SEPANG, March 9 : Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) will build its first outdoor planespotter observation deck at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in hopes of turning the airport and its surroundings into a tourist attraction.
MAHB chief executive officer (CEO), Raja Azmi Raja Nazuddin, said in a statement today that construction of the deck named “Anjung Spotter” is scheduled to begin this month and finished in April.
He said it will be built just outside the perimeter of the airport, adjacent to one of KLIA’s 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.
Raja Azmi said the outdoor planespotter observation deck is a symbol of the organisation’s commitment to elevating one’s airport experience.
He said Anjung Spotter 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.
