About LCCT - KLIA

LOW COST CARRIER TERMINAL

The Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) is specifically built at KL International Airport to cater to the growing number of passengers for low-cost airlines, especially the passengers of Malaysia's first 'no-frills' airline, Air Asia. It is located 20km away from KLIA's Main Terminal Building (MTB). Construction of the LCCT was on a fast-track basis beginning June 2005 at an approximate cost of RM108 million.

The 35,290 square meters of terminal is designed and built to suit the Low Cost Carrier (LCC) business model that requires basic terminal facilities and amenities. With this in mind, the terminal is designed to facilitate the passengers' movement of international and domestic departures/arrivals within a single floor operation area. Thus it doesn't require travellators, escalators and aerobridges.

The operations at LCCT is supported by the existing parking apron and additional infrastructure such as car parks, surface access, kerbside road and other utilities. This terminal is capable of handling 10 million passengers a year and there is room for further expansion of up to 15 million passengers, if required in the future.

LCCT-KLIA opened in 23 March 2006 and it is an extension of the existing facilities of the KLIA. In November 2006, LCCT-KLIA was voted CAPA Low Cost Airport of the Year in the CAPA Aviation Awards for Excellence.
