Subang to become hub for corporate jets
By DERRICK VINESH

Holding AG Thomas Flohr looking at a model of the Subang SkyPark


LANGKAWI: Malaysians can expect a “very busy Subang airport” with a RM300mil injection to transform Terminal 3 into Asean’s biggest hub for corporate jets.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said the Subang SkyPark, which would be completed by 2010, would “turn Kuala Lumpur into an internationally recognised general aviation hub.”

The 20-year-old Subang airport had excellent runway and facilities, he said in an interview yesterday.

Initially, 20 local aviation companies would take part and were expected to generate spill over benefits in logistics as well as in maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities, he said.

The hub was part of the Malaysian International Aerospace Centre blueprint that was launched in August 2005, Chan said.

He said Firefly and Berjaya Air would continue using Terminal 1 while Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd’s (MAHB) corporate headquarters would remain at Terminal 2.

Earlier, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his deputy Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak witnessed a signing ceremony for the Subang hub between MAHB and Subang SkyPark Sdn Bhd.

Subang SkyPark executive director Datuk Ravindran Menon said the development of Terminal 3 would see three key thrusts in the next three years.

“We will initially spend RM30mil to upgrade infrastructure and five-star fixed base operation facilities by March.

“We will also invest RM180mil in a commercial nexus, which will include a commercial and tourism-centric leisure destination.

“Later, we will develop dedicated hangars, as well as a regional aviation centre with MRO facilities costing about RM100mil,” he said

Subang SkyPark aims for RM7m sales
Published: 2009/08/17

SUBANG SkyPark Sdn Bhd is confident of recording RM6 million to RM7 million in revenue from its refurbished Skypark Subang Terminal (SST), formerly known as Terminal 3, by May next year.

Executive director Tan Sri Ravindran Menon said the city airport operator was confident of achieving its target with the completion of works at SST by October this year.

"The RM40 million terminal is 90 per cent completed and destined to become Malaysia''s premier airport in the city," he told reporters at a media sneak preview of the SST today.

When fully operational, the SST is able to accommodate an average of 60 flights daily, comprising of local and regional arrivals and departures, he said.

Presently, Berjaya Air and Firefly are using the terminal for international and domestic flights.

The 150,000-square foot SST is expected to handle 2.5 million passengers by end of this year, Ravindran said.

Currently, passenger numbers are peaking at 60,000 a month, he said.

The company is involved in the RM300 million redevelopment plan for the Subang airport, consisting of RM40 million for phase one, RM110 million for phase two and RM150 million for phase three.

Ravindran said the three phases included a city airport for turbo-prop aircraft, fixed base operations for business jets, and maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities.

The three phases are scheduled for full completion by end-2011, he said. -- Bernama

MAHB enters 1st phase of new hub plan
Published: 2009/08/18

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), in keeping with current travel trends and technology savvy travellers, today launched the first phase of its Next Generation Hub programme.

As part of the programme, the KL International Airport (KLIA) is being positioned as a next generation hub, a premier airport that will enable passengers to connect seamlessly amongst all types of carriers including full service airlines and low-cost carriers to all destinations served from KLIA.

For a start, MAHB and KLIA launched the web portal www.flyklia.com, which provides an itinerary builder that integrates all airlines schedules and fares, including full service carriers and low-cost carriers.

"We want to come out with facilities that help the passengers to travel in our airport in a more comfortable manner.

"We hope people will make use of it. The aviation industry is changing. Ten years ago it was different. Today, passengers can actually choose their own itinerary, their own fares.

"Ten years from now, I''m sure the industry will change from what it is now and we are going to be ready for it," MAHB's managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad told reporters after the web portal launch today.

Currently, there are 54 airlines in KLIA featured in the website.

Asked whether the airport operator will add more airlines in the website, Bashir said they will be added as they come on board.

The itinerary builder was developed in partnership with an Iceland-based technology company which provides innovative technology solutions for the travel industry.

