Melaka Government Looks To Enter Aviation Industry By Introducing Melaka Air
May 28, 2010 20:29 PM

MELAKA, May 28 (Bernama) -- The Melaka government is looking into making inroads in the aviation industry by introducing "Melaka Air" to boost the tourism and aviation sectors in the state.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said for a start, they would study whether to rent a Boeing 737-400 aircraft or an Airbus 320 to offer flights from Melaka International Airport (LTAM) in Batu Berendam here.

"We will conduct a study on the viability and marketing aspects including public demand over the next three months before the state government makes a final decision on the matter."

He told this to reporters after flagging off the first flight for Melaka-Medan-Melaka route by community aviation company, Firefly, at the LTAM Friday.

He said among the destinations deemed suitable for the flights from LTAM were Jakarta, Pekan Baru, Palembang and Medan in Indonesia.

The state government's idea to establish its own aviation company came about after being disappointed by broken promises made by several airlines including AirAsia to use the LTAM for their local flights, he said.

"AirAsia promised to start its flight to Penang and Medan from LTAM this year, but it never happened. So, it is best for us to have our own airline and rent aircraft to boost activities at LTAM," he said.

At present, he said the RM160-million airport, launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Feb 4, was being used only by Riau Airlines, which flies five times a week from Melaka to Pekan Baru using a Fokker 50 aircraft.

Meanwhile, Mohd Ali said the state government was also planning to promote health-tourism especially among the people in Sumatera, Indonesia.

"Sumatera has a vast health-tourism market to be explored seriously by the state government. About 50,000 Indonesian tourists came to Melaka last year for health purposes," he said.

MAHB Sees 10 Per Cent Growth In Passenger Volume
May 27, 2010 15:32 PM

SEPANG, May 27 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) expects a 10 per cent growth in passenger traffic volume for this year, said its Managing Director, Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad.

"Our forecast for 2010 was done in November last year. At that point in time, the aviation industry was very uncertain.

"So, we took a conservative view of our growth at four to five per cent," he told reporters after the company's annual general meeting (AGM), here today.

In the last quarter of 2009, he said traffic volume started to pick up quite substantially.

According to Bashir, MAHB saw a 19 per cent growth in passenger traffic volume from January to April this year.

If this trend continues and remains strong, he said the 10 per cent growth is achievable.

He also disclosed that there would be one or two new airlines operating from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) by year-end.

Currently, he said about 59 airlines, are operating from the KLIA.

"One airline coming in is Royal Jordanian Airline. It used to operate from the KLIA before and is now returning," he explained.

On the development of 2,700 acres (1,258 hectares) of land around KLIA, Bashir said: "We have the masterplan ready and are talking to some interested parties.

"Hopefully, by year-end, we can make an announcement."

MAHB is looking at developments like factory outlets, a shopping mall, office blocks and also golf course.

MAHB Sets Three Goals In Five-Year Business Direction Plan
June 06, 2010 12:43 PM

LANGKAWI, June 6 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) hopes its commercial development will be the main driver towards its revenue over the next five years.

MAHB Chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman said increasing traffic, excellence in service and commercial development would be the main focus of the company.

"The targets are contained in our business direction plan "Runway to Success-Building a World-Class Airport Business 2010-2014" launched recently to determine the direction and road map of MAHB," he told reporters after opening Malaysia Airports Sports Carnival at the Lada Langkawi Stadium Saturday night.

The carnival will see 800 participants from 12 contingents from throughout the country, competing in 16 sports, over five days.

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.

AIRASIA X PLANS FOR IPO SECOND HALF OF 2011
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR. June 8 (NNN-Bernama): AirAsia Bhd's low-cost long-haul unit, AirAsia X, plans to seek public listing in the second half of next year, depending on the market conditions.

It is currently completing a RM100 million rights issue to achieve financial independence and fund its continued growth.

In a statement here, AirAsia group chief executive officer, Tony Fernandes, said the planned listing would give AirAsia X financial independence and the flexibility to develop its own growth strategy.

"After more than two years of operation, we have begun to notice some dilution of the AirAsia business model and recognise the need for AirAsia and AirAsia X to remain focus on their respective markets.

"We see this reorganisation as symbolic of it coming into its own as it flies into its next growth phase," he said.

AirAsia X, launched in November 2007, has achieved sufficient economies of scale to stand on its own instead of relying on services provided by AirAsia.

