KLIA hotel bags top award
2008/04/28, NST

SEPANG: Pan Pacific Kuala Lumpur International Airport has been named Asia's Best Airport Hotel for 2007, the seventh time the hotel has won this award in its 10-year history. Presented by Business Asia magazine, the award cited the hotel's consistently high standards in providing a broad spectrum of services and facilities to business travellers.

Hans Winsnes, general manager of Pan Pacific Kuala Lumpur International Airport, said the award was a testament to the hotel's commitment to its guests.

Sharing the same anniversary as Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Pan Pacific KLIA has the privilege of being in partnership with an award-winning airport.

KLIA recently bagged the coveted World's Best Airport award bestowed by the Airports Council International for airport service quality in the 15-25 million passengers per annum category in the 2007 survey.

In acknowledging this winning partnership, Winsnes said: "It is an honour to be located at one of the world's best airports where a high standard of service and excellence prevail.

"KLIA's adherence to world-class service and facilities has been an inspiration for our hotel as we continuously strive to surpass the expectations of our discerning guests."

The hotel is owned by KL Airport Hotel Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd.

Established in 1998, the Best Business Hotels in Asia Awards covers more than 95 hotels across 14 Asia-Pacific countries in 17 categories.

This award recognises hotels that offers business travellers excellence in terms of service and facilities.

Business Asia, a publication owned by Sydney-based First Charlton Communications, is circulated internationally.

It specialises in business news and reporting rising market trends across the Asia-Pacific region.

Nominees for the award were chosen by a panel of industry experts with winners established by popular votes through a ballot paper published in Business Asia and online at First Charlton's website.

CGK is much different from KLIA and has its own nice design. Both Malaysia & Indonesia are twin countries and has 99.99 % of the things in common. Secondly, KLIA is designed by a Japanese architect Kisho Kiurokawa who according to him, has combined Islamic Dome patterns with Malaysian staple designs with modern touches = KLIA design. I feel the design is fairly original and genius.

KLIA bags third Airport Service Quality award
Published: 2008/05/16




THE KL International Airport (KLIA) recently scored a hat-trick as the world's best airport in the 15 million-25 million passengers per annum category, its third win since 2005.

But the airport operator will find it a challenge to repeat the feat in this year's Airport Service Quality (ASQ) Awards, because KLIA will be making its debut in the 25 million-40 million passenger per annum category.

The ASQ Awards programme is an annual recognition given to airport operators based on a monthly survey conducted by the Airport Council International, the sole worldwide association of airports.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad expects to see stiff competition in the race to become the world's best airport this year.

He said KLIA's rivals in the category include Singapore's Changi Airport, Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok International Airport, and South Korea's Incheon Airport.

"We have won it in the 15 million-25 million passengers per annum category for the last three years. This year we go into the big league, in division one," he told Malaysian journalists covering the presentation of the ASQ Awards in Shanghai recently.

Apart from winning the 15 million-25 million passengers per annum category, KLIA was ranked second both for the Best Airport worldwide and for the Asia-Pacific region.

Incheon Airport edged KLIA by a mere 0.08 point. Overall, KLIA scored an average of 4.70 points.

"Incheon will be the benchmark for us to take KLIA to a better position for this year's award. Incheon has always been in the forefront in the last three years, while for the second, third and fourth has always been tossed around among Changi, Hong Kong and KLIA.

"At one stage, Hong Kong was number two, we were third and Singapore fourth. Now, we are second, Singapore third and Hong Kong fourth."

On areas that MAHB needs to give immediate attention to so that KLIA would be able to improve its position, Bashir said KLIA has done well in almost every area but needs to work harder as its South Korean counterpart as well as other airports such as Changi and Hong Kong are also doing their best to improve their services. - By Kamarul Yunus

Malaysia deploys special police force to guard Kuala Lumpur airport after shootout

International Herald Tribune
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia: Malaysia deployed a specially trained police force to patrol its main international airport Thursday after a brazen armed robbery last month triggered worries about security lapses.

