SEPANG: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) will build its first outdoor planespotter observation deck at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to turn the airport and its surroundings into a tourist attraction.
MAHB chief executive officer Raja Azmi Raja Nazuddin said that construction of the deck, named Anjung Spotter, is scheduled to begin soon and will be completed in April.
He said it will be built just outside the perimeter of KLIA and adjacent to one of its three runways.
“Planespotters and aviation aficionados will be delighted to know that they will now have a perfect view of aircraft arriving at Runway 32L, allowing them to take great shots,” he said in a statement today.
Raja Azmi said the observation deck is a symbol of the organisation’s commitment to elevating one’s airport experience.
He said it will also be promoted as a must-visit for those arriving at KLIA.
“There are currently many international planespotters who fly to Malaysia to meet up with their counterparts here before going on a photography adventure at the airport.
“The Anjung Spotter will definitely be the next Insta-worthy spot,” he said.