The Flight Planner, which is free to use, searches more than 660 airlines worldwide for the best flights and connections available.

The search results include links to airlines and other travel portals where travellers can book flights directly.

Besides flight booking options, the website also features information such as the operating airlines at KLIA, facilities available and environmental efforts at KLIA.

The portal would be continually enhanced and for the next phase of development, MAHB is already looking at including hotel booking engine which will compare prices for properties in and outside Malaysia.

MAHB also plans to add an Airport Frequent Connector Loyalty programme, which is aimed at rewarding the frequent travellers.

On news report regarding MAHB to announce a new set of financial incentives for airlines that fly out of the 39 airports it operates in the country, Bashir said discussions will be held with the airlines the next one or two weeks before an announcement is made.

"The incentives are actually to reward the airlines that bring business to the airport (KLIA)," Bashir said. - Bernama

Skypark takes the stress out of flying
Ng Suzhen Tuesday, August 18th, 2009 09:20:00



LIVELY: Skypark Subang Terminal sets
out to be different from other airports


SKYPARK Subang Terminal will stand out from other airports as it injects some lifestyle into the hustle and bustle of rushing to board flights.

“There are two types of people who take flights. One are those who are constantly in a rush. All they need is a business centre to check some emails and they would be on their way. Another type, are those who enjoy a more leisurely time looking around. This is where this terminal offers more than just a place to accommodate flights, we provide a variety of lifestyle choices,” said Subang Skypark Sdn Bhd executive director Tan Sri Ravindran Menon.

These lifestyle choices include restaurants, shops and entertainment like a live jazz band in the evenings. The airport’s interior architecture gives prominence to spaciousness and has wide walkways.



ATTRACTION: Live jazz band in the evenings

The terminal has franchise food and beverage outlets such as Starbucks, Big Apple Donuts & Coffee and 1901 Hotdogs. There will soon be a wine bar and a fine dining area.

The Skypark is already operational with some 10 per cent of finishing work left. It can accommodate about 60 flights a day, comprising local and regional arrivals and departures.

It is home to Berjaya Air and Firefly, and both Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia which also operate ticketing offices there.

The 150,000 square-foot terminal is expected to handle 2.5 million passengers by the end of this year.

Private aviation facilities

BESIDES servicing domestic and regional flights, Skypark Subang Terminal’s dedicated private aviation terminal is now fully operational with a runway capable of accommodating a 747 jetliner.

It will serve as the country’s gateway for inbound and outbound corporate and private jets.

Dubbed the Skypark Fixed Based Operations Malaysia, there are plans to use 30 acres of land for hanger facilities to house privatelyowned aircraft.

Private jet travellers will have a bundle of facilities to enjoy. There is a lounge for travellers and a VVIP room for those who want some private rest and relaxation.

Conference rooms are available for business meetings. The airport also has rest areas for pilots and crew members who can enjoy the use of a gym, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms to freshen up and prepare themselves for what might be a long flight ahead.

Originally known as the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport Subang Terminal 3, and built in 1993 to cater to Malaysian Airlines’ domestic flights, the airport was subsequently used by private aviation companies when commercial airline operations moved to Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal in Sepang.

Subang set to reposition itself on the world aviation map
Thursday August 20, 2009

THE SkyPark Subang Terminal is set to be Malaysia’s premier airport in the city and reposition itself firmly on the world aviation map.

Members of the media were recently taken on a tour of the airport by Subang SkyPark Sdn Bhd executive director Tan Sri Ravindran Menon.

With only 10% work yet to be completed, the RM40mil terminal is fully operational and now accommodates an average of 60 flights a day, comprising local and regional arrivals and departures.



Practical and convenient: The layout of the terminal
is designed to meet the requirements of air travellers.


The airport is home to Berjaya Air and Firefly, and both Malaysia Airlines and Air Asia also operate ticketing offices there.

The city airport has 13 check-in counters, separate departure and arrival halls for international and domestic travellers, and three immigration counters for both inbound and outbound flights.

