AirAsia X to expand flights
By Presenna NambiarPublished: 2010/04/06



Long-haul budget carrier AirAsia X will focus on growing flight frequencies to existing destinations in India, Melbourne and Perth this year.

"It has been challenging, (trying to get) new routes, so we are adding even more flights to destinations such as Melbourne and Perth," AirAsia X chief executive officer Azran Osman-Rani said.

AirAsia X has been lobbying for the Sydney and Seoul routes for more than a year now.

According to a news report, the low-cost carrier (LCC)'s plan to fly to both capitals by June this year were dashed when it did not get a formal word on the issue from the government.

"We have asked for the rights to fly to Jeddah too, due to demands by our customers, but that has also been held back," Azran said.

AirAsia X, which will accept delivery of three more A330s this year, will deploy them to the two Australian cities, with the absence of the new routes.

One of the airline's top priorities this year will be to get more rights to fly into Mumbai.

"In order for it to make economic sense, we need at least daily flights to Mumbai. We will wait for the next bilateral meeting to bring the matter up with the Indian government," Azran said.

AirAsia X will start flying to Mumbai in May, and is allowed to fly four times a week.

Azran was speaking after launching AirAsia X's new seat configuration for its aircraft, which involves the introduction of flatbed premium seats, which is said to be a first for a low-cost carrier.

AirAsia X will spend RM10 million for the refurbishment of each plane. The refurbishment will allow the airline's A330 to have a seat configuration of 12 flatbed premium and 365 economy seats.

The new configurations for the airline's A340 is 18 flatbed seats and 309 economy seats. The airline currently owns eight Airbus aircraft.

In conjunction with the launch, AirAsia X is offering a "Premium Seat Promotion" to all Citibank credit card holders in Malaysia.

On offer are flights from Kuala Lumpur to Perth, from RM999 one way, and Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne from RM1,499 one way.

The offer is available exclusively online for booking from April 6 to April 8 2010, for the travel period between April 12 2010 and February 13 2011.

MAS improves baggage handling
Published: Tuesday April 6, 2010 MYT 5:42:00 PM

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines improved its baggage handling last year, reducing missing incidents to 3.3% per 1,000 passengers.

MAS airport operations senior general manager Yusop Jaridi, in a statement Tuesday, said the achivement was fairly better than the industry benchmark of 3.4%.

He said mishandled baggages per 1,000 passengers was significantly low at 2.4%, compared with 10.8% of the Association of European Airlines (AEA).

Constant communication between the company and ground-handlers such as Malaysia Airports Berhad and other airport authorities, as well as customers, resulted in the improvement, he added.

More closed-circuit television cameras would be installed at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport to enhance the overall security of baggage there, he added.

CEO: AirAsia X will add flights to Melbourne and Perth
Tuesday April 6, 2010

SEPANG: AirAsia X will operate flights to Melbourne and Perth, with three more Airbus A330 aircraft coming in, as securing routes to Seoul and Sydney is a challenge.

Currently, it is using six A330 and two A340 aircraft.

“For some reason we are not privileged enough to get some routes. So, we will be adding more flights to Perth and Melbourne and keep pushing Mumbai and New Delhi routes in 2010,” said chief executive officer Azran Osman-Rani.

AirAsia X will service the New Delhi route in August.

“However, that doesn’t mean AirAsia X is dropping those routes from its plan, we still want to fly to Seoul, Sydney, Jeddah and to one city in Japan as there is huge demand.

“So, the guys next door are not going to run away from competition as we will keep throwing in more flights in the current routes,” he told reporters after unveiling the budget airline’s premium “Lie-Flat Bed” seats at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal yesterday.

As for Mumbai, Azran said AirAsia X had the rights to fly four times a week to the Indian city and was pursuing three more landing rights as only then would the route be economically viable.

“We hope to secure the rights within this year. Singapore Airlines operates four flights to Mumbai daily, meaning Malaysia is losing out,” he said. — Bernama

On possible code-sharing arrangements with other budget airlines, Azran said it did not make sense to do code-sharing as with online booking, travellers could do it themselves. — Bernama

MAS to serve 5 more China destinations
Published: 2010/04/12

Malaysia Airlines (MAS) (3786) passengers can now fly to five more destinations in China besides the six already served by the airline.

MAS senior general manager (network & revenue management) Dr Amin Khan, in a statement yesterday named the new destinations as Chengdu, Wuhan, Guilin, Nanning and Changsha.

The six destinations already served are Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, Kunming, Xiamen and Hong Kong.

