Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL), the operator of KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit high-speed train services, was named the Best Operator (Railway) at the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) Gala Dinner and Industry Award 2017.
The awards ceremony was organised by SPAD in conjunction with its annual symposium, themed “Reimagining Transportation: Sustainable Mobility”.
Last year, ERL received the awards for Best Customer Service and Best Safety Practices.
ERL executive chairman Tan Sri Mohd Nadzmi Mohd Salleh accepted the award from Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri.
Mohd Nadzmi said, “We are honoured to receive this award and we would like to thank SPAD for this recognition.
“It will certainly inspire us to work even harder and continue our commitment to provide the highest level of service to our passengers.
“They can look forward to improved services, better travel experience and more value-for- money deals in the near future.”
ERL purchased six new trains manufactured by CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles Company Ltd; two for KLIA Ekspres and four for KLIA Transit.
The new trains are undergoing intensive testing and commissioning.
ERL also received the Outstanding Green Air-Rail Transport Award at the Malaysia Canada Business Council 25th Anniversary Business Excellence Awards Gala Dinner last May.
