It has been a while since my last post on this blog. I should truly feel shamed of myself especially when sometimes I shouted I'm "a blogger" in front of my friends yet I have abandoned my primary blog for such long!
Being lazy is one thing. Another thing is nothing new in my life to share about. Anyway I am back! I finally found something to share with all my readers! It is not something new, perhaps a lot of you may already saw and used it. What can it be then?
It's actually about the extension of Sibu Airport. Told you it is nothing new. Just that recently I had go and fro Sibu airport for few rounds, so I have the chance to take some photos on part of the completed structure. Just in case you haven't see the place, here we go!
The west wing of the airport is the earliest section to be completed and it is now partially functional. It is used as the departure hall for flights check-in and luggage dropping area.
The new departure hall has plenty of spaces if compare to the old one. Now passengers or the airport users can have a more comfortable and cooler place to complete their check-in procedure. The place should actually fully air-conditioned, yet I believe as the construction is not fully completed, thus these air conds are also not fully functional too.
I couldn't feel the cold when I was inside, the standing air conditioners at the deepest end of the wall from the entrance seem didn't produce cold air but the normal wind. However, there are fans around to make the place less stuffy.
A restaurant and shop are available at the departure hall, yet with poor internal design. Couldn't it be better since the terminal building is such welly constructed?
There are total of 18 check-in counters compare to 8 before the expansion. Predicted this will reduce the jam during peak period provided that there are that many ground staff on duty!
At this moment of writing, the right wing of the terminal building already been opened to be used as the arrival hall with 2 luggage reclaim belts while the renovate and over haul works of the center part (the old terminal building) had just started few days ago.
Let us wait for the completion of the entire upgrading project of Sibu Airport which needs maybe a year to two.
