MAHB to announce restructuring plan
12-02-2009: THEEDGEDAILY

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) will be suspended today at the company’s request, pending an announcement on its corporate and financial restructuring plan.

MAHB said yesterday it had scheduled a press conference today to talk about the restructuring plan.

It said the restructuring would involve the restatement of the respective rights and commitments of the government, MAHB and wholly owned subsidiary Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd, in relation to the operation, management, maintenance and development of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

It also pertains to the restatement of the respective rights and commitments of the government, MAHB and another wholly owned subsidiary Malaysia Airports Sdn Bhd (MASB), in relation to the operation, management, maintenance and development of airports other than KLIA and Senai Airport.

MAHB said the restructuring would also involve the proposed disposal of its 100% equity interest in NECC Sdn Bhd to the Minister of Finance for RM159.63 million cash and its 100% equity interest in Sepang International Circuit Sdn Bhd (SIC) to the Minister of Finance for RM1 cash.

MASB also proposes to grant an option to the Minister of Finance to require MASB to sell the Sepang International Formula One Circuit to the Minister of Finance, exercisable within 10 years from the date the agreement is executed.

MAHB closed one sen higher at RM2.08 yesterday, with 103,500 shares traded.

Baggage out in 15 minutes at KLIA
Thursday March 5, 2009
By NG CHENG YEE

SEPANG: Passengers arriving at KL Inter*national Airport can look forward to picking up their baggage 15 minutes after landing.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) was looking at reducing delivery time – now between 25 and 40 minutes – to between 15 and 30 minutes.

“This is indeed a challenge for MAHB and others concerned but we need to improve in this aspect to remain competitive,” he told a press conference after inspecting the baggage handling system at KLIA here yesterday.

He said the delivery time mainly referred to baggage transported from the satellite building to the main terminal at the airport via a 1.5km-long conveyor.

MAHB managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad Abdul Majid said the company was looking at improving the baggage system to be able to deliver the first bag in 15 minutes and the last in 30 minutes.

“Baggage from aircraft parked at the main contact pier has already met the 15-30 minutes delivery time standard,” he said, adding that the company was also working towards eliminating baggage pilferage at the airport by stepping up security.

On another matter, Ong said MAHB and the Road Transport Department would work together to curb touting activities at the airport.

“The anti-touting proposal by the department is primarily focused on the relocation of public transport service counters to the (restricted area at the) arrival hall to prevent touts from approaching passengers,” he said.

“MAHB is also in discussions with hoteliers, travel agents and transport providers to move their service counters to the arrival hall.”

Scan at KLIA to detect drug mules
Published: Monday March 16, 2009 MYT 5:03:00 PM
By DHARMENDER SINGH

SEPANG: The Customs Department will soon test a new body scanning machine at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) that will among other things allow it to even identify drug-filled packets that have been swallowed by “mules”.

Its director-general Datuk Ibrahim Jaapar said the RM1mil imported machine was now being installed at the Customs checkpoint at the KLIA and was expected to be operational soon.

“If we are satisfied with its efficiency and the public response is good, we will propose its use at all our airports and even land entry points like Bukit Kayu Hitam and Padang Besar,” he said, adding that a similar scanning device was already in use by Customs in Indonesia.

He said the department decided to try out the machine after making several major drug busts at KLIA and other international airports in the country.

At the KLIA alone, he said, there were eight cases last year of attempts to smuggle in Ketamin and Syabu with a street value of about RM5.8mil while in the first 10 weeks of this year Customs officials had seized Ketamin worth RM1.9mil in five separate cases.

Customs officers also arrested six suspects in connection with the cases last year and another five over the cases this year, he said.

He was speaking to reporters after launching the upgrading of the KLIA Customs office to that equivalent to a state Customs Department and that will now be headed by its own director.

Ibrahim said the department was now also looking into obtaining drug detecting equipment that would allow its officers to accurately scan and identify drugs hidden in parcels and bags.

New LCCT departure hall opens
Wednesday March 18, 2009

SEPANG: The new international departure hall at the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal opens today with the first flight to Guangzhou, China leaving at 5.50am.

The new hall can accommodate 3,200 passengers compared to 600 at the old one.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad senior general manager (operation services) Datuk Azmi Murad said the number of international travellers was growing rapidly with the introduction of AirAsia’s new long-haul destinations, including to London, Perth, Gold Coast and Melbourne.

“The number of domestic passengers for 2008 were 5,050,693 while international passengers were 5,087,859,” he told reporters when giving a media tour at the hall here yesterday.

However, he said, international passengers were expected to grow and make up 60% of the total in the next two years.

Azmi said the expansion project, which cost about RM124mil, would increase terminal maximum capacity by 50% from the current 10 million passengers per annum (ppa) to 15 million by 2011.

“In order to cope with the growth, immigration counters, including the auto gate lanes, will also be increased to 45 from 18,” he said.

He said there was also an increase of 10 boarding gates for international departure compared to eight.

“Other new facilities include 12 shower rooms, five baby changing rooms, one smoking room and four lifts and escalators,” he said.

He said passengers could also expect faster baggage delivery with the expansion of two carousels to six.

