Malaysian Airports Bhd (MAB) Miri has issued a notice that the inner lane at Miri Airport will be closed to the public from tomorrow (Oct 22).

According to the Borneo Post, MAB announced in a notice that the closure due to safety reasons, the inner lane at Miri Airport would be closed to the public (to drop off or pick up passengers) except to ambulances, fire engines, police, airport taxis, and VIPs (with prior approval from airport authority).

It was further reported by the English daily that the closure has stirred up some controversy as some felt that the closure should effect everyone if it was due to security reasons.
