More than just an airport
By CHLOE CHIN



An artist impression of what the refurbished Terminal 3
will look like: doesn’t it look like it’s about to take flight?


Did you think that the old Terminal 3 building at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport was terminally ill? Far from it. There are big plans afoot for it.

WHEN Terminal 3 of the Subang International Airport (now the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport) was built in 1993, the design was kept simple. It was, after all, built to cater to passengers on domestic routes flown by Malaysia Airlines - not exactly a big market in those days.

After operations of the main terminals moved to the award-winning KL International Airport leaving just a few private aviation companies operating from Terminal 3, the complex became sadly dilapidated, the site of the occasional warehouse sale or other one-off use.

But there were plans for it, which are now coming close to fuition, and they are rather big, these plans.

The plans come from Subang SkyPark Sdn Bhd, which has been given a 59-year lease by the Malaysian Government to develop not only the terminal building, which currently serves Berjaya Air and FireFly airlines, but also to reposition the airport as a regional hub for executive jets, as Malaysia’s International Aerospace Centre.

And the budget’s a tad bigger: RM350mil for the overall development, and RM40mil just for the terminal building.

At an interview last week, Subang SkyPark’s CEO, Janadhanan Gopala Krishnan said, “Through a RM40mil regeneration plan, Subang SkyPark hopes to give the facility a brand new image as well as return the grand dame of Malaysia’s airports to its rightful place on the world’s aviation map.”

In the past decade, airports internationally have been developed and re-built all over the world, setting new standards and raising expectations among international travellers.

It is important to recognise that any new design needs to be relevant not just on opening day, but for the next 15-20 years.

“Therefore, it must have an aesthetic that can stand the test of time,” says Martin Haeger, director of the hl design group, an international firm that is working with the terminal’s design and build team comprising local architectural firms Arcradius Sdn Bhd and Kasda.

“The aviation industry is the epitome of advanced technology, so the identity of this airport must reflect an image that is state-of-the-art and of its time,” points out Haeger.

Haeger’s firm is developing the designs for the planned commercial nexus that will be located directly opposite the terminal. With the two local firms, hl design has created a new “external envelope” for the Terminal 3 building that gives it a fresh new identity far removed from its original bleakly industrial feel.

The new white composite prefab cladding of the shell will simply wrap around the existing structure - Arcradius had developed the idea to retain the existing fabric by “building boxes in a box” and causing minimal interference with the building while its interior is being transformed.

The hl design group’s associate director, Matthew Allen, explains that, “We have attempted to transform its identity using a bold form, strong dynamic lines and clean simple details, which are the essence of aviation.”

Aerodynamic forms dominate the artist impression we are shown: strong curved lines completely conceal the original box-like exterior and the structure’s side view has the profile of the cross-section of an airplane wing.

The terminal will be linked by an elevated bridge to the commercial site opposite €“ because, as Haeger puts it, “It’s not just about getting on the aeroplane”.



The luxurious SkyPark Fixed Based Operation reception
area will cater to passengers boarding private aircraft.


In fact, the SkyPark Subang Terminal will attempt to draw not just passengers but customers. As Mohamad Faisal Ghazali of Arcradius and Khairul Anwar of Kasda explain, the interior of the terminal will have a “mall ambiance”: Visitors will enter a lobby that is surrounded by terrace balconies; generous applications of glass and metal interwoven throughout the solid interior walls highlight the modernity of the design while providing that mall ambiance.

Mezzanines are linked to each other by open staircases and surrounded by glass terrace balconies overlooking the atrium, creating the gallery-like feel most major shopping complexes in Malaysia have.

The pair’s designs for the interior substantially increase space for retail and F&B outlets as well as new banking facilities, commercial offices, and check in and satellite departure facilities.

“Spaces are rearranged by consolidating and creating new mezzanine planes opening into a well-lighted two-storey single atrium ... a suspended ceiling enhanced with fibre optic lighting will produce a starry night effect,” adds Kamal.

Another significant addition to the old Terminal 3 functions is the SkyPark Fixed Based Operation (FBO) lounge, a 5-star arrival/departure lounge for corporate and personal jets in the private enclave of the SkyPark Subang Terminal.

This area will have a separate entrance - a portico on a grand scale has been proposed - that will lead the guest into a spacious lobby and reception area and then into a large lounge.

All this - the refurbishment of the terminal building and creation of FBO facilities - is part of the overall three-year plan to develop SkyPark Subang in three “thrusts”.

Thrust I will include the upgraded terminal building and the FBO facilities.

