The problematic KLIA Aerotrain replacement is back on track, to ensure that the project is back in operation as per the original schedule of Q1 2025. Travellers will be very pleased that work is proceeding and that the aerotrain between KLIA T1 and the Satellite building will be back in service by early next year.

Under a new agreement, Alstom, the new Aerotrain’s original equipment manufacturer (OEM), will serve as the Project Coordination Lead and be responsible for the coordination works to recommence the project and deliver three new trains and two lines by Q1 2025.

In making this decision, the Board of Malaysia Airports considered two key focus areas, which were (1) keeping to the agreed, fit-for-purpose technology, and (2) ensuring the project can meet the original timeline for the operations of both lines. Alstom  has also been involved in automated people mover installations at global airports such as Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Dubai International Airport (DXB), King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah (JED), and Munich International Airport (MUC).
