Malaysia Airlines wins KLIA award
Published: 2009/06/28

SEPANG, June 27 (Bernama) -- National carrier, Malaysia Airlines was named Airline of the Year for third consecutive years at the Annual KLIA Award here tonight.

AirAsia won the Low-cost Airline of the year Award, while AirAsia Indonesia was given Foreign Airline of the Year Award.

For cargo category, MasKargo won Airline of the Year Award and Korean Air received Foreign Airline of the Year Award.

KLIA Awards, organised by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) offers recognition to 15 different categories of airline and service providers operating in KLIA.

The winners received the award either based on passenger movement, strong growth, good sales performance, international recognition as well as service performance - all based on 2008 performance.

The awards were presented by the guest of honour, Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Robert Lau Hoi Chew.

Also present were MAHB chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman and managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad.

Commenting on the award, Malaysia Airlines executive Director/chief financial officer Datuk Tengku Azmil Zahhruddin Raja Abdul Aziz said: "We are very happy to win the award. We have won the award over the last couple of years.

"Of course Malaysia Airlines and MAHB have symbiotic relationship. Airport doesn't exist without the airlines and airlines do not exist without airport, he told Bernama here after receiving the award on behalf of Malaysia Airlines.

Being the biggest carrier in KLIA, Tengku Azmil said: "We do feel that we have the sense of responsibility to also assist KLIA as a hub," he said.

MAS expects new aircraft in time for global up-turn
Monday June 29 2009

KUALA LUMPUR, June 29 — Malaysia Airlines (MAS) is set to receive its new aircraft in tandem with the recovery in global economy, its executive director/chief financial officer Datuk Tengku Azmil Zahruddin Raja Abdul Aziz said.

He said now was not a good time to take delivery of the aircraft.

“The B737-800 aircraft is expected at end-2010 and the A380 by 2011. So we are expecting to get the aircraft at about the time we are hoping the economy will then start to recover,” he told Bernama at the Annual KLIA Awards ceremony in Sepang last Friday.

At the event, MAS was named ‘Airline of the Year’ for the third consecutive year.

AirAsia won the ‘Low-cost Airline of the Year’ award and AirAsia Indonesia ‘Foreign Airline of the Year’ award.

For cargo category, Malaysia Airlines Cargo Sdn Bhd won ‘Airline of the Year’ award and Korean Air received ‘Foreign Airline of the Year’ award.

KLIA Awards, organised by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd, offers recognition to 15 different categories of airline and service providers operating in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

The winners received the award either based on passenger movement, strong growth, good sales performance, international recognition as well as service performance – all based on 2008 performance.

The awards were presented by Deputy Transport Minister, Datuk Robert Lau Hoi Chew.

Tengku Azmil said all the airline’s plans it had announced earlier were in place.

MAS has launched its global low-fare campaign which would see it selling some six million seats at low fares to stimulate travel demand.

The low fares were only made available for lean flights, in line with the airline’s dual-pricing strategy.

MAS would also hold more than 70 travel fairs globally until 2010 and that the airline’s Stimulus Package, launched earlier this year, has seen sales increased by up to 30 per cent.

On whether the airline will cut its routes, he said: “We haven’t cut routes for a while, (but) we have reduced capacity.

“I think MAS is not the odd one out. Airlines worldwide are reducing capacity.”

He said globally, the capacity cut was about seven to eight per cent although that would be less than the reduction in passenger numbers.

Tengku Azmil said during times like this, MAS wanted to make sure it would remain viable.

“What we are doing is not much different from what other airlines are doing.

“Singapore Airlines (SIA) has cut its flight capacity further due to a fall in demand for air travel,” he said.

Recently, SIA announced it planned to cancel more than 200 flights before year-end, especially in the premium segment. – Bernama

From Tourism Australia:
"Air Asia X increased these services to daily frequencies (Melbourne) on 1 March 2009 and plans to launch daily Sydney services (using its high-density configured A330s) on 26 October 2009."

AirAsia eyes RM500m
By Presenna Nambiar
Published: 2009/07/01

AirAsia Bhd (5099) is looking at raising about RM500 million by placing out up to a fifth of its shares to private investors to pay off some debt, says its chief executive officer.

AirAsia's total debt stood at RM6.9 billion as at the end of March 31 2009.

"Local and foreign investors (demand) drove us (to placing out more shares). There is a huge appetite for our shares, and obviously as an airline, it is always good to have cash. Liquidity is also good in the market now and so we decided on a private placement," AirAsia Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes (pic) said.

He said the budget carrier has yet to hire bankers for the placement and has not decided on whether it will stagger the placement (10 per cent now and another 10 per cent later) or do an outright 20 per cent placement.

This is the second time AirAsia is placing out shares after its initial public offering in 2004.
"If there was concern on AirAsia, I think the prime minister's (Datuk Seri Najib Razak) announcement on wanting to create a level playing field has removed any doubts that equity investors may have had on AirAsia's chances. It is a great environment to raise equity," Fernandes said.

Fernandes was speaking on the sidelines of Invest Malaysia 2009 in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

"It is what I have been asking for, for seven years. Today will really unleash the enormous potential that AirAsia can achieve and we are thrilled by the prime minister's speech," he said in response to Najib's call for more level playing field between GLCs and private firms.

