Why does the news keep reporting that its 20km from KLIA? It doesn't look that far, though it does involve a huge detour for passengers originating from KLIA.

Malaysia Opens Purpose-Built Budget Airline Terminal
23 March 2006

SEPANG, Malaysia (AP)--Malaysia opened Asia's first purpose-built budget airline terminal Thursday, as part of government efforts to turn the country into a regional aviation hub amid competition from neighbors Singapore and Thailand.

"This is a new industry that we must make a success, especially to boost tourism," said Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in a speech while inaugurating the MYR108 million facility.

The new terminal will be home to Asia's largest no-frills carrier, AirAsia. It is not immediately clear if other airlines are intending to use the facility but transport minister Chan Kong Choy said the administration would attempt to lure more airlines to Kuala Lumpur.

"It is this government's desire to turn Malaysia into a regional low-cost travel hub," said Transport Minister Chan Kong Choy. "We must take this golden opportunity to lure more companies to fly to Malaysia."

Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand are in direct competition for Asia's cutthroat and booming budget airline business, which analysts say is likely to grow rapidly in the next few years.

Singapore's new budget terminal opens Sunday.

"It is to be expected," Abdullah said of the race between Malaysia and Singapore. "In any competition, there will be some degree of rivalry."

Abdullah cut a ribbon to officially open the terminal and greeted 130 passengers arriving at the airport from the resort island of Penang. It was the first of 19 flights scheduled Thursday.

The Malaysian leader said immigration, customs and transport services at the terminal have to remain at a high standard even if it served budget travelers.

Separately, the International Air Transport Association asked Malaysia for assurances that passengers using the main airport would not be subsidizing those using the low-cost terminal.

Airport tax at the budget terminal, is 22% lower at MYR35.

Describing the difference in airport tax as unfair, the IATA also demanded that the budget terminal be available for any carrier wishing to use its facilities.

"The first priority of any airport should be efficiency and lower charges for all airlines. ... there should be no discrimination for charges with common service levels, such as security," an IATA statement said.

Malaysia's premier said the lower fees were solely to attract airlines to use the new no-frills terminal, and nothing more.

The government decided to build the dedicated terminal to help Kuala Lumpur International Airport compete as a regional hub and counter competition from Singapore and Bangkok, which is slated to open a new airport in the middle of the year.

The terminal will be able to service up to 10 million passengers a year, around four times Singapore's capacity.

The LCC Terminal certainly looks functional, but IMO it looks quite bad. No offence. But I guess cheap airport taxes and increased budget flights to more locales make up for it...

I wouldn't expect to see an architectural masterpiece if I'm paying a cheap fare to fly with a budget carrier. That being said, Stansted is an exception being a very nice and spacious facility.

Malaysia opens Asia's first low-cost carrier terminal

By Kang Siew Li
March 24 2006





NATIONAL carrier Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and budget airline AirAsia Bhd have been urged to work together to bring more people into the country.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said both airlines can be a "champion" in their respective market segment.

"The two airlines are competing for different purposes. AirAsia is competing to be the best in the low-cost carrier (LCC) segment and MAS as a full-service carrier (FSC). Both airlines have to do their best in their respective market," he told a news conference after opening Asia's first LCC terminal at the KL International Airport (LCCT-KLIA) in Sepang yesterday.

He added that tourism is a major income earner for the country, and attracting tourists is a top priority which is only possible with the two airlines operating and working together.

Abdullah also said that MAS and AirAsia are still in discussions on the rationalisation of the domestic sector and is confident that both airlines can reach a win-win situation or "smart partnership".

The Prime Minister has given the two airlines until Monday to submit their plan under the Government's domestic air rationalisation policy.

The Government is of the view that the rationalisation process of the domestic flights sector is needed to ensure the long-term success of MAS and AirAsia.

Meanwhile, Abdullah expressed satisfaction with the new LCCT-KLIA, but warned that maintenance on the airport must be a continuous process.

