KKIA’s upgrade on right track
Tuesday December 11, 2007


KOTA KINABALU: The new international airport terminal here is set to open by April and travellers can look forward to less “inconvenience and congestion”.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said Malaysia Airports Bhd planned to use the terminal for boarding and arrivals by Jan 9 before making it fully operational for check-in.

“Once the new terminal is ready, the old terminal will be closed for upgrading,” Chan told reporters during a working visit here yesterday.

progress of the new airport terminal in Kota Kinabalu yesterday.
Accompanying him are Sabah MCA chief Datuk Edward Khoo (right) and other
VIPs.




The new terminal complex, to be connected with the old one, is among a massive Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) upgrade project involving runway extension and a new low-cost terminal. The RM1.4bil project is scheduled for completion by May 2009.

“We thank the public for bearing with the inconvenience. It is not easy carrying out major upgrading works on an airport that is operational,” Chan said, adding that KKIA is the second busiest airport in the country after KLIA.

The minister said that once completed, the upgraded airport would have state-of-the-art facilities to meet Sabah’s needs.

“Overall, the project is about 8.4% ahead of time though there are some delays in specific areas. But it will not affect the completion date,” he said when thanking the state government for resolving the Sri Tanjung airport squatter problem.

On MAB’s decision to move operations of all airlines to the new terminal once completed in 2009, Chan said AirAsia’s request to remain at Terminal Two would be considered.

“They have written in. We have to hear them out before we make any decision,” he said, adding that the new complex when completed could handle the needs of all airlines and would be convenient in terms of operations.

KK’s NEW TERMINAL GOES LIVE IN APRIL
11th December, 2007

on the progress of the airport upgrading work.


KOTA KINABALU: The new terminal at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport here is scheduled to be fully operational by April next year.

And, by then, it is hoped that the current “inconvenience and congestion” will reduce markedly for travellers.

Speaking to reporters during a visit to the airport yesterday, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said Malaysia Airports Berhad (MAB) is planning to use it for boarding and arrivals by January 9 before making it fully operational for passengers to check in at the new terminal block.

He also said once the new terminal is ready, the current old terminal will be closed fully to allow for upgrading work.

This new terminal complex which is to be connected with the old terminal block is among a massive Kota Kinabalu International Airport upgrading project involving runway extension and a new low cost terminal among others at a cost of RM1.4bil.

The entire project is scheduled for completion by May in 2009.

“We thank the public for putting up with the inconvenience as it is not easy carrying out major upgrading works on an airport that is operational,” Chan said, adding that Kota Kinabalu airport was second busiest in the country after KLIA.

He added that once completed, the upgraded airport would have state of the art facilities that will meet Sabah’s needs.

“Overall, the project is about 8.4% ahead of time though there are some delays in specific areas but it would not affect the completion date,” he said, thanking the state government in resolving the Sri Tanjung airport squatter problem.

On MAB’s decision to move the operations of all airlines to the new terminal once completed in 2009, he said they would be looking into AirAsia’s request to remain at Terminal Two instead of moving to the new terminal complex.

“They have written in. We have to hear them out before we make any decision,” he said, adding that the new complex when completed will be able to handle the needs of all airlines and would be convenient in terms of operations. Also present was Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department Datuk Edward Khoo.

Thanks for the updates nazrey. The airport looks great and it's good to see that they're extending the runway.
