MAS offers RM9 tickets, AirAsia seats start at 99 sen

By WONG SAI WAN

KUALA LUMPUR: Another price war has broken out between Malaysia Airlines and low-cost carrier AirAsia, with both companies offering heavily discounted domestic tickets.

For the first time, MAS is offering tickets at less than RM10 each for two local routes, while AirAsia is pricing its flights from 99 sen.

The price war means more good news for domestic and international travellers. Both carriers have cited Visit Malaysia 2007 for their offers.

MAS' RM9 fare is for the Kuala Lumpur-Kuantan and Penang-Langkawi routes while the budget carrier’s 99 sen offer is for most routes between Kuala Lumpur and state capitals.

MAS is offering 250,000 tickets for 23 destinations and passengers have seven months to utilise their tickets from March 1.

AirAsia meanwhile has set aside 500,000 seats at discounted fares of up to 99% for all destinations departing from its four Malaysian hubs (Low Cost Carrier Terminal in KLIA, Johor Baru, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching), with the travel period from April 1 to July 31 this year.

Malaysia Airlines senior general manager, network revenue management Bernard Francis said the airline expected all 250,000 discounted seats to be snapped up.

Said AirAsia executive vice-president Kathleen Tan: “Our objective is simple – offer low fares to stimulate travel. We are confident that our sizzling offer of up to 99% discounts will encourage people to fly and open up a new market of first-time flyers.

“How can one resist a holiday when the price of a ticket is cheaper than a plate of nasi lemak?” said Tan.

AirAsia has also reduced prices for several regional destinations, ranging from RM19.99 for a ticket to Phuket to RM69.99 for a ticket to Macau.

19,000 MAS tickets sold within 12 hours
Thursday February 1, 2007
TheStar


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has sold 19,000 seats worth RM10.6mil for international flights barely 12 hours after its Malaysia Airlines Travel Fair kicked off.

Starting from midnight yesterday, people have been jamming its website and its 24-hour call centre as well as its offices to grab tickets with discounts of up to 70%.

MAS commercial director Datuk Rashid Khan said the overwhelming response was very encouraging.

“It's definitely a good start to the fair,” he said.

The travel fair will end on Feb 6 and tickets booked are for the travel period of Feb 24 to Sept 30.

A total of five million seats are available to customers through the MAS 24-hour call centre, at 3,452 appointed travel agents and at its ticketing offices in Malaysia and Asean countries.

Bookings can also be made through the airline's website, www.malaysiaairlines.com.

The call centre can be contacted at the toll-free number 1-300-88-3000 if calling from within Malaysia.

Meanwhile, AirAsia announced on Tuesday that it was setting aside 500,000 seats at discounted fares of up to 99% for all destinations departing from its four Malaysian hubs (Low Cost Carrier Terminal in KLIA, Johor Baru, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching) for travel between April 1 and July 31.

KLIA is of course fantastic but I would rate it 4 star. The service ( both customer and facility ) should be upgraded to reach the levels of ICN, HKG and SIN.

KLIA wins tourist, hotel, restaurant and catering award

Email us your feedback at [email protected]


KL International Airport’s efforts to promote commercial activities were rewarded when it was judged “The Most Outstanding Establishment in the Tourist, Hotel, Restaurant and Catering Field for the Year 2007”.

Malaysia Airports was also presented with the gold badge “Global Quality Management” as special work recognition.

Malaysia Airports senior general manager of operation services, Datuk Azmi Murad received the award at the 32nd International Award for Tourist, Hotel and Catering Industry gala dinner in Madrid, Spain on Jan 31.

“This is an acknowledgement of our effort to promote commercial activities at KLIA. The award is indeed another big accomplishment for KLIA, reaffirming its status as the World’s Best Airport,” he said.

Azmi said the achievement would augur well with the Visit Malaysia Year 2007.

The International Award for Tourist, Hotel and Catering Industry recognises the prestige of companies and organisations working for tourism and the hotel and catering trade.

KLIA won its first award for 2007 when it won “The Brand Laureate”, for Best Brands Transportation Airport 2006-2007.

KLIA passenger traffic seen rising 6.9pc in 2007


February 3 2007


MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is expecting 25.79 million passengers to travel through the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang this year, up 6.9 per cent from last year.
Passenger traffic growth at the KLIA slowed to 3.9 per cent last year from 10.2 per cent in 2005.


More than 24.13 million passengers passed through the airport last year compared with 23.21 million in 2005, MAHB revealed in its filing to Bursa Malaysia yesterday.


