Budget for KLIA 2 increased
By Presenna Nambiar Published: 2010/10/30
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014) is ready to spend some RM500 million more than the earlier budgeted RM2 billion for total construction cost of Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA 2).

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had said in his second stimulus package announcement in March last year that the new permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) would cost RM2 billion.

The airport operator said yesterday that its board of directors had mandated a sum of RM2.5 billion for the overall construction cost of KLIA 2.

MAHB chief financial officer Faizal Mansor, however, stressed that the RM2.5 billion budget was not final.

"While we will try to keep it below the budget, it is important to us to get the terminal completed well," he said at a briefing to announce the group's third quarter results in Sepang, Selangor.
While some big contracts have been dished out, Faizal declined to reveal how many more would be awarded.

KLIA 2 is now being planned to have double the initial size of 120,000 sq m.

While the new terminal is only half the size of KLIA's main terminal building, it is designed to have more than double the commercial space of the main terminal building.

After the recent completion of a retail optimisation plan at the KLIA main terminal building, about 7 per cent of the building is now commercial space compared to KLIA 2, which is expected to have about 20 per cent commercial space.

"What this means is that while the cost of running KLIA 2 will be half that of the main terminal building, it will be more viable, more sexy," Faizal said.

On its results for the third quarter ended September 30 2010, MAHB said net profit was down by almost 26 per cent. This was largely due to accounting losses it had to recognise in that period because of the adoption of the Financial Reporting Standard (FRS) 139.

MAHB made RM61.8 million net profit compared with RM83.4 million a year ago. The loss arising from adopting FRS 139 was about RM30 million.

Part of this loss came from recognising concessions payable at fair value for the Sabiha Gokcen International Airport in Istanbul, Turkey.

Year to date, the group recognised RM54 million accounting losses from the associate. MAHB has projected that the full-year figure will touch RM80 million.

Group operating profit in the period reviewed was up 12 per cent to RM128.3 million compared with RM114.4 million in the previous corresponding period.

KLIA2 to stress online check-in
By June Ramlee Published: 2010/11/26
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...rmass/Article/

THE new low-cost carrier terminal, or KLIA2, which will be operational by mid-2012, aims to gradually move away from traditional check-in and conduct more web-based check-in services.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said that although there are concerns that not everyone is able to access the Internet, the airports are looking at ways to make the change possible.

This includes the fact that people cannot go online as broadband penetration in the country and region is still low.

"We know that this is going to be an issue but the airports are looking into that," he told the media when met at the "Check-in Asia" conference in Sepang yesterday.

Bashir said currently the ratio between traditional counter check-in and online check-in is 70:30.

The same ratio will be maintained when KLIA2 is operational in mid-2012, but MAHB aims to gradually move the operations more towards online check-in.

"We can do a lot with the space that we have now. When the check-in counters are not there we can use the space for so many things. Already we have so many enquiries," he added.

Meanwhile, Malaysian Airline System Bhd (MAS) managing director and chief executive officer Tengku Datuk Azmil Zahruddin said the airline is looking at offering a variety of options besides traditional counter check-in servives, for its customers to have a seamless experience when flying with MAS, as well as to minimise waiting time at the airports.

"Currently, we have mobile check- in services, online check-in, kiosks and also IPAD, al-though it is not in sale in Malaysia yet," he said.

He also said MAS was looking at ways to use social networks such as Twitter and Facebook to enable their custo-mers to check in in the future.

"We haven't really figured out how this will work but we are looking at it and we are open to ideas," he said.

Azmil also said that MAS was looking at reinstating several new routes as it is now a profit-making company.

"We trimmed between 15 and 20 per cent of our routes, especially those non-profitable ones to Europe, but now we are reinstating slowly and focusing more on routes to Asia as this is where the growth is at the moment," he said.

As part of the Aviation forum restructuring, airports should only have one thread. Instead of merging the two KUL airport threads together, posts from this existing thread have been copied and pasted into the other one. As a result, this thread is now closed. Should anyone have any problems, feel free to send me a PM.
