Airport driveway to be demolished today
Friday April 8, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...9441&sec=North

GEORGE TOWN: The uphill driveway leading to the Penang International Airport departure hall will be demolished today to make way for a new one which is scheduled to be ready by October.

The demolition was postponed from last Friday to today because of the rain and also the need to complete 360 temporary car park bays.

The work to replace the existing driveway is part of the airport’s RM250mil renovation project, which is scheduled for full completion by next year.

“The temporary car park bays are now ready and we will carry out the demolition work today if there is no heavy rain,” Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) project manager Fazil Ahmad (pic) said.

He told The Star that the downwards exit driveway from the departure hall, was scheduled for demolition in July.

To address complaints about the inconvenience caused, MAHB will put up more directional signs at strategic spots at the airport.

Tourism authorities will also deploy four ushers to help tourists and those unfamiliar with the current airport settings.

“The drop-off and pickup points will also be converted into car park bays after October, which will give us another 380 car park lots, increasing the total number to 1,120 from the present 740,” Fazil said.

State Public Works, Utilities, and Transportation Committee chairman Lim Hock Seng said vehicles dropping off passengers at the departure hall would be diverted to the ground floor, which was also the arrival hall.

Lim said the airport security had also drawn up a contingency plan with Rela and the traffic police to monitor the traffic flow following the removal of the uphill driveway.

Once the arrival and departure kerbsides are ready in October, traffic flow at the Penang airport will be smoother
GEORGE TOWN: Come Oct 1, the traffic flow will be back to normal at the Penang International Airport (PIA) in Bayan Lepas, which has been undergoing a major facelift since June last year.

This is due to the expected completion of the new and wider arrival kerbside as well as the new elevated three-lane departure kerbside by Sept 30.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) project manager Fazil Ahmad said work on both kerbsides were presently 42 per cent complete.

Fazil said the airport authorities were confident that construction works on both kerbsides would meet the Sept 30 deadline.

"We expect traffic flow to be back to normal by Oct 1," he said during a briefing on the latest developments at the airport on Monday evening.

The new arrival kerbside will have seven lanes compared to four previously while the departure kerbside will be longer and much wider -- expanding from only two 3m lanes to three 3.5m lanes.

The departure hall on the upper floor will also be extended forward to take over the existing two-lane driveway, but the expansion, PIA senior manager Mohd Ariff Jaafar said, would take longer to complete.

Mohd Ariff also revealed that RM1.6 million was recently spent on temporary diversion measures, following complaints by passengers and the public over the confusion and inconveniences at the pick-up and drop-off area.

Since May 27, airport authorities have set up marquees equipped with chairs, fans and lighting that would be used by passengers and the public for picking-up and dropping-off until October.

The marquees and their maintenance cost over RM400,000, Mohd Ariff said.

Apart from that, the airport also has sheltered walkways constructed for the comfort and convenience of passengers on both its landside and airside, he said.

State Public Works, Utilities and Transportation Committee chairman Lim Hock Seng, who was also present, said complaints from the people had dwindled since the temporary diversion was in place.

"Some are still complaining but we urge the people to be patient for another few months," he said.

PIA's RM250 million upgrade is expected to complete by June next year with overall physical work completed as of May 31 this year at 29 per cent, just one per cent behind schedule.

The expansion project for the airport, which was last upgraded in 2001, is part of a RM60 billion fiscal stimulus package announced by the federal government in 2009.

The upgrading project over 340.5ha of land is divided into three main phases, which cover infrastructure and utilities, main terminal building and facility upgrades at the airport apron.

When the project is completed next year, the airport is expected to be able to accommodate up to five million passengers, with 1,300 to 2,000 people an hour.

Emirates looking at Penang, Kota Kinabalu
Published: 2011/09/19
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1YNkmtVOE



KUALA LUMPUR: Middle Eastern airline Emirates is looking at the possibility of flying out of other destinations in Malaysia in the next three to five years.

The carrier currently offers three flights daily out of Kuala Lumpur to Dubai. One extends to Melbourne.

