KLIA2 40% completed
By JEEVA ARULAMPALAM Friday July 29, 2011
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...&if_height=646



A model of the KLIA2.

SEPANG: Airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is more than 40% into the construction of KL International Airport 2 (KLIA2), its official said.

MAHB chief financial officer Faizal Mansor said that road works linking KLIA2 were underway and building structures were being put in place.

More details on the progress of the permanent low-cost carrier terminal would be announced soon, he told reporters yesterday at the company's second-quarter results briefing.

Faizal also said that the cost of development for KLIA2 remained at the estimated RM2bil “until an update was made otherwise” and it was working towards the October 2012 completion deadline.

For its second quarter ended June 30, MAHB posted a net profit of RM81.8mil against RM59.6mil posted a year earlier. Its revenue for the quarter grew 25% to RM654.23mil from RM525.01mil made one year ago, mainly due to recognition of construction revenue for KLIA2 and Penang International Airport.

As of this financial year, MAHB has adopted the IC interpretation 12: service concession agreements (IC12), an accounting treatment that recognises construction revenue from airports being built or upgraded. Construction revenue for the quarter and six-month period were RM182mil and RM337.1mil respectively, with 95% of the revenue coming from KLIA2.

Stripping out the construction revenue, the consolidated revenue for the three months ended June 30 was higher by 8.4% at RM472.2mil.

Revenue for the quarter under review improved owing to positive growth of 7.3% from airport operations, driven by an increase in non-aeronautical revenue of 14.9% which was mostly derived from the group's retail business.

Passenger movement was 6.8% higher than the corresponding period last year, in which the international and domestic passenger movements increased 2.6% and 11% respectively.

For the six months ended June 30, MAHB made a net profit of RM170.1mil compared with RM132.8mil from a year ago. Revenue was up 24% to RM1.26bil from RM1.02bil for the first half of its financial year ending Dec 31. Stripping out the construction revenue, the consolidated revenue for the six months ended June 30 was higher by 6.4% at RM927.5mil.

The group saw its airport operations business grow 5.4% as well as a 19.6% growth in the non-airport operations business. Positive growth in the airport operations was driven by a 16.3% improvement in the retail business.

Passenger movement for the six months under review were 12.6% higher than the year before, in which the growth for international passengers was 13.5% while domestic passenger growth was 11.8%.

While MAHB has forecasted passenger growth of some 8% to 9% for this year, Faizal said the airport operator may achieve double-digit growth in passenger movement.

“Another trend we used to see at KLIA and the low-cost carrier terminal was 60% of the passenger movement came from domestic flights while the balance was from international flights. But now, both domestic and international passengers account for 50% each, thus proving that KLIA is increasingly becoming an international hub,” he said.

MAHB expects another two to three new airlines to start flying into KLIA. Faizal added that with Malaysia Airlines now part of the Oneworld alliance, the airport operator had started talks with British Airways and Australia's Qantas Airways about both airlines possibly re-looking at flying into KLIA.

“That will help us make KLIA a stronger hub but we will leave it to the airlines to make the relevant announcements,” he said, when asked if the airlines had given a timeframe in wanting to resume flights to Kuala Lumpur.

MAHB in talks with BA and Qantas on using KLIA
By JEEVA ARULAMPALAM Tuesday August 16, 2011
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...&if_height=649

PETALING JAYA: Airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is still in talks with British Airways and Qantas Airways on the possibility of both airlines mounting flights to KL International Airport (KLIA), a decade after these airlines suspended flights to KLIA owing to a lack of network connectivity here.

“At the moment, discussions are still on-going,” MAHB chief financial officer Faizal Mansor told StarBiz yesterday via a text message.

Last month, Faizal told reporters that both airlines were considering the possibility of flying into KLIA, following Malaysia Airlines (MAS) joining the Oneworld alliance.

British Airways and Qantas had yet to respond to separate e-mails sent to them on the possibility of either resuming flights to KLIA.

While MAHB stands to benefit from new airline mounting flights to KLIA, a local aviation analyst said that British Airways flying to KLIA was not expected to hurt MAS and AirAsia X as it would have its own set of clientele.

“Government officials and government-related companies are required to use British Airways' services similar to what we see for MAS whereby government-linked companies and officials in Malaysia use MAS' services,” said the analyst.

He added that British Airways' customers would continue to use the airline's services due to loyalty and mileage programmes.

While British Airways would fly the London-KL route, analysts said Qantas was likely to start with the Sydney-KL route first.

Meanwhile, a foreign analyst said that market talk had it that British Airways, Qantas and MAS had formed an alliance within the Oneworld alliance, whereby the three airlines would cross-sell each other's tickets on their respective websites. This deal was said to be executed by former MAS managing director Tengku Datuk Seri Azmil Zahruddin.

“For instance, a British passenger who wants to fly from London to KL and subsequently to Penang, can do it seamlessly through this alliance basically British Airways will offer a ticket for the passenger to fly from London to Penang, utilising the MAS network. While a code-share is typically executed for a single route (point-to-point), this alliance between the three airlines builds on connectivity and network,” he said.

This alliance would allow Qantas and British Airways' passengers the opportunity to book flights to South-East Asian destinations via the MAS networks.

