SEPANG: Malaysia will have the world’s first mega terminal dedicated to and designed for low cost carriers, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Scheduled to be completed in 2012, the terminal would be known as KLIA2, he said.

The RM2bil project, with a capacity to handle 30 million passengers, was due to be completed by the end of 2011 but was delayed.

The new terminal includes the development of the runway, taxiway, parking bays, terminal, control tower, fire station and related facilities like hotel, retail shops and food and beverage outlets.

The project will also link the main terminal of KLIA to the KLIA2 via a 2km extension of the Express Rail Link.

The existing LCCT has already breached its initial capacity for handling 10 million passengers.
