I dont really feel like KLIA will be a busy airport like Jakarta and Singapore.

According to KLIA masterplan, currently the airport can handle 35 million annually.

Phase 1A - 1998 - Terminal 1 (Main Building and Satellite Building A) being built to handle 25 million ppa
Phase 1B - 2006 - Low Cost Carrier Terminal built to handle lcc for 35 million ppa
Phase 2 - 2009 - Extended Low Cost Carrier Terminal to add 5 million ppa (40 million ppa)
Phase 3A - 2012 - New LCCT built and old LCCT convert to cargo to handle (55 million ppa
Phase 3B - Not fixed - Satellite Building B of T1 built to handle 75 million ppa
Phase 4 - Not fixed - Terminal 2 (Main Building and Satellite Building C) built to fully handle 120 million ppa

*PPA stands : Passengers per annum

MAHB Signs RM209 Million Pact With Bombardier To Expand KLIA System
November 26, 2008 20:03 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 26 (Bernama) -- Bombardier Transportation and local partner Hartasuma Sdn Bhd have signed a contract with Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd (MAHB) to expand the existing Bombardier-supplied automated people mover system at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

The contract, which includes a spur line extension to the new operations, maintenance and storage facility and three Bombardier CX-100 vehicles, is valued at about 45 million euros or RM209 million.

"We are proud to be part of the KLIAs present and future standing as a regional hub," said Bombardier Transportation's systems division director Eran Gartner in a statement released here Wednesday.

"Since the opening of the airport in 1998, the CX-100 automated people mover system has provided exceptional service for riders and we remain committed to helping MAHB achieve its goals," he said.

Bombardier Transportation will be responsible for the design and supply of the three driverless vehicles and modifications to the existing six-vehicle fleet as well as the automatic train control and power distribution and communications systems.

It will also supply and integrate a central control centre in the new operations and maintenance storage facility as well as providing project management, systems engineering and integration, and test and commissioning.

Hartasuma meanwhile will be responsible for the civil works.

The new spur line to the OMSF is scheduled for completion in 2011.

"We are extremely pleased that our strategic alliance has been contributing positively, and we hope to continue playing a meaningful role in the governments drive in further enhancing and transforming the transportation infrastructure landscape," said Hartasuma's managing director Dr Abdul Rahman Abdul Halim.

Cost savings to give MAHB extra RM70mil profit
6 Dec 2008 By TEE LIN SAY

THANKS to the cost-saving initiative and revenue-enhancing strategies undertaken by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), it can expect at least RM70mil in additional pre-tax profit for the financial year ending Dec 31 (FY08).

This would imply that MAHB ought to be making at least RM473.64mil in pre-tax profit for FY08.

For the nine months to Sept 30, MAHB recorded a 12.34% increase in revenue to RM1.15bil while net profit jumped 35.59% to RM247.97mil. Pre-tax profit increased 35.67% to RM248.22mil.


“It is impressive what MAHB has achieved for the nine-month period, especially in boosting its non-aeronautical segment.

“The fourth quarter is normally weaker as MAHB generally reports higher taxes during that period, and revenue from plantations will not be significant, given the lower crude palm oil prices,” said an analyst with a local research house. “Let us see whether they will achieve their target.”

Meanwhile, MAHB managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said the company had done well despite its airport charges being one of the lowest in the world (about 2%), and with its services not being compromised.

Up to Nov 30, passenger arrivals for all airports handled by MAHB increased 5.4% to 42.8 million. Of this, KL International Airport (KLIA) received 15.8 million while the low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) received nine million. The LCCT is expected to hit the 10 million mark by year-end.

Bashir is expecting a 1% to 2% passenger growth for 2009. While revenue may decrease, MAHB would remain profitable, driven by its non-aeronautical division (retailing, food and beverage as well as advertising), he said.

“Some people say KLIA looks very empty. That is because KLIA was built to be spacious. It has an average space of 55 sq m per passenger compared with an average space of 25 sq m (per passenger) for most airports,” Bashir said.

