LCCT expansion to begin next month
By Woon Wu Lin, 01 Feb 2008 7:20 PM

SEPANG: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) expects work on low-cost carrier terminal's (LCCT) expansion to begin next month, said its managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad.

The expansion work would increase LCCT's capacity to 15 million passengers annually from the current capacity of 10 million.

Speaking to reporters at the welcoming of Tiger Airways’ inaugural flight from Singapore on Feb 1, he said construction would be completed by the end of this year or early next year.

Bashir said MAHB had submitted a proposal to the government for a new LCCT in one of its satellite plots of land to replace the current one, targeting its completion in three to four years.

The new LCCT would have a capacity of 25 million passengers annually and located closer to the Express Rail Link (ERL), which links KL Sentral to KLIA, he added.

Bashir said the current LCCT would be converted for others uses. “We have many options. One of the options is that it can be used for cargo instead.”

On its proposed theme park near KLIA, Bashir said “an announcement would be made in two to three months time”.

LCCT may become cargo hub when new terminal is up
Saturday February 2, 2008
By EILEEN HEE

SEPANG: Malaysia Airports Holding Bhd is considering turning the existing Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) into a cargo transportation hub when the new LCCT is ready in the next three to four years.

This was one option being considered, said managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad.

He said the shift to the new location was imminent as the LCCT would not be able to accommodate the projected growth in passenger volume.

The LCCT has the capacity to handle 10 million passengers annually. This capacity would increase to about 15 million passengers upon completion of renovation work by year-end.

“Expansion work on the LCCT will commence by end of this month,” Bashir said after welcoming Tiger Airways, the second Singapore Airline-owned low-cost carrier to utilise the LCCT.

On the new LCCT next to the KL International Airport (KLIA) main terminal, he said it would handle 25 million to 30 million passengers annually.

He also said an announcement on a theme park in KLIA would be made in the next two to three months.

With its inaugural flight yesterday, Tiger Airways has become the 56th international airline to fly to KLIA.

“The arrival of Tiger Airways is a good indication particularly for LCCT-KLIA towards attracting more airlines.

“The service will further strengthen air connectivity between Malaysia and Singapore as it complements the current service by Malaysia Airlines and Singapore Airlines,” he said.

AirAsia and Jetstar Asia also started flying the same route yesterday.

Tiger Airways took to the skies from Singapore in September 2004 with two aircraft in its fleet and three routes in its network. Within three years of operation, it now flies to more than 25 destinations across eight countries in Asia Pacific on a fleet of brand-new Airbus A320 aircraft.

Jetstar Airways is from Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Qantas.
Jetstar Asia, is from Singapore, partly owned by Qantas, but majority owned by Singaporean investors.

However the confusion will continue further because Jetstar has decided to consolidate all its brand under the name Jetstar. So Jetstar Asia is now Jetstar, but still remains different from the Jetstar based in Australia.

by Lim Shie-Lynn, 13 Feb 2008 12:29 AM

KUALA LUMPUR: Passenger traffic volume at Malaysia’s airports rose 6.4% to 45.18 million passengers from 42.47 million passengers last year, said Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB).

Passenger traffic at the KL International Airport (KLIA) rose 9.6% to 26.45 million passengers in 2007, while the total for the other airports grew 2.2% to 18.73 million passengers.

MAHB, which operates 39 airports in the country, saw 17.32 million international passengers passing through KLIA last year, compared with 15.54 million in 2006, an increase of more than 11.5%.

Travellers using domestic services at the KLIA rose 6.3% to 9.13 million from 8.59 million in 2006.

Meanwhile, KLIA and other airports saw a 5.1% decline in air cargo movements to 997.17 million kg compared to 2006.

Emirates to ply Cape Town-KLIA from March
By Surin Murugiah, 22 Feb 2008 9:58 AM

KUALA LUMPUR: Dubai-based Emirates Airlines is set to fly daily to Cape Town, its 100th destination, from Kuala Lumpur International Airport via Dubai from March 30 this year.

