Senai Airport expects to be back in the black by 2010
By Sharen Kaur Published: 2008/08/18
BusinessTimes

SENAI Airport Terminal Services Sdn Bhd (SATS), which holds a 50-year concession to maintain, operate and develop the Senai International Airport in Johor, expects to return to the black by 2010 and be debt-free in 10 years.

It made a net loss of RM25 million in the year to June 30 2008. It also has outstanding loans of about RM300 million as at July 31 2008.

SATS general manager for finance, retail and commercial development Chan Kwai Yew said while the airport itself was profitable, its loss was due to interest payments on the loan.

The loan was taken to buy 1,120ha of plantation land adjacent to Senai Airport in 2006.

He said the loan will be paid over 10 years. This will come from the long-term lease of land at Senai Aviation Park and Free Zone, rental income from cargo agent warehouses at its Cargo Village, and the money it makes from operating the airport.

SATS will reduce its net loss to below RM20 million in 2009, Chan told Business Times in an interview in Kuala Lumpur.

"But we are optimistic in turning around the company in two years, as we would have completed the current developments at Senai Airport and leased out land on a long-term basis to investors," he said.

SATS is developing 180ha of land at Senai Airport for some RM200 million. This includes extending and widening the runway, and adding taxiways by the end of this year.

It is investing RM45 million to build fencing, taxiways and other facilities at the 60.8ha free zone.

Qimonda, a German memory chip manufacturer, has leased 10ha of land for 25 years, Chan said.

"We are selective on the players coming in. We want manufacturers or cargo players that can produce products to export via freighters," Chan said.

It is also investing RM25 million to develop a 20ha aviation park for a three-year lease to flying and aviation club operators who want to build maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), fixed based operation, clubs and training schools there.

SATS' major investment is to develop the Aero Mall over 20ha for RM93 million. The mall will be an extension to the existing terminal where its space will be almost quadrupled to 108,000 sq ft by the end of 2009.

It also has 4ha of land fronting the airport. The plan is to build a budget hotel, low-rise apartments with offices and retail facilities from 2009. It is in talks with Johor investors to develop the properties, Chan said.

More health tourists seen with airport’s opening
Thursday September 11, 2008

MALACCA: Several private hospitals here are preparing for a rise in health tourists early next year after the Batu Berendam Airport is opened in December.

Among the steps taken is the outsourcing of ambulance services to Maha Mas Medic Service Sdn Bhd that specialises in medical equipment and training nationwide.

Women’s Affairs, Family Development and Health Committee chairman Norpipah Abdol said that private hospitals had to take measures to ensure patients were provided professional service.

“With the airport’s opening, we anticipate more tourists coming for treatment at several private hospitals here.

“There will be cases where they will require the use of ambulances,” she told reporters after witnessing a signing ceremony between Maha Mas and Mahkota Medical Centre (MMC) here recently.

In 2004, 18,295 health tourists sought treatment here with the number increasing to 42,085 in the following year.

In 2006, the figure rose to 55,929 while in 2007 it increased to 76, 201.

Meanwhile, MMC chief executive officer Francis Lim said the hospital received an average of 50,000 foreign patients and 150,000 locals a year.

“The boat ride from Jambi to Malacca takes more than 24 hours. With the new airport, we expect more patients,” he said.

He added that 97% of the foreign patients were from Indonesia while the remaining 3% were from Singapore, Brunei and other neigbouring countries.

Maha Mas chief operations officer Abdul Saleem Said Mohamad said the firm would supply two ambulances as backup for MMC.

Malaysian 1st International Airport

Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport
Subang, Selangor

Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, LTSAAS (IATA: SZB, ICAO: WMSA) (formerly Subang International Airport), often called Subang Airport, is an airport located in Subang, Malaysia, and primarily serves general aviation and some turboprop domestic flights. Although plans existed to convert the airport into a low-cost carrier hub, the change was opposed by Subang Jaya residents. Until the 1998 opening of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang, Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport served as Kuala Lumpur's primary airport. Subang Airport is currently the hubs of Berjaya Air and Firefly.



