KLIA 2 Delays Self Baggage Drop Machines Implementation
Yesterday, AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernanandes complains about Malaysia Airports delays on the Self Baggage Drop Machines on his Facebook Page. He posted the statement together with Self Baggage Drop Machines pictures from airports of Singapore, Indonesia Senai. He wrote the following on his Faceboook Page.
‘Honestly am really fed up with malaysian airports. They promised us bag drop in July. 30 machines. Zero and now they say no budget!!!!!!!! @aireenomar had offered to pay two years ago. But they said they wanted to do it. Other photos are singapore Indonesia and Senai. Senai in Johor is fantastic. Private entrepreneurial hard working. Don’t behave like a monopoly. We need more senai airports in malaysia. Create more entrepreneurs. More economic activity. Hope the new chairman and Azli will sort out the mess. Mavcom have failed’

For your information, Malaysia Airports spent RM 30 million to refurbished 131 restrooms in KLIA. You can read the article from NST here.
KLIA also dropped its ranking in Skytrax’s World’s Top 100 Airports in 2017 from 24th position in 2016 to 34th position this year. Singapore’s Changi Airport took the first place for the fifth year! You read the article from World Airports Award here.
For those who are frequent traveller with AirAsia, you do know how inconvenient to queue up just to drop the baggage. Regardless whether you check in or not, you still need to queue from 10 minutes or more depending on timing and season.
The purpose of Self Baggage Drop Machines are to minimise the queuing time and it makes it more convenient for travellers flying with AirAsia.
