AirAsia expected to keep word on KKIA Terminal 1

Kota Kinabalu: Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri hopes AirAsia will stick to the written decision conveyed to the Transport Ministry "that they will move their flight operations to the Terminal 1 at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA).

He said the terminal, with the state-of-the-art facilities, could fulfil all the needs for commercial flight operations and cater to the needs of up to 14 million passengers.

Abdul Rahim said the transfer of AirAsia's operations to Terminal 1 would provide better flight connectivity to the passengers.

It could also avoid passengers from missing their flight and reduce the cost burden on the passengers in hiring taxis to go to Terminal 2 or being trapped in traffic jams while on transit flight, he said here, Saturday.

Furthermore, he said, all the design and facilities at Terminal 1 such as the aerobridge had been provided as required.

As such, Abdul Rahim said, there was no reason for AirAsia not to move to Terminal 1 which he believed would not adversely affect operations but would probably lead to greater efficiency.
