Organisations eligible for consideration are Air Navigation Service Providers and Airports handling a minimum of 5 million passengers annually.

Award winners are selected by a neutral and independent Panel of experienced individuals from the aviation industry. An important criterion is the application of the basic policies established by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) for airport and air navigation charges. The criteria serve as guidelines to the Panel, who interpret these policies and assess the relative importance of each aspect cited.

The Eagle Award winners are announced at the IATA Annual General Meeting each year.

IATA coordinates with the winning organisation(s) to capitalise on the public relations opportunity created by the presentation.

IATA Announces Eagle Winners

Kuala Lumpur - The International Air Transport Association (IATA) recognized the outstanding achievements of Vietnam Air Navigation Services Corporation, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, Geneva International Airport and Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad with IATA’s prestigious Eagle Awards.

Eagle Awards honor air navigation service providers (ANSPs) and airports for outstanding performance in customer satisfaction, cost efficiency and continuous improvement. They are based on the recommendations of the independent Eagle Awards Panel.

The awards were presented by Dr. Assad Kotaite, Chairman of the Eagle Awards Panel, in front of 500 top industry leaders gathered for the 65th IATA Annual General Meeting and World Air Transport Summit in Kuala Lumpur.

“Eagle Awards are highly-prized recognitions of airports and ANSPs who strive for excellent service, better cost efficiency and continuous improvement. All parts of the aviation value chain must play their part in meeting the intense challenges of this economic crisis,” said Kotaite. He noted that the panel paid special attention not only to good performance but also to proactive responses to the economic downturn.

"All four winners today have gone beyond the strict and challenging criteria of the Eagle Awards for high service standards and cost efficiency. They have also responded effectively and innovatively to the needs of their airline customers at this time of unprecedented financial turmoil. They put the customer first and delivered value for money. I congratulate all four of this year’s winners for their great achievements. These industry partners are role models for all infrastructure providers," said Giovanni Bisignani, IATA's Director General and CEO.

Most Improved ANSP – Vietnam Air Navigation Services Corporation (VANSCORP)
VANSCORP has invested in modern technology in line with the ICAO Roadmap for Air Traffic Communication, Navigation and Surveillance. “VANSCORP has improved greatly in its 15 year history characterized by a strong culture of reliability, efficiency and customer orientation. In addition to maintaining strong relationships with its airline customers, VANSCORP also takes an active role in regional initiatives,” said Bisignani.

Best ANSP – Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS)
CAAS is widely recognized as a global leader in the efficient implementation and reliable delivery of air traffic control procedures and technologies. It actively engages its customers to understand better the needs of each airline as well as industry trends. “CAAS plays a key leadership role in regional and global air traffic management initiatives by sharing its expertise. It is acknowledged across the industry for its contributions to enhancing safety and efficiency,” said Bisignani.

Most Improved Airport – Geneva International Airport (AIG)
AIG’s sustainable commercial activities have enabled it to maintain reasonable airport charges even as it invested in expansion projects and adapted to new security requirements. AIG found a constructive and fair way of helping airlines during the economic downturn with a US$2.5 million cash back contribution shared among airlines in proportion to their 2008 traffic. “AIG’s commitment to cost-conscious management and partnership with its airline customers makes it a role model for other airports on both a regional and global scale,” said Bisignani.

Best Airport – Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB)
Since opening in 1998, Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), the flagship airport of MAHB, has been a leader in service levels, industry and environmental initiatives, operational improvements and cost efficiency with a strong customer focus. “Sustained by strong commercial revenues, MAHB has maintained some of the lowest aeronautical charges in the world. MAHB responded to the global economic meltdown with a 50% discount on landing charges for two years. This is a magnificent contribution from a great industry partner,” said Bisignani.

Honorable Mentions: The independent panel gave an honorable mention to BULATSA, Bulgaria’s air navigation service provider for its continued improvement in the areas of charges, cost efficiency, service quality and consultation. BULATSA agreed to a five-year pricing plan with significant reductions in en-route charges. In response to the economic crisis, BULATSA reduced en-route charges by 5.5%, which was beyond its original commitment. BULATSA has also made progress in operational areas such as route optimization.

"Congratulations to all the Eagle Award winners. You continue to lead the way in setting the standards for performance, cost efficiency and continuous improvements for others to strive for," said Bisignani.

MAS pushes for more airfare campaigns
Published: Monday June 22, 2009 MYT 5:05:00 PM

PETALING JAYA: Malaysian Airlines System Bhd (MAS) is pushing for more airfare promotion campaigns to boost sales as demand slowed for travel due to an economic recession.

Its managing director Datuk Seri Idris Jala said the airline faced tough operating conditions this year and would find it challenging to surpass last year’s results.