Most of the increase came from international passenger traffic, which rose 4.8 per cent to 15.54 million from 14.83 million in 2005.


The number of people using domestic services was up 2.4 per cent to 8.59 million from 8.39 million.


Meanwhile, the KLIA saw higher growth in air cargo last year compared with the 0.3 per cent increase in 2005. Total cargo movements stood at 672.89 million kg in 2006, up 2.9 per cent from the level in 2005. Aircraft movements rose 0.7 per cent to 182,548.


Systemwide, 42.47 million passengers flew through MAHB's 39 airports last year, up 2.2 per cent from the 41.57 million in 2005. This growth was lower than the 5.4 per cent growth in 2005.


Total air cargo volume handled by these airports last year was 1.05 billion kg, up 5.1 per cent from 999.3 million kg in 2005.

MAHB recommends new LCC hub

By B.K. SIDHU

PETALING JAYA: A new low-cost carrier (LCC) hub will take shape next to the present satellite and main terminal buildings (legacy hub) at the KL International Airport (KLIA), if the Government accepts the recommendations of airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB).

The legacy hub now caters to full-service travellers and the LCC hub, budget travellers, and they could be linked by a sky train. For the ease of travellers, MAHB has also recommended that the Express Rail Link, which connects KL Sentral with KLIA, be extended to the LCC hub.

“We have identified the site and made our recommendations. The design for the new satellite and terminal buildings (LCC hub) will be different as it would take into account the operational requirements of the LCCs, just as we did for the present LCCT (low-cost carrier terminal),'' MAHB managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said when contacted by StarBiz.

“We would be getting AirAsia Bhd involved in designing the terminal,” he said.

Bashir said MAHB was “fully supportive of the Government’s efforts to promote low-fare travel and the company would continue to provide and develop infrastructure to accommodate low-cost travel.”

The search for a new site began because the LCCT is only a temporary site. The capacity of the present terminal can be expanded to handle 15 million passengers a year from 10 million now, but it certainly cannot cater to the growing demand for low-cost air travel. The land around the LCCT is inadequate for future expansion.

Currently, the LCCT handles six million passengers but, by the turn of the decade, the number could well exceed 12 million.

Under the original master plan for KLIA, there is ample land to house four satellite buildings, two terminal structures and five runaways. If all the buildings are constructed, KLIA should be able to handle 100 million passengers a year.

For now, only one satellite and terminal building is available to handle 25 million passengers a year. There is no denying that a new satellite building needs to be constructed next to the legacy hub to meet future growth in full-service passengers, but before 2015.

What is more urgent now is a permanent structure for low-cost air travel since growth in this sector is robust. Therefore, MAHB's proposal makes a lot of sense. It would not just allow both the legacy and LCC hubs to be housed next to each other but, in terms of logistics, it will provide connectivity for passengers who need to change from low-cost to full-service carriers.

On a broader perspective, such as move can potentially attract more airlines to KLIA, given the combined number of passengers at both hubs would be higher that it is today.

This would help Malaysia realise its dream of becoming a transport hub since the combined passenger capacity (of both legacy and LCC hubs) at KLIA in the future could well exceed 60 million.

Bashir said the LCC hub would only be ready in 2015. In the meantime, upgrading work at the LCCT would continue to cater to AirAsia X’s long-haul flights, he said. The expansion involves the extension of the apron for wide-body aircraft, expansion of the terminal building, review of the baggage-handling operations, cark-park extension and a food court.

Currently, AirAsia, its Thai and Indonesian subsidiaries, as well as Cebu Pacific Airways operate from the LCCT. In July, AirAsia X will begin flights to Britain.

MAHB plans new incentive scheme for airlines in May
By Kang Siew Li
February 5 2007
BusinessTimes


To bring back major airlines, the plan includes a three-year waiver on landing
fees, discounts on airport tax and free parking for the first three hours





AIRPORT operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) plans to introduce an incentive scheme for airlines in May this year that includes a three-year waiver of landing fees and discounts on airport tax or passenger service charge (PSC).

The incentive package will replace the current scheme which expires on May 2.

MAHB managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said that under the newly-proposed five-year scheme, new foreign airlines and existing airlines that add new destinations or frequencies to Malaysia will continue to enjoy a three-year waiver on landing fees, and then 75 per cent and 50 per cent discounts for the following two years respectively.

However, the current full waiver on parking fees will cease to be offered.

"Parking will be free for the first three hours, after which pricing will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis," Bashir told Business Times.

