AirAsia becomes first airline to pilot interpol I-Checkit system
13 May 2014| last updated at 03:44PM
http://www.nst.com.my/latest/airasia...ystem-1.595560

KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia Bhd will pilot the International Criminal Police Organisation's (INTERPOL) I-Checkit system as part of ongoing efforts to enhance international travel security.

In a statement, the airlines said the system would screen the passports of all its prospective passengers against the world police body’s Stolen and Lost Travel Documents (SLTD) database.

"Once implemented later this month, the pilot project will see AirAsia become the first airline to integrate I-Checkit with their own check-in systems during the passenger check-in phase across its entire international network, allowing passenger passport numbers to be compared against INTERPOL’s SLTD database which contains more than 40 million records from 167 countries," it said.

AirAsia Group Chief Executive Officer Tan Sri Tony Fernandes was quoted as saying in the statement that the partnership would result in improved passenger security and support its desire to offer low fares but with the added assurance that this system and partnership would provide.

The I-Checkit system will be deployed across all of AirAsia’s international operations, covering a network of 100 airports across Asia and 600 international flights per day to more than 20 countries worldwide.

INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K Noble said this partnership would raise the bar across the industry for passenger safety and security.

"AirAsia has established the new standard for airline security by screening the passports of all international passengers against INTERPOL’s database," he added.

Malaysia aviation industry to see stabilised yields in 1Q14
Posted on May 12, 2014, Monday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2014/05...ields-in-1q14/

KUCHING: Analysts have viewed that while they do not expect ‘head-turning’ results in the aviation industry for the first quarter of 2014 (1Q14), there are some credible signs of stabilisation in yields in 1Q14 which could bode well for the sector.

Maybank Investment Bank Bhd’s research arm (Maybank IB Research) in a recent note, opined, “We believe that the fare war of 2013 had reached its tail end back in 4Q13 and will show some credible signs of stabilisation in 1Q14 with a lower yield drop. The yields should be higher year-on-year (y-o-y) from 2Q14 onwards.”

This, it said, was based on its observation that published ticket prices were higher y-o-y for all domestic sectors, European and some regional sectors.
“However, we note that published fares to Australia, Thailand and selected Chinese destinations (Beijing, Xian, and Shanghai) remain very cheap,” it added.

Meanwhile, so far, Maybank IB Research viewed that major airlines have reported impressive operating statistics for 1Q14.

“Passenger traffic grew by 18.4 per cent y-o-y in 1Q14, which makes Malaysia the fastest growing country in Asia Pacific,” it commented.

The research firm explained that Malaysian Airline System Bhd (MAS) had carried 20.7 per cent more passengers y-o-y in 1Q14, which constituted 31.6 per cent of the total industry growth while AirAsia X Bhd’s (AirAsia X) growth of 66.9 per cent y-o-y constituted 13.5 per cent of the total industry growth.

Traffic of the other airlines, not including AirAsia Bhd (AirAsia), grew 23.1 per cent y-o-y, constituting 48.5 per cent of the total industry growth.


This passenger traffic growth is in line with Maybank IB Research’s view that the MH370 incident on March 8 will only have a negative impact for a short period for air travel.

“Other similar historical incidents saw two to three months of weakness in air travel demand before a full recovery. We don’t think this incident will pose a long term structural impact on the Malaysian aviation industry,” it said.

Meanwhile, the industry’s load factor remained strong at 79.5 per cent in 1Q14, a growth of 1.3 percentage points from a year ago, the research firm said.

As for the average jet fuel price for 1Q14, it reported that prices were at US$130.8 per barrel, which was 2.5 per cent lower than in 1Q13.

“However, cost savings from the lower fuel price is partially negated by the ringgit/US dollar depreciating by 6.8 per cent y-o-y to 3.2883 in 1Q14.

“In addition, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has imposed a nine and 18 per cent increase in landing and parking charges respectively starting January 1, 2014,” it explained.

Taking into account all these factors, Maybank IB Research expect the airlines to show a modest unit cost reduction of less than or equal to one per cent y-o-y in 1Q14.

As for passenger service charges (PSC), it noted that the PSC at the airports was supposed to have increased by 10 per cent on February 12, 2014 as part of the operating agreement between MAHB and the government.

However, the government remained silent on this matter and therefore the old tariff remains and this is positive for the airlines as a PSC increase would negatively impact yields, it viewed.

As for other developments in the aviation industry, the research firm noted that the opening of klia2 would bode well for AirAsia X and Malindo, but it might a mixed impact on AirAsia and increasing competition for MAS.

It explained, klia2 would bring instant benefits to airlines such as AirAsia X and Malindo as the airport has an international concourse and this will enable passengers to make seamless transits within the enclave of the terminal. It added that Malindo would also benefit from the lower PSC at klia2 compared to the main terminal (circa 50 per cent cheaper), and this will boost its competitiveness against the AirAsia Group.

On the impact to AirAsia, it viewed that the bigger and better terminal will provide the platform for long term growth and enhance its customer experience but the airline would have to abandon many of its low cost carrier (LCC) practices such as not using aerobridges and a swift 25 minute aircraft turnaround is not possible with this terminal layout.

“In many ways, we think AirAsia has to tweak its operations and become a network carrier in order to fully take advantage of its home base at klia2,” it opined.

As for MAS, the current cheaper PSC at klia2 may result in some of MAS’ core passengers switching to other airlines based at klia2 due to the cheaper all-in cost (ticket fare and PSC) and the fact that the comfort margin has narrowed.

