PM launches mega low-cost terminal project
By MAZWIN NIK ANIS Tuesday August 31, 2010
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...539&sec=nation



Landmark project: Najib signing a plaque at the ceremony in Sepang
yesterday. With him are (from right) Kong, Malaysia Airports Berhad managing
director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad and chairman Tan Sri Datuk Dr Aris Othman.


SEPANG: The opening of the world’s first mega terminal for low-cost carriers – to be known as KLIA2 – will mark the nation’s growth and leadership in aviation not only in this region but also the world, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

He said considering the exponential traffic growth in the low-cost sector, the Government had prioritised the immediate development of a terminal that would meet low-cost travel needs for the next 10 to 15 years.

The plan was a variation of the original KLIA Master Plan as low-cost travel and its extraordinary boom was not previously envisioned or anticipated.

“Fortunately, we were able to accommodate the low-cost carriers’ needs for the past few years at the current Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT),” Najib said at the project’s ground-breaking ceremony here yesterday.

“However, the time has come to revolutionise the airport terminal design for low-cost carriers and passengers in order to stay ahead of competition.”

The new low-cost carrier terminal is being built to handle 30 million passengers per year initially and has the flexibility to allow for expansion to cater for future growth and changes to the operational models of aircraft.

ocated 2km from the current Main Terminal building, KLIA2 will allow for easy inter-terminal transfer and better connectivity between the two.

The Prime Minister said KLIA2, targeted to be completed in April 2012, was expected to boost the nation’s tourism industry by attracting more airlines and visitors.

He added that the facility would increase tourism revenue from RM53bil last year to RM168bil in 2020.

In his opening speech, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the new LCCT would meet passengers’ expectations with built-in walkways, bigger space per passenger and total separation between arrival and departing passengers for improved security.

He added that the new terminal would have an integrated transport hub, connecting various modes of transportation such as taxis, buses and the Express Rail Link (ERL) service.

Kong said the aviation industry was undergoing a paradigm shift with the accelerating growth of low-cost carriers defining the future of air travel, especially in Asia.

Having watched the video, I understand why it's named KLIA2 and not KLIA LCCT.

WCT get concession for RM486m complex at LCCT
Written by Surin Murugiah Friday, 08 October 2010 17:56
http://www.theedgemalaysia.com/busin...x-at-lcct.html

KUALA LUMPUR: WCT BHD [] has secured a contract from Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) to develop the new low cost carrier terminal (KLIA2) integrated complex on build-operate-transfer concession.

WCT said on Friday, Oct 8 the concession is for 25 years and may be extended for a further 10 years upon expiry. The development of the complex would be undertaken by a special purpose vehicle (SPV) in which WCT and MAHB will hold 70:30 equity interest.

“The CONSTRUCTION [] cost of the integrated complex is estimated at approximately RM486 million which the SPV will finance partly via internally generated funds and partly by bank borrowings. The construction of the Integrated Complex is expected to be completed by June 30, 2012,” it said.

Under the concession, WCT via the SPV will undertake the design, procurement, engineering, construction, completion, and thereafter, the operation, management and maintenance of the complex for the duration of the concession.

“As KLIA2 will be a dedicated terminal for low-cost carriers and in view of the expected increase in demand for low cost air travel, the prospects of the SPV are expected to be positive,” said WCT.

Yeah I noticed that too

The strange thing though is the KLIA-1 Is underutilised, yet they are coming out with this terminal that has aerobridges depicted at each gate. Why not just build the 2nd KLIA-1 Satellite and utilise the main contact pier for domestic flights. It seems overkill to go and build such a palatial terminal for a LCC, especially when theres an underutilised existing terminal there ready to be filled and can be expanded.

Airport hotel wins prestigious award
Wednesday October 20, 2010
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...62&sec=central



Award-winning: The Pan Pacific KLIA took home
the Global Luxury Airport Hotel award.

PAN Pacific Kuala Lumpur International Airport added another feather to its cap when they were awarded the World Luxury Hotel Awards for the Global Luxury Airport Hotel title.

The winners for the 2010 World Luxury Hotel Awards were announced at a lavish gala ceremony in Thailand recently at the Dusit Thani Huan Hin hotel.

Selected by travel industry experts and professionals from different countries around the world, this award was a vote of confidence for the hotel’s world-class facilities and service excellence.

Established in 2006, the World Luxury Hotel Awards celebrate excellence in the luxury hotel sector.

The awards are recognised as the pinnacle of achievement for Luxury Hotels worldwide.

Pan Pac general manager Hans Winsnes expressed his pride on behalf of the hotel’s team for this recognition and said it could not have been done without the unwavering support received from the owners of the hotel, Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad.

“We wish to say a big ‘thank you’ to all who voted for us. We are indeed grateful for your high regards and confidence and we will continue to serve you with the utmost zeal and commitment,’’ he said, during the award presentation ceremony.

He said the success was due to the commitment of the staff as all of them had the vision of ‘creating memorable hotel experiences’ instilled in them.