The 13,935 sq metre SkyPark Subang Terminal is expected to handle 2.5 million passengers by the end of this year.

The SkyPark Subang Terminal is part of an extensive overall RM400mil exercise to transform the existing facilities in Subang into a regional hub for aviation that comprises a city airport for turbo-prop airlines, a fixed base operations (FBO), and maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities (MRO).

The terminal’s dedicated private aviation terminal is also already fully operational, and, with a runway capable of accommodating a 747 jetliner, it will serve as the country’s gateway for inbound and outbound corporate and private jets. Dubbed the SkyPark FBO Malaysia, it has also planned 12.14ha of land for hangarage facilities to house privately- owned aircraft.

“We would like to envision SkyPark Subang Terminal as the grand central station for domestic and regional aviation. With the refurbishment that has been undertaken, the availability of flights to and from the more popular destinations, connectivity, by virtue of its strategic location, proximity to the city, accessibility, and the cost savings it extends travellers, we believe this airport will return Subang on the world aviation map in an even bigger way,” Ravindran said.

“We anticipate the airport becoming the preferred embarkation and disembarkation point for frequent and urban air travellers,” he added.



No cramping: The terminal is spacious with wide walkways, and emphasises the comfort of airport visitors and travellers.

Four dedicated lanes serve as an entry point into SkyPark Subang Terminal to avoid congestion: The first, which is nearest to the terminal entrance, is for passenger drop-off and pick-up; the second is for taxis and valet parking; the third, for coach and delivery vehicles; and the fourth, for special access to the corporate aviation facility.

There is also valet parking service – a first for Malaysian airports – while just across the road is a 750-bay open-air parking area that is accessible via an overhead pedestrian bridge leading directly into the terminal.

There are two parking bays for the physically-challenged in the driveway, as well as an elevator in the city airport to reach the upper level.

The internal design is practical and convenient for air travellers.

As soon as passengers step into the departure section, they will find the ticketing offices of the four airlines, the check-in counters and the two banks (Maybank and CIMB) all strategically positioned.

On the mezzanine floor above is the corporate office of Vistajet Holdings SA that operates its luxury Bombardier fleet comprising the Learjet 60, Challenger 604, a Challenger 605 and a Challenger 850 in catering to both domestic and regional private aviation needs.

The terminal is spacious with wide walkways, and emphasises the comfort of airport visitors and travellers.

Food and beverage outlets are aplenty, and include Starbucks, Big Apple Donuts & Coffee, Sakura Cuisine and Cafe, Kapitan Kopitiam, 1901 Hotdogs, an Italian pizza outlet, a noodles speciality restaurant, a sports bar and grill, a dedicated section serving popular local delicacies, a chocolate shop, an ice cream bar and a fruit juice “island”.

And, in a first for an airport in Malaysia that is touted as a “lifestyle destination”, a jazz band performs six evenings a week at the lobby of the arrival hall next to the F&B outlets.

The airport also two courier service companies, a mini-emporium D’Trend Avenue, a money changer, three reflexology and fish spas (at the main lobby and domestic and international departure halls), and a luggage deposit counter where those who wish to travel light can safely deposit their belongings under lock and key.

Other outlets include two magazine stores, a souvenir shop, a handphone service provider and a duty-free store at the international arrival/departure hall.

Originally known as the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport Subang Terminal 3, and built in 1993 to cater to Malaysia Airlines’ domestic flights, the airport was subsequently used by private aviation companies when commercial airline operations shifted to the KL International Airport (KLIA) and the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) in Sepang.

More choices for travellers
MAB's new web portal enables passengers to choose the lowest fare, quickest route to a destination
Ng Suzhen Wednesday, August 19th, 2009 07:35:00



A STEP FORWARD: (From left) Datuk Azmi Murad MAB senior general manager

Mansur MAB CFO


TRAVELLING trends are changing and our local aviation industry has picked up on the changes.

