Govt, airlines to talk in bid to increase tourists
Posted on June 29, 2011, Wednesday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2011/06...ease-tourists/

KUCHING: The Tourism and Heritage Ministry will continue to engage with existing and new airlines to bring more tourists into the state.

According to its minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg, the ministry is preparing some strategies to achieve the goal as accessibility and connectivity are important areas that must be pursued.

“Some of the strategies include improving connectivity from hub airports like Kuala Lumpur and Singapore by reducing transit time, global distribution system schedule display, marketing support to airlines, leveraging on the Liberal Aviation Policy to encourage airlines to fly to Sarawak, focusing on chartered operations during peak demand in selected markets like North Asia and Western Europe and collaborating with Malaysia Airport Berhad and other agencies to improve incentive programmes for aircraft landing and parking,” he said.

Abang Johari added that they were optimistic that positive trends in arrivals would continue this year, especially with improved connectivity, coupled with joint strategic marketing and promotional plans.

“Under the BIMP-Eaga air connectivity expansion initiative, I am pushing hard to get the federal government to allow MASWings to fly to selected destinations in Indonesia, Brunei and the Philippines.

“In addition, I am also engaging with other carriers on the possibility of opening up new routes from Europe, Australia and New Zealand,” he said.

Abang Johari pointed out that accessibility into the state had continued to improve this year, with several new destinations and carriers flying into Sarawak.

“The first four months of this year recorded a total visitor arrival of 1,158,994 visitors.

“Of these, 62.3 per cent were foreigners and 37.7 per cent were domestic visitors,” he said.

Last year, the state recorded 3,270,655 visitor arrivals, of which 58 per cent were international and 42 per cent were domestic visitors from Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah.

Tourist receipts earned last year based on Tourism Malaysia’s estimate was RM1.69 billion.

Firefly announces new flights to Langkawi from KLIA
Posted on July 14, 2011, Thursday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2011/07...awi-from-klia/

KUALA LUMPUR: Firefly will commence three daily flights between the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and Langkawi from December 1, 2011.

“Market research has shown there is good demand for this sector. Thus, we are utilising our biggest aircraft, the B737-800, which has a seating capacity of 189,” said Firefly’s Managing Director, Datuk Eddy Leong.

He said in a statement that the flights would depart from the KLIA’s main terminal.

“This is advantageous, especially for those passengers arriving at KLIA’s main terminal on Malaysia Airlines (MAS), and taking their own onward flights to Langkawi on Firefly,” he added. — Bernama

Firefly, Airport Coach to provide coach services
Published: 2011/08/05
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Firefly has forged a collaboration with Airport Coach Sdn Bhd to provide coach services for its passengers between the KL Sentral Bus Station and KL International Airport (KLIA) main terminal building.

Through this collaboration, Firefly passengers can purchase Airport Coach bus tickets when they make their flight bookings from Firefly’s website at
www.fireflyz.com.my.

"These online purchases will be shown on the same flight itinerary which can then be printed out or saved in a mobile device and later shown to the Airport

Coach personnel as proof of purchase before boarding the bus," said Firefly's head of marketing and communications, Angelina C. Fernandez, in a statement today.

She also said: "Due to this collaboration, Airport Coach has also agreed to extend its bus service operations on this KL Sentral – KLIA route to 24 hours, every day.

"This is good news for passengers as it means services are always available, no matter how early or how late our flight arrives/departs from KLIA."

The one-way fare for the express bus service between the KLIA main terminal building and KL Sentral is RM10 for adults and RM6 for children aged six and below. -- Bernama

MAS and AirAsia nearing deal in share swap
Posted on August 7, 2011, Sunday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2011/08...in-share-swap/

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Airline System (MAS) and AirAsia are poised to form a working partnership, the Edge financial newspaper reported yesterday quoting unnamed sources.

The newspaper said that state strategic investment fund Khazanah Nasional would enter as a common shareholder, buying up stakes in both MAS and AirAsia’s major shareholder, Tune Air, to facilitate the deal.

“Working together will only be realistic if there is a share swap,” a source was quoted by the paper as saying.

The deal will see Tan Sri Tony Fernandes help stop the ailing flag carrier from plunging any further into the red, industry source said.