Besides calling for greater competitiveness and performance from GLCs such as those in electricity and airport businesses, Najib also stated that the government will not help GLCs to the detriment of private sector competition.

Fernandes has been lamenting on the protective nature of the aviation industry in Malaysia since the setting up of AirAsia in 2002, starting with the placement of Firefly, a unit of Malaysia Airlines, in Subang, to the aeronautical charges imposed by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd.

He also called for regulation of monopoly industries to ensure that there is transparency in pricing and costing.

Fernandes said the key is not really to have competition within the country but to have competitive industries that can go global and create bigger opportunities.

AirAsia X’s existing investors not taking up AirAsia new shares
Written by Gan Yen Kuan
Wednesday, 01 July 2009 10:57

KUALA LUMPUR: Potential investors buying up to 20% of AirAsia Bhd under the low-cost carrier’s proposed share placement exercise will not be those who have already invested in its sister airline AirAsia X, said AirAsia group chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes.

“No… not the same (investors),” he told The Edge Financial Daily on the sidelines of Invest Malaysia 2009 here yesterday.

Earlier, he told reporters that AirAsia expected to raise up to RM500 million from the proposed share placement, which would be carried out in the next two months, according to a report by the Associated Press.

AirAsia announced on Monday the proposed placement of new shares but no details were given as it had yet to appoint agents to arrange the deal.

Airline business usually invites scepticism particularly in its vulnerability under the current global economic conditions.

But when Fernandes and his counterparts started AirAsia X — a low-cost, long-haul airline — they managed to rope in investors like Virgin group’s Richard Branson, Bahrain-based Manara Consortium and Japan-based Orix Corp.

OSK Research said in a report yesterday that it was not surprised with AirAsia’s proposed share placement.

It noted that the proposal would require shareholders’ approval at an EGM, apart from obtaining approval from the Securities Commission, as the proposed placement exceeded the allowable 10% of issued and paid-up share capital.

The research house has made a hypothetical assumption to assess the impact of a 20% placement on the group’s financial position. Assuming a placement price at a 10% discount to Monday’s closing price of RM1.13, AirAsia might raise some RM490 million from this exercise, it said.

“When backdated to March 31, 2009, the company’s net gearing level may improve from 3.7 times to only 2.7 times as a reduction in net debt will conversely increase shareholders funds,” OSK Research said.

“The equity stake of the company’s major shareholder Tune Air Sdn Bhd may be diluted from 30.7% to 25.6% in the event the entire placement is taken up by third party investors.

“Considering AirAsia’s aggressive aircraft purchases, we believe the exercise may only temporarily reduce the company’s gearing, but the debt level is expected to quickly build up again on the delivery of new aircraft.”

Meanwhile, HwangDBS Vickers Research said the placement would enlarge AirAsia’s share base to 2.85 billion shares, which would potentially dilute the research house’s forecast earnings per share for the company to 4.9 sen (from 5.8 sen previously) in FY09, and to 6.1 sen (from 6.7 sen) in FY10.

AirAsia celebrates inagural KL-Taipei flight
Published: 2009/07/01

AIRASIA'S first flight from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei departed at 10am this morning, carrying 338 guests.

AirAsia's Group Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes said the flight had 88 per cent load, carrying guests which included president of the Malaysian Friendship and Trade Centre in Taipei, Datuk Abdullah Mohd Salleh and AirAsia X CEO, Azran Osman-Rani.

AirAsia also celebrated its inaugural flight from Tapei today with touched down at 8.35pm at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) of the KL International Airport (KLIA) with 335 guests on board.

"The new Kuala Lumpur-Taipei route with five direct flights weekly operated by AirAsia's low-cost long-haul affiliate,
AirAsia X, received a remarkable response from travellers when it opened for sale on April 24, 2009," Fernandes said at the Kuala Lumpur-Taipei inaugural flight celebration to receive AirAsia's first guests from Taipei.

Minister of Transport, Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and Minister of Tourism, Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen were also at the event to welcome the visitors.

According to Fernandes, all promotional seats for the Kuala Lumpur-Taipei flight services offered at RM101 per way were snapped up within 12 hours after the sales announcement, with an estimated 80,000 guests flying the route until the year's end.

"This represents an average load factor of over 80 per cent on the 383-seater Airbus A330," Fernandes said.

Fernandes also said there were no cancellation of flights with the H1N1 flu global epidemic and that sales were up since it abolished its administration fees.

"We are also starting new routes from Miri to Singapore," he said. - Bernama

MAS has comfortable cash level, says CFO
Published: 2009/07/02

MALAYSIA Airlines (MAS) (3786) has no plans of raising cash at this point, says its top official.

"I think if something comes up, then maybe. But at this point, our cash level is comfortable as we are net cash and don't need to raise additional funds," MAS chief financial officer Tengku Azmil Zahruddin told Business Times on the sidelines of Invest Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Meanwhile, managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Idris Jala said forward bookings remain resilient and the current load factor stands at some 69 per cent, up from 56 per cent recorded in its first quarter of 2009.

"We are just worried that if there are any more negative comments on (Influenza A) H1N1 virus, then we will be back to where we don't like to be. Forward bookings are good with the exception of North America. All other regions are equal to last year," he said.
Idris added that the airline was not reducing capacity further for now.
