PUTRAJAYA — June 21, 2016: Using another name for klia2, the official brand of the KL International Airport 2, violates aviation laws.

Thus the campaign by low-cost carrier AirAsia to brand klia2 as LCCT2 is against the regulations of the International Air Transport Association and International Civil Aviation Organisation.

“We cannot name a terminal at our whim and fancy as it is a registered name and the government named it as klia2, not MAHB.

“However, we cannot prevent them from calling it LCCT2 as it is freedom of speech but they cannot put it on their tickets or counter notice board,” said Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) Managing Director Datuk Badlisham Ghazali today after he had accompanied 108 children of tithe recipients from Sepang for Aidilfitri shopping at the Alamanda Mall here.

On complaints about cracks on the runway and pools at the tarmac, Badlisham admitted that the problems persist until today.

“But unlike before, the damage has been reduced and we are still doing the repairs.”

Commenting on the klia2 development plan, he said the terminal was built following discussions with stakeholders such as AirAsia, just like the low-cost carrier terminal before.

“Changi Airport and Don Muaeng also have budget airline terminals, but they do not call them low-cost terminals… They named them terminals 1, 2 and 3.” — Bernama
