KLIA is MUCH more better than T3 of BCIA. Used BCIA numerous times and i find it is hard to navigate around. Not to forget the unwelcoming look of the immigration staffs

KLIA Will Gain From One-stop Security Centre, Says IATA
January 04, 2009 23:30 PM

GENEVA, Jan 4 (Bernama) -- The KL International Airport (KLIA), which already has several titles to its belt, could further improve its standing by having a one-stop security centre at its terminal, says an airport security and facilitation expert.

Such a system would reduce the time spent for security checks, and while passengers would have more time for leisure, aircrafts would not have to wait for a longer period and the airlines would not have to pay more for additional checks at the gates, says International Air Transport Association (IATA) director for security and facilitation, Georgina Graham.

Transit passengers are also more likely, as the system, being proposed by IATA, does away with repetitive process due to adequate screening from the country of origin, she said.

"With the connecting time reduced, it can make you stronger as a hub, as an aircraft on the ground will cost money. That's how an airport becomes stronger," she told Malaysian journalists here on the sideline of IATA's Global Media Day here recently.

According to Graham, Malaysia and Singapore could be among those adopting its one-stop security proposal in the region.

"KLIA and Changi can be the beacon on adopting security measures that make transit passengers feel more at ease, as they would not have to be re-screened as they have not left the sterile area (an area that is not open to other passengers," she said.

She added that last November, Malaysia also said it would be working closely with IATA to be the pioneer state for the Secure Freight programme for air cargo security.

"It (the proposed security system)will not necessarily be an expansion of the airport's space to hold up the transit passnegers in a sterile area, but more of a change in the set-up of the airport," she said.

This would also mean that security queues would be shorter, and a pick-up in duty free sales with less stressed passengers having more time in their hand.

Graham also noted that the reduced security checks could also encourage an airport to redeploy its resources in maximising security.

"There could be three security personnel rotating every twenty minutes to ensure that security is not compromised. It does not require extra human capital but just a redeployment of resources as there would not be a need (for personnel) at both the gates and the central area," she said.

Nevertheless, Graham added that any precautionary routine at airports should encompass a more holistic approach rather than just depending on physical checks.

"Screening is only really one part of how we detect and deter terrorism. There are many layers of screening that should be implemented, but is invisible to the passengers," she said.

She said having knowledge of passenger information such as affiliations and associations, added to the physical screening, would help authorities to have a bigger picture of a passenger.

For some, it is about detection, for others, it is about deterrence and therefore no one type of system will fit all.

But as any other business goes, airports too would want to know the financial gain of trying out a new system, she added.

Based on IATA's data, about 28 percent of passengers are on connecting flights, representing about 62.5 million people yearly.

Asia Pacific alone sees around 15 percent of passengers getting on connecting flights, representing about 31 million people yearly.

"If enough passengers are transitting through that airport (due to reduced transit time), it would give enough critical mass to justify the investment for the one-stop security proposal," she said, adding that cost would vary depending on an airport's layout.

Graham also suggested that the best way to ensure that airports and their relevant authorities warm up to the one-stop security proposal will be to have a group of like-minded governments agree to it, instead of targeting individual countries.

I use this airport a lot, it's not the biggest but definitely one of the most convenient and efficient airport in the world. The only cons is the book price in the book store is a little too high.

IATA: Focus on maximising KLIA's potential
Published: 2009/01/16

THE International Air Transport Association (IATA) yesterday entered the debate on a proposed new low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) south of Kuala Lumpur, saying Malaysia should focus on maximising the existing KL International Airport's (KLIA) potential as a hub instead.

In a statement issued in Kuala Lumpur yesterday, the Geneva-based airline group indirectly referred to the plan by Sime Darby Bhd and AirAsia Bhd to build a new low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Labu, Negri Sembilan dubbed "KLIA [email protected]".

AirAsia has been promoting the need for the new airport, saying, among others, that the airline's expansion plans require a dedicated airport instead of the current LCCT at the KLIA.

