MPs question KLIA2’s May completion date
UPDATED @ 01:13:37 PM 11-03-2013

BY EMILY DING AND IDA LIM
MARCH 11, 2013



Aerial view of KLIA2 provided by the Pakatan MPs showing the progress of work.

KUALA LUMPUR, March 11 — Pakatan Rakyat (PR) lawmakers today questioned the stage of completion of the KLIA2, the new low-cost carrier terminal which Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) said would be ready by May 1 and be open on June 28.

“We are assuming the announcement (of) June 28 is to buy time,” the DAP’s Tony Pua said, referring to the statement by MAHB senior general manager Faizah Khairuddin last week, where she had specified the “terminal building” as having surpassed the 80 per cent completion rate.

“They are being a bit disingenuous,” Petaling Jaya Utara MP Pua said, questioning the state of completion of the control tower and systems, the apron and the runway.

Showing reporters aerial and ground photographs of the runway and apron of the KLIA2 construction site that were taken within the past two weeks, Pua said: “It’s all still red earth. Red earth that has not settled properly yet.”


Another view of work on KLIA2 showing just a sea of red earth.

Pua pointed out that the goalposts for completion were moved repeatedly from the original date of September 2011.

Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar, who was also at the press conference, said they are ready to visit and inspect the KLIA2 construction site.

“We would also like to request the minister of transport, including MAHB officers, to arrange a site visit to allay our fear, allay our concerns and convince us that everything is on track,” the PKR vice-president said, pointing out that public funds were used in the construction.

“If they have nothing to hide, why not organise a site visit?” she asked.

Nurul Izzah also highlighted the KLIA2’s construction cost, which had previously jumped from RM1.7 billion to RM3.9 billion.

On February 21, MAHB was reportedly confident of sticking to a RM4 billion budget for KLIA 2, despite increases in the prices of raw materials attributed partly to the ongoing My Rapid Transit (MRT) rail project.

MAHB’s Chief Financial Officer Faizal Mansor reportedly said the KLIA2’s cost is the lowest for all airports, pointing out that it is cheaper than Changi Airport Group’s proposed S$1.2 billion terminal four in Singapore with a 17 million passenger capacity.

KLIA2, which is expected to cater to 45 million passengers, will have a new 4km runway, a new control tower and air traffic control equipment.

I did visited KL recently. And I have to say the LCCT is one of the worst airport I've ever been. A stark contrast to KLIA. It is surrounded by traffic jams area, the layout is rather confusing, which is really annoying when you're in a hurry.

Opening of KLIA2 must be glitch-free

THE construction of KLIA2 is on track, with the DCA Tower completed, and ahead of schedule.

On average, the construction of the new permanent low-cost carrier terminal in Sepang is 87% done, although different jobs are at different stages of construction.

So, there's only 13% more to go and that includes the commissioning period. Airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is monitoring the progress on a daily basis.

And while the contractor for the tower did a speedy job, the same cannot be said of the original Runway 3 (R3) contractor. The original R3 contractor had actually confessed over two months ago that they could not finish the job on time.

While that was being very frank, fortunately, MAHB managed to get a replacement contractor the one that completed the tower and is proceeding on to the R3 job.

At present, the R3 works seem to be progessing on schedule at seemingly no extra cost, although the original contractor might lose some money because of his sunken cost. However, that is the price to pay for non-timely delivery. At this juncture, the R3 should be completed on time.

On the topic of delivery, several changes have been made to the completion date of KLIA2. Deferred from last year to April, we are now staring at June 28, the latest target date for completion.

This week, the winds of speculation blew again and an analyst hinted in his report of “an increased probability that KLIA2 would not be able to start operations by June 28”.

Any delays would possibly lead to cost overruns, from the planned budget of RM4bil to, perhaps, RM4.5bil, assuming there is a delay. However, it should be noted that the RM4bil includes a small buffer for the unforseeable.

The analyst also pointed out that MAHB might need time to run tests and checks before commissioning the airport, and this could take an additional three to six months. But all that is well within the completion timeline.

While the analyst is entitled to his views, it is really up to the contractors to complete the job on time.

No party should drag their feet and try to get more in acceleration works while they are busy undertaking other jobs elsewhere. In short, they should not compromise one job over another.

But then again, complicated airport construction works to opening delays is a given around the world. The Denver airport, for instance, faced huge baggage system problems on Day 1. The Hong Kong airport, meanwhile, had its own issues, while the Doha airport had to delay its opening. Not to be outdone, the Berlin airport has delayed its opening four times!

Whatever the issue or problem, the key is for all parties to work towards completing the job on time, and ensuring that on the opening day and subsequently, there are no glitches, as KLIA2 is set to be the main gateway for low-cost traffic.

The opening day experience should be a memorable one and not one filled with frustrations.

For that, a delay is better than a glitch, because at the end of the day, a glitch is something passengers tend to remember.

l Deputy news editor B.K. Sidhu feels the focus should be on getting the job done, and well, without resorting to a rushed job.

Air France starts Paris-KL route to tap 'dramatic increase in demand'
By June RamleePublished: 2013/04/24
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2RLAnzgt7



SEPANG: A dramatic increase in the number of French and European business and leisure travellers has prompted Air France to fly to Kuala Lumpur three times a week from Paris.

At its inaugural flight yesterday, Air France chief executive officer Alexandre de Juniac said the airline sees Malaysia as a country with fantastic growth potential and, hence, its reasoning for operating flights here.

"Last year, some 100,000 French tourists flew here and we also find Malaysia to be a very important business destination," he said after Air France made its return to Malaysia after a 20-year absence.

An Air France B777 touched down at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 1.52pm yesterday.

De Juniac said with the three weekly flights to Malaysia, French and European travellers can also leverage on the transit operated by its sister airline, KLM, to Jakarta.

However, the bad news is that the Air France flight will not be as cheap as those flights operated by the Middle Eastern airlines.

"We are operating direct flights and we cater to a wide range of travellers," he said, without elaborating.

De Juniac said Air France is also looking at increasing flight frequencies in various parts of the world.

Right now, Malaysia is the second destination in Southeast Asia for Air France after Singapore.

In Singapore, Air France operates daily flights as many Europeans and French use that sector to go to Australia.

Air France chief officer for long haul flights, Bruno Matheu, said it took the airline almost four years to come up with daily flights from Paris to Singapore.

With the new service, Air France now operates 15 destinations in eight Asian countries.

Its flights to Kuala Lumpur will complement KLM's 14 weekly flights to Malaysia, of which seven are operated by KLM's codeshare partner Malaysia Airlines.
