MAHB seeks developers, investors for land around KLIA
By Kang Siew Li Published: 2008/08/25

Malaysia Airports aims to increase its non-aviation revenues and passenger numbers at KLIA by developing its 1,092ha of the total non-aeronautical land

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) will issue a request for proposal (RFP) next month to developers and investors interested in developing land around the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang.

The airport operator has a 30-year lease of 9,690ha at KLIA starting from 1998. Of this total, 6,400ha are for non-aeronautical activities and the rest for aeronautical activities and facilities such as ramp, apron and runway.

MAHB general manager of land development, Muhd Najib Mohd Rawi, said the company is opening 1,092ha of the total non-aeronautical land, currently planted with oil palm, for development over the next 10 to 15 years.

"Our aim is to increase our non-aviation revenues and passenger numbers at KLIA through creation of activities. In the long term, we want to make KLIA an airport city," he told Business Times in an interview.

MAHB last year commissioned a land suitability study, the results of which showed that the area is suitable for high value and time-sensitive manufacturing facilities, logistics centre and facilities, meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE), destination retail or shopping, tourism and recreational activities.


"A master plan has been developed, outlining development options, and submitted to the Sepang Municipal Council. We expect it to be approved in two months," said Muhd Najib.

"In the meantime, we will continue to generate awareness of the project among developers and investors both locally and abroad," he added.

MAHB is looking to form a joint-venture partnership to develop, build and operate the land or lease the land to others rather than developing it alone.

"We will self-develop some of the development components for long-term recurring rental income," said Muhd Najib.

"We won't invite just anybody. The developers and investors must offer premium development properties in order to maintain the KLIA brand of modern and high technology facilities. This must be carried out throughout the whole development," he added.

Under the master plan dubbed "KLIA Aeropolis", the majority 395.37ha or 36.2 per cent of the 1,092ha land are zoned for commercial use, and 230.4ha or 21.1 per cent for parks and green.

The master plan also features a 128ha allocation for two 18-hole golf courses, 121.07ha for agro-tourism development, and 10.06ha for a stadium.

Muhd Najib said because of the vast development, the RFPs will initially cover several components of the commercial zone such as the expo and convention centre, specialised retail outlets and purpose-built offices.

"We will also invite developers and investors to submit a RFP to develop and operate a 40ha theme park, a logistics centre and golf courses at the airport land," he added.

The company is planning to have a theme park that will rival those in Genting Highlands and Singapore's Sentosa Island.

"The advantages our location has are its proximity to the airport, the abundance of land and the presence of a low-cost terminal," said Muhd Najib.

To attract developers and investors, MAHB is in the midst of drawing up plans to develop a transport centre similar to the KL Sentral station, to connect people from the commercial zone to the airport terminal.

"For this area to be successful, it must be well connected. As such, we are proposing a tram or train line to connect the commercial centre to the airport.

"We are studying what is best. We have allocated some parcels of land for this transport centre," said Muhd Najib.

On the cost of development, Muhd Najib said it will mainly be on infrastructure.

"We will develop the land in phases. For instance, to get the ball rolling, we have allocated a budget in the coming year to commence initial infrastructure development in the commercial zone, covering 20ha," he said, but declined to reveal any figures.

Eraman sees revenue boost from KLIA lifestyle mall
By Hamisah Hamid Published: 2008/08/25 BusinessTimes



MALAYSIA Airports (Niaga) Sdn Bhd (Eraman), the retail arm of Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), expects its soon-to-be launched lifestyle shopping mall at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to contribute 20 per cent to its business next year.

Eraman head of merchandising division (core products) Elina Jamaluddin said the company's revenue from core products such as duty-free items, perfumes, cosmetics and convenience shops, have been growing double-digit over the years.

"The opening of the mall at the KLIA contact pier is expected to boost the revenue further. For this year we can't really gauge, but we anticipate it to contribute at least 20 per cent to Eraman's business next year," she told Business Times in an interview in Kuala Lumpur recently.


Eraman, with retail outlets spread over the KLIA, Kuching International Airport, Kota Kinabalu International Airport, Labuan Airport and Low Cost Carrier Terminal, registered RM289 million revenue last year. This represents 20 per cent of the MAHB group revenue of RM1.38 billion.