It recorded a revenue of RM720 million in 2009 and is projected to exceed RM1 billion this year, in just its third full year of operations.

The carrier booked a net profit of RM87 million in 2009 and has carried two million guests to date.

Meanwhile, AirAsia X is offering free seats to all its destinations for the first time.

This is in commemoration of its move into next growth phase.

The booking period is available for 48 hours from June 9-10, 2010 for the travel period from Oct 11 to Nov 14, 2010.

AIRASIA X OFFERS RETURN FARES FROM AUSTRALIA TO LONDON FOR UNDER A$250
Quote:
MELBOURNE, June 8 (NNN-Bernama): AirAsia X is offering return fares from Australia to Britain from under A$240 as part of a 48-hour sale.

The tax-only fares also apply on routes across the entire AirAsia X network covering Malaysia and beyond.

The booking period runs for 48 hours from June 9 to 10 for travel between October 11 and November 14, 2010.

AirAsia X said the sale was in conjunction with it being named the 2010 World's Best Low Cost Airline in the annual World Airline Survey by Skytrax for the second consecutive year.

Fares to London (Stansted) via Kuala Lumpur and back from the Gold Coast are from A$217, from Perth from A$235 and from Melbourne from A$240.

From just A$10, passengers can also fly one way from Kuala Lumpur to a range of other destinations including Hangzhou, Tianjin, Taipei, Mumbai and New Delhi.

MAHB to boost retail space in 5 airports
By Presenna NambiarPublished: 2010/06/15

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) (5014) plans to increase retail space in five airports by an average of 36 per cent this year, with an average revenue increase target of between 28 per cent and 30 per cent.

The targeted airports are the main terminals of Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Miri, Kota Kinabalu, Alor Star and Lang-kawi.

The commercial development of these airports will be based on the airport classification, as well as its customer profile.

MAHB has categorised its airports into four, namely, lifestyle, leisure, community and corporate social responsibility.

"KLIA for example, is a lifestyle airport, with more than 50 per cent of of passengers being business travellers.

"So when developing the (commercial) model, we are looking at providing services that would be needed by these travellers, such as meeting rooms, which go beyond what an airport would normally have," MAHB Commercial Services senior general manager Faizah Khairuddin told Business Times recently.

And the same goes for its other 38 airports in Malaysia, she says.

"No airport will be left out. Even the smallest airport with minimal amount of passengers will have at least a convenience store, to cater to passengers' needs," Faizah said.

MAHB's initiatives are part of its' five-year strategy to grow its commercial revenue contribution by a compounded annual growth rate of at least 8 per cent to RM1.4 billion by 2014.

Commercial development is the main driver to achieve group earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation of RM1 billion by 2014.

Alor Setar and Langkawi airports are expected to be full blown commercial models by the end of the year while, the terminal in Kota Kinabalu is expected to have its work completed by August.

The KLIA main terminal will undergo a refurbishment exercise this year, where most of its shops will be redone.

The focus on Miri will be to increase occupancy rate of retailers.

"We are very careful, we make sure that the right product and brands are placed for the targeted segments," Faizah said.

DEPUTY MINISTER DAWOS TO MEET AIRLINES OVER FLIGHT DELAYS
Quote:
KUCHING, Malaysia June 19 (NNN-Bernama) -- Federal Deputy Tourism Minister Dr James Dawos Mamit said he would meet with Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and AirAsia to find ways for the two airlines to reduce flight cancellations and delays to avert a negative impact on the country's tourism industry.

"I am disappointed with the flight delays because they can have a negative impact on the perception of tourists," he told reporters here last night.

Dawos's flight from Miri to Kuching was delayed by 30 minutes and he was late for the appreciation dinner of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) meeting.

He said he had also received complaints from tourists on flight changes and cancellations without notice.

"When I was at the Miri airport, I saw tourists scheduled to travel from Miri to Mulu being informed of the flight cancellation, and no reason was given. The tourists were very disappointed," he said.

Formula to ensure room for MAS, AirAsia to grow
By Presenna NambiarPublished: 2010/06/29
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz0s8TCQMFE

THE Transport Ministry will work on a formula to enable both AirAsia and Malaysia Airlines to develop and grow commercially.

However, it stopped short of saying that it will come up with a national aviation policy.

