An interesting report on KLIA stellar passenger growth

The passenger growth is driven by
  • Excess capacity at KLIA
  • Role of Air Asia that encouraged transit traffic to KLIA
  • MAS increasing capacity and slashing fares
  • Regional ASEAN and East Asian airports are at full capacity and unable to provide slots.

With KLIA2 adding more capacity followed by the growth if Air Asia and other LCC, KLIA is expected to experience another double digit growth and expected to breach 50 million passengers by next year.

Quote:
Malaysia continues to record some of the world’s fastest passenger growth rates, driven by rapid capacity expansion by Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and AirAsia along with the launch of Malindo Air.

Malaysia Airports has recorded 18% passenger growth for 1Q2014, including 16% at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). This follows growth of 18% for the full year in 2013, including 19% growth at KLIA, making it the fastest growing major airport in Asia.

The rate of growth is expected to slow down for the remainder of 2014 but remain in the double digits for the full year. The growth over the last year has been spectacular but has come at the expense of airline yields and hence profitability.

Malaysia Airports breaks another record with first quarter traffic figures
Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB), which operates all but one of the commercial airports in Malaysia, handled 26.1 million passengers in 1Q2014, representing an increase of 18% compared to 1Q2013. The 26.1 million is the highest figure for any quarter in MAHB’s history.

MAHB has been almost constantly breaking records since 1H2013, when MAS began to pursue aggressive expansion, ending a period of restructuring. The expansion came as new Lion Air Group hybrid subsidiary Malindo, which launched services in Mar-2013, entered the market. AirAsia also has been pursuing further rapid expansion at both its short-haul and long-haul affiliates.

MAHB’s total throughput increased 18% in 2013 to a record 79.6 million passengers. Domestic traffic was up by 18% while international traffic surged by 20%.

The overall 18% growth rate was the highest figure for MAHB in at least 10 years. Even in the initial years of AirAsia growth topped out at 16%.

Malaysia Airports annual passenger traffic: 2004 to 2013



KLIA was Asia’s fastest growing major airport in 2013 – by a wide margin
Passenger traffic at MAHB’s flagship airport, KLIA, grew 19% in 2013 to 47.5 million, with domestic growth of 22% and international growth of 18%.

KLIA accounts for about 60% of all MAHB traffic. MAHB accounts for about 96% of total seat capacity in Malaysia. (Senai Airport in the state of Johor, near the Singapore border, is the only commercial airport in Malaysia not operated by MAHB.)

Kuala Lumpur annual passenger traffic: 2008 to 2013

KLIA overtook Shanghai Pudong in 2013 to become the eighth biggest airport in Asia.

Among the top 10 airports in Asia, KLIA was the only airport with double-digit growth. Its 19% growth rate was over double the next highest

The higher growth at KLIA is partly driven by the lack of space to accommodate growth at most of the other leading Asian airports. The top six airports in Asia all face slot constraints and have generally seen growth rates moderate while KLIA has seen growth accelerate.

As a result KLIA is quickly closing the gap with its two main rivals, Singapore Changi and Hong Kong International (HKIA). Changi saw growth in 2013 slow to 5%, ending three consecutive years of double-digit growth, while HKIA saw growth increase slightly from 5% in 2012 to 6% in 2013.

While KLIA recorded 16% passenger growth to 12.3 million in 1Q2014, HKIA traffic grew by only 5% to 15 million. Changi passenger traffic grew by only 3% in the first two months of 2014 to 8.7 million (Changi has not yet reported traffic for March or the first quarter).

In recent months, KLIA has been only 200,000 to 300,000 passengers below Changi.

MAS expansion drives rapid growth at KLIA

MAS has been the biggest driver of growth at KLIA, which is somewhat surprising as much of the attention in the Southeast Asian market over the last year has been on the rapid expansion of LCCs.

MAS grew passenger traffic by 29% in 2013, including 27% in the domestic market and 30% internationally, making it one of the fastest growing flag carriers in Asia.

Malaysia AirAsia recorded a more modest 11% increase in passenger traffic in 2013 to 21.9 million while AirAsia X grew passenger traffic by 23% to 3.4 million. ASKs were up 11% year over year at Malaysia AirAsia and by 19% at AirAsia X while at MAS they increased by 18%.

MAS flew 10.5 million international passengers at KLIA in 2013, representing growth of 29%, according to MAHB data. The flag carrier captured 32% of the international passenger market at KLIA in 2013. AirAsia as a group had a 39% share of KLIA’s international market, including 24% for short-haul LCC Malaysia AirAsia, 9%, for long-haul LCC AirAsia X, 5% for short-haul affiliate Indonesia AirAsia and 1% for short-haul affiliate Thai AirAsia.

