KUANTAN, Feb 10 — With the fire and rescue system in KLIA 2 now more than 90 per cent completed, the low-cost carrier terminal can begin operations soon.

Fire and Rescue Department director-general Datuk Mohd Nor Ibrahim said observations made at the airport found that the major aspects of fire safety at KLIA 2 had been completed.

“We cannot compromise on the safety aspects, and reports that the safety measures are only 65 per cent completed are not true because to me, more than 90 per cent of the system has been completed.

“I have already informed the transport ministry that for big projects, it is difficult for total completion in the given time. However, the important aspects have been completed,” he said.
