I just realized today in KLIA's departure information that there are 2 Air Asia's flight departing from the same gate within 5 minutes of each other. I know KLIA have 2 aerobridge at each of the A and B gates that are even numbered, i.e. A 02, A 04, B02, B 04 etc. The thing is, I don't know that these gates are capable of handling 2 B737s / A320s simultaneously. I had never seen 2 gates being used simultaneously at KUL, not until I checked KLIa's website recently. Has any anybody else seen this happening at KUL before? I know in most European Airports, each gate with 2 aerobrdige is capable fo handling 2 narrow body aircraft, but KUL? There are plenty of gates free (gates A and B only)! Plus, those gates used by Air Asia are mainly used for mixed international/domestic flights since passengers can board the aircraft from 2 different level.

The gates are numbered gate is numbered A02, then A02R and A02L. I think they can service 2 737s

I discovered this practice too the last time I flew with MAS in Aug. I guess its a very efficient way of untilising a gate without spreading too many personnel all over the tarmac.
