Emirates to increase KL-Dubai flights
Published: 2009/04/24

EMIRATES Airlines will increase its flight frequency between Kuala Lumpur and Dubai to 14 weekly from the current 12.

In a statement in KL yesterday, the Dubai-based Emirates said it would launch the new service beginning May 1.

“This increase in flight frequency follows increasing demand from not just business but leisure travellers as well,” said Emirates Malaysia country manager Alban Lee.

He said despite the current economic downturn, the Middle East and Far East continue to register growth in the travel and tourism industries, with Malaysia being a leading holiday destination. — Bernama

Eraman eyes revenue of RM400m
By Jeeva Arulampalam Published: 2009/04/25



DINING and retail outlet operator Malaysia Airport (Niaga) Sdn Bhd, or Eraman Malaysia, expects revenue to grow 30 per cent to RM400 million this year, driven by better sales from new outlets at the domestic airports it services.

"We are hoping that sales will remain strong from our various outlets we operate which include duty-free, clothing and food courts," Eraman Malaysia chief executive officer Umar Bustaman told reporters in Sepang yesterday after the launch of a Marrybrown eatery at the low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT-KLIA).

The company, a wholly-owned unit of Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), manages over 40 retail outlets at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA), Kuching International Airport, Penang International Airport, Labuan Airport, the LCCT-KLIA and terminal 2 at KKIA.

It also provides food and beverage (F&B) management services at the Food Garden KLIA and LCCT-KLIA.

Umar said roughly 80 per cent of the company's retail sales were from outlets at KLIA and LCCT-KLIA.

Eraman Malaysia is the franchisee for the Marrybrown outlet at the LCCT-KLIA and has invested some RM1.6 million in the outlet.

"The passenger traffic, especially from international flights, will continue to rise despite the current economic situation as the low-cost carrier continues to introduce new destinations and increase flight frequencies. This will result in more retail and F&B sales at this terminal," said MAHB chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman.

MAHB recently completed the expansion of the LCCT-KLIA, increasing the capacity from 10 million passengers per annum to 15 million passengers per annum.

Meanwhile, Marrybrown Fried Chicken Sdn Bhd group managing director Nancy Liew said the company expects double-digit growth this year as it continues expanding across Asia and the Middle East.

"We are in 13 countries and have more than 250 outlets, but we are looking to open more outlets such as in Iran and the Maldives (airport)," she said, adding that overseas contribution account for more than half of its total revenue.

Liew added that Marrybrown is in talks to open more Marrybrown outlets at domestic airports but declined to elaborate. It currently has Marrybrown outlets in Senai Airport, the LCCT-KLIA and in Kuching.

MOH on high alert at KLIA
by The Edge Financial Daily
Wednesday, 29 April 2009 00:39

KUALA LUMPUR: The Ministry of Health (MOH) will screen passengers arriving from Los Angeles and New York for any obvious symptoms of the swine flu virus and quarantine action will be done if necessary, similar to the procedure adopted during the SARS scare in 2003.

In a statement yesterday, Malaysian Airline System Bhd (MAS) director of operations, Datuk Tajuden Abu Bakar, said the national carrier would assist in expediting the process as this exercise would invariably cause some inconvenience, especially for passengers with connecting flights.

“We will do our best to minimise this although this exercise is expected to slow down the incoming flow of traffic before the immigration lane. Currently, no travel restrictions have been issued.

“At this stage, Malaysia Airlines has not seen a drop in travel demand and we are still operating as normal. We are in constant and close touch with officials from Malaysia Airports Bhd (MAB), MOH and other airport operators to discuss handling procedures and how best to manage this issue,” he said.

Tajuden said in the meantime, MAS passengers who had already booked for travel to Los Angeles or New York could make changes to their flights at no charge from now until the end of May 2009.

More than 4,000 screened at KLIA
Tuesday May 5, 2009

PUTRAJAYA: A total of 4,452 passengers from 42 flights who touched down at the KL International Airport have been screened for the Influenza A (H1N1).

Health Ministry director-general Tan Sri Dr Ismail Merican said that so far, all patients admitted to the isolation ward in hospitals for further check-ups and observation for the disease had been discharged.

“There is no confirmed Influenza A (H1N1) case in our country,” he said in a statement here yesterday.

He said the ministry and all other government agencies would step up monitoring efforts to protect the public’s health.

Meanwhile, Ireland and Italy confirmed influenza A (H1N1) cases in their countries yesterday, bringing the total to 18 countries which have reported cases – and now standing at 898 cases.

Dr Ismail said the total number of deaths was 20 – 19 from Mexico and one from the United States.

Mexico has reported 506 confirmed cases while the US had recorded a total of 226 cases.

Countries that have reported laboratory confirmed cases with no deaths are Canada (85), Spain (40), Britain (15), Germany (8), New Zealand (4), France (2), Austria (1), Hong Kong (1), Costa Rica (1), Denmark (1), Ireland (1), Israel (3), Italy (1), Netherlands (1), Republic of Korea (1) and Switzerland (1).

Dr Ismail urged Malaysians who had returned from countries affected by the flu and had cough, fever and respiratory infection to seek medical treatment.

“Defer your travel plan to overseas if you are not well,” he said after chairing a meeting with state health directors, hospital heads, specialists and doctors from the private sectors at the Health Management Institute yesterday.

He also said that it was not necessary for the people to wear masks now.

Qatar Airways to add KL-Doha flights
Published: 2009/05/12

QATAR Airways will increase its Kuala Lumpur (KL)-Doha flights by three to ten a week effective June 1, 2009, to cope with rising demand.