The service, its second in South Africa comes on the heels of the Emirates-sponsored Africa Open golf tournament, underlying its increasing focus on South Africa.

In a statement yesterday, Emirates country manager for Malaysia Alban Lee said Cape Town was a regular feature in the holiday calendars of many Emirates travellers, as its natural settings, world-famous landmarks, entertainment facilities and strong tourism infrastructure made the city an ideal tourist destination.

"The new route will also provide additional avenues for more travellers to travel inbound and outbound from Kuala Lumpur especially in light of the extension of Malaysia's Visit Malaysia Year programme until August 31."

"We have for the past 11 years been supporting the country's efforts to position Malaysia as an ideal tourism and business destination and we continue to create awareness about the country in markets we operate in," he said.

Lee said business tourism was a vital growth sector, often contributing more foreign spend per tourist than leisure tourism. "Leveraging on Emirates' strong network of operations in Europe, Middle East and Australasia, Emirates will support the South African government's efforts in boosting business and tourism inflows into the country," he said.

Lee said Emirates had already started promoting Cape Town in Kuala Lumpur as well as through its other 61 offices located in the Middle East, Europe, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific.

He said Emirates' flights would also introduce over 2,000 seats and more than 100 tonnes of cargo capacity per week per direction to Cape Town.

KL airport among world's top 3 for passenger service
Published: 2008/02/25


According to a survey by the industry body ACI, Incheon, Kuala Lumpur and Changi capture the first three positions in the global league table


GENEVA: South Korea’s Incheon, Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur International Airport and Singapore’s Changi are the world’s top three airports for passenger service, according to results of a survey released yesterday by the industry body ACI.

It was the third year in a row that Asian airports captured the first three positions in the global league table. Passengers are asked to assess factors like cleanliness, comfort of waiting areas and ease of check-in.

In Europe the top spot went to Porto in Portugal, in North America to Dallas-Fort Worth, in Africa to Johannesburg, in Latin America to Ecuador’s Guayaquil, and in the Middle East to Israel’s Tel Aviv, ACI said.

A total of 90 airports — and 200,000 passengers — took part in the survey conducted during 2007, said ACI, the Airports Council International which groups 580 members operating 1,647 airports in 175 countries.

Incheon also headed the list in the 2006 survey, followed by Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Changi on level pegging, and Dallas-Fort Worth. Fourth and fifth in the latest survey were Hong Kong and Japan’s Nagoya, according to ACI.

Guayaquil, which serves Ecuador’s Pacific coast business capital and was once a traveller’s nightmare, has recently undergone a total makeover. Currently, like the European leader Porto, it processes under 5 million passengers a year.

By contrast, Incheon and Changi see between 25 million and 40 million travellers pass through, and Hong Kong and Dallas-Fort Worth handle more than 40 million. Kuala Lumpur processes between 15 million and 20 million. - Reuters

In a statement yesterday, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) said of the total, 1.46 million were international passengers while 708,947 were domestic passengers.

Passenger movements at other airports operated by MAHB also saw an increase, to 1.53 million in January 2008 from 1.36 million previously.

For the other airports, cargo movements, however, fell by 5.3 per cent to 26.21 million kilograms from 27.68 million kilograms previously, it said.

MAHB said that aircraft movements at the KLIA went up by 8.3 per cent to 17,067 in January 2008 from 15,763 in the same month last year.

For the other airports, aircraft movements also rose to 22.997 compared with 21,196 previously. — Bernama

Malaysia, Australia to add seats on flights
Published: 2008/03/07

Quote:
Malaysian and Australian carriers will be able to operate another 5,000 seats a week to major gateway airports of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth from this month
MELBOURNE: Australia and Malaysia have agreed to expand the number of seats available on flights between the two nations.

Senior officials from Australia's Transport Department met with their Malaysian counterparts and signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in Canberra yesterday which expands the number of seats on the routes between the two countries.

"Malaysian and Australian carriers will be able to operate an additional 5,000 seats a week to our major gateway airports of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth from this month, with an additional 3,500 seats to be made available from March next year," Federal Transport Minister Anthony Albanese said in a statement yesterday.

