I was curiously browsing the internet to find out about the old KUL airport. And was really amazed by the design of the old Subang Airport Terminal 1 building. It was a masterpiece of its era, and compared to modern day airport designs, it was still a beautiful building.

Unfortunately, space and location work against its continuation of its existence. And when KLIA in Sepang was opened, the Subang Terminal 1 was demolished in 1998. Sometime when I looked at the architectural design of KLIA (and KLIA 2) in general, it seemed that they both have similarity. So I think the designer of KLIA must have pay homage to the design of the old Subang Terminal 1.

Have a look at these photos:

CAPA South East Asia Outlook: Malaysia


SOUTHEAST ASIA HAS EMERGED AS ONE OF THE WORLD'S FASTEST GROWTH MARKETS. Low-cost carriers have been at the forefront of growth and now account for nearly 60% of traffic within the region. Several have massive orders, with significant numbers still arriving in 2014 despite some deferrals. A dominant theme of the competitive environment is the rapid escalation of the market share battle between the big LCC groups – particularly AirAsia and Lion Air, plus to a lesser extent Tigerair, Jetstar and the emerging VietJet.





Malaysia

Malaysia’s rapid growth from 2013 is unlikely to be sustained. The country was one of Asia’s fastest growing markets in 2013, driven by the launch of Lion Air Group subsidiary Malindo and rapid expansion by the country’s three main existing carriers. 2014 will see more rapid expansion – not at the torrid speed from 2013 but at a rate which will likely exceed demand, putting further pressure on yields and profitability.

Passenger traffic at Malaysia Airports grew by 18% in 2013 to 80 million, including a 17% increase in international traffic and a 20% increase in domestic traffic. Malaysia Airports manages all but one of Malaysia’s main airports.

Malaysia Airlines (MAS) was the fastest growing Southeast Asian flag carrier in 2013, with passenger figures up 29% to 17 million. MAS increased ASKs by 17%, driven primarily by expansion of its domestic and regional international operation. The carrier was able to grow RPKs by 27%, pushing up load factor by 6.3ppt to 81%. But MAS adopted an aggressive pricing strategy, significantly increasing the number of tickets sold at low LCC-like fares as it responded to the launch of Malindo and intense competition from AirAsia and foreign carriers. It does not have the cost base to allow this sort of pricing over an extended period. MAS incurred a USD360 million loss in 2013 as yields tumbled by 13%, including by 16% in 4Q2013.

This is a dangerous strategy, despite being cossetted by its government. MAS’ outlook for 2014 is relatively bleak as yields and profits remain under pressure. Capacity levels will increase further, with a focus on the regional international market. While the rate of capacity growth will be slower than the 17% figure from 2013, it is expected to again be in the double digits. Competition is too intense to expect an improvement in yields.

LCC capacity in Malaysia continues to grow rapidly, putting pressure on all carriers. In 2013, Malaysia’s LCC fleet grew by more than 30% from 73 to 99 as 26 aircraft were added, including 11 aircraft at Malindo, eight at AirAsia and seven at AirAsia X. Malindo, which launched services in Mar-2013, is planning to add another 12 aircraft in 2014. Most of its expansion will be in the international market, starting with several South Asia routes that were launched in 1Q2014, followed in the second half by the anticipated launch of services to North Asia.

Growth at Malaysia AirAsia and AirAsia X is expected to be similar to 2013 levels, when Malaysia AirAsia recorded an 11% increase in ASKs while AirAsia X ASKs were up by 19%. But yields will continue to be under pressure. At Malaysia AirAsia, the average fare was down 18% and revenue per ASK was down 10% in 4Q2013. At AirAsia X, revenue per ASK was down 15% in 4Q2013, including a 22% drop on routes in which AirAsia X and competitors both added capacity. This is an indication of the stiff competition in the Malaysian market and the broader Southeast Asia market.

AirAsia X is only planning to add one aircraft in the Malaysian market in 2014 (as four of its five additional A330s are allocated to Indonesia and Thailand) while Malaysia AirAsia plans to grow its fleet by only four aircraft. While these numbers are significantly down compared with 2013, both carriers added several aircraft in late 2013, which will result in large capacity increases on a full-year basis for 2014.

Competition between the AirAsia, MAS and Lion groups will further intensify in 2014 as Malindo expands into new international markets. MAS will likely struggle as current fare levels are unsustainable given its higher cost structure. Malindo is unlikely to meet its goal in the short to medium term of reaching break-even. Both AirAsia carriers are attempting to cut costs and increase transit traffic in 2014 as part of a bid to improve profitability despite the challenging market conditions. AirAsia has a strong position in its home market but faces some of its biggest challenges in recent years.

