KLIA to convert low-cost terminal to cargo

KUALA Lumpa International Airport (KLIA) is to convert its low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) into an airfreight terminal.

Announcing the conversion, transport minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha, said the change would increase KLIA’s cargo capacity by 320,335 metric tons a year.

“The increased capacity will be able to meet the requirement of companies which have shown an interest to use the terminal,” he said.

Kong said that the use of the terminal for low-cost carriers was only ever going to be temporary and that a larger LCCT will be constructed by 2012, when the current LCCT will then be transferred to air cargo.
