HMSHost to tap F&B business in Malaysian airports
By Hamisah Hamid Published: 2008/03/20
BusinessTimes



US-BASED HMSHost Corp, which is the biggest food and beverage (F&B) operator at the KL International Airport (KLIA), plans to expand into other airports in the country.

HMSHost Asia-Pacific managing director Suredj Autar said if there is an opportunity, the company will bid for concession to operate F&B outlets at the local airports.

"There is no specific airport at this stage. We are looking at all airports. Kuching and Kota Kinabalu (airports) are coming up and we want to work with Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB)," he told Malaysian media in Hyderabad last Saturday.

HMSHost, a subsidiary of Italy-based Autogrill S.p.A, operates 3,000 stores in 120 airports in over 30 countries. Autogrill, listed on the Milan Stock Exchange, is the world's largest operator in the travel dining sector.

HMSHost operations are strong in the US and Europe.

Autar said since last year the company has started to focus on the Asia-Pacific region, clinching concessions in countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia and India.

The company started operating at the KLIA in 1998, investing US$4 million (RM12.68 million). It operates 14 F&B outlets at the airport, including the low-cost carrier terminal.

"We invested more as time went on. We do a good job and have ongoing promotional programmes," he said.

In India, HMSHost has concessions in the Bangalore airport and the newly-opened Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad, in which MAHB has an 11 per cent stake.

The company has invested over US$8 million (RM25.36 million) in Bangalore and Hyderabad.

"We see the Indian market as a growth market," said Autar.

HMSHost expects to register US$6 million (RM19 million) in revenue in the first four years of operation at RGIA and to break even latest by the second year of operation.

Autogrill, which has over 250 licensed and proprietary brands, derives more than 90 per cent of its business from outlets in airport terminals and motorway service areas.

Autogrill is 57 per cent-owned by the Edizione Holding investment vehicle of the Benetton family.

AirAsia X to go international from KKIA
Saturday May 3, 2008, TheStar

KOTA KINABALU: Budget carrier AirAsia X may operate international flights out of the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) in two years’ time, its managing director Datuk Tony Fernandes said.

He said Sabah’s geographic central location between Japan, China and Australia made KKIA an obvious choice as another hub for AirAsia X.

However, there were various conditions which had to be fulfilled before the budget carrier could use the airport and they include having more direct air links between the state capital and regional destinations, said Fernandes, who is also AirAsia group chief executive officer.

For a start, AirAsia will re-establish its Kota Kinabalu-Bangkok flights and is keen on getting its air services between Kota Kinabalu and Singapore going.

“Ideally, we would have liked the Kota Kinabalu-Singapore flights launched yesterday. But this is now in the hands of the Government,” he said after the launching of AirAsia’s services between Kota Kinabalu and Jakarta as well as Bali by Chief Minister Datuk Musa Aman here yesterday.

Musa said the state government was keen on seeing AirAsia start direct air services between Kota Kinabalu and Singapore.

Fernandes said improvements were needed at KKIA’s low-cost carrier terminal, which he described as “bursting at the seams”.

“At times, we have difficulty finding a place to park our aircraft because of the limited space there,” he said, adding that AirAsia had turned down Malaysia Airport Bhd’s suggestion for the airline to relocate to KKIA’s new main terminal.

AirAsia lifts Sabah tourism profile
By Jaswinder Kaur Published: 2008/05/03,BusinessTimes

LEADING low-cost carrier AirAsia yesterday heightened Sabah's position as a premier tourism destination following the launch of direct flights from Kota Kinabalu to Denpasar in Bali and Jakarta.

With four weekly flights to each of the destinations with a flying time of between two and three hours, passengers no longer have to transit in Kuala Lumpur or other regional airports in order to travel between Sabah and the two Indonesian cities.

The Kota Kinabalu-Jakarta route started operations on March 30 while return flights to Denpasar commenced yesterday.

AirAsia group chief executive officer Datuk Tony Fernandes said the two new routes would draw more inbound international tourist traffic from Bali and Jakarta to Kota Kinabalu.

The latest initiative brings to five the number of international routes the airline now serves from its hub in Kota Kinabalu. The other foreign destinations are Shenzhen and Macau in China and Clark in Manila.

Fernandes said the Kota Kinabalu-Bangkok route, which was suspended, will be reopened once several matters, including cost, were ironed out.

He said the airline hopes to start flying to Singapore soon and it is also keen to serve Australian cities from Kota Kinabalu, but that plans for the long-haul flights to places like Sydney may take two years to materialise.

"Sabah sits in between countries like Australia (in the south) and Korea, China and Japan (in the north). There has been some phenomenal growth, but similar to long-term plans, we will look at certain destinations under the second phase of plans.

"By geographic location, air linkages play a crucial role in Sabah and it is vital for AirAsia to play its role to spearhead Sabah as the gateway for trade, investment and tourism as envisioned under the Sabah Development Corridor," he said yesterday.

Fernandes also paid tribute to the Sabah state government, in particular Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman, for believing in the airline's potential when it was just starting out.