In the last five years, MAHB has reduced cost, increased efficiencies and boosted its non-aeronautical division.

Presently, revenue contribution from the non-aeronautical segment is almost equal to the aeronautical segment compared with a 55:45 ratio five years ago.

On a year-on-year basis, the operating profits from the retail division improved by 190.2% to RM14.1mil in the third quarter.

MAHB is now expanding its retail space in KLIA by 930 sq m. The retail space in LCCT will be increased to 30% from 10% presently. The expansion will be completed by the end of next year.

MAHB has also received proposals for its commercial development plan in the KLIA vicinity.

Having earmarked 931ha, MAHB plans to build hotels, shopping malls and office lots in its bid to further diversify its earnings base.

Bashir said development works would begin in the next one to two years.

Refurbished KLIA satellite building to boost retail business
Wednesday December 10, 2008
By SHARIDAN M. ALI

SEPANG: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) expects the refurbishment of its KL International Airport (KLIA) satellite building to generate more retail business to help offset slower growth in passenger traffic volume next year.

The refurbishment of the satellite building would create a more contemporary shopping experience with the addition of new outlets.

The 14-month project, which started in May, is divided into four phases.

Phase one, or the east zone area, was completed in October and opened in conjunction with ongoing KLIA shopping campaign that offered RM2.7mil worth of prizes to shoppers at KLIA and its low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT). The prizes include travel packages and a brand new luxury car.

“I believe travellers will still buy (amid the global economic downturn) if we provide the right products at appropriate prices and suitable locations,” managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad told reporters at the opening ceremony of the east zone yesterday.

The new KLIA east zone outlets include Choc Stop International, Dome, Harrods and Pusrawi Medicare.

The company forecasts passenger traffic to grow by 1% to 2% next year based on notifications of several airlines that wanted to increase their flight frequency next year.

MAHB, which operates 39 airports, had forecast a 5% increase in passenger volume this year.

Bashir said travellers who spent RM150 and above at the east zone would be eligible to enter the “Guess the Price” game that would see every winner walk away with a RM500 shopping voucher.

“Our shopping campaign and satellite retail optimisation project are aimed at rewarding shoppers while providing them with competitive retail experience that surpasses other airports in terms of variety and price,” said Bashir.

On other developments of MAHB, its senior general manager (operations) Datuk Azmi Murad said the Batu Berendam Airport upgrading was expected to be completed by the end of this month and be operational in the first quarter of next year.

“We expect to partially open the new LCCT international arrival hall on Dec 15 and the wing is expected to be fully operational by March.

“LCCT’s annual passenger capacity will be boosted to 15 million passengers by then from the current 10 million,” he said, adding that the upgrading project cost about RM130mil.

Greater flying comfort since Monday
2008/12/20

SEPANG: International passengers arriving at the low-cost carrier terminal at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport will experience a better and more spacious area as the new international arrival hall opened for operation on Dec 15.
The extension has added 32,000sq metre of floor space to the existing 28,000sq metre. The international arrival hall is part of the RM160 million new wing constructed under the LCCT-KLIA expansion plan.

The new wing is expected to be ready in March.

At this hall, six baggage carousels have been configured to further expedite baggage handling. Customs counters have been doubled from six to 12 and 34 Immigration counters are available compared with the previous 12.

The additional floor space will also be utilised to accommodate more retail and F&B outlets, and shower and surau facilities.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd senior general manager (operations) Datuk Azmi Murad said: "This expansion is to cater to the growing numbers of low cost travellers, which has seen tremendous increase.

It is also to enhance passenger comfort level and experience when using this hall." -- Bernama

Proposed LCCT to be privately funded
Saturday December 20, 2008 By SARBAN SINGH

SEREMBAN: Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan has told critics to stop making claims that the proposed construction of a new low-cost carrier terminal near Nilai was a waste of government funds.

