The government will proceed with the Penang International Airport (LTAPP) expansion project after the land acquisition process and funding are approved, says Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

He said the government had never cancelled the project but held discussions with the state government to resolve the land issue instead.

“I had a discussion with the Penang Chief Minister in Aug 2020 but we faced some problems that needed to be worked on...many things related to the land need to be done.

“Once the land matters are settled and MAHB ready to pump in the fund, we can kick off the project,“ he told reporters after visiting a sewing workshop organised by the state Community Development Department (Kemas) here today.