He told reporters Monday following the airline’s AGM and EGM that there was a need to package more attractive promotions to boost sales, which has been falling due to the economic slowdown and the H1N1 pandemic.

Idris said the airline’s load factor in the second-quarter had risen to 66% from 56% in the first-quarter helped by the low fare campaigns.

“ We’ll continue to push sales aggressively and we are planning to offer more than 70 travel fairs globally until 2010,” he said.

Meanwhile, chairman Tan Sri Dr Munir Majid said MAS currently had no intention to lay-off its workers.

MASkargo joins IATA e-freight programme
Published: 2009/06/01

IATA e-freight, an industry-wide initiative involving carriers, freight forwarders, ground handlers, shippers and customs authorities, aims to take the paper out of the air cargo supply chain

MALAYSIA Airlines Cargo Sdn Bhd (MASkargo), the air cargo division of Malaysia Airlines, has teamed up with the Royal Malaysian Customs and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to launch IATA e-freight.

The new IATA e-freight programme eliminates the need to send 13 paper documents with air cargo shipments streamlining processes, improving speed and reliability, and cutting costs.

IATA e-freight became operational between Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai on May 26, with further expansion planned in the coming months to South Korea and the Netherlands.

Facilitated by IATA, IATA e-freight aims to take the paper out of the air cargo supply chain. It is an industry-wide initiative involving carriers, freight forwarders, ground handlers, shippers and customs authorities.

The Malaysia IATA e-freight implementation team, led by MASkargo, started work in February 2009 and delivered IATA e-freight on schedule. Also involved were Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, KLM, DHL Global Forwarding, DB Schenker, the Airfreight Forwarders Association of Malaysia, Penang Freight Forwarders Association, Federation of Malaysia Freight Forwarders, Kuala Lumpur Airport Services and Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd - KLIA Free Zone Authority.

Over the past year, IATA has assessed the readiness of 148 locations worldwide in addition to the original six e-freight sites. Of these, 44 countries, representing 80 per cent of global air-freight volumes, have the appropriate international treaties and high-level customs framework in place to qualify for IATA e-freight.

Malaysia becomes the 20th e-freight location worldwide to deliver paper-free cargo.

MASkargo managing director Shahari Sulaiman said the implementation of the e-freight programme will alleviate its status to be at par with established industry players.

"The e-freight programme, which MASkargo is embarking on, will bring tangible benefits by simplifying the business, reducing cost and improving opportunities in the industry's ever-changing and complex environment," said Shahari.

IATA e-freight is also operational in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Dubai, France Germany, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, Mauritius, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway and Singapore, among others.

Long-haul budget carrier AirAsia X has inked a contract to buy 10 Airbus A350s worth more than US$2.2 billion (RM7.8 billion), with option to purchase another five.

Deliveries are scheduled between 2016 and 2018.

The A350s will complement its current fleet of A330s.

The airline has ordered 25 A330s, due to be delivered through 2015, of which two have been delivered since October last year.

The A350-900 variant will be configured to seat 425 passengers in a two-class layout.

The deal was made at the Paris Air Show in France yesterday.

"Business is all about timing and long-term strategy. By buying the A350, AirAsia and AirAsia X have now got their strategy fixed all the way to 2020.

"The vision of creating the world's first long-haul and short-haul low-cost airline is complete and we are all very excited," AirAsia Bhd group chief executive officer (CEO) Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes said in a statement yesterday.

AirAsia X CEO Azran Osman-Rani said it selected the A350 XWB for the step-change it offers in terms of operating economics and its passenger appeal.

"We believe the A350 will be an industry game-changer that will allow us to dramatically operate with unprecedented unit costs for long-haul flights to Europe and North America, opening up new tourism markets and exciting destinations," he added.

AirAsia X currently flies to London, the UK; Melbourne, Perth and Gold Coast in Australia; and Tianjin and Hangzhou in China.

Airbus president and CEO Tom Enders said the A350 XWB burns up to 25 per cent less fuel per seat and covers a range of up to 15,400km.

Firm orders for the A350 XWB now stand at 493 from 31 customers worldwide.

Firefly defers delivery of 3 new aircraft
By Marina EmmanuelPublished: 2009/06/18

FIREFLY, a subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines (MAS)(3786), has deferred delivery of three new planes to next year, because of the economic downturn.

The national turboprop operator was initially expected to take delivery of 10 ATR 72-500s by the end of this year, but will now receive seven.

FlyFirefly Sdn Bhd managing director Eddy Leong said the move is to better pace the carrier's expansion in tandem with the economic recovery.

