The whole aviation sector should be opened up to competition! Finally Singapore - Malaysia routes are starting to be liberalised, paying $400 SGD currently with MH/SQ for a return trip between KL and Singapore, a 40 minute flight is absurd! Its one of the most expensive flights I've ever been on, the pricing is still from a bygone era.

Can't wait to fly Tiger / AirAsia!

Russia keen on direct MAS flights to Moscow
16-09-2006
The Star


ST PETERSBURG: Russia wants Malaysia Airlines (MAS) to introduce direct flights from Malaysia to its capital.

Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said foreign airlines, while keen to expand to Malaysia, wanted to know what plans MAS had in terms of flying to their home countries.

กงI explained that MAS is short of aircraft and is presently involved in route rationalisation,กจ he said, adding that he had assured the airlines and tour operators that all these problems would be resolved soon.

Presently there are 14 flights weekly between KL International Airport (KLIA) and Moscow, operated by Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Emirates Airlines and Qatar Airlines.

The minister was here and in Moscow on a five-day visit, which ended yesterday, to promote Visit Malaysia Year 2007.

Tengku Adnan said Aeroflot, which stopped flights to Malaysia 10 years ago would be flying direct to KLIA from Moscow beginning next year.

กงAnd Fin Air plans to have flights between St Petersburg to Helsinki before flying to KLIA,กจ he said yesterday.

These moves, he added, would enable the country to achieve its target of bringing in 40,000 Russian visitors next year.

Aeroflot Agrees To Have Direct Flights To Malaysia
15-09-2006
Bernama
By Norhayati Muda


ST. PETERSBURG (Russia), Sept 15 (Bernama) -- Russian airline, Aeroflot, is expected to offer direct flights from Moscow to Kuala Lumpur next year.

Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the assurance was given by the company's chairman and chief executive officer Valery Okulov at their meeting Thursday.

"She assured us that they would have the service when they get to receive the Boeing and Airbus aircraft which they had ordered," he told Malaysian journalists after launching the Visit Malaysia Year 2007 promotion here Thursday night.

Tengku Adnan said Aeroflot ceased its flights to Malaysia more than 10 years ago due to congestion at the then Subang International Airport, now known as the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport.

"But, we have told them about the KL International Airport and they agreed to resume the direct flights," he said and expressed doubts there would be problems for Aeroflot to be given landing rights in view of Malaysia's "open skies" policy.

Currently, there are 14 flights from Moscow to Kuala Lumpur which are provided by four airlines, the Singapore Airlines, the Thai Airways, Qatar Air and the Emirates airline.

"But they are all transit flights (with stop-over in Kuala Lumpur)," said Tengku Adnan.

With the increase in tourist arrivals from Russia, from 5,799 in 2000 to 8,386 last year, the ministry expects the figure to increase to 20,000 this year.

A total of 7,243 tourist arrivals from Russia had been recorded between January and May this year.

Besides Aeroflot, Tengku Adnan said several other foreign airlines, including Finnair from Finland, had also expressed their intention to have flights to Malaysia.

"Finnair is keen to have flights from St Petersburg-Helsinki-KL and this is a new avenue for us now that the (Malaysian) government is expanding markets to former Soviet Union countries," he added.

Malaysia Airlines to spend $100m on ticket upgrade

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 2 (Reuters) - State-controlled Malaysian Airline System Bhd will spend $100 million over 10 years to revamp its passenger-reservation and ticketing systems, the loss-making national carrier said on Monday.

The revamp plan is part of Malaysia Airlines' turnaround plan and its efforts to stay competitive in the airline industry, the firm said in a stock-exchange statement.

It awarded the revamp contract to Dutch firm SITA NV.

"The new solution is expected to lower unit costs and improve revenue streams, hence better earnings," the carrier said.

AirAsia eyes two new routes to Vietnam after Hanoi: report

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 5, 2006 (AFP) - Pioneering budget carrier AirAsia plans to fly to Ho Chi Minh and Da Nang in Vietnam after launching its maiden direct flight to Hanoi, a report said Thursday.

Group chief executive officer Tony Fernandes said the Malaysian carrier had submitted a proposal to fly to Ho Chi Minh and was also keen to service the Da Nang route.

AirAsia began offering from Wednesday a single Kuala Lumpur-Hanoi-Kuala Lumpur flight daily at 99 ringgit (27 dollars) one way.

