The four-year partnership will allow travellers to book their Grab rides even before they leave the arrival hall through a Grab kiosk located in the airport.
“This collaboration will add value to SkyPark Terminal’s overall offering to our guests and make their commute to and from SkyPark Terminal much more convenient.
"Over the years we have seen our footfall increase consistently and with our projections for 2017 showing a continuation of this positive growth, partnering with Grab will allow us to meet this growing demand,” said Ravindran Menon, executive director of Subang SkyPark Sdn Bhd.
The agreement was signed at the Peugeot Lounge at SkyPark Terminal by Ravindran and Jaygan Fu, Grab Malaysia’s Country Head.
The agreement between Grab and SkyPark Terminal results from a mutual aim to provide both business and leisure travellers with rides that are safe, reliable, convenient and cost-effective.
