KUALA LUMPUR, April 18 (Bernama) -- KLIA2, the world's largest purpose-built terminal for low-cost carriers, has obtained the Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) from UEMC-Bina Puri JV, the main terminal building contractors.
The issuance of the CCC not only certifies the safety of the project but is also a go-ahead for all relevant authorities to occupy the terminal building including airlines that can start operating from the new hybrid airport.
"We obtained the CCC yesterday, April 17," Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) Senior General Manager (Operations Services) Datuk Azmi Murad told BERNAMA. The CCC must comply with the Fire and Rescue Department, Sepang Municipal Council and Indah Water Konsortium Sdn Bhd (IWK) specifications.
MAHB conducted a mock run of the Operational Readiness and Airport Transfer (ORAT), which is a trial to stimulate functionality and operational aspects, since early February. The final ORAT will take place on April 30.
Flight operations at KLIA2 will begin on May 2 while the current low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) is scheduled to close on May 9.
Malindo Air, Cebu Pacific Air, Tiger Airways Singapore, Lion Air, Indonesia's Mandala Airlines have announced that they will begin operations at KLIA2 by May 2. On April 15, AirAsia confirmed it would join the bandwagon and operate out of KLIA2 by May 9.
