Malaysia Airports Holding Bhd (MAHB) Keeps Malaysian Up-to-Date with Flood News
“Dear passengers and airport staff, the main federal roads to KLIA from Putrajaya/Cyberjaya/ Dengkil/Banting and Nilai have been closed due to the floods,” announced Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB). MAHB added that KLIA and Klia2 could still be reached via the Elite Highway by exiting at the KLIA toll.
They also stated, “For those coming from within the airport vicinity, you can access the Elite Highway via Serenia City, or use Jalan Pekeliling near Sepang International Circuit (SIC)/Staff Quarters KLIA.”
MAHB have announced that all flight operations and public transportation services are operating as they should be.
The floods struck the Klang Valley this week with a continual stream of rain, which caused evacuations for thousands of residents and road users stranded. Bernama confirmed that the Jalan Dagang-Nilai route near Kota Warisan was still closed as of the 19th of December due to floods.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob instructed all relevant ministries to immediately mobilise assets to the flood-affected areas to ensure that the people are rescued and placed in evacuation centres.
