New Sepang LCCT International Arrival Hall

If you are a frequent flyer using the LCCT, you would be happy to know about the terminal being expanded to cater to increased passenger load. Even on non-peak times, the LCCT can be crowded as shown in the picture below..

According to The Star, THE new international arrival hall at the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) at Sepang in Selangor will open for operation on Dec 15, weeks ahead of its original scheduled date.

The hall is part of the RM160mil new wing constructed under the LCCT expansion plan.

The whole wing is also expected to be fully ready for operation earlier than the original completion date of March 15 next year.
The extension adds another 32,000sq m of floor-space to the existing 28,000sq m available.

Check-in counters will be increased to 117 from 72 and will be able to handle a passenger load of 2200 passengers as opposed to the old number of 600. There will be six baggage carousels. Luggage pickup will be a less time-consuming affair for travellers.

Travellers can also expect more retail and food and beverage outlets. There will also be shower and surau facilities. The waiting area will also be increased to cater to 600 seats.

Besides the AirAsia domestic flights and the AirAsia X international services to Thailand, Indonesia and Australia, other airlines using the LCCT are the Cebu Pacific Airways of the Philippines and the Tiger Airways of Singapore.

In March next year, AirAsia X is scheduled to start operating the London Stansted-Kuala Lumpur route from the LCCT.

As for public transport, eight bus companies link the LCCT to Kuala Lumpur, Klang, Shah Alam, Seremban, Malacca, Ipoh and Genting. There are also ample taxi services.

Exciting times ahead for all.
