Tune Hotels Group, which is building a new Tune Hotels at klia2 in Sepang, has yet to decide whether to maintain its existing budget hotel at the current low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) once the new one is up.
But for now it is business as usual, said its CEO Mark Lankester.
Mudajaya Group Bhd on Monday announced it won a RM65 million contract from TP Sepang Sdn Bhd, a member of Tune Group Co, to build the new Tune Hotels, which is expected to be completed by Nov 22, 2013.
"We are developing a brand new 400-room Tune Hotels at the new klia2. Mudajaya has been selected as the main contractor," Lankester told SunBiz via email.
He said while no firm decision has been made on the hotel at the current LCCT, the group is aware that klia2 is designed to cater to 30 million passengers, expandable to 45 million passengers.
"With that substantial number, we may require both hotels to cater to overall passenger needs.
"We will continue to operate the Tune Hotels at LCCT to look after our guests up until the time that the new klia2 hotel is up and operating," Lankester added.
The budget hotel chain now has 25 hotels in five countries, namely Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and the UK.
