AirAsia X to increase flights to Australia
Published: 2013/08/26
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2djHDB3Tn

AirAsia X Bhd will increase its current flights services from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, Australia, later this year.

The airline will increase its current flights to Sydney and Melbourne from 12 weekly flights and to Perth from nine weekly flights to 14 flights a week.

The daily flights from Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne will start on October 1, 2013 and to Sydney and Perth on Nov 25, 2013, AirAsia X said in a statement.

The announcement followed the finalisation of a revised bilateral agreement between the Australian and Malaysian governments and an expansion of AirAsia X’s long-haul fleet of Airbus A330-300s which will comprise 16 aircraft at end-December 2013.

AirAsia X is expected to become Australia’s fourth largest foreign carrier by end-2013 as it allocates its additional capacity for the remainder of the year to the market.

"Overall, the airline has carried over 3.4 million passengers to and from its Australian routes since it began operations in Australia in 2007," AirAsia X chief executive officer Azran Osman-Rani said.

Australia contributed over 40 per cent of the airline’s total revenue, with an average of 83 per cent passenger load in the first-half of 2013, he said.

"Our flights from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney, Melbourne and Perth routes have performed extremely well and the new daily services will help meet increasing demand," added Azran.

He said AirAsia X was also looking at doubling its fly-thru arrivals into Australia and from Australia across its group network.

"AirAsia X has been lobbying both governments for some time for the increased capacity, and we are delighted to be able to further expand our reach across these dynamic cities from Kuala Lumpur," he said.-- Bernama

Travel News:

AirAsia X flies to Gold Coast, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Chengdu, Taipei, Tokyo-Haneda, Osaka-Kansai, Seoul, Busan, Jeddah and Kathmandu. (Tony Fernandes says flights to Delhi and Mumbai could be reinstated soon)

In the meantime, sister carrier AirAsia is advertising:




*******************


In a positive response against AirAsia's expansion plans, Malindo Air, the affiliate of Indonesia's Lion Air in Malaysia also announced their immediate expansion plans.

It not too long ago that it just started, and now it flies to:
- from KLIA via Boeing --> Kuching, Kota Kinabalu, Miri, Sibu, Penang, Langkawi
- from Subang Airport via ATR --> Alor Setar, Johor Bahru, Penang, Langkawi, Kota Bharu, Kuala Terengganu
- from Johor Bahru via Boeing --> Kota Kinabalu (to commence on October 10)



Malindo Air began its first international flights to Dhaka recently.

And by next week, it plans to commence Jakarta and Denpasar (Bali). Then, before year end, Malindo plans to fly to Delhi, Mumbai and Kochi - all of which already approved by Malaysian authorities. It was reported before that Malindo Air plans to tap its parent Lion Air's Indonesian network by providing Indonesians low-cost access to international routes in India and China.

Airbus facility will put M’sia on the map
Posted on October 3, 2013, Thursday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2013/10...#ixzz2gc3rdpNg



IMPORTANT SECTOR: (From right) Najib along with Airbus president and CEO

SEPANG: The new Airbus Customer Services facility will put Malaysia on the international map as a centre for specialised aerospace engineering services, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said yesterday.

The centre to be located adjacent to the Sepang Aircraft Engineering (SAE) facility represents an expansion of the manufacturer’s global network of offices providing 24/7 specialised major aircraft engineering and repair services.

Existing offices offering these services are located in Toulouse, Hamburg, Wichita and Beijing.

Speaking at the construction of a second hangar at the SAE facility here yesterday, Najib said Malaysia is among the three leading countries in the Asia Pacific for maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) centre for services.

The hanger is a joint venture between Airbus and SAE, and marking an expansion of its footprints in Southeast Asia.

Najib said: “We have been able to stay competitive because of the sheer volume of business in this region, coupled with our advantage of an early foray into the sector and an edge in quality human capital at far more competitive rates.

“Our superior cost position is powerfully attractive to airline customers.

“Malaysia has thus identified the MRO business as one of the sectors in the Business Services Entry National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs),” he said.

The Prime Minister said the NKEA represents an important catalyst for Malaysia’s development towards high-income nation status in 2020.

The MRO sector is projected to grow by 10 per cent annually and new projects are expected to create 20,000 jobs in the country, he said.

“This year our Entry Point Projects’ target is RM380 million in revenue from fleet technical management and RM2.4 billion from airframe MRO,” he said.

Najib said several initiatives were already underway to develop the MRO ecosystem.

