Budget for KLIA 2 increased
By Presenna Nambiar Published: 2010/10/30
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014) is ready to spend some RM500 million more than the earlier budgeted RM2 billion for total construction cost of Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA 2).

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had said in his second stimulus package announcement in March last year that the new permanent low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) would cost RM2 billion.

The airport operator said yesterday that its board of directors had mandated a sum of RM2.5 billion for the overall construction cost of KLIA 2.

MAHB chief financial officer Faizal Mansor, however, stressed that the RM2.5 billion budget was not final.

"While we will try to keep it below the budget, it is important to us to get the terminal completed well," he said at a briefing to announce the group's third quarter results in Sepang, Selangor.
While some big contracts have been dished out, Faizal declined to reveal how many more would be awarded.

KLIA 2 is now being planned to have double the initial size of 120,000 sq m.

While the new terminal is only half the size of KLIA's main terminal building, it is designed to have more than double the commercial space of the main terminal building.

After the recent completion of a retail optimisation plan at the KLIA main terminal building, about 7 per cent of the building is now commercial space compared to KLIA 2, which is expected to have about 20 per cent commercial space.

"What this means is that while the cost of running KLIA 2 will be half that of the main terminal building, it will be more viable, more sexy," Faizal said.

On its results for the third quarter ended September 30 2010, MAHB said net profit was down by almost 26 per cent. This was largely due to accounting losses it had to recognise in that period because of the adoption of the Financial Reporting Standard (FRS) 139.

MAHB made RM61.8 million net profit compared with RM83.4 million a year ago. The loss arising from adopting FRS 139 was about RM30 million.

Part of this loss came from recognising concessions payable at fair value for the Sabiha Gokcen International Airport in Istanbul, Turkey.

Year to date, the group recognised RM54 million accounting losses from the associate. MAHB has projected that the full-year figure will touch RM80 million.

Group operating profit in the period reviewed was up 12 per cent to RM128.3 million compared with RM114.4 million in the previous corresponding period.

No Aerotrain service at KLIA until March 15
By CHARLES FERNANDEZ Monday November 1, 2010
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...41&sec=central

The Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) Aerotrain service will be closed today until March 15 next year to allow for maintenance and modification work on the two trains.

The closure is necessary to facilitate the KLIA Spurline expansion project, modification of the existing lines and to allow the commissioning of one additional three-vehicle Aerotrain.

It 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, which is still under construction.



Temporary measure: The Aerotrain station at both the
Satellite Building and Contact Pier will be closed until March 15.


The new OMSF will facilitate the maintenance of the Aerotrains and accommodate overhaul work without any disruption to operations once completed.

It will also address the future needs of the train system, connecting Satellite A terminal to the planned Satellite B terminal.

KLIA will have a dedicated off-line Aerotrain maintenance and storage facility, enabling repair work on the Aerotrain to be performed without any interruption to the service.

Now, the maintenance is undertaken at the Satellite A terminal station.

During the shutdown period, shuttle buses will be stationed round the clock to ensure smooth transfer of passengers between the Satellite building and the Contact Pier.

Passengers will take 10 minutes to travel from one building to the other using the bus service compared with four minutes by Aerotrain.



Clear directions: Passengers heading to the Satellite Building following
directional signages to the waiting buses at the Contact Pier in KLIA.


The aerotrain has been in service for 12 years and clocked more than two million kilometres and it was time for a major overhaul.

KLIA has arranged 16 buses to ferry passengers from the main building to the satellite building and airport authorities have also stationed personnel to guide passengers to the shuttle bus lounge for departing passengers.

The bus lounge 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.

For more information, call 03-8776 9106 or visit www.klia.com.my.

ERL expects 8pc rise in ridership, aided by VIP service
By Azlan Abu Bakar Published: 2010/11/23
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New.../erel/Article/

EXPRESS Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL) expects to see ridership for its KLIA Express to increase by 8 per cent this year, backed by among others its new VIP chauffered service.

Chief executive officer Noormah Mohd Noor said although revenue contribution from the new service at present may be small, it is an important market for ERL.

"It would take some time to grow the segment as it is a very niche market for us," she said, noting that its target group included business travellers and hotel guests who require end-to-end services.

She said the company was working closely with hotels and travel agents to further promote the new VIP service.

The operator of the high-speed KLIA Express and KLIA Transit previously provided up to 30 limousine trips daily for the premium service to office and hotel guests.

With the expansion of the service to homeowners, it is targeting a growth of 50 per cent in trips to encourage ERL's ridership.

At present, ERL's market share of commuters to and fro the KL International Airport (KLIA) is about 15 per cent.