The airport officially was opened to traffic on August 30th, 1965, and had the longest runway (3.7km long, 45m wide - runway 15 - 33) in Southeast Asia. By the 1990s, the airport had three terminals - Terminal 1 for international flights, Terminal 2 for Singapore - KL shuttle flights by Singapore Airlines and Malaysia Airlines, and Terminal 3 for domestic flights. Toward the end of service, the airport suffered at least two major fires that forced traffic to be diverted to other airports. By the end of 1997, Subang Airport handled 15.8 million passengers.[citation needed]

In July 2002, AirAsia began flying from KLIA, and in 2004, AirAsia considered utilising the airport as a primary hub in Malaysia. However, the plan was rejected and the Malaysian government now plans to turn the airport into an international conference centre.. Since Firefly started operations in the airport, AirAsia has been lobbying the government to allow AirAsia to use Subang Airport. As of December 2007, the government still maintains its policy of only allowing general aviation and turbo-prop flights out of Subang Airport.

Terminal 3 Transformation Plan

On 4 December 2007, Subang SkyPark Sdn Bhd announce a RM 300 million plan to transform the Terminal 3 building into an ultra-modern general and corporate aviation hub. The plan includes upgrading the terminal, creation of regional aviation center and finally the establishment of a commercial nexus. Under an agreement with Malaysia Airports, Subang Skypark will serve private aviation while Malaysia Airports will serve Berjaya Air and Firefly Airlines. Subang Skypark recently signed a lease agreement with Malaysia Airports for the land in the Airport in Langkawi.

On the next day, VistaJet, a business jet service provider, has announced that it will use the airport as a base of operations in Malaysia. It has chosen Terminal 3, which is being operated by Subang Skypark to be the hub in Asia.

The operator announce that construction works for a 9000 square feet, five star executive lounge begins in February 2008. The construction works was awarded to ArcRadius Sdn Bhd. It is expected that the lounge works will be done by end of March 2008. The transformation plans also calls for a construction of two 42 meters by 47 meters maintenance, repair and overhaul hangars and ten 36 meter by 36 meter parking hangars. The construction of the MRO hangars will complete by end of 2008 while two of the ten parking hangars will complete by end of 2009.

On August 8, 2008, VistaJet Holding SA started operations from the airport. It provides private jet travel from Malaysia to anywhere in the world.

Airlines and destinations

While Terminal 1 has been demolished, Terminal 2 is currently used for the management of Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad.

Following are the commercial airlines that serve Terminal 3:
- Berjaya Air (Koh Samui, Pangkor, Redang, Tioman)
- Malaysia Airlines Training
Firefly (Johor Bahru [begins October 26, 2008], Koh Samui [begins October 26, 2008], Kota Bharu, Kuala Terengganu, Langkawi (seasonal), Pekanbaru [begins October 26, 2008], Penang)
- Transmile Air Services (international and domestic freight) Cargo

Subang Skypark T3 refurbishment to cost RM35m
18 Apr 2008 2:30 PM THEEDGEDAILY

KUALA LUMPUR: The refurbishment works of SkyPark Subang at Terminal Three (T3) is estimated to cost about RM35 million, according to Subang Skypark Sdn Bhd.

In a statement yesterday, its director of corporate strategy Fariz Hashim said the refurbishment was expected to be completed within six months and community travellers would enjoy an organised approach within the airport.

The refurbishment, covering 157,000 square feet of airport floor space, would see new interiors and facilities for the comfort and convenience of community travellers of FireFly Sdn Bhd and Berjaya Air Sdn Bhd, the firm said.

“SkyPark Subang will be approachable from most corners of the Klang Valley within 20 to 30 minutes and community travellers will find SkyPark a real treat with the given rejuvenation of the airport,” Fariz said.

Big plans for Terminal 3
Friday May 2, 2008 By TAN KARR WEI TheStar



Future vision: An artist's impression of the refurbished terminal.

