MAHB on high alert for extreme weather

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 9): Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has put its maintenance team on high alert after inter-monsoon weather conditions damaged the roof of its Airport Management Centre (AMC) and an outlet at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport domestic departure main terminal in Sepang.

In a statement yesterday, MAHB said its team is now in the midst of repairing the damage and will be reinforcing the drainage system in anticipation of continuing heavy rains.

This came after several areas in and around KLIA took a hit from the extreme weather conditions, since the start of the inter-monsoon season. There have flash floods around the perimeter road near Runway 2 and fallen trees along the terminal roads, besides the roof leakages.

“The airport maintenance team will also continue to be on high alert, as according to the Meteorological Department, the inter-monsoon season will continue until early November when thunderstorms with heavy rainfall and strong winds are expected.

"We wish to remind the public to be more careful on the road and to observe traffic rules and avoid parking by the roadside to ensure your safety. We have ample designated parking areas at the terminal buildings, as well as the long-term car park for your convenience,” MAHB added.
