LCC Terminal To Operate By April Next Year
Updated : 22-11-2005
Media : Bernama


SEPANG, Nov 22 (Bernama) -- The low cost carrier (LCC) terminal will be operational by April next year, said general manager of Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Azmi Murad.

The construction progress of the terminal was going on well and ahead of target, he told reporters after the graduation ceremony of Malaysia Airports aviation security staff.

"LCC construction is going on well and we are ahead of schedule by about 12 days. We are targeting to operate it by March or April. Work is progressing well and preparations are in place," Azmi said.

The LCC terminal is designed to handle 10 million passengers per annum and has 30 parking bays to accommodate Boeing 737 and Airbus 370 aircraft.

The terminal will be supported by the existing parking apron and additional infrastructures to be built which include extension to existing parking apron, car park, surface access and other utilities.

Meanwhile, on the graduation ceremony, Malaysia Airports Bhd's chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman said a total of 168 aviation security trainees had completed their Aviation Safety Assistant Basic Course.

He said the six-month course was conducted at Malaysia Airport's Training Centre at the Penang Airport.

A total of 200 participants will take part in the next intake and it will commence next month, he added.

The course is to cater to the needs of security services at all airports in Malaysia.

KL keen on open-skies deals

TOURISM and the travelling public on both sides of the Causeway will benefit if budget airlines are allowed to fly between Changi and destinations in Malaysia, said Malaysia's Deputy Transport Minister Tengku Azlan Sultan Abu Bakar.

Speaking to reporters yesterday at the opening of the two-day Asia-Pacific and Middle East Aviation Outlook Summit 2006 in Kuala Lumpur, he made it clear that Malaysia believes in a liberal air transport policy.

He said: 'We need open-skies arrangements...there will be more tourists and growth in other areas as well.'

The country now has open-skies arrangements with the United States, New Zealand, Taiwan, Austria, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates, among other places.

Malaysia also has very liberal air deals with countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Australia and China.

But he gave no hint as to whether there are any serious talks between Singapore and Malaysia to expand the bilateral air services agreement, which was last revised in 1980.

Currently, Singapore-Malaysia air services are dominated by Singapore Airlines and Malaysia Airlines.

The two airlines operate 182 of the 213 flights a week between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.

The deputy minister also noted that Malaysia was keen to increase traffic at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Between January and October, the airport handled close to 20 million passengers - an 11 per cent jump compared to the same period a year ago.

To encourage more airlines to fly to the airport and get existing customers to add flights, landing and parking charges are waived for new services and additional frequencies.

Changi Airport also has incentive schemes that offer discounts on airline charges and reward carriers that start new services or add flights.

There are also plans to increase revenue from commercial activities like shopping from the current 35 per cent to 50 per cent by 2008, said Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad, chief executive officer of Malaysia Airports Holdings.

It is also a strategy adopted by Changi Airport, which collects about 60 per cent of its revenue from such commercial activities.

KLIA low-cost taxis to shoo away touts

(SHAH ALAM) The opening of a low-cost taxi terminal at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) next March is expected to put an end to the activities of 'taxi touts' there.

Taxi touts at KLIA have been a problem for taxi and limousine operators of Airport Limo (M) Sdn Bhd (ALM), which was given the concession to provide taxi services from the airport.

Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Minister Mohamed Khaled Nordin said the opening of the new taxi terminal would also end ALM's monopoly at KLIA.

'While ALM's service will remain at the main exit doors of KLIA, the low-cost taxi terminal will have its own area,' he told reporters after opening an entrepreneurial convention for students of public institutions of higher learning (IPTA) here on Monday.

The convention, which ends today, is being attended by 500 students and officers from 18 IPTAs, including 13 University Technology Mara (UiTM) branch campuses.

Mr Mohamed Khaled said with the opening of the new taxi terminal, the present queueing system for taxis and limousines at KLIA would also be changed.

He also suggested that Perusahaan Otomobil Nasional Berhad (Proton) produce special cars to be used as taxis nationwide.

He said the Proton Wiras being used by 28,000 taxi operators in the country now were not suitable for the service as they were uncomfortable over long distances and costly to maintain and were not durable.

Meanwhile, Mr Mohamed Khaled said under the Ninth Malaysia Plan, his ministry planned to introduce its Incubator programme aimed at discovering new entrepreneurs in all districts in the country.

He said Mara, which would undertake the task, had requested for an allocation of RM35 million (S$15.5 million) under the plan to provide the necessary assistance to budding entrepreneurs. - Bernama

I like KLIA. Maybe it's just too big. When I was looking for my transfer hotel Pan Pacific I got lost 100x... And noone could tell me exactly where to go. But at the end some guys with golf carts took us to the reception.
And hotel was great.

Why does koala Lumper need an airport so big? Malaysians are just obsessed about building big things to make themselves feel important. Apparently half the office space in their tall twin towers is not even taken up!