The previous arrangement restricted capacity to these airports to 15,000 seats a week for Malaysian carriers and 20,600 seats per week for Australian carriers.

In addition, the new one-off arrangement provides unlimited access to and from airports other than the four major gateway airports.

"The MoU reflects the strong bilateral relationship between our two countries and the new arrangement will give Australian airlines the opportunity to significantly expand their current levels of services and to compete effectively in the Asian market," Albanese said.

"It will also allow Malaysian airlines such as AirAsia X to proceed with their planned expansion into Australia."

AirAsia X operates four services a week into the Gold Coast and is looking to expand its operations to other airports including Avalon, near Melbourne.

"Ultimately Australian travellers, trade and tourism will benefit from the increased competition and greater choice when travelling to Malaysia, and on to other parts of Asia and Europe," Albanese said. - Bernama

No rush to build 2nd satellite building at KLIA
By Anna Maria Samsuddin Published: 2008/03/17
BusinessTimes

Quote:
Malaysia Airports is able to put on hold plans to build the second satellite building due to the presence of the low-cost carrier terminal
AIRPORT operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is not in a hurry to build its second satellite building in KL International Airport (KLIA), estimated to cost around RM4 billion, despite having exceeded the maximum annual passenger volume of 25 million.

As of December last year, the number of passengers handled by the airport reached 26 million, of which seven million of the traffic came from the low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT).

Faizal Mansor, its senior general manager of finance, said MAHB is able to put on hold plans to build the second satellite building due to the presence of the LCCT.

He said looking at the robust growth of budget airlines sector in the region, MAHB is projecting a strong passenger traffic growth to come via KLIA's budget terminal and the expansion of the terminal can accommodate the estimated influx of passengers.


Under the initial plan, KLIA, opened in 1998 at a cost of RM10 billion, was supposed to have reached its 25 million passenger traffic capacity and construct the new terminal in 2004.

However, MAHB was unable to meet the initial target due to incidences such as SARS, 9-11, as well as the bird flu which affected traffic arrival at KLIA as well as globally.

Initially, it was proposed that the construction work of second satellite building would take place in 2007 and scheduled for completion by this year.

KLIA - world's best airport for third year running Published: 2008/04/02

SHANGHAI: THE KL International Airport has won the coveted World's Best Airport title (under the 15-25 million passengers per annum category) in the Airport Council International's (ACI) Airport Services Quality Awards 2007, for the third consecutive year.

"It is no mean feat. We have to work hard for it as we have to face strong competitors, especially in this part of the world. We could not have achieved it if not for the support of all agencies operating in the airport," Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said.

Speaking to Malaysian journalists covering the two-day ACI customer services and facilitation conference and Trinity Business forum here yesterday, Bashir said this would be KLIA's last year to compete in the 15-25 million passenger per annum category.

With its expansion plans, the airport will move into the bigger 25-40 million category this year.

"It will be harder as we may compete with the best airports in the world. At the moment, we have to try to benchmark ourselves to keep on par with Incheon Airport of South Korea. Incheon is the current number one airport in this category. Other contenders would probably be Hong Kong and Singapore," he said.

KLIA also improved its ranking for Best Airport Worldwide and Best Airport Asia Pacific by coming in second.

Singapore's Changi Airport was third. The win coincides with Malaysia Airports' 10th anniversary this year.

"We owe this remarkable feat to the collective efforts and commitment of all government agencies, business partners and associates at KLIA for constantly providing unrivalled passenger connectivity, comfort and convenience to our customers," he added.

Ninety airports worldwide participated in the survey for 2007, which was conducted by benchmarking airports' performance on service quality, facilities and passenger feedback.

Malaysia Airports manages and operates 39 airports in Malaysia, out of which five are international and 16 domestic airports.

The national airport operator also manages and operates 16 domestic and 18 short take-off and landing ports. It also has operations in Kazakhstan, India and Turkey.

The design of this airport looks really "Malaysian." It seems to have local designs incorporated into it almost like Jakarta - Soekarno Hatta International Airport.
