MAS flies high with dual acclamation
2009/11/22

KUALA LUMPUR: It was a double celebration for Malaysia Airlines recently when it was awarded the 5-Star Airline for the fifth consecutive year and the World's Best Cabin Staff for the seventh time by Skytrax, a UK-based organisation with 20 years experience in airline research.

Malaysia Airlines has been accredited as a 5-Star airline by Skytrax since 2005 while its cabin crew has won the World's Best Cabin Staff award for 2001-2004, 2007, 2009-2010.

"This is great news, particularly in today's tough environment where all employees have been working very hard to deliver products and services that matter to the customer. What matters to them, matters to us," Malaysia Airlines' Managing Director and CEO Tengku Datuk Azmil Zahruddin.

Skytrax CEO Edward Plaisted said in awarding the 5-Star airline ranking to Malaysia Airlines, they recognised the consistent front-line performance of the airline during recent tough times for the industry.

"The 5-Star Airline status is awarded only to airlines achieving the very highest quality performance, and this top tier award for Malaysia Airlines pays respect to their ability to deliver the right combination of product and service," he said.

Malaysia Airlines was also recently voted as "Asia's Leading Airline" by over 180,000 industry professionals in a global poll conducted by the World Travel Awards.

Other recognitions that Malaysia Airlines received this year include Airline of the Year by Malaysia Airport Holding Bhd, finishing 3rd in Top Performing Company by Aviation Week and 8th in Top Airlines Worldwide Category by Smart Travel Asia. - BERNAMA

Kuching International Airport Records Higher Passenger Volume, Says MAHB
By Caroline Jackson December 02, 2009 13:43 PM

KUCHING, Dec 2 (Bernama) -- The passenger volume at the Kuching International Airport rose by seven per cent to 2.9 million between January and October from 2.7 million in the same period last year, said Datuk Azmi Murad, Senior General Manager (Operations) of Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB).

"The Miri, Sibu and Bintulu airports also saw more passengers using our airport facilities.

"We are looking at improving the facilities at all times," he told BERNAMA after launching Apron Safety Campaign 2009 at the Kuching International Airport.

Azmi said the Kuching International Airport, in operations for 26 years, did not see any major mishaps at the airside area.

"The airport's reputation would be at stake if there were mishaps due to human negligence and lack of safety management, he said.

On the progress of the new Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) project near the KL International Airport in Sepang, Azmi said MAHB aimed to complete the RM1.2 billion facility in the third quarter of 2011.

"We are working closely with budget airline AirAsia and work is going on well," he said, adding that once operational, the LCCT would have 30 million passenger capacity a year.

It would also have the provision for future expansion to handle up to 45 million air travellers per year.

He, however, said there was no immediate plan to build a similar terminal in Sarawak as the existing airports were able to handle current passenger volume.

The focus on safety of airports and to make them on par or higher than other airports in the region would be more challenging in future, he said.

Azmi said Sarawak had a lot to offer, especially for foreign airlines and as such, MAHB would continue to support other airlines to ensure efficient operations.

KIA among the country’s safest airports
By Geryl Ogilvy Ruekeith Thursday, December 3rd, 2009



LIKE THIS: Azmi (front) demonstrates the proper
way to put out a fire with an extinguisher.


KUCHING: The Kuching International Airport (KIA) is among the best nationwide in the implementation of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) management system.

In its 26 years of operation, there have been no major incidences reported at KIA’s airside area and last Aug 24, it received the Safety Management System (SMS) Certificate from the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA).

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAB) operations senior general manager Datuk Azmi Murad said KIA had received the SMS Certificate ahead of Singapore’s Changi Airport.

“It is our priority to achieve a zero-level incidence rate. For every 1,000 aircraft movements, our incidence rate now is only about 0.0053 per cent.

“Considering that KIA handles an average of 100 movements per day, the volume is 36,500 yearly. Based on our incidence rate of 0.0053 per cent daily, annually our incidence rate is 0.193 per cent, which is still below 1 per cent. That is the benchmark that we will measure on,” he said at the launching of the ‘Apron Safety Campaign 2009’ yesterday.

Azmi pointed out that besides KIA, only four other international airports in the country lived up to that benchmark.

He explained that an airport’s achievement is not only measured by the number of passengers, aircraft and cargo handled every year or awards won, but also the safety aspect of its operations.