"We have made initial studies but we have not decided on it yet. There is a lot of potential out of Penang if you ask me, but it will be about two years from now before we decide on anything," Emirates Malaysia country manager Kavin Martinus told Business Times here recently.

While in Europe, Emirates flies out of multiple destinations in one country, it has not replicated this strategy in Southeast Asia.

The airline's strategy is to fly to primary points first and slowly expand.

"We play it safe and fly to business destinations first, if we have proper business traffic then leisure traffic will follow," Martinus said.

Another destination Emirates is looking at in Malaysia is the Kota Kinabalu-Dubai route. This was part of a feasibility study done by Emirates five to six years ago on a 10-year plan to identify new growth areas for itself in Malaysia.

"Kota Kinabalu is also in the pipeline, eventually with so many aircraft on order and so many destinations we cannot discount that possibility," Martinus said.

The airline normally takes feedback from all stations before starting a new route.

Emirates has a fleet of 153 aircraft now, servicing over 100 cities around the world. It has 75 Airbus 380s, 70 Airbus 350s and 49 Boeing 777s on order.

Penang airport may see further expansion
Marina EmmanuelPublished: 2011/11/22
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1ed4A8lxc

The Penang International Airport is likely to see further expansion if plans to relocate the MASkargo Complex Centre close to the airport are successful.

Business Times has learnt that Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is re-looking at an earlier plan to expand the the existing passenger terminal to spill over to the cargo complex in Bayan Lepas to handle higher passenger traffic.

Sources said the MASkargo complex may be relocated to an area adjoining the Second Air Cargo Complex, which is in Batu Maung.

"The relocation of the MASkargo complex hinges on the acquisition of land, since the plot next to the second cargo complex is now where a ve-getable farm sits and belongs to a private owner," a source said.

The federal government is likely to fund the proposed passenger terminal and work will be carried out by MAHB.

A MAHB official did not respond to Business Times' query if the the proposed expansion plan is in the works.

The existing Penang International Airport is currently undergoing a RM250 million upgrade, expected to be completed next year.

The land on which the current airport, MASkargo and second cargo complexes are sited is believed to belong to the federal government, via the Lands and Mines Department.

The Penang International Airport was previously known as Bayan Lepas International Airport and its current terminal building was built in 1977 and officially opened in June 1979.

Over the years, it has undergone numerous upgrades, catering to users like Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia, Firefly, and Cathay Pacific, among others.

The airport registered the highest growth rate among airports in Malaysia last year, recording a 25 per cent increase with some 4.1 million passengers in 2010 compared with 3.3 million the year before.

The airport offers extensive connectivity with major cities in Southeast Asia.

To cater to increasing demand, a new cargo centre was opened for operations in 2000 with a capacity to handle 360,000 tonnes of cargo.

Waves of welcome
By WINNIE YEOH Photo by CHIN CHENG YEANG Friday November 25, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...1231&sec=north



Impressive: The Penang Internatinal Airport with new roofs shaped like waves

PINANG leaves symbolising the betel nut or pinang tree which Penang is named after and the design of ombak (waves) to signify Penang’s beaches and sea are a welcome sight for tourists at the Penang International Air-port.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd’s project manager Fazil Ahmad said the concept was drawn up by AHS Architects from Penang.

“Our island is surrounded by sea and the state’s name is derived from the betel nut tree.

“That is why the concept was designed in reference to Penang’s flag and logo with the Pinang tree leaves and the ombak (waves) in-cluded,” he said yesterday.

Fazil said the Pinang leaves and wavy design to make it look like sea waves, were incorporated in the airport’s roof.

He said work on the roof design was almost 70% completed and the airport’s expansion and renovation progress was on schedule.

Fazil said the reported leak on the roof after a downpour recently had been rectified.

The RM250mil expansion and renovation work at the airport is scheduled to be completed by June next year.

The arrival and departure facility was opened to airport users last month to ensure smoother passenger pick-up and drop-off.

Upon completion, there will also be a multi-storey car park and hotel block which will be built via open tender.

Both the car park, comprising 1,218 bays, and the hotel will not exceed 30m in height as per the Civil Aviation Department’s (DCA) Obstruction Clearance Limitations.