He said there was greater development of Malaysia’s airport infrastructure, the availability of land and the creation of more conducive operating environment through improved tax and civil aviation regulations.

“These we are confident will continue to make Malaysia as a preferred MRO destination.

“The aspiration is to capture five per cent of the world market share in the MRO business.

“Thus, the government will be most supportive of any efforts to part take in this journey,” added Najib, who is also the Finance Minister. — Bernama

MAS: Aviation sector needs bigger allocation
By Roziana HamsawiPublished: 2013/10/25
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2igZAYNzu



MALAYSIA Airlines (MAS) is hopeful of a bigger allocation for the aviation industry in the 2014 Budget to be announced today.

Group chief executive Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said capacity at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) needs to be improved and ongoing investment is needed to keep the airport going.

"If we don't improve the infrastructure, in terms of air traffic (management systems) for example, the KLIA will reach its limit and this may result in congestion," he said after unveiling MAS' redesigned ticketing office at KL Sentral, here, yesterday.

He said MAS will be redesigning all 121 of its ticketing offices in the next three years as it aims to enhance customers' experience.

The airline's commercial director Dr Hugh Noel Dunleavy said the transformation is a step towards creating a consistent brand identity at MAS ticketing offices worldwide.

He said the new look is part of the airlines' journey to enrich passengers' experience, not just on board its aircraft but also on the ground.

Dunleavy said the renovation of the ticketing offices not only allows better interaction between MAS staff and the customers, but also indirectly helps increase its over-the-counter sales.

"Over-the-counter sales currently contribute about five to six cent to our group sales," he said, noting that increasing sales is not the airline's main objective when embarking on the refreshed look.

Dunleavy said with the transformation, the national carrier aims to provide a "one-stop shop" that offers greater convenience to customers to purchase tickets for MAS, Firefly or MASwings flights, as well as redeem Enrich Miles.

The flagship store at KL Sentral will have a special Enrich platinum personalised desk, four dedicated desks to serve first class, business class, Enrich gold and silver passen-gers and 12 counters for the economy class and Enrich blue members.

Effective tomorrow, the KL Sentral ticketing office will be serving customers seven days a week, including public holidays, from 4.30am to midnight.

Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

MAS offers year round daily frequencies
Published: 2013/11/15
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2kiHEdkXp

Malaysian Airlines (MAS) will offer year-round direct daily services between Auckland and Kuala Lumpur, effective March 30, 2014.

Regional senior vice-president, Australia/New Zealand/South-West Pacific, Lee Poh Kait said the airlines would officially operate daily from Auckland to Kuala Lumpur from end-March due to the positive response towards MAS' additional seasonal seventh weekly frequency.

The additional service, MH132, will depart Auckland every Monday at 1.15am and arrive in KL at 7.40am, in addition to Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

The return flight, MH133, will depart Kuala Lumpur on Sunday in addition to Tuesday, Thursday and Friday departing at 8.45am and arriving in at Auckland 10.45pm the following day.

Meanwhile, the daily flights will be operated by the B777-200 aircraft with 35 business class and 247 economy seats, providing a total weekly capacity of 1,974 seats in each direction.

Lee said the increased frequency between Auckland and Kuala Lumpur was in line with MAS’ continued efforts to further strengthen its position and competitive edge across the Australia/New Zealand market.

"We have also recently increased more capacity into Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, as well as, introduced Darwin as the sixth online destination in Australia.

"MAS passengers travelling from Australia/New Zealand will benefit from improved connectivity through the airlines’ hub in Kuala Lumpur to other destinations within the network across Asia, to Europe and beyond," he added.-- Bernama

AirAsia X to fly to Nagoya in March 2014
Published: 2013/11/18
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2kzr7lojs

AirAsia X Bhd, in a move to expand its operations, will fly to Nagoya, its third destination in Japan in March next year after Tokyo and Osaka.

Chief executive officer Azman Osman-Rani said the low cost carrier would commence four weekly flights to Chubu Centrair International Airport in Nagoya from Kuala Lumpur.

In conjunction with the new destination, AirAsia X will offer discounted hot deals for the route from as low as RM199 on eonomy and RM699 premium to Nagoya.

Booking online is available from November 19-24, 2013 for the travel period between March 17 and August 5, 2014, the company said in a statement.

"This marks another milestone for AirAsia X and reiterates our expansion commitment in the key markets we operate in the Asia Pacific Region.

"With the addition of Nagoya, guests will have more travel options to explore Japan and the airline has carried over half-a-million passengers to and from Japan," he said, adding that Japan contributed over 14 per cent of AirAsia X's total revenue in the first half of the year.