He added that airports must be in compliance with the regulations set by regulatory bodies such as the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), Airports Council International (ACI) and DCA.

Azmi also said that all agencies must work as a team as every agency played its role to ensure that the airport is free from any untoward incidents and accidents.

“MAB and all other agencies at the airport must make it a top priority to tackle any OSH issues at the airside area. The safety requirements must be met and all non-value added factors must be eliminated. It will save protective time and operation cost,” he said.

He further advised all airport enforcement units to take action on any safety lapse involving staff working at the airport.

Azmi emphasised that aircraft accidents not only occurred in the air, but also happened on the ground if proper safety measures are not followed according to the specifications of regulatory bodies such as ICAO and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

“It is important to enhance the aspect of safety awareness at the airside area together with the airline operator committee, ground handlers, DCA and other agencies in order to ensure all of us follow safety requirements,” he said.

Meanwhile, KIA senior manager Sunif Naiman said the ‘Apron Safety Campaign 2009’ was the first ever organised involving all agencies related to KIA operations.

Themed ‘Safety is Everybody’s Responsibility - Think Safety, Work Safely’, Sunif said the campaign aimed to enhance awareness and make known OSH mandatory requirements to all KIA staff regarding OSH in the workplace.

“The campaign will be a platform for all KIA workers and operators to share safety information, to promote safe work practices and to minimise and avoid all unnecessary incidents and accidents,” he said.

National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) state office head Ahmad Zaki, a speaker for the campaign, said it is vital for KIA to practise OSH regulations.

“Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) 94, airports operations fall under the Transport, Storage and Communication Industries of the 10 industries required to practise the OSHA 94,” he said.

He explained that although it is not mandatory for KIA to appoint a Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) officer, the safety code of conduct must be strictly practised.

“Safety, health and welfare are the responsibility of those who created the risk and those exposed to it. It is important for KIA to protect all its guests, adopt a working environment that is safe theoretically and physically,” stressed Ahmad.

He further advised all major organisations to install a safety policy in the workplace with a Hazards Identification, Risk Assessment and Risk Control (HIRARC) system to further improved the OSH Management System.

WCT bags RM363m LCCT job
Written by Isabelle Francis Thursday, 03 December 2009 11:21

KUALA LUMPUR: WCT BHD has clinched the first of the job packages, worth some RM363 million, from Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) for the new RM2 billion low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT).

WCT told Bursa Malaysia yesterday it had on Dec 1, 2009, accepted the award for the RM363 million contract, which should boost the company’s outstanding order book by 14% to RM2.86 billion from RM2.5 billion.

It said the scope of works comprised site preparation, earthworks and main drainage. The works are expected to be completed by Jan 1, 2011.

The new LCCT, which would be located 1.5km from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang, is scheduled to be completed by the third quarter of 2011.

The new airport is expected to cater to 30 million passengers yearly, with capacity expansion up to 45 million passengers a year.

MAHB recently said it had picked the project management company and pre-qualified 97 out of 132 candidate consultants for 38 packages under the entire LCCT development.

Other job components at the LCCT include the CONSTRUCTION of the terminal building and runway.

It is publicly known that GAMUDA BHD , IJM CORPORATION BHD and SUNWAY HOLDINGS BHD want the LCCT job. Other potential bidders in analysts’ radar include Fajarbaru Builder Group Bhd and MUDAJAYA GROUP BHD [].

CIMB Research had, in a November note, said WCT stood a good chance of securing more contracts before year-end, ahead of the other contractors under its coverage.

“We maintain our earnings forecasts which factor in RM2 billion worth of new jobs in 2009, which should be achievable,” the note said.

CIMB estimates that WCT will post a RM167.5 million net profit for the year ending Dec 31, 2009 on the back of a RM3.14 billion revenue. This compares with market consensus earnings of RM157 million.

The research house noted that year to date, WCT had clinched RM1.3 billion worth of new jobs. This means that including the RM363 million LCCT job, the contractor’s order book is nearing the projected RM2 billion.

CIMB also said WCT remained one of the contenders for the RM7 billion LRT upgrade/extension in the Klang Valley.

It said WCT continued to stand out as one of the main beneficiaries of the goverment’s fiscal pump-priming as it had a track record of winning open tender jobs by merit and of being an efficient and low-cost contractor.

