Last Update: 16/01/2019
LANGKAWI, Jan 16 (Bernama) – Langkawi International Airport (LGK) is currently upgrading its air-conditioning system in phases at specific areas of the terminal from now until March 15.
The Airport Manager of LGK, Jefry Ramli said areas that were affected by this upgrading exercise were the check-in counters, customs office, Nooodles Restaurant, international and domestic arrival halls as well as the domestic departure hall.
“This is a follow through from the recently completed expansion project of our terminal. As we are done with the expansion, we are now looking at upgrading the areas that were not involved in the expansion.
“Thus, enhancing the air-conditioning system is our first exercise for 2019 in our bid to provide a comfortable travelling experience to passengers,” he said in a statement here today.
Jefry said after the recent successful expansion project of the terminal, LGK could now cater to four million passengers per annum.
He said hence, the upgrade of the air conditioning system was important to ensure that the airport’s basic facilities were functioning well to meet the increasing number of passengers.
Jefry said as a mitigation measure in ensuring the continual comfort of the passengers during this upgrade, the airport had placed portable air coolers at the affected areas during this upgrading period.
Passengers who required any help could approach the airport's ground team for assistance, said Jefry.