Malindo launched services in late Mar-2013 and in its first nine months of operations was predominately a domestic carrier. Malindo launched 13 domestic and three domestic routes in 2013 although is focusing more on the international expansion in 2014.

See related report: Malindo Air launches India, further shaking up Kuala Lumpur market for Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia

While its entry has shaken up the Malaysian market by breaking the MAS-AirAsia duopoly Malindo has not been the main driver behind KLIA’s growth given its still relatively small size. In a strategy shift, MAS at about the time Malindo launched decided to accelerate capacity expansion in both the domestic and international markets.

As CAPA previously reported, MAS was able to achieve rapid capacity growth without significant fleet growth by increasing aircraft utilisation rates, which was made possible as the carrier has rapidly renewed its fleet. The strategy shift also included a major adjustment in its pricing strategy as MAS decided to pursue higher load factors at the expense of yields.

See related report: Malaysia Airlines pursues rapid expansion but yields and profits are under pressure

While MAS’ ASKs were up 18% in 2013, RPKs were up 27%, resulting in a 6.3ppts improvement in load factor to 81%. While load factors and passenger traffic surged, the carrier’s net loss nearly tripled from MYR433 million (USD140 million) in 2012 to MYR1.74 billion (USD373 million) in 2013.

ASKs at MAS were up by another 21% in the first two months of 2014 while RPKs increased by 24%. Passenger traffic for the first two months of 2014 was also up 24%, including 29% in Jan-2014 and 20% in Feb-2014 with roughly similar growth figures in the domestic and international markets. (MAS has not yet reported traffic figures for Mar-2014. AirAsia and AirAsia X only report figures on a quarterly basis and have not yet released data for 1Q2014.)

Yield decline is discouraging

While all of Malaysia’s carriers have surging traffic figures, yields have been on the decline. MAS’ passenger yield (inclusive of fuel surcharge) was down 13% in 2013 and 16% in 4Q2013. Malaysia AirAsia revenues per ASK were down 10% in 4Q2013 while AirAsia X revenues per ASK were down 15% in 4Q2013

Markets that have seen capacity expansion from both AirAsia and MAS, such as Malaysia-Australia, have particularly suffered from yield erosion as competition has intensified. AirAsia X has nearly doubled capacity to Australia over the last year while MAS increased capacity by almost 40%. Passenger traffic on the Kuala-Lumpur-Brisbane sector was up 39% in 2013, while Sydney was up 31%, Adelaide 27% and Melbourne 25%, according to MAHB data.

Overall KLIA passenger traffic to and from the Southwest Pacific region (Australia and New Zealand) was up 18% year over year. Southeast Asia international passenger traffic was up by 17%, Northeast Asia by 19% and South Asia by 21%. Europe and Africa had the strongest growth, both at 24%, but on a much smaller base while Middle East had the weakest growth at 14%. The fact every major region saw double digit growth is an indication of KLIA’s growing strength as a hub.

While the 1Q2014 figures have continued along the same trend line as 2013, the rate of passenger growth is expected to slow at KLIA and across Malaysia for the remainder of the year. But KLIA should still see double digit passenger growth for the full year 2014, once again likely beating all other major Asian airports and further closing the gap with its rivals.


Malaysian airlines slow pace of capacity expansion but prospects for growth remain


The slower growth comes as MAS and AirAsia both slow down expansion. As MAS started accelerating growth around Mar-2014, large traffic increases for 1Q2014 were expected. The carrier’s growth so far this year is predominately driven from capacity added in 2013. It continues to add some capacity but at a much slower rate.

The slowdown in growth at MAS was expected even prior to the MH370 incident. As MAHB pointed out, it is too early to know the impact - if any - on MAS and KLIA traffic as efforts to find the 777 which disappeared in early Mar-2014 continue.

“Due to the current uncertainties surrounding the MH370 event, MAHB remains cautious as to the passenger traffic developments,” MAHB stated in releasing 1Q2014 traffic figures on 11-Apr-2014. “There was some decline in the growth rates towards the last 10 days of March, but the overall positive growth momentum remained. From our analysis of similar, serious incidents in the last 10 years involving commercial aircraft, there was no major impact on international passenger traffic in those airports involved that could be attributed to such incidences.”

Malaysia AirAsia is slowing down fleet growth following the group’s decision to defer seven of its 2014 A320 deliveries and sell six of its oldest A320s by the end of 2014. Malaysia AirAsia now plans to grow its fleet by a net of four aircraft in 2014 for a total of 76 A320s. It added eight aircraft in 2013, but as several of these deliveries occurred in the second half, year over year capacity figures for 2014 should remain in the double digits.

