KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd’s (MAHB) operating agreements (OA) which replaced the airport operator’s previous two OAs with four new OAs – OA for KLIA, Sarawak and Sabah airports, as well as for designated airports in Peninsula Malaysia have been extended until Feb 11, 2069.
Quoting Group chief executive officer Raja Azmi Raja Nazuddin Bernama said, the announcement signified the trust that the government has in MAHB to contribute towards growing the Malaysian aviation industry and developing the country’s economy.
The clustering of airports according to regions included in the new OAs ensures that the operation and management of airports in Malaysia can be made more sustainable in the long term.
Besides, the framework of the new OAs will also provide greater flexibility to MAHB to undertake the necessary development projects or initiatives.
Raja Azmi further added, plans are already in place to replace ageing assets, improve inter-terminal connectivity, increase and optimise airport capacity and to digitalise the airport environment to provide better operational efficiency and improve service levels.