LOW-cost airline passengers at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah (SAAS) Airport in Subang can look forward to a refurbished Terminal 3 by the end of September this year.

The terminal is currently in a dismal state with no proper signboards to direct passengers to the check-in counters located further inside the terminal building.

With random retail and food and beverage outlets operating inside, it looks more like a neglected shopping complex than an airport terminal.

It is a free-for-all outside the terminal currently, with cars parked along the two lanes meant for passenger drop-off and pick-up.

Subang SkyPark Sdn Bhd corporate strategy director Mohd Fariz Hashim said the RM35mil upgrading works on the 15-year-old terminal would start this month.

“We want to complete it in five months.Terminal 3 operates round the clock so we can’t close it completely. The various sections would be closed in phases,” said Fariz.

The upgrading works are timely, with more travellers expected to use the airport for low-cost carriers like FireFly and Berjaya Air.

Besides the refurbishment of the interior, the front of the building would also see a facade uplift to give it a more modern look.

For the convenience of passengers, check-in counters would be located at the front of the building.

There would be a separate departure lounge to accommodate the more frequent daily international flights from places like Koh Samui and Singapore.

The retail and food outlets would be placed in a more systematic manner and additional retail space would be made available.

“We’re trying to get established food outlets and cafes to operate at Terminal 3. Besides serving the passengers, we also want to attract residents in the surrounding neighbourhood to shop and dine here,” he said.

In addition to extending the mezzanine floor, a new retail annexe with about 500sqm of space on each floor would be built adjacent to the existing building.

There are plans to build a commercial centre at the open-air car park opposite the terminal.

“That is still in the conceptualisation stage so for the time being, we’re going to get the car park operator to tidy up the place, put in lighting and beef up security. Many people don’t want to park there due to lack of security ,” Fariz said.

In addition to restoration works, Terminal 3 would see the construction of two MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) hangars and ten hangars for corporate and private jets.

“The ten hangars would be built in stages, depending on demand from owners of these jets,” Fariz said.

To cope with the additional traffic volume, Fariz said Jalan Lapangan Terbang Subang road in front of Terminal 3 is expected to be widened and would eventually connect to Sungai Buloh.

For the first two weeks of May, the public can expect hoardings to be put up around the terminal as refurbishment works begin.

Malaysia International Aerospace Centre (MIAC)

The Terminal 3 refurbishment is part of a master plan to realise the government’s goal of being a regional player in the aerospace industry by 2015.

This National Aerospace Blueprint was launched in 1997 by the then Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd (MAHB) corporate planning senior general manager Datuk Mahat Samah said when the airport operations moved to KLIA, they had to find another use for it.

“The facilities here are tremendous. Not many airports have a (Boeing) 747 runway and it is underutilised now. Subang has huge potential because of that,” Mahat said.

With the convergence of the different aerospace sectors (general aviation, maintenance, general aviation, helicopter centre, military and manufacturing) into one area, there are also plans to set up the Universiti Kuala Lumpur Malaysian Institute of Aviation Technology (MIAT) campus at Subang.

The campus would be the development nearest to the Ara Damansara residence (refer to map) but Mahat said it was just a training institution with no flying school so noise would not be an issue.

“The aim is to train the required human capital to service the aerospace industry at MIAC,” he said.

He said there were also plans to move the air cargo company which is currently operating from Subang to KLIA by 2012.

“Even the MAHB headquarters would be moved to KLIA so that the space they are currently occupying at Terminal 2 can make way for other operations,” Mahat said.

SkyPark to bring new life to Subang airport
By Presenna Nambiar Published: 2008/08/07 BusinessTimes



SKYPARK FBO Malaysia Sdn Bhd, a newly set up fixed base operator (FBO) at the Subang airport, expects to chart RM3 million to RM5 million in revenue in its first year of operation.

The company, which is part of the RM350 million redevelopment plan for Subang airport, is the result of a joint venture between Switzerland-based ExecuJet Aviation Group and Australia's Hawker Pacific.

It offers services for private and corporate aircraft such as fuelling, repairs, parking, tie-down and hangar storage.