Elina said the Contact Pier International - a walkthrough mall that stretches along the 30,000 sq ft contact pier area of the KLIA - is expected to be operational in later part of October this year.

The open concept shopping mall, which is located near the aerotrain station and the area where the regional and international travellers converge, blends contemporary design and fixtures with the batik colours, hues and motifs as the main decorative element.

Besides food and beverages, fashion apparels, accessories, timepieces and complementary services, other highlights at the lifestyle mall include "Kidz Smart Tunnel", that would offer duty-free items targeted at junior travellers.

"We are bringing retail to the next level. No airport in the world has a lifestyle approach," she said, adding that airports in general do not have the liberty of space for such retail concept.

According to Elina, for certain international brands that will be featured at the mall, the lifestyle concept is the first for them, either in Asia Pacific or globally.

For instance, the World of Cadbury, for the first time, will showcase the Cadbury brand stories and timeline that traces the brand since the early 1900s. Hershey's concept shop, meanwhile, will be the first one outside the US that will feature Hershey's history wall showing actual scenes of Hershey Town in Pennsylvania, the home of the Hershey Company.

On the recent escalating oil prices, Elina said it has not significantly impacted Eraman's sales growth so far. As at June this year, the company was still on track to meet its forecast.

"To mitigate any downside, we will continue to improve our offerings. Airport retailing is unique and a niche market as travellers generally buy on impulse and for Asians, the general purchasing trend is mainly for giftings," she said.

Eraman always ensures that its product offerings meet customers' preference and comprise value packs and special travel retail exclusives which are only available at its airport outlets, she added.

MAHB Expects RM800 Mil Sales Revenue From Commercial Activities At KLIA, LCCT
August 26, 2008 21:20 PM

SEPANG, Aug 26 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (Malaysia Airports) expects to earn about RM800 million from commercial activities at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT).

Malaysia Airports senior general manager (Operation Services) Datuk Azmi Murad is confident of achieving the target after Malaysia Airports earned about RM70 million from the sale of shopping retails between January and June.

To increase passenger spending, Malaysia Airports was expanding the retail space at KLIA to transform it into a bigger, colourful, vibrant and interesting shopping destination.

The transformation project called "Satellite Retail Optimisation Project (SROP) is the first of Malaysia Airports long-term efforts to make KLIA a fully-contained Airport City, he told reporters after the launching of KLIA Shopping Campaign 2008 and 2009 by Malaysia Airports chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman.

The first phase of SROP, due for completion in October, is expected to be fully completed by June next year, he said.

He said SROP would provide more avenues for local entrepreneurs to have a headstart in penetrating the international market via the additional space available.

"Once fully completed, the commercial area will have 26 outlets comprising 9 retail, 9 dining and 8 service outlets," he said.

Azmi said the new commercial area would contribute and increase sales by 30 percent after it was fully operational in June next year.

Malaysia Airports General Manager (Commercial Services) Umar Bustamam said the KLIA Shopping Campaign, hosted in conjunction with KLIA's 10th anniversary, would start today and end in June 2009.

"This campaign features three shopping contests instead of the usual one. Prizes worth RM2.7 million await shoppers at KLIA and LCCT," he said.

A shopping contest will be held every 12 weeks during the campaign and any shopper who spends a minimum of RM250 will be rewarded with an instant gift.

A higher spending of RM500 will qualify them for the Grand Prize of each contest. Weekly prizes also await shoppers with each of the three shopping contests offering different prizes, he added.

“This year the shopping campaign features three contests instead of the usual one.

Shoppers could also take part in another weekly contest that offers RM5,000 cash each week for the next 36 weeks.

Umar said the airport would also host several shows and activities.

“We aim to provide passengers and visitors the best of KLIA and Malaysia through this campaign,’’ added Umar.

Meanwhile, Aris added that to further enrich the shopping experience in KLIA, there would be a 14-month Satellite Retail Optimisation Project (SROP) at the airport.

“The first phase of the SROP is due for completion in October. This will significantly change the look and feel of the shopping outlets at the Satellite building,’’ said Aris.

He said the SROP covered four phases and once completed next year, there would be an additional 26 outlets.[