On parking facilities, he said, there was an additional of 1,500 parking bays. “The number of retail outlets has been increased to 28 from the present seven with an additional six food and beverages outlets,” he said.

On the old departure hall, Azmi said it would be closed from today for renovation.

On what would happen to the LCCT when the new LCCT at the KL International Airport is completed in 2011, Azmi said: “It can be converted into a cargo terminal but we will decide later.”

KLIA shuttle and rail link plan for new LCCT
Thursday March 19, 2009

KUALA LUMPUR: The Express Rail Link (ERL) train services are likely to be extended to the new low-cost carrier terminal that will be built by 2011.

Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Dr Aminuddin Adnan said they had been asked to consider extending the current ERL line to the new LCCT to cater for an increase in passenger load.

“If all goes well, we are planning to extend the KLIA Express and KLIA Transit lines right up to the new LCCT.

“We are also thinking of having a shuttle service between LCCT and KLIA that will likely run for 24 hours,” he told The Star.

Finance Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced recently that Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) would build and operate the new RM2bil LCCT near the KL International Airport.

On Wednesday, MAHB managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said the new LCCT should be able to handle 30 million passengers annually, compared with the present 15 million.

He said the new LCCT, which was expected to be completed in the second half of 2011, would be near the main terminal and was at a “very good location.”

It is learnt that the new LCCT would be about 2km from KLIA.

The KLIA Express is a 28-minute direct train ride from KL Sentral to KLIA.

KLIA Transit currently leaves from KL Sentral but makes several stops along the way, including at Bandar Tasek Selatan, Putrajaya and Salak Tinggi before reaching KLIA. Both services end at 1am.

On ERL’s proposed bus shuttle service from Salak Tinggi to the current LCCT, Dr Aminuddin said they had completed their trial run and were now gathering data to determine the demand and feasibility of the service.

The bus shuttle service, he said, would enhance the transport service to LCCT and would cater more to passengers wanting an easy, convenient connection to LCCT via KLIA Transit.

Body scanner installed to cut down smuggling
Thursday March 19, 2009
By CHARLES FERNANDEZ



A RM1mil security bodyscan machine installed in August last year at the customs checkpoint at the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang has yet to be commissioned.

And during this eight-month period, there were eight cases of Ketamin smuggling last year and five cases within the first 10 weeks of this year, involving a total street value of nearly RM8mil.

According to Customs assistant director Zulklifli Abdul Rahman, the RM1mil scanning machine has yet to be commissioned as it is awaiting approval from the Atomic Energy Licensing Board and the Health Ministry because it involved radiation control.

Zulkifli said the department had sent the standard operating procedure (SOP) to the relevant agencies and they had promised to act on the matter as soon as possible.

“If it is approved, the bodyscan machine is likely to be tested on the first passenger by mid-April,’’ he said.

Zulkifli said that due to the high technicality involved in operating the machine and several procedures to follow, it could only be commissioned after getting the necessary approval.

“We want to be careful in meeting the safety standards and be satisfied with the machine’s efficiency before using it,’’ he said.

According to Customs senior deputy superintendent Aidid Tajuddin, who is based at the KLIA Customs unit, the department wants 100% of the operational procedures to be adhered to strictly, including ensuring that the person operating the machine is a trained professional, like an X-Ray machine operator.

On Monday, Customs director-general Datuk Ibrahim Jaapar said if the public response was good, the department would propose to install such machines at all airports and at land entry points like Bukit Kayu Hitam and Padang Besar.

The Soter RS security bodyscan machine has a movable platform and a workstation with a 21” colour monitor connected to an X-ray monoblock with a generator which can acquire images of body parts to detect drug smuggling.

The scanning time is approximately 10 seconds and the machine scans objects at a maximum height of 195cm and maximum width of 90cm.

“All objects and materials are detectable at any place in or on the human body and the images are tranferred to the workstation,’’ Aidid said.

It is learnt that a similar scanning machine device is already being used by the customs in Indonesia while such machines are widely used in other busy airports around the world and in the United States it has been installed in 10 busiest airports in one of the biggest public uses of security devices that reveal intimate body parts/show images of people underneath their clothing.

Current LCCT (G) at KLIA has no any aerobridge! just wait for the new LCCT to get build in the near future (2011) which will connect with existing Express Rail Link (ERL) !

Etihad to fly KL-Abu Dhabi route daily
Saturday March 21, 2009

KUALA LUMPUR: Etihad Airways, the na**tional airline of the United Arab Emirates, will fly daily between Kuala Lumpur and Abu Dhabi from March 28.

Its country manager in Malaysia, Adam Philips, said the increased flights, which used to be six times a week, would be useful to business travellers.

The opening of Terminal 3 at the Abu Dhabi airport earlier this year had allowed the airline to expand its services.

In addition, passengers purchasing a Pearl Busi*ness Class ticket to Europe, starting at RM14,500, will be able to travel on Diamond First Class from Abu Dhabi to their connecting European destination at no extra cost.

The booking period starts on Monday and ends on April 23. Travellers must depart before May 31 but there is no restriction on the return date.
