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.”

Plan for 2km tracks from KLIA to new low-cost terminal
Published: 2009/09/14



EXPRESS Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERLSB) plans to lay 2km of railway tracks from the KL International Airport (KLIA) to the new permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang to extend its rail services, its chief says.

ERLSB, majority controlled by YTL Corp Bhd, holds a 30-year concession to operate the KLIA Express and KLIA Transit rail services from KL Sentral in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, to KLIA.

Chief executive officer Noormah Mohd Noor said the extension of its rail services to the new permanent LCCT will boost passenger traffic by some 15 per cent to 4.2 million from 2011.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), the main contractor for the new permanent LCCT, is targeting to complete the construction by the third quarter of 2011 at a cost of RM2 billion.

"We are in talks with MAHB and have submitted a proposal to them a few months ago to extend the rail line. We are fine-tuning the plan and the cost to lay the tracks," Noormah told Business Times.

ERLSB has 12 electric high-speed train sets for the KLIA Express, which runs from KL Sentral to KLIA in 28 minutes, and KLIA Transit, which stops at Bandar Tasek Selatan, Putrajaya and Salak Tinggi before heading to the airport in 35 minutes.

The KLIA Express and KLIA Transit carry a combine 3.7 million passengers a year currently.

The new LCCT terminal, which will be located to the west of the main KLIA terminal building with a distance of 1.5km, will be able to accommodate 30 million passengers per annum, with capacity for expansion of up to 45 million passengers a year.

Noormah said the company will launch on September 15 a temporary bus shuttle service from Salak Tinggi to the existing LCCT to promote its KLIA Transit service, while the new permanent LCCT is under construction.

"We are doing this to capture the LCCT market, which will be a new growth area for us," she said.

Noormah also said that ERLSB is offering VIP services, group discounts and giving one complimentary trip for every 10 trips bought up front.

The company has tied up with Amadeus, the world's biggest processor of travel bookings with a 29.2 per cent market share, to help sell its KLIA Express tickets.

Cash incentive to fly into 2 airports, LCCT
By Jeeva Arulampalam Published: 2009/11/19



New airlines flying into three main airports in Malaysia will receive an incentive payment of RM10 for each inbound international passenger in their first year, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) said.

The airports are Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), LCCT-KLIA (the low-cost carrier terminal) and Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said at a media briefing yesterday to announce the airport operator's "Airline Recovery Programme".

New airlines stand to benefit from the payment scheme, which varies between other domestic airports managed by MAHB.

The overall programme, which runs for three years effective January 1 this year, comes after a series of talks with the government, airlines and the International Air Transport Association, said Bashir.

"This programme is an additional incentive to show our support for our airline partners through this recovery period," he said.

The payment will be made through credit notes after passenger numbers are compiled at the end of the year.

Existing airlines will get tiered incentive payments for inbound international passenger growth using last year's performance as base.

However, airlines can also opt to use 2009 as base year and benefit for only two years.

New airlines are considered existing airlines after their first year. At the end of 2011, MAHB will review the programme.

On top of this, existing airlines will continue to enjoy 50 per cent discount on all landings at all airports in the country from April 2009 to March 2011, as announced under the government's economic stimulus plan.

Bashir said MAHB's airline recovery programme will be funded by its commercial revenue, which has been rising. The plan will cost it as much as RM30 million.

Airlines contacted by Business Times lauded MAHB's move.

Malaysia Airlines managing director and chief financial officer Datuk Tengku Azmil Zahruddin said it was good that the airline could use 2009 as base year as it was starting to see traffic return to pre-economic crisis levels.

"The incentives are good: one translates into cash incentive and the other, cost-savings. Both will provide incentive for us to grow our passenger base and expand our network," he said.

Air France-KLM country manager for Malaysia, Estee Ng, also liked MAHB's cash-back programme.

"This business-friendly partnership, in which MAHB works on such programmes during one of the toughest operating times, is truly a testament that it views the airlines as true partners not just in good times but also in bad times," said Ng.

While Ng voiced hopes that MAHB would consider extending the 50 per cent discount on landing charges, Tengku Azmil said it would be good if MAHB allowed airlines to pay their landing charges against their minimum landing weight, instead of the current practice of charging airlines on their take-off weight.

