The new KLIA2 (new Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT)) in Sepang is on track for full operations by April 2013 as confirmed by OSK Research. In a statement note today, based on the report given by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) the construction is now 51.78 per cent complete and the project was 89.9 days ahead of its original works schedule.
“This will provide room for the its existing operations to make the transition to the new terminal,” it said.
The research house said for the first time, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) had organised a site visit for the investment community to witness the progress of construction at KLIA2.
“We note that the upcoming KLIA2, which will be the world’s largest low cost carrier terminal with an annual capacity to handle 45 million passengers, is designed with the flexibility to accommodate future growth and expansion,” it said.
It added that KLIA2 would offer retail space of close to four times that in the current LCCT, and the revenue to be potentially chalked up might amount an additional RM120 million, at the very least.
The response from retailers has been overwhelming, with over 700 applicants eyeing the 225 outlets up for rental.
