Nur Jazlan: Changes in demand behind KLIA2 cost increase

KUALA LUMPUR: Changes in demand of the aviation industry are among the reasons for the surge in cost of the KLIA2 project, said Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chairman Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed. 

He said the aviation industry is constantly changing especially in the low-budget travel sector, resulting in the increase of cost and delay of the project. 

"Due to the demands of the aviation industry… the plans for the KLIA2 project have been revised several times," he said at a press conference in Parliament after chairing a three-hour meeting with the Transport Ministry's official, here, on Thursday. 

Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein had said the KLIA2 project was on track with its May 2 deadline and that 98% of the project was completed.
