MAHB sets year-end timeline yet again
by Doreen Leong, 15 Sep 2008 11:07 AM THEEDGEDAILY

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is confident the group’s long- overdue restructuring would be finalised by year-end, pending certain outstanding issues that includes approvals from various government bodies.

“As it is, everything is moving; we might even finalise the proposal before year-end,” its managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad Abdul Majid told The Edge Financial Daily recently.

While Bashir was quite positive that the year-end target would be met, many within the investing community are still doubtful if the restructuring would come to fruition because it has been talked about for the past few years now.

The restructuring plan basically addresses payments to the government particularly in relation to the lease payments of RM826.7 million and annual lease rental charges. The restructuring is to match cash flow with the obligations of the operator.

The share price of MAHB reached a 52-week low of RM2.46 last Wednesday versus a high of RM3.62 on Oct 31 last year. The stock rose another two sen to RM2.48 last Friday, with 7,000 shares done.

Despite the long outstanding issue, analysts were quite bullish on the counter, recommending a buy with target prices ranging from RM3.40 to RM4 given its limited exposure to high oil prices and prospective gross dividend yield of 6.7% with further upside.

MAHB posted strong net profit growth of 19% year-on-year to RM66 million in the second quarter ended June 30, 2008.

Analysts expected the airport operator to register higher growth from its non-aeronautical businesses in the second half of the year on the back of increased retail space and better management of commercial opportunities.

On the outstanding airport charges settled by AirAsia Bhd recently, Bashir declined to provide the actual sum. “All I can say is that what was owing to us was fully settled by AirAsia and we are happy with the settlement,” he said.

Last month, AirAsia’s group chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes said AirAsia had reached an amicable resolution with MAHB and it had paid the agreed settlement amount to MAHB. The two parties agreed to keep the settlement sum confidential.

In May, Transport Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat said AirAsia owed MAHB RM110.36 million in service charges since 2002. However, AirAsia disputed the amount, saying that it owed only RM62.6 million.

Kedah hopes Lion Air will introduce Medan-Alor Star flights
By MOHD NASIR YUSOFF Bernama - Wednesday, September 17

JAKARTA, Sept 16 (Bernama) – The Kedah government is hoping that Lion Air, Indonesia's leading budget airline will introduce direct Medan-Alor Star flights to boost the state's tourism industry.

State Economic Planning Unit (EPU) director Datuk Bashirudin Abdul Jamil said other than the many tourist attractions, Kedah also offers health services and educational opportunities to Indonesian students.

"Tourists to Kedah have lots of places to visit and things to do. Indonesians who had been going to Penang for health services can opt for Alor Star and Sungai Petani which have well equipped hospitals and at much lower cost," he told Bernama here recently.

Indonesians could also tap into education as Kedah is home to several institutions of higher learning like Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), Kolej Universiti Insaniyah, UiTM, and AIMST University in Sungai Petani.

KEDAH-INDONESIA 2 (LAST) Jakarta

Some 500 Indonesian undergraduates are taking degree courses in institutions of higher learning in Kedah.

Bashirudin who is also Kedah deputy state secretary said the Medan-Alor Star flight would also make Kedah the gateway for Indonesian tourists to Haadyai and other towns in southern Thailand.

He said the state government would cooperate fully with Lion Air to make the Medan-Alor Star flight take-off as Kedah would be extending Visit Kedah Year 2008 to 2009.

Govt approval for further extension of Malacca airport
Wednesday September 17, 2008 TheStar

MALACCA: The Federal Government has agreed to provide additional funds to extend Batu Berendam Airport’s 1.8km runway by 400m to 2.2km.

This would enable passenger aircraft like the Airbus A-320 and Boeing 737 to land at the facility.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said he raised the matter with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawis on Sept 10 when he was in Malacca to break fast with state Umno leaders.

“I made the appeal to him again during his visit here and he agreed,” he told reporters after presenting aid to 40 policemen’s widows at the Police Contingent Headquarters in Bukit Beruang.

He said, without the longer runway, air carriers would not be able to fully load planes bound for several regional destinations and this would stunt the state’s health tourism.

Mohd Ali said the state received 64,000 medical tourists, mostly Indonesians, last year and was ahead of Penang, Federal Territory, Selangor and Johor in attracting such tourists.

An initial RM131mil project to extend the runway to 1.8km fell short as the additional 400m was required for the bigger planes to land.

The project began last December and is scheduled for completion by April 2009.

