Sultan Mahmud airport to be upgraded: Terengganu Mentri Besar

The Terengganu state government is planning to upgrade some of the facilities at Sultan Mahmud Airport, here to provide more conducive environment for passengers.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman said the state government was currently in the process of preparing the proposal to upgrade the facilities including to build refuelling area at the airport.

"In fact, we will also increase the capacity of cargo facilities that will certainly give more benefits to airlines operation.

"We also want to increase the number of kiosks and outlets inside airport terminal so that more branded items can be sold," he told reporters after sending off the second group of 270 pilgrims from Terengganu to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the airport, here today.

He however stressed that the overall cost for upgrading works had not been decided yet.

Elaborating further, Ahmad Razif said the state government would be building a fast food with drive-through restaurant called T-Food near the airport.

"T stands for Terengganu, which will be serving the state's traditional food like nasi dagang, ikan celup tepung and keropok lekor.

"The restaurant will boost the state's economy and provide jobs for the locals," he said.