The share swap would see Tony getting a 20 per cent stake in the national carrier. Tune Air, owned by Fernandes and Datuk Kamarudin Meranun, is expected to benefit most from the share swap with MAS as it holds 26.28 per cent of the budget carrier as of July 6 this year.

The budget carrier’s market capitalisation of RM11 billion (S$4.46 billion) yesterday is now two times more than MAS which stands at RM5.3 billion, a decade after Tune Air took over the two-plane operation. – Reuters/Agencies

MAS, AirAsia and AirAsia X to leverage on core strengths
2011/08/09
http://www.nst.com.my/nst/articles/M...ngths/Article/

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines (MAS), AirAsia Bhd and Airasia X Sdn Bhd today entered into a comprehensive collaboration framework to leverage on their respective core strengths.

To strengthen the collaboration and to establish a mutuality of interest, MAS and AirAsia are issuing free warrants to each other's shareholders.

Independent advisers will be appointed to advise minority shareholders on the proposed warrants.

Tune Air Sdn Bhd and Khazanah Nasional Bhd, the major shareholders of AirAsia and MAS, respectively, have agreed to acquire from each others existing shares, said Khazanah and Tune Air in a joint statement.

As a result, Tune Air will hold 20.5 per cent shares in MAS and Khazanah will hold 10 per cent shares in AirAsia.

Khazanah will continue to be the single largest and major shareholder of MAS.

The agreement will come into effect immediately upon its execution and shall remain in effect for five years from the date of the collaboration agreement, with an option for a further five-year renewal. -- BERNAMA

MAS-AirAsia deal: Back to the future
Published: 2011/08/10
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...ent-2/Article/



Let'S first get the facts correct in the Malaysia Airlines (MAS)-AirAsia-AirAsia X deal just inked yesterday.

It is not a merger as widely reported although a stock or share swap normally occurs as part of a merger or acquisition when shareholders' ownership of the target company's shares is exchanged for shares of the acquiring company.

There is no reasonable rationale for a merger since all three airlines operate totally different business models. It is a swap to pave the way for what some analysts has described as a "partnership". In fact, yesterday's signing ceremony was termed as "comprehensive collaboration framework".

Through the share swap, AirAsia group chief executive Tan Sri Tony Fernandes is not the single largest shareholder in MAS.

The government's investment arm Khazanah Nasional Bhd, with a 49 per cent stake in MAS after the share swap and holding a special shareholder position of the government, will continue to maintain its position as the single largest shareholder in the national carrier. The aviation sector is a strategic sector to the economy and MAS will remain as a core holding in Khazanah's portfolio.

Also, Khazanah's commitment to AirAsia is considered "firmer" given its stake is via the unlisted Tune Air, hence illiquid.

As Tune Air's stake is via MAS, it would seem to have the option to sell into the open market if it is not in alignment with the views of MAS' board majority.

In addition, Khazanah also proposes to acquire some AirAsia X's shares on terms and at a price to be mutually agreed later.

Negotiations on a partnership had been ongoing since the days of Datuk Seri Idris Jala as MAS managing director. Khazanah's managing director Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar confirmed negotiations concluded at 2.05am on Sunday morning.

Shukor Yusof of international rating agency Standard & Poor's, who has been tracking both airlines for years, sees it as the "financial reengineering of MAS" that is "the hallmark of the Binafikir boys", who now run Khazanah.

Azman is one of the co-founders of Binafikir. The other is Mohammed Rashdan Mohd Yusof, who is Khazanah's executive director (investments) and recently named to the board of MAS. He has been named as MAS executive director.

"They (Azman and Rashdan) crafted the Widespread Assets Unbundling (WAU) for MAS in 2002 - essentially moving the debts to another government agency Penerbangan Malaysia Bhd - and it would seem they are having another go at realigning MAS' financial profile," he said.

Shukor is not far from wrong really. The man that brought in the Binafikir boys into MAS back then has returned as chairman of the national carrier. Tan Sri Md Nor Yusof had served as MAS managing director before.

At the press conference, Azman, Md Nor and Fernandes talked about growth and the immediate synergistic opportunities which can be realised without significant effect on any party's operations. This includes aircraft purchasing, engineering, ground support services, cargo services, catering and training.

The collaborative agreement signed between the three airlines will be for five years, with the option for a further five-year renewal.

Md Nor said the joint collaboration will help MAS focus on its strengths in its core markets . It will be able to offer services in engineering and other areas to both AirAsia and AirAsia X.

