Latest update on KLIA 2 aka Hybrid Budget Terminal. The airport terminal and facilities is gradually being transferred to MAHB and will undergo ORAT before being opened for use by May.

MAHB gets klia2 main terminal

By Bilqis Bahari | [email protected]


SEPANG: The main contractor of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2) handed over the main terminal building to Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) yesterday, sources told Business Times.

The main contractor - a UEM Construction Sdn Bhd and Bina Puri Sdn Bhd joint venture - has, therefore, met its deadline for the handover.

What is left to be done before the Operational Readiness and Airport Transfer (Orat) process can begin are rectification works on the problems that had delayed the handing over last month, as well as finishing works, such as the beautification of the internal part of the airport.

Sources said the RM4 billion project is still on track for its official opening on May 2.

They said although the main terminal building had been delivered, MAHB would only obtain the Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) by April, which is when the sewerage work rectification is expected to be completed.
The CCC will mean the main terminal building is safe to be occupied by the public.

"The ideal situation is to have the CCC and CPC (Certificate of Practical Completion) for the Orat to be carried out uninterrupted.
"However, MAHB is forced to compromise to carry out Orat with many constraints.
"Although there is no CCC, Orat with stakeholders will continue as long as the safety letter of recommendation from the Fire and Rescue Department is obtained," a source explained.

The various stakeholders, including government agencies such as the Immigration Department and the Customs Department and retailers and airlines, are expected to participate in the Orat process by Monday.
Orat is the rehearsal of airport operations. The preliminary Orat, or the first phase of the testing of equipments and facilities, was conducted internally by MAHB without involving other stakeholders.

UEMC-Bina Puri was supposed to deliver klia2's main terminal building on January 31. However, it had to be rescheduled due to several issues that had cropped up during the inspection by the Fire and Rescue Department last month.
The issues included the rectification of the sewerage pipeline and completion of road and drainage systems, smoke extraction system as well as escape route signage and facilities.

Due to this, the department, Sepang City Council and Indah Water Konsortium were unable to issue a letter of recommendation to the project consultants for the issuance of the CCC.

Meanwhile for KLIA Main Terminal, MAHB reports healthy passenger movement in January, possibly due to the Chinese New Year effect.

MAHB Reports 25.8 Per Cent Increase In Passenger Movements For January

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 28 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) said passenger movements for January 2014 grew by 25.8 per cent to 6.97 million compared with January last year.

In a filing to Bursa Malaysia today, MAHB said the traffic performance was a record for January.

"The increase was contributed by Chinese New Year, sound traffic performance by new airlines which began operations last year, aggressive routes and capacity expansion of local carriers and oneworld effect.

"It is also contributed by competitive airfares and Visit Malaysia 2014 campaign," it said.

MAHB said KLIA passenger movements increased by 24.2 per cent to 4.23 million passenger movements compared with January 2013.

International passengers grew by 22.8 per cent while domestic passengers grew by 27.7 per cent, it said.

It said KLIA's main terminal passenger volume continued last year's high growth by 29 per cent to 2.24 million while the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal grew by 19.2 per cent handling 1.99 million passengers in January 2014.

Cargo movements registered 10 per cent increase compared with January 2013, reaching 78,283 metric tonnes, it said.

MAHB said January 2014 aircraft movements grew by 16.5 per cent, registering 65,889 movements, while average load factor continued to remain above the 72 per cent range.

It said the double-digit expansion in airlines seat capacity for the immediate months ahead would provide optimism that growth would continue to the next half of 2014.

I thought Iraqi Airways was once considering to change their color to blue?

With the events of 9/11 behind us a lesson learned was the fire protection & safety features of the twin towers. I could be wrong but I believe this would be the drive behind the stricter laws.
No it is not.
Even with better fire protection the twin towers would have come down eventually.
The background for the law might be more the fire at DUS in the 1990s.
If there is a fire, people must have more time to escape the terminal.

Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

BaconButty I finally understand the true horrors of globalization.

Wow! Even during testing phase KLIA 2 already looked much better when compared to Kuala Namu or Juanda T2 when they opened for regular traffic....

That's what I was thinking. Even the train fare could be higher than the one to KLIA 1.

KL Sentral to KLIA2 will cost RM35, which is the same as the fare to KLIA.

I think it's pretty swanky but not quite overboard, easy on the eyes and comfortable, comparing to the old LCCT …
