MAHB to commercialise land around airports

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) plans to commercially utilise its reserved land around airports, especially the land around the KL International Airport (KLIA), with the view to increasing its income.

General Manager of MAB Land Management Muhd Najib Mohd Rawi said apart from being developed into oil palm and coconut plantations, the land will be also developed with commercial buildings to house offices and industries.

“We have seen in overseas, the land near airports have very high value due to the easily available transportation facility for the marketing of products,” he told reporters after launching the Smart Programme organised by MAB at the Pengkalan Chepa secondary school in Kota Baru today.

Muhd Najib said KLIA had reserved land amounting to 7,200 hectares with a large part of it planted with oil palm besides housing the Sepang International Circuit, hotels and commercial buildings.

“The available land will be commercialised based on the agreement set by KLIA given its increased value now,” he said.

As for the Sultan Abdul Aziz Subang Airport, it has been developed into the country’s aerospace centre besides being a training centre for flight trainings, as well as the repair centre for helicopters and aircraft and it also has several office buildings.
