AirAsia gets new terminal
AFP

Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia said on Monday it would move to a new low-cost terminal at Kuala Lumpur's international airport by March 2012, a year later than planned.

But AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes said he was 'thrilled' with an agreement struck with Malaysia's airport authorities after a long-running battle over the design and facilities. 'We are very happy with the design, it has taken in a lot of our input,' Mr Fernandes told reporters. 'We think that with this, a large part of our battle to make Malaysia the biggest hub of Asia is over.' AirAsia, which was launched in 2001 with just two planes, is now the region's fourth-biggest carrier with 25 million passengers a year. Mr Fernandes said the current low-cost carrier terminal, which opened in 2006, had a capacity to handle 15 million passengers annually while the new terminal would have a capacity of 30 million.

As part of the agreement with operators Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad there will be parking bays for 76 aircraft and AirAsia's headquarters will be located next to the terminal building.

Mr Fernandes said the carrier also planned to introduce flights this year to the Maldives, where his Tune Hotel business has been invited to build six budget hotels.

Bina Puri hopes to be awarded LCCT job soon
By Sharen KaurPublished: 2010/05/06

The construction group has bid for the RM1.1 billion package to build the main terminal and satellite building in a 40:60 joint venture with UEM Group
Bina Puri Holdings Bhd (5932) hopes to get the letter of award to build the main terminal and satellite building of the new permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang, Selangor, this month

The construction group had bid for the RM1.1 billion package in a 40:60 joint venture with UEM Group.

"We have done a lot of site preparation and believe we can finish construction in 17 months," Bina Puri group managing director Tan Sri Tee Hock Seng said after its shareholder meeting in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) had shortlisted five companies, including a tie-up between Sunway Construction Sdn Bhd and privately-held AHT Norlan-Carriage, IJM Corp Bhd and the Gadang Holdings-PPC joint venture, for the contracts.
To date, MAHB has awarded two contracts for the LCCT project.

The first, worth RM362 million, was given to WCT Bhd last December for site preparation, earthworks and main drainage. In January, a RM291 million contract was awarded to Gadang Bhd to carry out earthworks for the runway and taxiways.

Bina Puri also submitted a bid last month to build a RM150 million hotel on 2.4ha next to the LCCT. It is partnering Brem Holdings Bhd and Crystal Crown Hotels & Resorts in the bid.

The new LCCT will be 1.5km away from the KL International Airport compared with 20km for the existing LCCT.

Published: 2009/09/14



EXPRESS Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERLSB) plans to lay 2km of railway tracks from the KL International Airport (KLIA) to the new permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang to extend its rail services, its chief says.

ERLSB, majority controlled by YTL Corp Bhd, holds a 30-year concession to operate the KLIA Express and KLIA Transit rail services from KL Sentral in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, to KLIA.

Chief executive officer Noormah Mohd Noor said the extension of its rail services to the new permanent LCCT will boost passenger traffic by some 15 per cent to 4.2 million from 2011.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), the main contractor for the new permanent LCCT, is targeting to complete the construction by the third quarter of 2011 at a cost of RM2 billion.

"We are in talks with MAHB and have submitted a proposal to them a few months ago to extend the rail line. We are fine-tuning the plan and the cost to lay the tracks," Noormah told Business Times.

ERLSB has 12 electric high-speed train sets for the KLIA Express, which runs from KL Sentral to KLIA in 28 minutes, and KLIA Transit, which stops at Bandar Tasek Selatan, Putrajaya and Salak Tinggi before heading to the airport in 35 minutes.

The KLIA Express and KLIA Transit carry a combine 3.7 million passengers a year currently.

The new LCCT terminal, which will be located to the west of the main KLIA terminal building with a distance of 1.5km, will be able to accommodate 30 million passengers per annum, with capacity for expansion of up to 45 million passengers a year.

Noormah said the company will launch on September 15 a temporary bus shuttle service from Salak Tinggi to the existing LCCT to promote its KLIA Transit service, while the new permanent LCCT is under construction.

"We are doing this to capture the LCCT market, which will be a new growth area for us," she said.

Noormah also said that ERLSB is offering VIP services, group discounts and giving one complimentary trip for every 10 trips bought up front.

The company has tied up with Amadeus, the world's biggest processor of travel bookings with a 29.2 per cent market share, to help sell its KLIA Express tickets.
New LCCT ERL track under discussion — Ong
May 7, 2010, Friday
http://www.theborneopost.com/?p=28429



UNDER DISCUSSION: Ong appearing on Bernama TV’s Hello Malaysia
programme at Wisma Bernama Wednesday night. — Bernama photo


KUALA LUMPUR: The government and Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL) are currently discussing the ERL extension track linking the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and the new Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT), says Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat.

