Malaysia Airports expects challenging year
Updated : 19-12-2005
Media : Business Times


MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is expecting a challenging year ahead as global travel slows and it faces cost pressures with the new low-cost terminal becoming operational in the second half of 2006, a research house said.

In a recent report Affin Research analyst Wong Chew Hann said the firm is maintaining a “hold” call on the stock.

Wong, however, said prospects for a better year remain as MAHB talks with the Government for a financial and corporate restructuring are ongoing.

'The risk is a further delay in concluding the talks and final terms which may not be fully in favour of MAHB,” Wong said.

The talks are believed to include MAHB's concession fees and annual lease rentals from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

It will also include the sale of Sepang Formula 1 circuit to the Government, MAHB's obligations to future capital expenditure involving airports development and parameters for increases in passenger service charge over the longer term.

'The talks are unlikely to conclude this year as we think that there are more ‘pressing’ issues on the Government's plate, especially the financial turnaround of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and the potential alliance of domestic routes between MAS with AirAsia,” the report said.

Wong said the restructuring is significant for MAHB as it would address several uncertainties, namely a RM837 million concession fee and sale of the F1 circuit for RM389 million (both of which are outstanding issues since 2001), annual lease rentals for KLIA (over RM100 million per year) which have been suspended since 2004, and other ‘loose ends’ in its existing airports licence and KLIA concession.

Meanwhile, Wong noted that despite the uncertainties regarding its talks with the Government, MAHB has managed to record a strong 7.7 per cent growth in aeronautical revenue for the nine months of 2005.

Much of the growth came from a 6.5 per cent expansion in passenger traffic and a 4.6 per cent rise in aircraft movements. Growth in passenger movements came mainly from the international segment which rose 13.2 per cent to 12.58 million passengers while the domestic segment grew only 2.2 per cent to 18.08 million.

'This year, we are maintaining our assumption of a 6 per cent growth in passenger movements. For 2006, we are maintaining our 5 per cent growth,” the Affin report said.

It added that 2006 looks like a challenging year with global air travel growth under threat from issues such as security, health concerns, fuel surcharges, and the potential of a slower global economic growth arising from the impact of higher oil prices.

MAHB recent said it is planning to boost its non-aeronautical business to widen its earnings base. It made up 52 per cent (RM432 million) of the airport operator's revenue in the nine months of 2005.

The segment comprises retail business at its airports, rental income, hotel business and events management at the F1 circuit.

stacy,

KLIA is planned for not just to cater the present, but also the future. when fully completed it should have 2 terminals with 4 satelite buildings. what you can see in KLIA today is just 1/4 of the full plan. With 1 terminal + 1 satelite building, KLIA can cater up to about 25 million passengers a year. That figure will soon be reached not too far in the future. KLIA was designed to give passengers a sense of spaciousness and breeze - if that's what made u think it's too big for its purpose ..... albeit it's spacious design, you will find a good crowd during it's rush hours. KLIA is a far sighted airport which guarantees itself a place in the future and definately not a white elephant.

A smart property developer

They turned a piece of land into a gold mountain property zone by building just 2 iconic buildings. Then they began an extremely profitable shopping mall project at that famous location. They build few more high-rise office buildings and 3 hotels, one is called Mandarin Oriental surrounding the Twin Towers. Later they had to expand the shopping mall. They also build some high-rise condominiums, a penthouse facing the twin towers will cost you few million US dollars. They recently build a sophisticated convention centre as a complementary to the set. The Twin Towers' office rental rate is the most expensive in downtown KL. The occupancy rates is 80%, but they don't rush to fill it up with lower rent. They would probably never consider it. Instead they are building a new 60 storey office next to it, they might charge it with lower rate, but it would still consider expensive at this prime location compare to the rest of the city.

Unlike many welfare western countries, Malaysia has to be highly capitalist and "to make themselves feel important". Money is so important. Full-house office occupancy couldn't guarantee a good profit margin. Furthermore the tallest Twin Towers are just an iconic buildings for the developer to generate money, without them, the collection of all their ridiculous high properties value at that location would never as high as it now.

This has to be the most underrated and underappreciated aiports in Asia. Extremely beautiful style with wood roofs and clean hard floors. Very spacious.

I'd love to see all the pictures anyone has. I have a very hard time finding pics on the web for this particular airport, does anyone have construction pics of the new satellite and LCC Terminal? And some pics of the check-in area in the main terminal?

Malaysia Airports expects 10pc rise in KLIA users
Updated : 22-12-2005
Media : Business Times
Story By : AZLAN ABU BAKAR


MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) expects the number of people using the KL International Airport (KLIA) to rise by some 10 per cent to more than 23 million by the end of this year.

MAHB general manager for commercial division Umar Bustaman said this is in line with the airport's ambition to become the most preferred aviation and travel hub in the region.

Last year, the airport recorded a total of 21 million passengers.

