Whats the difference between the "premium" teriminal and low cost teriminal in terms of facilities once this is complete?

Why bother keeping them separate if they offer a similar service?

Will this terminal increase costs for the low costs airlines?

AirAsia gets new terminal
AFP

Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia said on Monday it would move to a new low-cost terminal at Kuala Lumpur's international airport by March 2012, a year later than planned.

But AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes said he was 'thrilled' with an agreement struck with Malaysia's airport authorities after a long-running battle over the design and facilities. 'We are very happy with the design, it has taken in a lot of our input,' Mr Fernandes told reporters. 'We think that with this, a large part of our battle to make Malaysia the biggest hub of Asia is over.' AirAsia, which was launched in 2001 with just two planes, is now the region's fourth-biggest carrier with 25 million passengers a year. Mr Fernandes said the current low-cost carrier terminal, which opened in 2006, had a capacity to handle 15 million passengers annually while the new terminal would have a capacity of 30 million.

As part of the agreement with operators Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad there will be parking bays for 76 aircraft and AirAsia's headquarters will be located next to the terminal building.

Mr Fernandes said the carrier also planned to introduce flights this year to the Maldives, where his Tune Hotel business has been invited to build six budget hotels.

Bina Puri hopes to be awarded LCCT job soon
By Sharen KaurPublished: 2010/05/06

The construction group has bid for the RM1.1 billion package to build the main terminal and satellite building in a 40:60 joint venture with UEM Group
Bina Puri Holdings Bhd (5932) hopes to get the letter of award to build the main terminal and satellite building of the new permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang, Selangor, this month

The construction group had bid for the RM1.1 billion package in a 40:60 joint venture with UEM Group.

"We have done a lot of site preparation and believe we can finish construction in 17 months," Bina Puri group managing director Tan Sri Tee Hock Seng said after its shareholder meeting in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) had shortlisted five companies, including a tie-up between Sunway Construction Sdn Bhd and privately-held AHT Norlan-Carriage, IJM Corp Bhd and the Gadang Holdings-PPC joint venture, for the contracts.
To date, MAHB has awarded two contracts for the LCCT project.

The first, worth RM362 million, was given to WCT Bhd last December for site preparation, earthworks and main drainage. In January, a RM291 million contract was awarded to Gadang Bhd to carry out earthworks for the runway and taxiways.

Bina Puri also submitted a bid last month to build a RM150 million hotel on 2.4ha next to the LCCT. It is partnering Brem Holdings Bhd and Crystal Crown Hotels & Resorts in the bid.

The new LCCT will be 1.5km away from the KL International Airport compared with 20km for the existing LCCT.

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.
New LCCT ERL track under discussion — Ong
May 7, 2010, Friday
http://www.theborneopost.com/?p=28429



UNDER DISCUSSION: Ong appearing on Bernama TV’s Hello Malaysia
programme at Wisma Bernama Wednesday night. — Bernama photo


KUALA LUMPUR: The government and Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL) are currently discussing the ERL extension track linking the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and the new Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT), says Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat.

He said a number of problem areas identified by the ERL operator had been brought to the attention of the National Key Result Area (NKRA) task force responsible for urban public transportation for deliberation.

“We want to upgrade public transportation service, particularly in two areas here, namely the railway service and air rail link,” he told a press conference after visiting the ERL Sdn Bhd office and ERL depot in Salak Tinggi yesterday.

Ong said various aspects including the financial implications, overall operation and technicalities, needed to be studied before carrying out the ERL extension project.

Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd (MAHB) will begin construction of the new RM2 billion LCCT in the middle of the year and it is expected to be ready in 2011.

It will be built on a 150,000 sq metre site, about 1.5km away from the KLIA main terminal.

Ong said he was proud of ERL Sdn Bhd for maintaining its punctuality record in its rail service at 99.7 per cent since it began operating six years ago.

“We want to make sure that this kind of culture will be emulated by others, not only in rail service but also in other public transportation services.”

Meanwhile, he urged airlines not to dispute over the flight paths and to leave the matter to the government.

“I think this kind of dispute should be avoided. What should be our main target is improving the quality of our services, and to me the biggest challenge in providing public air service is on-time performance.

“Airlines should stay focused on enhancing their level of on-time performance … the quality of service. If we can do that, we go a step higher in service excellence,” he said. — Bernama

Actually the current LCCT is just across the main terminal, however between them is a taxi way and the satellite terminal. The 20kms distance is traveling from the main terminal to the LCCT by car or bus. Since you need to go around the runway and KLIA is a huge facility...

