Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2
klia2 is the largest terminal in the world built to accommodate the development of low cost airline and has the capacity to handle up to 45 million passengers a year. This makes the overall capacity of the airport to 70 million passengers a year, where the main terminal
KLIA is capable of handling up to 25 million passengers a year. The subsequent increase in capacity can be picked Malaysia as a hub for tourism and transit in the region. Currently, KLIA is connected to over 160 destinations worldwide and nearly 60 airlines operating in this airport. Klia2 development has set the benchmark for the terminals of its kind in the future and in turn lifted Malaysia international arena.
klia2 developed as a national infrastructure to meet the needs of airlines, governments and the public, and designed and built with world-class facilities that make it a passenger-friendly terminal. The terminal complementary capacities and facilities available at the KLIA main terminal.
The terminal building is also seen as contributing to the development of the national economy and create more jobs. Its development may also increase tourism by attracting more airlines and more tourists to the country.
Cheap flights sector began to grow rapidly in the Asian region over the last decade, and in 2002 Malaysia Airports has given way to low-cost airlines to operate at KLIA main terminal. However, the low-cost airlines operating at that time require different facilities than the existing facilities at KLIA's main terminal was built for premier airline operations.
Furthermore, the low-cost sector is growing very rapidly and the need to meet this development is becoming increasingly important. Hence, Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) was built in 2006 to meet the needs of the business model and airline operations
In the four years since it opened in late 2010, LCCT has reached its maximum handling capacity of 15 million passengers a year. In 2013, LCCT has handled over 21.8 million passengers. LCCT opening visits have contributed to the development rapid low-cost airline sector that we have witnessed over the last decade.
We have also witnessed the evolution of the business model of the airline sector. At first, only one destination flights to the destinations provided. Current exchange services to various destinations including travel far and premier-class services with low waiting room facility
began serving premier. Following this, the airport infrastructure must have the ability to accommodate the changing needs of low-cost airlines.
Thus, the development klia2 is critical in ensuring the capacity to accommodate the growing number of low cost airline passengers. The terminal also provides the capacity to accommodate the increased number of passengers at the airport as a whole.
The terminal is designed to be expandable to accommodate the increasing number of passengers and the diverse needs of operating models