A team of 141 personnel skilled in guarding high-risk areas such as government buildings began making its rounds at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, a federal police spokesman said on condition of anonymity, citing protocol.

The security beef-up comes after robbers opened fire April 9 on two airport currency exchange workers and escaped with a bag of Singapore currency worth US$1 million (€650,000).

The new round-the-clock patrols will "protect our country's image in the eyes of the world," national police chief Musa Hassan said in a statement late Wednesday.

"The public and visitors to the airport are advised not to feel troubled by the force's presence because it is meant to ensure safety at the airport," Musa said.

An elite police squad trained in counterterrorism measures has also been placed on standby to respond if needed at the airport.

Previously, civilian security guards were the main presence at the airport. Shortly after last month's shootout, a dozen police officers were stationed there.

The robbers, who fired handguns, fled in getaway cars after wounding five people. Four suspects were arrested but later released because of insufficient evidence.

A closed circuit camera did not record footage of the robbery because it was set on standby and could not be switched on fast enough, airport officials have said.

Kamaruddin Mohamad Ismail, an airport management official, said Thursday that officials will spend about 2.2 million ringgit (US$670,000; €440,000) to upgrade more than 1,300 security cameras.

Malaysia Airports sees RM1b yearly sales at KLIA outlets
By Hamisah Hamid, Published: 2008/05/21, BusinessTimes


MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) expects sales of more than RM1 billion per year to come from the retail, food and beverage (F&B) and service outlets at the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang by 2010, a year after its retail optimisation project is completed.

Its retail arm Malaysia Airports (Niaga) Sdn Bhd (Eraman Malaysia) is expected to contribute RM450 milllion or 45 per cent to the total sales.

General manager (commercial services) Umar Bustamam said MAHB also expects to collect RM130 million in rentals per year from these outlets, an increase of 52 per cent from the current RM84 million.

The retail optimisation project, which is slated for completion in July 2009, aims at expanding the airport's commercial revenue by increasing the average spent per passenger through the maximisation of retail space and improvement of retail placement.

"We are turning KLIA into a vibrant shopping area where the shops will be located at various arms of the satellite building and the layout would make all shops visible to passengers.

"Renovation works have started on May 18 and is scheduled to be completed by July next year," he told a media briefing in Sepang yesterday.

The airport operator is investing some RM50 million in the 14-month retail upgrading project. This is the first major renovation works done at the RM10 billion airport since it was opened 10 years ago.

Currently, there are 61 retail, F&B and service outlets at the KLIA satellite building that generate about RM700 million in annual sales.

Umar said when the renovation works are completed, the number of outlets will be increased to 87, of which 56 are retail, 19 are F&B and the remaining 12 are service outlets.

"Overall, the project would increase retail, F&B and services space by 62 per cent.

"Retailers will get direct benefits from this project as the new facade, ambience and design will attract passengers to their outlets," he said.

Apart from a greater variety of brands, restaurants, services and facilities, travellers will also be able to experience natural rain forest at the focal point of the satellite building with the introduction of the "jungle boardwalk".

Umar said the next retail optimisation project at the KLIA will be implemented at the contact pier, where the boarding halls for various regional flights are located.

"The project involves the installation of stalls along the contact pier and it is expected to be ready by end of July this year," he said, adding that the cost will be minimal.

KLIA celebrates 10th anniversary
Thursday May 22, 2008, By CHARLES FERNANDEZ, TheStar


ABOUT 1,000 people, comprising the KL International Airport (KLIA) community took part in a telematch held in conjunction with the airport’s 10th anniversary

Participants from Malaysia Airports and 22 government and private agencies pitted their brains and brawns in games such as gunny sack race, dice race and baggage race, among others.

The half-day event was launched by Malaysia Airports chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman.

