MAHB to open private Covid-19 screening facilities at KLIA

KUALA LUMPUR (June 29): Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) will open private Covid-19 screening facilities at eight locations of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) from July 2021. 

In a statement today, MAHB said five of the screening facilities will be located at the KLIA main terminal, while another three will be at the klia2 terminal, equipped with comfortable lounges and seating areas for passengers while they wait for their test results.

“The new facilities are among several improvements which Malaysia Airports is implementing to enhance the comfort and convenience of travellers while going through the necessary travel safety protocols at the airports,” it said. 

MAHB group chief executive officer (CEO) Datuk Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh said the group had engaged closely with the respective authorities to ensure the appointed service provider is authorised by the Ministry of Health (MoH) to perform such services.

“We are certain that the new facilities will go a long way in spurring demand for travel once the borders are reopened. 

“The new facilities are expected to cater to around 40,000 passengers daily, which will sufficiently cater to international arrivals at both terminals as traffic recovers,” he said.
