MAHB Q2 earnings rise 19pc
By Presenna Nambiar Published: 2008/08/29 BusinessTimes



MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd registered a 19 per cent increase in second quarter net profit as it made more money from running its airports as well as from non-airport operations.

The group also operates oil palm estates and an auction business.

MAHB recorded a net profit of RM66.4 million for the period to June 30 2008, against RM55.8 million the year before. Revenue was up nine per cent to RM372.2 million.

Managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said the group is confident of achieving its headline key performance indicators this year despite a potential dip in aeronautical revenue in the second half, due to the impact of high fuel costs to airlines.

Aeronautical revenue comprises fees it charges airlines to use its facilities, like landing and parking charges.

"We will not know the impact now, but once the winter scheduling in November is done, we will be able to gauge its effect on the airports," Bashir told reporters in Subang yesterday.

However, MAHB is not overly worried as it seeks to grow its other businesses.

MAHB, in its announcement to Bursa Malaysia, said it has completed talks with the government on its proposed corporate and financial restructuring and is awaiting the outcome.

"The group expects its financial performance for 2008 financial year to be determined by the outcome of the proposal," MAHB said.

The government had agreed to temporarily suspend lease rental payable from 2004 until it could reach a deal with MAHB.

Lease rental payable to the government comprises a fixed and a variable payment.

The total fixed payment due in 2008 is RM324.9 million. The variable payment amount was not disclosed.

For the second quarter, MAHB's revenue improved due to a 13.3 per cent growth in airport operations and 29 per cent growth in non-airport operations.

Airport operations performed well mainly due to a 20 per cent growth in rental and other commercial revenue. Aeronautical revenue also improved by 7.4 per cent.

Pangkor island
Perak



An idyllic and beautiful island resort for a carefree and relaxing holiday

Off the coast of perak State, north of Selangor , lies a cluster of fabulous
islands with unquestionably some of the best coves and beaches on the
western coast of peninsular Malaysia. Among them, two islands predominate
in terms of accessibility, infrastructure and development - the largest island,
Pangkor and her sister Pangkor Laut. Those who are not familiar with the
geographical locations generally confuse the two.







Forty minutes by ferry from Lumut, the popular island resort of Pulau Pangkor
(Pangkor Island) welcomes visitors with its serene golden beaches,
crystalline blue waters, and cool refreshing breezes. Located about 90km
south west of lpoh, it is largely inhabited by fisherfolk.

They live in scattered fishing settlements along the coast especially on
the eastern side, facing the town of Lumut and Teluk Batik, and their catch
comprises mainly cuttlefish and anchovy. The modern facilities make it an
ideal gateway. A wide range of sun and sea activities are available such as
scuba diving, wind-surfing, fishing, snorkelling.

Layang layang Island
Swallow Reef, South China Sea.



Situated just over 300km northwest of Sabah's capital Kota Kinabalu in the South China Sea, Pulau Layang-Layang (Layang-layang Island) is an isolated atoll-like ring of 13 linked coral reefs. The whole island is only 7.5km long and two km wide. Due to its remoteness, the Layang-Layang reefs are pristine with superb visibility. Steep walls provide spectacular diving down to a great depth, and attract pelagic species such as Barracuda, Bigeye Trevally and Sharks.



The island is best visited during April and June when shoals of Hammerhead Sharks can be seen patrolling the reefs. Many species of migratory birds nest here, including Brown Boobies, sometimes known as Asian Albatross, and Great Crested Terns, which are also known as sea swallows, hence the island's name ('Swallow Island').



The resort can also cater to seminars, meetings, conferences and incentive group functions. There are adequate conference and banqueting facilities, with the ability to host up to 200 persons.

Need to upgrade Pangkor airport
Friday June 20, 2008 TheStar

THE Pangkor airport should be expanded to allow larger aircraft to fly into the island.

Malaysian Association of Hotels Perak Chapter chairman Jimmy Yeo said the present air-strip could only accommodate a 48-seater aircraft.

“I believe there is sufficient land for the airport expansion.

“Hopefully, the airport can be upgraded to allow 72-seater planes to land on the island,” he said.

He said a bigger airport would not only help boost tourism on the island but would encourage more flights to be introduced.

“There are currently five flights a week into the island from Subang airport.

“With a bigger airport, it is possible to have more flights from Kuala Lumpur International Airport and even Singapore,” he added.

Yeo said that there were plans by the previous state government to extend the airport runway to the seafront several years ago but the plan did not materialise for reasons unknown.

On a separate matter, the Pangkor Chalet Operators Association urged the Human Resources Ministry to reconsider its decision to limit government programmes in hotels in the country.

Its chairman Mohd Pisol Yahya said the decision had badly affected about 20 hotel and chalet operators on the island.

“Government seminars and training cour-ses contribute 55% of our total revenue there,” said Mohd Pisol.

“Hotels and chalets cannot survive with just businesses from tourists alone,” he said.

He said hotels and chalets would also be forced to retrench its employees if they could not make ends meet, adding that the operators might even be forced to close shop.

Terengganu to widen Redang airstrip to handle more tourists
Sunday September 7, 2008By R.S.N. MURALI TheStar

KUALA TERENGGANU: The state government has approved the widening of the airstrip on diving haven Redang island to cater for increasing tourist arrivals.

State Tourism, Culture, Arts and Heritage Committee chairman Datuk Zaabar Mohd Adib said the present strip was not wide enough to handle emergencies.