He said a number of problem areas identified by the ERL operator had been brought to the attention of the National Key Result Area (NKRA) task force responsible for urban public transportation for deliberation.

“We want to upgrade public transportation service, particularly in two areas here, namely the railway service and air rail link,” he told a press conference after visiting the ERL Sdn Bhd office and ERL depot in Salak Tinggi yesterday.

Ong said various aspects including the financial implications, overall operation and technicalities, needed to be studied before carrying out the ERL extension project.

Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd (MAHB) will begin construction of the new RM2 billion LCCT in the middle of the year and it is expected to be ready in 2011.

It will be built on a 150,000 sq metre site, about 1.5km away from the KLIA main terminal.

Ong said he was proud of ERL Sdn Bhd for maintaining its punctuality record in its rail service at 99.7 per cent since it began operating six years ago.

“We want to make sure that this kind of culture will be emulated by others, not only in rail service but also in other public transportation services.”

Meanwhile, he urged airlines not to dispute over the flight paths and to leave the matter to the government.

“I think this kind of dispute should be avoided. What should be our main target is improving the quality of our services, and to me the biggest challenge in providing public air service is on-time performance.

“Airlines should stay focused on enhancing their level of on-time performance … the quality of service. If we can do that, we go a step higher in service excellence,” he said. — Bernama

Actually the current LCCT is just across the main terminal, however between them is a taxi way and the satellite terminal. The 20kms distance is traveling from the main terminal to the LCCT by car or bus. Since you need to go around the runway and KLIA is a huge facility...

I don't think so, bro. I used to travel by the Air Asia Skybus several times last year. If you come from the city towards the Main Terminal, you just need to turn right at the roundabout and driving at the edge of one of the runway. There you'll find the site of the new LCCT, approximately less than 2 km. And if you turn left and circling the whole complex, I don't believe it would reach 20 km as well to reach the site.

MAHB evaluating proposals
By Presenna Nambiar Published: 2010/06/14

Two tenders have been called out, one for the development of an integrated complex and the other for an hotel adjacent to the upcoming permanent LCCT in Sepang

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014) is evaluating proposals for a 20-hectare commercial development adjacent to the upcoming permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang, which will feature an integrated complex and a three-star hotel.

Two tenders have been called out, one for the development of the integrated complex, which includes two car parks, a transportation hub that will eventually house the extended express rail link and a landside mall. The other tender is for the hotel.

The request for proposal period closed in April this year.

"The core proposition is not the landside mall, but the transportation hub. The mall and hotel are actually leveraging the population that is going to pass through it, such as the passengers, the meet and greeters, and even MAHB staff," MAHB senior general manager commercial Faizah Khairuddin told Business Times recently.
The development will be done on a build, operate and transfer model.

"We (MAHB) are also a stakeholder, wherein we will be driving the concept of the development to ensure that it will be a seamless experience between the mall and the retail space within the airport," Faizah said.

The mall will have 100,000 sq m of retail space, while the new LCCT is expected to have about 40,000 sq m of retail space.

This is about quadruple of the percentage of retail space which is available in the main terminal building (MTB) of the KL International Airport now.

Retail space will make up 20 per cent of total space in the new LCCT, compared with only 5 per cent of total space in MTB.

"The new permanent LCCT will be the test bed. For the first time, a terminal will be commercially driven. We have been involved from the planning stage, to make sure that the layout and design of the terminal is suited for the leisure market.

"I'm sure there will be room for improvement. The test will be in the execution," Faizah said.

New LCCT to be ready by early 2012
Published: 2010/06/30

The new Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) in Sepang is expected to be completed by early 2012, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd's (MAHB) managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said.

He said the LCCT is taking longer to complete as construction is being undertaken on the basis of a tender exercise.

"Also, we are currently redoing the design, as the new building is much bigger than the original concept. So, all this has resulted in more time being taken for completion," he told a press conference after the KLIA's 12th anniversary celebration in Sepang today.

Bashir, however, declined to give more details on the project, saying further announcements would be made later.

Commenting on the celebration, MAHB chairman Tan Sri Aris Othman said KLIA has flourished to become one of world's best known airports in a space of just 12 years of its operations.

"In the first half of 2010 alone, KLIA managed to rope in three Middle Eastern airlines in Mahan Air, Oman Air and Royal Jordanian.

"Last year, the airport handled 29.6 million passengers, an increase of 7.8 per cent compared to previously," he added.