Yesterday, KL International Airport (KLIA) and Malaysia Airports Bhd (MAB) launched the first phase of the Next Generation Hub, a web portal called www.flyklia.com, which provides an itinerary builder that integrates all airlines' schedules and fare, including full service carriers and low-cost carriers.

Through this web portal, travellers are able to choose the lowest fare and the quickest route to a destination.

“We may not be the first to offer such services to travellers but we are the most updated,” said MAB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad.

He added that this portal also serves to facilitate people to use Kuala Lumpur as a transit point. In the past, such information was possible but required much more work and hassle. With one website to find the connections, travellers can save time.

The flight planner on the portal, which is free, searches more than 660 airlines worldwide for the best flights and connections available. The search results include links to airlines and other travel portals where travellers can book flights directly.

“The portal empowers the traveller with tools to build unique itineraries. At a touch of a button, travellers may choose to arrive at their destination on full-service carriers and depart on a low-cost carrier. Such combinations would not show up on a regular booking engine.”

Moreover, the website is easy to navigate, said Bashir.

With the launch of the website, Malaysia Airports is also excited to introduce the new “KLIA Next Generation Hub — The new way to the world” branding to convey a new way of doing things for both passengers and airlines.

As for what phase two of the plan will be, Bashir said it will be announced when the time comes.

Nazrey,

Since you seem to be so active in this thread, can you please post pictures of the new glass "anti-tout" walls that have been built in the arrival hall? They were half way done when I landed in KLIA in June.

The saddest part of KLIA is that even though it boasts some of the best infrastructure I've ever seen, the tout problem is horrendous. Matter of fact, Skytrax did mention that KLIA might not make it to the top 10 airports in the world for 2010 because of chronic management problems:
-the baggage claim issue (I have used KLIA more than 10 times in the past 6 months and my luggage ALWAYS took more than 40 minutes to make it, unacceptable if KLIA claims to be a leading airport -compare 10mn with Changi, Bangkok or Hong Kong)
-the bathrooms are always nasty and not well kept! I don't know why
-finally, and most importantly, the taxi tout issue: God knows how many people have been conned, hurt and embarrassed. What a shame since this is the first feel foreigners have when landing in Malaysia. Is KLIA management aka MAHB stupid or what? This issue has been persistent for the past 10 years now!!!


And please, let's also have some analysis in this thread instead of posting glorifying news links. We should be constructive and look at what should be bettered to have a world leading airport.

So, any pictures of the new arrival hall?

KLIA's tout-proofing almost done
Joseph Kaos Jr
Friday, June 12th, 2009 06:09:00



IN PLACE: Construction of glass walls at KLIA
to ward off touts is nearing completion


AT first glance, the proposed glass walls at the KL International Airport - aimed at stopping touts from harassing arriving passengers - could very well work.

A check yesterday by Malay Mail on the progress of the construction revealed one wall completed and the other wall - where a temporary barricade was in place - nearing completion. This already cordons off arriving passengers from touts.

Malaysia Airports Bhd (MAB) senior general manager Datuk Azmi Murad last month announced plans for eight-foot high glass walls to be built by the middle of this month.

From what is already in place, it is impossible for any tout to communicate with passengers in the arrival hall.

The only section where touts can attempt to make contact is near the terminal exit doors, where a metal barrier is currently in place.

This area is closely guarded by security officers. Of course, passengers will still be exposed to touts once they pass this barrier, but that won't happen if their transport arrangements have already been made.

Hence, MAB's plan to relocate all counters for taxis, limousines, travel agencies and hotels inside the arrival hall. This is to make sure passengers are already provided with transport options before even leaving the arrival hall.

Azmi said yesterday that the counters would be moved into the arrival hall once work on the walls was completed.

"There are 18 counters altogether," said Azmi. "Right now, we need to install things like electricity points, telephone lines and computers for the new counters.

"It will take some time, but I hope all this can be completed by mid-July."