Since November, there have been seven analysts calling a buy on the stock, one sell, one fully valued, one underperform and one outperform, with target prices ranging from RM1.99 to RM3.92.

WCT closed at RM2.60 yesterday. The counter is trading at about 25 times price-to-earnings ratio (PER) versus industry average of 16.5 times.

Meanwhile, the new LCCT terminal will measure 150,000 sq m and include a 6,000-bay multi-storey car park as well as an integrated transport hub for buses and taxis.

The project will also see the construction of 70 aircraft parking apron bays as well as a third runway, measuring 4km in length. The project is the single largest PFI (private finance initiative) building project under the infrastructure allocation of the second stimulus package.

It is understood that funding is a non-issue for MAHB given its RM700 million cash pile and about RM1 billion in short-term facility.

Furthermore, under the new operating pact with the government, MAHB will only bear the operating expenditure while the government will retain control of national airport development policy and bear the development capital expenditure.

SIA: No plan to pull out of KL-S'pore route
Published: 2009/12/04

The emergence of low-cost airlines on the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore route has eroded the market of traditional airlines, with Singapore Airlines (SIA) expected to either reduce its capacity or pull out from the route.

According to an industry source, SIA could also hand over its capacity to sister airline Silk Air, just like it did for the Penang route.

SIA and Silk Air have been flying four times daily each on the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore route since December 2008.

Budget competitors on the route include AirAsia and Tiger Airways.

An analyst when asked to comment on SIA's possible move said it was not a surprise with the presence of low-cost carriers.

"It is reasonable to expect SIA to even cut off the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore route if it is not going to be profitable for them," he said today.

But he said the airline's presence would still be felt on the route as it has a 49 per cent stake in Tiger Airways.

He noted that this could also prompt Malaysia Airlines (MAS) to undertake the same measure and allow its own community airline FireFly to take over.

Firefly has a four times daily flight frequency that is targeted at the business community while MAS has an average of six daily flights to Singapore.

"SIA is known as one of the most profitable and cost-efficient airlines in the world, and if they cannot survive at some point, it makes for a good argument that MAS should also reduce its frequency there," the analyst said.

However, an SIA spokesperson when contacted said the airline at this stage has no plan to withdraw from the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore route. -- Bernama

MAS unit seals MoUs for future technology
3rd December, 2009



The Prime Minister (background centre)
witnesses the signing of the MoUs.


LANGKAWI: MAS Aerospace Engineering Sdn Bhd (MAE) has signed memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with Pratt & Whitney (PW) and KRAUSS GmbH Aviation Technologies, in an effort to place itself at the forefront of new aircraft technology.

MAE is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines.

The MoU with PW will see both parties exploring the possibility of setting up a joint venture company for nacelle and composite repair and overhaul.

Meanwhile, the MoU with KRAUSS is aimed at providing parts repair for engines, landing gears and airframes.

Commenting on the MoU with PW here yesterday, Malaysia Airlines general manager for engineering and maintenance – KLIA, Rashidi Saidin said the company hopes to set up the joint venture entity within six months.

“As aircraft technology evolves, we are constantly exploring strategic partnerships to ensure MAE is at the forefront of new technology.

“These collaborations will make us highly competitive. Not only will we have the technological expertise but be more cost competitive compared to many maintenance, repair and overhauls (MROs),” he added.

The signing ceremony was held at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition 2009 (LIMA 2009) here and was witnessed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

At the same event, Malaysia Airlines managing director/chief executive officer, Tengku Datuk Azmil Zahruddin presented letters of employment and staff identification tags to three Malaysia Airlines Engineering Training Centre (METC) Felda scheme trainees.

The trio represent the first group of 69 Felda trainess who will be absorbed into MAS’ workforce.

MAHB retail revenue set to rise
By June Ramlee Published: 2009/12/18

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014) expects revenue contribution from commercial or non-aeronautical activities to rise to 65 per cent at the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang by 2012.

Currently, 50 per cent of the airport's annual revenue totalling some RM360 million comes from commercial activities.

"We have spent RM50 million to renovate the retail space in the airport over the last 17 months to give it a new ambience and to keep up with the time as the airport is close to 11 years old," chairman Tan Sri Aris Othman told reporters after the launch of KLIA's Satellite Retail Optimisation Project (SROP) in Sepang yesterday.