In a statement today, Qatar Airways said the move came on the back of strong demand from Malaysian passengers looking to travel overseas.

Its chief executive officer, Akbar Al Bakar, said the additional flights underscored the airline's ongoing expansion, and also showed confidence in Malaysia as a growth market, one that continued to display strong potential.

"KL plays a vital economic role in the Far East and continues to remain a robust economy," he said.

He said under the expansion plans, the airline would launch six routes across India, Australia and Europe over the next ten months, as well as US1 billion (US1=RM3.49) being pumped into expanding facilities at Doha international airport. -- Bernama

MAHB hiring firms to help build budget terminal
By Zuraimi AbdullahPublished: 2009/05/13



MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014) is in the midst of hiring consulting and architecture firms to help build the new permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) at the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang.

Senior general manager of operations Datuk Azmi Murad said construction works should start by year-end.

He, however, did not say if MAHB had started accepting bids for the construction.

Azmi was speaking after the launch of a flight information speech system called "KLIA One Touch" in Sepang yesterday.

MAHB managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said last month that the airport operator was confident of completing the new LCCT and a new runway in two-and-a-half years once work starts.

He estimated that the development cost would not exceed RM2 billion.

The new LCCT can handle up to 30 million passengers a year, with the capacity for expansion of up to 45 million passengers.

Azmi said total passenger arrivals at the KLIA and the current LCCT dropped 0.6 per cent to 8.7 million arrivals year-on-year in the first four months of 2009.

During the January-April period, there was a 16 per cent drop in passenger traffic at the KLIA to 4.7 million, but this was offset by a 31 per cent growth at the LCCT.

Nevertheless, Azmi said he is happy because there has been no cancellations arising from the influenza A (H1N1) outbreak.

"People are cautious of travelling. If they need to, the option is to go for a lower cost of travel. That's why there's negative growth at the main terminal. But I don't see any contraction due to the H1N1 outbreak," he added.

Users can now get flight information directly from KLIA One Touch by calling 03-8776 0888.

The 24-hour system is a self-service interactive voice response provided by NuSuara Technologies Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the Minister of Finance Inc.

For arrival flights, queries can be made based on either flight number or flight's origin city. For departures, queries can be made based on flight number or flight's destination city.

"KLIA One Touch is capable of handling 30 calls at any one time with two language options available - Bahasa Malaysia and English," NuSuara chief executive officer Datuk Dr Ramly Abbas said.

Tourist arrivals unaffected
Wednesday May 13, 2009

SEPANG: The global economic crisis has not affected the number of arrivals at either the KL International Airport (KLIA) or the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT).

Malaysia Airports Bhd senior general manager (operations) Datuk Azmi Murad said there was only a 0.6% drop in the number of arrivals at both KLIA and LCCT between January and April.

Azmi said 8.7 million arrivals were recorded at the KLIA and LCCT in the first four months of this year.

“Of those, 3.8 million were for the LCCT. This is a growth of 31% while the main terminal (KLIA) had 4.9 million passengers,” Azmi told a press conference at the KLIA here yesterday.

He said there has not been any cancellation of flights despite the A (H1N1) flu scare.

Besides that, Azmi said discussions for a permanent LCCT was in progress and work was expected to begin this year.

Earlier, Azmi launched the “KLIA 1 Touch”, a flight information speech system with a self-service interactive voice response dedicated to providing callers with flight information.

The service is available 24 hours a day with the system being able to handle 30 concurrent calls at any time. Users can obtain flight information directly by calling 03-8776 0888.

Flight Information Speech System a boost
Wednesday May 13, 2009
By CHARLES FERNANDEZ

AIRPORT travellers can now obtain flight information directly with the introduction of the Flight Information Speech System (FISS) called the “KLIA 1 Touch”.

The self-service interactive voice response (IVR) dedicated to provide callers with flight information by just dialling 03-8776 0888 was launched by Malaysia Airports senior general manager (Operations) Datuk Azmi Murad at the Kuala Lumpur Internatioanl Airport (KLIA) in Sepang.

The 24-hour system which will complement the present customer service agent, provides information on flight arrivals and flight departures based on the flight numbers and the city of origin and destination.

The speech system assumes a frontline role for call pick-up, allowing the call to be routed to the customer service agent, when necessary.

KLIA 1 Touch is capable of handling 30 calls at any one time and although presently available only in two languages — Bahasa Malaysia and English, Malaysia Airports would be introducing Mandarin and Arab to provide convenience to a wider spectrum of callers.

“Apart from giving more value added service to customers, we are always looking at ways to enhance our cutomer services and we believe that the KLIA 1 Touch will be a service which the public will find very helpful,” said Azmi.

The system introduced by NuSuara Technologies (NT), is capable of recognising the caller ID and if the caller makes subsequent calls, the KLIA 1 Touch is able to recollect the caller’s previous query.

Azmi said in order to maintain competitiveness in the market, the bottom line was to keep pace with market demands and one way of achieving these goals was through the automation of repetitive or routine activities using IVR technology.

He said at the moment, KLIA 1 Touch was only available for KLIA and LCCT-KLIA users in obtaining flight information but plans were in the pipeline to have this service extended to other airports to reach customers nationwide.

NT chief executive officer Datuk Ramli Abbas said he was confident travellers would find the KLIA 1 Touch handy in planning their travel.

“It is a time-saving information retrieval system, at the convenience of the customers.

“It is a user-friendly enquiry service provided free and accessible 24-hours,” said Ramli.