He said this is not expected to have a substantial impact on airlines as parking rates at the KL international Airport (KLIA) in Sepang and the four other international airports in Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Penang and Langkawi are already relatively low and most airlines will turn their aircraft around within three hours.

MAHB is trying hard to bring back major airlines that have stopped flying to Malaysia, namely British Airways. It has already approached the airline and discussions on the matter are ongoing.

As an added incentive to enhance the appeal of the proposed scheme, MAHB will introduce a growth incentive scheme.

"This incentive will be available to all airlines, including Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia Bhd, and is aimed at rewarding airlines that bring in additional passenger traffic to the country," said Bashir.

Under the proposed growth incentive scheme, existing airlines will enjoy 10 per cent rebate on the PSC for the first 10 per cent growth they achieve in passenger load factor over base year 2006.

"The rebate in PSC will be increased from 10 per cent to 15 per cent for the second 10 per cent growth in load factor over 2006, and then to 25 per cent for any growth above 20 per cent over 2006," Bashir added.

He said MAHB will use 2006 as the base year when calculating the rebates to be given, but for new foreign airlines operating flights from this year onwards, it will use 65 per cent load factor as the base.

The anticipated increase in new services and carriers to the country from the proposed incentive scheme is expected to generate additional revenue for MAHB.

The new incentive scheme is seen as being linked to MAHB's request to raise the PSC at the 39 airports it operates.

MAHB has been in talks with the Government for the past two years to raise the PSC and the landing, parking and aerobridge charges at the airports it operates. It is still awaiting the Government's approval. Analysts expect MAHB to get a fair chance of receiving increases in its PSC this year.

When asked, Bashir said the company will abide by whatever decision the Government makes in this regard.

In May 2002, MAHB began waiving landing and parking charges for foreign airlines flying into KLIA, which currently serves 49 airlines, and the four other international airports.

Bashir said that when the current scheme expires in May, the incentives offered during the five-year period by the company will amount to some RM70 million and will have benefited 23 foreign airlines.

These include Lufthansa, Shenzhen Airlines, Thai AirAsia, Thai Sky Airlines, Jet Airways, Pakistan International Airlines, Air Nepal International and Etihad Airways.

Nice new additions to KUL's satellite terminal.
It also has Dome cafe now...and MNG has open its doors with some fancy collections as well. The ambience in the satellite terminal has definitely improved now.

Arrived late at night from SIN last night....and I was surprised to see the whole terminal was very busy, with more than half the crowd being foreign visitors. Quite nice to see.

KLIA Wins 2006 World Best Airport Award


DUBAI, March 13 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) notched another mark in its success story when its flagship airport, the KL International Airport (KLIA), once again reaffirmed its ranking as the World's Best Airport in the 15-25 million passengers per annum category for the Airport Council International's Airport Service Quality (ASQ) Awards 2006.

San Diego Airport in the United States and Zurich Airport in Switzerland were placed second and third in the category.

The award presentation was held here last night in conjunction with the two-day Airport Council International (ACI) Airport Business and Trinity Forum hosted by the Dubai International Airport, which kicks off today.

MAHB managing Director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said the award was very important because it was given by the ACI's survey on airport services and infrastructure which gave passengers full satisfaction.

"We are very pleased to receive this award today, I think it is really rewarding for us and we hope to do better next year as the category and other airports will be more competitive and challenging for us," he told reporters after receiving the award.

He said the wi fi services had contributed the most to KLIA's success as it was the first airport in the world to provide the service without any charges.

The KLIA also maintained its third place in both the Best Airport Worldwide and Best Airport in Asia/Pacific categories, behind leader Incheon Airport, Korea, and Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok Airport while Singapore's Changi Airport was fourth.

When asked about KLIA being placed ahead of Changi Airport, Bashir said: "This is a very nice feeling. As you all know, we are always compared to Changi Airport in Singapore and it's nice to know that we have done very well this particular year and hope to continue to progress."

He said it is not just about the airport infrastructure but the quality of the service provided was more vital to please the passengers and winning the award had proven this.

"There are 28 features in the ACI ASQ survey and we had to monitor each feature to ensure that we will not slip behind and to ensure that we had given the good services. We will continue upgrading our services and facilities to meet the increasing demands of our passengers," he said.

ASQ is a survey conducted by the ACI by benchmarking airports performance on service quality, facilities and passengers feedback in several categories, namely Regional Awards, Size/Domestic Awards and Special Awards. A total of 81 airports worldwide participated in the ASQ Survey 2006.

KLIA first participated in the survey in 2002 and has won the award for the same category since 2005.