"Our (Malaysians) maintenance culture is poor. This shouldn't be. These facilities are for all and must always be functional, safe and comfortable," he said.

He added that some degree of rivalry is to be expected between the LCCT-KLIA and the Singapore budget airline terminal at Changi, which is due to open in two days.

Also present at the event was Datuk Tony Fernandes, AirAsia group chief executive officer.

Fernandes said it is AirAsia's intention from day one to work with MAS.

"I think I have a good relationship with the CEO (chief executive officer) of MAS (Idris Jala). Let's see (what the restructuring of the domestic routes will be). I always believe in a win-win situation and that we (AirAsia and MAS) can help each other tremendously.

"A strong MAS is good for AirAsia and a strong AirAsia is good for MAS," he said.

MAS and AirAsia urged to work together to attract more tourists into Malaysia

IATA seeks non-discriminatory treatment for passengers and airlines at KLIA
23 March 2006
M2 Presswire

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) demands assurances from Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad (MAHB) that passengers and airlines using the main terminals at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) will not be subsidizing those using the low cost carrier terminal (LCCT). IATA also demands that the LCCT be available for any carrier wishing to use its facilities.

Last week, MAHB announced a lower departure tax of RM35 for international passengers using the LCCT. At the same time MAHB failed to give any assurance that the LCCT would be available for use by any airline.

The first priority of any airport should be efficiency and lower charges for all airlines. Where different levels of service are provided, cost-related charges can be acceptable, provided there is accurate cost-allocation and transparency. There should be no discrimination for charges with common service levels, such as security.

KLIA's unilateral announcement contravenes the charging principles adopted by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). ICAO principles state that all charges should be based on sound economic principles and be reached through consultations with airlines. ICAO also requires transparency and cost relatedness in the charges.

IATA is ready to work together with MAHB and the Ministry of Transport to ensure an efficient and fair charging model in accordance with internationally agreed principles. IATA urges MAHB to engage in consultations with airlines before any further decisions are made.

Notes for Editors

IATA and the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), which operates Singapore's Changi Airport, had held consultations with regards to the Singapore low cost terminal. Following the consultations, IATA accepted CAAS' proposals on the operating and charging principles for the low cost terminal. IATA also received CAAS' commitment that all airlines meeting the operational criteria, including full service carriers, will be able to operate from the low cost terminal.

Thai AirAsia likely to reduce airfares to KL
25 March 2006
Bangkok Post

Sepang, Malaysia - Thai AirAsia's fares to Kuala Lumpur could be reduced shortly, thanks to lower ground handling costs charged by Malaysia's new budget terminal that opened on Thursday.

Other affiliated carriers - Malaysia's AirAsia and AirAsia Indonesia - which operate in and out of LCC Terminal (LCCT), will also benefit from lower charges.

"Of course, we will pass on the savings to passengers. We have not got the final numbers yet, but the fares will be lower," AirAsia Bhd group chief executive officer Tony Fernandes, told the Bangkok Post.

He said that LCCT's airport tax was 10 ringgit (about 105 baht) lower than at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) currently charges 45 ringgit for international passengers and six ringgit for domestic departures at KLIA. In comparison, the fees at Bangkok International Airport are 500 baht for international flights and 50 baht for domestic ones. They will go up to 700 baht for international and 100 baht for domestic next February.

Thai AirAsia, owned by AirAsia and Asia Aviation, a Bangkok-registered firm controlled by Shin Corp, operates one Boeing 737-300 flight a day from Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur.

AirAsia and its Thai and Indonesian units will initially operate more than 150 flights a day from the 108-million-ringgit LCCT, located 20 km from the main terminal building of KLIA. That number would double over the next few years as the group expanded its operations.

The group is now putting 20 planes, mostly B737-300s and a few Airbus A320s, through the LCCT which has the capacity to accommodate up to 40 aircraft.

Budget terminals boost Asia's low-cost airline sector

Southeast Asia's low-cost airline sector is set to continue its phenomenal growth with this week's opening of the region's first dedicated budget terminals in Singapore and Malaysia, analysts said.

