Looks like what you said has happened....
It should be temporary and it has also stopped raining for a few days now so its not a major problem?

Penang airport may see further expansion
Marina Emmanuel
Published: 2011/11/22

The Penang International Airport is likely to see further expansion if plans to relocate the MASkargo Complex Centre close to the airport are successful.

Business Times has learnt that Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is re-looking at an earlier plan to expand the the existing passenger terminal to spill over to the cargo complex in Bayan Lepas to handle higher passenger traffic.

Sources said the MASkargo complex may be relocated to an area adjoining the Second Air Cargo Complex, which is in Batu Maung.

"The relocation of the MASkargo complex hinges on the acquisition of land, since the plot next to the second cargo complex is now where a ve-getable farm sits and belongs to a private owner," a source said.


The federal government is likely to fund the proposed passenger terminal and work will be carried out by MAHB.

A MAHB official did not respond to Business Times' query if the the proposed expansion plan is in the works.

The existing Penang International Airport is currently undergoing a RM250 million upgrade, expected to be completed next year.

The land on which the current airport, MASkargo and second cargo complexes are sited is believed to belong to the federal government, via the Lands and Mines Department.

The Penang International Airport was previously known as Bayan Lepas International Airport and its current terminal building was built in 1977 and officially opened in June 1979.

Over the years, it has undergone numerous upgrades, catering to users like Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia, Firefly, and Cathay Pacific, among others.

The airport registered the highest growth rate among airports in Malaysia last year, recording a 25 per cent increase with some 4.1 million passengers in 2010 compared with 3.3 million the year before.

The airport offers extensive connectivity with major cities in Southeast Asia.

To cater to increasing demand, a new cargo centre was opened for operations in 2000 with a capacity to handle 360,000 tonnes of cargo.

Waves of welcome

By WINNIE YEOH
winnie@thestar.com.my Photo by CHIN CHENG YEANG



PINANG leaves symbolising the betel nut or pinang tree which Penang is named after and the design of ombak (waves) to signify Penang’s beaches and sea are a welcome sight for tourists at the Penang International Air-port.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd’s project manager Fazil Ahmad said the concept was drawn up by AHS Architects from Penang.

“Our island is surrounded by sea and the state’s name is derived from the betel nut tree.

“That is why the concept was designed in reference to Penang’s flag and logo with the Pinang tree leaves and the ombak (waves) in-cluded,” he said yesterday.


Impressive: The Penang Internatinal Airport with new roofs shaped like waves

Fazil said the Pinang leaves and wavy design to make it look like sea waves, were incorporated in the airport’s roof.

He said work on the roof design was almost 70% completed and the airport’s expansion and renovation progress was on schedule.

Fazil said the reported leak on the roof after a downpour recently had been rectified.

The RM250mil expansion and renovation work at the airport is scheduled to be completed by June next year.

The arrival and departure facility was opened to airport users last month to ensure smoother passenger pick-up and drop-off.

Upon completion, there will also be a multi-storey car park and hotel block which will be built via open tender.

Both the car park, comprising 1,218 bays, and the hotel will not exceed 30m in height as per the Civil Aviation Department’s (DCA) Obstruction Clearance Limitations.

And they plan to spend RM4 billion for a "ow cost" facility at KLIA, but they are budgeting a fraction of that towards a "regular" airport to make it look low cost. Go figure...

Present design of roof being changed from original plan as below. I hope that they will cover all terminal with WAVE roof as below. Then the outcome results will be better and incorporate with natural sun light.

The management should paid attention on details like black water piping and places ugly flower pots should be re-do.

Just need to do touch up and it will be fine.
