A new terminal is expected to be built at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to expand its total capacity to 100 million passengers a year, said Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abd Aziz Kaprawi.

Airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is expected to submit a proposal for the airport’s third terminal in the next 2 to 3 years after detailed studies, he told Malaysian reporters on Malindo Air’s maiden flight to Perth, Australia.
