Skytrax award

AIRPORT OF THE YEAR 2006

Singapore Changi Airport is named as the winner of the prestigious "Airport of the Year" title for 2006

After a 5 year period of securing the runners-up Silver Award position in this global study, Singapore Changi takes the top position in what Skytrax described as a "very closely fought contest".

The Top 10 Airports in the world for 2006 :


1
Singapore Changi Airport
Gold Award

2
Hong Kong Int'l Airport
Silver Award

3
Munich Airport
Bronze Award

4
Kansai International Airport

5
Seoul Incheon Airport

6
KLIA - Kuala Lumpur Airport

7
Helsinki Vantaa Airport

8
Zurich Airport

9
Dubai International Airport

10
Copenhagen Airport





Commenting on the results, Mr Edward Plaisted (Skytrax CEO) said

... "after another record-breaking level of customer response to this passenger survey, we have over recent months closely monitored the jostling for the winners accolade. This went down to the wire, with Singapore Changi securing top position in the final month of the survey. The total responses for this 2006 study grew by 1.7 million over year-earlier levels, with more than 7.2 million air travellers casting their votes in this survey, making it the world's largest assessment of airport standards".

"Particular praise for the Singapore Changi title as World's Best Airport 2006 is underlined by the fact this is an airport celebrating its 25 year Silver Jubilee in July - and subsequently having to achieve product and service standards that match and exceed competitor airports, many of which are just 5 or 6 years old".

"Hong Kong International Airport remained the key title challenger throughout the survey, and with a final voting differential of less than 1,000 nominations between these two airports, one realises the high levels of customer satisfaction that both of these leading global airports enjoy. Airports making it into the Top 10 league of world airports is very similar to last year's results, although there has been a marked movement within this particular grouping.

Munich Airport continues to garner considerable favour amongst passengers, ranked 3rd 2006, with Kansai in 4th pushing Seoul Incheon Airport into 5th place this year. Reading through many of the interview comments, there is a clear trend that facilities and service within the airport environment remain paramount to overall satisfaction levels, but ground transportation facilities have increased in terms of importance - this a factor behind Seoul Incheon slipping slightly in the results".

KLIA soars after bagging 2006 Best Airport award
By Kang Siew Li
March 14 2007


DUBAI: The Kuala Lumpur International Airport once again took home three awards at the Airports Council International’s (ACI) Airport Service Quality Awards 2006, including for Best Airport in the 15 to 25 million passengers per year category.

The airport retained the title with 24.13 million passengers handled last year. The San Diego International Airport and Zurich Airport took the second and third place titles, respectively.

KLIA also picked up its second consecutive Third Best Airport Worldwide and Third Best Airport in Asia-Pacific awards.

South Korea’s Incheon International Airport took top honours in these two categories, followed by the Hong Kong International Airport.

“It goes to show that in our part of the world (Asia), we place a lot of emphasis on service levels and not just on airport infrastructure,” Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said after the awards gala on Monday night here.

Bashir said they were pleased with this year’s victory.

“We have received many awards on numerous occasions, but this is one which we think is important because it is a survey that is conducted by the airports and for the airports.

“We believe it reflects the true criteria of the service levels that airports provide.” For the first time KLIA edged out Singapore’s Changi Airport which slipped from second last year to fourth placing for Best Airport Worldwide and Best Airport in Asia-Pacific categories.

“We are always compared with Changi. As such, it is nice to know that we are ahead of them this year and we hope to continue to progress from here.” Bashir believes that KLIA’s higher rankings this year was also attributed to some improvements in its service offerings including the introduction of the WiFi technology throughout the airport, maximising its retail space and maintaining its high cleanliness record.

Meanwhile, MAHB is gearing for four other international airports in Malaysia, namely Penang, Langkawi, Kota Kinabalu andKuching to join in the annual ACI survey.

“At this point in time, we are conducting our own internal surveys to ensure that our airports are up to the mark.

“We hope to include them in the survey in one or two years,” he said.

The airport operator has recently upgraded the Kuching International Airport and is in the process of completing a new airport terminal in Kota Kinabalu.