Direct flights to Vietnam would attract tourists from the ASEAN region, Europe and the United States, Fernandes said.

He said there was great business potential for budget carriers to fly to Vietnam.

"We have been providing flights from Kuala Lumpur to Hanoi through Bangkok and we have been seeing a lot of foreign tourists using the flights," he was quoted as saying by the Star newspaper.

AirAsia was launched as a budget carrier in December 2001 with just two aircraft. It now offers more than 100 domestic and international flights to Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Cambodia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Perhaps its a confusion of terminology here, aviation lingo is slightly different. Direct flights in aviation means travelling from A -> B -> C, for example all those new airlines coming into Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia such as Kuwait Airways, Aeroflot, even Lufthansa's services are via Bangkok. They are direct flights to Kuala Lumpur but they are via Bangkok, they're new services only in the terms that they are an extension of long established flights from hubs like Bangkok. When airlines use the term non-stop flights that means from A -> B without via a third airport. Globocentric has a point however, it is a boastful ans absurd claim! You can transit further afield in Dubai, New Dehli, Tokyo, Beijing, there aren't just "14 flights provided by 4 airlines", connection from Kuala Lumpur to Moscow can be from a wide variety of third party airports and airlines. You could go to Moscow via Frankfurt, for example. It is an absurd comment!!!

Russian carriers are now expanding aggressively to SE Asia, I think Bangkok and Hanoi are still the best connecting point to Russia

Thailand - Russia direct flights

1. Aeroflot (Bangkok Moscow Sheremetyevo)
2. S7 Airlines (Bangkok Moscow Domodedovo)
3. Thai Airways International (Bangkok- Moscow Domodedovo)
4. Transaero (Bangkok- Moscow Domodedovo) also continue on to St.Petersburg
5. Transaero (Pattaya (Utapao airport) - Moscow)

Vietnam - Russia direct flights

1. Aeroflot (Hanoi - Moscow Sheremetyevo)
2. Vladivostok Avia (Hanoi - Vladivostok)
3. Vietnam Airlines (Hanoi, Saigon - Moscow Domodedovo)
4. Dalavia Far East Airways (Saigon - Khabarovsk)

Malaysia Airlines Yet To Cancel Airbus Order

By Manik Mehta

NEW YORK, Oct 19 (Bernama) -- As the crisis at Airbus Industrie swells, there is considerable uncertainty over delivery of aircraft to a number of airlines, including Singapore Airlines which says it could possibly resort to invoke a clause which allows it to cancel the order.

Singapore Airlines has not ruled out cancellation of its A380 aircraft order should the delivery of the new Airbus superjumbo aircraft be delayed too long.

"If the aircraft delivery is postponed for too long and comes at a time when we do not need them, we could indeed cancel the order," Singapore Airlines' vice president Bey Soo Khiang was quoted as saying in the French newspaper "La Tribune" which maintained that Airbus has not yet given any concrete date for delivery of the nine aircraft ordered by the airline.

But a Singapore Airline spokesman was quick to emphasize that the remarks of the vice president were related to the contractual option allowing the airline to terminate the order in the event of delays.

However, the spokesman said, a final decision had not yet been taken in this regard.

When contacted by phone, an Airbus spokesman told this correspondent that an announcement would soon be made and that "we are in contact with our customers".

The aircraft development problems and delays in delivery of its much-publicized A380 aircraft have hurtled the European aircraft maker Airbus and its parent group EADS into a deep crisis.

The Malaysian national carrier Malaysia Airlines has also placed an order for six aircraft of the A380 type but because the airline is mired in a financial shortfall and is engaged in a drastic cost-cutting effort, the delays by Airbus should actually be a welcome opportunity for the airline which will not immediately have to tap its resources to pool in the money.

However, many aviation analysts in Europe and the United States are wondering why Malaysia Airlines has not completely cancelled the order, particularly because it has discontinued some of its long-haul routes on which the superjumbo could have been deployed.

Some of the airlines that are anxiously waiting for delivery of the aircraft include Emirates (43 aircraft), Singapore Airlines (19), Lufthansa (15), Qantas (12), Air France (10), Federal Express (10 freighters), leasing company ILFC (10), UPS (10), Malaysia Airlines (six), Thai Airways (six), Virgin Atlantic (six), Kingfisher Airlines (five), Korean Air (five), China Southern (five), Etihad Airways (four), and Qatar Airways (two).

A total of 168 aircraft of the A380 type have been ordered.
