Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts spreads its wings in Malaysia



10 January 2011
Rapidly expanding Swiss chain to open Mövenpick Hotel & Convention Centre KLIA
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed a management agreement to operate the Mövenpick Hotel & Convention Centre KLIA, a 333-room upscale property, convention centre and wellness facility in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Set to open in early 2014, the hotel will be conveniently located a few minutes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the F1 Sepang International Circuit.

The upscale hotel will form part of a larger 15-acre development comprising a world-class Convention and Exhibition Centre and is ideally designed to host the increasing number of incentive groups, business and leisure travellers flying in and out of Kuala Lumpur.

Datuk Ismee Ismail, Group Managing Director and CEO of owning company Lembaga Tabung Haji, said: "We are extremely delighted about our new partnership with Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, as it enables us to combine our local expertise with a leading globally recognised brand."

"The project is coming up next to the Sepang Holy Mosque and will include an expansive Hajj Complex. We teamed up with Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts as it has extensive experience hosting pilgrims in the Middle East as well as meeting corporate travellers' needs all year round. We are proud to bring such a renowned hotel company to Malaysia and this reflects the confidence of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts to collaborate with Lembaga Tabung Haji."

The 26,000sqm Convention and Exhibition Centre will be an important business draw, featuring a 1,330sqm column free ballroom, exhibition hall, multi-function rooms and boardrooms.

Guests will have plenty of chance to unwind too, with the 250-seat all-day dining restaurant, two speciality restaurants and Lobby Lounge and Convention Centre cafe - along with the wellness centre, fitness facilities, two swimming pools and shops.

The 333 rooms will span nine floors with room sizes ranging from 30.5sqm for standard rooms, up to 203sqm for the Royal Suite.

The hotel's design will incorporate modern architectural elements with archways, courtyards and large atriums, intertwined with landscaped gardens and water features, and conform to sustainable build and operating practices in order to meet Green Globe standards.

Andreas Mattmüller, Chief Operating Officer for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East & Asia, said the property illustrates its commitment to the Asian market and in particular Malaysia, a key gateway destination for South-East Asia. "We are very excited about this landmark project, which will appeal to business, religious and leisure travellers."

Malaysia Airports Handled 34.3 Million Passengers At KLIA In 2010
http://www.bernama.com/bernama/v5/ne....php?id=556905

January 15, 2011 17:40 PM
SEPANG, Jan 15 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airports handled 34.3 million passengers last year at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), an increase of about 14.8 per cent from the 29.1 million passengers recorded in 2009.

Its senior general manager operations services Datuk Azmi Murad said, the growth was almost double from what the airport operator anticipated for the year, which was about eight per cent.

"We saw an increase in terms of frequency from airlines that are operating to KLIA, particularly from the Middle East," Azmi added.

He was speaking to reporters after receiving Garuda Indonesia's new Boeing 737-800 aircraft for its operations to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, here.

Azmi noted that Emirates, Qatar Airways and Etihad Airways had increased their frequency to Malaysia throughout last year.

At the same time, low cost carrier AirAsia and Air Asia X had also contributed to the strong growth.

"AirAsia X is connecting passengers from Australia to the Low Cost Terminal before transferring them to Europe," he explained.

On another note, Azmi said the improved global economic weather was also contributing to the growth in passengers at the KLIA.

KLIA in 2006 was ranked the 13th busiest airport in the world by international passenger traffic.

As for this year, he said Malaysia Airports was targeting about a seven per cent growth in passengers handling.

"This year, we already have one new airline, Firefly Jet. Today, the airline began operations from here with two flights to Kuching and Kota Kinabalu respectively.

"This is going to be quite positive for us. We expect to see a good number of passengers using Firefly," he added.

Commenting on Garuda Indonesia using the bigger Boeing 737-800 new geneation aircraft for its operations to Kuala Lumpur from today, Azmi said:"It is also going to contribute to the increase in passengers from the republic."

According to Malaysia Airports, it processed a total of 3,896,054 passengers from Indonesia last year, an increase of 7.3 per cent from 2009.

Meanwhile, Garuda Indonesia's vice president marketing, Don Jusuf Palito Bustan said, the new aircraft which would increase load capacity up to 40 per cent,would significantly multiply the number of passengers travelling on this high demand route.

"The market potential market is still open to us.We see the traffic as being good. That is why we are using the new aircraft," he added.

Don Jusuf also said that the Indonesian flagship carrier was preparing itself to leverage on Asean's Open Sky Policy, which comes into effect in 2015.

"We not only plan to increase the frequency but also the destinations such as from Jakarta to Penang or Medan to Kuala Lumpur," he added.

According to him, the people from Medan always flew to Penang to seek medical treatment using other airlines to get to the island.

Besides using the bigger aircraft, Garuda Indonesia is also increasing its frequency from Jakarta to twice daily -vice versa - from thrice a week, previously.

KLIA 2 slated to open in October 2012
By Maizatul Ranai Published: 2011/01/25
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html



The new permanent low-cost carrier (LCCT), dubbed "KLIA 2", is scheduled for operation in October next year.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the current LCCT in Sepang will be converted into a cargo terminal.

"Those low-cost carrier operators who are reluctant to move have to do it as we are converting the terminal for cargo movement," Kong said.

He said the KLIA 2 will be completed by next year.

"Work in the terminal and runways are so far progressing. We are expecting the terminal to be fully used latest by year-end of 2011," he added.

Kong said the new LCCT, which is sited on 243,000 sq m and 2km from the main Kuala Lumpur International Airport terminal, will be able to handle 30 million passengers a year. It can be expanded to up to 45 million passengers.

"A lot of people has complained that the current LCCT has become too overcrowded and congested. Last year alone, the terminal handled about 17 million passengers, beyond its capability of handling up to 15 million passengers," he said.

Kong was speaking to reporters at the handing-over of the Flight Inspection System by Systematic Aviation Services to the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, yesterday.

The mobile system, which can be installed in an aircraft to monitor the safety of aircraft traffic within the 22 air terminals in the country, can also be used in hangars or on runways.

He said the system, worth RM20.43 million, will increase the safety levels of civil fights.

He said a total of 820,000 aircraft movements were recorded by DCA traffic control towers nationwide last year.

Can someone please help with info regarding transferring between KLIA main terminal and the LCC terminal.
Have clients arriving in March, arrive around 06:00am from Johannesburg with MH, then depart 12:00 to Langkawi with AirAsia. Same after Langkawi they fly back with AirAsia to KUL and then on with MH to Phuket.
What is easiest way of moving between terminals, is there a airport train, bus, how much will it cost? For spending some time, maybe eating a little, what is the best terminal to spend most of the time at...ie have a nice breakfast at KLIA, hang around before changing to LCC terminal for check-in?
Thanks!
