SITE SELECTION OF klia2
14 December 2011
The present site for klia2 was selected based on the recommendation in the National Airport Master Plan (NAMP) (2008) after a detailed and comprehensive study involving all stakeholders including Ministry of Transport, Department of Civil Aviation, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Home Affairs and all airlines. The original KLIA Master Plan was reviewed so as to take into account the latest development in the aviation industry such as growth of low fare airlines and their specific requirements, rationalisation of routes, liberalisation of air service agreements and aviation security requirements. Major issues such as location, soil condition, airside/landside connectivity and existing infrastructure were also taken into consideration in the study.
This NAMP has superseded the original KLIA Master Plan (1992).