He also attributed the outstanding performance to all agencies at the KLIA.

The KLIA has this year bagged three awards, namely for Best Airport Immigration Service, Staff Service Excellence in the South East Asia category at the Skytrax 2010 World Airport Awards and as the Best Brand in Transportation from Brand Laureate 2009-2010. -- Bernama

New LCCT to be bigger than planned
By Hamisah HamidPublished: 2010/07/01
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...30BIG/Article/

The new permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) that will be ready by March 2012, will be bigger than previously planned.

However, details of the revised cost, size and capacity of the new LCCT have yet to be announced by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB)(5014).

Managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said MAHB can only reveal the details when the tender exercise for the terminal is closed.

"Now, we are still doing the tender exercise," he told a news conference after the launch of the KL International Airport's (KLIA) 12th anniversary celebration in Sepang yesterday.

Also present were MAHB chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Osman and senior general manager (operations services) Datuk Azmi Murad.
The original cost of the new LCCT project was RM2 billion. The terminal is expected to cater to 30 million passengers per year, with potential capacity for 45 million passengers per year.

Bashir said the delay in the completion of the new LCCT building was due to the open tender process and the building design which had be to be re-done. The open tender exercise for the terminal has taken three months longer than expected.

"Secondly, the building that we are going to build right now is much bigger than the original building. Because of this, we have to do another design to cater to the larger building," he said.

Asked when the tender will be closed, he said: "It'll be soon."

To date, MAHB has awarded two contracts for the new LCCT project. The first, worth RM362 million, was given to WCT Bhd last December for site preparation, earthworks and main drainage. In January, a RM291 million contract was awarded to Gadang Bhd to carry out earthworks for the runway and taxiways.

On the development of the sukuk and bond to be issued by MAHB to fund the development of the new LCCT project, Bashir said the company will announce details of the fund-raising exercise later.

It was earlier reported that the airport operator plans to issue sukuk and bond with a combined value of RM2.5 billion. It was said that the pricing and tenure of the bonds will be determined during the roadshow, which was supposed to start sometime in the middle of June.

On whether MAHB and its partner GMR Infrastructure Ltd is bidding for more overseas airport projects, following the recently clinched Male International Airport contract in the Maldives, Bashir said, "Not at the moment".

Bashir also denied news reports that MAHB is part of a Malaysian consortium participating in the development of the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport in Pampanga province, the Philippines.

He said MAHB, together with Saudi Arabia companies, are currently bidding for the Madinah international airport.

Besides Male airport, MAHB, which operates 39 airports in Malaysia, has three other overseas airports in its portfolio.

On contribution from overseas airport projects, Bashir said returns can only be realised after the fourth or fifth year of operations.

"Normally, the concession period for airports is about 20 years, so normally the first three years is where you start investing money and the returns will come after the fourth or fifth year," he added.

UEM-Bina Puri JV wins RM997mil LCCT job
By IZWAN IDRIS Saturday July 17, 2010
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...4&sec=business

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has awarded a RM997.22mil contract for the main buildings at the proposed low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) to a joint venture between UEM Construction Sdn Bhd (UEMC) and Bina Puri Holdings Bhd.

UEMC is a unit of UEM Group Bhd.

The project is expected to take 20 months to complete, which means the new LCCT complex will only be ready in March 2012 if the builders stick to the schedule.

“It is a challenge for us to complete it within 20 months as the new LCCT is a fast-track project,” Bina Puri group managing director Tan Sri Tee Hock Seng said in a statement yesterday.

Bina Puri had accepted the letter of award from MAHB on July 16, the firm told Bursa Malaysia during the mid-day trading break yesterday.

Shares in Bina Puri surged 31 sen, or 28%, to close at RM1.42 on total volume of 4.98 million units. This was the stock’s best level in about six years.

Earlier this month, MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad was quoted as saying that the new LCCT was targeted for completion in early 2012 and would be bigger that originally planned.

He said the change in design for the terminal building as well as the open tender process meant that the actual award of contract had to be delayed.

The project was originally estimated at RM2bil for completion in late 2011.

The terminal building project is the third contract awarded by MAHB under the plan to move the existing LCCT to a permanent site located less than 2km from KL International Airport.

The portion awarded to the UEMC-Bina Puri joint venture is for the design, construction, commissioning and maintenance of the main terminal building, a satellite building, sky bridge and piers.

The first contract for the LCCT project was given to WCT Bhd in December last year for site preparation worth RM363mil. Gadang Bhd bagged a RM291mil contract in January to carry out earthworks for the runway.

