Narita service to boost MASkargo position
Published: 2009/09/09

MALAYSIA Airlines Cargo Sdn Bhd's (MASkargo) position as one of Asia's best air cargo carriers will be strengthened with the introduction of a new freighter destination from Senai Airport to Narita, Japan.

In a statement, MASkargo said the first flight left Senai on Sunday (Sept 6) at 2.15am and arrived in Narita at 9.55am the same morning.

Its managing director, Shahari Sulaiman, said the new service formed part of the company's efforts to spread its wings and explore new areas of business.

"We have added this new route to meet the growing demand for cargo in the southern region. We see Johor Bahru (JB) as having vast potential growth for business," he said.

Shahari said the company was assisting the Iskandar Development Region (IDR) to develop the Southern Economic Corridor.

"This service is expected to complement Singapore Changi while simultaneously tapping the potentials of Batam and Riau," he said.

He said Batam was equipped with the facilities and infrastructure to become one of the biggest ports of South-East Asia.

"It is a major centre of international trade, industry and commerce with it being located strategically close to the Malacca Straits," he said.

Shahari said IDR has great plans for JB's future in wanting to be globally competitive and attracting investors and businesses.
"Maskargo, armed with efficiency, reliability, speed and security, aims to make its presence felt in this promising region," he said.

Meanwhile, Datuk Mohd Sidik Shaik Osman, chief executive officer for Senai Airport Terminal Services (SATS), said demand for airfreight services in Johor was projected to grow even further.

"This is partly due to the potential shown by Johor and IDR's industrial and manufacturing export sectors," he said.

Sidik said to meet the increase in demand for reliable airfreight services in Johor, SATS would play its part to develop itself into an efficient logistics and regional cargo hub.

Among others, he said, the development included the extension of the runway to 3,800 metres, a parallel taxiway and associated high-speed turn-off taxiways to increase runway capacity and developing a well-equipped cargo terminal capable of handling up to 80,000 tonnes of cargo per annum. - Bernama

It wants to position commercial area as regional wholesale centre
SENAI: Senai Airport Terminal Services Sdn Bhd (SATS) will launch the first of three “components” of the multi-billion ringgit Senai Aviation & Airport City project by year-end.

Deputy chief executive officer Shahrull Allam Abdul Halim said the first component, on a 323.74ha site, comprised residential, commercial and hospitality amenities.

The other two components in the mixed development project are an air cargo logistics centre and a high-tech park, each occupying a 404.68ha site.

“The first component’s launch involves the commercial and hospitality segment while the residential side will take place when the time is appropriate,’’ Shahrull told StarBiz in an interview.

He said the initial launch would cover a 12.94ha site, of which 10.52ha would be for the commercial precinct and 2.42ha for the hospitality section.

“The hospitality component, comprising two hotel blocks and a convention centre, will be developed in three phases and the project will take 24 months to complete,’’ he said.

The development of the hotels and the convention centre will come under Johor-based Tiong Nam Logistics Holdings Bhd, according to Shahrull.

Shahrull said apart from factory outlets, the commercial area would also have logistics and warehousing facilities.

“We want to position the commercial area as a regional wholesale centre to attract buyers from countries in the region,’’ he said, adding that an international wholesale operator with a similar operation in Dubai had decided to invest in the commercial project and would manage the wholesale centre while SATS would provide the land.

SATS subsidiary Enigma Harmoni Sdn Bhd, which is linked to billionaire Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary, has received approval from the Kulai Municipal Council for the airport city project.

MMC International Holdings Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Syed Mokhtar’s MMC Corp Bhd, has stakes in Senai International Airport, Port of Tanjung Pelepas and Johor Port.

The entire development, which is located next to the Senai Airport, also includes a Customs Inspection Quarantine Complex and will take about 10 years to complete.

The project is estimated to cost about RM1.2bil with the Senai Airport Hi-Tech Park set to be the second high-tech park in the country after Kulim Hi-Tech Park in Kedah.

