AirAsia Sedia Penerbangan Harian Laluan Kuching-Macau Mulai 15 Mei


KUALA LUMPUR, 23 April (Bernama) -- AirAsia Bhd menambah kekerapan perkhidmatanya di laluan Macau dari Kuching dengan memulakan penerbangan harian mulai 15 Mei, 2008, dalam usaha meningkatkan hubungan antarabangsa bandar raya itu.

Dalam kenyataan di sini hari ini, AirAsia berkata ia kini menawarkan tiga penerbangan seminggu ke Macau.

"Berdasarkan purata muatan sebanyak 80 peratus sejak memulakan perkhidmatan itu, syarikat penerbangan berkenaan kini bersedia memenuhi permintaan yang lebih tinggi dari kalangan penduduk tempatan dan pelancong dari Kuching sepanjang tahun ini dengan kapasiti yang bertambah," katanya.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif kumpulan Datuk Tony Fernandes berkata Kuching sudah bersedia untuk menerima kehadiran pelancong berbelanja kecil global memandangkan terdapat banyak potensi pelancongan dari segi kepalbagaian budaya di Sarawak.

"Kami berharap mengembangkan hab itu bagi menyokong terminal kos rendah di negeri itu," katanya.

AirAsia berkata ia akan meningkatkan hubungan laluan Pantai Timur dengan memulakan laluan Kuala Lumpur-Kuantan pada 1 Jun, 2008.

berita harian TODAY

AIRASIA Bhd akan meningkatkan kekerapan penerbangan dari Kuching ke Macau daripada tiga kali seminggu kepada penerbangan harian bermula 15 Mei ini bagi meningkatkan lagi peranan bandar raya itu sebagai hab utamanya di Malaysia Timur.

Penerbangan Kuching-Macau dilancarkan 15 November lalu, menjadikan AirAsia satu-satunya syarikat penerbangan yang menyediakan perkhidmatan antarabangsa bagi laluan berkenaan.

Ketua Eksekutif Kumpulan AirAsia, Datuk Tony Fernandes, berkata langkah menyediakan penerbangan harian bagi laluan berkenaan juga bertujuan memenuhi peningkatan penumpang tempatan dan pelancong asing.



“Sejak pelancarannya, laluan ini mencatatkan kadar purata muatan penumpang kira-kira 80 peratus,” katanya dalam kenyataan di Sepang, semalam.

Beliau berkata, perkhidmatan Kuching-Macau akan menggunakan pesawat Airbus A320 baru dengan kapasiti 180 tempat duduk.

Katanya, Kuching juga berpotensi menjadi tempat tumpuan pelancong bajet kerana Sarawak mempunyai banyak tempat tarikan pelancong disebabkan kepelbagaian budayanya.

“Dengan jumlah penumpang yang menggalakkan, kami berharap dapat memajukan lagi Kuching menjadi hab utama AirAsia di Malaysia Timur ditambah dengan sokongan kerajaan untuk mendirikan terminal syarikat penerbangan tambang murah di negeri itu.

“Langkah berkenaan juga boleh meningkatkan peranan negeri itu sebagai pintu masuk utama pelancong asing, selain menjadi pangkalan pelepasan rakyat negeri itu ke beberapa bandar raya utama di rantau ini,” katanya.

Selain Macau, destinasi antarabangsa AirAsia dari Kuching adalah Bali dan Jakarta.

Destinasi domestik dari Kuching membabitkan tujuh stesen iaitu ke Pulau Pinang, Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu, Miri, Bintulu dan Sibu, menjadikan jumlah penerbangan keseluruhan dari Kuching termasuk ke destinasi antarabangsa sebanyak 163 penerbangan seminggu.

Sempena pelancaran penerbangan harian Kuching-Macau, syarikat itu menawarkan harga tambang promosi bermula RM49 untuk tempahan yang dibuat dari sekarang sehingga 27 April ini bagi perjalanan antara 11 Jun hingga 25 September 2008.

AirAsia turut mengumumkan akan meningkatkan jumlah penerbangan dari Kuala Lumpur ke Pantai Timur dengan menyediakan perkhidmatan harian Kuala Lumpur-Kuantan bermula 1 Jun ini dengan harga tiket serendah RM1.

Harga tiket promosi itu ditawarkan bagi tempahan yang dibuat antara 22 hingga 30 April ini bagi perjalanan antara 1 Jun hingga 11 Januari 2009.


Ia adalah bagi perjalanan sehala, tidak termasuk bayaran cukai lapangan terbang serta surcaj bahan api.

Carrefour opened on 26 April - earlier than everyone else. Medium sized (just below 10,000sq ft, I was told). Overall, the whole mall was still in a mess. Still got alot to be done to catch the 30th April soft opening. Understand that 80% of the shops will be opened then.

Many shops at finishing touches stage, but others just only started to renovate.

Except for where Carrefour is, the floors are dirty and the environment is very dusty.

Inside, it doesn't looked as big as it does on the outside. But it's still quite nice.

Will try to post some pics later (after the excitement cools down). The area is crazily congested. Won't want to go near there for at least 1 week

I hav to go east coast mall today. so many people there. carrefour take 2 storey of the building at 1st and 2nd floor.

tp macam pelik sket la sbb bhgn groceries and wt market is situated at 2nd floor. 1st floor tu pulak bahagian DIY, pakaian & elektrik.

so macam agak menysahkan sbb biasa kalau pegi shopin, kita akan naik tingkat atas dulu & then baru pegi tingkat bawah. so kalau pegi carrefour east coast mall, anda kenalah pusing2 dulu kat tingkat bawah & 1st floor, then lastly baru la pegi shopin barabg dapur kat 2nd floor carrefour. (kalau ada barang dapur nak beli la).

