Subang Skypark to emerge as aerospace city by 2015
By Bernama
Thursday, 23 August 2012 17:50

KUALA LUMPUR: Subang Skypark Sdn Bhd is set to embark on a RM420 million ambitious infrastructure development plan to transform the former Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, now known as Subang Skypark, into a full-fledged aerospace city by 2015.

Its Executive Director, Tan Sri Ravindran Menon, said the company was planning to utilise between 4 and 4.8 hectares of land, opposite Terminal 3, to build a boutique hotel, an aviation museum and theme park, as part of a retail mall.

"We are in the final round of talks with our expert joint-venture partner, a local established player in the retail and hotel industry. The development, named Skypark Nexus, will have an approximate built-up
area of one million square feet and will rejuvenate the airport's branding as well as enhance the wholesomeness of customer experience in the airport and its surrounding areas," he told Bernama.

Ravindran said all negotiations were expected to be concluded by year-end and works were expected to commence in January.

He added that Skypark Nexus, which would be completed in 24 months, was budgeted to cost between RM300 million and RM350 million. He said the proposed retail mall and hotel would be between four and five-storeys high and Subang Skypark was now talking to the local government to
widen the main roads fronting the proposed development to avoid traffic congestion.

While describing the project as a perfect public private partnership, Ravindran said the cost would be financed through internal fundings and bank borrowings.

"The special aspect in the development is that, there will be a bridge linking the mall and the terminal building - a concept rarely seen in any other city airports worldwide," he said, adding that Subang Skypark Sdn Bhd would invest more than RM70 million to build five new hangars across the current
airport runway.

"We have just awarded the contracts and the hangars will be sprawled over 12 hectares across the runway. The works have begun and we expect them to be operational June next year. These hangars will be for parking and maintenance, repair and operations of both private and corporate jets. Each of the hangars can accommodate up to five aircrafts at any one time," he said.

He added the new facilities would elevate Subang Skypark to be on-par with other city airports and corporate aviation operators, worldwide. Since most aviation-related corporations headquarters were situated in the surroundings of Subang Skypark, Ravindran said Subang would be better known as a aerospace city in the next three years.

"We want to be a fine example to Malaysia Airports on how to develop a city airport. This place will surely boom in years to come as all aviation-related investments will come to this area.
"There are also plans to establish an aviation technical college, of which Measat Satellite Systems Sdn Bhd, is currently looking at that proposal," he said.

Subang Airport was officially opened to traffic on Aug 30, 1965, and had the longest runway in Southeast Asia, replacing the old Sungai Besi Airport. Before the 1998 opening of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang, the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport served as Kuala Lumpur's main international airport.

The airport underwent renovation works at Terminal 3 from February 2008 and was completed in October 2009, and was later renamed as Subang Skypark, which is the current hub for Berjaya Air and Firefly.-- Bernama

Two more airlines to fly into Malaysia
By B.K. SIDHU Wednesday August 29, 2012
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...&if_height=202



Ethiopian is planning thrice-weekly flights to KL International Airport on Oct 31 via Bangkok

PETALING JAYA: At least two more airlines Ethiopian Airlines and Zest Air are expected to fly into Malaysia this year after four made their debut earlier this year.

The four are Bangkok Airways, Philippines' Airphil Express, Indonesia's Mandala Airlines and AirAsia Philippines, and with the latter three flew into the LCCT terminal while Bangkok Airways to KL International Airport.


It is learnt that both the carriers Ethiopian Airlines and Zest Air are planning to commence flights sometime in October.

Ethiopian is planning thrice-weekly flights to KL International Airport on Oct 31 via Bangkok while Zest is looking at flying in from Manila on Oct 22.

A report quoting Ethiopian Airlines chief executive officer Tewolde Gebremariam said that “as the fastest growing airline in Africa, Ethiopian is pleased to offer the opportunity to business people as well as tourists to explore KL. Ethiopian will be the first East African carrier to fly to KL, connecting Africa to the Asia region and in turn strengthening the tourism and trade ties between the peoples of Africa and Asia.

