3 new carriers to start flights to KL by April
By Hamisah Hamid Published: 2008/10/15



AIRPORT operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) said it has managed to convince three new regional carriers to start operating flights to Kuala Lumpur by April next year.

Managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad declined to disclose their names, but said it could include a budget carrier.

MAHB general manager of marketing Mohamed Sallauddin Mat Sah was quoted last month by Business Times as saying that it was wooing Pakistan's budget airline Air Blue and private airline Shaheen Air, and India's Kingfisher Airlines to initiate services to Kuala Lumpur.

Bashir also said MAHB will announce an "enhanced incentive package" for airlines at the end of this year.

The new incentive package is expected to replace the current scheme, which had expired on May 3 2007, but has since been extended pending the announcement of the group's long-awaited corporate restructuring plan.

"We need to review (these incentives) from time to time as the market progresses. We will announce it by year-end," Bashir told reporters at the 14th World Route Development Forum (Routes KL), which ended yesterday.

He did not elaborate, but it is understood that the new incentives will include rebates on airport tax or passenger service charge for airlines that will bring growth in passenger numbers to the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang and other airports in the country.

Meanwhile, Bashir said overall passenger traffic growth is expected to slow to five per cent for full year 2008, after growing nine per cent in the first seven months of this year.

It handled 45 million passengers at its 39 airports in the country last year.

"The growth mainly came from international traffic," he said, adding that India, China and the Middle East were the biggest markets.

On Routes KL, of which MAHB was this year's host, Bashir said feedbacks from the 2,000-odd foreign delegates have been positive.

"All delegates are happy with the location. Many people I met are here for the first time and were impressed with Kuala Lumpur," he said.

The three-day forum has generated spin-off economic benefits for the country, particularly the hotel and retail industries, he added.

Routes is the largest annual airport and airline formal and informal networking event. Held for the first time in Asia, Routes KL brought together 350 airlines and 650 airports representatives and decision-makers.

Forum helps MAHB draw airlines


KUALA LUMPUR: Despite the weak financial markets and the collapse of several airlines in the US and Europe, almost all the world’s carriers and airport managers came to Malaysia last week with serious plans to negotiate landing rights and use of airport facilities.

More than 2,500 delegates, representing 500 airlines and 1,000 airports, attended the 14th World Route Development Forum from Oct 11 to 15.

KL International Airport (KLIA), managed by Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd (MAHB), successfully attracted “two or three” airlines to give their commitment to begin routes into KL next year.

MAHB managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad told StarBiz these were regional airlines rather than long-haul carriers, but he could not name them as “they are not ready yet to announce their new routes”.

That aside, Bashir said the main reason MAHB hosted the forum was to attract flight planners to the country and to drum up business for KLIA and the other major airports in Penang, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching and Langkawi.

At present, with the rise in tourism travel into the country, the utilisation rate of the KLIA was quite strong at 80% of capacity, with the conventional terminal handling about 20 million out of 25 million annual capacity and the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) taking about 8 million passengers out of 10 million annual capacity.

The capacity at the LCCT will increase to 15 million when the expansion of the airport is fully completed next year.

In the long term, however, MAHB aims to attract more long-haul carriers to KLIA.

Bashir said the forum would help the entire airline industry to realise “the tourism potential” of the route to KLIA.

This, he said, would help KLIA regain its past glory by wooing back the troubled airlines that had shunned KL during the various regional crises in the past decade.

In 2001, British Airways (BA), Lufthansa and Qantas cancelled their KLIA route, although Lufthansa returned in March 2004.

Bashir said BA, as well as other long-haul carriers, were in constant contacts with MAHB but still needed to assess the viability of their routes.

“The airlines need their routes to be viable, that is the main factor,” he said.

Contrary to popular belief, the load factor for the KL-London route was never a problem.

“The flights to London were always at least 75% full but the margin on long-haul flights, due to rising fuel and other costs, was the main concern,” he added.

Studies have shown that passengers are not willing to pay a certain threshold fare for a return ticket. So if costs are more than RM6,000 for a long-haul flight, it may not be viable.

Nonetheless, MAHB is bent on attracting the long-haul flights, considering the tourism potential of KLIA as a destination.

MAHB earnings had grown in the first two quarters, with net profit up 28.5% year-on-year to RM91.6mil in the first quarter ended March 31, and an 18.8% increase to RM66.38mil in the second quarter.

“Passenger numbers were up 9% for the first seven months of the year but we reckon that the numbers will come down for the rest of the year, so we would still get 5% (passenger growth) for the full year,” Bashir said.

As a result, earnings should also be moderated for the second-half year.

KLIA Now Offers Flights To Papua New Guinea
October 29, 2008 23:48 PM

SEPANG, Oct 29 (Bernama) -- The Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is offering connections to Papua New Guinea from today as Air Niugini, the national carrier of Papua New Guinea, made its first landing at KLIA tonight.

The carrier operates one flight weekly, flying from its hub Port Moresby to KLIA every Wednesday, using the Boeing 757 aircraft with 189 seats.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd's managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said Air Niugini's presence marked a new market for KLIA as it was the first airline to offer flights to the Pacific Islands in the Oceania region.

"Malaysia Airports hope to attract more airlines from the region in future to fly to Malaysia," he said in his speech at the welcoming ceremony of the arrival of the first Air Niugini here, Wednesday night.

