KLIA2 concessionaire awards by July
By LEONG HUNG YEE Monday February 6, 2012
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...3&sec=business



Faizah: ‘It is a very unique concept.’

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) will be awarding the concessionaires for 225 outlets at KLIA2 by July this year for a scheduled opening in April 2013, according to senior general manager commercial services Faizah Khairuddin.

“We are currently accepting tenders for 27 outlets until Jan 26. We're doing it zone by zone and we will award by July this year because everything has to be ready for opening by April 2013. Some 500 people have expressed interest to operate at KLIA2,” Faizah told StarBiz.

Of the 225 outlets, 118 lots have been allocated for retail offerings, 81 lots for food and beverages (F&B) and 26 lots for services.

Faizah said MAHB received overwhelming response from interested parties for space at KLIA2 when it conducted a brand preview presentation for KLIA2 last month.

“We received very good response at our KLIA2 brand preview and had to limit the number of participants to 800 because the room could not accommodate more people,” she said, adding that the tender would be done in an open and transparent manner.

Faizah explained that MAHB already had an idea of what range of shops it wanted to operate at KLIA2, for example coffee-based products in certain areas. She said MAHB had set up a website (www.klia2retail.com.my) to provide all the details needed for tenderers to forecast their respective business plans.

Faizah said that apart from the airside retail outlets at KLIA2, MAHB was also working on the details for a landside mall in front of KLIA2. However, the landside mall will not be a duty-free one. She said the mall would be an integrated complex where it would be a point of convergence.

Airports are divided into landside and airside areas where the former is basically the area before immigration while the latter is the area after immigration.

“We will anchor it with retail offering. It is very a unique concept ... not just an airport. We will have both airside and landside malls for passengers,” she said.

Faizah said the landside mall would have contemporary duplexes retail offering and it would be good for its concessionaires. She said the ground floor of the outlet could be a bookstore and there would be a cafe.

“We are maximising space as part of our plan to drive our non-aeronautical revenue. KLIA2 is commercially driven,” she said.

MAHB no longer just rents out space but also supports and increases the vibrancy of its airport for concessionaires.

“Under our Runway to Success business plan, we target revenue to hit RM3bil by 2014, of which RM2bil will be contributed by non-aeronautical while the balance of RM1bil will be from aeronautical.

“Currently, non-aeronautical revenue is about 55% with the balance 45% from aeronautical,” Faizah said.

She said that in a traditional airport model, non-aeronautical revenue accounted for about 30%, with 70% from aeronautical. “We want to reverse the equation.”

Growing its commercial services such as rental of space, car park and airside transit hotel is one of the ways for MAHB to increase its non-aeronatical revenue, which has been growing in recent years.

In the financial year ended Dec 31, 2003 (FY03), MAHB's non-aeronautical revenue stood at RM486mil but it has since grown significantly to RM842mil in FY10.

According to the KLIA Aeropolis Master Plan, MAHB has identified 2,730 acres out of a total of 22,156 acres in KLIA for commercial development.

MAHB also targets to achieve RM185.5mil in property development revenue by 2014.

KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia Bhd and Malaysia Airlines (MAS) are discussing various issues for collaboration that could see the former utilising MAS maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services to make Malaysia the region's premier aircraft servicing hub.

AirAsia group CEO Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said if that happened, a mega MRO between MAS and AirAsia could challenge Singapore's MRO.

“If you put the volume of MAS and AirAsia, it becomes a mega MRO that can become a real competitor to Singapore's MRO,” he told reporters on the sidelines of Khazanah Megatrends Forum 2011.

Apart from MRO collaboration, both parties could also become big players in the area of training using the training capacity of both airlines.

“Malaysia can become Asia's biggest trainer of pilots by harnessing the strengths of both airlines which have excellent records of pilot and engineering quality,” he said.

He added that AirAsia was also looking at other areas of collaboration with MAS, such as in cargo and catering to help cut costs and maximise revenue for both airlines.

“AirAsia does not use LSG (Germany-based LSG Sky Chef is an in-flight service provider) for catering but together, we may get a much better deal from LSG and better quality. So, these are the revenue, cost and new business opportunity ideas,” he said.

Fernandes said more details on cost and revenue joint ventures with MAS would be announced soon.

Reiterating the need for branding. he said both parties needed to ensure MAS and AirAsia were globally recognised.

He was very optimistic about the collaboration (between the airlines) becoming successful despite receiving some sceptical comments from certain parties.