“The connectivity will be via its hub at Addis Ababa, which provides connections to and from major African cities such as Johannesburg, Nairobi, Lagos, Accra, Dar Es Salaam, Entebbe, Harare and Khartoum,” the report said.

KL will be Ethiopian 70th international destination and 18th in the Middle East and Asia.

Zest Air on the other hand is the low-cost carrier from the Philippines and it has yet to decide whether it will fly into KLIA or LCCT. It will also be the second low-cost carrier after Airphill Express from the Philippines to fly into KLIA this year, although Cebu Pacific has been plying the KL-Manila route for sometime now.

Mandala Airlines is from Jakarta and began plying the Jakarta-KL route May this year. Airphil flies twice weekly to the LCCT.

There are around 60 airlines currently operating in Malaysia and the airport operator's, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), target is to attract at least five new airlines to operate out of KLIA every year.

MAHB's passenger traffic grew 4.2%, with 32.5 million passing through its 39 airports nationwide, while both international and domestic passenger movement registered a moderate growth of 5% and 3.5% respectively. It expects a year-end passenger growth target of 6% to 7% and it is “cautiously optimistic” of meeting the target set.

KLIA 2 to commence with 10 airlines in May 2013
Friday September 14, 2012
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...&if_height=202

KUALA LUMPUR: The new low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT), KLIA 2 in Sepang, is set to host 10 frills-free airlines once it is operational in May 2013, according to Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) chief financial officer Faizal Mansor.

He said the airport operator was still open to more airlines to use KLIA 2, as the airport was capable of serving 45 million passengers per year.

“Once the airport is operational, MAHB will have about 10 low-cost carriers. Among them are Zest Airways, Lion Air, Tiger Airways, Cebu Pacific Air and definitely, AirAsia,” Faizal said in an interview.

“We would love to welcome more airlines to KLIA 2. Five years ago, there were only five low-cost carriers but now there are about 30 to 40 budget carriers.”

He added that KLIA 2 was designed to accommodate all types of airlines, but it was best suited for airlines with low-cost business model.

He said the latest to join the group of airlines is Malindo Airways, which was introduced on Tuesday, through a joint venture between National Aerospace and Defence Industries Sdn Bhd and PT Lion Grup.

On Malindo Airways, Faizal said MAHB would commence detailed discussion with the new budget carrier soon, particularly on the level of space and facilities that it needed at the new airport.

“We have very plain understanding and have not gone to the details yet. MAHB welcomes the new airline to Malaysia as well as to KLIA 2. For an airport, the more competition, the better,” he added.

KLIA 2 is being constructed at a cost of nearly RM4bil to replace the temporary LCCT, which was constructed in 2006.

The new airport, located just two km from the main Kuala Lumpur International Airport terminal, would be the largest LCCT in the region upon completion, with a total area of 242,000 sq metres.

The opening of KLIA 2 will also help make Malaysia one of the aviation hubs in South-East Asia.

Meanwhile AirAsia Malaysia CEO Aireen Omar said AirAsia was set to work hand-in-hand with MAHB to discuss and resolve outstanding issues between them with regard to the new LCCT in Sepang.

“Our airline is a low-cost carrier, so we are working with Malaysia Airports to make sure that the airport is ready for a low-cost business structure,” she said. – Bernama

AirAsia keeps option open on KLIA2 switch
By Bilqis Bahari Published: 2012/10/08
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html



AirAsia Malaysia CEO says the decision will be based on whether the new airport is safe and functional and can facilitate the carrier's low-cost operation.

KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia Bhd, Asia's largest low-cost carrier (LCC), remains coy about a move to KLIA2, the new LCC terminal due to be completed in seven months.

AirAsia Malaysia chief executive officer Aireen Omar said the decision will be based on whether the new airport is safe and functional and can facilitate the carrier's low-cost operation.

"In order for us to be able to move there, we need to work closely with Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd to ensure that the KLIA2 move facilitates our low-cost model," she said in an interview recently.