Opened in 1974, Senai Airport is managed by SATS, which took over the operations of the airport from Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd in 2003.

MASwings Confident Of Bigger Passenger Loads In Sabah And Sarawak
September 15, 2009 12:45 PM

SIBU, Sept 15(Bernama) -- MASwings, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines, is confident of a bigger passenger load in Sabah and Sarawak soon.

Since taking over the Rural Air Service(RAS) in the two states on an exclusive basis in October 2007, it has been flying progessively increasing numbers.

"As of February this year, we flew one million passengers after just 17 months of operation.

"We are now flying more than 70,000 passengers a month compared to between 40,000 to 50,000 previously," MASwings managing director Mohd Salleh Ahmad Tabrani told a briefing here Monday.

He said in the last six months, MASwings had registered a 24 percent passenger growth, a figure he said, was "quite amazing".

"Despite the economic problems, there is still a very strong appetite for air travel in Sabah and Sarawak,"he said.

He said MASwings had also achieved significant revenue from handling seven customer foreign airlines like Royal Brunei, Cathay Pacific, Korean Airlines and Japan Airlines at the Kota Kinabalu and Kuching international airports.

"We are ploughing this revenue back in subsidising our less profitable routes," he explained.

MASwings now operates 800 flights a week or 41,600 annually. Its network covers some 22 destinations, of which 16 are in Sarawak, with four in Sabah and one in Labuan.

In Sarawak, MASwings serves Kuching, Sibu, Bintulu, Miri and Limbang besides smaller airports like Mukah, Tanjung Manis, Bario, Lawas, Long Akah, Long Seridan, Long Lellang, Mulu, Ba'kelalan, Marudi and Longa Banga,"he said.

In Sabah, the destinations are Kota Kinablau, Lahad Datu, Tawau, Sandakan and Labuan itself.

MASwings current fleet consists of 15 turboprop aircrafts serving 26 routes in Sarawak, four in Sabah and eight between Sabah and Sarawak.

"We are undertaking a major fleet renewal programme.We have five ATR 72-500 aircrafts, six Fokker 50 and four Twin Otters.We made a major investment of RM700 million to acquire the ATR.

"We will be adding another five ATR to the ones we already have by April next year.

By then we will be ready to phase out the Fokker 50," Mohd Salleh said.

He also disclosed that at the same time, MASwings hoped to add another Twin Otter and with that, more new interiors routes in the two states could be considered.

On passenger volume for last year, he said MASwings had carried 105,292 travellers on its Twin Otters and 643,693 on its Fokker 50 and ATR to enjoy a 62 per cent load factor.

Tawau Airport can handle more flights: Tee Keat
Published on: Thursday, September 24, 2009

Tawau: Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Kiat said he had received feedback from the public on various transportation problems here and assured he will follow it up with proactive moves to address the problems.

Met after a closed-door meeting with local MCA leaders at a hotel here Wednesday, he said the district had sufficient infrastructure to facilitate more flights, both in-bound and out-bound.

"Tawau and other districts require better transportation modes as they are involved in the BIMP-EAGA zone and we are planning for such steps to be taken," he told a press conference held after the meeting.

In another related matter, Ong, who is MCA President, said sea transportation is also important and feedback on problems faced in the sector would be studied to provide the best opportunity for the district to be engaged effectively.

He, however, added that some matters brought to his attention do not involve his Ministry alone as matters such as safety and customs clearance require effort from other parties.

"But, we will seriously study such matters, especially on problems which have been long overdue, for the benefit of the public in general," he assured.

Ong also said he would be returning to the district soon to make several announcements such as on the use of the present radar system for Search and Rescue (SAR) at sea and air.

Present during the meeting were Sabah MCA Chief Datuk Edward Khoo, MCA division chiefs Goh Chit Chuan (Tawau), Pang Khin Kon (Kalabakan) and Liew Kong Kai (Semporna).

SilkAir to take over SIA’ Penang services
Written by The Edge Financial Daily Monday, 05 October 2009 22:52

KUALA LUMPUR: From Dec 1, SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines (SIA), will take over its parent' services between Singapore and Penang.