"The seven new ATRs will be adequate to operate all our Singapore routes for now," he told Business Times.
In 2007, Firefly and MASWings, another subsidiary of MAS, had inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Avions de Transport Regional, GIE for the purchase of 20 ATR 72-500s.

"Both Firefly and MASWings signed the aircraft purchase contract subsequent to the MoU, where Firefly signed a firm contract to buy 10 planes with an option for 10 more, and MASWings signed an order for five planes and an option for five," Leong said.

"MASWings eventually confirmed two of its options, making a total of seven firm orders with three remaining options," he said, adding that the aircraft's list price was US$18.5 million (RM65 million) based on delivery in 2008.

On the Singapore routes, Leong said the Ipoh-Singapore and the Malacca-Singapore sectors will serve as a start for Firefly.

The airline will start its flights to Singapore from Subang on July 1.

"Firefly has already obtained approval to fly into Singapore from Alor Star, Kota Baru and Kerteh," Leong said.

"We will devise more plans once we have actual experience of the potential of Ipoh and Malacca, such as Ipoh-Medan and Malacca-Pekan Baru," he added.

On whether Firefly has plans to join rivals AirAsia and Silk Air which had on June 1 introduced the Penang-Singapore route, Leong said: "Penang-Singapore is well-served and we do not have any plans for now as we prefer to focus on secondary routes."

Meanwhile, the carrier is monitoring the situation before resuming some of its flights out of Penang including Kota Baru, Terengganu, Malacca and Kuantan, which were temporarily suspended earlier this year.

"We are looking out for clearer signs of economic recovery," he added.

In looking at new routes to operate, Leong said Firefly is currently in a good position with its network footprint sprawling Peninsular Malaysia, southern Thailand, Sumatra and Singapore.

MASwings flies to Ba Kelalan thrice weekly
By Philip Kiew
Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

LAWAS: Rural Air Service operator MASwings has increased flight frequency from twice to thrice weekly from Lawas to Ba Kelalan starting this week.

The new weekly Ba Kelalan-bound flights from Lawas are on Monday (9.15am), Thursday (8.30am) and Saturday (8.30am).

Welcoming the development, Lawas Member of Parliament Datuk Henry Sum Agong, said additional flights are essential and a relief to the people of Ba Kelalan and Lawas district who depend heavily on air transportation for mobility.

According to him, land transportation is tedious and expensive, as journey from Lawas to Ba Kelalan could take up to eight hours by 4WD vehicles.

“That too if the weather is dry, but on any rainy day you might not reach your destination at all,” he added.

Henry said the additional flights were a shot in the arm for tourism and highland agriculture activities, which were badly disrupted when the flights were scaled down and the land transportation severely affected by the rainy spell in 2008 and earlier this year. He said this at the presentation of government grant to Perkep Lawas district on Monday.

Also present at the function were secretary to Perkep, Corporal Hanifah Kiliki and several exco members.

RM180 Million Spent To Upgrade Airport
June 24, 2009 17:29 PM

NUSAJAYA, June 24 (Bernama) -- The Senai Airport Terminal Services Sdn Bhd has spent RM180 million to implement several projects to upgrade the passenger terminal, operations complex and cargo terminal at the Sultan Ismail International Airport (LTSI) in Senai.

Johor Local Government, Housing, Arts, Culture and Heritage Committee chairman Datuk Ahmad Zahri Jamil said, works to extend the runway from 3.35km to 3.8km to cater to larger aircraft, passenger terminal expansion and commercial area were also underway.

"These works costing RM300 million began since August last year, and are part of the airport's long-term plan to turn LTSI into a cost-effective air logistics base with world-class infrastructure," he said when answering a question from Ng See Tiong (BN-Parit Yaani), Ng Kow Meng (DAP-Senai) and M. Munusamy (BN-Permas) at the Johor State Assembly in Kota Iskandar here today.

Ahmad Zahri said, upon its completion next June, LTSI which was furnished with an Aeromall, would also have a wider passenger area, basement parking, restaurants and commercial area to suit the lifestyle of Senai residents.

Meanwhile, state unity, manpower, science, technology and innovation committee chairman M. Asojan said, 6,154 local and foreign employees in the state had lost their jobs due to the economic downturn, between last October and May.

He said the retrenchment involved 162 companies, especially those in the manufacturing, electronics and textile sectors.

"Of the 6,154 workers, 3,929 are locals while the rest are foreigners," he said, answering a question from M. Munusamy (BN-Permas) and Dr Shahrudin Md Salleh (BN-Jorak).

To help retrenched workers, he said the Johor Labour Department was trying to contact those who were laid off.

"So far, 2,142 have been contacted and 669 given new jobs, while 688 have applied for training and relocation," added Asojan.

