LCCT Airport for Sarawak?

Low-cost carrier AirAsia is mulling to have a dedicated low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sarawak.

Its chief executive officer Aireen Omar said the company felt that there is a lot of growth potential in Sarawak, besides wanting to assist the state in building its air connectivity.

According to her, the routes that the company would be looking at were all those that the company had already established in its group networks, adding that it was just a matter of connecting those points in Asean, North Asia, India and Australia.

Besides wanting to see Sarawak become one of the key regional hubs for the region, Aireen said AirAsia was also committed to seeing that its business in Sarawak grow not only through international connectivity but also intra-East Malaysia connectivity.

Aireen said the current airport has reached its capacity and AirAsia is trying to find ways on how we can expand and build a dedicated low cost carrier terminal so that we can grow the business in Sarawak.

She declined to reveal the location of the LCCT, but added that it was depending on the Sarawak government.
