Penang International Airport Expansion: Tender process set to begin soon


For illustration only

The tender process for the Penang International Airport (PIA) expansion and upgrading works will commence soon following the Federal Government’s approval of the plan recently.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said with the approval from the Cabinet, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) could start the tender process for the appointment of contractors for the PIA expansion and upgrading project.

“The project is expected to start in the third quarter of this year.

“In the meantime, the Penang government will continue its discussion with MAHB concerning technical issue compliance.

“Both the discussion with the state government and the commencement of the tender process can be done concurrently,” Chow told the media today after being asked about the latest development of the PIA expansion and upgrading project.

On Feb 27, Transport Minister Anthony Loke told the press that the Federal Government has approved the RM1 billion worth of PIA’s expansion and upgrade, which will be handled by MAHB.

He was quoted by the media as saying that the actual figures (cost) would only be determined after the tender process as there are also plans to expand and upgrade the facilities and infrastructure near the airport.

    Don’t expect too much from MAHB, the operator of KLIA, the 8th worst airport in Asia….

    The design of the 3rd and 4th terminals og spore Changi airports is really great, achieving 60 – 70% similarity is already considered very good