Mohamad said they should get their information right before making unfounded claims as the proposed project was a privately-financed initiative and the Government did not need to spend a single sen for its construction.

“Some people are saying that this is my project and I intend to give it to my cronies. This is so pathetic,” he told reporters at his office yesterday.

He said even if the state government planned to carry out a project, it would go through the normal tender process.

Mohamad was commenting on claims that the proposed construction of the project was a “brazen” waste of public funds particularly when the economic scenario in the coming months was not expected to be good.

Mohamad had last month said the new airport, to be located between Nilai and Bandar Enstek, would be built to replace the present LCCT in Sepang.

He said the proposed airport, to be build on a 2,800ha area, would be bigger than the present LCCT which could no longer accommodate the increasing passenger volume.

The proposed project would be developed by Sime Darby, which owns the land, and AirAsia.

“We need a new airport as AirAsia now has bigger wide-bodied planes. Its aircraft fleet has also expanded tremendously,” he said yesterday.

He said the proposed airport would also be equipped with aero-bridges and state-of-the-art facilities for passenger comfort.

Mohamad said although Sime Darby, AirAsia and the state government had agreed to the project, the Cabinet would have the final say on the matter.

He expressed hope that the Transport Ministry, Malaysia Airports and the Department of Civil Aviation would support the proposed project.

Two universities and several private institutions of higher learning would also be built in the vicinity of the proposed project, which is located in the state’s central corridor.

'KLIA East @ Labu’ gets government go-ahead: Airport part of 'massive city'
NST Online » Frontpage By : V. Vasudevan 2008/12/20



KUALA LUMPUR: The cabinet has given the green light for a new low-cost carrier terminal on a 2,800-hectare site in Labu, Negri Sembilan, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said.

Ong said the new LCCT would be built under a private finance initiative by conglomerate Sime Darby Bhd and budget airline AirAsia.

The airport will anchor Sime Darby's "massive integrated city" development in Labu, which includes five townships with services in education, health, sports, high technology, recreation and entertainment.

The RM1.6 billion terminal will be funded by Sime Darby and joint-venture partners which could include AirAsia and Malaysia Airports Bhd.

Ong said the new terminal was needed as the current facility in Sepang would not be able to cope with the increased passenger volume.
Under its final expansion phase, after which there will be no more room for growth, the Sepang LCCT will have its capacity increased to 15 million passengers a year, a figure industry sources say is likely to be exceeded by 2011.

Including its Thai and Indonesian affiliates, AirAsia flew some 18 million people this year. The new terminal will be built to accommodate 25 million passengers a year, and last on present forecasts until 2030.

Ong said he could not give a timeline on when work would start on the new LCCT.

"It is up to them as to when they want to start work. For our part we will make sure there is connectivity between the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the new LCCT.

"We want to ensure passengers will be able to move from both places speedily, smoothly and efficiently."

To be called "KLIA [email protected] Labu", the new terminal is slightly closer to central Kuala Lumpur than the present LCCT and will boast connectivity by both road and rail.

A 7km branch road will link it with the North-South Expressway and a 3km spur line will be built from the railway station in Labu -- a stop on the KL-Seremban KTM Komuter route.

Welcoming the project's approval, Negri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hassan said the KLIA would be connected to the new terminal by a 7km Express Rail Link (ERL).

Industry sources said a ground-breaking ceremony was being slated for late next month with construction planned for completion in two years.

When the new facility is commissioned, the Sepang LCCT, which has more than recovered its cost from the explosive increase in passenger numbers over the last two years, will serve other budget carriers, such as Singapore's Tiger Airways.

Mohamad said the siting of the new terminal near Kampung Gadong Jaya in Labu would boost economic growth in the state.

"The location is not far from the existing terminal. It will be an extension of the KLIA.

"When the airport is built, the state can expect economic development, such as housing estates and business centres, in the surrounding areas," he said.