Aris said the telematch was also held to strengthen ties between all the agencies.

He said KLIA was one of the well-known airports in the world.

“We won the award as the World’s Best Airport three consecutive times. I have no doubt that KLIA will continue to evolve and maintain its position as among the best in the world,” added Aris.

A host of activities have been planned throughout the year which include the KLIA dinner and treasure hunt and an exhibition on the history of KLIA which is currently being held at Level three and five of the main terminal building.

The exhibition showcases the history and development of KLIA since it opened in 1998.

MAHB allocates RM400m capex this year
Published: 2008/05/30


MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has allocated RM400 million for its capital expenditure (capex) this year, its senior general manager of finance Faizal Mansor said.

He said a big chunk of the amount will be used for its retail optimisation plan.

"The amount has been approved by the board of directors," he told reporters after the company's annual general meeting in Sepang yesterday.

On the performance of its retail business, Faizal said it has been recording an annual growth of 15 to 20 per cent in the past few years.

The airport operator also expects to see a higher contribution from its advertising division at about RM35 to RM40 million this year compared with RM12 to RM15 million last year.

On the outlook for the company this year, MAHB managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad Abdul Majid said the company was aiming for a revenue growth of 10 per cent.

For the financial year ended December 31, 2007, MAHB recorded a revenue of RM1.38 billion compared with RM1.15 billion previously. Its pre-tax profit jumped to RM403.6 million from RM263.3 million previously.

MAHB expects five new airlines to operate at the KL International Airport (KLIA) this year.

Currently 53 international airlines fly into KLIA. - Bernama

Jetstar To Cease Flights To Kuala Lumpur From September
June 06, 2008 20:56 PM
By Neville D'Cruz

MELBOURNE, June 6 (Bernama) -- Australian budget airline Jetstar, a subsidiary of Qantas, will withdraw its service from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur from Sept 1, 2008, because of high fuel prices.

Qantas also said that several other services to Asia would be affected.

Malaysia's charge daffaires in Canberra, Ahmad Fadil Samsuddin, has alerted Malaysians in Australia to the Jetstar decision, saying those who had confirmed their bookings after Sept 1 would be contacted by the airline to make alternative arrangements.

In announcing the changes, Qantas chief executive Geoff Dixon said the Japanese and Southeast Asian markets would be most affected.

"At current fuel prices, the group would lose more than A$100 million operating to Japan under our existing structure," he said in a statement.

Dixon said flights between Japan and Queensland would still offer a capacity of more than 11,500 seats a week. The Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation said Qantas had targeted the Japan route after years of declining demand.

The number of passengers flying between Melbourne to Japan had been in steady decline since 2004 when total passenger numbers were at 122,000 a year.

Last year, passenger numbers between the two destinations fell from 111,000 to 83,500.

Tourism groups fear North Queensland will be hardest hit by the international route rescheduling which also sees the Cairns/Osaka/Nagoya sector flown by Jetstar being withdrawn.

Qantas' 14 flights a week from Cairns to Tokyo will be replaced with a daily Jetstar route. A new Jetstar Gold Coast to Tokyo route -- five flights weekly -- will also be introduced.

Under the changes, Jetstar will withdraw its Sydney to Kuala Lumpur service to free up an A330 plane and replace its existing three times a week A330 service between Sydney and Ho Chi Minh City with five A320 return services on a new Sydney to Darwin and Ho Chi Minh City route.

Jetstar aircraft will replace Qantas on the Perth-Denpasar and Perth-Jakarta routes.

KLIA has been around for 10 years and it hasn't been expanded yet? No third runway or another + shaped terminal?

Economic downturns in 1998-1999 and SARS in 2003 have severely hit KLIA passengers movement. Moreover, a seperate LCCt was built for the low cost carrier passengers, thus expansion has been posponed. However, a new permanant LCCT that can accomodate up to 30 million passengers will be built and scheduled to be operational in 2012.
