Initial works on permanent LCCT to begin soon
Published: 2009/10/31



Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014), which manages all the airports in Malaysia, said initial works for the permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang will start next month.

"If everything goes well, site clearing works, like earthworks, will start next month," MAHB chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman told Malaysian journalists who are in Istanbul for the official opening of the new terminal at Istanbul Sabiha Gocken International Airport yesterday.

The company is also in the process of appointing consultants for the LCCT project - which is made up of more than 30 packages.

These packages comprise both air and land segments. The air segment involves the extension of the runway, taxiway and apron parking, while the land segment involves the construction of the terminal, hotel, as well as the shopping area.

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri, who also attended the press conference, said the tender for the construction of the new LCCT will be called as soon as the design is completed.

The new LCCT is expected to be completed by September 2011. The terminal, estimated to cost RM2 billion, will be built about 2km away from KLIA.

The terminal will be able to handle up to 30 million passengers a year, compared to the current capacity of about 10 million.

It will also involve the construction of a RM100 million 2km express rail link (ERL) connecting KLIA to the new terminal.

"With more regional low-cost airlines flying to Malaysia, I believe the new terminal will provide a very good aviation infrastructure and will bring in more tourists to Malaysia," he said.

SkyPark will revitalise Subang
Published: 2009/11/04

THE RM40 million facelift undertaken by the SkyPark Subang Terminal will turn the facility into not only a destination for travellers but also for the surrounding community.

"Ultimately, we envision SkyPark Subang as a major domestic and international transportation hub, served by major modes of transport and modelled to reflect contemporary lifestyle elements," its executive director Tan Sri Ravindran Menon said.

He said recently that SkyPark wanted to reinstate prominence to Subang as a global aviation hub.

Rejuvenation of the terminal in Subang is part of a three-year overall plan with three thrusts, the first of which was achieved with the launch of SkyPark Subang Terminal.

The second thrust will be to develop a regional aviation centre, a 30-acre development that includes maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities, dedicated hangarage and aviation-related industries while the third thrust will be construction of a leisure mall with an aviation theme.

The revitalised SkyPark Subang terminal at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Airport was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak last week.

Subang airport keeps ICAO-registered name
By Jeeva Arulampalam Published: 2009/11/14

THE Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah airport in Subang will retain its name although some components within the airport have been renamed, said airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB).

MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said the air site in Subang will continue to carry the name as it was officially registered with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

Several components within the airport previously known as Terminals 1, 2, and 3 have been renamed as part of an initiative to create an aerospace hub in Subang.

The world's largest independent supplier of commercial airplane assemblies and components, Spirit AeroSystems, has set up an aerospace manufacturing and design facility after taking over Terminal 1.

MAHB delivered the completed facility to Spirit AeroSystems in December 2008 under a sub-lease agreement worth RM425,000 yearly.

Terminal 3 was renamed SkyPark Subang Terminal after Subang SkyPark Sdn Bhd, which has a concession to run the commercial aspect of the airport.

The terminal was recently re-launched under the new name after Subang SkyPark spent some RM40 million to refurbish the interior and exterior of the terminal.

Bashir said that several proposals were currently being considered for Terminal 2, which houses an immigration office and was used as MAHB's headquarters up until a month ago.

"We are now deciding on what to do with Terminal 2. It will be one of the concepts under the MIAC (Malaysia International Aerospace Centre) development plans," Bashir said at a media briefing held at MAHB's new headquarters in KLIA, Sepang, yesterday.

"Interest from overseas companies now ranges between 10 and 15 companies. But, when big Tier-1 companies like Spirit AeroSystems come to Malaysia, their vendors will follow suit and they have no fewer than 100 (vendors)," said MAHB senior general manager of corporate planning Datuk Mahat Samah.

Also, the Malaysian Institute of Aviation Technology (MIAT) is expected to start building their campus facility by January next year on a 20ha site at MIAC.

As such, MAHB is also in talks with the Selangor state government to acquire another 130.38ha around the runway in order to facilitate maintenance, repair and operating supply (MRO) activities.

Mahat said MIAT's growth plans also hinged on the additional landbank as companies such as Spirit AeroSystems would require another 20 ha of land for expansion purposes.

MAHB wants land to expand: Ambitious development plans for Subang Jaya airport
Masami Mustaza
Friday, November 13th, 2009 07:20:00
http://www.mmail.com.my/content/1879...ts-land-expand



Bashir: Seeing interest from 10 to 15 companies

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is looking at acquiring 130ha of land around the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang Jaya for its expansion plans.

“As part of the airport’s development plans MAHB has brought in Malaysia International Aerospace Centre (MIAC) Sdn Bhd to develop six clusters within the airport grounds consisting of a maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) cluster for civil and military aircrafts, a helicopter centre, a general aviation centre, aerospace training centre, aerospace technology centre, and a commercial centre,”

MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad told reporters yesterday at MAHB’s new premises near the KL International Airport (KLIA) mosque in Sepang. “To develop these facilities, we need to acquire more land. We are currently talking with the Selangor State government about this.

“It’s an ambitious plan where MIAC is concerned and we hope to fulfill the government’s aspiration to become an aerospace global player by 2015,” he said.

Bashir said that its tenants, aviation companies such as Spirit AeroSystems and EADS Eurocopter have also talked about expanding.

“We are planning to invite firsttier aviation companies from all over to set base here. Now we already have 28 companies with us.

“We’re seeing interest from between 10 to 15 other companies. If they come on board, naturally their vendors will also, and so we need to have the space so they can all be grouped together,” he said.

