SEPANG: The RM3.9bil-KLIA2 is expected to be completed by May 2013.
"According to our scheduling, it could be ready by May. I have expressed my desire that we should not rush into opening KLIA2 (until ready), said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
"But as a target, I have decided that it should coincide with the date of the opening of KLIA which is June 28 (1998), so hopefully I will have the opportunity to open KLIA2 in June, in my present capacity, my present job," Najib said when launching AirAsia's 1Malaysia aircraft livery at the KLIA Low-Cost Carrier Terminal here Saturday.
AirAsia group chief executive officer Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said the special aircraft livery was part of the airline company's 1Malaysia Integration Program.
"We at AirAsia not only wear our hearts on our sleeves, we proclaim our passion to the Asean skies through the livery of our aircraft.
"Be it the Jalur Gemilang livery of 10 years ago, the Visit Malaysia livery, the Lat livery of 2009 - we dedicated a gallery in the skies to Malaysia's unique diversity and heritage," said Fernandes.
Najib said AirAsia would offer free flights for travel between Peninsular Malaysia and the states of Sabah and Sarawak for a limited time as part of the program, but did not reveal further details.