Mohd Ali said the Transport Ministry would liaise with the Economic Planning Unit in the Prime Minister’s Department to determine the additional allocation.

MAHB to call for proposals
By Kang Siew Li Published: 2008/09/18 BusinessTimes

MALAYSIA Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) will start calling for proposals from developers and investors interested in developing its 1,092ha land around the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang.

MAHB general manager of land development, Muhd Najib Mohd Rawi, said the request for proposal (RFP) will be advertised in local newspapers on September 24.

"Interested parties can collect the RFP documents from us. The RFP will contain a brief of the development, land details and our expectations," he told Business Times.

"Proposals are due by November 21 2008, two months from the RFP announcement as we want to give interested parties ample time to work on the proposals," he added.

MAHB is expected to inform short-listed bidders of the status of their bids in the RFP within two months of the closing date.

"We expect to identify the right partners in the first quarter of 2009 and begin construction in phases. Because the land is huge, we will continue to seek partners both locally and abroad to work with through roadshows and international property exhibitions," said Muhd Najib, adding that the company has so far received "quite a number" of enquiries from local developers on the project.

MAHB has a 40-year lease of 9,690ha land at KLIA starting from 1998. Of this total, 6,400ha are for non-aeronautical activities and the rest for aeronautical activities and facilities such as ramp, apron and runway.

MAHB is opening 1,092ha of the total non-aeronautical land, currently planted with oil palm, for development over the next 10 to 15 years, is in line with its long-term goal to make KLIA an airport city.

Meanwhile, MAHB is still awaiting approval from the Sepang Municipal Council on its master plan of the project, dubbed "KLIA Aeropolis".

MAHB To Commercialise Its Reserved Land Around Airports
July 14, 2008 20:14 PM

KOTA BAHARU, July 14 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) plans to commercially utilise its reserved land around airports, especially the land around the KL International Airport (KLIA), with the view to increasing its income.

General Manager of MAHB Land Management, Muhd Najib Mohd Rawi said apart from being developed into oil palm and coconut plantations, the land will be also developed with commercial buildings to house offices and industries.

"We have seen in overseas, the land near airports have very high value due to the easily available transportation facility for the marketing of products," he told reporters after launching the Smart Programme organised by MAHB at the Pengkalan Chepa secondary school here Monday.

Muhd Najib said KLIA had reserved land amounting to 7,200 hectares with a large part of it planted with oil palm besides housing the Sepang International Circuit, hotels and commercial buildings.

"The available land will be commercialised based on the agreement set by KLIA given its increased value now," he said.

As for the Sultan Abdul Aziz Subang Airport, it has been developed into the country's aerospace centre besides being a training centre for flight trainings, as well as the repair centre for helicopters and aircraft and it also has several office buildings.

Kuala Terengganu as hub to Far East proposed
Thursday June 5, 2008, TheStar

KUALA TERENGGANU: Terengganu wants the Sultan Mahmud Airport here to be a hub for destinations to China and Vietnam.

“The airport is located close to Kunming in China, Saigon and Hong Kong, so airlines operating these routes could establish their regional offices here,” Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said said after chairing the weekly state exco meeting here yesterday.

Ahmad said the new airport terminal and extended runway could accommodate Boeing 747s from September.

“We will also see flights carrying 8,000 pilgrims from east coast states from the airport here directly to Mecca,

“Twenty Boeing 747s owned by Malaysia Airlines will use the airport to ferry pilgrims to the Holy Land,” he said.

Ahmad said 15 cargo planes, all B747s, will be used to transport horses for the World Equestrian Endurance Championship at Lembah Bidong, Setiu, this November.

“Therefore, the airport could be elevated to a regional hub so that passengers could fly direct to China and Hong Kong,” he said.

Ahmad said the state government would also build an aircraft refuelling facility at the airport for planes to transit.

He also said that Tabung Haji had agreed to build a complex for pilgrims on a 2.8ha site near the airport.

Longer Landing Strip At LTBB To Accommodate Boeing 737 And Airbus 320
August 06, 2008 18:51 PM

MELAKA, Aug 6 (Bernama) -- The Melaka State Assembly was told today that the landing strip at the Batu Berendam Airport (LTBB) would be extended to allow landing by Boeing 737 and Airbus 320.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the extension of the landing strip, which length would be 1,800 metres from 1,350 metres previously, was part of the LTBB (Lapangan Terbang Batu Berendam) expansion project, costing RM131.5 million, which began in April 2007 and scheduled for completion in April next year.

He said the project was aimed at improving facilities for health tourists.

