The previous Subang International Airport when built in the 60s are also very far away from the city but in the early 90s......residential and commercial developments creep literally to its doorsteps! This also further worsen the traffic and many misses flight because of the bad traffic situation along the highways.

So to solved this problem, KLIA is located near the coast and it is tha largest airport in the world interms of land size as the govt wants such landbank to prevent developments popping up around the airport

Passenger traffic at KLIA ‘likely to hit 19 million’



PUTRAJAYA: Passenger traffic at the KL International Airport is expected to hit more than 19 million by the end of the year, surpassing the estimated figure of 18.5 million.

The revised figure is due to the healthy growth in passenger movement at the airport in the first four months of the year.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said KLIA recorded a 19.4% growth in passenger movement during that period due in part to the booming tourism industry and the return of several foreign passenger airlines to the airport, including Lufthansa.

“This growth is very encouraging. We have estimated the growth this year to be only by one million passengers to 18.5 million, but judging by KLIA’s performance in the first four months, we expect the increase to hit 19 million.

“We are confident that within the next few years, KLIA will start operating at its maximum capacity of 25 million passengers,” he told reporters at his office yesterday.

He said that currently 35 foreign passenger airlines flew into KLIA, adding that eleven of them had increased the frequency of their service to the airport by 7% or 21 additional services in the first four months of the year.

Chan said KLIA would also benefit from the plan by Malaysia Airlines to increase its services to China from the present five destinations to eight by early next year as Chinese passenger airlines would reciprocate by increasing their flights to KLIA from the new MAS destinations.

MAS currently flies to Beijing, Shanghai, Xiamen, Guangzhou and Hong Kong.

Asked about a report that MAS was considering imposing a passenger fuel levy to offset soaring oil prices, Chan said: “Not at the moment.”

KLIA first in region to get global safety certification



SEPANG: KL International Airport has become the first terminal in the Asia-Pacific region to have its facilities, equipment and operations certified as conforming to international standards of safety.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said KLIA’s certification was ahead of over 50 other countries in the region, including developed nations like Japan, Singapore and Australia.

“The certification is a new requirement under the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), which calls for all international airports to provide uniform safety conditions for all aircraft.

“The requirement is in line with the rapid air transport growth, increasing airport privatisation trend and increasing global concerns on aviation safety.

“The awarding of this certificate to KLIA shows that all facilities, equipment and operational procedures are complying with the standard and recommended practices under ICAO
,” he said after witnessing the presentation of the certificate to Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd here yesterday.

The certification was given after auditing by the Civil Aviation Department.

This, added Chan, would ensure that KLIA’s aircraft operations, especially in the handling of new large aircraft like the Airbus 380, were safe and efficient.

Chan said the next airport to be certified under the ICAO standards would be the Bayan Lepas International Airport in Penang, followed by Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Johor and Langkawi.

“Malaysia Airports plans to certify all its international and domestic airports by 2006,” he said.

KLIA - 1st in Asia Pacific to be certified by Green Globe 21

The Star 25/05/2004

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is stepping up efforts to recover bad debts arising from outstanding rentals from retail tenants at KL International Airport (KLIA).

“We are taking this (recovery of bad debts) seriously. We have already started taking action,'' chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman said, adding that the amount due was “substantial''.

MAHB had offered reasonable discounts to tenants due to the harsh business conditions caused by last year's Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome outbreak, he said.

In the financial year ended Dec 31, 2003, MAHB had made nearly RM80mil in provision for bad debt, of which some RM65mil or over 80% was unpaid rental from KLIA tenants. As a result, the group's net profit was halved to RM80.9mil.

Aris said in recovering the amount owed to MAHB, the company would follow the proper procedures and the tenants would initially be given a warning.

The last resort would be closing down the retail shops concerned, he told the press after receiving the Green Globe 21 certification for KLIA in Sepang yesterday.

KLIA is the first airport in Asia Pacific to be certified by Green Globe 21 – a global environmental programme for the travel and tourism industry.

Aris also said the number of passengers to KLIA rose to six million in the first four months of this year compared with 5.2 million in the previous corresponding period, boosted by an increase in frequencies of existing airlines and also new airlines flying into KLIA, particularly AirAsia.

He said AirAsia alone brought in two million passengers last year, which represented about 11% of the 17.7 million passengers received by KLIA last year.

Aris also said KLIA would continue to monitor passenger traffic and construct new facilities to cater solely to low-cost carriers when the need arose. He said, the airport was exploring opportunities to woo more no-frills airlines to KLIA.

I always liked the architecture of KLIA. No other airport in SEA, even uncompleted ones, that being Bangkok, can rival KLIA in terms of the general architecture of the terminal... I like the fact also that they planned the layout so meticulously and neatly for future expansion...

But then again the prospect of transferring to an Aerotrain to just get to your flight where trolleys are not allowed is something to look forward to. But I guess it a small sacrifice to cater for the future needs of KLIA. Connectivity is as usual an issue but the future looks promising...

When will they probably start on their next phase of expansion? Will all the new satellite terminals and the new main terminal building addition have the same design as before?

New satellite building plan for KLIA


SEPANG: A new satellite building at the KL International Airport will be operational before the airport reaches its capacity in three years time.









PROJECT LAUNCHING: Chan performing the groundbreaking ceremony for AirAsia’s Simulator Complex in Sepang yesterday, as AirAsia chairman Datuk Pahamin A. Rajab (right) looks on. The complex is due to be completed in February next year. — Bernamapic






Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said KLIA would reach its capacity of 25 million arrivals in “two to three years.”

“We have started planning to expand the capacity of KLIA by building a new satellite building to the structure.

“The current number of passenger arrivals is expected to reach 19.5 million this year, so in two to three years, KLIA would have reached its capacity,” he said.


Chan earlier performed the ground-breaking ceremony for AirAsia's Simulator Complex here yesterday.

On another matter, Chan said any decision to turn the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang into a hub for low-fare air travel would be based on national interest.

“It is a major decision and we are looking at various aspects like convenience to the public, cost of operating low-cost airlines and connectivity,” he said.

Earlier, Chan said the complex was a boost to the country’s aviation industry and could serve as a training ground for pilots in the region.

He said the Government also welcomed the alliance between AirAsia and CAE, a leading training solutions provider on advance simulation and control technology, as it could propel the country into the forefront of pilot training.

Traditionally and for safety reasons.......all aerotrains in all airports (yea......including the aerotrain connecting T1 & T2 at Changi) won't allow any trolleys into em

The most annoying however are those non-trolley-friendly escalators at Sydney Airport. I had to find a place to park the trolley before decending/accending any escalator there.

Actually one's hand luggage shouldn't be a burden to oneself that a trolley is a must to go around the terminal.

Actually those columns and the parabolic roofing at the terminal buildings are abstract interpretation of a tree and rainforest canopy respectively
