The paper describes the Malaysian experiences with airport expansion. Increase in international and domestic air travel has resulted in increased demand for airport facilities. In Malaysia, the rise of low-cost air travel has had the government revising the current capacity of the international airport provision. This research relates the experiences of major expansion phases of the second Kuala Lumpur International Airport, which is also known as KLIA2. It dwells into the anticipated environmental impacts of such expansion. Impacts such as noise and air pollution have been identified with airport expansion. Points at which expansions are occurring rapidly and landuse changes are severed have, therefore, been identified as sampling locations. Both noise and particulate matter levels are recorded using various airborne particulate matter samplers as and noise dosimeter as data capture devises. These data are also analysed in a controlled laboratory environment. Whilst more data collection and analyses are currently carried out, the preliminary findings suggested that increased intensity of construction activities and landuse changes have direct relationships with noise and particulate matter levels. It is hoped that the study findings will assist in providing a better insight into the intangible costs and benefits derived from an airport expansion.