Khazanah studies all restructuring options for MAS: Azman Mokhtar
10 JUNE 2014 @ 3:10 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/node/1382

KUALA LUMPUR: Khazanah Nasional Bhd will come up with a plan to restructure troubled Malaysia Airlines (MAS) within a year, said Managing Director Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar today.

Speaking to reporters here, he said all options were being considered at the moment, reflecting the seriousness of the current situation and the importance of MAS to the country.

“At this moment, we are not prepared to say which option yet.But suffice to say, a lot of work has been done,” he said on the sidelines of Invest Malaysia 2014 here.

Azman said a sustained turnaround of MAS would need a strong improvement in its internal work culture and discipline, external support, as well as leadership and management.

“All three areas obviously need to be consolidated. Where the question of leadership and management is concerned, this area too we will seek to improve over time,” said Azman.

He also said there is a possibility of the national carrier downsizing its flights in the near-term until a restructuring plan is formulated, given that MAS has a reasonable leeway in making choices over its network plan.

“Last year, despite losses, MAS’ load factor breached 81 pct due to the One World alliance, which gave more options in terms of connectivity,” he added.

Azman said Khazanah Nasional’s divestment programme was still ongoing, whereby, it would divest its stake in companies that are non-core, nor competitive.

When asked where MAS would fit into this picture, he said the airline is a core business as it is the national carrier and part of the national development agenda.

However, he added, the dilemma lay in its struggle to be competitive, which is a similar story with most airlines today.

Azman said on the question of whether Khazanah Nasional would still be the major shareholder of MAS would ultimately depend on the airlines’ special shareholder, the Malaysian government.

“The final decision will be made by the government.Our job is to give proper advice on what needs to be done,” he added.

Khazanah Nasional has injected RM5 billion into MAS to date and asked if this money has been effectively used, he said: “Looking at the way it has been spent, the short answer is ‘no’, because from the financial standpoint, MAS continues to make losses.

“However, from the national viewpoint, the answer to this is less obvious as MAS, like all carriers, brings other economic impact and intangibles to the country, as in terms of connectivity and bringing the world to our shores.”

On the recent resignation of MASKargo chief Mohd Yunus Idris and if this is the start of more heads rolling at the national carrier, Azman emphasised that it was normal for perople to come and go in the industry.

On Khazanah’s semi-conductor wafer maker, SilTerra Malaysia, Azman said in the last nine to 10 years, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) and operating profit had been mildly profitable.

“We have always stated that the viability of the company required it to be part of a bigger strategic alliance. We have also been working to ensure there is no bleeding new money at the EBITDA level,” he added. -- Bernama

MAS partners Tourism Australia on holiday packages
13 JUNE 2014 @ 1:08 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/node/2393

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines (MAS) is partnering Tourism Australia to offer fares starting at RM999 to six Australian cities, namely, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Darwin.

In a joint statement today, MAS said for bookings made between June 14-July 7, 2014, for immediate travel till March 31, 2015, passengers stand to enjoy an up to 50 per cent off the current all-inclusive fares on both economy and business Class.

MAS flies 72 times weekly to six cities across Australia.

“Our all-in-fare includes generous checked in baggage allowance and meals, including Chef-on-Call for business class passengers,” he added.

Tourism Australia’s Regional General Manager, South/Southeast Asia & The Gulf, Karyn Kent said Malaysian travellers should take this opportunity to enjoy a self-drive holiday in Australia.

“We are excited to be working with MAS once again as Malaysia continues to be a good market for us.

“We have seen growth of 19.4 per cent in Malaysian arrivals for the year ending April 2014, and are happy to work with valued airline partners such as MAS to further boost arrivals,” he added.

MAS flies 21 times a week to Sydney and Melbourne, seven times to Brisbane and Adelaide, 12 times to Perth and four times to Darwin. -- Bernama

Tribute to the crews of MH370 and MH17 and their passengers and also an acknowledgement to all Malaysia Airlines crew and staff in their effort to deliver Malaysian Hospitality.

May Malaysia Airlines fly higher for many years to come.

Exactly! Just speechless at this unbelievable step they took after all that happened. Apparently they do not think it would happen 3 times consecutively. Real dumb and clueless people at the top... it's a shame.

The route is approved by ICAO and skirts East of Syria near the turkish border. it does not directly fly over conflict area and even FAA only discourage Us airliners over the Syrian route and does not ban the route. The risks is lower for rebels to use medium range SAMs as Russia is on the side of Bashar unless NATO supply ISIL and the syrian rebels with medium range SAMS which is unlikely.

So this is the world forum dicussion you use as ammo to justify your name calling in the Malaysian forum..

This person has his lips planted and stuck to the cheeks of Malaysia Airlines. He is a die-hard ally which I appreciate. But his ability to see what makes sense and what doesn't are as screwed as the airline's. Good to have some loyalist to the grave but enough of trying to be so defensive when common sense dictates otherwise. So sad...

No, it went right across Syria as can be seen in the pic below. And regardless on whether this route was approved by ICAO or not...if not a single other airline is using that route because they deem it too dangerous and your airline just suffered from a horrible crash due to a rocket, flying across such a country is really the very last thing any airline under that circumstances should do.

The airline is already in the headlines because of 2 crashes and the important thing isn't how dangerous flying such a route is, but how dangerous it is perceived in the mindset of most customers. And the vast majority of people right now don't feel comfortable at all flying above such a region. This is really a PR nightmare for Malaysian Airlines.
