Malaysia Airports sees Turkey terminal ready by 2010
Published: 2008/05/05 Businesstimes

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd, which operates and manages local and international airports, expects the new terminal building at Turkey's Sabiha Gokcen International Airport to be completed by 2010.

The terminal is being developed by a consortium comprising Malaysia Airports, GMR Infrastructure Ltd and Turkish firm Limak Group.

When completed, the airport will be able to cater for up to 15 million passengers a year.

Malaysia Airports took a minimum equity stake of 20 per cent in the joint venture.

The total concession fee is €1.93 billion (about RM9 billion) and is structured over a 20-year period, with no concession fees payable in the first three years.

Developing the Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen International Airport and placing it among the leading airports in the world will contribute tremendously to travel and tourism in Turkey.

"The new terminal will open a new chapter for Malaysia Airports in its overseas endeavour and will further reinforce our status as one of the most sought-after service providers in the field of airport operations," chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman said in a statement that was released in Kuala Lumpur.

Aris, along with Transport Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat and Malaysia Airports managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad, attended the groundbreaking ceremony last Saturday.

The event was attended by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Malaysia Airports' involvement in the airport officially began on March 19 this year when the implementation agreement for the realisation of the terminal building and its complementaries through a build-operate-transfer Model was signed between the Turkish government and the consortium.

Malaysia Airports' role is to provide expertise in operation and management of the airport.

Sabiha Gokcen International Airport is the second in Istanbul to have two terminals, covering an area of 1,337ha.

When the new terminal is completed, the existing international terminal will be converted to domestic, subsequent to the construction of a new one.

Malaysia Airports' involvement overseas includes the new Hyderabad International Airport and the Delhi Airport in India as well as the Astana Airport in Kazakhstan.

Brokers' View:
Hyderabad airport boost for MAHB

Published: 2008/03/11 BusjinessTimes

Malaysia Airports, which holds an 11 per cent stake in the new airport, has already earned revenue by providing technical advisory services and training

OSK Research Sdn Bhd said the launch of the new Hyderabad International Airport in India on Friday will further cement Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd's (MAHB) growing reputation as an international airport operator of choice.

MAHB holds an 11 per cent stake in the new airport, while the GMR group owns 63 per cent and the Andhra Pradesh government and the Airport Authority of India has 13 per cent each.

"Prior to the opening, MAHB has already earned revenue from the airport by providing technical advisory services and training the personnel for the airport both in India as well as in Malaysia.

"MAHB will continue performing these roles and will also earn investment income from its small stake although this will likely be insignificant upfront," OSK Research senior vice-president Chris Eng wrote in a report yesterday.

Aside from Hyderabad, MAHB also owns a 10 per cent stake in the Delhi International Airport, manages the Astana International Airport in Kazakhstan and has a 20 per cent stake in the building and operation of a new airport terminal at Sabiha Gokcen airport in Turkey.

The research firm is maintaining its forecasts and fair value for MAHB at RM3.72.

"We continue to view MAHB as a defensive stock and even if its financial restructuring were to be possibly delayed to 2009 due to the recent election results, it would only pare down our fair value slightly to RM3.70," said Eng.

Malaysia Airports: Traffic soars 8pc in Jan-Jun
By Presenna Nambiar Published: 2008/08/05 BusinessTimes

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) saw 23.1 million passengers passing through the 39 airports it operates in the country, during the first six months of 2008.

This was an increase of 8.1 per cent from 21.4 million passengers for the same period last year. The growth is also significantly higher than first half 2006-2007's percentage growth of 2.6 per cent.

International Air Transport Association (IATA) director-general Giovanni Bisignani had said that passenger traffic growth worldwide for full year 2008 would at best be 3.9 per cent, as consumers come to terms with higher fares and an uncertain economic outlook.

In a filing to Bursa Malaysia, MAHB said the bulk of passengers went through the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang, with 13.4 million passengers as opposed to 12.5 million for first half 2007.

The increase was mainly contributed by international travellers, which rose by 8.4 per cent to 10.31 million passengers from 9.51 million passengers a year ago.

The number of domestic passengers also rose by 7.9 per cent to 12.7 million in the first six months of 2008.

MAHB warned that a decline in passenger traffic in the fourth quarter of this year is expected, as higher plane ticket fares is likely to curb spending on air travel.

Meanwhile, the 39 airports saw a 5.3 per cent growth in air cargo volume from January to June 2008.

Some 488.8 million kg of cargo were carried by air, against 464.1 million kg a year ago. Aircraft movements also rose by 11.1 per cent to 244,245 for the period.

