Oman Air may increase KL-Muscat flights
By June RamleePublished: 2010/06/29
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz0s8TXFh1l


OMAN AIR, the national carrier of Oman, has started flying non-stop to Muscat, its capital city, from Kuala Lumpur four times a week since May 1 and may increase the frequency if demand stays strong.

Its chief executive officer Peter Hill said the new flights on the Kuala Lumpur-Muscat route will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

"We just introduced the flights last month and so far, the response have been very encouraging with some flights fully booked. With good response like this, in time we may even look at increasing the flight frequency to a daily operation," he told Business Times in an interview recently.

The idea of opening up a route to Kuala Lumpur came about after it was learnt that many Omanis were travelling to the city for tourism purposes, higher education, medical tourism and also for the Malaysian My Second Home programme.

"We want to increase the trade and tourism between the two countries. Malaysia is quite well-known in Oman and there is an increasing number of Omanis sending their children here for higher education. But among Malaysians, Oman is not a popular destination and we need to do a bit of work there," he said.

Malaysia was the second route for the carrier to operate from Southeast Asia after it started its Bangkok flights two years ago.

"We fly to 38 destinations now including Malaysia, which was introduced along with Ras Al Khaimah, Al Ain, Islamabad and Lahore.

"By the end of the year, we plan to fly to Katmandu, Nepal, Milan, Italy and Damman and Saudi Arabia. This will increase our flight destinations from 38 to 41 destinations altogether.

Hill said travellers can get value for their money by flying with Oman Air as the their configuration is generous and that their range of service had better value and more facilities. It is also the first airline in the world to have broadband and mobile phone coverage on air.

"Although our prices are about the same with other carries in the Gulf Cooperation Council, our economy class is actually what other carriers will call as premier economy," he added.

New LCCT to be ready by early 2012
Published: 2010/06/30

The new Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) in Sepang is expected to be completed by early 2012, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd's (MAHB) managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said.

He said the LCCT is taking longer to complete as construction is being undertaken on the basis of a tender exercise.

"Also, we are currently redoing the design, as the new building is much bigger than the original concept. So, all this has resulted in more time being taken for completion," he told a press conference after the KLIA's 12th anniversary celebration in Sepang today.

Bashir, however, declined to give more details on the project, saying further announcements would be made later.

Commenting on the celebration, MAHB chairman Tan Sri Aris Othman said KLIA has flourished to become one of world's best known airports in a space of just 12 years of its operations.

"In the first half of 2010 alone, KLIA managed to rope in three Middle Eastern airlines in Mahan Air, Oman Air and Royal Jordanian.

"Last year, the airport handled 29.6 million passengers, an increase of 7.8 per cent compared to previously," he added.

He also attributed the outstanding performance to all agencies at the KLIA.

The KLIA has this year bagged three awards, namely for Best Airport Immigration Service, Staff Service Excellence in the South East Asia category at the Skytrax 2010 World Airport Awards and as the Best Brand in Transportation from Brand Laureate 2009-2010. -- Bernama

If arriving and departing the KLIA LCCT, are there additional taxes or is it included in my ticket?

Has anyone flown AK/D7 ‘connection’? Ie. Do you go through immigration, collect baggage, and then go through immigration again?

there are no extra charges

i havn't done that connection specifically, but there is no integration of carriers: you'll need to go through immigration etc, and re-check in both for yourself and any luggage.

New LCCT to be bigger than planned
By Hamisah HamidPublished: 2010/07/01
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...30BIG/Article/

The new permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) that will be ready by March 2012, will be bigger than previously planned.

However, details of the revised cost, size and capacity of the new LCCT have yet to be announced by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB)(5014).

Managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said MAHB can only reveal the details when the tender exercise for the terminal is closed.

"Now, we are still doing the tender exercise," he told a news conference after the launch of the KL International Airport's (KLIA) 12th anniversary celebration in Sepang yesterday.

Also present were MAHB chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Osman and senior general manager (operations services) Datuk Azmi Murad.
The original cost of the new LCCT project was RM2 billion. The terminal is expected to cater to 30 million passengers per year, with potential capacity for 45 million passengers per year.

Bashir said the delay in the completion of the new LCCT building was due to the open tender process and the building design which had be to be re-done. The open tender exercise for the terminal has taken three months longer than expected.

"Secondly, the building that we are going to build right now is much bigger than the original building. Because of this, we have to do another design to cater to the larger building," he said.

Asked when the tender will be closed, he said: "It'll be soon."

To date, MAHB has awarded two contracts for the new 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.

On the development of the sukuk and bond to be issued by MAHB to fund the development of the new LCCT project, Bashir said the company will announce details of the fund-raising exercise later.

It was earlier reported that the airport operator plans to issue sukuk and bond with a combined value of RM2.5 billion. It was said that the pricing and tenure of the bonds will be determined during the roadshow, which was supposed to start sometime in the middle of June.

On whether MAHB and its partner GMR Infrastructure Ltd is bidding for more overseas airport projects, following the recently clinched Male International Airport contract in the Maldives, Bashir said, "Not at the moment".

