Mahan Air Makes Maiden Flight To KLIA
January 28, 2010 14:22 PM



SEPANG, Jan 29 (Bernama) -- Iran's second largest airline, Mahan Air, made its maiden landing at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) Thursday.

Its area manager (Far East & Dubai), Majid Kargaran, said the plane touched down at 10.37am after an eight-hour flight from Shiraz, Iran.

Majid said the airline offered twice weekly flights from Shiraz to Kuala Lumpur and vice-versa on Thursdays and Mondays, using the A310-300 which has a seating capacity of 196.

"It is a tremendous day for us and we hope to increase the frequencies to three to four flights a week," he said.

The inclusion of Mahan Air will see the number of West Asian airlines serving KLIA increase to nine, offering 64 flights weekly to various capital cities.

Currently, the other West Asian airlines flying to KLIA are Iran Air, Emirates, Gulf Air, Saudi Arabian Airline, Etihad, Qatar Airways, Kuwait Airways and Yemenia Yemen Airways.

'More airlines to fly into KLIA'
Published: 2010/01/29

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014) expects another three to four new airlines, particularly from Asia, to fly into KL International Airport (KLIA) this year.

Senior general manager of operations, Datuk Azmi Murad, said the airport operator had received a lot of enquiries from airlines to fly into Malaysia.

"We have also approached other airlines to come here and look forward to see more new airlines after Iran-based Mahan Air in 2010," he told reporters on the sidelines after the inaugural flight of Mahan Air in Sepang yesterday.

He said Mahan Air's presence would increase the connectivity at KLIA, particularly to Middle East.
Mahan Air, the second largest airline in Iran, made its maiden flight to KLIA yesterday, bringing the number of airlines into KLIA to 59.

Azmi said MAHB was confident of attracting more airlines to fly here. "We expect to see the current airline operators increase their flight frequencies and add new destinations through KLIA," he said.

MAHB targets passenger volume to grow by five per cent this year from 29.6 million passengers recorded in 2009. - Bernama

There are some impressive specials available on this flight. Trying to muscle out MAS and Air Asia?

WCT, Gamuda may get runaway job: OSK
Published: 2010/02/09

OSK Research House sees WCT Bhd (WCT) and Gamuda Bhd as potential candidates for the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) runaway portion project amounting to RM300 million to RM400 million.

OSK was commenting on rumours that past winners of the LCCT packages will not be eligible for its subsequent awards.

"WCT and Gadang have both been awarded earthworks packages. We think this rumour is baseless as it would make little sense to disqualify past winners if they can submit the lowest tender price.

"This is especially so given that the LCCT is privately funded," it said in a statement today.

Yesterday, Cebarco-WCT Joint Venture received an award for Fit-Out works at the Bahrain City Centre worth RM467 million to build Abu Dhabi's F1 circuit.

This award represents an additional RM221 million from the initial Letter of Intent (LOI) of RM246 million in August 2007. -- BERNAMA

MAHB shortlists 5 firms
By Sharen Kaur Published: 2010/02/25

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014) has shortlisted five companies to build the main terminal building and satellite tower for the new RM2 billion low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang.

Business Times understands that the UEM-Bina Puri joint venture, Sunway Construction Sdn Bhd, the privately-held AHT Norlan-Carriage joint venture, IJM Corp Bhd and the Gadang Holdings-PPC joint venture are the frontrunners to win the tender.

An MAHB official, who declined to be named, said the five were selected because they had offered the lowest prices for the project and said they could complete the job in 20 months, as outlined by the airport operator.

The new LCCT is slated for completion by the third quarter of next year. However, rumours are swirling that it may be delayed by six to 12 months.

"The tender process took a longer time (than expected). MAHB had pre-qualified many companies and then invited some on a selective basis to tender," the official said.
MAHB is evaluating the design and technical aspect of the proposals submitted by the five bidders and will select the best for each building, he added.

The official also said that the successful bidders would have to finish the job within schedule.

"MAHB may award the contracts for both buildings in the next one to two months and the two companies are expected to start work immediately."

MAHB received bids from 11 companies for the main terminal building job and nine for the satellite tower.

It is learnt that other bidders included Muhibbah Engineering (M) Bhd, Putra Perdana Development Sdn Bhd, Zelan Bhd, Fajarbaru Builder Group Bhd, Maju Holdings Sdn Bhd and the Ikhasas-Saidina joint venture, but they were disqualified on technical grounds.