Thrust II will see the creation of a regional aviation centre that includes maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities, dedicated hangarage, and corporate aviation related industries.

And Thrust III will see the creation of a commercial nexus, a leisure mall that is tourism-centric revolving around an aviation theme.

The aim, says Subang Skypark Sdn Bhd, is to create a trend-setting destination that is tourism and lifestyle-centric that will cater not only to today’s discerning travellers but consumers, too.

VistaJet to provide executive jet service
By B.K. SIDHU

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian businessman can hire an executive jet, with Switzerland-based VistaJet setting up a hub at the Subang SkyPark Terminal at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport.

Hiring a charter executive jet also eliminates the need for huge investments to buy an aircraft and paying the fees for keeping the plane in a hangar. It also saves on fuel costs and hiring a pilot to fly the plane.

VistaJet now has two aircraft and by year-end this will increase to 22 that can virtually fly anyone from Malaysia around the globe. VistaJet plans to capture the Asian market from its base in Subang.

Once confined to the rich and famous, the executive jet is becoming more popular among business travellers that have to fly several time zones for their meetings.

Of course the charges are a lot higher than for a commercial flight but for businessmen who have to traverse several zones, chartering an executive jet outweighs flying in a commercial aircraft where the traveller has to face long security checks, long waits in airports and a lack of direct connectivity that makes the journey even longer.

Today Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak will officially launch VistaJet’s entry into Asia via the newly built SkyPark FBO Malaysia facility at Terminal 3. The launch will be witnessed by Transport Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat.

Where the sky’s the limit
Sunday July 12, 2009
By SANDRA LOW
Source: http://thestar.com.my/lifestyle/stor...sec=lifeliving



The Learjet 60XR is a midsize corporate aircraft
with a passenger capacity of up to seven.


There’s a growing trend among the well-heeled of flying privately. Find out what it’s like to take to the skies in total luxury.

ANYONE who has ever made that mad dash to the airport, waited in line for boarding and then been packed like a sardine into economy class would have surely wondered what it would be like to travel in style.

If you’ve got money to spare, business or first class would certainly alleviate some of the misery of modern-day travel, but you would still have to spend hours in an airport waiting for a commercial flight.

The solution? Flying by private jet, of course!

Thomas Flohr, founder and chairman of Vistajet Holding SA, a private aviation company, says the ultimate luxury in travel is saving time.

“By travelling on a commercial flight, you are subjected to postponements or cancellations, and that can make a huge difference to a CEO or senior board member,” explains Flohr in an e-mail interview from the company’s headquarters in Salzburg, Austria.

According to him, the benefits of private travel include being able to take off and land at a client’s airport of choice and at a time that suits the traveller – subject, of course, to airport regulations.

“It is the ultimate in luxury and convenience, and the only way that our clients are able to make the most of their precious time,’’ Flohr says. “Once people experience private aviation, they do not fly any other way.”



Airline food will never be the same again once you’ve tasted what the best
chefs whip up and serve in style on board the Bombardier Global Express XRS.
– Photos from Vistajet


Flohr tells of how he was a private jet customer when he was the European president of a company involved in IT financing back in 2003, but he still had difficulty in finding the sort of service that he expected from private airlines.

He found it frustrating that there were so many rules but hardly any service, and that the aircrafts were mostly run on the whim of the owners.

“So I acquired a plane and within three months, it was always booked out. Then, I bought another one and the business virtually funded itself,” says Flohr.

He immediately saw the opportunity to build a luxury brand and founded Vistajet in 2004.

Currently, the company boasts a fleet of 23 jets and it is expecting to take delivery of another seven jets by the end of the year.

Flohrs says its fleet consists entirely of brand new Bombardier aircraft, chosen for its ability to provide the highest levels of luxury, safety and security. Its current service area includes Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Although the aviation industry as a whole has been affected by the economic downturn, Flohr sees potential in the Asia Pacific region.

He is optimistic that Vistajet can outride the current slowdown: “Our goal is to increase international business by 30% this year,’’ he says.

His interest in setting up office here was a result of the Malaysian Government’s plan to turn part of Selangor’s Subang Airport into a regional executive aviation hub to compete with Singapore and Hong Kong.

“We identified Asia as a key region to grow the business, and the Subang Skypark (as the re-purposed Subang Airport will be called) as a hub for expanding operations in this market,” he tells.

As a result, Vistajet signed an MoU with the Skypark last January and now provides a full range of flight solutions for customers who want to travel in style.

Vistajet has three dedicated aircrafts servicing the Asian region; a Bombardier Challenger 605, a Bombardier Challenger 850 and a Learjet 60XR.