SIA currently has a daily morning flight while SilkAir has twice-daily frequencies to Penang.

In a statement today, SilkAir said with the change, it would serve Penang three times daily, with a morning frequency in addition to the current afternoon and evening frequencies. The flights are subject to regulatory approvals.

It said having SilkAir on the Singapore-Penang route optimised the utilisation of the SIA group' resources and presented a better match of capacity to demand.

"Since the launch of SilkAir' services on the Singapore-Penang route in June this year, we have received a very good response from our customers through healthy loads and positive feedback on our inflight service," said SilkAir' chief executive Chin Yau Seng.

SilkAir said Penang, rich in culture, history and heritage, was one of Malaysia' top tourist draws.

"Its largest city, George Town, features charming colonial buildings and villas that are best explored on foot. Due to its multicultural history of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences, Penang is also well known as Malaysia' food paradise with must-try dishes like the famous Penang laksa and char kway teow," it said.

MASwings receives sixth ATR aircraft
11th October, 2009



Salleh (right) and Stephan at the signing for the
delivery of the sixth ATR in Toulouse, France


KOTA KINABALU: MASwings received its sixth ATR aircraft, which arrived here from Subang yesterday.

The additional aircraft adding up to its current fleet will fortify MASwings commitment in enhancing its connectivity and comfort to the travelling public in Sabah and Sarawak.

MASwings managing director, Mohd Salleh Ahmad Tabrani said, “The delivery of the 6th ATR will enable MASwings to fulfill its obligation to offer daily frequencies which are required to provide air connectivity to the people of Sabah and Sarawak”.

The latest craft will replace the Fokker 50 routing from Kota Kinabalu to Labuan, Sandakan, Tawau and Sibu-Kuching sectors effective Oct 25.

The introduction of the ATR will increase additional overall seat capacity by 1008 passenger per week or 28% injection on the above routes and certain route will experience a massive increase by 36% without changes in the flight frequencies.

The overall combined seat capacity for these three routes are 3,644 per week before the introduction of the ATR and will increase to 4652 per week after Oct 25.

MASwings would be able to cater higher seats capacity as compared to the previous operational model using the Fokker 50, he said.

“The ATR will enable us to expand our capacity, meeting the future demand in air travel within Sabah and Sarawak, and connect more customers worldwide to the two states which are ideal destinations for business and tourism” Salleh added.

The sixth ATR which took the sky from Toulouse, France on Sept 30 arrived Subang on Oct 5 has undergone maintenance checks and was then certified airworthy by the Department of Civil Aviation in Subang on Oct 9 with the registration number 9M-MWF.

Speaking during the official delivery ceremony in Toulouse France is the CEO of ATR, Stephan Meyer, who said that, “ The ATR is clearly the right choice for MASwings operations due to its environmentally friendly engine that emits less carbon that is harmful to the tropical jungles of Sabah and Sarawak. It also enables MASwings to provide air connectivity to the interior of Sabah and Sarawak that has shorter runway such as Limbang and Mulu.”

Salleh during the signing said: “The delivery reinforces MASwings commitment to provide air travel services that are safe, reliable, punctual and consistent to the people of Sabah and Sarawak whilst keeping the operational cost low which is the major advantages of the ATR aircraft due to its low fuel consumption and maintenance requirement.”

MASwings is much on track with its fleet replacement initiative. The Fokker 50 aircraft will be replaced with ATR72-500 periodically and this entire aging fleet will be phased out by May 2010.

MASwings ATR cabin is configured to 68 seats with 31”inches pitch seats which offers wider and spacious cabin, thus providing comfort for travellers.

Amongst the additional facility made available in the ATR is the in-flight entertainment screen, which showcases the destinations in Sabah and Sarawak and ultimately provides information for the travelling public especially foreign travellers.

