Tune hotel at the LCCT by late 2008
By Anna Maria Samsudin
August 16 2007


Quote:
The presence of a budget hotel at the low cost carrier terminal will help make KLIA the hub of budget travel, says a Tune Hotels director
BUDGET travellers using the low cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in KL International Airport (KLIA) will not have to search far for quality no-frills accommodation with the launch of Tune Hotels Sdn Bhd's new outlet - the Tune Hotels.com LCCT - next year.

With an estimated investment of RM20 million, the hotel is due to start operation by late 2008, in time for 20 million passengers that are expected to use the budget terminal.

Spread over an area of 4,046.86 square metres on land leased from airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), the hotel will have 228 rooms as well as food and beverage and retail outlets.

Tune Hotels director Datuk Tony Fernandes said the presence of a budget hotel at the LCCT would help make KLIA the hub of budget travel.

And looking at the projected number of passengers using the budget terminal, he is optimistic of a high occupancy rate at the hotel.

"We are happy with the support shown by MAHB. It certainly shows that they are indeed committed in the quest of turning KLIA into an LCC hub in Asia," he told reporters after the MoU signing between Tune Hotels and MAHB for the design and construction of Tune Hotels.com LCCT in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

MAHB keen on more Tune Hotels near LCCTs

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is keen to partner with no-frills Tune Hotels.com to build more Tune Hotels in the vicinity of low-cost carrier terminals (LCCTs).

MAHB managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said: “That is a possibility, but that depends on the availability of the land and where there is a need to have the hotel.”

Bashir was speaking to reporters at the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) here yesterday between MAHB and Tune Hotels.com for the leasing of land to the latter to build a hotel near the KL International Airport’s (KLIA) LCCT.

Tune Hotels.com founder Datuk Tony Fernandes said: “We will also build another hotel in Kota Kinabalu and hopefully soon in Kuching and Penang and I hope we (MAHB and Tune Hotels.com) can work together to make Malaysia a hub for low-cost airlines.”

He said: “If you look at AirAsia, 18 million people are going to fly AirAsia – 10 million passengers will be going through the LCCT, so occupancy would not be a problem for us.”

“With the plans that MAHB have with the new terminal, I really do believe that we will have two to three Tune Hotels there (at KLIA),” he added.

MAHB: Consultant working on airport master plan
September 5 2007
BusinessTimes

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has appointed a consultant to work on a masterplan that includes the development of all airports in Malaysia.

"The masterplan will forecast passenger growth in the next five to 10 years, traffic link plans and where development should take place," said managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad during a media briefing on MAHB's financial results.

He said MAHB is also discussing with the Government about building a second satellite building at KLIA because it is already handling 20 million passengers now. The present terminal and satellite building can handle up to 25 million passenger.

MAHB net profit for current year to hit RM201mil
Wednesday September 5, 2007
By B.K. SIDHU


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) expects net profit of RM201mil for the year ending Dec 31, 2007 (FY07) and margins to further improve in 2008, said managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad.

It also aims to pay higher dividends, possibly twice yearly in line with the industry’s best practices.

A cash repayment was an option for consideration but this would depend on the company’s performance and financial revamp, added finance services senior general manager Faizal Mansor.

“We can even double the dividend from 4% currently and it could be this year but a lot depends on our financial performance and revamp,” Faizal said at a press conference to announce MAHB’s headline key performance indicators (KPIs) yesterday.

MAHB had cash reserves of RM782mil at the end of last year. It reported RM169mil in net profit for financial year ended Dec 31, 2006. For the first half ended June 30, 2007, MAHB recorded RM127mil in net profit and RM673mil in revenue.

On when the financial revamp would be completed, Bashir said: “We cannot give you a date but the end is near.”

An early sign that the financial revamp is nearing the tail end was the recent transfer of MAHB’s role in the Formula 1 (F1) championships to Khazanah Nasional Bhd.

The transfer does not mean an adverse impact on MAHB's revenue. On the contrary, MAHB would be better off since it can now better focus on its core activities. Moreover, the F1 was not really a major profit contributor.

MAHB is also fast shedding its image as a laggard government-linked company (GLC), thanks to efforts to improve its operations and earnings as well as to reduce costs.

The three KPIs announced yesterday are EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) of RM441mil for FY07, return on equity (ROE) of 6.8%, and airline service quality (ASQ) awards where it aims for KL International Airport (KLIA) to be ranked among the top three in the overall category.

For FY06, the company's EBITDA was RM384mil, ROE was 6.3% and KLIA ranked No. 3 in overall category as the world’s best airport in the 15 million to 25 million passengers per year category.

“We wanted to set the headline KPIs after our financial restructuring but we decided to announce it now. The three key drivers would track the progress and performance of our businesses and operations from the financial and operational perspective.

“So far, we are moving in the right direction,” Bashir said.

A lot more is on MAHB’s plate. Apart from wooing more airlines to fly into the 39 airports it manages in the country, it also expects to start work on the expansion of retail space at KLIA by 2008.

It is also in talks with the Government on the expansion of the existing Low-Cost Carrier Terminal and setting up a new low-cost terminal at KLIA.

Bashir said MAHB was also in discussion with the Government for a second satellite building at KLIA, given that it would reach full capacity in the next few years. For this year, Bashir expects passenger volumes at KLIA to reach the 20-million mark.


MAHB was also working on plans to develop the land around KLIA, he said, adding that the Kuala Terengganu airport would be developed on a “big scale”.

Outside Malaysia, MAHB manages two airports in India and one each in Kazakhstan and Turkey.