The combined 57 million US dollar investment for the facilities by the two neighbours is a boost for the region's budget airlines which have blossomed despite initial scepticism at the no-frills concept, they said.

"Low-cost terminals are a natural extension of the budget phenomenon we've seen in the past 18 to 24 months," said Shukor Yusof, an aviation analyst with Standard and Poors in Singapore.

Malaysia on Thursday opened Southeast Asia's first dedicated no-frills terminal built at a cost of 29.2 million dollars. It can handle 10 million passengers a year.

Next door in Singapore, a 27.8 million dollar facility starting operations on Sunday can handle 2.7 million passengers annually and is designed to serve five million after future expansion.

"Low-cost carriers are here to stay and will be a significant part of the regional aviation industry," Yusof said.

"The development of two dedicated terminals also illustrates low-cost carriers' growing presence in the airline sector, having transformed it via low fares and emerging route networks."

The two terminals each have only one committed user, AirAsia for the Malaysian facility and Tiger Airways in Singapore. This has not dented analysts' upbeat outlook for the regional budget airline sector.

"I don't think it is much of a concern," said John Koldowski, director of the strategic intelligence centre at the Bangkok-based Pacific Asia Travel Association.

"The low-cost carriers when they first came out, many said it was a fad... well, it has lasted and in fact it has consolidated.

"They certainly stimulated the sector and markets and consumers obviously like what they are receiving."

Growth in the low-cost sector partly explains why industry watchers expect the Asia-Pacific region to lead global growth in air passenger traffic over the next 20 years.

While Malaysia and Singapore are fierce economic rivals and both aim to be the hub for low-cost airlines, analysts said the two terminals will only spur growth in the sector.

"I don't think the proximity of the terminals has too much bearing, especially with low-cost flights between the two countries not currently allowed," said Richard Pinkham, a Singapore-based consultant with the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation in Sydney.

"As both carriers are principally point-to-point travel at this point, it seems not overly likely that the two low-cost terminals will be in competition with one another for passengers, especially with a five-six hour drive separating them," Pinkham said.

Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who opened the terminal at Kuala Lumpur, welcomed rivalry.

"In any competition there would be some degree of rivalry, it's only to be expected," he told reporters when asked about Singapore's facility.

Before the birth of AirAsia in December 2001, budget carriers in Southeast Asia focused mainly on domestic routes but the roaring success enjoyed by the Malaysia-based carrier in servicing regional destinations was the catalyst for the setup of similar outfits, especially in Singapore.

Because they charge ultra-cheap fares, budget airlines do not provide meals or other services but travellers can pay if they want water or coffee.

Similarly, the new budget terminals do not offer all the elaborate facilities found in modern airports.

AirAsia chief executive Tony Fernandes was thrilled with the new home for his carrier which now offers more than 100 domestic and international flights to Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Cambodia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

"It's a dream come true for us. A few years ago we were just a two-plane operation and now we have our own home," said Fernandes, whose business model has been increasingly imitated by national carriers and a host of new low-cost entrants.

He dismissed Singapore's no-frills terminal because of its smaller capacity.

"We are not here to compare with Singapore. We are happy with this place."

His closest rival, Tiger Airways, sees the budget terminal as a step forward for the sector.

"Having a budget terminal allows low-cost airlines such as Tiger Airways to offer low, low fares on a sustainable and consistent basis," said Tony Davis, chief executive of the carrier which is 49 percent owned by Singapore Airlines.

"By having a dedicated terminal, budget airlines would possess a significant cost advantage which gives a competitive edge over other airlines," he said.

Tiger Airways' ground costs will be cut by more than 50 percent by using the new facility at Changi Airport, he said.

Siemens clinches KLIA contract worth RM100m
March 30 2006


SIEMENS Malaysia Sdn Bhd has been awarded a RM100 million contract to supply and install a high-speed baggage handling system at the KL International Airport (KLIA).