He said the new destinations were added on through a code-share arrangement between MAS and China Southern Airlines, adding that passengers could fly into Ghangzhou and connect to the five new destinations.
"It's even easier now for our customers to travel to China. The expansion of our partnership with China Southern enables our customers to fly to 95 destinations from Guangzhou and 38 from Beijing.

"Customers will also enjoy seamless and hassle-free services as they will be able to connect directly to their final destination with the 'through check-in' services offered," he said.

Amin Khan said that with the economic recovery, more customers were flying to China whereby the load for the existing six destinations was in the region of 75 per cent.

He said customers could also enjoy the comfort of new planes when Malaysia Airlines starts deploying its new A330-300 aircraft for these routes early next year.

He said that from Kuala Lumpur, MAS flies seven times weekly to Guangzhou and Beijing, 14 times weekly to Shanghai and Hong Kong and three times weekly to Kunming and Xiamen.

China Southern Airlines, he said, offered flights 14 times weekly from Guangzhou to Chengdu and Wuhan and seven times weekly from Guangzhou to Guilin, Changsha and Nanning. - Bernama

MAS banking on regional destinations
Published: 2010/04/14

Malaysian Airline System Bhd (MAS) is confident that its new Asean and Asia Pacific destinations will strengthen the company's financial standing by year end.

Managing Director Datuk Tengku Azmil Zahruddin Raja Abdul Aziz said flights to these destinations like China and India had shown an increase in the number of passengers, especially tourists. Those to Europe and United States, meanwhile, were still not encouraging.

"Hopefully by year end, the economic situation will recover and return to normal so that flights to various destinations worldwide can be expanded again," he told reporters after a function here today.

He said things seemed to be better this year after a difficult period due to the global economic crisis. With the number of tourists flying to various destinations in Asia Pacific showing an increase, "this is good for us," he said.

Tengku Azmil said the new destinations that MAS was presently studying, would promise good returns but it did not necessarily mean a significant increase in revenue.

"I am confident the destinations to be selected in these regions will give MAS profits," he said and added that the new destinations would be announced soon. -- Bernama

MAS Airbus A380 delivery delayed to 2012
Published: 2010/04/30

MALAYSIAN Airline System Bhd said the beginning of deliveries for its Airbus SAS A380 superjumbos had been delayed for a second time at the manufacturer’s request.

The first aircraft is now expected in the first half of 2012, MAS chief executive officer Tengku Azmil Zahruddin said in an e-mail to Bloomberg. The plane is the world’s largest passenger aircraft.

MAS originally expected the first of six A380s to arrive in Kuala Lumpur in January next year. Last November, Airbus SAS delayed that until the third-quarter of 2011. The carrier has no current plans to order more A380s and has ordered 55 Boeing Co 737-800s and as many as 25 Airbus A330-300s, Tengku Azmil said.

“The A380s will complement these aircraft to support our future network plans,” he said.
Airbus, the world’s biggest maker of commercial aircraft, began deliveries of the A380 model in 2007 after running about two years late because of difficulty with cabin wiring. The company has spent at least 18 billion euros ($23.8 billion) developing the plane, or 50 per cent more than originally projected, and has struggled in meeting demands for features such as showers, enclosed suites and custom lighting.

Airbus spokesman Sean Lee was not immediately available for comment when telephoned by Bloomberg today.

MAS rose 1.4 per cent to RM2.16 at 9:22 a.m. in Kuala Lumpur. The carrier has dropped 2.4 per cent this year. - Bloomberg

Seriously? AirAsia X's Economy Class (especially the newer planes) have no PTV while it's "Business Class" is the SAME seat as the Airfrance Premium Economy and it costs more even.

AirAsia gets new terminal
AFP

Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia said on Monday it would move to a new low-cost terminal at Kuala Lumpur's international airport by March 2012, a year later than planned.

But AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes said he was 'thrilled' with an agreement struck with Malaysia's airport authorities after a long-running battle over the design and facilities. 'We are very happy with the design, it has taken in a lot of our input,' Mr Fernandes told reporters. 'We think that with this, a large part of our battle to make Malaysia the biggest hub of Asia is over.' AirAsia, which was launched in 2001 with just two planes, is now the region's fourth-biggest carrier with 25 million passengers a year. Mr Fernandes said the current low-cost carrier terminal, which opened in 2006, had a capacity to handle 15 million passengers annually while the new terminal would have a capacity of 30 million.

As part of the agreement with operators Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad there will be parking bays for 76 aircraft and AirAsia's headquarters will be located next to the terminal building.

