Sabah wants KKIA problems sorted out

Posted by Smookiekins On 11/01/2012 01:01:00 PM

The Sabah Cabinet wants airport operator Malaysia Airports Bhd (MAB) to resolve any problem at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA).

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman said the state Cabinet had explicitly told senior MAB officials that incidents such as the recent blackout of KKIA runway lights must never recur.

“We are extremely concerned that this incident resulted in the suffering of some 6,000 passengers. This is not good for the government, Sabah and MAB,” he said following the weekly Cabinet meeting here yesterday.

At the meeting, Musa and other state ministers were briefed by MAB chairman Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad Abdul Majid and its senior general manager Datuk Azmi Murad about the failure of KKIA runway lights last Thursday and until 10pm the next day that disrupted night flight operations at the nations second busiest airport.

“The blame cannot be entirely placed on MAB but it should have been more prepared.

“Update those stranded and don't leave them in the dark. At the very least provide them with basic things like drinking water.”

Bashir said the KKIA runaway had to be shutdown for safety reasons.

He said MAB followed every procedure in responding to the incident and apologised for not being able to respond fast enough.

  2. Hopefully such incident will never reoccur in the future.

  3. Diharap pada masa hadapan masalah tersebut tidak berulang lagi