Bashir said that the presence of big players in the aerospace industry would contribute to a transfer of technology as the aviation companies would require the employment of local technicians.

“MRO facilities around the world are increasing and I believe that the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport will grow in importance due to the facilities it has. It has one of the best general aviation facilities in Asia and I believe it will continue to prosper and become the centre for general aviation with high technology MRO facilities,” said Bashir.

The construction of training facilities and a campus for the Malaysian Institute of Aviation Technology (MIAT) is expected to begin in January, to be completed within a year or two. The development will encompass 50 acres of land.

MAHB has a land lease agreement for 60 years with the State Director of Land and Minerals and Geoscience Department (JKPTG) for 1,202 acres of land at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport of which, 713 acres are used for airport infrastructure, 195 acres for external infrastructure and 294 acres comprising land that can be let.

KLIA2 - Kuala Lumpur Low Cost Carrier Terminal

Initial works on permanent LCCT to begin soon
Published: 2009/10/31



Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014), which manages all the airports in Malaysia, said initial works for the permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang will start next month.

"If everything goes well, site clearing works, like earthworks, will start next month," MAHB chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman told Malaysian journalists who are in Istanbul for the official opening of the new terminal at Istanbul Sabiha Gocken International Airport yesterday.

The company is also in the process of appointing consultants for the LCCT project - which is made up of more than 30 packages.

These packages comprise both air and land segments. The air segment involves the extension of the runway, taxiway and apron parking, while the land segment involves the construction of the terminal, hotel, as well as the shopping area.

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri, who also attended the press conference, said the tender for the construction of the new LCCT will be called as soon as the design is completed.

The new LCCT is expected to be completed by September 2011. The terminal, estimated to cost RM2 billion, will be built about 2km away from KLIA.

The terminal will be able to handle up to 30 million passengers a year, compared to the current capacity of about 10 million.

It will also involve the construction of a RM100 million 2km express rail link (ERL) connecting KLIA to the new terminal.

"With more regional low-cost airlines flying to Malaysia, I believe the new terminal will provide a very good aviation infrastructure and will bring in more tourists to Malaysia," he said.

New LCCT To Be Ready By End Of 2011
Published: 2009/11/17

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 17 (Bernama) -- The building of a new Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) will be completed by the end of 2011 although its construction faced some delay, said Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri.

This was established at a weekly meeting between the project's management consultant and the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) on Nov 10, he said when replying to a supplementary question by Datuk Tajuddin Abdul Rahman (BN-Pasir Salak) in the Dewan Rakyat here Tuesday.

"The project's progress should be 15.5 per cent but right now it is 13.5 per cent. Based on the current status the delay is two per cent or 18 days," he said.

The delay was caused by the delay in approval by the Finance Ministry for certain packages besides delay in design and procurement for the control tower, said, Abdul Rahim.

In that regard, he said the ministry will monitor the progress of the project which was now in the design preparation stage.

When answering the original question by Datuk Ab Halim Ab Rahman (PAS-Pengkalan Chepa) as to whether the number of AirAsia passengers would be between 10 and 15 million by 2015 as well as the government's action to build or expand the LCCT, he said the new LCCT could handle up to 30 million passengers a year.

The government agreed to the project after we found the number of AirAsia passengers was rising and we estimated it can reach up to 15 million by 2015," he said.

LCCT plans unveiled
New LCCT will handle 45 million passengers yearly
By LESTER KONG

[IMG]http://www.**************/show/2009/03/14/01/35/2812641_350x272.jpg[/IMG]

PETALING JAYA: KL International Airport’s new Low Cost Carrier Terminal, located about 1.5km from the main terminal, will be able to handle 45 million passengers yearly.

A new 4km runway will also be built with the LCCT, which is expected to be operational in the third quarter of 2011.

Unveiling Malaysia Airports Holding Bhd’s (MAHB) plans for the new LCCT, its chief executive officer Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said work on the RM2bil project would begin in June.

“It will be designed to handle up to 45 million passengers a year and be connected to the main terminal via an extended Express Rail Link (ERL) and a new side road,” Bashir said at a press conference yesterday.

“With the new LCCT, KLIA would be able to handle up to 90 million passengers a year.”

The present LCCT would then be reverted into a cargo handling terminal.

The new LCCT, spread over 150,000 sq metres, would be larger than the main terminal with retail and food outlets to ensure passenger comfort.

There are plans for a 6,000-vehicle parking complex, parking bays for 70 planes and an integrated transport hub for buses and taxis.

“We are also taking the views of various airlines into account,” Bashir said, adding that AirAsia had requested at least 95,000 sq metres for the new LCCT.

Bashir said 10,000 sq metres of the space would go towards setting up AirAsia’s headquarters, which would be sited away from airport operation areas.

He said landing and aircraft parking fees and airport tax would most likely remain unchanged.

“The Government decides on all aeronautical charges and airport tax, not us,” he said, adding that MAHB would fund the project through loans.

“We have received letters of offers from several sources,” he said, adding that tenders would be called in the next few months.

Bashir added that KLIA’s master plan took into account long-term use of infrastructure and land to handle up to 120 million passengers annually. Currently, only 30% of the entire complex and land are used.

A joint proposal to build a new low cost carrier terminal in KLIA [email protected], Negri Sembilan, by Sime Darby and AirAsia was rejected.

Bashir said the plan to build the new LCCT near the main terminal was part of the National Airport Master Plan for Malaysia to strategically develop all 24 airports in the country over 50 years.

“This is to ensure KLIA will grow into a significant regional hub.”
