On July 15, 2010, it was announced that Bina Puri with partner UEM Construction has won the tender to build the terminal for RM 997.23 million. Construction works is expected to complete within 20 months. The construction site is next to the Main Terminal Building / Bunga Raya Complex. The Express Rail Link will be extended beyond Bunga Raya Complex to the new terminal. Once completed, it will be called KLIA2 to reflect higher standard of design and materials, as opposed to the current LCCT, which will be demolished and revert to a cargo hub.