“With MAS, British Airways' passengers can access destinations such as Phuket, Surabaya, Bandung, Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. The Middle Eastern carriers don't fly to such destinations so it will be easier for these passengers to utilise MAS' network,” he said.

However, should there be such an alliance between the three airlines, it remains to be seen if it will be executed considering the latest reshuffle at MAS, where new board members were appointed and an executive committee put in place to oversee the running of MAS, while the hunt for a new managing director is under way.

Both British Airways and Qantas ceased flights from KLIA in 2001 and 2000 respectively, as the airlines said it made more commercial sense to redeploy capacity to where demand was much better served Singapore's Changi Airport.

Qantas axed flights to KLIA as it opted to use Singapore as its South-East Asia gateway while other international airlines said in order for KLIA to be a regional hub, it needed to compete more effectively with Singapore and win airlines at the expense of Changi. For instance, Qantas currently has two direct daily flights each from Melbourne to Singapore and Sydney to Singapore.

However, KLIA has increasingly grown as a regional hub in the last decade, with international passenger numbers increasing from 12.7 million in 2001 to 23.8 million international passengers last year. While KLIA has attracted more foreign airlines to mount flights to KLIA, part of KLIA's popularity is also due to low-cost carrier AirAsia group mounting flights to regional destinations.

Meanwhile, MAHB clarified in a media statement yesterday that passenger service charge (PSC) in Malaysia was not linked with the construction cost of airports or terminals built locally.

It cited the example that the PSC remained the same despite the relocation of airport operations from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang to the brand new KLIA in 1998.

“The PSC and other aeronautical charges are determined solely by the Government as enshrined in the Civil Aviation Act 1969. Therefore, it is the sole prerogative of the Government to reduce, maintain or increase aeronautical charges which MAHB abides by,” MAHB said, adding that it was not at liberty to revise aeronautical charges without the Government's approval.

Talks of revamp at MAHB fizzle out
By BK Sidhu Saturday August 20, 2011
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...&if_height=646



THERE has never been a dull moment for airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB). Just as the landmark collaboration between Malaysian Airlines (MAS) and AirAsia Bhd was revealed, it seemed sure that a massive board and management shake up was imminent at MAHB to drive the agenda of making Kuala Lumpur an aviation hub.

However, it seems there has been a change of heart. It is believed that Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad, who has been holding the reins at the airport operator since 2003 as managing director will remain until his term expires in June next year.

Speculation of a board and management revamp at MAHB was premised on the fact that its largest shareholder, Khazanah Nasional Bhd was keen to reshape the country's aviation industry to prepare it for the next phase of growth.

“There are a lot of movers and shakers.... the AirAsia/MAS tie-up is a significant merger and acquisition activity. What it means is that Malaysia wants to become the next aviation centre in Asia. It is certainly stirring up a lot of uneasiness among its peers,” says Standard & Poor's aviation analyst Shukor Yusof.

According to sources, there is no plan to rattle the status quo at MAHB at least for now.

MAHB has raised passenger service charges and aircraft landing and parking charges that should augur well for the airport operator but it is not favourabe with travellers who have to contend with rising prices of goods and services.

But there remains one major issue - the perceivedly-slow pace of development of the new low cost air terminal or KLIA2. Though the commercial opening date has been fixed for October 2012, there are doubts in the market place on whether the deadline will be met.

There's of course also the pressure from AirAsia boss Tan Sri Tony Fernandes for more low-cost carrier terminals to be built and for the completion of KLIA2 to be expedited.

The question is - would a revamp and infusion of new blood in MAHB allow it to respond faster to players like AirAsia which has time and again proven to bring in the traffic and tourist volume? And would it be able to further drive the Government's agenda to boost the tourism sector.

KLIA2 takes off
By OH ING YEEN Friday September 9, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...689&sec=nation

SEPANG: Passengers using the KLIA2, when it is completed next year, will walk across a 300m pedestrian bridge to get to the satellite building to catch their low-cost flights.

The skybridge, the first of its kind in Asia, is among the unique features of the country's new main low-cost airport that is being built at a cost of RM2.8bil.

Expected to be completed in about 13 months, KLIA2 will also have one of the country's largest shopping centres. With 70,000 sq m of shopping space, it may well be the biggest shopping area for an airport in the region.

KLIA2 is just 1.5km away from the main KLIA compared to the more than 11km distance between the main terminal and the present LCCT.

MAB: 34 million passengers at KLIA and LCCT by year-end
Published: Sunday September 11, 2011 MYT 5:10:00 PM
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...018&sec=nation

SEPANG: Thirty-four million foreign and local passengers are expected to use KL International Airport and the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) here by the end of this year, Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd general manager Muhammad Suhaimi Abd Mubin said.

He said the target was an increase from the 29 million passengers recorded at both airports last year. "It is estimated that 55% of the number would be recorded at KLIA, while the other 45% at LCCT," he told reporters after attending Malaysia Airports Berhad (MAB) Aidilfitri open house Sunday.

Muhammad Suhaimi also anticipated that international passengers would make up 70% of the 34 million-target.

Right now, 50 airline companies are operating in KLIA with 750 inbound and outbound flights recorded daily. BERNAMA