Meanwhile, MASwings 7th ATR is expected to be delivered in December 2009. With the recent recruitment and graduation of MASwings cabin crews in Sabah, MASwings is currently working with both Sabah and Sarawak tourism bodies to enhance the knowledge of its cabin crew by providing them tourism product information through a training that will be conducted by both tourism bodies.

The product enhancement will be extended to its existing crews by stages.

“With the product enrichment, our cabin crew will be more equipped with product knowledge to supply for our customers as we strive to provide excellent service in line with our vision to be a Five Star value carrier,” Salleh said.

MAE nears RM2b revenue target
By Kang Siew Li Published: 2009/10/12



Malaysian Aerospace Engineering has set a RM2 billion revenue target for this year, of which RM520 million will come from third-party maintenance, repair and overhaul services.

Malaysian Aerospace Engineering Sdn Bhd (MAE), the engineering and maintenance arm of Malaysia Airlines (MAS), said it expects work from its parent and other carriers to contribute equally to revenue for the year ending December 31, 2010.

The company has set a RM2 billion revenue target for this year, of which RM520 million or 26 per cent will come from third-party maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services.

Managing director Mohd Roslan Ismail told Business Times that the company is close to the target and is confident of achieving the 50:50 revenue mix by end-2010.

This is due to intensified focus on third-party MRO services in the last three years, which saw this segment grow by more than 100 per cent from RM218 million in 2006 to RM438 million last year.

MAE also sees encouraging recovery signs in the global MRO industry as airlines respond to growing demand by catching up on deferred maintenance and upgrades and removing aircraft from storage.

Already, it has projected to have revenue of RM3 billion by 2013, of which 60 per cent will be work for third parties. MAE now handles third-party work from more than 100 airlines including Air Atlanta, Lufthansa, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Jet Airways, Delta and GECAS.

Meanwhile, it remains on track to meet its target of RM520 million in third party revenue this year despite falling short of its first-half goal.

"We initially targeted to capture a sizeable chunk of MRO work for wide-body aircraft like the Boeing 747 and 777 because they generate more money. However, the global economic slowdown had resulted in airlines around the world grounding aircraft because of the drop in passenger traffic," Mohd Roslan said, adding that most of these aircraft grounded were scheduled for heavy maintenance checks and were wide-body jets.

"So while we were kept busy handling maintenance work in the first half of this year, the jobs were mainly for narrow-body jets that generate less revenue even though the duration of the checks is roughly the same as that for wide-body aircraft," he said.

As a result, MAE fell short of its first-half third party revenue target.

"However, third party revenue compared year-on-year was slightly better than the year before, with a 5 per cent growth," Mohd Roslan said.

To ensure that the RM520 million target is still met, the company has embarked on an aggressive plan to pursue further third-party work in the second half of this year.

"Besides going after the total aircraft maintenance business, we have decided to capture other ancillary revenue like fleet technical management, technical training, line station services and component overhaul workshop," Mohd Roslan said.

Its efforts have borne fruit, as its 24-hangar MRO facilities at Subang and the KL International Airport in Sepang are running out of space.

"Business is so good that we had to rent hangar space from Sepang Aircraft Engineering Sdn Bhd next door," he added.

It is also seeing a return in wide-body aircraft MRO jobs since August as airlines bring their wide-body fleet back to service, adding to evidence that the global MRO industry has hit bottom.

"I had forewarned my team during a June meeting that we have to be ready once the economy rebounds. People will start bringing back their retired/grounded aircraft and there will be a glut of requirements for aircraft maintenance. True enough, we now face capacity problems," Mohd Roslan said.

So far this year, MAE has carried out checks on more than 100 aircraft of both narrow- and wide-body types.

On its proposed acquisition of Transmile Group Bhd's engineering and maintenance unit, Mohd Roslan said MAE is currently conducting due diligence on its counterpart and expects to finalise its decision by the end of the year. Upon the completion of the proposed acquisition, MAE is expected to be the largest provider of airframe MRO services in Asia-Pacific with 28 hangars and the capacity to accommodate 28 narrow- and wide-body aircraft at any one time.

