The Malaysian Immigration Department is going to trial on-board immigration checks to ease queues at the Immigration counters at KLIA’s LCCT.

Passengers travelling to Kuala Lumpur International Airport’s (KLIA) Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) will be able to complete immigration checks before they land, to reduce queuing times in the terminal.

The pilot project is expected to start in December and the on-board checks will be available on flights considered low-risk.

This service is the latest improvement to be made to enhance the level of service offered to passengers travelling to and from the LCCT, with new navigation systems, self-service check-in systems, an increased number of counters and support personnel having recently been introduced.

The existing LCCT will be replaced with the state-of-the-art KLIA2 low-cost carrier terminal in early 2013.
