News: Berjaya Group Eyes to Build Tioman Airport

Jun 12, 2018


Berjaya Group has revealed plans to build a new airport in Pulau Tioman at an estimated cost of RM1.2 billion.

Berjaya Group Executive Chairman Tan Sri Vincent Tan has said the project was his way of helping the Pakatan Harapan administration as it will be built at no cost to the federal government, reported Malay Mail.

“We are looking for an infrastructure project and will propose to the government. We want to finance the project ourselves with loans from banks. We won’t burden the government,” he said.

“We are looking at the Tioman Airport project. We understand the country’s finances are not in the best shape now. We are willing to work with partners, to privatise and finance it, but the government can arrange it.”

He noted that the government will manage the proposed airport once approved.

New Straits Times has reported that a new airport will help boost tourist arrivals in Pulau Tioman, which was once voted one of the top 10 most beautiful islands in the world.
