Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT)
KLIA Low Cost Carrier Terminal

The Low cost carrier terminal (LCCT) is a separate terminal at Kuala Lumpur International Airport to cater for the growing number of users of low cost airlines, such as AirAsia.

Before the terminal used as a terminal for low cost airlines, the LCCT was used for cargo purposes.

The 36,000 square meters (390,000 sq ft) terminal is designed and built to suit the low cost carrier business model that requires only basic terminal amenities.

As requested by the

As low cost terminal, the terminal does not provide :

1) No aerobridges.
2) No transfer facilities like those found at the main terminal.

LCCT Terminal has no rail link with the main terminal, passengers who need to make transfers to the main terminal need to clear immigration, collect their luggage, clear customs, make their way to the main terminal and re-checkin with their respective airline.

LCCT is located on the opposite side of the apron from the Main Terminal Building, near the air cargo area. LCCT is about 2 km from the Main Terminal Building in direct distance, but by road is about 16 km.

The current Low Cost Carrier Terminal is a temporary solution for the increasing demand of no-frills airline passengers. Therefore, Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad has plans to build a new permanent LCC terminal which can accommodate 45 million passengers per year.[21] In the meantime, the airport operator decided to expand the current terminal to keep up with the increasing demand. The new arrival hall was first open on 15 December 2008.[22] This airport was the first airport to have separation between normal carriers and low cost carrier.
The terminal is due to be replaced by a new low cost carrier terminal, klia2, whose opening has been postponed several times due to various reasons. The operator has not given a new date when the terminal is expected to be operational.[23]
The gates in LCCT have letter prefix of P for domestic departures and T for international departures. However this is not always followed depending on aircraft parking position and there are temporary immigration booths in domestic departure gates.

 Tiger Airways of Singapore

February 2008 Low Cost Carrier Terminal-KLIA (LCCT-KLIA) welcomed Tiger Airways, the second fully foreign-owned low cost carrier to utilize the terminal since it opened in March 2006.

The low-cost carrier commences daily flights on the Singapore - Kuala Lumpur vice versa route, utilizing A320 type of aircraft with a 180-seat configuration. Flight TR148 will depart Singapore at 10.50am and will arrive at Kuala Lumpur at 11.45am while Flight TR149 leaves Kuala Lumpur at 12.15pm and will arrive in Singapore at 1.10pm.

Tiger Airways will operate from the LCCT-KLIA as the basic terminal facilities and amenities are in line with Tiger Airways streamlined operations model. With the inclusion of Tiger Airways, KLIA s list of international airlines stands at 56.

This low cost service will further strengthen air connectivity between Malaysia and Singapore as it complements the current service by Malaysia Airlines and Singapore Airlines.

LCC Terminal-KLIA  Low Cost Carrier Terminal

The Low Cost Carrier Terminal is specifically built at KL International Airport to cater to the growing passengers of the Low Cost Airlines, especially the passengers of Air Asia. 

The LCCT is about 20km from KLIA Main Terminal Building (MTB) and can be accessed via the KLIA circular or airport cargo road.

Construction of the LCC Terminal began on June 2005 at an approximate cost of RM 108 million.

The 35,290 square meters terminal is designed and built to suit the Low Cost Carrier (LCC) business model that requires basic terminal facilities and amenities.

Thus it doesn't require travellators, escalators and aerobridges to be provided at the terminal.

The operation of the LCC Terminal is supported by the existing parking apron and additional infrastructures such as car parks, surface access and other utilities. This terminal is capable of handling 10million passengers a year and there is scope for further expansion of up to 15 million passengers, if required in the future.

The LCC Terminal began full operational on 23rd March 2006. This terminal is managed and operated by Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd.