Aris said the SROP involves the construction of a walkway through the forest reserve at the centre core of the satellite building and a circular viewing gallery at the mezzanine level.
Its renovation earlier saw the addition of new high-end boutiques such as Aigner and several international food and beverages chains.

Its in-house surveys showed that passengers who come to KLIA only spend RM36 per trip, which is one of the lowest in the world compared with other international airports worldwide.

MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said the airports in Kuching, Kota Kinabalu and Penang are also being upgraded to increase retail space, but did not reveal the investment.

Garuda aims to reinstate flights from KL to Denpasar, Medan
By Sharen Kaur
Published: 2009/12/21

Indonesia's national carrier Garuda Indonesia plans to reinstate its flights from Kuala Lumpur to Denpasar in Bali and Medan by September 2010, six years after the service was halted.

Joseph Tendean, general manager for Malaysia, said Garuda will use its new 737-800 aircraft to fly daily from Kuala Lumpur to the two destinations.

"We have the landing rights and will apply for a time slot in mid-2010," he said in an interview with Business Times in Kuala Lumpur recently.

Garuda stopped air travel from KL to Denpasar and Medan in 2004 due to poor traffic mainly due to the Bali bombings.

Tendean said Garuda is looking to grow its Malaysian business, which contributes around 3-5 per cent to group net profit and revenue.

Garuda, which made an operating revenue of RM7 billion last year, currently operates one daily flight for its KL-Jakarta-Lombok-Jakarta-KL route.

"Our load factor for the KL-Jakarta-KL route is around 70 per cent. This is an amazing increase from 45 per cent last year when it first started," Tendean said.

The flight to Lombok was introduced on November 1 this year. Garuda is using its 737-300 aircraft for the service but will switch to 737-800 in May 2010.

The carrier's fleet, which now consists of 63 aircraft, will double by 2014. It is buying new Boeing 777s, 737s and Airbus A330-200s.

"We have a few plans here. We know that Denpasar, Medan and Lombok are popular among Malaysians. Flight frequencies may increase in the near future." he added.

Garuda has code share agreements with more than seven airlines in Asia Pacific, including Malaysia Airlines (MAS) to help it strengthen its business.

Its partnership with MAS was inked six years ago, when it stopped flights to Bali and Medan.

"The partnership with the airlines is important to help Garuda grow. Competition is stiffer due to excess capacity led by weaker demand for travel.

"We are competing with Merpati Air and Lion Air for traffic here, which is why we developed the Lombok route," Tendean said.

Tendean said he expects the business from Kuala Lumpur to Lombok to be positive thanks to Malaysian companies like Sime Darby, Tabung Haji, Felcra and Felda hiring workers from the region.

He said there are some 50,000 people from Lombok employed in Malaysia and that is set to grow.

New airport for Mukah
19 Dec 2009

KUCHING: Mukah will get a RM600mil airport to cater to its rapid growth as the Sarawak Corri-dor of Renewable Energy’s (Score) central administrative centre.

Mukah Division Resident Saudi Narani said the proposed airport was being designed, adding that the site survey work for the project was underway.

“The new airport will cater for B737-800W aircraft and larger passenger capacity.

“Half the funds approved for the project is already available,” he told about 100 participants at a seminar organised by Angkatan Zaman Mansang Sarawak (Azam) to provide updates on Score.

Saudi, who presented a paper on Score: Current developments and challenges in Mukah, said the existing airport in Mukah could only accommodate 18-seater Twin-Otter aircraft.

Presently, MasWing operates flights between Mukah and Kuching and the Mukah-Miri sector.

A new international airport is also being planned for the Tanjung Manis halal hub in Mukah Division.

Sarawak Timber Industry Development Corporation (STIDC) deputy general manager Hashim Bojet said the proposed airport would have transhipment facilities for halal products for the export market.

He said the 1.5km runway of the present Tanjung Manis airport, operated by STIDC, would be extended to 3km.

A new road to connect Sibu and Tanjung Manis is under construction.

Mukah and Tanjung Manis are two of the five major growth nodes for Score, the others being Samalaju in Bintulu Division, Baram in Miri Division and Tunoh in Kapit Division.

Saudi said Mukah Division, a traditional fishing village and the heartland of the Melanaus, will be transformed into a smart city to serve as a knowledge centre for human capital development, and research and development centre for resource-based industries.