“We are proud to be involved in this prestigious project together with a reputable partner, UEMC. This is the highest project value secured in one single contract for this year,” Tee said.

The statement, however, did not provide the shareholding structure in the joint venture.

With the award, Bina Puri’s current order book stands at RM2.7bil. The company has secured RM1.51bil worth of jobs so far this year.

Tee expected the LCCT project to contribute positively to Bina Puri’s earnings for the year ending Dec 31, 2010.

NEW PROJECT: An overview of the new LCC Terminal in Sepang, Selangor.

KUCHING: Bina Puri Holdings Bhd (Bina Puri) has received a letter of award from Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) through a joint venture (JV) with UEM Group Bhd’s subsidiary, UEM Construction Sdn Bhd (UEMC).

For Bina Puri, this is another achievement and recognition of our abilities, capabilities and the proven effort to contribute to nation building. We are proud to be involved in this prestigious project together with a reputable partner, UEMC.

PJI bids for LCCT sub-contract works
By June RamleePublished: 2010/08/14

PJI Holdings Bhd (7122) has put in a bid to the UEM Construction Sdn Bhd and Bina Puri Holdings Bhd joint venture for a mechanical and electrical engineering services contract at the low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang, said its acting head.

The UEM-Bina Puri venture recently won a RM997.23 million contract from Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) to help build the LCCT.

"Yes, we are pursuing sub-contract works for mechanical and electrical services, which are part of the main terminal building package," acting manging director Lim Chong Ling told Business Times.

Lim is acting manging director, as his predecessor Datuk Donald Lim Siang Chai quit the company in June, paving the way for him to be appointed as deputy finance minister.
According to Lim it will take a few months before PJI knows the result.

It was reported last year that PJI had submitted a tender to supply engineering services to MAHB for a contract worth between RM400 million and RM500 million.

The LCCT, slated to be ready by 2012, aims to cater to 30 million passengers per year, with potential capacity for 45 million passengers per year.

Elsewhere, PJI is also looking to continue to build up its relationship with IJM Corp Bhd, one of the largest diversified construction companies in the country.

Lim said that the company has been IJM's sub-contractor for many years and has carried out projects such as Putrajaya International Convention Centre, Hotel Alam Warisan, Putrajaya and Putrajaya Maritime Centre.

"We will continue to pursue projects from them from time to time,"he added.

Meanwhile, Lim also said that PJI's forecast revenue for this year is expected to be in the RM90 million range, with the company expecting to remain focused on the domestic scene.

"We have no plans to diversify abroad due to the high capital investment and currency fluctuation risks," said Lim.

AirAsia may consider aerobridges at new LCCT
By Jeeva Arulampalam Published: 2010/08/27

BUDGET carrier AirAsia Bhd (5099)may consider using aerobridges at the new permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) to aide passenger convenience, says its chief.

"MAHB (Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd) has given us a proposal on using aerobridges and if we can get the right economic deal, we will consider it," AirAsia chief executive officer Datuk Seri Dr Tony Fernandes told Business Times yesterday.

Fernandes added that the airline would still be able to meet its 25-minute turnaround time with the usage of aero-bridges.

The low-cost carrier (LCC) has previously resisted using aerobridges at the current temporary LCCT to keep its cost structure low and be in keeping with its quick turnaround time.
Fernandes said that the airline was also working with the airport operator MAHB to find innovative ways to enhance the passenger experience and security at the new LCCT in Sepang.

"We are assisting them in creating a centre for LCCs to converge and a world-class hub. MAHB has incorporated a lot of what we have asked and in understanding of our needs," he added.

Among the considerations taken into account by the airport operator include the number of parking bays dedicated to AirAsia and AirAsia X and a dual-mode runway that helps reduce the planes' taxi time.

"We are happy with the airspace planning and that the runway will be able to accommodate our A330 and A340 planes," he said.

One outstanding issue that has yet to be resolved though is the public connectivity to the new LCCT.

"We hope that the ERL and KTM services can be extended to the new terminal," said Fernandes.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the new LCCT, to be officiated by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, will be held next Monday.

To complete a 30M passenger capacity terminal in merely 20 months! That's almost Mission Impossible in my opinion. The testing and commissioning of the airport systems alone would take 4-6 months but that's for a normal terminal building. If LCCT's systems are much simpler than normal terminal, they may be able to make it. Keep our finger crossed.

The design of the LCCT appears like a spaceship, and the . Very interesting. Also a bit like the older Terminal 2 of Charles de Gaulle. Does anyone know who the designer is?