MAHB expects up to 5.5% passenger growth this year
by Yantoultra Ngui Yichen, 10 Sep 2008 11:54 AM THEEDGEDAILY

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is confident of registering an overall passenger traffic growth of 5% to 5.5% this year despite the slowing global economy that has led to declining travel demand, said its managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad Abdul Majid.

This year’s projected traffic growth is lower than that achieved last year, which came in at about 6.4%, representing 45.18 million passenger movements.

“We have seen good growth for the first seven months of the year. We expect the last five months to still have growth although not as high as in the first seven months and it should average to about 5% to 5.5%,” he said.

Speaking to reporters at a briefing on Routes KL 2008 Forum here yesterday, Bashir added that he was hopeful that more airlines would start operating routes to Kuala Lumpur, especially with the easing of high crude oil prices recently.

“Jetstar, which is a subsidiary airline of Qantas, stopped its flights to KL not because it was not viable. It was because Qantas had a shift of network resulting in Jetstar operating to Bali. Once the airline has more aircraft, we are confident that it will resume its operations here,” he said.

Bashir added that as fuel prices had declined, he hoped some airlines would revise their plans to reduce frequencies.

According to an OSK Research report, for the first half of this year, MAHB posted 7.8% year-on-year (y-o-y) domestic traffic growth while international traffic rose 8.4% y-o-y despite high fuel surcharges and tension between state and federal tourism agencies crimping domestic air traffic growth.

The research house expects MAHB’s full-year domestic traffic growth to increase 5%-5.5% even though it has pared down international growth forecast to 8.5% from 9%, taking into account the capacity cuts among international airlines.

MAHB expects 2,500 delegates, including airport operators and airlines all over the world, to participate in this year’s World Routes Forum — Routes KL 2008. MAHB won a bid over its counterparts in Singapore, Thailand and China to hold the event here for the first time in Asia.

Bashir said MAHB hoped to attract more airlines to fly to Kuala Lumpur but might not achieve the four to five airlines that it previously managed to entice annually following the Routes forum.

MAHB plans better perks for airlines
By Hamisah Hamid Published: 2008/09/11 BusinessTimes



Malaysia Airports will enhance the existing perks of free landing and parking charges, as well as marketing support, but have yet to announce them, says its chief

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) plans to announce better incentives for airlines, managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad says.

He said the existing incentive packages include free landing and parking charges, as well as marketing support.

"We will enhance that programme, but we have yet to announce it," he said during a media briefing on the 14th World Route Development Forum (Routes KL 2008) in Kuala Lumpur yesterday's night.

Bashir also did not say if MAHB will unveil the new incentives during Routes KL next month. Routes is the aviation industry's top annual gathering for airport operators and carriers.

MAHB will be meeting representatives from 230 airlines during Routes KL, which will be held between 12 and 14 October.

A total of 379 airlines and 549 airports have confirmed participation at this year's Routes.

Routes chairman Mike Howarth said airlines are exploring ways on how airports can help them maintain destinations amid costlier fuel.

He said the previous Routes events focused on route planning and new air services opportunities, but this year's event is expected to centre on the role of airports in route development and maintenance process.

However, Howarth said there will also be airlines coming to Routes KL looking to pick up recently dropped or about-to-be-dropped cities. "Some airports will be looking for replacement airlines, possibly offering financial incentives," he said in a statement.

During the 2003 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome outbreak, MAHB gave a 50 per cent discount on landing fees to airlines at the KL International Airport for a year.

MAHB, which initially expected up to five new airlines to operate from Malaysia this year, is now contented with just three.

"We may not achieve the targeted four to five airlines, due mainly to the fuel costs," Bashir said.

However, he is optimistic that there will be new airlines next year. Talks between airports and carriers could take up to five years, he added.

KLIA Wins World's Best Airport Title for Third Consecutive Year
Wednesday, 2 April 2008, 00:00 CDT
By Kamarul Yunus



First Satellite Terminal

SHANGHAI: THE KL International Airport has won the coveted World's Best Airport title (under the 15-25 million passengers per annum category) in the Airport Council International's (ACI) Airport Services Quality Awards 2007, for the third consecutive year.

"It is no mean feat. We have to work hard for it as we have to face strong competitors, especially in this part of the world. We could not have achieved it if not for the support of all agencies operating in the airport," Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said.

Speaking to Malaysian journalists covering the two-day ACI customer services and facilitation conference and Trinity Business forum here yesterday, Bashir said this would be KLIA's last year to compete in the 15-25 million passenger per annum category.


With its expansion plans, the airport will move into the bigger 25-40 million category this year.

"It will be harder as we may compete with the best airports in the world. At the moment, we have to try to benchmark ourselves to keep on par with Incheon Airport of South Korea. Incheon is the current number one airport in this category. Other contenders would probably be Hong Kong and Singapore," he said.