However, there are other ways that AirAsia can manage itself should the new airport prove unsuitable for its low-cost model, she added.

Aireen said the carrier has 16 hubs in the Asean region but declined to elaborate on the possibilities of AirAsia relocating its Malaysia operations to one of its regional hubs.

"There are always other ways. It is not like it's the end of the world for us and that we cannot operate at all," she added.

AirAsia has five hubs in Malaysia, three in Thailand, five in Indonesia, and one each in the Philippines and Japan.

Meanwhile, today marks Aireen's 100th day of spearheading AirAsia's Malaysian operations.

She assumed the post on July 1 after Tan Sri Tony Fernandes moved to Indonesia to focus on regional expansion plans.

"The various internal and external challenges have been exciting and educational for me. It had made me a stronger person," she said.

Since LCC is the engine of new growth in terms of passenger traffic in Asean, Aireen said her aim is to strengthen AirAsia's routes connectivity in the region as well as ensure that productivity continues to increase.

Most importantly, she wanted to make sure that air travel remains affordable by ensuring that the low-cost carrier's operational cost remains low.

"Cost structure is key and we have the lowest cost structure in the world in this industry," she said.

Now all can relax in luxury at KLIA
By Bilqis Bahari Published: 2012/09/19
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...OUNGE/Article/



PLAZA Premium Lounge Management Ltd, an airport lounge service provider, will open six new lounges in the country by June 2013 costing RM10 million.

Its founder and chief executive Song Hoi See said the lounges will cater to domestic and international passengers.

They will be located in Penang International Airport, Kota Kinabalu International Airport and Kuching International Airport.

Plaza Premium also targets to have more than 100 lounges by year-end starting with new lounge openings in Uganda, Macau and Vancouver in Canada.

"Our aim is to create an oasis in the airport. The space is not only limited to first-class travellers, but open to the public and designed to cater to all purposes," he told reporters after the opening of Plaza Premium Lounge at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) yesterday.

Song said the renovation of the KLIA lounge, which is located at the mezzanine level of the satellite building, took about two months at an investment of some RM3.8 million.

The 7,500sq ft lounge has 10 sections namely the massage area, self-served buffet area, dining space, bar and coffee station, noodle bar, relaxing area, business centre, shower rooms and VIP resting area.

Customers that have platinum card from selected banks as well as the business and first-class passengers from selected airlines can use the lounge on a complimentary basis. Those who are not eligible for the complimentary usage could still enjoy the lounge by paying as low as RM128 for two hours.

Meanwhile, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said the top-notch facilities and services offered by the new lounge will strengthen KLIA's position as a lifestyle airport in the region.

"We are very pleased to be partnering Plaza Premium to provide our travellers with the value-added services they expect from a first-class international airport such as KLIA," he said.

Plaza Premium currently operates in more than 90 locations at 21 international airports in Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, India and Oman, among others.

Transit passengers at KLIA can now pre-book city tour via website
By VIJENTHI NAIR Friday September 28, 2012
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...42&sec=central



More convenient: Ahmad Phesal (centre) officially launching the Showcase
KL Transit Tour website. With him are (from left) Tourism Malaysia director-
general Datuk Mirza Mohamad Taiyab, KL Tourism Development Council co-
chairman Datuk Seri Tunku Iskandar Tunku Abdullah, Malaysia Airport Berhad
senior general manager Datuk Azmi Murad and Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur
general manager Robert Dallimore.


BOOKINGS for the Showcase KL Transit tour can now be secured online in advance.

The Showcase KL Transit Tour is a tourism product specifically targeting transit passengers at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) who have five hours or more time to spare, by giving them a glimpse of the city’s attractions.

Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Ahmad Phesal Talib launched the website www.showcasekl.com which enables people from around the world to make prior bookings before arriving at KLIA.

Previously, bookings for the tour which has been available since 2010, could only be made at its ticketing counter at the satellite building terminal at the arrival hall in KLIA.

