More passengers at KLIA, thanks to LCCT
25-05-2006
The Star


PUTRAJAYA: The new low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) has contributed an additional five million passengers to the KL International Airport.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said this meant that KLIA could look forward to handling some 25mil passengers this year alone.

He said all airports in the country had registered a healthy growth in passenger and cargo traffic in the first quarter of the year.

Usually, the first three months of the year is the low season for passenger traffic. But overall, our airports charted a growth of 6.5% in the number of passengers, from 10mil to 10.7mil passengers, he said.

This is encouraging as KLIA alone registered a 7.7% growth to 5.8mil passengers, from 5.4mil.

KLIA has also been voted the best airport in the category of those handling between 10mil and 15mil passengers in a recent customer satisfaction survey in Dubai. Overall, KLIA came in fourth, he said.

On another matter, Chan said both the Finance Ministry and the Public Services Department had approved the setting up of Road Safety Department branches in states. These will operate from July 1.

International flavour for KLIA outlet
Thursday June 1, 2006
By CHARLES FERNANDEZ
TheStar



HUMAN traffic in the KL International Airport (KLIA) is largely made up of travellers from around the world and, to cater to this crowd, eateries need to offer a wide range of cuisines.

And, this is exactly what patrons would find at the all-day dining F&B outlet, Degrees Restaurant in Pan Pacific KLIA.








A general view of the outlet’s interior.






Having undergone extensive refurbishing and upgrading at a cost of RM2.5mil, Degrees (formerly known as Pasta and Mee) promises first-class hospitality and service to its patrons of diverse ethnic groups.

Most of the patrons are travellers with different food cultures and tastes and, with this mind, the chefs have been trained to whip up delicacies that will satisfy the discerning tastes of both international and local patrons.

Chef de cuisine K. Tamilvanan, fondly known as Mike among regulars at the outlet, has been tasked with firing the imagination of patrons with a display of culinary excellence, and he is ably supported in this effort by a team of talented chefs who all have their own specialties.









A patron helping himself to the offerings at the Salad Bar.







“Quality is our trademark and the speciality here is that the food is served piping hot,” said Tamilvanan.

Everything about the new-look Degrees is designed to feast one's senses,” he added.

The open kitchen allows customers to watch “live” the various chefs displaying their culinary skills.

The open-kitchen concept also makes the dining experience more personalised as it evokes scenes of a family kitchen with the kitchen staff and diners being family members, whether one is a traveller in transit or a regular visitor to the restaurant.

The outlet offers guests 180 dishes of Asian, International and Fusion cuisines to whet their appetite, including mouth-watering favourites such as Mee Mamak, Ayam Perchik, Chapati, Kebabs, Chicken Tandoori, Naan and Puri that are, of course, best eaten piping hot.

Pasta lovers will undoubtedly be unable to resist the variety of home-made pasta served with freshly prepared home-made sauces brimming with fresh aromatic ingredients.

The food on the buffet corner is constantly replenished, with the emphasis on freshness and taste to make the dining experience memorable.

“Dining at Degrees is nothing short of having a home-cooked meal, albeit a lavish one in the luxury of a relaxed and elegant surroundings,” said sales and public relations manager Sharon Wong.

Degrees has two private rooms for special functions and the kitchen boasts extensive installations of new cooking equipment.


DEGREES RESTAURANT, Pan Pacific Hotel KLIA, Jalan CTA 4B, KLIA, Sepang (Tel: 03-8787 3333 ext 2488). Business Hours: 24 hours.

^ the original masterplan does not include provision for LCC Terminal. u can check in M'sian forum, the airport layout is conceptualised on modular design. the current LCCT inclusion was based on available land/plot nearest to the satelite bldg/MTB..

KLIA upgrade to cost RM180mil

BY CHAN CHING THUT

SEPANG: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd will spend about RM180mil to upgrade facilities and services at KL International Airport (KLIA) this year, said senior general manager (operations) Azmi Murad.

The upgrading works include expanding the second runway, taxiway and lounges to accommodate the Airbus A380 aircraft.

“Work to expand the width of the runway began two days ago and will take three months to complete. The shoulder of the runway will be increased by 15 metres on both sides.

“Three lounges – C17, C27 and C37 – in the satellite building are being upgraded as well and work should be completed by end-May next year,” he told reporters after a ceremony to mark KLIA's 8th anniversary.


Azmi Murad
The celebration was commemorated with a reception of its 138 millionth passenger (total passengers since KLIA began operations in 1998) and the 46 millionth domestic passenger.

Azmi said the airport was expected to handle 24.5 million passengers this year, a 7% increase over last year, which recorded 23.12 million in passenger movement.

“The target for growth in passengers this year also includes those at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal KLIA (LCC-T). We expect five million passengers to use the LCC-T this year, a 25% increase over the four million last year,” he added.

This year, KLIA has been voted as the World's Best Airport in the 15-25 million passengers per annum category in the Aetra 2005 survey. It also bagged the third place for both Best Airport Worldwide and Best Airport in Asia Pacific categories.

RM10 coach ride to KLIA
Saturday July 29, 2006
By STUART MICHAEL
TheStar

TRAVELLERS can now save RM50 if they use the Airport Coach to and from KL Sentral to KL International Airport (KLIA).

Unlike the usual KLIA Express, which is priced at RM70 for return trip, passengers travelling to KLIA from KL Sentral will be charged RM10 for one-way using the Airport Coach.

The same fare of RM10 is charged from the KLIA bus station located on the ground floor of KLIA.

The Airport Coach bus located at KL Sentral skybus terminal, on the ground floor, departs every hour starting from 5am daily and the last bus departs at 10.30pm from KL Sentral. From KLIA, the first bus departs from the airport's main terminal building at 6.30am and the last bus leaves at 12.30am.

The journey between KL Sentral to KLIA takes about an hour each way. KLIA Express takes 28 minutes to make the journey, and the train leaves every 15 minutes.

Airport Coach Sdn Bhd accounts executive Noor Zalifah Abd Karim said the Airport Coach had stopped operations from Jalan Duta and Jalan Chan Sow Lin on May 31 and started operations from KL Sentral on June 1.

Although Airport Coach Sdn Bhd has placed notices in all their four buses informing passengers about the switch of bus terminals, many travellers are still not aware of it.

“When we started business on the first day, we only collected RM200 for the day. Now, it has increased to RM600 to RM1,200 a day. However, many of the buses that ferry people from KL Sentral to KLIA have only about 10 people.

“This is a good service as travellers can save money,'' said Noor Zalifah.

“We also provide bus service to hotels, and tickets are priced at RM20.

“For regular travellers or KLIA staff, we have a monthly pass priced at RM180,'' added Noor Zalifah.

Yes, KLIA is an excellent airport. Singapore Changi was always considered the best in the region but if they are going to have any hope of competing with KLIA then their new terminal 3 is gonna have to be something really special.