"We will only work on policy changes based on need," recently appointed Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said when asked on whether his ministry would look to develop such a policy. He was officiating at a two-day "Pillars of Aviation" conference in Kuala Lumpur yesterday, entitled "Bridging the Gap Between Emerging Markets".

Kong said the expansion of the local aviation industry provides room for both airlines to grow.

In his speech, he said the government is aware that strengthening the aviation industry is key to the development of business and commercial sectors.

"Our g overnment will always proactively ensure that the aviation industry in Malaysia maintains its agility and flexibility to respond to any changing circumstances in order to continuously grow and prosper," Kong added.

Meanwhile, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) senior general manager of operation services Datuk Azmi Murad told participants that it targets the current low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) to breach the 16 million passenger mark by year-end.

The LCCT was extended in March 2009 to accommodate 15 million passengers a year.

The new permanent LCCT, which has a design capacity of 30 million passengers annually, is due to be ready by early 2012.

Azmi said with June coming to a close, MAHB saw 18.9 per cent growth in passenger volume in the first six months of the year for all 39 of its airports in Malaysia.

The Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) performed slightly better at 20 per cent growth compared to last year's.

Azmi said the growth was largely contributed by regional legacy carriers and the low-cost airlines.

MAHB is also working on enabling seamless transfers of passengers and baggage from the main terminal in KLIA and the current LCCT, and vice-versa.

The move is expected to allow passengers to check in themselves and their baggage at the terminal of arrival.

"We are fine-tuning things now, but should be able to start offering it by the end of the year," Azmi said.

The initiative is part of MAHB's move to ease travel for some 500 passengers on average a day, who move from the main terminal and LCCT.

New Delhi job keeps Malaysia Airports flying high
By Zuraimi Abdullah Published: 2010/07/05
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz0slzePqpo



NEW DELHI: India may turn out to be Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd's (MAHB) (5014) signature overseas venture given expectations of a rapid increase in the number of people turning to air travel on the Indian subcontinent.

MAHB currently helps manage four international airports in India, Turkey and the Maldives. They include the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad and the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport here, India's largest.

The IGI Airport is seen as the most lucrative for MAHB as there are plans to raise its passenger capacity to 100 million over the next decade.

MAHB owns a 10 per cent stake in the consortium led by India's GMR group which was given a 30-year concession in 2006 to manage and expand the IGI Airport.
The company, however, will have to wait a bit longer before reaping the fruits of its labour in the world's second most populous nation, MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said.

"The airport industry has a long gestation period. It will take six to seven year before we can see significant returns from our investments abroad," he told visiting Malaysian reporters here last Saturday.

The IGI Airport's Terminal 3 (T3) has increased passenger capacity to 34 million. Its next phase of expansion in six to seven years will raise the capacity to some 60 million to 70 million passengers.

"There will be Phases 2 and 3 for the IGI Airport," Bashir said.

The IGI Airport currently handles some 24 million passengers a year.

India is forecast to handle a whopping 180 million passengers by 2020, with total investments in its aviation sector expected to be more than US$100 billion (RM322 billion) in that period.

India's Minister of Civil Aviation, Praful Patel, is optimistic of the country's aviation sector.

"India is now the ninth largest aviation market in the world. In a short period of time, maybe five years, we will become among the top five," he said. -

MAHB sees 12pc rise in passenger volume
Published: 2010/07/23
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz0uUZFtSUn

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) expects an average growth of 12 per cent in passenger traffic volume this year in line with the global economic recovery.

The projection was based on positive numbers in the first half which included a 17 per cent growth in passenger volume, Managing Director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said today.

"At the moment, it is a good time for the industry.

"The market and the economy in the whole region are recovering," he told reporters at the launch of "Indulge Till You Fly" campaign by MAHB Chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman in Sepang.

Last year, MAHB recorded an average passenger volume growth of eight per cent with the international sector growing nine per cent while domestic sector seven per cent.

Bashir said MAHB handled 51 million passengers last year with KL International Airport (KLIA) and the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) alone carrying about 30 million passengers.

Meanwhile, MAHB Senior General Manager for Commercial Services Faizah Khairuddin said the company also expected a 20 to 30 per cent growth in retail sales this year from RM1 billion in 2009.

"This is a double bonus for MAHB because of passenger growth and better spending especially in LCCT," she said.

