The present LCCT was opened in 2006 and can handle up to 7 million passengers per year. In the immediate future, airlines currently using it will move to Terminal 2 whilst a replacement building is constructed which can handle more passengers and provide a better experience for those passing through.
Terminal 2 is to be adapted to handle these carriers and the demands of their schedules in anticipation of the temporary move.
The Budget Terminal currently serves Berjaya Air, Firefly, SEair, Cebu Pacific and Tiger Airways. It is expected that the new terminal will be ready during 2014.