However, according to Flohr, the entire fleet is mobile and the region benefits from access to Vistajet’s entire fleet at any time.

“The business in Malaysia has started well and seen continued growth. Our client base here reflects those who typically use business aviation, like CEOs, entrepreneurs and high-net worth individuals. Our customers have included some high-profile individuals, like Formula 1 team owner Flavio Briatore.

“We are the only business jet company to offer combined commercial flight and charter options in Asia Pacific,” he points out.

Flohr says that the company recruits the best service staff from the high-end luxury hospitality industry, and pilots come from military, commercial or private aviation backgrounds.

For an unsurpassed travel experience, an unrivalled level of comfort is also essential – and that, in Flohr’s book, means luxurious tan and cream leather cabins, state-of-the-art DVD/CD players, satellite phones, LAN Internet access, video and LCD monitors, and premium sound systems to keep passengers happy on board.

Additionally, travellers can choose from queen-sized beds or luxurious seats with massage systems. Hospitality is provided on every flight and the service includes an exceptional quality of food, fine wines, and champagnes.

“No request is too big or too small to meet for our customers. Our bespoke menus are tailored to individual client requirements. If the client is travelling with young children, we will ensure that there is adequate and appropriate entertainment on board by providing toys and videogames.

“As with the best in the luxury service industry, it is the anticipation of those needs that makes flying with us such a special experience,” he says proudly.

According to Flohr, Vistajet clients are accustomed to the highest standards of living so they do sometimes have very unusual requests.

“We recently had a client who insisted that his favourite cocktail, Kir Royale, was made with only a 1996 vintage of Dom Perignon. This is renowned as being one of the best vintages available so we had some in stock and were able to grant him his wish,” he quips.

Now that’s what flying in style is all about!

■ Rates for Vistajet flights vary from US$5,000 to US$7,400 (RM17,616 to RM26,072) per hour depending on aircraft type; these hourly rates exclude overnight services, ground handling, landing permits, and navigation.

VistaJet And Skypark FBO To Help Develop MIAC Into Pulsating Centre For Private Aviation

image hosted on flickr


Skypark Subang Terminal 3

SUBANG, The introduction of VistaJet's charter services and the opening of SkyPark Fixed Base Operation (FB0) will take the country a step further in helping the Malaysian government realise its broader vision of developing the Malaysia International Aerospace Centre (MIAC) in Subang into a pulsating and thriving centre of private aviation, the largest and the finest in Asean, if not, Asia.

"We have one of the longest runways for private aircraft in the region and we have much room for expansion," said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said it was most heartening that this development in Malaysia's aviation industry was taking place now, amid a most uncertain global business climate which has affected all industries and in particular aviation.

"We are all too aware of how skyrocketing fuel prices and other escalating operational costs are pushing aviation players, especially commercial airlines, to their very limit," he said.

Najib said while commercial airlines faced greater challenges in keeping their business in the black, private aviation, however, has experienced somewhat of an upturn.

"Hence, there is now a bigger market for this niche segment of aviation, as more and more people from among the well-heeled and the corporate big-wigs shun the hassles of commercial travel in favour of simplicity, comfort and exclusivity.

"As they say, within every adversity is an opportunity," he said at the signing ceremony of charter services between Subang SkyPark and VistaJet and FBO agreement between Subang SkyPark and SkyPark FBO Malaysia, Execujet Holdings Australia and Hawker Pacific Asia, the launch of VistaJet and opening of SkyPark FBO Malaysia here today.

Subang Skypark Sdn Bhd is the concepteur, developer, manager and operator of general and corporate aviation hubs for the region.

VistaJet is a privately-owned company headquartered in Switzerland. ExecuJet Aviation Group and Hawker Pacific are two of the world's leading players in business aviation.

VistaJet will base two corporate jets worth more that US$60 million (US$1= RM3.28) in Subang, namely, the Bombardier Challenger CL605 and the Challenger CL850.

Another jet will be joining the fleet to serve Malaysia and the Asian market in 2009, which will bring the cumulative value of aircraft in excess of US$100 million. Najib said the potential for growth in the private jet sector of the aviation industry was enormous.

He said considering the astronomical costs of owning and maintaining a private corporate jet, many Malaysians would find the special revolutionary VistaJet Flight Solution Programmes attractive and practical in the long run.

"The fact of the matter is that the strong overall showing in private jet deliveries is testimony to the increasing recognition of private jets as important tools for global businesses by more and more multinational corporations and businessmen having interests around the world.

