MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAB) will carry out a three-month Environmental Impact Study on swiftlets and its impact on bird strikes, Sepang Municipal Council (MPSp) Town Planning director Yunus Kashib said after the MPSp fullboard meeting recently.
“MAB will do a comparison study of different airports such as those in East Malaysia as well as Indonesia, where the swiftlet industry is booming.
“There were two incidents where swiftlets were the cause, but only a DNA report, which will take three months, will determine which species was the actual culprit.
“The current licence holders can continue their activities but the council will not issue new licences for the time being,” he said.