Bashir also denied news reports that MAHB is part of a Malaysian consortium participating in the development of the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport in Pampanga province, the Philippines.

He said MAHB, together with Saudi Arabia companies, are currently bidding for the Madinah international airport.

Besides Male airport, MAHB, which operates 39 airports in Malaysia, has three other overseas airports in its portfolio.

On contribution from overseas airport projects, Bashir said returns can only be realised after the fourth or fifth year of operations.

"Normally, the concession period for airports is about 20 years, so normally the first three years is where you start investing money and the returns will come after the fourth or fifth year," he added.

UEM-Bina Puri JV wins RM997mil LCCT job
By IZWAN IDRIS Saturday July 17, 2010
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...4&sec=business

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has awarded a RM997.22mil contract for the main buildings at the proposed low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) to a joint venture between UEM Construction Sdn Bhd (UEMC) and Bina Puri Holdings Bhd.

UEMC is a unit of UEM Group Bhd.

The project is expected to take 20 months to complete, which means the new LCCT complex will only be ready in March 2012 if the builders stick to the schedule.

“It is a challenge for us to complete it within 20 months as the new LCCT is a fast-track project,” Bina Puri group managing director Tan Sri Tee Hock Seng said in a statement yesterday.

Bina Puri had accepted the letter of award from MAHB on July 16, the firm told Bursa Malaysia during the mid-day trading break yesterday.

Shares in Bina Puri surged 31 sen, or 28%, to close at RM1.42 on total volume of 4.98 million units. This was the stock’s best level in about six years.

Earlier this month, MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad was quoted as saying that the new LCCT was targeted for completion in early 2012 and would be bigger that originally planned.

He said the change in design for the terminal building as well as the open tender process meant that the actual award of contract had to be delayed.

The project was originally estimated at RM2bil for completion in late 2011.

The terminal building project is the third contract awarded by MAHB under the plan to move the existing LCCT to a permanent site located less than 2km from KL International Airport.

The portion awarded to the UEMC-Bina Puri joint venture is for the design, construction, commissioning and maintenance of the main terminal building, a satellite building, sky bridge and piers.

The first contract for the LCCT project was given to WCT Bhd in December last year for site preparation worth RM363mil. Gadang Bhd bagged a RM291mil contract in January to carry out earthworks for the runway.

“We are proud to be involved in this prestigious project together with a reputable partner, UEMC. This is the highest project value secured in one single contract for this year,” Tee said.

The statement, however, did not provide the shareholding structure in the joint venture.

With the award, Bina Puri’s current order book stands at RM2.7bil. The company has secured RM1.51bil worth of jobs so far this year.

Tee expected the LCCT project to contribute positively to Bina Puri’s earnings for the year ending Dec 31, 2010.

UEMC-Bina Puri JV secures contract for KLIA and new LCCT complex
July 17, 2010, Saturday
http://www.theborneopost.com/?p=49288



NEW PROJECT: An overview of the new LCC Terminal in Sepang, Selangor.

KUCHING: Bina Puri Holdings Bhd (Bina Puri) has received a letter of award from Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) through a joint venture (JV) with UEM Group Bhd’s subsidiary, UEM Construction Sdn Bhd (UEMC).

According to its press release, the UEMC – Bina Puri JV was awarded the contract worth RM997,227,000 involving the ‘Works Package: TB01 – the Design, Construction, Completion, Testing, Commissioning and Maintenance of Main Terminal Building, Satellite Building, Sky Bridge as well as the Piers for the proposed development of New LCC Terminal and associated works at KL International Airport (KLIA), Sepang, Selangor.

Bina Puri group managing director Senator Tan Sri Datuk Tee Hock Seng said, “We wish to express our utmost appreciation to MAHB for the award and trust given to the UEMC – Bina Puri JV. For Bina Puri, this is another achievement and recognition of our abilities, capabilities and the proven effort to contribute to nation building. We are proud to be involved in this prestigious project together with a reputable partner, UEMC.

“Nevertheless it is still a challenge for us to complete the project within 20 months as the new LCC Terminal is a fast track project,” he stated.

The new Low Cost Carrier (LCC) Terminal is located southwest to the existing Bunga Raya Complex which is 1.5 kilometres from KLIA with a building foot print of approximately 125,183 square metres. This LCC Terminal would be another new terminal within the vicinity of KLIA and would be primarily used by low-cost carrier airlines.

For the record, Bina Puri had completed several airport works projects since 1988, with the first project of the ‘Extension of Airport Runway and Electricity Installation for Upgrading the Runway and Associated Works at Subang International Airport, Kuala Lumpur; rehabilitation and resurfacing works on the runway, taxiways and parking aprons at Kota Kinabalu International Airport, Sabah and the Completion of Infrastructure works for Malaysia Airport Bhd at KLIA.’

With the new job in hand, the group’s current book order stands at RM2.7 billion to date. The contract was expected to contribute positively to the earnings of the Bina Puri group of companies for the financial year ending December 31, 2010.
