Artistic rendering of what could be the upcoming RM2 billion New Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) within the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
"This OR another E-shaped design?"

Patchay.Com finds out this week how the "permanent" LCCT by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd may look like (Note: unconfirmed final design).
[Acknowledgement: LKMD Architecture]
To be located less than 2km west of KLIA Main Terminal, the LCCT will be AirAsia's main hub (Asia's largest no-frills carrier) when completed as early as Q4 of 2011.
The initial handling capacity is targeted at 30 million passengers annually, with the potential to expand to 45 million.
A new runway and an extension of the Express Rail Link (ERL) will also be built to connect the new LCCT and KLIA.
(London Bridge is falling down?)
An earlier report suggested that the new terminal will have no aerobridge.

The new LCCT, spread over 150,000 sq metres, would be larger than the Main Terminal with retail and food outlets to ensure passenger comfort.
There are plans for a 6,000-vehicle parking complex, parking bays for 70 planes and an integrated transport hub for buses and taxis.