"No longer are private lets the exclusive domain of royalty and the creme de la creme of high society."

Najib said the Malaysian Government, on its part, was ready to render all the necessary support and assistance to companies interested in establishing their operations in this sector, as it has done in the case for other global brands that have invested in Malaysia.

"With the growing interest in the number of corporate jets around the world, FBO operators such as ExecuJet Aviation Group and Hawker Pacific Asia will find Subang an excellent gateway between the other continents of the world and Asia," he said.

Skypark FBO Malaysia - the new fixed based operation from ExecuJet and Hawker Pacific
Subang Skypark



Official inauguration set for June 2 - ExecuJet Aviation Group and Hawker Pacific, two of the leading players in business aviation, have joined forces to officially inaugurate Skypark Malaysia, a new and exclusive Fixed Base Operation at Malaysia's Subang Airport. The new facility has been created with the full endorsement and support of Subang Skypark. It will offer full handling facilities plus a VIP lounge and fuel provision in a brand new 8,000 sq ft facility. Furthermore, the agreement includes exclusive rights for Hawker Pacific and ExecuJet to move to another new building, which will be completed in two years' time.

The new Joint Venture between ExecuJet, which is expanding its activity in Asia and Hawker Pacific, which has enjoyed a presence in the region for some 30 years, was sealed at Europe's premier business aviation show, EBACE, in Geneva this week. Earlier in the week, ExecuJet announced the opening of new bases in Mumbai, India and in Moscow. Skypark Malaysia will be added to the respective ExecuJet and Hawker Pacific chain of worldwide FBOs.

New MRO hangars will be constructed within the dedicated business aircraft precinct, and the 5000 sq m facilities are expected to open within 12 months. Hawker Pacific and ExecuJet will operate their individual MRO activities in these purpose built facilities.

"I am delighted that two prominent and highly reputable players in this fast expanding business aviation sector have combined to form this partnership and offer a world class service at Skypark Subang choosing Malaysia to spearhead their respective expansion into the Asian region. This joint collaboration by both ExecuJet and Hawker Pacific at Skypark Subang forms a first of its kind and we are excited at being a part of this partnership. We look forward to working closely with them in this venture,'" said Datuk Ravindran Menon, Group Executive Director of Skypark.

Gerrit Basson, Group Managing Director of ExecuJet commented: "This new facility complements our newly announced activity in India and Singapore and further underlines the commitment we are making in this important and fast growing Asian region. We will be working closely with Hawker Pacific on joint investment in skills and resources."

Alan Smith, CEO of Hawker Pacific added. "We are excited to partner with ExecuJet in Malaysia, an organisation which shares our philosophy and commitment to customer service and genuine passion for the business aviation fraternity. Together we are well prepared to respond to the increasing number of business travellers coming to this vibrant region."
Asian Expansion

The Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport is to receive a US$91 million injection of funds to transform its Terminal 3 into a corporate jet hub, a redevelopment project being undertaken by Subang Skypark, an independent company, and which also involves the construction of dedicated MRO and aircraft parking hangars. Work is scheduled for completion by 2010.

Negri govt wants dual carriageway link to KLIA
Thursday July 23, 2009

SEREMBAN: The state government wants the federal authorities to construct a 45km dual carriageway linking Seremban to KL International Airport (KLIA) as the current stretch cannot accommodate the increasing number of vehicles.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said this was among the state’s priorities under the Tenth Malaysia Plan (10MP) from 2011-2015.

“We need a dual carriageway as the population in Bandar Enstek, Sendayan and Gadong, among others, has increased rapidly.

“With a dual carriageway the traffic along the North-South Expressway from Seremban to KLIA and Putrajaya would be reduced,” he said, adding that the road would enable a straight drive to Putrajaya and Cyberjaya.

Speaking to reporters after chairing the exco meeting at Wisma Negri here, he added that this would also lessen the burden on motorists as the new stretch would be toll-free.

Mohamad said the state government also hoped the federal authorities would provide sufficient funds to enable it to upgrade the Seremban-Gemas and Seremban-Kuala Pilah-Ayer Hitam stretches.

“Our priorities under 10MP are to upgrade these stretches as the smaller towns along these routes have also been expanding,” he said, adding that accidents are also increasing along these routes.

Until recently I thought that British Airways and Air France also served this route.
Currently, the only European carrier that service KLIA is KLM.

If i m not mistaken, Lufthansa only codeshare KL-Germany route with Thai Airways.

Moves to get turboprops flying into Skypark Subang
By Presenna NambiarPublished: 2009/03/09

THE government is in talks with two airlines operating turboprops, Riau Airlines and Bangkok Airways, to fly to Skypark Subang.