"The introduction of Swiss VistaJet Holding SA's charter services and the establishment of the SkyPark FBO (in Malaysia) takes us further forward in our journey towards setting up the region's first general and corporate aviation hub with world-class standard of products, services, facilities and amenities," Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said at the launch of SkyPark FBO in Subang yesterday.

He said it is the aim of the government to develop the Malaysia International Aerospace Centre into a pulsating and thriving centre of private aviation, the largest and finest in Asean, if not Asia.

VistaJet is SkyPark FBO's first customer to offer private jet charter services with an initial commitment of two dedicated aircraft in Subang.

There are plans to bring in another aircraft in 2009.

"Subang has been quiet for the last 10 years and we plan to put it back on the world map," Subang SkyPark Sdn Bhd executive director Datuk Ravindran Menon said.

He said the first phase of the redevelopment of Subang Airport is almost complete with the launch of SkyPark FBO and the RM35 million refurbishment of Terminal 3 which will be completed in October this year.

Work on Phase 2 of the three-part redevelopment of the terminal is to start next month. It will entail the creation of a regional aviation centre with maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities, a dedicated hangar and corporate aviation-related industries.

"The FBO operations will be a significant investment for both Hawker Pacific and ExecuJet, but it will be the investment that is put into the development of the MRO facility that would be enormous," Hawker Pacific chief executive officer Alan Smith said.

He said a typical maintenance facility would involve between US$5 million and US$10 million (RM16.4 million and RM32.8 million) in investments, without taking into account the investment in training.

Hawker Pacific and ExecuJet plan to individually operate MRO hangars in their own products and services, with aircraft parking services.

Aero Mall, hi-tech park to boost Senai airport
Monday June 16, 2008, By FARIK ZOLKEPLI,TheStar



Senai Airport

THE construction of the Aero Mall shopping complex and the Senai High Tech Park will help the Senai International Airport to become a logistics hub in five years.

Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said development projects conducted by Senai Aiport Terminal Services Sdn Bhd (SATS) would increase the number of passengers and cargo at the airport and thus benefit Iskandar Malaysia as well.

“The airport will be the first in the country to have a shopping complex equipped with a commercial centre. It will include a hotel, bank, restaurant and entertainment facilities,” he said.
Abdul Ghani said Aero Mall would have its own airport concept.

“With this, the airport will not only function as a location for airplanes to arrive and depart but will also become a high-tech hub for passengers as well as cargo to the rest of the world,” he told pressmen after launching the Aero Mall at the airport in Johor Baru.

The construction of the RM70mil Aero Mall is expected to be completed by December 2009.

SATS is also investing RM300mil to upgrade the main facilities at the airport such as increasing the length of the runways, equipping the runways with a new system and signal lights, as well as constructing runways catering to big aircraft.

“The upgrade is expected to take two years and once it is ready, the airport will be able to cater to big aircraft, both passengers and cargo,” Abdul Ghani said.

Meanwhile, SATS chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Sidik Shaik Osman said SATS would build the high-tech park on 800ha located beside the airport and economic zone.

“This will enable the park to become an interesting destination for high-tech sector investments. The park will be equipped with broadband and stable electrical supply without interruption,” he said.

SATS to come under MMC fold under RM1.95b deal
Tuesday August 5, 2008 By LOONG TSE MIN TheStar

MMC also launches takeover offer for AIRB

PETALING JAYA: Low-profile tycoon Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Albukhary, who controls MMC Corp Bhd, is injecting Senai Airport Terminal Services Sdn Bhd (SATS) into the group in a RM1.95bil deal.

Under the exercise announced yesterday, MMC would finance the acquisition with the issuance of 696.43 million new shares at RM2.80 each. This would transfer ownership of SATS, which is reportedly privately held by Syed Mokhtar, to MMC.

In another deal, MMC launched a takeover of low-profile water treatment company Aliran Ihsan Resources Bhd (AIRB), offering 90 sen cash per share. The offer is below AIRB's last traded market price of 93 sen on Friday.