Malaysia Imposes More Stringent H1N1 Checks At Airports
June 24, 2009 16:15 PM

PUTRAJAYA, June 24 (Bernama) -- More stringent checks have been put in place at the country's international airports to detect Influenza A (H1N1) in incoming passengers because some of them have been untruthful with their health information, Director-General of Health Tan Sri Dr Mohd Ismail Merican said today.

He said there had been a 400 per cent increase in the number of cases in a week because one or two undetected cases had sparked off local transmission.

"Last week, we had only 21 cases with one local transmission, but this week we have 80 cases with 11 local transmissions. This also means that we have a gap in the detection system.

"This rapid increase is due to those coming into the country not being truthful to us. Those who think they have the symptoms should be truthful. This applies especially to people coming from overseas from the affected countries," he said.

Dr Mohd Ismail said that beginning today, all airline passengers had to complete a health alert card on the incoming flights and hand it to the health authorities before proceeding for Immigration clearance.

"All those entering the country must give their full details. Our teams will also be on the lookout for passengers who do not look healthy. All cards will be checked and those who fail to fill in all their details will be asked to do so before they can get to the Immigration counter," he said.

Dr Mohd Ismail also said that passengers arriving from the Philippines, the United States and Australia, where there are a large number of Influenza A (H1N1) cases, would be scanned twice -- once when they had alighted from the aircraft and again before they reached the Immigration counter.

"We advice those coming from these countries to undergo self-quarantine for a few days before starting their normal routine," he said.

He also said that the national technical committee on Influenza A(H1N1), which met here today, had also decided that infected Malaysians need not spend the entire seven days at designated hospitals.

"They can go home after three days if they do not have fever. But they must be on self-quarantine. This only applies to those above 18. We are trying to minimise hospital admissions," he said.

Dr Mohd Ismail said the ministry had added on more hospitals where screening for Influenza A(H1N1) could be carried out.

These are the Selayang Hospital, Serdang Hospital, Ampang Hospital, Putrajaya Hospital, Universiti Malaya Medical Centre, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Hospital, Seberang Jaya Hospital, Sungai Petani Hospital, Sultan Ismail Hospital in Pandan, Johor, and Sultan Ahmad Shah Hospital in Temerloh, Pahang.

"In the next week or so, we may allow private hospitals to do the screening provided they have the facilities. It also depends on the pandemic," he said.

Influenza A(H1N1) has so far affected 99 countries, infecting 53,110 people and killing 232.

Firefly announces two more direct flights from S’pore
Published: Wednesday June 24, 2009 MYT 8:12:00 PM

PETALING JAYA: Firefly has announced two new flights from Singapore, to Alor Setar and Kota Baru.

Angelina Fernandez, head of marketing and communications, said almost all visitors from Alor Setar and Kota Baru who travel to Singapore for business or leisure only travel via Penang or Kuala Lumpur, which is time consuming.

“These direct flights will give them the best alternative option to travel to Singapore,” she added.

She said Firefly will be working closely with the tourism boards of Malaysia and Singapore to exploit the new routes.

The maiden flights to Kota Baru and Alor Setar are scheduled for Oct 25, departing at 11am from the Singapore Budget Terminal at Changi.

The flights to Kota Baru are four times a week while Alor Setar flights are every other day.

Firefly: Singapore flights to contribute 10pc to revenue
By Marina Emmanuel
Published: 2009/06/25

FIREFLY, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines, expects its Singapore flights to contribute 10 per cent of revenue this year.

The community airline is set to operate six flights daily from various Malaysian airports into Singapore by December this year.

"Our plan is to bring in more Singaporeans and transit passengers from Singapore and put smaller towns in Malaysia on the world map," FlyFirefly Sdn Bhd managing director Eddy Leong told Business Times yesterday.

Firefly will make its entry into Singapore skies on July 1, departing from the SkyPark Subang terminal at 7.50am and arriving at Singapore's Changi Budget Terminal at 9.05am.

In addition to the Subang-Singapore route, Firefly will begin operating other routes in stages next month, such as Ipoh-Singapore, Kuala Terengganu-Singapore and Kuantan-Singapore.

Yesterday, Firefly launched ticket sales for its Alor Star-Singapore and Kota Baru-Singapore flights that will begin by October.

Leong said the airline is currently working with inbound agents in Singapore to get more people to fly into Malaysia from Singapore.

"We are also working with Club Med, the YTL Group, Swiss Garden and Hyatt to globally market their properties and put smaller towns like Kuantan and Pangkor on the map," he said.

Leong said Firefly has so far received encouraging response for the Singapore routes from Ipoh, Kuala Terengganu and Subang.
