Not only immigration, but also check-in.

 

One way to solve that is by creating another entrance/exit point on the opposite part of this theoretical klia2B. Can check Jeddah new terminal masterplan for a similar concept.

 

Doing this actually opens the possibility of having a different operator (not MAHB) operating klia2B ;)

 

 

S-APS-Jeddah-King-Abdulaziz-Internationa

 

White is Phase 1 for Operator A. Midfield terminal is Phase 2 while the last part is Phase 3.

 

Phase 2 and 3, theoretically, though not ideal, can be operated by different operators since Phase 3 can be accessible by road separately from Phase 1.

Penang airport horrible, laments AirAsia boss
 

Penang airport is horrible. I feel sorry for the state Goverment. They have done such a good job on tourism. Yet we can’t expand. And queues are horrible as airport poorly designed. Zero plane for LCC. So many LCC airlines now. And airport tax is RM 75 . Shocking

He only make noise now just because the airport infrastructure hampers his expansion plan. PIA is actually operating above the designed capacity, with air asia operating model, such thing is unavoidable.

 

but then, it is also good to see him bugging the government to speed p the PIA expansion plan, but i do think his master plan is to lobby for the LCC terminal other than expanding the current terminal building.

:)One wonders who they'd be fooling. Where was their noble spirit when they happily charged the klia2 fee? Or the ridiculous credit card charges?

PETALING JAYA: AirAsia Group Bhd will remove the processing fee for customers who pay either through online banking and credit card from October onwards.

 

 
Tan Sri probably read your previous reply here and decided to restore nobility :D

More like responding to MAVCOM's requirements ;)

 

Remind me again, why do we need less regulation (and be more business friendly) in the aviation industry? :)

I think he only did so due to Bank Negara ruling. He doesn't give two forks about MavComm. He went on Twitter to rant on MavComm for past few days. No surprise from TF.

 

However, there are still terms and condition: Those using Union Pay (RM 16 per guest per booking)and direct debit banking payment options (RM 4 per guest per booking) are still subject to  processing fee.

I can understand why there was a klia2 fee but having to pay a fee for paying them is a mystery to me. Good thing they abolished the klia2 fee some time ago and incorporate it into their base fare.

 

It is a step in the right direction as far as unreasonable charges is concerned.

Two sides to a coin...both airports can feed airasia numbers vice versa, other side TF being selfish himself wanting to keep all the pax to himself. Oh, love him, hate him at the same time.

Still find it puzzling both have no airside connection.

Well, Malindo moved from klia2 to KLIA when they started code sharing and interlining with other FSCs. So klia2 is simply too onerous for such ops.

 

Didn't MAHB start an airside bus service between the two terminals?

They have already stated in their statement - spending a lot of money on integration is wasteful because the potential extra business to klia2 is small. Money is better spent on improvements to existing sub standard facilities.


AirAsia risks more fines for violation