The price for the job was between RM750 million and RM850 million for the main terminal building, and around RM400 million to RM500 million for the satellite tower.

To date, MAHB has awarded two contracts for the LCCT project.

The first, worth RM362 million, was given to WCT Bhd in December last year for works that include site preparation, earthworks and main drainage. A month later, MAHB awarded a RM291 million contract to Gadang to build the 4km Runway 3 and taxiways.

The new LCCT will be 1.5km away from the KL International Airport (KLIA) compared with 20km for the existing LCCT. It will be linked to KLIA's main terminal building via the Express Rail Link.

The new LCCT will cater for 30 million passengers a year, with potential to expand its capacity to handle 45 million.

MAHB to raise up to RM2.5b to fund new LCCT
By Presenna Nambiar Published: 2010/02/25

A rights issue is unlikely as it will see Khazanah Nasional Bhd increasing its share in the company, says Malaysia Airports

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) plans to raise between RM2 billion and RM2.5 billion by the first half of the year, mainly to fund the development of the new low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang.

"A rights issue is unlikely, as it will see Khazanah Nasional Bhd increasing its share in the company, which goes against recent calls for it to reduce its stake in government-linked companies. However as the ultimate aim is to raise cash, we are looking at all options at this point of time," the airport operator's chief financial officer Faizal Mansor said on ways to raise the money.

He was speaking after the group's announcement of its 2009 fourth-quarter results in Sepang yesterday.

MAHB's fourth quarter net profit more than doubled for the period ended December 31 2009, helped by a writeback of provision for doubtful debts of RM32 million and higher revenue, thanks to better passenger numbers and performance in its retail division.

It posted a net profit of RM140.6 million, from RM63.1 million for the same period in 2008.

Full-year 2009 profit was 27 per cent higher at RM379.2 million against RM298.9 million a year ago.

"The significant improvement through the year reflects the early signs of recovery in the aviation industry led by gradual restoration of consumer sentiments with total passenger volume growth of 8.2 per cent," MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said in a statement.

Total passenger volume hit 51.34 million passengers in 2009.

Aeronautical revenue grew by 21 per cent for the year, while non-aeronautical revenue such as food, beverage and retail grew by almost 13 per cent.

"Moving forward, we expect the non-aeronautical business to outperform the aeronautical business in line with MAHB's long term objective to grow this branch of our business," Bashir added.

MAHB's retail business grew by 15.3 per cent to RM352 million, mainly due to higher retail and food and beverage income as a result of the rise in passenger volume.

"We are optimistic that we will do better in 2010, especially on the retail business, as we will feel the full impact of the retail optimisation plan this year," Faizal said.

M’sia can adopt ‘AirportCities’ concept of Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport: Mustapa
March 10, 2010, Wednesday

AMSTERDAM: Malaysia can adopt the ‘AirportCities’ concept developed by the Schiphol Group, operator of the Schiphol International Air-port, here, at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang, says International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed.

They have a very comprehensive business model that can provide jobs to some 70,000 people.

“In the context of our country, we want to create high-paying jobs and business opportunities in the aviation sector, logistics and related services,” he told Bernama after visiting the airport.

Both the operators of Schiphol International Airport and KLIA have met to discuss the ‘AirportCities’ concept, said the minister who is on a trade and investment mission to three European cities, namely Amsterdam, Hamburg and Birmingham.

“I hope a comprehensive model can be implemented at KLIA to provide more jobs to Malaysians. This depends on our ability to woo local and foreign investors to create business opportunities around the airport.

“Anywhere in the world, airports will bring radical changes to surrounding areas. We’ve seen the sprouting of auxiliary and support services at KLIA.

“I hope close collaboration between the two airport operators will help hatch a practical model that can be adopted at KLIA,” he said.

The Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, the biggest airport in Europe, provides a dynamic surrounding, with a commercial arena to multinational companies, hotel facilities, logistics services and other related services.

Mustapa is heading a 50-member Malaysian delegation to three European countries on a eight-day trade and investment mission beginning Saturday.

The Netherlands is the first stop followed by Germany and the United Kingdom.

The delegation comprises 17 senior state government officials; Northern Corridor Implementation Authority (NCIA); 13 private sector representatives; officials from the Malaysian Industrial Development Authority (MIDA); and Malaysian External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade). — Bernama
