The Cabinet has approved the expansion of the Penang International Airport (PIA) which is estimated to cost RM1bil, says Anthony Loke.

The Transport Minister said the green light was received during a Cabinet meeting last week.

He added that Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) would be in charge of the tender process and financing of the project.

The expansion of PIA would increase the terminal’s annual handling capacity from 6.5 million passengers to 12 million.
