^^ a budget terminal should looks like that. One do not expect floor to ceiling glass and timber ceilings. At least we have granite flooring. Some terminals have ceramic tiles! ;)
Some airport hardly has floor........(experience travelling to Nigeria)

I hear you White_sox, I've been to "international airports", which look worse and are no where as big or well equiped as the LCC terminal. Try travelling to Eastern Europe, Zagreb and Sarajevo airport seems smaller than the Malaysian LCCT, with no plasma's, a on small cafe, this LCC terminal even has a McD's.

Malaysia opens Asia's first low-cost carrier terminal

March 24 2006


NATIONAL carrier Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and budget airline AirAsia Bhd have been urged to work together to bring more people into the country.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said both airlines can be a "champion" in their respective market segment.



"The two airlines are competing for different purposes. AirAsia is competing to be the best in the low-cost carrier (LCC) segment and MAS as a full-service carrier (FSC). Both airlines have to do their best in their respective market," he told a news conference after opening Asia's first LCC terminal at the KL International Airport (LCCT-KLIA) in Sepang yesterday.

He added that tourism is a major income earner for the country, and attracting tourists is a top priority which is only possible with the two airlines operating and working together.

Abdullah also said that MAS and AirAsia are still in discussions on the rationalisation of the domestic sector and is confident that both airlines can reach a win-win situation or "smart partnership".

The Prime Minister has given the two airlines until Monday to submit their plan under the Government's domestic air rationalisation policy.

The Government is of the view that the rationalisation process of the domestic flights sector is needed to ensure the long-term success of MAS and AirAsia.

Meanwhile, Abdullah expressed satisfaction with the new LCCT-KLIA, but warned that maintenance on the airport must be a continuous process.

"Our (Malaysians) maintenance culture is poor. This shouldn't be. These facilities are for all and must always be functional, safe and comfortable," he said.

He added that some degree of rivalry is to be expected between the LCCT-KLIA and the Singapore budget airline terminal at Changi, which is due to open in two days.

Also present at the event was Datuk Tony Fernandes, AirAsia group chief executive officer.

Fernandes said it is AirAsia's intention from day one to work with MAS.

"I think I have a good relationship with the CEO (chief executive officer) of MAS (Idris Jala). Let's see (what the restructuring of the domestic routes will be). I always believe in a win-win situation and that we (AirAsia and MAS) can help each other tremendously.

"A strong MAS is good for AirAsia and a strong AirAsia is good for MAS," he said.