Jetstar eyes 70pc seat factor for KL-Sydney flights
By Goh Thean Eu
September 11 2007


Quote:
This is one route that has the potential to be strong in both directions, and that is very exciting for Jetstar as an airline, says its chief executive officer
AUSTRALIAN low-cost carrier Jetstar Airways Pty Ltd aims to fill at least 70 per cent of its planes for flights between Sydney and Kuala Lumpur over the next 12 months, helped by strong demand from Malaysia and Down Under.

The company, which started its Sydney-Kuala Lumpur flight on Sunday, is offering direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and Sydney three times a week.

Its first Jetstar plane, which arrived in Kuala Lumpur last Sunday, carried 267 passengers.

"Over the first year, we will be very happy with an average of 70 per cent seat factor, and the initial signs are positive. We think we will achieve that, and we will be profitable in the 70s," said Jetstar chief executive officer Alan Joyce.

To fill up 70 per cent of its plane, Joyce needs to have about 210 passengers in each flight. According to him, the initial response is "exceptionally strong".

"We are very encouraged by the response. This is one of the routes that has the potential to be strong in both directions, and that is very exciting for us as an airline," Joyce told newsmen in Kuala Lumpur after the official launch of its new service yesterday.

Some 150,000 Malaysians travelled to Australia last year, while 168,000 Australians visited Malaysia during the same period.

"With some 20,000 Malaysians studying in Australia every year, Jetstar will offer them a great new service," said Australian High Commissioner Penny Williams in her speech yesterday.

Joyce expects demand from Australia and Malaysia to grow, and intends to increase the flight frequency.

Jetstar is also planning to fly to southern Europe via an Asian hub, and Malaysia is one of the four countries under consideration, along with Singapore, Vietnam and Thailand.

The Kuala Lumpur-Sydney flight has the potential to grow to daily services, and Kuala Lumpur has the potential to become the hub into Europe, Joyce said.

The only negative is that the Low Cost Terminal has no train and is soooooo far away by bus from the main terminal.

Jetstar sees KL as possible Asian hub
by Sharon Tan, 11 Sep 2007 11:43 AM


KUALA LUMPUR: Low-cost carrier Jetstar may use Malaysia as its Asian hub when it flies to south Europe in the near future following its inaugural flight to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport last Sunday.

Jetstar chief executive officer Alan Joyce said the carrier was now in talks with airport authorities in Europe, but a decision on its flights to that continent would not be made until the end of next year.

“There are a lot of opportunities for us here in KL,” he said on the possibility of Malaysia being used as its Asian hub.

Last Sunday, Jetstar’s inaugural Sydney-Kuala Lumpur flight landed at KLIA, Qantas’ first scheduled flight from Australia since 1998, with 260 passengers. The return flight to Sydney had 160 passengers. Jetstar is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qantas.

Joyce said Jetstar hoped to increase the Sydney-KL flight frequency to daily from three times weekly since there was no restriction for it to fly the route.

He said a particular constraint it was facing was the shortage of aircraft, which would be resolved by August next year when it took delivery of 15 Boeing 787 Dreamliners (B787-8) over a period of 15 months for its long-haul fleet.

“We won’t have any extra aircraft arriving until August 2008, so some time during that period and depending on the performance of the market, we could be going into daily operations,” said Joyce, adding that Jetstar was also looking at the Melbourne-Kuala Lumpur route.

Joyce said Jetstar was the fastest growing international carrier and it was also looking at new destinations such as Taiwan, Korea, India, China, southern Europe and North America.

Asked on Malaysian low-cost carrier Air Asia X’s upcoming flight to Australia, Joyce said the airlines were competing on different routes and different markets.

“We also want to point out that Air Asia X’s long-haul product is very different from our product. People should be aware of that,” he added.

On its Asian expansion plans, Joyce said it was working to align the products and operations of Jetstar Asia and Pacific Airlines, which are based in Singapore and Vietnam, respectively.

“Those two are a start of our intra-Asia plan. Jetstar Asia has been making money and has improved significantly over the last year.

“Once we have established and got them completely aligned, then we will look further for opportunities in the region,” he added.

Qatar Airways upgrades Doha-KL-Bali route with A330
September 20 2007




Quote:
All seven weekly services between Doha and Kuala Lumpur will be served with the long-range aircraft non-stop
QATAR Airways has upgraded its Doha-Kuala Lumpur-Bali route with the larger A330 effective September 17.

It was earlier operating the route using an A300, which is gradually being phased out of the airline's fleet.

In a statement issued yesterday, Qatar Airways said it is now using two aircraft types on the Doha-Kuala Lumpur-Bali route - an A330-200 featuring 22 business class seats and 259 in economy, as well as an A330-300 with 30 business class seats and 275 in economy.

The upgraded A330s feature up to 53 more seats than the A300.

All seven weekly services between Doha and Kuala Lumpur will be served with the long-range aircraft non-stop.

The aircraft will also operate on all four weekly flights on the Kuala Lumpur-Bali sector, a route launched in March this year.

Qatar Airways launched flights to Malaysia in December 2001 with three flights per week and progressively increased capacity to the current frequency of seven services.

Qatar Airways currently operates a modern fleet of 58 all-Airbus aircraft to 78 destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, the Indian subcontinent and North America.

The highlight of Qatar Airways' expansion this year has been the launch of flights to New York (Newark) and Washington - the airline's first move into the North American market.

debris not covered by grass or lawns might have some dangers of being sucked up into jet engine which can cause damage and destroy it. Although bare surface can be considered safe as well. No harm in trying to grow some greens. Just make sure no rabbit inhabitate the area or we might have new problem of rabbit strike!