The collaboration came about after Khazanah Nasional Bhd, the major shareholder of MAS, announced that it would take up 10% stake in AirAsia while Tune Air Sdn Bhd, the investment vehicle of Fernandes and Datuk Kamarudin Meranun, would own a 20.5% stake in MAS under a share-swap deal.

Both Khazanah and Tune Air have agreed not to sell their shares for a period of 30 months under the share-swap deal.

On top of the share swap, a collaboration agreement was signed simultaneously by MAS, AirAsia and AirAsia X, which would effectively see MAS concentrate on being a full-service premium carrier, AirAsia on being a regional low-cost carrier (LCC) and AirAsia X, a medium-to-long haul LCC.

KUALA LUMPUR: A tie-up between Malaysian Airline System Bhd (MAS) and AirAsia Bhd could save both airlines as much as RM1 billion a year, a local research house estimated yesterday.

Maybank Investment Bank (Maybank IB) said by realigning capacity to match market demand, both airlines can save as much as RM300 million to RM400 million.

It estimated that roughly 70% of the combined capacity of MAS and AirAsia is deployed on overlapping routes, which undermines yields, load factor and ultimately profitability.

“Unfortunately, these irrational practices are a permanent feature due to both airlines’ adamant quest for domination,” Maybank IB said, adding that there is surplus capacity on certain routes.
MAS-AirAsia rationalisation to dent KLIA growth
Posted on 7 February 2012 - 08:06pm KANG SIEW LI
http://www.thesundaily.my/news/288403

PETALING JAYA (Feb 7, 2012): The route rationalisation by Malaysia Airlines (MAS), AirAsia and AirAsia X is expected to put a dent in passenger air traffic growth at the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang this year, industry observers say.

They pointed to the national carrier's suspension of eight routes including those from KLIA to Dubai, Surabaya, Johannesburg and Rome, as part of its new business plan to turn around by 2013.

Last December, MAS had said it would cut back its available network capacity by 12% in 2012 for an expected gain of RM220 million to RM302 million, trimming its capacity in the long-haul segment to focus on the medium- and short-haul routes following a share swap deal with AirAsia.
Apart from the eight international flights out of KLIA, MAS has also suspended or will suspend four regional routes from Kota Kinabalu to Osaka, Perth, Tokyo and Seoul.

AirAsia X, the budget long-haul affiliate of AirAsia, had also announced plans to withdraw its flights to Mumbai, Delhi, Paris and London from KLIA between Jan 31 and March 30 this year.

"It is not surprising why Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is projecting only a 6.6% increase in passenger growth this year, despite recording a double-digit growth of 10.6% in 2011, as MAS and AirAsia X make deeper cuts to their international flight schedule and foreign airlines are not putting additional frequencies or launching new destinations to and from KLIA as fast," an industry observer told SunBiz.

Last week, MAHB told Bursa Malaysia it was projecting passenger movements at KLIA to grow by 6.6% based on the country's indicative 5-6% gross domestic product growth.

"The passenger growth would, in general, depend on Malaysia's and global economic performance, in particular the Asia-Pacific region," it had said, but did not elaborate.

Passenger air traffic at KLIA has slipped to single-digit growth since August last year. According to data released by MAHB, the number of passengers passing through KLIA grew only by single-digit percentages — 9.7%, 8.7%, 5.6%, 6.4% and 5.6% in August, September, October, November and December, respectively, from a year ago.

In contrast with figures in January-July 2011, monthly passenger traffic at KLIA posted double-digit growth, ranging from a low of 10.5% to a high of 16% from the same period in 2010.

Nevertheless, KLIA managed to show double-digit growth of 10.6% to 37.7 million passengers for the full year 2011, thanks to healthy passenger growth in the first seven months.

MAS took over the jet services of its subsidiary Firefly in October last year, which saw several domestic routes from KLIA to points in Sabah and Sarawak, namely Sibu, Sandakan, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching, suspended.

However, MAS will reintroduce the Kuala Lumpur-Sandakan direct flight on Feb 18.

KLIA2 to feature more self-service options
Published: 2012/02/10
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1lzcgnx2c

SEPANG: The new low-cost carrier terminal at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, or KLIA2, will feature more self-service options for passengers to manage their travel than the current one.

This is in line with a global trend in which airports and airlines are increasingly moving towards self-service, said Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad, chief executive officer of airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB).

MAHB data shows that 65 per cent of passengers at the current low-cost carrier terminal, also in Sepang, use self-service compared with 25 per cent at the main terminal building.

"I think all airports, even airlines, are moving towards this. It saves a lot of money for us, it reduces manpower and the passengers themselves want this," he said after his keynote address at the Future Travel Experience Asia 2012 conference here, yesterday.

