Ready on time
19 August, 2008 Daily Express, Sabah, Malaysia



Kota Kinabalu: A SECTION of the newly-completed flyover near the Kota Kinabalu International Airport which was open to motorists since Saturday night to coincide with the opening of the RM720 million new wing of Terminal One today (Tuesday).

Work on the facility initially caused a bottleneck, inconveniencing road users and dust pollution. However, traffic congestion is expected to ease despite the projected increase in the number of arrivals through KKIA, the nation's second largest airport.

Meanwhile, the 1.2 km-long Lintas junction flyover near the KKIA is expected to be fully completed by the end of next month, according to Global Upline Sdn Bhd, the contractor entrusted with the work.

Its Adviser, Tan Sri Ting Pek King, who inspected the site together with Global Upline Managing Director Datuk Mohamad Daniel Abong on Monday, pointed out that the full completion of the flyover next month would see Global Upline completing the work about 15 months ahead of schedule.

He said he was aware of the inconvenience faced by motorists plying the stretch and assured that the company is working very hard to complete the work as soon as possible. He also expects all other work such as widening of the road in Tanjung Aru and installation of streetlights to be completed by the end of September.

Ting said it was befitting for the section of the flyover to be opened during the Merdeka month "as a present to the public". Inset: Ting inspecting the project yesterday.

RM20m more for flyover: CM
19 August, 2008 Daily Express, Sabah, Malaysia



Kota Kinabalu: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman said Sabah will apply for an additional allocation of about RM20 million from the Federal Government to finance the completion of the proposed flyover that will enable direct access to the Kota Kinabalu International Airport's (KKIA) Terminal One from the City area.

Musa disclosed this after officially opening a section (from Putatan heading towards the City) of the Jalan Lintas junction flyover near the KKIA Terminal One to motorists, Tuesday.

Adviser of Global Upline Sdn Bhd, the contractor responsible for both the flyovers, Tan Sri Ting Pek King, said piling works on the two-lane flyovers that would directly connect the KKIA with the City area (Jalan Mat Salleh in Tanjung Aru) had commenced.

Meanwhile, Musa commended Global Upline on the fast completion on the section of the Jalan Lintas junction flyover, saying it would be a welcome relief to road users, especially those living in Putatan and its surrounding areas.

He said he was happy with the work done by Global Upline, adding that the company had once again shown that not only could it complete projects ahead of schedule but also without compromising on quality.

According to Ting, the Jalan Lintas junction flyover was expected to be fully completed by end September or about 15 months ahead of schedule, adding that that work on the Lintas junction flyover began in February, this year.

Also present at the symbolic opening were Deputy Chief Ministers Datuk Yahya Hussin and Datuk Raymond Tan, Mayor Datuk Iliyas Ibrahim, Global Upline's Managing Director Datuk Mohamad Danel Abong and State's Public Works Deputy Director John Anthony.

Meanwhile, the transfer of operations from the old airport building to the new KKIA Terminal 1 has so far gone well.

Malaysia Airports Berhad General Manager, Abdul Rahman Karim, said operations began quite well at KKIA Terminal 1 on Tuesday aside from a slight delay in the first scheduled departure from the new airport.

"There was a slight delay to the first flight, MH2637 to Kuala Lumpur at 6.20am. A fault in the communication line prevented us from transmitting our flight plans to Kuala Lumpur, causing a 20-minute delay to the flight," said Abdul Rahman.

He was speaking after handing souvenirs to passengers at the airport's departure hall here, Tuesday.

The new KKIA Terminal 1 has 64 check-in counters for international and domestic flights, 17 aircraft parking bays capable of accommodating wide and narrow body aircraft and can handle 3,200 passengers per peak hour.

Its array of facilities includes a total of seven luggage x-ray machines, 36 Immigration counters and six baggage carousels.

The new RM720 million KKIA Terminal 1 is expected to be fully completed in May 2009.

KKIA Prepares To Handle Aircraft Crash Emergency

KOTA KINABALU - Malaysia Airports conducted an aircraft crash practice at Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) today to test and evaluate the effectiveness of Airport Emergency Procedure (AEP) for aircraft emergencies at this airport and also to ensure all agencies at the airport are always well prepared in case of aircraft crash.

Besides that, the practice was also to test the response of other support agencies such as Medical Service, Jabatan Bomba & Penyelamat Malaysia, Department of Civil Aviation (DCA), Polis DiRaja Malaysia (PDRM), Airlines, Civil Defence Department, Marine Department, Water Work Department, Sabah Electricity Sdn. Bhd (SESB), Armed Forces Fire Brigade and other related agencies.

The practice started at 10.00am and ended at around 12.00pm. All parties concerned, especially the management and staff of Malaysia Airports Sdn. Bhd (MASB) including 100 volunteers who acted as casualties were involved in this practice.

Aznan Othman, Senior Airport Manager KKIA said: "This practice is important to ensure all agencies are aware and well trained on their role in case of aircraft crash, which will ensure all actions are taken smoothly and correctly, minimizing panic and maximizing confident."

Aznan added: "Malaysia Airports would like to thank all agencies which participated in this exercise, and hope this drill will equip them with relevant skills and knowledge required to handle such incidents."

This practice is also in compliance with International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and DCA requirement for all airports in Malaysia to conduct a full-scale crash practice once in every two years. Apart from the full-scale crash practice requirement, the airports were also required to conduct an annual Emergency Evacuation Exercise at the terminal building.

KKIA received its MS ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System from SIRIM and Aerodrome Certification from DCA in July 2007. The aircraft crash practice was also a requirement of both the ISO and Aerodrome certifications.

AirAsia's Kota Kinabalu-Labuan Flight To Boost Economic Activities
September 06, 2008 18:31 PM

LABUAN, Sept 6 (Bernama) -- The soon-to-be launched new domestic route, Kota Kinabalu-Labuan, by AirAsia Bhd will help to boost economic activities on the island.

Consumer Association of Sabah and Labuan (CASH) president Datuk Patrick Sindu said the consumers, especially those with businesses, had been facing difficulties travelling between Kota Kinabalu and Labuan due to limited flights by national carrier Malaysia Airlines (MAS).

"The move by the airline company should have been implemented long ago. Travellers have to use the ferry to travel between Labuan and Kota Kinabalu which takes about three hours," he told Bernama today.

AirAsia's chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes last Thursday announced that AirAsia would launch a new domestic route, Kota Kinabalu-Labuan, beginning this Sept 26.

The low-cost airline said the daily flight would increase air connectivity in Sabah and provide an added entry point to get into Kota Kinabalu, the main gateway to Sabah.

He said the air linkage provided by AirAsia has someway assisted to open various economic and business opportunities since it launched the flight in Sabah six years ago.

The fares for new routes start from as low as RM9.00, excluding airport taxes, fuel surcharges and fees, and are applicable for one-way travel only.
