SUBANG: Transport Minister Wee Ka Siong has reiterated that the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang remains under the management and operational oversight of Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB).
“MAHB is still authorised to operate the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang, so there is no change in that.
“Many people are of the view that the airport needs to be upgraded as every country has a city airport,” Wee said at the launch of new airline SKS Airways today.
He added that the rights and operations of the airport remain as stipulated under the lease agreement with MAHB, where MAHB would operate, manage and maintain the airport, including occupying, using and controlling the airport until 2034 (under the operating agreement) and 2067 (under the lease agreement).
SKS Airways will offer flights to Pangkor Island from Jan 26, Pulau Redang from Jan 31, and Pulau Tioman and Johor Bahru in the second quarter of the year.
With the commencement of the three routes, there would be 12 scheduled flights per day at the full capacity of 228 passengers with all-in fares starting from RM160 one way.