I don't think so, bro. I used to travel by the Air Asia Skybus several times last year. If you come from the city towards the Main Terminal, you just need to turn right at the roundabout and driving at the edge of one of the runway. There you'll find the site of the new LCCT, approximately less than 2 km. And if you turn left and circling the whole complex, I don't believe it would reach 20 km as well to reach the site.

EU to allow liquid bought at KLIA
Tuesday May 25, 2010

PETALING JAYA: All liquid, gels and aerosols (LAGs) items in security tamper evident bags (STEBs) bought from KL International Airport (KLIA) will be accepted in European Union (EU) countries beginning today.

“This arrangement means all passengers bound for EU countries can now purchase LAGs at KLIA without any worries,” said Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) in a press statement yesterday.

The items purchased at KLIA must be packed in approved bags with the receipt displayed properly inside the bag as proof of purchase at KLIA within the preceding 36 hours.

The statement added that MAHB and the Malaysian Department of Civil Aviation held talks with the EU and successfully resolved the matter after EU’s security audit findings of KLIA last year proved the implementation of LAGs ruling in KLIA was satisfactory,

Previously, LAGs purchased at Ma laysian airports were not allowed in EU countries due to the differences in packaging and receipts.

The ruling on LAGs was implemented after a terrorist attempted to blow up an aircraft bound for the United States from London using a liquid bomb on Aug 9, 2006.

MAHB Eyes Two More Airlines
June 02, 2010 21:20 PM

SEPANG, June 2 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd expects two more airlines from the region to fly into the KL International Airport (KLIA) this year, says Managing Director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad.

"We are currently in talks with a few airlines and hope to finalise two before year-end," he told reporters at a welcoming reception for the Royal Jordanian Airline which resumed its services to Kuala Lumpur Wednesday after a seven-year hiatus.

The Royal Jordanian's flight arrived at the KLIA at 7.30pm on a routing via Bangkok, Thailand.

The airline ceased its operations to Kuala Lumpur in 2003.

It is the third Middle Eastern airline that MAHB managed to secure this year after Oman Air and Mahan Air.

Royal Jordanian will fly to Malaysia three times a week with flights scheduled for Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with a stopover in Bangkok on its latest Airbus 330.

"We look forward to their success on this route and hope that the airline will be offering direct flights between Amman and Kuala Lumpur very soon," Bashir said.

The airline's chief executive officer Hussein Dabbas meanwhile said the decision to reconnect route to Malaysia was due to the positive growth in the country, which is considered a gateway to Southeast Asia.

Dabbas said Jordan was a stopover destination for Malaysian passengers travelling to the holy places in Mecca and Medina.

MAHB evaluating proposals
By Presenna Nambiar Published: 2010/06/14

Two tenders have been called out, one for the development of an integrated complex and the other for an hotel adjacent to the upcoming permanent LCCT in Sepang

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014) is evaluating proposals for a 20-hectare commercial development adjacent to the upcoming permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang, which will feature an integrated complex and a three-star hotel.

Two tenders have been called out, one for the development of the integrated complex, which includes two car parks, a transportation hub that will eventually house the extended express rail link and a landside mall. The other tender is for the hotel.

The request for proposal period closed in April this year.

"The core proposition is not the landside mall, but the transportation hub. The mall and hotel are actually leveraging the population that is going to pass through it, such as the passengers, the meet and greeters, and even MAHB staff," MAHB senior general manager commercial Faizah Khairuddin told Business Times recently.
The development will be done on a build, operate and transfer model.

"We (MAHB) are also a stakeholder, wherein we will be driving the concept of the development to ensure that it will be a seamless experience between the mall and the retail space within the airport," Faizah said.

The mall will have 100,000 sq m of retail space, while the new LCCT is expected to have about 40,000 sq m of retail space.

This is about quadruple of the percentage of retail space which is available in the main terminal building (MTB) of the KL International Airport now.

Retail space will make up 20 per cent of total space in the new LCCT, compared with only 5 per cent of total space in MTB.

"The new permanent LCCT will be the test bed. For the first time, a terminal will be commercially driven. We have been involved from the planning stage, to make sure that the layout and design of the terminal is suited for the leisure market.

"I'm sure there will be room for improvement. The test will be in the execution," Faizah said.