Gadang bidding for projects worth over RM2b
By Zurinna Raja Adam Published: 2009/11/20

GADANG Holdings Bhd (9261), a construction and property development firm, is bidding for more than RM2 billion worth of projects in the country, which include works for the new low-cost carrier terminal in Sepang and the gas-fired power plant in Kimanis, Sabah.

The bidding period for both projects will close by next month.

"With the company's past track record and strength in this field, we hope to secure some works from the projects we have bid for," managing director Tan Sri Kok Onn said after the group's annual general meeting in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

On its water business project in Indonesia, Kok said revenue is expected to rise by 50 per cent for the current fiscal year ending May 31 2010, from RM11.4 million a year ago.

In the next three to five years, Gadang will see water business contribute RM40 million to its revenue once the expansion plans come into place. "We are eyeing Vietnam and China next to expand our water business," Kok said.

The group's property business stands at a gross development value of RM630 million, which will keep it busy for the next five years.

For the financial period ended May 31 2009, Gadang posted a net profit of RM9.7 million on revenue of RM247 million. Net profit fell by 15 per cent compared with the same period a year ago.

rainforest in the Kuala Lumpur International Airport @ Satellite terminal!

A walk in the park
Tuesday November 24, 2009
By ALLAN KOAY



Unique landscape: The rainforest in the Kuala Lumpur International Airport is
a one-of-a-kind feature, and passengers at KLIA will soon have the chance
to take a walk through the glass enclosure and experience the forest up close.


Quote:
Stop and smell the rainforest before you fly off.
The Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang is the only airport in the world that features a rainforest within its premises. Beautiful and unique as it is, all passengers at the airport can do is look at it from the outside of the glass enclosure. What’s more, the rainforest centrepiece is actually a hindrance and an obstacle to the commercial aspect of the airport.

But all that is about to change. Four years ago, a journalist from the BBC visited the airport and was intrigued by the sight of a rainforest inside the building. He then asked to be allowed to enter the rainforest, but was denied entry.

Umar Bustamam, CEO of Eraman Malaysia, remembered: “At the time, I was in charge of corporate services. I told him he couldn’t go inside because it was closed to the public. But he insisted that he wanted to see the inside because he thought it was beautiful.

“We managed to get him inside by entering from the basement. Once he was in there, he was really amazed. He told us: ‘You have such a beautiful forest inside the airport which no other airport in the world has. Why don’t you open it up?’ I thought he was right,” said Umar.



Broad spectrum: Umar Bustamam, CEO of Eraman Malaysia, on the brand new
viewing gallery that offers a view from the top of the rainforest and also an
all-round view of all the zones in the satellite building.

MAHB looks to commercial activities to sustain growth
Published: 2009/11/26



MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (3786) said it will continue to depend on increasing revenue from its commercial activities, although overall passenger movements have grown.

Managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said the group is relying on its Retail Optimisation Programme (ROP) to ensure that its overall revenue growth is sustained.

Efforts on ROP at both the low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) and the KL International Airport's main terminal in Sepang so far have contributed to a double-digit growth increase in its commercial revenue, comprising of rental, advertising, retail, food and beverage activities.

With the expansion of the LCCT from 10 million passengers per annum (mppa) to 15 mppa in March this year and completion of the ROP at KLIA's satellite building and contact pier, MAHB expects a much higher contribution from its retail and rental business from now onwards.
"We remain optimistic that the group's Headline Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) will be achieved ... with our improving financial position, we are able to continue and maybe even enhance our dividend payouts as well," said Bashir in a statement yesterday.

MAHB's pre-tax profit in the third quarter ended September 30 2009 was 17.1 per cent lower at RM111.2 million against RM134.2 million a year earlier.

This was despite revenue in the July-September period growing to RM377.4 million from RM364.5 million a year ago, mainly due to the growth in airport operations arising from a 20 per cent growth in total passenger movements.

"The passenger growth was mainly from the newly-expanded LCCT where the passenger service charges are much lower as compared to the main terminal resulting in a much lower than expected revenue," MAHB said.
