The new Malaysian Airport, Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2), is built to be the Next Generation Hub – International Airport Hub – that allows seamless connectivity for both local and international low-cost plus full-service carriers for Malaysia. The KLIA2 airport is built to cater for the explosive growth in low-cost travel industry. It is planned to accommodate 45 million passengers a year. The KLIA2 is designed and built with bigger capacity and superior facilities, replacing the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) which was having capacity constraints and growth limitations. The KLIA2 terminal is measured to be at least 257,000 sqm, with 60 gates, 8 remote stands, 80 aerobridges, plus a retail space of 32,000 sqm to accommodate 225 retail outlets. Costing around 4 billion Malaysian Ringgit (RM), the KLIA2 was scheduled to be opened on 28 June,2013. Due to construction delay, the new KLIA2 terminal is officially opened on May 2014.