See related report: Southeast Asia low-cost airline fleet to expand by almost 20% in 2014. Are more deferrals needed?

Malaysia AirAsia X also plans to only add three A330s in 2014 for a total of 21 aircraft compared to seven aircraft that were added in 2013. The slower fleet expansion comes as four of the group’s seven A330 deliveries for 2014 are allocated to its long-haul low-cost start-ups in Thailand and Indonesia. But AirAsia X still expects ASKs in the Malaysian market to be up nearly 50% in 2014 as a majority of its deliveries from 2013 were in the latter part of the year. So from a capacity standpoint, growth at AirAsia X will accelerate, fuelling further growth for KLIA.

Malindo also seems to be slowing down fleet expansion. So far in 2014 it has added only one ATR 72-600, giving the carrier a fleet of six ATR 72-600s and six 737-900ERs. While Malindo at one point indicated it was planning to add eight 737-900ERs in 2014, the carrier is now only expected to add five jets. But given the low base, the capacity expansion at Malindo will be significant.

The overall slower growth for 2014 is an encouraging sign for the overall viability of Malaysia’s airline sector as it could result in an improvement in yields and profitability. While Malaysia Airports will likely not repeat the 19% growth from 2013 for the full year in 2014, the market is still vibrant and growing rapidly.

Malaysia has emerged as one of the fastest growing markets in Asia. MAHB is well positioned as Malaysia and the broader Southeast Asian market continues to see rapid economic growth. KLIA’s position and outlook as a hub should also continue to brighten as the airport has the space to grow, particularly after the upcoming opening of the new budget terminal.

Only facilities and retails at Main Terminal are shown. Something that get my attention:

1) Capsule by Container Hotel - passenger have 3 options to stay within the vicinity now. The other two; Sama Sama Express at International Terminal and Tune Hotel nearby parking building.

2) Parking Valet at Departure - its good for someone want to send their elderly or disabled companion. Shortest point to check-in desk.

3) Thai Odyssey - this establishment will make a lots lots of money! If I have 5 hours of transit, I would definitely pick their 2-3 hours massage package.

4) SPAD & JPJ Office - few days ago, SPAD warned taxi driver not to wait for passenger around the terminal building. Hope they implement this!

I hope to see a decent but functional and clean shower facilities at Transit Area. There are many backpackers and hajj passenger on transit. At KLIA, you only can use shower service at Sama Sama Express at RM30. Very expansive when you compared with Changi only $8.

There actually travellators along the gates.




View from a gate, I was waiting to board the runway tour bus

Pics during the runway tour.It took about 20 minutes and a MAHB personnel provide infor about the KLIA2, the length of runway(4km) etc.

I took photos outside. I was lucky to have a telephoto lens which came in handy inside the cramped bus





You can feel massiveness of the terminal, the tour was really worth it





The buses can give an idea of the size of the terminals


I like the part of this terminal, very modern and sleek design











I we were entering the runway, so no view of KLIA2 for awhile




Then the full view of KLIA2 bridge looms as the bus turns, I was on the right side of the bus fortunately




Proper view of the ATC tower.


Again, my favourite section of the terminal


The ATC tower at maximum zoom


We disembarked and walk towards the bridge and walk across it towards the arrivals area



We were walking over the gates, the departure and arrivals traffic are separated by one level


A travellator and toilets to the right, didnt enter the toilets though.


A small lounge for pasengers to rest ot check their FB




Then its back to the long walk. I hope MAHb provide buggy rides for the elderly.


Entering the sky bridge






View from the sky bridge


A long escalator to the sky bridge as the arrivals walk on the top level.


On the skybridge on a travllator. The walking started to wear me off.


You have to walk tens of meters between the stretches of travellator


Going down the stairs/escalators/lifts to the baggage claim. There are ten carousels.




Immigration area.


Not really sure what this area is for, another lounge/rest area?


The carousels




Before the exit is a Tourism Malaysia booth

Pics of the retail area, lookeds like a normal suburban mall, so didnt take so much pics here

The ERL entrance


I think this is level 1, level 2 is more retail space, level 3 is the check in area. You can use elevator if u want to skip the shops.

Its weird to have this brand at KLIA2






Level 2



Some area with lots of seats




A member of MAHB management Dengilo always talk about?


Damage control?


Conclusion, well I guess it's ready, pray MAH clean all the dusts, glass and the prints on the white walls.

To me I give it 3/5 starts . Its an OK airport design wise but in terms of functionlity wise, it can rival many other 'international' terminals. Quite good for a LCC airport. Hopefuly it will make KLIA an important LCC hub as its is intended to be.
