Gadang hands over Runway 3 at KLIA2
By Sharen Kaur Published: 2012/09/10
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

FLYING HIGH: Company upbeat on winning more contracts after completing MAHB job in time and on budget

AIRPORT operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has taken possession of Runway 3, one of the major components for the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) project in Sepang, Selangor.

The Runway 3 contract worth RM291.2 million was awarded to Gadang Holdings Bhd in 2010. The job includes building taxiways, site preparation, earthworks and main drainage.

Gadang completed the job last month and handed it over to MAHB on August 28.

With the completion of Runway 3, Gadang managing director and chief executive officer Tan Sri Kok Onn said the company is now eyeing earthwork packages for projects under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).

"We are upbeat on winning some jobs. We are confident to take on bigger jobs after completing Runway 3 within schedule and on budget," he told Business Times.

Kok said working on the KLIA2 project has been one of the biggest achievements for Gadang.

"There were a lot of challenges because of the soil condition.

"We were supervised by our consultant and had full support from MAHB. MAHB has acknowledged that we did a good job and they are happy with the result," Kok said.

Gadang, which has RM1.5 billion in its order book, will look for similar earthwork projects in Malaysia, he added.

Runway 3 at KLIA2 is important due to the anticipated growth of aviation traffic in Asia Pacific. The 4km runway can support the A330 and B747 aircraft and will specifically cater to AirAsia Bhd's expansion plans.

It will help to ease congestion, reduce taxing time and serve as a backup in the event that Runways 1 or 2 are closed.

An official from MAHB said with the opening of the KLIA2 by April next year, it is anticipated that existing low-cost carriers will increase their flight frequency and new airlines are expected to come in.

The RM4 billion KLIA2 will be the world's largest purpose-built terminal for low-cost carriers and will have the capacity to serve 45 million passengers annually.

The opening of KLIA2 will help make the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) as one of the aviation hubs in Southeast Asia.

KLIA 2 to start with 10 airlines in 2013
Published: 2012/09/13




KUALA LUMPUR: The new Low-Cost Carrier (LCC) Terminal, KLIA 2 in Sepang, is set to host 10 frills-free airlines once it is operational in May 2013, says Faizal Mansor, Chief Financial Officer of Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB).

He said the airport operator is still open to welcome more airlines to use KLIA 2, as the airport is capable of serving 45 million passengers per year.

He added that KLIA 2 is designed to accommodate all types of airlines, but it is best suited for airlines with low-cost business model.

"Once the airport is operational in May 2013, MAHB will have almost 10 low-cost carriers flying from there. Among them are Zest Airways, Lion Air, Tiger Airways, Cebu Pacific Air and definitely, AirAsia.


"We would love to welcome more airlines to KLIA 2. Five years ago, there were only five low-cost carriers but now there are about 30 to 40 budget carriers," Faizal told Bernama in an interview.

He said the latest to join the group of airlines is Malindo Airways, which was introduced on Tuesday, through a joint-venture between National Aerospace and Defence Industries Sdn Bhd (NADI) and PT Lion Grup.

On Malindo Airways, Faizal said MAHB will commence detailed discussion with the new budget carrier soon, particularly on the level of space and facilities that it needs at the new airport.
"We have very plain understanding and have not gone to the details yet.

"MAHB welcomes the new airline to Malaysia as well as to KLIA 2. For an airport, the more the competition, the better," he added.

KLIA 2 is being constructed at a cost of nearly RM4 billion, to replace the temporary LCC Terminal, which was constructed in 2006.

The new airport, located just two kilometres from the main Kuala Lumpur International Airport terminal, would be the largest LCC Terminal in the region upon completion, with a total area of 242,000 sq metres.

KLIA 2 will also feature a multi-modal transportation hub for buses, taxis, and Express Rail Link (ERL) train to provide connectivity for passengers and also for the public, in addition to the semi-automated baggage handling system, support zones, cargo and in-flight complexes, a 6,000-vehicle parking complex, two to three hotels and AirAsia's future headquarters.

The opening of KLIA 2 will also help make Malaysia as one of the aviation hubs in Southeast Asia. -- BERNAMA

AirAsia, MAHB working hand-in-hand to meet KLIA2 deadline, says Aireen
Posted on 13 September 2012 - 08:48pm
http://www.thesundaily.my/news/489204

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 13, 2012): AirAsia Bhd is working hand-in-hand with Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) to discuss and resolve outstanding issues with regards to the new low-cost carrier terminal (KLIA2) in Sepang.

AirAsia Malaysia CEO Aireen Omar said the low-cost carrier (LCC), which will be the single largest tenant at the new terminal, was committed to work together with MAHB to meet the May 2013 deadline.

KLIA2 is expected to be operational in May 2013, with a maximum capacity of 45 million passengers a year.

"MAHB has mentioned repeatedly that May 2013 is the date. So, we have to be ready for the date and we will move in once the airport is ready, functional and safe for us to operate as a low-cost carrier.

"Our airline is a LCC, so we are working with MAHB to make sure that the airport is ready for a low-cost business structure," she told Bernama.

Aireen said there were several key areas that both AirAsia and MAHB would have to work out to facilitate low-cost flight operations take off smoothly such as the runways, baggage checking system and related facilities.

"We don't want any glitches on the first day itself. Even the runway has to be of certain standard so that our pilots will feel safe to operate our A320s or A330s. The airport is going to be home for AirAsia X too.

Aireen, who was appointed AirAsia Malaysia's CEO in July, said MAHB and AirAsia had very productive weekly meetings and "I have been personally engaging with MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad to discuss certain issues pertaining to KLIA2."

Asked on the spat between MAHB and AirAsia group CEO Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, Aireen said: "I don't know what they (MAHB) had with Tony before but now it has been mostly on professional basis.

"This is because MAHB has set a target date and I think the whole nation is eyeing on it to see whether it is really happening or not. Thus, there is a need for both MAHB and AirAsia to do something," she said.

"I think a cordial working relationship between the airport operator and AirAsia is very important to see everything moving as planned," he said.

On AirAsia, Aireen said the budget carrier would ensure that Malaysia remained as the regional hub for low-cost aviation business in the region, besides playing a crucial role to enhance the tourism industry by flying in more foreign tourists.

"In doing so, the spillover effect will be huge. We are not just bringing in the traffic, but also foreign tourists and foreign exchange into Malaysia.

"We are also creating a centre of excellence for the aviation industry in Asia," she added. – Bernama

May 2013? like seriously? MAHB is putting their head again on the chopping block. Cant wait to see the next announcement of the delay. No way KLIA2 will be operational by 052013.

Yeah been pondering bout the same thing too. Even for layman like me would doubt the terminal readiness without testing major functions and systems to make sure they can cope with transfers.

My optimistic target would be around october 2013.