The self-service for passengers using KLIA2 include common-use self service kiosks and baggage drop, home-printed boarding pass and baggage tag, as well as free wifi and Internet kiosks. KLIA2 is expected to be completed in April next year.

Passengers, especially the younger and more information technology-savvy ones, want better control of their travel experience to ensure that it is hassle-free. Input from surveys and focus groups conducted by MAHB have indicated this, Bashir said.

"They really want everything at their fingertips, especially the younger ones ... and that means self-service," he remarked.

The conference, hosted by MAHB, drew some 300 executives from airport operators, airlines and technology providers around the world, focused on improving the end-to-end travel process for passengers.

Bashir felt that all airports in Asia should eventually be self-service ones. "In time to come, yes. If you have huge (passenger) traffic, then you may have problems doing this, but in the long-term, you have to."

Mike Chew, Star Alliance's director for airport services and reservations, said Asia is ready to embrace self-service.

"It's no longer a question of 'if' Asia is ready ... it's a question of how and what formula it will take. Some of the initiatives it adopts may not mirror the West," he said at a panel session on the topic.

Paul Behan, head of passenger experience at the International Air Transport Association, noted that self-service in Asia had progressed significantly over the years. "Talk that self-service is not very extensive and resisted in this region is 'nonsense'," he said.

MAHB in talks with Russian airline
By Vasantha GanesanPublished: 2012/02/21
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1mwo9wCeN

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is in negotiations with Russia's S7 Airlines to commence flights into Kuala Lumpur.

It is understood that the airline will either depart from Novosibirsk or Khaborosk.

Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Ng Yen Yen, who revealed this at a press conference recently, said that this would add to Transaero Airlines flights from Russia which started to ply the Moscow-Kuala Lumpur route once a week from December 30 last year.

Transaero will increase its frequency to twice a week from March this year.

Ng, who was announcing the latest tourist arrival figures and projections for 2012, said that Malaysia hit a record tourist arrival number of 24.7 million in 2011, but missed its target of 25 million.

The ministry has also not made a higher projection than it did for 2011. Both the ministry and Tourism Malaysia have set a very conservative and exact 25 million target for 2012, largely attributable to flight cancellations by Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia X.

"As we were looking at 2012 targets, we have to look at accessibility. It is with great sadness (to note) that MAS is reducing flights and AirAsia is reducing flights," Ng said.

MAS has announced numerous route cuts, including Dubai and Cape Town and Johannesburg in South Africa, while AirAsia X has announced the cancellation of flights into Mumbai and New Delhi in India, and London and Paris in Europe.

"We also do not see much improvement in other airlines flying here. That will be a very big challenge for our tourism (targets)," she said.

"If there is no accessibility, it will be very hard to increase (arrivals)," she said.

She added that Malaysia's tourism projection for the year would have been much better if the flights are not cancelled by both airlines.

Nevertheless, she said the country hopes to narrow the gap as new airlines make their way here and existing ones increase frequencies.

It was also reported that she plans to persuade the airlines to resume their flights but admitted that it was beyond her jurisdiction as it is a business decision.

S7 Airlines is part of the Oneworld Alliance, which MAS will also be joining.

Meanwhile, the ministry said Jin Air from Seoul, South Korea, is bringing in chartered services into Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. It will operate 19 flights from December 31 to March 3 using a B737-800 aircraft.

Interestingly, MAS will cease the four times weekly Kota Kinabalu-Seoul flights from today.

KLIA2 on course for completion in April next year
Tuesday March 6, 2012
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...811&sec=nation

SEPANG: The construction of KLIA2 is on schedule to meet its target completion date in April 2013, said Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB).

MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said the new low-cost terminal was now 45% completed “as per schedule”.

He was speaking to reporters after accompanying Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha on a visit to the KLIA2 construction site.

“This is the second time the Minister is visiting the site and we have updated him on the progress,” said Bashir.

The construction work for KLIA2 started in October 2009.

It is now estimated to cost be**tween RM3.6bil and RM3.9bil, at least 80% more than its provisional budget of RM2bil.

In November last year, MAHB had cited additions to the new terminal for passenger comfort as reasons for the cost increase.

These include a shopping mall, an automated baggage handling system and significant upgrades in terms of floor space, the length of runways and the number of aircraft stands at the terminal.

Currently, MAHB is in the process of calling for tender bids for the new terminal’s commercial space.

According to Bashir, the response from retailers is “very good”.

Upon completion, KLIA2 is estimated to have the capacity to serve up to 45 million passengers annually – three times the capacity of the existing LCCT.