The project, awarded by the Transport Ministry, will extend baggage handling from the satellite terminal at KLIA to the Express Rail Link (ERL) platform at the main terminal of KLIA.

The project is due for completion in September 2007, after which KL Sentral can facilitate prompt and convenient baggage reclaim.






The baggage handling system will result in a more efficient and faster baggage handling for the convenience of passengers connecting direct to KL Sentral upon their arrival to KLIA, Siemens said in a statement.

Speed of baggage transfer is expected to increase by fivefold. The additional conveyor line will also increase the capacity of the ERL baggage handling at KLIA, it added.

"Passengers today, especially frequent and business travellers, want minimum connecting time. Siemens' new system allows for baggage transfer at an impressive speed of 36km per hour," president and chief executive officer of Siemens Malaysia Rainer Althoff said in the statement.

The present baggage handling system transfers passenger baggage at 7.2km per hour.

KLIA will be the fourth airport in Asia to be equipped with a baggage handling system from Siemens after Hong Kong, Incheon (Seoul) and Beijing International Airport.

Similar systems have been installed by Siemens in Dubai, Frankfurt, Madrid and other major airports in the world.

In Malaysia, Siemens was also the system and solutions provider of the ERL linking KLIA to the city centre and the MASkargo Handling System at KLIA.

ERL plans link to low-cost carrier terminal

By Zaidi Isham Ismail
[email protected]

March 30 2006



EXPRESS Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL), which ferries air travellers between Kuala Lumpur Sentral and the KL International Airport (KLIA), plans to extend its railway tracks to the newly-built Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT).

ERL chief executive officer Dr Aminuddin Adnan said the train operator plans to lay 11km of additional railway tracks which will take between 12 and 18 months to complete. ERL is currently 57km long.

"ERL submitted its proposal to the Transport Ministry three weeks ago and the contractor will probably be local.

"We are keen to construct the link between the main terminal and the LCCT but we do not know yet when we can start," Aminuddin told Business Times in a phone interview yesterday.

He, however, declined to reveal the cost involved but sources said the project is expected to cost RM10 million and some of its technology such as light trains will be provided by German engineering giant Siemens AG.

Siemens chief executive officer Rainer Althoff told Bloomberg over the weekend that it was prepared to build the rail link to the RM108 million LCCT which was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi earlier this month.

Launched four years ago, ERL has a 30-year concession to operate. It carried its 10 millionth passenger in September last year and targets to ferry 6,000 passengers a day by the year-end.

ERL is 50 per cent owned by YTL Corp Bhd, with Tabung Haji Technologies Sdn Bhd holding 40 per cent and Nadicorp Holdings Sdn Bhd 10 per cent.

KLIA expansion to meet soaring demand

One would have thought the Kuala Lumpur International Airport can accommodate passenger loads for the next 10 or 20 years. Not so. The KLIA will reach its maximum capacity of 25 million passengers per annum in two years and the 9MP has taken cognizance of this.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy says more than 23 million passengers used the airport last year.

“With the opening of the lowcost carrier terminal recently, there is no pressing need to expand facilities in KLIA immediately. However, in view of the increase in passenger volume, we have to start planning now,” he added.

Passenger traffic is forecast to reach 54.5 million passengers in 2010.

Under the 9MP, the Government will build an additional runway and another satellite building.

At present, the 10,000 hectare airport has one satellite building and two 4,000 metre-long runways. So far, about 25 per cent of the 10,000 ha area has been developed.

Chan says there is sufficient land to develop facilities to handle up to 100 million passengers a year, four runways and two mega-terminals,each with two linked satellite buildings.

Communications and navigation equipment for air traffic control such as radar, flight processing and voice recording equipment as well as aeronautical information will also be upgraded to cope with the increasing number of flights to the airport.

The Government will continue to negotiate for additional traffic rights under the liberal or open sky policy with other countries.

Future plans for the airport include hiking trails for jet-lagged travellers, a golf course, a theme park, a shopping centre, hotels and a wetlands nature preserve.