Recently, Pan Pacific Hotels Group with the Global Hotel Alliance introduced their new Discovery guest programme which is not only recognising guests for their continued patronage, but also offers local experiences in the course of their stay, available for 12-member groups.

Pan Pacific KLIA, into its 13th year of operations, has also won many other awards.

The hotel was awarded the Best Airport Hotel in Asia by Business Asia Magazine for seven years, Asia & the World’s Leading Airport Hotel for 2008 and 2009 by World Travel Awards and the Brandlaureate Award 2007/08 and 2009/10 in the Best Brands in Airport Hotel category.

Have to disagree with you buddy, KLIA is an airport in the jungle...the 'jungle' has been there even before the airport was built, unlike Changi where the 'gardens' were erected to bring nature into the 'airport in the city'. KLIA sits in the midst of lush palm oil plantation. Changi is an awesome airport, don't get me wrong but it's more of a 'green' city airport. Even if KLIA copied Changi, I still think it's still cool..who gives a shit who copy who as long as they emulate and adopt cool ideas to make things better.

Aerotrain comes to a temporary halt
By CHARLES FERNANDEZ Friday October 22, 2010
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...21&sec=central

THE aerotrain service at the KL International Airport (KLIA) will be suspended for four-and-a-half months from Nov 1 and buses will be used to transport passengers during this period.

The trip between the main terminal building and satellite building will take 10 minutes.

On Wednesday, the Malaysian Airports Berhad (MAB) organised a trial run of its shuttle bus service between the two buildings from 8am to 4pm.

During the eight-hour trial run, 11,000 passengers were transported, involving 37 departures and 20 arrivals.



Hands on: Azmi (in white shirt) directing passengers at the satellite building.

MAB senior general manager (operation services) Datuk Azmi Murad said the objective was to provide Malaysia Airports and airlines at KLIA the opportunity to test the effectiveness of the shuttle service with actual passengers and to identify any areas that required fine-tuning before Nov 1.

He said the temporary service involving 16 buses would be rigorously tested to minimise inconvenience especially during peak hours and to ensure smooth and fast transfer of international passengers.

He said signboards had been put up to notify travellers and personnel would be on standby to guide passengers and ensure smooth operations.

“All airline operators have also been given recorded messages to play on flights to create awareness on the closure of the aerotrain service. The units are due for a complete overhaul as they have been operating for 12 years and clocked two million kilometres,’’ added Azmi.



This way please: Passengers departing from KLIA following the signages
leading them to the waiting buses that will take them to the satellite
building from the Contact Pier.


The shuttle bus lounge for departing passengers is located at the ground level of the Contact Pier, where the shuttle service will transfer passengers to Gate C11 to proceed to their boarding gates.

For arriving passengers, they will proceed to Gate C5 of the satellite building where the shuttle service will transport them to the Contact Pier for Immigration clearance and baggage reclamation.

“We want to ensure that the shuttle system is working effectively as we want passengers to continue enjoying the same level of service during this period,’’ said Azmi.

He said the closure was necessary to facilitate the KLIA Spurline expansion project, which involved modifiying the existing aerotrain fleet and commissioning an additional three-vehicle aerotrain.

The project will also enable the construction of a crossover switch between the two existing guide ways. The Spurline is a branch line from the existing guide-way connecting to the new Operation, Maintenance and Storage Facility (OMSF) building.

“The OMSF will serve as a permanent venue for scheduled maintenance work and also to house another train that will serve as a replacement during repairs or maintenance,’’ said Azmi.

Currently in the event of a breakdown, maintenance is undertaken at Satellite A terminal station, disabling the full operation of the aerotrain service.

“We need a third train in such circumstances. Now, there are two cars per train to ferry 160 passengers and once the project is completed, each of the trains will have three cars to ferry 240 passengers with the third train on standby,’’ said Azmi.

Ireka bids for new LCCT runway project
By June Ramlee Published: 2010/09/24
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...eka-2/Article/

CONSTRUCTION firm Ireka Corp Bhd (8834) has submitted a bid to Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd to build the runway for the new low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang, its top official said.

Group deputy managing director Datuk Lai Foot Kong said the proposal is in the midst of being short listed for the pre-approval stage.

"We are interested in the project and optimistic that our bid will go through," Lai told reporters after the company's shareholders meeting in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Besides the runway contract, he said, Ireka is also eyeing other packages under the LCCT project, namely utilities, which is yet to be opened for tender.
"We will bid for more tenders when they open as we have the knowledge and capability," Lai said.

Ireka's previous experience include building the runway for the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang.

The bid forms part of the company's strategy to actively tender for public and private sector projects to replenish its order book for the financial year ending 2011. This will include works at Iskandar Malaysia in Johor.

The company's current outstanding order book stands at about RM325 million for works that will be carried out mainly in Kuala Lumpur and Sabah.

Besides Malaysia, Ireka's construction division is also keen on infrastructure projects and construction opportunities in Vietnam.
