THE progress of the proposed Kulim International Airport (KXP) has not gone down well with MCA.

“Malaysia needs more airports but not a new cargo airport larger than Singapore’s Changi Airport sitting a mere 53km away from the second busiest airport (Penang) in terms of cargo tonnage, ” said MCA vice-president Datuk Tan Teik Cheng in a statement.
