengers who would not have to worry about weather conditions while boarding aircraft.

The new LCCT to be built close to the existing KLIA terminal at a cost of MYR2bn ($636m) will be able to handle 30 million passengers each year.

It will include 72 gates and a new dual-mode runway that will allow for a 25-minute turnaround time, according to thestaronline.

A joint venture between UEM Construction Sdn Bhd and Bina Puri Holdings Bhd should complete the LCCT project in 2012.