ONE-STOP TOURISM INFO CENTRE AT KKIA
9th May, 2008, New Sabah Times

KOTA KINABALU: A one-stop tourism information centre will be set up at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport’s (KKIA) Terminal One in September, Deputy State Director of Tourism Malaysia Mohd Akbal Setia said yesterday.

Speaking to reporters after launching the Sutera Harbour Information Centre here, he said the one-stop centre will provide information on tourism sights and sites, accommodation and transportation.

“The information centre will be manned by knowledgeable personnel assigned to disseminate the required particulars to our tourists. This will ensure that tourists have a better idea of what to expect, what to do and where to go when they touch down here,” he said, adding that this will help the tourism industry tremendously.

Mohd Akbal said the existing information centre at Terminal Two is already being used extensively by tourists. “As soon as they touch down in that terminal, they visit the information centre to acquire whatever information they need, so I believe the centre is very useful and functional for tourists, be it domestic or international,” he said.

On the launch of the Sutera Harbour Information Centre, he said this is a positive move by the hotel as it does not only disseminate information on its properties and services but also helps tourists to acquire other information as well.

“I believe they also disseminate information on tourism sites in Sabah, so they are helping the tourism sector here tremendously,” he said, adding other establishments involved in the hospitality industry should follow Sutera Harbour’s example.

Meanwhile, Sutera Harbour Resort Chief Operating Officer Ravindran Kathiravelu said the centre, which has been open to the public for the last two months, offers several services besides details on the resort and tourism sites in the state.

“Our tourists can also make bookings for accommodation and other arrangements for Sutera Sanctuary Lodges, our island resort and the Sutera Harbour Resort,” he said, adding that tourists can just walk in or place their booking from the centre, sited in the middle of the city. The Sutera Harbour Information Centre is open from 9am to 6pm daily from Monday to Friday and 9am to 4pm on Saturday.

WCT 1Q net profit surges 78%
by Yong Min Wei, 16 May 2008 11:26 AM, THEEDGEDAILY

KUALA LUMPUR: WCT Engineering Bhd’s net profit has increased 78% to RM66.3 million for its first quarter ended March 31, 2008 (1QFY08), from RM37.2 million a year earlier on the back of its Middle East construction activities.

For the quarter under review, its revenue rose 67% to RM920.3 million from RM550.72 million, while basic earnings per share was up 57.5% to 7.37 sen from 4.68 sen previously.

WCT said in a statement that the company managed to achieve better overall results for the financial period despite a moderate slowdown in the residential property market and cost increases in the construction industry.

WCT has established itself in the Middle East with the completion of the F1 circuit in Bahrain at record time in 2004. Since then, it has gone on to win several projects there including the construction of the F1 circuit in Abu Dhabi. Apart from Bahrain and Abu Dhabi, WCT has also won projects in Qatar and Dubai.

On the local front, among its bigger projects that it has landed is the RM720 million job to upgrade the Kota Kinabalu Airport.

On its segment profit from operation, WCT said the bulk came from civil engineering and construction while the balance came from property development, trading and investment properties.

During the quarter, WCT incorporated a new wholly owned subsidiary, WCT (S) Pte Ltd in Singapore with a issued and paid-up capital of S$1 (approximately RM2.30). It also established a 70%-owned subsidiary, Allied WCT LLC, which was incorporated in Oman with an issued and paid-up capital of 250,000 riyal (approximately RM2.47 million).

A final dividend in respect of FY07 of 4.5 sen per share less tax will be payable on June 18, 2008 upon approval at its annual general meeting on June 3.

WCT added it was confident of a better financial performance for the remaining period of the current financial year ending Dec 31, 2008. WCT shares rose 10 sen to close at RM3.52 yesterday.

AirAsia to operate from KK international terminal
Friday May 23, 2008 MYT 6:09:58 PM, TheStar

KOTA KINABALU: Low cost budget carrier AirAsia will have to operate from the international airport terminal here after May next year despite their appeals to stay on at Terminal Two.

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Lajim Ukin said that they would cease operating at the airport's Terminal Two complex in Tanjung Aru and move to the main airport complex that is currently being upgraded.

"All airlines, whether local or international, will use the main terminal block as soon it is ready for operations," Lajim said Friday after visiting the RM1.4bil Kota Kinabalu International Airport upgrading works here.

Asked if AirAsia had agreed to move out of Terminal Two to the main terminal once it is ready, Lajim said that they had more or less agreed following a series of meetings chaired by officials from the Transport Ministry.

"They have held discussions and there should be no problem with it," Lajim said, adding that the current Terminal Two would be a dedicated cargo terminal.

"The move to house all airlines operations under one roof is practical and would benefit travellers whether locals or foreigners," Lajim said, adding that the current Terminal Two would be converted into a dedicated cargo terminal.

Lajim said that AirAsia has flights originating from Kota Kinabalu to various international destinations and the ministry feels that the main terminal with all its facilities could be used as their hub.

On the progress of the airport expansion and refurbishment, he said the main terminal should be ready by May 20, 2009 with partial operations beginning in July this year.
