PUTRAJAYA, Apr 12 – Runway 3 of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang will be closed for a month-long comprehensive runway maintenance works starting on May 11 this year.
Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) managing director Datuk Badlisham Ghazali said the runway would be closed until June 7 for the maintenance works in accordance with its Runway Sustainability Master Plan.