"A single airport operation is the preferred solution if Kuala Lumpur is to be a strong aviation hub in the region. Having two airports could translate into inconvenience and confusion for passengers," IATA said.

"It could also result in duplication in services, such as fire and rescue, air traffic control, immigration and customs. This will lead to lower cost-efficiency and ultimately a higher cost of travel."

IATA also raised possible negative implications in managing the air traffic at the two airports.

"KLIA currently has aircraft arriving and departing to all directions. Having another airport nearby could impact the efficiency of air traffic management.

"There could potentially be air traffic delays. Aircraft may have to fly a longer distance before landing at KLIA, or after taking off."

Meanwhile, AirAsia revealed at an analyst briefing on Wednesday that the land cost for the new LCCT would be some RM200 million, bringing the total project cost to RM1.8 billion.

HwangDBS Vickers Research Sdn Bhd said its main concern is whether AirAsia will be able to raise funding for the KLIA [email protected] project, given the current tight credit environment.

"In our opinion, it makes more economical sense for a new LCCT to be located next to the (existing) KLIA (in Sepang) to ride on existing infrastructure such as the runways and oil tank farm," it said in a note to clients yesterday.

The foreign research firm also said the completion of the new LCCT could be delayed because it would need 29 months to develop from January 1 2009.

"Meanwhile, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) already has plans to build a new LCCT by end-2011 that will share the existing runway and other facilities in KLIA, and likely to be funded by MAHB or the government or both," said HwangDBS Vickers Research.

India's Kingfisher Airlines To Fly To KL
January 16, 2009 16:26 PM

NEW DELHI, Jan 16 (Bernama) -- Kingfisher Airlines, India's second largest private airlines, will soon start daily flights from Chennai to Kuala Lumpur.

India's Civil Aviation Ministry is said to have granted permission for the airline to fly the Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Singapore sector.

The Economic Times reported today that the Kingfisher, owned by the United Breweries Group, controlled by Indian industrialist, Vijay Mallya, would fly the new routes.

"We have granted permission to Kingfisher to operate daily services on three more international sectors, including Chennai-Kuala Lumpur, with immediate effect," a ministry official was quoted as saying.

The paper however did not name the official.

"The Aviation Ministry has asked the airlines to conduct proper study of air tr+affic on new routes before announcing the launch.

"In case the airline launches its services on new routes without a market survey, it may be forced to withdraw flights later. This must be avoided," said the official.

After Jet Airways, Kingfisher is one of the most preferred airlines in the domestic circuit. As of last year its share of Indian aviation market stood at 27 percent.

According to recent ministry data, the Bangalore-based airline, along with its budget carrier, Kingfisher Red, flew 11.26 million passengers last year, only next to Jet Airways that carried 12.01 million passengers.

KL International Airport

Kuala Lumpur International Airport (IATA: KUL) commonly known as KLIA is one of Asia's major aviation hubs, along with Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Bangkok and Incheon.

It is situated in Sepang district, in the south of the state of Selangor, about 50 kilometres (31 mi) from the capital city, Kuala Lumpur. The airport was built in 1998 at a cost of some US$3.5 billion. Adjacent to the airport is the Sepang F1 Circuit.

With the airport site spanning 100 km2, it is one of the largest airport sites in the world. It is built on a piece of agricultural land and required no demolition of private property.
The initial master plan of KLIA involves constructing 5 runways, and 2 terminals accompanied by 2 satellite terminals for each terminal over three phases. Only one main terminal and one satellite terminal (linked with Aerotrain) with a combined 60 contact piers are completed today to accommodate 35 million passengers.

Ultimately, the airport will be able to handle 100 million passengers per annum when all 3 phases are implemented.

KLIA also hosts one of Asia's first low-cost carrier terminal, and is now the busiest single terminal at KLIA. The low-cost carrier terminal is home to Asia's largest budget carrier - AirAsia.

Plans are underway to build a new permanent terminal for the carrier to accommodate up to 40 million passengers by 2013.