“Since its inception, we have had more than 500 transit passengers from around the world experiencing the tour and the feedback from them has been very good. Many expressed interest in visiting Malaysia in the future.

“With the Showcase KL ticket, transit passengers are entitled to a return pass on KLIA Express and one-day pass on Kuala Lumpur Hop- On Hop-Off double-decker tour bus that will take them around the city,” he said at the launch at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur.

He also said the price would be maintained at RM95.

He said the price was competitive because other major airports’ transit tour packages cost more such as EUR39 (RM154) charged by Amsterdam airport, US$60 (RM183) by Seoul and Dubai airports and HKD270 (RM105) by Hong Kong airport.

“So, with the Showcase KL selling at RM95 (US$31 or EUR24) and offering a luxury high-speed train service and stopping at 30 attractions in the KL city centre, it is considered very attractive and affordable for our transit visitors,

“Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) is confident and satisfied that the tour is running efficiently and will continue to actively promote the tour globally, including promotional campaigns.

“This transit tour package has great potential in promoting KL through an experiential method,” he said before moving on to chair the third Kuala Lumpur Tourism Development Council meeting to formulate the Kuala Lumpur Tourism Master Plan — the guide to the future tourism development in Kuala Lumpur.

Showcase KL is a product initiated by DBKL in collaboration with other government agencies and the private sector including Tourism Malaysia, Immigration Department, Malaysia Airports Berhad, KLIA Express and KL Hop On Hop Off.

KLIA2 on track for May opening

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 2 — KLIA2, the world’s largest terminal purpose built for low cost carriers, is 70 per cent complete and is on track to commence operations in May, said Malaysia Airports today.
The general manager for construction for KLIA2, Mohd Zaifuddin Idris, said that building work is expected to be completed by the end of January while infrastructure work is expected to be completed by the end of March.

“We are on track for opening on May 1,” said Zaifuddin at the witnessing ceremony of the completion of the KLIA2 skybridge, the first in Asia and third in the world.

He also said that apart from the airlines now flying to the current low cost carrier terminal, another “one or two more” are expected to use KLIA2.

Among the new carriers expected to fly into KLIA2 is the new Malaysia-Indonesia joint venture airline Malindo.

Zaifuddin also said that community airline Firefly has asked for space at KLIA2.

MAHB expects 20m passengers at klia2 in first year of operation
By Bilqis Bahari Published: 2012/11/03
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...2DENG/Article/



SEPANG: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) expects to handle some 20 million passengers at the new low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) klia2 during its first year of operation.

General manager of construction client office - klia2 project, Mohd Zaifuddin Idris, said low-cost carriers (LCCs) which are operating at the current LCCT are set to move their operations to klia2.

These budget carriers include AirAsia Bhd, Tiger Airways, Mandala Air and Cebu Pacific. The new LCC Malindo Airways is set to operate in klia2 once the terminal is ready.

Mohd Zaifuddin said the new terminal is already 65 per cent completed and it will be on track to start operations on May 1 2013.

"The whole physical completion of the terminal is expected to be completed by the end of January next year. Meanwhile, the infrastructure of the terminal will be completed by end of March next year," he told reporters after launching the first skybridge in Asia at klia2.

The skybridge, which costs RM150 million, is expected to be completed by the end of January next year.

The bridge spans about 300m, with 60m of walkalators that will connect the passenger terminal building to the satellite building, allowing passengers to travel between these two points in five minutes.

Speaking on the service-level agreement between MAHB and AirAsia, as well as Malaysia Airlines, Mohd Zaifuddin said MAHB is still in discussions with both airlines on the matter and the agreements will be finalised soon.

He said that there are only a few outstanding issues that the airport operator currently has with AirAsia such as the check-in system.

However, he expects the issues will be resolved soon as MAHB and AirAsia are currently discussing the matter.

On the much debated cost of the new terminal, Mohd Zaifuddin said the cost will remain at RM4 billion unless additional scope is needed.

"Currently we do not foresee any additional scope," he said.