More than 200,000 passengers filled out the ACI survey forms in 2006, providing benchmarks of an airport’s service performance with airports of similar size, in the same region, over time, and on a worldwide basis.

The Air Service Quality survey covered a range of topics including airport access and connectivity, airport services and facilities, security and immigration, airport environment, arrival services, value for money and overall satisfaction with the airport and airline services.

Etihad Opts For Larger Jets For Its Kuala Lumpur Service


KUALA LUMPUR, March 15 (Bernama) -- Etihad Airways, the national carrier of the United Arab Emirates, is to introduce larger aircraft on its Kuala Lumpur-Abu Dhabi route due to strong passenger demand.

The Boeing 777-300ER has 378 seats, 28 in business class and 350 in economy class - 113 more per flight than the Airbus A340-300 aircraft being used now, the company said in a statement Thursday.

Cargo capacity also increases to 20 tonnes.

Etihad Airways country manager here, Lindsay White, said since the service began just over two months ago, "we have seen an astonishing demand for our flights to Abu Dhabi and beyond.

"The permanent introduction of this larger aircraft this month reaffirms Etihad's commitment to develop its operation from Malaysia, as well as continuing to offer Malaysia-based customers easy access to key international trading hubs in the Middle East and Europe via Abu Dhabi."

Etihad flies six times a week (except Saturday) between Kuala Lumpur and Abu Dhabi.

Lacoste opens shop at KLIA

FRENCH label Lacoste is now available at the KL International Airport in Se-pang. A reception to celebrate the opening of the apparel boutique was recently held at the Traveller's Bar of Pan Pacific Hotel KLIA.

The duty-free boutique is located at the Satellite Building of the airport.

Malaysia Airports managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad when addressing the gathering said Eraman Malaysia, a 100% subsidiary of Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd, carries 13 international brands at KLIA currently.

With its opening, Lacoste has joined the ranks of Burberry, Tie Rack, Guy Laroche, Calvin Klein, Hunting World, Mango, Toscow, Alviero Martini, Trussardi, Gianfranco Ferre and Thomas Sabo.

Some of the brands are also available at the Penang and Kuching international airports.

At a press conference later, Bashir said Malaysia Airports was in final discussion with the Government on the proposed expansion plans for the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT-KLIA) also in Sepang.

However, he declined to reveal the projected cost.

Also at the reception were Miwaki Sdn Bhd managing director Carole Ooi, Devanlay Lacoste regional director Gilles Mennessier and French Trade Commission representative Yassine Amraoui.

Miwaki is the sole distributor of Lacoste in Malaysia.

Lacoste @ KLIA offers Lacoste Sportswear representing the mainstream Lacoste collection for everyday use, Lacoste Sport for functionality and active wear for generic sports.

The immensely popular Lacoste Polo shirt is credited for its fine mesh knit and honeycomb structure ensuring lightweight comfort and softness. The range is available in 55 colours.

A few local celebrities like Mawi, Ashraff Sinclair and Suki, winner of 8TV’s “One In A Million” show, were at the opening. They were later given the opportunity to shop at the boutique.

Malaysia Signs Horizontal Air Service Pact With EU


By Alan Ting

KUALA LUMPUR, March 22 (Bernama) -- Malaysia today signed a horizontal air service agreement for a single aviation market with the European Union (EU), allowing European airlines to fly between this country and any EU member states.

The agreement was inked by Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy at the EU headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.

Under the agreement, at least 200 EU airlines, including those offering charter services, would be able to fly into the country without restrictions, Chan told Bernama when contacted.

Present at the signing were Transport Ministry secretary-general Datuk Zakaria Bahari, Department of Civil Aviation director-general Datuk Kok Soo Chon, special adviser to Transport Ministry Datuk Zaharah Shaari and EU transport officials.

"The agreement removes nationality restrictions in bilateral air service agreements (ASAs) between EU member states and Malaysia.

"This means that any EU airline, not only national flag carriers, will be allowed to operate flights between the EU and Malaysia," he said.

The horizontal agreement does not replace the existing bilateral agreements in place between EU member states and Malaysia but brings them in line with EU laws by removing the nationality restrictions contained in bilateral ASAs.

