IRKED BY FLAT RATE FOR KLIA PARK­ING

New Straits Times - - News -

A USER of the Kuala Lumpur In­ter­na­tional Air­port (KLIA) staff park­ing bay has com­plained about the ex­or­bi­tant monthly park­ing fees for staff and air­port ten­ants.

The com­plainant said the fees were in­creased from RM60 (for staff with ba­sic salary of be­low RM1,500) and RM120 (for staff with ba­sic salary of more than RM1,500) to a flat rate of RM160 cur­rently. A spokesman for Malaysia Air­ports Hold­ings Bhd said the is­sue had been ex­plained in a let­ter to staff work­ing at KLIA.

He said the fee in­crease was to en­sure a good ex­pe­ri­ence for mem­bers of the pub­lic who were us­ing KLIA.

He said with the yearly in­crease of pas­sen­ger num­bers at the air­port, park­ing spa­ces had grown scarce.

“As such, we are en­cour­ag­ing staff to park at the Long Term Car Park (LTCP) at the rate of RM45 a month.

“This move will free up the park­ing space at KLIA, thus pro­vid­ing more con­ve­nience to the pub­lic.”

The spokesman said a con­tin­u­ous free shut­tle ser­vice be­tween LTCP and both air­port ter­mi­nals was pro­vided at fiveminute in­ter­vals dur­ing peak hours and ev­ery 10 min­utes dur­ing non-peak hours for the con­ve­nience of the staff.