“In December 2004, KLIA saw the highest number of international passengers of 2.1 million, making the total traffic in one month the highest in our airport history,” he told reporters after launching the airport's latest shopping campaign themed “Real Value Real Style — A World of Celebrations” in Sepang, Selangor, yesterday.

Also present were KLIA general manager Azmi Murad and MasterCard International Malaysia director for relations and marketing Yau Su Peng.

The airport is targeting more than 2.3 million international passengers in December this year.

The latest shopping campaign is a follow-up to the success of the earlier shopping campaigns which carried the themes “Festival of Malaysia” and “Discover Malaysia”, among others.

The campaign is timely because it is happening ahead of peak shopping periods and the forthcoming festive and holiday seasons.

The five-month campaign will see shoppers in KLIA able to enjoy high redemptions, amounting to over RM500,000 worth of prizes including a Mercedes Benz E-200K which is sponsored by MasterCard.

'No far, we have received more than 8,000 entries for the grand prize contest which started last month compared with 6,000 entries for a period of four months during the last shopping campaign,” Umar said.

Contestants are required to spend a minimum of RM500 in a single receipt or multiple receipts within 24 hours at any retail or food and beverage outlets in KLIA.

To be eligible for the KLIA Shopping “Real Value Real Style” shop and unwrap the nuggets contest, a customer needs to spend a minimum of RM250 at any retail or beverage outlet where the person stands to win Tag Heuer watches, discount vouchers from hotels all over Malaysia and stay at Brunei's Empire Hotel.

Low-cost carrier terminal at KLIA to be ready in March
Updated : 24-12-2005
Media : Business Times
Story By : OOI TEE CHING


THE RM108 million low-cost carrier (LCC) terminal at the KL International Airport in Sepang, Selangor, is already 80 per cent completed and should be ready by March 2006.

“Work is progressing as scheduled. So far, we’ve done 80 per cent.

'If there are no major variation orders from our client, the LCC terminal should be ready by March next year,” Fajar Baru Capital Bhd managing director Wang Nam said.

He was speaking to reporters after the company's annual general meeting held at Seri Petaling in Selangor yesterday.

The Government awarded the contract to build the 30-bay LCC terminal to Fajar Baru Capital seven months ago.

Although costs of building materials like steel structures and cement have risen, Fajar Baru has been able to absorb them.

'The building material costs have been manageable so far,” Wang said.

As a budget terminal, it is designed to be a functional airport without any frills such as aero-bridges. It will be linked to the other KLIA terminals by bus.

Modelled after existing budget airline hubs around the world, namely the Virgin Blue terminal in Brisbane, Australia, Luton airport in the UK and Hahn Frankfurt airport in Germany, it is reported to be the biggest of its kind in South-East Asia.

The LCC terminal in Sepang will be five times bigger than the one at Singapore's Changi airport.

It is expected to reach its maximum annual capacity of 10 million passengers within five to six years.

In the last financial year ended June 30 2005, Fajar Baru's net profit expanded by seven times to RM2.05 million from a net profit of RM281,000 before.

No-frills terminal on course

By SIM LEOI LEOI
[email protected]
4 Jan 2006


Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said this meant that the terminal, part of the Government’s plan to encourage a hub for no-frills airlines in the region, would open as planned in March.

“I am happy to see the construction for the terminal going smoothly. In fact, we are 7% ahead of schedule and the terminal only needs some finishing touches.

“At this rate, we will start operating in March. It will be one of the biggest low-cost carrier terminals in the region, if not the world, and can cope with up to 10 million passengers.

“There is still room to expand to accommodate 15 million passengers, if necessary,” he told reporters after a working visit to the terminal and MASKargo here yesterday.

Chan said the terminal, which was being constructed on a fast-track plan, would serve as a hub for low-frills airlines like AirAsia, AirAsia Thailand and AirAsia Indonesia once it opened.

“KLIA saw some four million passengers of no-frills airlines last year. We think the number will further increase to five million passengers this year,” he said.

“Another low-frills airlines from Thailand has also expressed interest in securing landing rights in Malaysia but no final decision has been reached yet.”

Chan also said two or three ore airlines were expected to make KLIA its hub in the coming years.

On the proposed takeover of Malaysia Airlines’ domestic routes by AirAsia, Chan said discussions were still ongoing although he had “heard very positive reports on the progress”.

Chan said he expected to receive a report detailing measures to boost security at the airport from his deputy Datuk Douglas Unggah Embas today.

“The measures include having freight forwarders’ staff apply for free trade commercial zone passes instead of daily passes, having their own security to guard their cargo and installing more close-circuit cameras at various locations, such as the inspection bay and strategic entrances and exits in the airport. All these measures were effective from Jan 1,” he added.

Chan said he had met with freight forwarding companies over the proposals and they had agreed to give their fullest cooperation on the matter.

Thanks fairul! So I guess they've been building an access road to it as well, seeing it's clear across the tarmac from the PTC. I guess it won't be connected by the people mover in the main terminal, but will the LCCT have access to the Airport Express train that runs to downtown KL?