Malaysia is the second country in Asia after Singapore to sign the agreement with the EU. Singapore signed the pact on June 15 last year.

The EU has also signed similar aviation agreements with Chile, Ukraine, Georgia and Latin American countries besides negotiating similar agreements with 22 other nations.

A move to turn KLIA transit passengers into tourists

Visitors stopping by the transit tour booth minutes after it was launched to gather information about the newly launched guided tours and self-guided tours for transiting passengers.



KUALA LUMPUR: Tourism Malaysia has come up with a novel idea to tap into a new tourist market: Organising tours for passengers on transit at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

The tour package, called Discover Kuala Lumpur (DKL), will target passengers whose transit time at KLIA exceeds four hours.


It gives these passengers a chance to leave the airport and visit Kuala Lumpur while waiting for their flight.

Passengers can opt for either a guided-tour to the KL Tower or a self-guided tour to other tourist spots in the city.

Tourism Malaysia director-general Datuk Mirza Mohammad Taiyab said with DKL, transit passengers could be made into visiting passengers.

"If it works out, these passengers can be turned into returning visitors as these passengers would be able to see what Malaysia is like beyond the KLIA building, even if only for a short while.

"Nearly half the Indian tourists used their transit visas to visit places like Genting Highlands when the Immigration Department used to issue visas-on-arrival until last year," he said.

The visa-on-arrival for passengers from Chennai was stopped temporarily as a large number had misused it by overstaying in the country.

At least three per cent of KLIA’s 24 million passengers per annum are transit passengers.

Mirza, however, said the number of visitors from this marker should not be included in tourist arrival statistics.

(The country is expecting 20.1 million tourists and RM44.5 billion in receipts in conjunction with Visit Mal-aysia Year 2007.)

"They are not considered tourists but will be put into the category of excursionists, day-trippers and working foreigners who do not stay over-night," he said after launching two transit tour counters at the KLIA satellite building.

From the counters, passengers can buy a return Express Rail Link (ERL) ticket and make their way to KL Sentral.

One counter, manned by ERL, caters to passengers who opt for self-guided tours.

They will be given a DKL guide book that recommends a list of attractions in KL and can make their own trip based on the map provided.

The other counter, managed by Menara KL, will provide a guided trip to the tower at RM112 for adults and RM67 for kids.

The guided package includes the ERL fare, entrance fee to the tower, a set meal, a guided nature trail at Bukit Nanas forest reserve and other items.

Beautiful. Architecturally, one of the best I've seen. Kuala Lumpur is really making a mark for herself around the world. Keep the photos coming.

KLIA honours 15 agencies
Thursday July 5, 2007
By GEETHA KRISHNAN


Awards in recognition of their contribution to accolades won by airport.

THE Airport in the Forest had more reason to celebrate recently.

After garnering the AETRA Award for World’s Best Airport under the 15 to 25 million passengers per annum category in 2005, the KL International Airport reclaimed the title during the Airport Council International Airport Service Quality 2006 Awards.

To celebrate winning the awards as well as four other awards this year including Best Airport Worldwide, Best Airport Asia Pacific and The Brand Laureate, KLIA honoured 15 agencies that made it possible for the airport to earn worldwide acclaim and recognition.

The 2nd Annual KLIA Awards was held on June 29 at the Gateway Ballroom of the Pan Pacific KLIA in Sepang. The ballroom was decked in green befitting the airport’s award-winning green theme.

After a rousing performance by the Hands Percussion team followed by a Western course dinner, Malaysia Airports Berhad managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad took to the stage to hand out the appreciation awards.

Later, guest of honour Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy presented the KLIA Awards.

Malaysia Airlines was named Carrier of the Year, AirAsia Berhad as Low-Cost Carrier of the Year, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as Foreign Carrier of the Year and Royal Nepal Airlines as Promising Foreign Carrier of the Year.

Cathay Pacific Airways walked away with the Chairman’s Award.

On the retail front, Mc Donald’s was named F&B Outlet of the Year while Sriwani Duty Free Emporium was named Retail Outlet of the Year.

Indonesian singer Hetty Koes Endang performed her evergreen hits for the crowd. She also indulged in light banter with the audience.