"There has been a sharp increase in health tourist arrivals, from 18,295 people in 2004 to 67,201 last year, which is an increase of 367 percent," he said in response to a question by Datuk Abdul Wahab Abdul Latip (BN-Durian Tunggal)today.

Mohd Ali said the state government had held discussions with several airlines, including Airasia, Firefly and a company from China, to make LTBB as hub for cargo and passenger flights for the southern region.

"Apart from that, Sun Power, a company which has invested RM2.2 billion in Melaka, is negotiating with Malaysia Airport Sdn Bhd for a cargo flight," he added.

On the drop in number of passengers to land at LTBB, from 44,275 in 2004 to 26,218 last year, Mohd Ali said this was because only the Riau Airlines continued to operate its Pekan Baru-Melaka-Pekan Baru flight after 2006 compared with three airlines in 2004.

Berjaya Air ceased its Subang-Melaka-Pekan Baru-Melaka-Subang flight at the LTBB in February 2006, while the Merpati Nusantara Airlines ceased its operations at the airport in April 2005.

To a supplementary question from Khoo Poay Tiong (DAP-Ayer Keroh), Mohd Ali said the state government had submitted an application to the federal government to extend the landing strip at LTBB by another 400 metres to 2,200 metres for full load landing by a Boeing 737.

On a suggestion by Betty Chew Gek Cheng (DAP-Kota Laksamana), Mohd Ali said he agreed with her that Melaka and Penang which had been accorded a World Heritage City status to collaborate in the promotion of both cities.

Meanwhile, State Tourism, Culture and Heritage Committee Chairman Datuk Seet Har Cheow said 3.246 million domestic and foreign tourists visited Melaka during the first six months of this year.

"This is an increase of 17.3 percent in tourist arrivals in the state over the same period last year," he said in response to a question from Latipah Omar (BN-Taboh Naning).

AirAsia To Start Operation In Melaka's Bukit Berendam Airport Dec 8
Aug 13 2008

MELAKA, Aug 13 (Bernama) -- Low cost carrier AirAsia is expected to start its operations this December 8 at Melaka's Batu Berendam Airport (LTBB) which is undergoing a facelift worth RM131.5 million.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said six destinations had been identified by Air Asia for its initial operations comprising four places in Sumatra and two domestic destinations.

"The destinations jointly agreed upon, using the Boeing 737 aircraft, are Palembang, Pekan Baru, Padang and Medan in Sumatra, and Pulau Pinang and Langkawi," he told reporters after chairing the Exco meeting here Wednesday.

Also present at Wednesday's event was Air Asia chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes, chairman of Air Asia Datuk Aziz Bakar and the general manager of Malaysia Airports Bhd, Abdul Rahman Karim.

Mohd Ali said the four major towns in Sumatra were selected based on their potential for medical tourism while Pulau Pinang and Langkawi for their popularity as tourist destinations.

"Among other destinations being suggested are Jakarta, Kota Kinabalu and Nanjing in China and we have opened negotiations to other airline companies besides Air Asia which showed an early commitment to use the LTBB," he said.

The expansion and upgrading work on LTBB which started last April is expected to be completed in April next year and a major aim is to provide facilities to medical tourists.

The number of medical tourists who sought medical assistance in the specialist hospital in Melaka is estimated to have gone up to more than 67,000 people last year compared with 18,000 people in 2004 with most of them coming from Sumatra.

Work on LTBB is being carried out by the Uni-Integrated consortium which will construct a new terminal covering 7,000 sq metres and is expected to be equipped with various facilities to cater to both domestic and international flights.

Mohd Ali said the Batu Berendam airport will be able to handle a capacity of 1.5 million passengers a year, adding that some 500,000 visitors were expected in the first five years.

On the runway, which would have to be extended by 400 metres to 2,200 metres from the current 1,800 metres, he said the contractors involved in the expansion of LTBB had agreed to first bear the cost of RM40 million.

"I am giving the guarantee to the contractors that the state government will pay the RM40 million after a period of several years," he said.

He said that the application for the RM40 million has been also submitted to the Transport Ministry and is currently under consideration.

The extension of the runway to 2,200 metres is in line with international specifications for the safe and comfortable landing of an Airbus 320.

Meanwhile, Tony said Air Asia was ready to cooperate with the Melaka government. He also described Melaka as having great potential as a tourist destination especially in medical tourism.

"Coincidentally, Dec 8 is also the anniversary date of Air Asia and we are ready to take on a role in LTBB and hope to transport many tourists through the LTBB," he said.