Azman said Japanese guests would be able to fly to a host of destinations from Kuala Lumpur, using AirAsia’s Fly-Thru service, which allowed guests to easily connect between two different flights via the Kuala Lumpur Low Cost Carrier Terminal without having to worry about checking in twice.-- Bernama

Co-founder and director Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said the airline is also looking at flying to the United States with the delivery of its newly ordered A330-300s in 2015.

"The margins are thin on these routes but we will do it for the long-term," Fernandes said on the sidelines of the signing ceremony between AirAsia X and Airbus recently for the firm order of 25 more A330-300s.

At US$6 billion (RM19.7 billion) , this is the world's largest order in a single purchase agreement by an airline for the A330-300.

Fernandes said AirAsia X aims to be the "Emirates of Southeast Asia", flying to new destinations and entering new markets such as Mongolia, with 57 confirmed planes by 2019.

The airline has carried more than nine million passengers since commencing operations in 2007, serving 18 destinations across Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

AirAsia X will be riding on the positive growth in the aviation industry, due to rising demand for air travel as well as positive economic growth, he said, adding the aviation industry's outlook looks positive.

"The opening of klia2, the new budget terminal next year, will give a massive boost to the industry," he said.

He emphasised on the opportunity for Malaysia to be like Dubai, the world's leading aviation hub, with support from the government and airport authorities. Bernama

Malindo to add six more flights to India

KUALA LUMPUR: Hybrid carrier Malindo Air will add six new routes to India this year, giving the 10-month- old airline up to a 25 per cent control of the Malaysia-India market.

The airline, established in March last year, currently flies to New Delhi and Trichy and has a less than eight per cent share of the market.

Malindo is increasing capacity to South India because of passenger demand and also to bring tourists here in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year, said its chief executive officer Chandran Ramamuthy.

A million origin-destination passengers travel between India and Malaysia annually on non-stop services.

Chandran told Business Times the airline will launch a flight to Mumbai on February 15 and Ahmedabad by March 19.

By June or July, the Lion Air Group affiliate will fly to Cochin.

Chandran said Malindo will also fly directly to Pondicherry between July and November.

He said by December, it will add either Madurai or Coimbatore in the south, and Amritsar or Pune in the north to its network.

"We are considering Coimbatore as it is close to Kerala and we can capture a larger market there. We have approval to fly to all these places except for Madurai. which is pending," he said.

Chandran said new destinations next year will include Visakhapatnam and Hyderabad.

"We have approval to fly to Hyderabad but it would depend on demand. We are studying the potential," he said.

Malindo, with its aggressive plans for India, could give tough competition to Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia, two strong players in the sector.

The Kuala Lumpur-Delhi and Kuala Lumpur-Mumbai routes are currently served by MAS while AirAsia is a major player for the Kuala Lumpur-Trichy sector.

According to Capa Centre for Aviation, once all the Malindo flights are added, MAS will see its share in the Malaysia-India market drop from 53 per cent in December to 46 per cent in March.

Similarly, AirAsia's share will drop from 43 per cent to 35 per cent, said Capa.

MAS operates 66 weekly flights to six Indian destinations, while AirAsia has 56 weekly flights to five Indian destinations, according to data by global flight information company OAG.

Chandran said Malindo has enough planes to support its India expansion this year.

It operates six Boeing 737-900s and five ATR 72-600s, all leased from its parent Lion Air. By year-end, it will have 13 Boeing aircraft and 12 ATRs, he said.

Malindo also serves Bangladesh and Indonesia, besides local domestic routes.

New York on MAS' radar?

MALAYSIA Airlines (MAS) plans to resume flights to several destinations this year, including New York, to boost its earnings, sources said.

It is understood that MAS is studying several profitable routes, including flying to new destinations and increasing frequency of existing routes with high potential.

MAS flies direct to more than 60 destinations and a further 800 destinations in more than 150 countries via its oneworld partners.

For the flight to New York, MAS is expected to fly there via London using the A380 aircraft.

MAS had stopped all its New York flights in 2009.

Malaysia Airlines (MAS) will suspend its flights to Los Angeles – its last destination in the Americas – as part of a major cost-cutting drive.

The national carrier, which is expected to post a significant full-year loss for 2013, said it would undertake another “route rationalisation exercise” this year, in an effort to stem the losses. This will see MAS cease to operate its direct Kuala-Lumpur-LAX flights from 30 April 2014.
