Hong Kong Chep Lap Kok International Airport

Quote:
The airport was built on a largely artificial island reclaimed from Chek Lap Kok and Lam Chau.
The two former islands that were levelled comprise about 25% of the surface area of the airport's 12.55 kmē platform.
It is connected to the northern side of Lantau Island near the historic village of Tung Chung, now expanded into a new town.
Land reclamation for the airport added nearly 1% to the entirety of Hong Kong's surface area. It replaced the former Hong Kong International Airport
(popularly known by its former name Kai Tak Airport),
which was located in the Kowloon City area with a single runway extending into Kowloon Bay close to the urban built-up areas.

Construction of the new airport was only part of the Airport Core Programme, which also involved construction of new road and rail links to the airport,
with associated bridges and tunnels, and major land reclamation projects on both Hong Kong Island and in Kowloon.
The project is the most expensive airport project ever, according to Guinness World Records. Construction of the new airport was voted as one of the
Top 10 Construction Achievements of the 20th Century at the ConExpo conference in 1999.

On-time flights, service ease pain of travel-poll

SINGAPORE, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Good service, edible food and on-time departures were on a list of what business travellers in Asia like about air travel although the whole experience was voted as being less pleasant this year in a survey.

Half the passengers polled in Finance Asia magazine's 2008 business travel survey said business travel was less pleasant this year, up from 48 percent in 2007.

The majority of respondents travelled first or business class, but with 60 percent facing shrinking travel budgets, over a third found themselves squeezed into economy class more often.

"The most frequent comment from our respondents was how much they appreciated the basics. On-time flights, free upgrades and edible food were passengers' most common compliments," said the survey, published in Finance Asia's November issue.

"All airlines had their fair share of complaints. Delays, inattentive flight attendants, lost luggage, missed connections and turbulence topped this year's list. Horror stories included spilled soup and food poisoning in business class."

The magazine's survey involved just over 450 respondents, the majority of whom travelled business or first class and spent at least 20 nights in a hotel this year. Voting ended in September.

The magazine said the drop in business and first class travel would have serious consequences for the travel industry globally, as well as in the Asia-Pacific, with the International Air Transport Association predicting regional airlines' profitability will fall to $300 million this year, from $900 million in 2007.

Singapore Airlines was voted Asia's best for business and first class travel, while Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok airport was chosen as the region's top airport, with Singapore's Changi coming in second.

Cathay Pacific airline's Hong Kong airport lounges were picked as the best, the survey showed.

"Despite airline passenger service's downward trajectory, respondents said they appreciated when airlines offered little courtesies -- a power adaptor after arrival, showers and ground transport after delays, a box of chocolates for switching seats," the magazine said.

For business accommodation, the Shangri-la was voted Asia's best hotel chain, while the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok was the top hotel, followed by Singapore's Ritz-Carlton Millenia.

For those business travellers dreading the prospect of yet another flight, Finance Asia had the following advice: "Perhaps it's best to resign yourself to the notion that travel (and life) is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get," it said.

KL International Airport

Kuala Lumpur International Airport (IATA: KUL) commonly known as KLIA is one of Asia's major aviation hubs, along with Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Bangkok and Incheon.

It is situated in Sepang district, in the south of the state of Selangor, about 50 kilometres (31 mi) from the capital city, Kuala Lumpur. The airport was built in 1998 at a cost of some US$3.5 billion. Adjacent to the airport is the Sepang F1 Circuit.

With the airport site spanning 100 km2, it is one of the largest airport sites in the world. It is built on a piece of agricultural land and required no demolition of private property.
The initial master plan of KLIA involves constructing 5 runways, and 2 terminals accompanied by 2 satellite terminals for each terminal over three phases. Only one main terminal and one satellite terminal (linked with Aerotrain) with a combined 60 contact piers are completed today to accommodate 35 million passengers.

Ultimately, the airport will be able to handle 100 million passengers per annum when all 3 phases are implemented.

KLIA also hosts one of Asia's first low-cost carrier terminal, and is now the busiest single terminal at KLIA. The low-cost carrier terminal is home to Asia's largest budget carrier - AirAsia.

Plans are underway to build a new permanent terminal for the carrier to accommodate up to 40 million passengers by 2013.

In 2007, it was ranked as the 13th busiest airport in the world by "international passenger traffic", and is one of Asia's busiest airport where that year it has handled 26,938,970 passengers.

It was ranked 5th World's Best Airport in 2007 and 4th best in 2008 by Skytrax. KLIA has been continously honoured as the Best Airport for the 15-25 million passengers category by the International Airport COuncil.