Mr Fernandes said the carrier also planned to introduce flights this year to the Maldives, where his Tune Hotel business has been invited to build six budget hotels.

Looks like they used economy seats for small regional jets like CRJ's because they are smaller I think for the 3-3-3 lay-out. The seats of the new business class are the same as Egyptair's new 777-300ER business class and updated Garuda Indonesia's A330's Seats are looking good! The older economy class seat looked more modern IMO.

I have this experience before where AirAsia or AirAsia X ticket costs more than premium airlines like MAS, SQ, Qantas, Cathay...

Well, fair enough... if you really want to travel cheap... you need to book like 1 year ahead... if not, why should you pay premium airline price for budget flight...

MAS defers GDS differential fee
Published: 2010/05/10

MALAYSIA Airlines (MAS) has agreed to defer the implementation of the differential fee for bookings done on non-Abacus global distribution system (GDS).

The fee was supposed to be effective May 15 but the move, announced without consultations with the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (Matta), was opposed by its members.

In a joint statement today, Matta and MAS said they had met and would work together to resolve the matter.

MAS Senior General Manager, Datuk Bernard Francis, said the carrier would make another attempt to negotiate with the GDS providers.

"Travel agents are an integral part of our business and we want to ensure that it is a win-win situation for both sides. We recognise that we should have communicated the rationale behind the new booking fee and for this, we apologise to our travel agent partners," he said.

Under the now deferred ruling, MAS tickets issued through non-Abacus GDS by travel agents will be charged US$3 per sector.

Matta President, Datuk Mohd Khalid Harun, said the association had a good dialogue with MAS and the implementation of the differential fee would be deferred.

AirAsia starts flying toTeheran in July
Published: 2010/05/14
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz0ntWm76gF

AIRASIA (5099)will be flying to Teheran, Iran, from July onwards, expanding its range of destinations in the Middle East.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said this will make the airline the only low-cost carrier to serve the region.

He said the flights, which will run five times a week, was consistent with the government's aim to strengthen greater air links with the Middle East.

"In the future and subject to market demands, we hope to establish greater air links with the Arab world and take advantage of the enormous economic potential the Middle East countries offer."
Malaysia Airlines currently flies to eight Arab countries including Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman and Lebanon at a frequency of 33 times a week, including 21 routes under the MAS codeshare policy.

"We currently have Air Service Agreements with 11 Arab countries. Of the 11, we have liberal traffic rights or no restrictions on passenger capacity, frequency and aircraft type in six countries.

The countries with liberal traffic rights are namely Bahrain, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen.

"It is the government's wish that we continue to promote Malaysia as an important destination for Middle Eastern tourists," he told reporters in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Earlier, Ong launched the Marhaba Golden Card, a discount card targetted at Arab tourists.

The card provides users with discounts and promotions in some 200 retail outlets and restaurants and 10 hotels.

The hotels include several in Kuala Lumpur and Langkawi while the retail outlets cover a variety of products such as electrical goods, watches and cameras.

The discount card is an initiative under the Marhaba Programme which was launched in 2009 and managed by IMAF Sdn Bhd, a locally-based Arab company.

Ong said the success of the Marhaba Programme is proof of the growth in the country's tourism industry.

"The expectations of the increasing number of Arab tourists have also become more complex.

"New and unconventional methods are needed to give these tourists a more comfortable stay and to ensure that they return," he said.

Now you can pay AirAsia in any currency
Friday May 14, 2010

PETALING JAYA: AirAsia customers can now buy air tickets in their currency of choice after the low-cost carrier launched a multi-currency online sales platform.

AirAsia Group chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes said the enhanced sales platform would take away the uncertainty of exchange rates fluctuation for guests, making the purchase of flights more convenient, straightforward and transparent.

“We don't want our guests to have surprises when they receive their credit card statements at the end of the month,” Fernandes said in a statement.

The platform will enable guests to get instant pricing in five foreign currencies - US, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australian dollars and the British pound - and is the first Asian low-cost carrier to adopt the system.

The platform used by AirAsia, FXmicropay, is a cash management and merchant acquiring service offered by The Royal Bank of Scotland.

It supports over 60 currencies and AirAsia plans to accommodate other currencies in the future.

Guests with credit cards issued for the currencies may purchase flights on AirAsia from anywhere in the world at www.airasia.com.

In Kuala Lumpur, Transport Minister announced that AirAsia would start flying to Teheran, Iran, five times a week beginning July.

“This will bring more tourists from the region to Malaysia, hence further boosting the country's tourism industry,” he said after launching the Marhaba Golden Card here yesterday.