“We are also planning to upgrade the airport terminal,” he said.

He said the project was crucial as the airport was a gateway to Redang for foreign tourists, especially Singaporeans.

“There are two flights daily to the island operated by Berjaya Air,” he said, adding that the flights were from the airports in Subang and Seletar, Singapore.

The island now has a 60:40 ratio of foreigner to local tourists.

“More foreigners are making Redang their popular excursion spot,” Zaabar said, adding that hotel and resorts were enjoying 85% occupancy even during off-peak seasons.

“We are also witnessing a niche market at Redang where most tourists spend lavishly during their stay on the island,” he said.

Zaabar said the state government was also encouraging tourists from Hong Kong and Europe to come to the island and to stop at Kuala Terengganu first.

“The state government is planning to recruit tourist guides to bring foreigners to the city centre once they have landed at the Sultan Mahmud Airport here,” he added.

Proposed Tioman airport plan may be off
Fri, Jul 04, 2008 The Star

TIOMAN: The proposed RM120mil airport here could be cancelled due to environmental reasons.

Deputy Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Maznah Mazlan said the project’s environmental impact assessment had been completed and an announcement would be made soon.

The airport was to be built on reclaimed land in Kampung Paya. It would have a 2km-runway to accommodate the Boeing 737 aircrafts.

The increase in tourists to the island particularly after it was given duty-free status in 2002 is one of the factors in proposing for a new airport.

The current airport in Kampung Tekek can only accommodate a 42-seater aircraft.

The only other access to the island is via ferry from Mersing (Johor) and Tanjung Gemuk (Pahang).

The airport plan received protest among villagers and chalet operators in Kampung Paya, Kampung Genting and Kampung Mukut as it would affect marine life.

Tioman Island
Terengganu



Tioman is the biggest and most impressive island at the east coast. There is a brisk jungle covers a ridge on the west section of the island, which ends at the idyllic location of a beautiful palm fringed beach. Tioman offers a wide range of activities for visitors: snorkeling in crystal clear water, discover the beautiful underwater world when you go diving, or just laze on the beach while you work on that tan. Also, there is a jungle on the island that is just begging to be explored. The dense forest is a habitat for many kinds of flora and fauna.

The island is served by ferries from the Malaysian mainland, and propeller plane service by Berjaya Air from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.

Sriwijaya to make Penang aviation hub
By Marina Emmanuel Published: 2008/09/09
BusinessTimes

INDONESIAN scheduled passenger carrier Sriwijaya Air will begin offering daily non-stop flights between Medan and Penang on September 21, making the Penang International Airport its hub to the Asean region.

This will be extended from Penang to Hatyai, Thailand and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, next year.

Plans are also afoot to make the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang its hub to the Middle East region, with flights from Medan to Kuala Lumpur and to Dubai next year.

Sriwijaya Medan district manager Heru Tony Hardjanto said the airline will take delivery of five new B737-500s in 2009, as it continues to build a fleet of 19 B737-200s, 300s and 400s.

"Once the new planes start coming in from June next year, we intend to make KLIA our hub for the Middle East with flights to Dubai," he told a news conference to announce the inaugural Medan-Penang flight in Penang yesterday.

The one-way fare from Penang to Medan route has been set at US$125 (RM427.15), while a Medan-Penang ticket will cost US$100 (RM342).

The tickets are only available through travel agents. Its general sales agent in Malaysia is Allya Travel and Tours Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of IBF International Network Sdn Bhd.

IBF International's chief executive officer Ahmad Fazli Hashim said his company will work with Sriwijaya Air to promote medical tourism between Indonesia and Penang.

"We have already identified the Penang Adventist, Island and Lam Wah Ee hospitals on the island as potential partners for our stretcher services for medical tourists.

"Our medical tourism packages will come with hotel room and ground transfer and our strecher fares will involve the reconfiguration of the aircraft where 12 seats will be removed in order to accommodate the patient on the stretcher," Ahmad Fazli added.

Revitalise Ipoh airport
Sept 9, 2008 By HAH FOONG LIAN TheStar

THE under-utilised Sultan Azlan Shah Airport in Ipoh should be turned into a hub for short-range travel, Datuk Bandar Roshidi Hashim said.

He made the proposal in his speech when he opened the three-day Perak Matta Travel Fair 2008 at Stadium Indera Mulia in Ipoh recently.

Roshidi said: “I am of the view that the airport should be used for short-range travel such as flying to Phuket if the runway could not be extended.”

Promoting tourism: Roshidi (left) being introduced to Perak Matta Fair participants dressed in traditional Chinese and Korean costumes.

He noted that small aircraft could use the airport, which now only serves weekly flights to Medan.

In 2006, low-cost carrier AirAsia stopped flights from Ipoh to Senai, citing the short runway as the reason.

Since then, there have been calls by public interest groups to expand the use of the airport.

Roshidi pointed out that the state government, including the Ipoh City Council, was keen to enhance the use of the airport.

Roshidi noted that tourism was an important economic contributor to the earnings of Ipoh city.

He said that he would be going to Medan, Indonesia, next month to promote Ipoh as a destination although flights from Ipoh to Medan were limited.

“We want to continue to promote Ipoh as an international tourist destination,” he added.

On the travel fair, Roshidi said this year was the sixth Perak Matta Travel Fair to be organised for travellers.
