Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob declared open the new state-of-the-art Kuala Lumpur Air Traffic Control Centre (KLATCC) that provides air traffic services for West Malaysia’s entire airspace.
It will improve the efficiency of the nation’s air traffic services which also includes coordinating the Aeronautical Search and Rescue Centre and the Joint Airspace Management Coordination Centre (JAMCC) so that they can be on par with developed countries.
Ismail Sabri said the KLATCC, which was a project worth RM650.365 million under the 11th Malaysia Plan, was also timely as it is expected to further assist recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.
The KLATCC building, inspired by the ‘wau’ (Malaysian giant kite) design, houses the Kuala Lumpur Air Flight Information (KL FIR) air traffic operations centre which is the backbone of the country’s air traffic control functions as well as the search and rescue centre.
Ismail Sabri added that the new KLATCC was an example of the Malaysian Family concept as it was built on local talent and expertise.
