'Jetstar only carrier to end KL service'
Published: 2008/06/13, BusinessTimes

JETSTAR Airways is the only airline so far that has decided to stop flying to Malaysia as the air travel industry grapples with high fuel cost.

"Except for Jetstar, no other airline has notified us of plans to stop flying to KLIA (KL International Airport) at the moment," Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad told Business Times.

Jetstar, Australian carrier Qantas' budget arm, said last Friday that it would stop its Kuala Lumpur-Sydney service from September 1 because of high fuel prices.

Tune Hotels set to open at LCCT
The Star, Saturday June 21, 2008
By EILEEN HEE

SEPANG: Tune Hotels Regional Services Sdn Bhd has invested RM20mil in its new Tune Hotels.com LCCT, which is sited in the vicinity of the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT).

According to founder and director Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes, the hotel is targeted to open in early 2009 and would cater to about 20 million passengers a year at the LCCT. The new six-floor hotel at the LCCT would have 222 rooms, with the ground floor housing the lobby and food and beverage retail outlets.

“The group aims to have 100 hotels up and running within three years and these would include sites outside Malaysia, such as Kuta and Legian in Bali, as well as locations in the Philippines and Thailand,” he told reporters after the ground-breaking ceremony for Tune Hotels.com LCCT yesterday.

“In Manila, we have found a site behind the US embassy and there is also another site that we are finalising,” chief executive officer Mark Lancaster said. “In Thailand, there will be a Tune Hotels.com each in Bangkok, Pattaya and possibly in the next week or so in Phuket.”

The Tune Hotels.com flagship hotel in Kuala Lumpur was launched in May 2007, followed by Tune Hotels.com 1Borneo Kota Kinabalu in April this year. Other hotels under the Tune.Hotels.com chain in Malaysia will be launched in Ipoh, Penang, Johor Baru and Miri.

Meanwhile, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd senior operations general manager Datuk Azmi Murad said there was still “positive growth' in terms of passenger movements at the LCCT and KL International Airport.

He said the overall passenger traffic grew 78% in April/May 2008 compared with a year earlier, while traffic at the LCCT was up by 30%. “For the third quarter, people have planned their travel. If there is a slowdown, it could be in the fourth quarter due to fare increases,” he said.

MAHB: LCCT expansion works to be finished in 11 months

By LOONG TSE MIN

SEPANG: Work on the expansion of the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) is “on track” and should be completed in 11 months, says Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) operations senior general manager Datuk Azmi Murad.

The expansion, being undertaken by MAHB, is expected to boost the LCCT capacity by 50% to 15 million passengers a year from 10 million at present.

“A permanent site for the LCCT will be decided at a later stage,” Azmi told reporters at the launch of Touch 'n Go payment facility for parking at the LCCT and KL International Airport (KLIA) yesterday.

MAHB had previously announced that a permanent terminal, which would handle up to 35 million passengers a year, was expected to be built in three to four years.

On the current expansion, Azmi said MAHB would be adding another 400 seats in the waiting areas.

Meanwhile, toll fare payment operator Touch 'n Go Sdn Bhd expects an average revenue of RM240,000 per month from the parking facilities at the KLIA and LCCT.

Chairman Datuk Yahya Yaacob said the company expected to capture about 10% revenue of the parking payment traffic at the two airports as the remainder would likely be in cash. The two airports are the 23rd and 24th parking payment sites for Touch 'n Go.

On the impact of high petrol prices, Touch 'n Go chief operating officer Hasni Zarina Mohamed Khan said the company expected a slowdown in road traffic.

This, she said was likely to be offset by the higher use of light rail transit and monorail where the Touch 'n Go card could also be used.

On the surcharge for the use of its card for parking, Hasni said: “Some sites have it, and some do not.

“I think it's a matter of convenience for the customer, with the charge being only about 10 sen or 20 sen more.”

There were also plans in the near future to expand the use of the Touch 'n Go card for retail outlets at both airports, Yahya added.

Following the high acceptance rate in the Klang Valley, it also planned to expand the use of its system for parking payment to Johor Baru and Penang by next year, he said.

Skytrax votes KLIA as world’s fourth best
Wednesday July 16, 2008, TheStar

KLIA has been voted as the fourth best airport in the world by British-based air travel research company, Skytrax, Sin Chew Daily reported.

KLIA which was placed fifth last year, is among the four airports in Asia that made it to the top five list this time around.

Hong Kong International Airport was voted the best, followed by Singapore's Changi Airport and Seoul's Incheon International.

Munich Airport in Germany was fifth, followed by Kansai International Airport in Japan, Copenhagen Airport in Denmark, Zurich Airport in Switzerland, Helsinki Airport in Finland and Cape Town International Airport in South Africa.

This is the seventh time the Hong Kong International Airport has won the Airport of the Year title since the award was launched in 2001.

The research was conducted on more than 190 airports worldwide between August 2007 and May this year. A total of 8.2 million tourists from over 97 countries were interviewed.

> China Press reported that a 38-year-old salesman gobbled up 10 and a quarter bowls of chicken rice within 10 minutes.

Liang Yi Jie beat 11 other finalists to win the chicken rice eating competition in Singapore.

Liang who tips the scale at 90kg, said he loved chicken rice and ate it at least twice a week.

Among those in the competition was Taiwan's Liu Chao Qiang.

The 45-year-old security guard had previously won beef noodle, hamburger, ice-cream and Chinese dumpling eating competitions. He, however, only managed seven bowls of chicken rice in the competition.

Eramine Pills Worth RM1.5 Million Seized At KLIA
July 17, 2008 19:03 PM

NILAI, July 17 (Bernama) -- Customs officers seized 120,000 Eramine-5 pills worth RM1.5 million at the mail and courier centre of the KL International Airport (KLIA) on Tuesday.

Packed in three boxes, the pills which were sent via an express mail service from Taiwan were confiscated by the Customs headquarters' narcotics branch at 6.30pm, said Customs deputy director-general (prevention) Datuk Mardina Alwi.

She said the boxes were labelled as computer parts and toys by three different senders from Taiwan to three different addresses in Kuala Lumpur.

Initial investigation showed that there were no occupants at the addresses on the boxes while the telephone numbers of the recipients were not for the premises, she told reporters here Thursday.

"Drug syndicates have devised many methods to avoid detection including using courier services to smuggle drugs into the country," she said.