Better passenger numbers at airports attributed to improving economy
By Jeeva Arulampalam Published: 2009/10/15

AIRPORT operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) says overall passenger growth at its airports is stabilising.

MAHB chief financial officer Faizal Mansor told Business Times that the year-on-year growth was attributable to better economic conditions.

"The monthly passenger growth now is better than a year ago because that was when the economic downturn had just started," he said on the sidelines of the Frost & Sullivan Growth, Innovation and Leadership Congress 2009 in Kuala Lumpur.

In August, MAHB saw overall passenger movement at the 39 domestic airports it operates increase 4.6 per cent to 4.5 million passengers.

It expects similar growth for September.

During its second quarter results briefing in August, MAHB said it hoped for overall passenger numbers to rise 1.5 per cent to 4 per cent this year.

MAHB had come out with two sets of headline key performance indicators in March: one based on flat passenger traffic growth and another based on a 5 per cent contraction in passenger growth.

On another matter, Faizal declined to disclose the amount in outstanding airport taxes settled last month by budget carrier AirAsia Bhd.

"That is something only the government can address as we do not disclose our agreements with partners such as AirAsia," he said.

The budget carrier had withheld about RM110 million in payments to MAHB, claiming that it was being overcharged by the airport operator.

Layang Layang Aerospace gets FDS
By Puvaneswary Devindran
Saturday, October 17th, 2009

Quote:
Company beats five others, including local hopeful Hornbill Skyways, to win lucrative contract
KUCHING: Layang Layang Aerospace Sdn Bhd has been awarded the contract to operate the Flying Doctor Service (FDS) and Emergency Medevac Services (EMS) in Sarawak. State health director Dr Kamil Hassan yesterday confirmed that his department had received a letter from the Health Ministry, stating the company was awarded the contract, and would begin service on Oct 1.Layang Layang Aerospace, formed in Miri, received its letter of award before Hari Raya Aidilfitri last month and had begun operation of the EMS on Oct 1 and FDS on Oct 12.A reliable source told The Borneo Post yesterday that the company had passed a probationary period when it was asked to assist in providing interim FDS in 2008 alongside Hornbill Skyways Sdn Bhd.

Layang Layang Aerospace is said to have five helicopters comprising one Eurocopter AS355 and four Eurocopter BO105. Both models are twin engine rotor aircraft. Three of the helicopters would handle the FDS while the remaining two cater to EMS. All five helicopters are on a ‘lease to purchase’, meaning the company is renting them now but will eventually own them after a certain period, said the source.

Both models are equipped with high frequency radio for coastal areas (as is normally used in the interior) and normal navigational frequency. The company is setting up offices in Kuching and Sib to better coordinate its services throughout the state.

Layang Layang Aerospace has 15 years’ experience in the aviation industry. Registered and started in Miri, it expanded to Sabah and set up operation base in Kota Kinabalu in February 2000.

The company provides the Skyvan service that delivers fuel to the highlands, especially the Bario, and has a chairman and board of directors experienced in the aviation industry.

Layang Layang Aerospace beat five other bidders to the contract: Hornbill Skyways Sdn Bhd, Sabah Air Sdn Bhd, Weststar Aviation Sdn Bhd, SAR Helicopters Sdn Bhd and Systematic Aviation Services Sdn Bhd (SAS).

Sarawak was without a permanent FDS and EMS Providing interim services to rural folk after the government terminated the contract of the previous operator, SAR Helicopters Sdn Bhd, in 2007.

After that Layang Layang Aerospace and Hornbill Skyways were called in to assist in providing interim services to rural folk.Hornbill Skyways, which had operated the FDS and EMS in the state for decades, got grounded in Sept 2004 following a spate of crashes involving its Bell 206 helicopters.

Hornbill Skyways executive chairman Aidan Wing on Thursday said Hornbill hoped to get back the contract since it had already spent RM70 million on new twin engine choppers to meet the contract’s expectations.

Aidan could not be reached for comments yesterday.