KLIA also improved its ranking for Best Airport Worldwide and Best Airport Asia Pacific by coming in second.

Singapore's Changi Airport was third. The win coincides with Malaysia Airports' 10th anniversary this year.

"We owe this remarkable feat to the collective efforts and commitment of all government agencies, business partners and associates at KLIA for constantly providing unrivalled passenger connectivity, comfort and convenience to our customers," he added.

Ninety airports worldwide participated in the survey for 2007, which was conducted by benchmarking airports' performance on service quality, facilities and passenger feedback.

Malaysia Airports manages and operates 39 airports in Malaysia, out of which five are international and 16 domestic airports.

The national airport operator also manages and operates 16 domestic and 18 short take-off and landing ports. It also has operations in Kazakhstan, India and Turkey.

KKIA’s upgrade on right track
Tuesday December 11, 2007

KOTA KINABALU: The new international airport terminal here is set to open by April and travellers can look forward to less “inconvenience and congestion”.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said Malaysia Airports Bhd planned to use the terminal for boarding and arrivals by Jan 9 before making it fully operational for check-in.

“Once the new terminal is ready, the old terminal will be closed for upgrading,” Chan told reporters during a working visit here yesterday.




Personal inspection: Chan (second from right) checking on the construction
progress of the new airport terminal in Kota Kinabalu yesterday.
Accompanying him are Sabah MCA chief Datuk Edward Khoo (right) and other
VIPs.




The new terminal complex, to be connected with the old one, is among a massive Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) upgrade project involving runway extension and a new low-cost terminal. The RM1.4bil project is scheduled for completion by May 2009.

“We thank the public for bearing with the inconvenience. It is not easy carrying out major upgrading works on an airport that is operational,” Chan said, adding that KKIA is the second busiest airport in the country after KLIA.

The minister said that once completed, the upgraded airport would have state-of-the-art facilities to meet Sabah’s needs.

“Overall, the project is about 8.4% ahead of time though there are some delays in specific areas. But it will not affect the completion date,” he said when thanking the state government for resolving the Sri Tanjung airport squatter problem.

On MAB’s decision to move operations of all airlines to the new terminal once completed in 2009, Chan said AirAsia’s request to remain at Terminal Two would be considered.

“They have written in. We have to hear them out before we make any decision,” he said, adding that the new complex when completed could handle the needs of all airlines and would be convenient in terms of operations.

Penang Airport needs renovation
2008/08/08 NST Online

GEORGE TOWN: Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng is urging the Transport Ministry, through Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd, to speed up renovation works at Penang International Airport.

Lim said the airport's deplorable state was compounded by washrooms in bad condition.

"This does not reflect the airport's status as an international airport. It is important for us to project a good image to visitors and tourists who come here.

"We do not want the state's image to be tarnished just because of this. We are worried that it will be a factor to a decrease in the number of local and foreign visitors coming here," he added.

Transport Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat had earlier stated that the last time renovation works were carried out at the airport was on March 1, 2001, costing RM39.7 million.
They covered expansion works and renovation of the building's terminal

Senai Airport invests RM145m to expand runway
By Sharen Kaur Published: 2008/08/25 BusinessTimes

SENAI Airport Terminal Services Sdn Bhd (SATS), which has a 50-year concession to maintain, operate and develop the Senai International Airport in Johor, is investing RM145 million to lengthen and widen the runway to accommodate wide body aircraft.

It will also add taxiways and supporting electronics such as lighting and instrument landing system at the airport.

SATS general manager for finance, retail and commercial development, Chan Kwai Yew, said the works, financed through loans, will be completed by the end of this year.

"There are three major airlines namely Malaysia Airlines (MAS), AirAsia and Firefly currently making stop-overs at Senai Airport and they are increasing their flights, hence the need to improve the airport complex," he said in an interview.

SATS is forecasting passenger arrivals to grow from 1.6 million currently to three million by 2014.

It is expecting air cargo volume to hit 40,000 tonnes per year by the end of 2009 from 10,000 tonnes per year, with support from international freighters such as Qatar Airways and Airmark.

Belly cargo from passenger airlines like MAS and AirAsia will also contribute to the growth, Chan said.

He said the Aero Mall development at Senai Airport, which commenced this month, will support the expected passenger growth.

SATS is developing the lifestyle mall for RM93 million, which has been earmarked for completion by end-2009.

It will offer a total built-up area of 173,000 sq ft, comprising 50,000 sq ft of new retail lots and 30,000 sq ft of retail area at the open-air piazza.

The mall will more than double passenger capacity at the airport from two million currently to 4.5 million, Chan said.

SATS also plans to spend an additional RM17 million in 2014 to expand the airport airside and departure hall, and upgrade equipment, to meet its target in passenger arrivals.