The Indulge Till You Fly campaign is one of MAHB's growth strategies for its commercial development, serving and underscoring the two-pronged aim of revolutionising the retail experience and driving new income streams.

The six-month campaign from July 24, 2010 to Jan 6, 2011 involves five international airports under MAHB, namely KLIA and LCCT in Sepang, Penang International Airport, Langkawi International Airport, Kuching International Airport and Kota Kinabalu International Airport.

Prizes worth RM2 million are up for grabs during the campaign.

They include first-class air tickets and holiday packages worth more than RM80,000 to London, Sydney and Cape Town.

MAS, AirAsia X get rights to fly to Haneda
Published: 2010/08/02
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz0vQ8WAf3H

TWO Malaysian carriers have each been granted rights to fly to Haneda in Japan three times a week by the local government.

Although the Malaysian government secured traffic rights for seven flights a week to the alternative airport in Tokyo, it allowed Malaysia Airlines (MAS) (3786) and low-cost long-haul carrier AirAsia X three flights each and retained one.

AirAsia X's flights to Haneda Airport are "still pending application", its chief executive officer Azran Osman-Rani said as to when it would begin operation.

MAS will introduce three flights a week between Kota Kinabalu and Haneda from November 15, its managing director and chief executive officer Tengku Datuk Azmil Zahruddin said.
"Haneda is basically like our Subang airport, while Narita Airport is a bigger airport. Haneda is a lot nearer to Tokyo and was previously open to domestic flights only. But due to the congestion at Narita, the Japanese government is opening it up to international flights," he added.

MAS plans to use its new B737-800 aircraft, which will be delivered in October, for this route.

In addition, MAS will increase its weekly frequency from Kuala Lumpur to destinations such as New Delhi, Hyderabad, Sydney, Brisbane, Narita and Kansai.

Starting next month, MAS will fly 12 times a week to New Delhi, from seven times currently, and increase its weekly flights to Hyderabad to five, from four.

In October, MAS will offer two additional weekly flights on top of the 12 to Sydney and increase its flights to Brisbane to five, from two at present.

In November, its Kuala Lumpur-Narita flights will be increased to 11 times a week, from nine.

As of January next year, MAS will start flying between Kota Kinabalu and Kansai in Japan twice a week.

The airline will also increase flights between Kuala Lumpur and Kansai to six times a week, from four.

MAS picks Kota Kinabalu as its eastern hub
Published: 2010/08/10
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...skota/Article/

MALAYSIA Airlines (3786) yesterday announced that it has chosen Kota Kinabalu to be its eastern hub, as the airline sets its sights on China, Taiwan, North Asia, Indonesia and Australia markets.

Its managing director cum chief executive officer Tengku Datuk Azmil Zahruddin said the hub will be developed over three stages from November 15 to June 3 next year, where new destinations and frequencies will be added to complement the currently served foreign cities from Kota Kinabalu.

"We picked Kota Kinabalu in Sabah to leverage on the strategic location of the city as an ideal gateway to promote travels between the markets mentioned.

"This is the right time to develop the (eastern) hub, with the upturn of this industry in Asia. It provides us opportunity for growth in yield, load factor and destinations - we expect a potential improvement of between RM60 million and RM100 million per annum to our bottom line as a result," he said when making the announcement in |Kota Kinabalu.
To facilitate the setting up of the hub, all 150 flight technicians and 250 cabin crew and six planes - two B737-800s and four B734s - will be based in Kota Kinabalu no later than June next year.

The first new destination introduced will be three non-stop weekly services to Haneda (Tokyo) effective November 15 2010, followed by twice weekly services to Osaka effective January 15 2011. The Seoul route, meanwhile, will be increased in January to four flights a week from twice a week currently.

"By June 2011, Kota Kinabalu will have daily flights to Taipei and Hong Kong, four weekly flights to Kaohsiung (Taiwan) and Seoul, and three weekly services to Haneda and twice weekly to Osaka.

"Other new international destinations to cities in China, Indonesia and Australia is in the planning and will be announced in future," he said.

At the same time, Kuching will have more access to these international destinations when flights to Kota Kinabalu is increased to 25 flights a week, from the current 14 flights weekly.

"Malaysia Airlines will also be synchronising the flights schedules from Kota Kinabalu with MASwings and vice versa, to offer better connectivity," he added. - Bernama