MASkargo eyes bigger freighters next year
By Kang Siew LiPublished: 2009/10/20

MAalaysia Airlines Cargo Sdn Bhd (MASkargo), the air cargo subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines, says it is looking for bigger cargo planes next year when the lease of its four narrow-body freighters expires.

Managing director Shahari Sulaiman said he was deliberating on the best aircraft type for the carrier in light of a recovery in world air freight volume and was considering wide-body freighters such as the Boeing 747-400 and the Airbus 330.

Currently, MASkargo has a wet-lease contract for four 747-200 freighters (747-200Fs) provided by Air Atlanta Icelandic, which expires at the end of April next year. This is in addition to two 747-400Fs that it owns.

A wet lease is the leasing of a plane including crew, maintenance and insurance.

"Next year, we have an opportunity to right-size our freighter capacity (to better match demand). We are working out what is the best aircraft type to use beyond April and may look at the bigger 747-400Fs or A330Fs," Shahari told Business Times in an interview.

He added that cargo volume in the third quarter had shown encouraging signs of a recovery.

MASkargo saw year-on-year demand improve from a 30 per cent decline in the first quarter of the year to a 23 per cent decline in the second quarter. Its biggest improvement was in the third quarter, with September showing a 9 per cent decline.

"Cargo volume handled in September was higher than in December last year. As such, we expect to see positive growth in cargo volume by November."

While Shahari believes that the worst is over for the air cargo industry, he feels that recovery will be slow.

"This year, the business environment has never been this challenging for the aviation industry, including the air cargo segment. Volume has dropped drastically and the region most impacted was Asia-Pacific.

"However, in recent months, we see a recovery (in volume) in Asia-Pacific, especially China. So, while we were the first (region) to be hit by the global economic crisis, we were also the first to recover from it," he said.

MASkargo's average load factor continues to hover at 70 per cent, above the 48 per cent market average, thanks to capacity cuts in the first quarter.

"We parked one of our 747-400Fs in March this year to cut costs amid the global economic downturn. In addition, our parent MAS had cut scheduled passenger flights by 13 per cent, affecting the bellyhold capacity which accounts for 60 per cent of our cargo capacity. These measures have kept our cargo load factor up," said Shahari.

However, with capacity down, even though cargo numbers have started to rise, yields remain weak.

"According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the yield dilution in the airline industry was close to 17 per cent. Ours are below that level," Shahari said.

In response to the seasonal upturn in cargo demand in the fourth quarter, MASkargo brought back into service last month its parked 747-400F.

"With the reintroduction of our freighter, we launched a once-weekly service between Kuala Lumpur and Narita, Tokyo, via Senai, Johor Baru, and increased our flights between Pudong, Shanghai, and Amsterdam to twice a week.

"We have also increased our charter business from China to Europe as well as to new destinations never served before. For instance, last month, we provided a charter flight service from Melbourne to Djibouti," Shahari said.

On the home front, MASkargo will begin a "multi-million-ringgit" project to expand its cargo capacity at the Advanced Cargo Centre (ACC) at KL International Airport in Sepang by the year-end.

"We plan to increase our cargo handling capacity to one million tonnes a year within the next three to four years, from 650,000 tonnes at present, by improving our processes. The expanded facility will cater for our requirements for the next 10 years," Shahari said.

MASkargo expects to handle 600,000 tonnes of cargo at the ACC this year, down from 620,000 tonnes last year. However, it anticipates an increase of at least 10 per cent in cargo volume next year.

MAHB sees up to 4pc passenger increase
Published: 2009/10/20

MALAYSIA Airport Holdings Bhd (MAHB) expects passenger volume to grow by between three and four per cent by year-end.

Its managing director, Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad Abdul Majid, said although it expected either a five per cent drop in passenger volume or a stagnant growth, it was fortunate that there was an increase in tourism volume.

"Tourism here is doing well even during the downturn.

"Last year, we experienced a growth of about five per cent, or around 45 million (passengers) in all our airports. This year we expect to have around 47 million," he told a press conference in Sepang today.