The two deals are not inter-conditional, so should one fail the other deal can still go ahead.

For the first deal, a senior analyst is uncertain if the injection of SATS into MMC would be beneficial to the listed group.

“It depends on whether MMC will be able to develop synergies with its other freight and logistics assets it owns in Johor,” he said.

The MMC group has two main ports in its stable – Port of Tanjung Pelepas (in southwest Johor) and Johor Port (in Pasir Gudang).

It is also involved in land-based logistics via subsidiary JP Logistics Sdn Bhd.

As for the control of AIRB, it is an expansion into the water treatment business, in which the group is already engaged.

The senior analyst felt that 90 sen a share would be a good acquisition price for MMC.

AIRB currently operates 16 water treatment plants in Johor, which supply about 70% of the state's water needs.

MMC proposes to extend a voluntary takeover offer to acquire all AIRB shares and its redeemable convertible unsecured loan stock for 90 sen each.

Based on 222.18 million AIRB shares and 42.96 million RCULS in issue at Oct 17, 2007, the total value of the offer – assuming 100% acceptance – is about RM238.62mil.

However, the audited net tangible assets of AIRB at June 30, 2007 of RM271.15mil are higher than the expected offer cost.

For the financial year ended June 30, 2007 the company posted net profit of RM31.4mil.

Since the offer is below the last traded price, retail investors are not expected to take up the offer.

“The stake may have already been negotiated with sellers among AIRB shareholders. MMC will likely not take more than a 51% stake in AIRB,” he said.

Published: 2008/05/30

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has allocated RM400 million for its capital expenditure (capex) this year, its senior general manager of finance Faizal Mansor said.

He said a big chunk of the amount will be used for its retail optimisation plan.

"The amount has been approved by the board of directors," he told reporters after the company's annual general meeting in Sepang yesterday.

On the performance of its retail business, Faizal said it has been recording an annual growth of 15 to 20 per cent in the past few years.

The airport operator also expects to see a higher contribution from its advertising division at about RM35 to RM40 million this year compared with RM12 to RM15 million last year.

On the outlook for the company this year, MAHB managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad Abdul Majid said the company was aiming for a revenue growth of 10 per cent.

For the financial year ended December 31, 2007, MAHB recorded a revenue of RM1.38 billion compared with RM1.15 billion previously. Its pre-tax profit jumped to RM403.6 million from RM263.3 million previously.

MAHB expects five new airlines to operate at the KL International Airport (KLIA) this year.

Currently 53 international airlines fly into KLIA. - Bernama

MAHB eyes more overseas ventures
Published: 2008/07/15

Malaysia Airports is hoping to win a concession to run at least one overseas international airport late this year or early next year

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is scouting for more overseas ventures. It now manages and operates 43 airports across Malaysia and abroad.

MAHB human resources general manager Ahmad Zuber Abdul said the company is hoping to secure at least one more overseas international airport concession later this year or in early 2009.

He said MAHB had received several enquiries from other countries to enlist its expertise to manage and operate their airports.

MAHB is extending its services to five international airports, 16 domestic airports, 18 short take-off and landing ports (STOL ports) in Malaysia and four overseas international airports, he said.

The overseas international airports are Rajiv Ghandi International Airport in Hyderabad, Indira Ghandi International Airport in New Delhi, Astana International Airport in Kazakhstan and Sabiha Gokcen International Airport in Turkey.

MAHB has won a 20-year concession to manage Turkey’s Sabiha Gokcen International Airport, its latest international venture, he told reporters after launching MAHB’s promoting intelligence, nurturing talent, advocating responsibility (Pintar) programme at Sekolah Kebangsaan Pokok Sena in Tasek Gelugor.


Ahmad Zuber said MAHB had gained recognition and confidence of its international partners mainly in its ability in handling between 15 and 25 million passengers per annum at the KL International Airport.

Besides managing airports, MAHB had ventured into other areas such as hotel services, a retailing arm selling duty-free goods and managing the Sepang International Circuit. — Bernama
