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.
Wow!!! I never know about these other plans before.

I really liked this airport, really spacious but fairly easy to find your way around. especially compared to my nearest airport Gatwick which makes you feel like a hamster in a maze

Mtrans Tech ready to start KLIA monorail work
By Dalila Abu Bakar
April 4 2006



MTRANS Technology Bhd is ready to develop an 11km connection from the KL International Airport (KLIA) terminal to Sepang International F1 Circuit and the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT).

MTrans Technology chairman Datuk Ahmad Sa'adi said the company and KL Infrastructure Group (KL Infra) late last year jointly submitted a proposal to the Government for the project, at a cost of RM90 million.

MTrans Technology, a 51 per cent Bumiputera-owned company and one of the only three urban transit monorail manufacturers in the world, will be the promoter of the project, while KL Infra will operate the monorail. MTrans Technology and KL Infra are sister companies.

"We are discussing the project with the Government. We can start work on the monorail anytime when the Government is ready," he told Business Times yesterday.

Ahmad said the construction period for the 11km monorail system will be about six months. Under its proposal, the train will have a frequency of every 10 minutes and travel time of 9 minutes. There will be three trains, each with a capacity of 268 passengers.











It was reported that Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL), which ferries air travellers between Kuala Lumpur Sentral and the KLIA, has also submitted a proposal to extend its railway tracks to the newly-built LCCT.

Meanwhile, Ahmad said MTrans Technology has also submitted to the Government a proposal to implement a home-grown monorail system in Penang.

The company's KL Monorail system, which has been running for two-and-a-half years, has carried about 33 million passengers.

Ahmad said MTrans Technology is in discussion to build monorail systems in Saudi Arabia, Dubai, India, China and South Korea - projects in total worth about US$2.51 billion (RM9.3 billion).

The company submitted its expression of interest to participate in two monorail projects in two different cities in India about three months ago, one of which costs about US$400 million (RM1.5 billion).

Apart from that, MTrans Technology has submitted a proposal worth US$600 million (RM2.2 billion) for a monorail system in China and the company is also working with a party in Saudi Arabia to secure a monorail project worth US$750 million (RM2.8 billion) in a city in the country.

FINNAIR LAUNCHES FLIGHTS TO KUALA LUMPUR

FINNAIR LAUNCHES FLIGHTS TO KUALA LUMPUR

Eleventh destination in Asia

Finnair is opening yet another destination in Asia when flights from Helsinki to Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur begin in May 2007. The route will be operated three times a week via Bangkok.

“As a thriving business city and breathtaking leisure destination, Kuala Lumpur naturally complements our Asian strategy. Demand for Asian destinations is growing in both directions and we have excellent connections from all over Europe. It is our goal to open one to two new Asian connections each year and add frequencies to our current network,” highlights Finnair SVP Commercial Division Mika Perho.

Malaysia’s economy is one of the fastest growing in Southeast Asia and hundreds of European companies are already present in the country. Kuala Lumpur is the hub of local business life with its viable infrastructure, good regional flight network and motorways to different parts of the Malay Peninsula.

Sight-seeing and climate-wise, Malaysia is equivalent to neighbouring Thailand as a travel destination. Kuala Lumpur is a modern city with almost a million and a half inhabitants and offers excellent shopping opportunities both in modern shopping centres and on smaller shopping alleys and streets. The city also offers top-rate hotel accommodation.

Culinary delights meet all tastes as Malaysia offers Malay, Indian, Chinese and Western cuisine. Kuala Lumpur has a lively nightlife with numerous bars and clubs. Golfers will find beautiful courses in the city and its surroundings. Those in need of a beach holiday have a choice of tens of islands in both the Indian Ocean and South China Sea. Malaysia’s idyllic inland and coastal villages and highland tea plantations offer a unique experience to those in search of local colour. The area on Borneo Island belonging to Malaysia (East Malaysia) captivates jungle adventurers.

Finnair flies to Bangkok, Guangzhou, Osaka, Singapore, Beijing, Tokyo, Shanghai and Hong Kong in Asia. Flights to Nagoya, Japan begin in June and to Delhi, India in November. Next year’s flights to Kuala Lumpur are available from this May.

great airport - one of my favourites. 10,000 ha in size? wow, that is so big. Compare that to the major airports in Europe ... they must be squashy. Anyhow, great for KL to plan ahead so well - most cities would envy KL for that.

Cheers.

Passenger traffic at KLIA up 7.3pc in first quarter
May 13 2006
BusinessTimes







MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) passenger traffic at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) grew by 7.7 per cent to 5.85 million in the first quarter ended March 31 2006, from 5.43 million in the corresponding period last year.

At the same time, cargo movement at KLIA grew 4 per cent to 159.39 million kg in the first three months of the year compared with 153.29 million kg the last time.

Aircraft movements at KLIA grew marginally by 1.7 per cent to 44,706 compared with the first quarter last year, as a result of a 3.6 per cent decline in domestic aircraft movement which offset the 5.6 per cent growth in international aircraft movement.

Meanwhile, passenger movement at other airports handled by MAHB saw a 5.2 per cent rise to 4.51 million from 4.28 million previously.

Cargo movement at other airports surged by 23.7 per cent, bringing total cargo movement in the first three months of the year up 10.5 per cent to 252.47 million kg.

The traffic growth will probably come to a halt soon as MAS begin to cut more international routes. KLIA cannot be too dependent on MAS flying unprofitable routes to sustain it's growth in passenger numbers. It has to get the international carriers to operate more flights
