The new low-cost terminal, klia2, is likely to receive the Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) and the Operational Readiness and Airport Transfer (ORAT) certification by month-end, says acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein.
He said overall, the airport was now 98% complete, and still remains on track for the May 2 opening.
"All parties are now working together 24/7 to meet this deadline," he told the media in conjunction with his official visit to klia2 here on Tuesday.
Late last month, the joint venture (JV) of UEM Construction Sdn Bhd and Bina Puri Sdn Bhd said the work package for klia2, would be completed by the stipulated deadline of Jan 31, 2014.
The companies said they were "working rigorously" to ensure the physical completion of the work package and obtain the Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) by Jan 31 and the Operational Readiness and Airport Transfer (ORAT) process by Feb 1, 2014.
The RM997 million work package awarded to the JV includes the construction of the main terminal building, satellite building, sky bridge and piers.
Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd aims to open the klia2 for operations on May 2, following the missed completion date of April 30, 2013. – Bernama
