Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to present to you the first issue of our quarterly e-newsletter, The Hub for 2018. In this issue, there are many exciting events and achievements recorded within the Group that will shape us for the rest of the year.

One of the highlights in this issue would be the official launch of the tunneling works for MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) Line at Bandar Malaysia North MRT by YAB Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak, the Prime Minister of Malaysia on 1 March 2018. The SSP Line is the second under the Klang Valley MRT project and will run from Sungai Buloh to Putrajaya through Kepong, Batu, Jalan Ipoh, Titiwangsa, KLCC, Tun Razak Exchange, Bandar Malaysia, Sungai Besi, Serdang, UPM and Cyberjaya.

We are also proud of Senai International Airport for being the first airport in Malaysia to pilot AirAsia’s Fast Airport Clearance Experience System, a biometric identification system also known as FACES.
