To future builders of hybrid airpirts.....just provide lots of walkalators .
yes there is constant complaints even on the newspaper

KLIA2 not passenger-friendly

I HAD the opportunity to pass through KLIA2 recently. This was my second time. The first was when it was newly opened and I gave it the benefit of doubt that things will take time to settle down.

I do travel a lot but I don’t use KLIA2 most of the time. This time I had a bit of time and took the trouble to look around and see the layout of the airport and its functionality, the passenger flow and where the various facilities were located.

I also took the trouble to go to various levels to look at the flow and convenience.

After looking at all the facilities, the check-in and boarding the plane and also when I returned, and on coming out to get a taxi which was an experience by itself.

My conclusion is that this is the worst designed airport I have been in and it is not passenger-friendly.

The children and the elderly were not taken into consideration when designing the airport. More importance was given to the business outlets than the convenience of passengers.

I am not sure about the final bill for this, but as a taxpayer like the rest of the silent majority, I would like an independent enquiry into the people responsible for the design approval and project management.

Directions lacking


I WAS a first timer yesterday at KLIA2 and I concur with what Dr Ameen said in “KLIA2 not passenger friendly” (The Star, Sept 3).

After I bought my taxi coupon I tried finding Exit No 5 as directed by the ticket counter but couldn’t find it.

I took Exit No 3 and to my dismay there were no taxis there only rows of buses.

I asked some guys with walkie-talkies for directions but none could help.

The design of the KLIA2 is certainly not friendly at all.

Horrible experience at KLIA2 taxi stand

I HAD an unpleasant experience using the taxi service at KLIA2 on Saturday after flying in from Bandung, Indonesia.

My wife and I headed to the taxi coupon counter. We had three cabin-sized bags and a golf set.

The directional signs to the counter were poor. The lift to Level 1 where the counter was located was hidden behind under-construction hoarding of two shops.

Two types of taxi service were offered at the counter – budget taxis and metered taxis.

The clerk asked for the destination, collected payment and issued the ticket. We were at the taxi pick-up area at about 4.30pm. What happened next was something usually seen in a Third-World country.

The first driver refused to accept the ticket and claimed that the bags would not fit into the boot. We were passed on to a second taxi.

The “marshall” then appeared and yelled that I should have purchased a “limo” ticket. His lack of manners and abundance of abusive body language was clear.

It was a “you go back and buy a limo ticket or no go” situation. This was despite the fact that there was no “limo” taxi option displayed at the ticket counter.

I stood my ground and had all the luggage loaded into the boot without difficulty. It is about time the relevant authorities take note of this problem and resolve it.

I think the word you're looking for is Terminal, but yes, it was built to cater to low cost carriers.

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.

British Airways resumes daily flights between KL-London in May 2015
The Edge Malaysia | Wednesday 17 September 2014
http://www.theedgemalaysia.com/busin...g_QbJs.twitter

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 17): British Airways will resume daily direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to London from May 27, 2015, after the suspension of the route 13 years ago.

Jamie Cassidy, British Airways’ area general manager for the Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa said now is the “right time” to revive the route due to strong customer demand.

There are 450,000 people travelling between the UK and Kuala Lumpur, as well as 20,000 Malaysian students studying in the UK, which is a huge market for the airline, he told a press conference here today.

Cassidy said lots of developments have happened since 2001 when British Airways suspended the route due to slow demand after 9/11 incident.

“We recognised the world economy is increasingly moving to the East, hence the Asia Pacific region will be more and more important to the global aviation industry,” he added.

Cassidy also said British Airways, as a ‘Oneworld’ member like Malaysian Airline System Bhd (MAS), will “cooperate and compete” with the latter.

He cited the example of Cathay Pacific, the founder of the Oneworld airline alliance, which also competes with British Airways for the Hong Kong route.

The British Airways’ daily direct flights between London and Kuala Lumpur will depart from Kuala Lumpur at 11.05pm local time and arrives at London at 5.25am the next morning, while the flight from Heathrow Terminal 5 will depart at 8.15pm, to arrive at Kuala Lumpur at 4pm the next day.

The ticket will be on sale at 5pm today. All-inclusive return fares start from RM3,696 for World Traveller economy class, RM5,390 for World Traveller Plus premium economy class, RM15,264 for Club World business class and RM29,658 for First class.

Cassidy also noted that the Malaysian Airport Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has been giving a lot of assistance to enable the airline to revive this route.

MAHB has been trying to woo British Airways and Australia’s Qantas Airways to come back to Malaysia.

I'm doubtful that Qantas will fly again from an Australian airport into KL - as nice as it would be to see it. Simply, we are very well serviced. Melbourne and Sydney both have Air Asia, Malaysia Airlines and Emirates linking them into KL. No way Qantas would enter competition there - especially given MAS and EK are partners of QF. However, I could see Jetstar Australia giving it a try - but again, would they be willing to compete with Air Asia?

KLIA bags ‘Large Airport of the Year’ award

KUALA LUMPUR – KL International Airport (KLIA) made Malaysia proud in the CAPA Awards for Excellence in Asia Pacific Aviation 2014 when it won the Large Airport of the Year Award.
The award ceremony was held at a Gala Dinner yesterday at CAPA’s Asia Aviation Summit and LCC Congress staged in Singapore.
Managing Director of Malaysia Airports, Datuk Badlisham said, “We are indeed delighted to win this award as it further elevates KLIA’s status within the global aviation industry.
This award acknowledged KLIA as the fastest growing major airport in Asia Pacific, reflected through KLIA’s 19% growth in passenger movements last year.
In terms of aviation growth, the Asia Pacific region is certainly thriving where it is expected that half of the world’s air traffic growth in the next 20 years will come from within this region.”
Peter Harbison, CAPA’s Executive Chairman who presented the award also said, “KLIA is a worthy winner of the large airport category.
It grew passenger traffic by 19% in 2013, making it the fastest growing major airport in the Asia Pacific region and the only airport in the region’s Top 10 to register double digit growth.
It has been a pioneer in attracting LCC transit traffic, an important new sector with huge potential and in May this year opened a new state of the art terminal designed specifically for low-cost and hybrid carriers.
KLIA has become a pioneer in offering a hybrid solution in today’s dynamic and highly competitive industry and in offering a new model of connectivity.”

Still lots of work to do. The airport operator is just installng 16 additional walkalators umtil end 2015 after loads of complains. We are still not good at planning and execution as the Australians.

The new terminal is a junk. Thats why it fits LCC models nicely. Just a bigger cowshed with multiple levels.

Sorry no way. Flew out of KLIA2 today and Malaysians should be ashamed that this is the first thing tourists see. For a new terminal it is filthy. Paint is peeling, ill fitting fittings and everything was dirty. Really poor form from a country that believes it is developed. Sure its a budget terminal but thats no excuse for it to be so poorly built, especially after all the delays.
