MAHB Confirms Delay In klia2 Opening

May 09, 2013 17:51 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, May 9 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has confirmed the delay in the opening of the new low-cost air terminal, klia2, scheduled for June 28, after taking into account several key quality and safety issues.

MAHB is expected to convene a special meeting with all stakeholders soon, to explain the delay in the construction of the RM4 billion airline hub.

"We will be meeting all concerned before announcing a revised opening date. The stakeholders are among others, the contractors, airlines, retail tenants and government agencies," MAHB Chief Financial Officer, Faizal Mansor told Bernama.

He said MAHB does not want to rush the klia2 contractors, which could jeopardise the quality and safety of the airport.

"We want to ensure things are done right to avoid any glitches on the opening day," he added.

Faizal,however, declined to reveal any timeline, as to when the klia2 would be launched, or the duration of the delay.

The June 28 launch date target was mooted by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, to coincide with the date of the opening of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in 1998.

With some 10 airlines committed to operate from it, the klia2 is built to cater for the explosive growth expected in low-cost travel, while envisaged to also handle a maximum of 45 million passengers per annum.

It will have 60 gates, eight remote stands and 80 aerobridges, plus a 32,000 square metre retail space with 225 outlets.

Meanwhile, RHB Research analyst, Ahmad Maghfur Usman said the delay can go on for as long as six-months, with the airport at present just under 90 per cent complete.

He said the airport apron, a vital component of an airport, is also not ready.

"Even if the new terminal can be completed by September after a two-month delay, MAHB would still need to carry out operational trial runs, that may require at least four months," he added.

Despite the delay in the klia2's opening, Ahmad Maghfur said it is unlikely that MAHB will experience cost overruns, since it is not due to variations in the terminal's design, while contractual terms are fixed.

Branson dons heels, shaves legs to honour bet with Fernandes





Sir Richard Branson with Tan Sri Tony Fernandes Sir Richard Branson with Tan Sri Tony Fernandes

SEPANG: Virgin Group's Sir Richard Branson sportingly donned AirAsia's iconic red stewardess outfit complete with make-up and a hairdo as he finally made good on a bet with Tan Sri Tony Fernandes.

The normally suave and manly Branson made quite an arresting sight in drag as he batted his false eyelashes and smiled at the crowd upon arriving at LCCT after serving as an air stewardess on a special AirAsia X charity flight from Perth, Australia Sunday morning.

The billionaire entrepreneur also shaved his legs as promised but insisted on keeping his beard, which made a startling contrast to the lipstick he had slicked on.

However, Branson also made sure he got his revenge on Fernandes by purposely tipping a tray full of orange juice over the AirAsia boss.

"I looked at him and said 'don't you dare'. I wanted to kill him!" said Fernandes with a laugh.

He then told reporters he had to be in his underpants for a while as he did not bring a change of clothing, but that another flight member had kindly lent him a pair of shorts while his jeans were being dried.

He also promptly "fired" Branson upon landing, and gave him a certificate to recognise he had "graduated" as an AirAsia stewardess.

Branson on his part said he had huge respect for the "fabulous flight attendants" who performed their jobs everyday.

He spent the five-and-a-half hour flight pouring coffee or tea, serving meals, distributing goodies, entertaining as well as making in-flight announcements.

Branson and Fernandes had wagered on their respective Formula One teams finishing ahead of the other during their 2010 debut season in Abu Dhabi.

They agreed that the loser would serve as a female flight attendant on board the winner's airline.

Bernama reported Fernandes has been dared into his own promise, announcing he would become one of Virgin Galactic's first commercial space tourists.

"What he (Branson) doesn't realise is once I go into space, there'll be a low-cost version, AirAsia Galactica, about 10% of the price he's charging," he quipped.

Around RM600,000 (AUD$200,000) was raised for the charity flight which will go to the Starlight Children's Foundation in Australia. The foundation is dedicated to brightening the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children and their families across the country.

I suspect they might open the new terminal without the aerobridges .Only install them in stages when the demand is there!I could be wronglah.Its a short walk from the aircraft to whatever they have now!Then u walk up the staircase to the terminal building.

You don't save time by opening the terminal without aerobridges. It will be even more disruptive to install them while the terminal is in operation - you have to close several gates at a time, move heavy equipment around, cranes and the aerobridges themselves.

"Meanwhile, he said, construction of the gateway@KLIA2 airport mall is 90 per cent completed and its opening will be in tandem with that of the low-cost carrier terminal which will be determined by the airport operator, Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd.