ERL is 50 per cent-owned by YTL Corp Bhd and 40 per cent-owned by Lembaga Tabung Haji. It provides daily rail services between Kuala Lumpur at KL Sentral and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Noormah said the growth target would also be supported by growth in passenger traffic volume at KLIA.

"Our ridership is very much dependent on the airport numbers. We are optimistic of achieving the target," she told Business Times in Kuala Lumpur recently.

She said last year, the whole aviation industry including the ERL services was badly affected due to the global economic crisis and the H1N1 epidemic.

"We hope to do better this year and see growth in tandem with the improved economic environment."

On its track expansion, Noormah said ERL had submitted its proposal to the government nearly one year ago and was still waiting for a firm approval from the government.

She said initially, the plan was to extend the tracks by another 10km to the existing low cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Sepang but as operations will be moved to the new LCCT called KLIA 2, the tracks will only need to be further extended by two kilometres.

She declined to reveal the investment cost of the expansion as it had yet to be finalised with the authorities.

"In order for us to complete the tracks in line with the completion of the new LCCT, we need the approval as soon as possible," she said, noting reports of the extension had been mentioned by ministers and Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd previously

KLIA2 to stress online check-in
By June Ramlee Published: 2010/11/26
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...rmass/Article/

THE new low-cost carrier terminal, or KLIA2, which will be operational by mid-2012, aims to gradually move away from traditional check-in and conduct more web-based check-in services.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said that although there are concerns that not everyone is able to access the Internet, the airports are looking at ways to make the change possible.

This includes the fact that people cannot go online as broadband penetration in the country and region is still low.

"We know that this is going to be an issue but the airports are looking into that," he told the media when met at the "Check-in Asia" conference in Sepang yesterday.

Bashir said currently the ratio between traditional counter check-in and online check-in is 70:30.

The same ratio will be maintained when KLIA2 is operational in mid-2012, but MAHB aims to gradually move the operations more towards online check-in.

"We can do a lot with the space that we have now. When the check-in counters are not there we can use the space for so many things. Already we have so many enquiries," he added.

Meanwhile, Malaysian Airline System Bhd (MAS) managing director and chief executive officer Tengku Datuk Azmil Zahruddin said the airline is looking at offering a variety of options besides traditional counter check-in servives, for its customers to have a seamless experience when flying with MAS, as well as to minimise waiting time at the airports.

"Currently, we have mobile check- in services, online check-in, kiosks and also IPAD, al-though it is not in sale in Malaysia yet," he said.

He also said MAS was looking at ways to use social networks such as Twitter and Facebook to enable their custo-mers to check in in the future.

"We haven't really figured out how this will work but we are looking at it and we are open to ideas," he said.

Azmil also said that MAS was looking at reinstating several new routes as it is now a profit-making company.

"We trimmed between 15 and 20 per cent of our routes, especially those non-profitable ones to Europe, but now we are reinstating slowly and focusing more on routes to Asia as this is where the growth is at the moment," he said.

KLIA2 to stress online check-in

THE new low-cost carrier terminal, or KLIA2, which will be operational by mid-2012, aims to gradually move away from traditional check-in and conduct more web-based check-in services.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said that although there are concerns that not everyone is able to access the Internet, the airports are looking at ways to make the change possible.

This includes the fact that people cannot go online as broadband penetration in the country and region is still low.

"We know that this is going to be an issue but the airports are looking into that," he told the media when met at the "Check-in Asia" conference in Sepang yesterday.

Bashir said currently the ratio between traditional counter check-in and online check-in is 70:30.

The same ratio will be maintained when KLIA2 is operational in mid-2012, but MAHB aims to gradually move the operations more towards online check-in.

"We can do a lot with the space that we have now. When the check-in counters are not there we can use the space for so many things. Already we have so many enquiries," he added.

Meanwhile, Malaysian Airline System Bhd (MAS) managing director and chief executive officer Tengku Datuk Azmil Zahruddin said the airline is looking at offering a variety of options besides traditional counter check-in servives, for its customers to have a seamless experience when flying with MAS, as well as to minimise waiting time at the airports.

"Currently, we have mobile check- in services, online check-in, kiosks and also IPAD, al-though it is not in sale in Malaysia yet," he said.

He also said MAS was looking at ways to use social networks such as Twitter and Facebook to enable their custo-mers to check in in the future.

"We haven't really figured out how this will work but we are looking at it and we are open to ideas," he said.

Azmil also said that MAS was looking at reinstating several new routes as it is now a profit-making company.

"We trimmed between 15 and 20 per cent of our routes, especially those non-profitable ones to Europe, but now we are reinstating slowly and focusing more on routes to Asia as this is where the growth is at the moment," he said.
