KUALA LUMPUR: KXP Airportcity Holdings Sdn Bhd, the Kedah-owned company tasked with the development of the Kulim International Airport, has furnished the Transport Ministry with two feasibility study reports for the project.

Transport Minister Anthony Loke said, in a written parliamentary reply dated June 12, that consultants appointed to carry out the National Airports Strategic Plan (NASP) are going through the technical and commercial reports on the feasibility of the Kulim airport project.

“The findings will be announced once the NASP study concludes,” he said.

Loke added that the NASP study, which began in 2022, is expected to conclude by the end of the year.

The study is will determine the direction of airports in the country in relation to infrastructure and physical development, airspace requirements as well as the economic and strategic aspects, based on accurate data.

Loke was responding to a question from Afnan Hamimi Taib Azamudden (PN-Alor Setar) on the status of the NASP study for the Kedah Aerotropolis and when this is expected to be completed.

On March 15, Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor had reportedly said that the state needed MOT’s approval before it could proceed with land acquisition works for the airport project.

He also said that the Kedah Aerotropolis Master Plan Report was submitted on Jan 18, 2023.