His speech was read by the Malaysia Airports' senior general manager (operation services) Datuk Azmi Murad.

Also present was Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Lajim Ukim who said the direct connectivity to Port Moresby through Air Nuigini will further grow relations between Malaysia and Papua New Guinea.

Malaysia is the fourth largest investor in Papua New Guinea and the new flights available between the two countries will create new collaborations in the near future, he said.

MAHB Plan To Develop Land Around KLIA Attracts Local, Foreign Interests
October 31, 2008 17:28 PM

SEPANG, Oct 31 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd's (MAHB) plan to develop 1,092ha around the KL International Airport (KLIA) has attracted interests from local and international investors from India and the Middle East.

"The company is expected to inform successful bidders within two months of the closing date for its requests for proposal on Nov 21," MAHB chairman, Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman, said after presenting a RM30,000 contribution to the National Heart Institute here today.

Aris said this when asked on the progress of its plan to develop the company's land for non-aeronautical activities.

Maiden flight from Papua New Guinea lands at KLIA
Wednesday November 5, 2008
By CHARLES FERNANDEZ

KL International Airport (KLIA) now offers connections to Papua New Guinea.

Papua New Guinea national carrier Air Niugini’s inaugural flight from Port Moresby landed at KLIA on Oct 29.

October was an eventful month for Malaysia Airports, as KLIA also welcomed the arrival of SilkAir from Singapore.

Earlier this year, KLIA had welcomed two airlines, Tiger Airways and Jetstar Asia, and tomorrow, it will welcome the maiden flight from Dacca of BestAir from Bangladesh.

Air Niugini currently operates a flight weekly from Port Moresby to KLIA every Wednesday, utilising a 189-seater Boeing 757.

Among the passengers on the inaugural flight were Air Niugini chief executive officer Wasantha Kumarasiri, Treasury Minister Patrick Prualtch, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Philemon Endel and heads of various corporate organisations.

The flight landed at 7.10pm and departed at KLIA at 8.10pm for the return to Port Moresby.

“We are hopeful that with five airlines now making KLIA their preferred destination, more will follow soon,” Malaysia Airports senior general manager (operations) Datuk Azmi Murad said.

He said Air Niugini’s presence would enhance connectivity at KLIA as the airline was the first offering connections from the Pacific island in the Oceania region to Malaysia.

“This is a new market for us and we hope to attract more airlines from the region to fly to Malaysia,” he added.

He said the recently concluded 14th World Route Development Forum that was hosted by Malaysia Airports in Kuala Lumpur – the first time it was held in Asia – would further pave the way for Malaysia Airports to convince new airlines to start flying to Malaysia.

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Seri Lajim Ukin, in his welcome speech, noted that the air transport relationship between the two countries had started way back in 1973 and expressed the hope that the relationship would grow with this inaugural flight.

“With the liberalisation of Malaysia’s air transport policy, more Malaysian cities will open their skies, especially to airlines from Asean member countries,” he said.

He added that this year, passenger arrivals were expected to increase by 5% over last year’s figure.

Air Niugini CEO Wasantha Kumarasiri said the non-stop Kuala Lumpur service would provide an excellent opportunity to connect passengers from Port Moresby to other Asian destinations and Europe.

KLIA's annual RM1b allocation hits turbulence


THE Kuala Lumpur International Airport continues to receive RM1 billion a year in allocations 10 years after it was opened.

This has not gone down well with two members.

Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibra-him (PKR-Bandar Tun Razak) said the initial outlay to build the airport might have been justified as it was to put a new infrastructure in place.

"However, what happened after that comes down to management of the facility. The public should be paying for what they are using.

"The government should explain why the airport is costing the taxpayers so much," he said while debating Budget 2009 at the committee stage.

Khalid said KLIA should be self sustaining and meet all its operational costs. He said he hoped the Finance Ministry would provide an explanation as to how this could have happened.

N. Gobalakrishnan (PKR-Padang Serai) also spoke against the RM1.06 billion allocated for the KLIA in Budget 2009.

"In my opinion, this is too much. This appears to be the amount disbursed to KLIA by the Finance Ministry in every budget since the airport was built.

"Something must be wrong with the way they are managing the facility."

He said KLIA should not need RM1 billion to maintain itself. "Surely there must be more innovative ways to raise funds to manage and maintain KLIA."

Wastage was also on the mind of Khairy Jamaluddin (BN-Rembau), who complain-ed about failed privatised projects.

He singled out Indah Water Konsortium (IWK), which was privatised in 1994. Six years later, the government had to buy back the equity and has since been pumping money into the company.

"It is unlikely that it will be showing a profit soon," he said, while noting that the Finance Ministry had allocated RM250 million for IWK for next year.

Khairy also wanted to know how effective Cyberview Sdn Bhd had been in attracting investors to Cyberjaya.

He said there were many businesses using Cyberjaya for their outsourcing activities, which he felt was all right but did not meet its original goal.

He said the original goal was for companies there to carry out research and development.

Datuk Ahmad Hamzah (BN-Jasin) said failed projects only provided fodder for the opposition to use against the government.

"It is better for the public to get the information from BN because there are other sour-ces of information that are not reliable. The opposition can manipulate them for its benefit."