The developer of Skypark Subang, formerly Terminal 3 of the Subang airport, said there were many turboprop operators in the region and it was keen to bring them here.

"We are facilitating the talks because they are more of a government-to-government issue dealing with landing rights," Subang Skypark Sdn Bhd managing director Datuk Ravindran Menon told Business Times.

He said the government has been supportive of Skypark Subang and has indicated that there will be more routes given out to Firefly and Berjaya Air, the two main airlines using the airport currently.

Ravindran said, however, that the operator would not be depending on passenger traffic alone to bring life to Skypark Subang.

"The goal is to make Skypark Subang not just an airport, but a destination for the surrounding community. A place for meetings or just to sit and chat," he said.

Skypark Subang is part of a three-phase initiative to develop the area.

The first phase, which includes the redevelopment of Terminal 3, is almost complete, with only some work left to be done on the facade. It is expected to be completed by the end of next month.

Phase 2 of the redevelopment will start soon as tenders have been called.

It will entail the creation of a regional aviation centre with two maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities, and 10 hangars, run by the Switzerland-based ExecuJet Aviation Group and Australia's Hawker Pacific.

The 4.5ha commercial nexus, part of the third phase, is close to finalising the design.

It will feature a hotel, retail outlets, an aviation museum and a state-of-the-art multi-purpose hall.

Subang Skypark plans to spend RM350 million over the next two years to develop the terminal into an airport city.

Ravindran said the company expects to recoup its investment in 10 years.

VistaJet And Skypark FBO To Help Develop MIAC Into Pulsating Centre For Private Aviation
Bernama

SUBANG, (Bernama) -- The introduction of VistaJet's charter services and the opening of SkyPark Fixed Base Operation (FB0) will take the country a step further in helping the Malaysian government realise its broader vision of developing the Malaysia International Aerospace Centre (MIAC) in Subang into a pulsating and thriving centre of private aviation, the largest and the finest in Asean, if not, Asia.

"We have one of the longest runways for private aircraft in the region and we have much room for expansion," said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said it was most heartening that this development in Malaysia's aviation industry was taking place now, amid a most uncertain global business climate which has affected all industries and in particular aviation.

"We are all too aware of how skyrocketing fuel prices and other escalating operational costs are pushing aviation players, especially commercial airlines, to their very limit," he said.

Najib said while commercial airlines faced greater challenges in keeping their business in the black, private aviation, however, has experienced somewhat of an upturn.

"Hence, there is now a bigger market for this niche segment of aviation, as more and more people from among the well-heeled and the corporate big-wigs shun the hassles of commercial travel in favour of simplicity, comfort and exclusivity.

"As they say, within every adversity is an opportunity," he said at the signing ceremony of charter services between Subang SkyPark and VistaJet and FBO agreement between Subang SkyPark and SkyPark FBO Malaysia, Execujet Holdings Australia and Hawker Pacific Asia, the launch of VistaJet and opening of SkyPark FBO Malaysia here today.

Subang Skypark Sdn Bhd is the concepteur, developer, manager and operator of general and corporate aviation hubs for the region.

VistaJet is a privately-owned company headquartered in Switzerland. ExecuJet Aviation Group and Hawker Pacific are two of the world's leading players in business aviation.

VistaJet will base two corporate jets worth more that US$60 million (US$1= RM3.28) in Subang, namely, the Bombardier Challenger CL605 and the Challenger CL850.

Another jet will be joining the fleet to serve Malaysia and the Asian market in 2009, which will bring the cumulative value of aircraft in excess of US$100 million. Najib said the potential for growth in the private jet sector of the aviation industry was enormous.

He said considering the astronomical costs of owning and maintaining a private corporate jet, many Malaysians would find the special revolutionary VistaJet Flight Solution Programmes attractive and practical in the long run.

"The fact of the matter is that the strong overall showing in private jet deliveries is testimony to the increasing recognition of private jets as important tools for global businesses by more and more multinational corporations and businessmen having interests around the world.

"No longer are private lets the exclusive domain of royalty and the creme de la creme of high society."

Najib said the Malaysian Government, on its part, was ready to render all the necessary support and assistance to companies interested in establishing their operations in this sector, as it has done in the case for other global brands that have invested in Malaysia.

"With the growing interest in the number of corporate jets around the world, FBO operators such as ExecuJet Aviation Group and Hawker Pacific Asia will find Subang an excellent gateway between the other continents of the world and Asia," he said.