The dark grey spot on some photos is caused by a dust particle inside the lens, its so disturbing and annoying, but i cant removed it and sending to a service center is too expensive.

Dear Kopassus,

why did you copy paste posting in KLIA2/LCCT thread into this KUL? it's redundant.

Well, i expected that SkyscraperCity > Infrastructure and Mobility Forums > Airports and Aviation > KUL | Kuala Lumpur International Airport visitors are not all the same people as the SkyscraperCity > Asian Forums > Forum Pencakar Langit Malaysia > Pengangkutan > LOW-COST CARRIER TERMINAL & KLIA 2 people and vv, so in order to give them both the chance to see KLIA2's beauty i posted in both threads.
But it looks like the LOW-COST CARRIER TERMINAL & KLIA 2 have more visitors...

welcome to Malaysia

SEPANG: Both Aerotrains at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) are not operating due to "a small problem", leaving airline passengers anxiously waiting to be transported to the airport's satellite building.

"There is a small problem with our Aerotrains which our technicians are trying to fix. But in the meantime we are providing bus transportation to the terminals," said a representative from KLIA.

"A bus will arrive every 15 to 20 minutes to transport passengers to the terminals.

"We will try fix the problem with the Aerotrains as soon as possible, but we would like to recommend passengers arrive at KLIA three hours before their flight," she said.

Meanwhile, anxious passengers started getting restless waiting to board the shuttle bus to transport them from the main terminal to the satellite building, which would usually be served by the Aerotrains.

"There is a huge bottleneck, and people are pushing and shoving, despite there being several families with young children in the area," said YL Chong, who was catching a flight to London.

"We also had to clear the way for Korean Air passengers, airline crew and a minister earlier," he said.

Chong said that the escalator was still moving even though there was no space for people to move.

"It is very dangerous. There is such poor crisis management," he said.

Chong was initially worried he would not make his flight and said he was stuck in the terminal building for 45 minutes before boarding the bus.

Chong managed reach the boarding gate in time, only to learn that the flight was delayed as many passengers had yet to board the plane.

"The pilot announced three minutes before scheduled take-off that about 60 passengers were still 'missing' due to the Aerotrain breakdown," he said.

Chong informed the pilot of the plane later informed passengers that the flight was ready for take-off, 25 minutes after the scheduled take-off time.

Several netizens also expressed their woes on social media.

"It's a shame that KLIA's contingency plan when the Aerotain malfunctions is having only two buses to ferry nearly 1000 people," tweeted @AthinaMcGruff.

User @MrMarZuki tweeted that he has been stranded for nearly two hours waiting to board the bus.

"Nothing says welcome back to Malaysia like traffic gridlock at KLIA. Both shuttle trains down and only four shuttle buses available," tweeted @stef_c85.

BIGGER AND BETTER: Sepang Aircraft Engineering to expand hangar, repair facilities

SEPANG Aircraft Engineering Sdn Bhd (SAE), a unit of Airbus SAS, will invest RM55 million to expand its aircraft hangar and repair facilities in Sepang.
SAE director Datuk Syed Budriz Putra said the new hangar will have four new lines, which could accommodate up to 17 aircraft at one time.

“We are in the midst of expanding and with the additional clients we are receiving, we need a bigger hangar space to handle more aircraft,” he said during a media familiarisation trip to the company here, organised by the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (Mida).

SAE is a European Aviation Safety Agency (Easa) approved, independent maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO) service provider for commercial aircraft, engines and components.

The company, which was established in 2007, is dedicated to provide Airbus aircraft support services in Southeast Asian region.

It is 60 per cent owned by Syed Budriz while the remaining 40 per cent is held by Airbus.

Although SAE’s core business is servicing the family of Airbus A320, the company is looking to expand its services to ATR (Avions de Transport Regional) turboprop aircraft in the next two years.

Syed Budriz said there are growth opportunities in providing MRO services to ATR in the region and the first airline that SAE is looking to work with is FlyFirefly Sdn Bhd, a unit of Malaysia Airlines (MAS).

He added that SAE also plans to provide MRO services to wide-body aircraft such as A330 in the future after its planned hangar is completed.

SAE’s current clients include Asia’s largest low-cost carrier by passenger number AirAsia Bhd, Tiger Airways and Jetstar Asia, to name a few.

In line with its expansion plan next year, the company is also increasing its workforce from 422 currently to about 522 by next year.
