DPM: Cabinet awaiting report on KK airport shutdown
By RUBEN SARIO
LABUAN: The Cabinet is waiting for a report from the Transport Ministry on the shutdown of runway lights at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) last week.
He added that the Cabinet would also look into the delays into the completion of KKIA expansion works that were two years overdue.
Muhyiddin also issued an apology to the affected passengers.
"We want to get to the root of the problem and find out who is responsible," he said during a visit to the international offshore financial centre (IOFC) after opening an oil and gas seminar here Tuesday.
He said the Government would not tolerate a repeat of the situation that caused chaos at Malaysia's second busiest airport.
Flight operations at KKIA were halted on Thursday night after the runway lights blacked out and it was only after 10pm on Friday that the problem was rectified.