Thats got to do with shoppers traffic diversion strategy. Because most shoppers tend to do groceries, they divert the traffic to move up so that the upper floor ll get better patronage. Takes alamanda putrajaya for example, the carrefour upper floor is dry market but looks quite deserted. So at this kuantan branch, they do the reverse in the hope the shoppers ll continue to do shopping at lower floor. After all, we human being are tend to be lazy to going up instead moving down for ease.

This is similar to Carrefour at Melaka:

Second Floor





Third Floor

PARKSON BUKA CAWANGAN KETIGA DI KUANTAN

berita harian. TODAY

Parkson buka 5 cawangan baru
Oleh Sariha Mohd Ali

Pelaksanaan ECER dorong pusat beli-belah labur RM75 juta untuk kembang sayap

PARKSON Corporation Sdn Bhd (Parkson), antara gedung beli-belah terbesar di Malaysia, memperuntukkan pelaburan kira-kira RM75 juta untuk membuka lima cawangan baru sepanjang tahun ini, termasuk tiga daripadanya beroperasi di Pantai Timur.

MKetua Pegawai Operasinya, Toh Peng Koon, berkata satu daripada cawangan di Pantai Timur dibuka secara rasmi di East Coast all (ECM) di Kuantan, semalam, yang juga cawangan ke-33 di negara ini dan terbesar di Pantai Timur.

Katanya, dua cawangan lain akan dibuka di Kuala Terengganu akhir Julai ini dan di Kota Bharu selepas itu, manakala dua lagi dirancang dibuka di Lembah Klang.

Beliau berkata, syarikat turut mengkaji kemungkinan membuka cawangan di Alor Star, Kedah dan Perlis pada masa depan berdasarkan permintaan pasaran, selain di bandar kecil seluruh negara.

"Parkson ECM yang membabitkan pelaburan RM15 juta itu bakal menjadi tumpuan golongan pertengahan dan atasan berbelanja kerana sebahagian besar barang ditawarkan adalah produk berjenama.

"Pelaksanaan pelan pembangunan Wilayah Ekonomi Pantai Timur (ECER) juga menjadi faktor melonjakkan lagi permintaan terhadap gedung beli-belah kami di sebelah sini (Pantai Timur)," katanya sambil menjangkakan syarikat mampu memperoleh pendapatan RM40 juta bagi tahun kewangan 2008/2009.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika ditemui selepas pembukaan rasmi Parkson ECM di Kuantan, semalam. Turut hadir, Pengurus Besar Parkson, Raymond Teo.

Pembukaan Parkson ECM adalah cawangan ketiga di Kuantan, selepas Parkson di Kuantan Plaza dan Parkson Grand di Berjaya Megamall.

Toh berkata, keputusan membuka Parkson ECM berikutan keyakinan syarikat terhadap kemampuan ECM menarik kedatangan orang ramai khususnya pelanggan berkunjung ke situ, berikutan lokasinya strategik iaitu di tengah-tengah pusat bandar.

Katanya, walaupun jualan di Parkson tahun ini dijangka sedikit merosot berbanding tahun lalu berikutan kenaikan kos sara hidup, ia tidak menjejaskan prestasi syarikat keseluruhannya.

Beliau berkata, pembukaan Parkson ECM menyediakan peluang kerja kepada 400 penduduk tempatan.

"Sempena pembukaan cawangan ini, kami menyediakan pelbagai tawaran promosi termasuk hadiah kepada pelanggan bagi tempoh enam minggu," katanya.

"Parkson juga sedia bekerjasama dengan pengurusan ECM untuk menganjurkan promosi atau kegiatan berkaitan pelancongan dalam usaha menarik kedatangan lebih ramai pengunjung ke pusat beli belah ini," katanya.

Sementara itu, Toh berkata, Taman Kejiranan di Jalan Teluk Sisek di Kuantan, menjadi taman angkat Parkson yang keenam di negara ini.

"Kita ada taman angkat di Petaling Jaya, Kajang, Ipoh, Seremban dan Melaka dengan setiap satu membabitkan kos kira-kira RM20,000," katanya.

Beliau berkata, sumbangan kewangan termasuk menyediakan kemudahan permainan kanak-kanak itu bertujuan mewujudkan suasana harmoni di kawasan berkenaan.

Selain itu, katanya, kakitangan Parkson juga secara sukarela memastikan keadaan taman itu sentiasa bersih dan terpelihara.

Carrefour comes to Kuantan

NST today

KUANTAN: Supermarker chain Carrefour Malaysia opened its first store in the east coast here yesterday.

The two-level hypermarket is located at the East Coast Mall, the new shopping complex here.

It covers an area of 70,000 square feet, providing modern shopping facilities including those for the wheelchair-bound.

It is the company's 14th store in the country.

Anyone noticed? All escalators in ECM are not the normal "step" type but the inclined travelators type. This type of escalators takes up slightly more space, but management should be commended for making ECM a mall friendly to the physically challenged. I think this is a first. Kudos to ECM!

Can anyone tell me if the hotel beyond the Hyatt Regency at Telok Chempadak ever got finished? It was going to be a Sheraton hotel. I was working on it in 1999, but the economic downturn of the time meant the finance dried up before it was completed. Any news?