Bashir said MAHB was expected to attract two more airlines by year-end.

He, however, declined the name the airlines.

Earlier, MAHB's five international airports became the first in Asia to receive the Safety Management System (SMS) certification in compliance with the International Civil Aviation Organisation's (ICAO) recommendation and the Department of Civil Aviation''s advice.

Bashir said MAHB would implement the system at all its domestic airports even though it was not required by ICAO.

The SMS certification indicates conformance with safety requirements and continuous improvement in safety performance including essential features such as policy, strategy and planning, implementation, promotion, documentation, staff training and competency.

Bashir said he was "very proud" because MAHB''s success was achieved using local know-how.

The five certified airports are Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Penang International Airport, Langkawi International Airport, Kota Kinabalu International Airport and Kuching International Airport. - Bernama

MAHB: Passenger volume to improve
By Hamisah HamidPublished: 2009/10/21

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014) has revised its targeted passenger growth this year to 3-4 per cent in light of the increase in tourist arrivals.

The airport operator had earlier projected passenger volume to remain stagnant or fall 5 per cent compared to last year.

"This (new projection) is based on tourist arrival figures. Tourism is doing well even during the economic downturn," MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad told a news conference in Sepang yesterday.

Also present were Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) director-general Datuk Azharuddin Abdul Rahman and MAHB chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman.
Last year, total passenger volume at the 39 airports MAHB operates in the country rose 5 per cent to 47.45 million.

Bashir also said that two more airlines were expected to operate from KL International Airport (KLIA) by the year-end. There are currently 54 airlines servicing KLIA.

Earlier, MAHB received the Safety Management System certification from the DCA for its five international airports in the country.

KLIA, Penang International Airport, Langkawi International Airport, Kota Kinabalu International Airport and Kuching International Airport were audited by the DCA.

The five airports are the first in Asia to receive the certification in compliance with the International Civil Aviation Organisation's (ICAO) safety management programme issued last year.

All the airports managed by MAHB in the country will have the certification by end-2011, Bashir said.

He added that compliance with the ICAO's certification was only required of international airports, but MAHB would seek it for all airports under its management, including those overseas.

The Bintulu, Tawau, Miri, Sibu and Terengganu airports are next in line. They are expected to receive the certification by next year.

MASkargo Shanghai to see sharp improvement in 4Q
Written by Darlene Liew Wednesday, 21 October 2009 23:56
http://www.theedgemalaysia.com/busin...ent-in-4q.html

SHANGHAI: Malaysia Airlines Cargo Sdn Bhd’s (MASkargo) Shanghai operations are expected to see a 35% year-on-year (y-o-y) rise in revenue in the last quarter of the year due to the overall economic recovery in China.

This was a sharp contrast to a 50% y-o-y decline in revenue in the first half of the year. It handled 50,000 tonnes of cargo last year.

MASkargo manager for northern region of China Jackie Song Jun said the expected sharp improvement was “also due to our company’s flight revenue management system, which fully uses and maximises the cargo space”.

As a result of the performance in the first half of 2009, he said the Shanghai operations may see a drop of 20% in revenue for the whole year due to a decrease in both yield and capacity.

Song said MASkargo had a frequency of 13 freighter flights per week last year, which had decreased to only 10 in the first half of 2009. Passenger flights too have dropped to eight times from 14 times per week.

MASkargo’s Shanghai operations contributed about 30% to its overall revenues, the second largest contributor after Kuala Lumpur.

“Since September till October MASkargo’s load factor has increased 10% due to a trade recovery in China,” Song added.

The Shanghai station’s main export markets are the Southeast Asian countries, which account for about 35% of the freight, while the rest is to Australia and Europe. “Europe is picking up very fast,” he said.

As for next year’s performance, Song is confident that the company will record a better result. “We are confident that the overall market will pick up. However, we have to look at the first-half result,” he said.

“The world export recovery will bring good opportunities for trading in China,” he added.
