Actually it is not really a low cost terminal at all. The building cost is certinally not. It is just that the low cost carriers like AirAsia and soon Malindo are the big ones operating there.

The new terminal will be know as KLIA2 and not LCCT

So the KLIA 2 would be pretty much like the KLIA 1.

Or I would say like Terminal 1 in Changi airport.

KLIA2 should not and does not resemble a low budget airline terminal at all. Its quite an impressive terminal in its own right.

It looks like a NEW airport in it self... The sheer size of the construction site is huge when compared with T1...

KLIA2 to be opened on June 28

SEPANG: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today announced that the new low-cost airport, dubbed KLIA2, will be launched on June 28 this year, co-inciding with the launch date of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in 1998.

The premier said the airport was scheduled to be ready by May this year, but the operations would not be rushed as there were some teething issues to be solved before its opening.

"We should go through some of the teething problems with the new terminal and once it is ready, then KLIA2 will be fully operational.

"As a target, I have decided that it should co-incide with the date of the opening of KLIA. Hopefully, I will have the opportunity to open KLIA2 on June 28," he said.

Najib said this at the launching of a specially designed 1Malaysia AirAsia aircraft livery to commemorate the start of 1Malaysia Integration Programme with AirAsia at the LCCT (Low-Cost Carrier Terminal) here today.

Also present were Minister of Youth and Sports, Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek, AirAsia's Group Chief Executive Officer, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes and Managing Director of Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad.

Bashir said MAHB welcomed the prime minister's decision not to rush the opening of the KLIA2 and to coincide it with the opening date of KLIA.

He said all issues pertaining to the new airport were expected to be settled before the opening date to avoid even any minor glitches during operations.

"We do not want to rush. I think the prime minister has the same thought in mind. We have seen many airports worldwide fail because they were rushed into operations.

"It is something exciting also if the date coincides (KLIA & KLIA2), as it will be a double celebration for us at MAHB," Bashir said.

The RM3.6 billion KLIA2, built to cater for the explosive growth expected in low-cost travel, is sprawled over 257,000 sq metres and is envisaged to handle a maximum of 45 million passengers a year.

The airport will have 60 gates, eight remote stands, 80 aerobridges, plus a retail space covering 32,000 sq metres to accommodate 225 retail outlets. -- BERNAMA

Eraman @ KLIA2

Eraman’s “piece de resistance” for klia2, the 3002.69 sq m departure walkthrough emporium




Eraman’s Level 2 arrival walkthrough emporium spanning 1985.49sq m


Flying Nomad, Eraman’s inhouse fashion label


Nyonya House adds a Sense of Place to klia2 with its Peranakan-inspired décor


Eraman’s upscale wine and cigar offer accentuated by mood-based lighting and display


Eraman Malaysia has revealed details of its hugely ambitious plans for the upcoming klia2 low-cost terminal.
Eraman, the retail subsidiary of MAHB, will be the main concessionaire in Klia2, operating 22 outlets (or 28 lots out of 225) which cover a total of 7,210.61 sq m. The commercial space dedicated solely to retail and food & beverage in klia2 (landside and airside combined) spans 35,200sq m (this excludes space for administrative offices and other concessions).

Referring to klia2 as a “coming of age” for Eraman after 20 years of airport retailing, Malaysia Airports (Niaga) Sdn Bhd General Manager Fawzy Ahmad said that frontliners will be referred to as ‘hosts’ and not staff, highlighting the level of customer service the terminal will offer.

All aspects of the terminal’s design, from building materials to lighting, right down to the cleaning soap used by the cleaners, are chosen to be as eco-friendly as possible. Claimed as the first airport in the world to receive Green Globe 21 (GG21) certification – the global Benchmarking, Certification and improvement system for sustainable travel and tourism – this is in line with KLIA’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiative to encourage activities that protect and preserve the earth.