Fernandes said AirAsia and AirAsia X see growth opportunities in new routes and destinations.

Azman called it "historic colla-boration" which is both synergistic and pragmatic. It will sharpen the focus of core competencies, deliver better products and choices for customers and ultimately create greater value for all the stakeholders.

Through the collaborative framework, MAS and its subsidiary Firefly, AirAsia and AirAsia X will focus on business segments in which they are capable of developing the most value.

MAS and Firefly will continue to operate the short-, medium- and long-haul full service segment while AirAsia and AirAsia X will provide the short-, medium- and long-haul budget services.

Analysts said with the Asean free skies policy coming into effect in 2015, this will see increased competition with unlimited flight frequencies between Asean's 10 major cities. "Notably, more regional airlines are now aggressively growing and starting their own low-cost carriers, which are turning out to be effective vehicles to garner regional traffic to feed into legacy, premium airlines' long-haul routes.

"Strengthening and coordinating the two local airlines are necessary to stave off incoming competition, particularly considering that the KL International Airport is stuck between Singapore as a major business hub and Thailand as a major tourism hub," he said.

Despite the owners saying that the playground is big for four airlines, it may be a tad too many for a small country like Malaysia.

Some see the share swap as a prelude to some kind of arrangement that may see, for example, route rationalisation which could see AirAsia taking most of the domestic and short-haul routes, a committed traffic to feed into MAS' long-haul network, usage of MAS maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities and MAS employees' unions.

As Azman rightly puts it, this will not be the end-all transformation for the airline industry but it is the beginning.

But for now, the government can breathe a sigh of relief as it will have less headache after having to referee the consistent discord between MAS and AirAsia all this while.

MASkargo banking on intra-Asian trade to cushion off crisis impact
By DAVID TAN Photos by CHARLES MARIASOOSAY
Monday August 15, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...1728&sec=North

MALAYSIAN Airlines Cargo Sdn Bhd (MASkargo) is bracing for a drop in business due to the economic crisis in US and Europe.

The indications are there since its cargo freighter business, which uses China as a hub to serve the global market, has dropped significantly in the first half of this year.

MASkargo senior vice president Mohd Yunus Idris (pic) said the global market was likely to worsen in months to come due to the economic crisis in US and Europe.

“However, the intra-Asian trade will cushion the impact of the crisis on MASkargo. This is because MASkargo can utilise its passenger aircraft on top of the cargo freighters to enhance its business,” he said.

Yunus said this during an annual breaking of fast dinner, organised by MASkargo for its agents in Penang.

Starting Sept 16 this year, Yunus said that the first new air cargo freighter, A330-200 freighter with a 60 MT capacity, would be deployed to service the Kansai and Narita routes in Japan.

“The freighter will fly twice weekly to Kansai and twice weekly to Narita from Kuala Lumpur,” he said.

MASkargo will get three more A330-200 freighters in November, January 2012, and April 2012.

“The second freighter to arrive will be used for servicing the Taipei, Hong Kong, and Indonesia markets, while the third and fourth freighters will be used for the India and Middle East routes respectively,” he said.

Yunus said MASkargo was currently enhancing its cargo handling terminal in Kuala Lumpur.

“The expansion exercise, which costs about RM80mil, will be completed in three years,” Yunus said.

'KLIA not affected by US, Europe crises'
Published: 2011/08/23
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

The KL International Airport (KLIA), so far, hasn't been affected by the economic crisis in the US and Europe, says the airport's operator, Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd.

MAHB senior general manager for operations, Datuk Azmi Murad said for the January to July period, the number of passengers using KLIA had increased by 13.3 per cent to 21.836 million passengers compared with the same period last year.

"Passengers using the main terminal increased by 9.3 per cent to 11.759 million while passengers using the low cost carrier terminal increased 18.4 per cent to 10.077 million compared with the January-July period last year," he said after distributing dates and mineral water to passengers at the KLIA today.

He said the higher number of passengers from the Middle East, who are having their holidays from July to September, has also helped to increase the passenger volume during the period. --Bernama

SIBU: The Sibu Airport extension project, which commenced a month ago, is expected to be completed ahead of schedule.

According to project director from KLIA Consultancy Services Sdn Bhd, Dr Shafie Karimin, the project is expected to be completed two months earlier than projected.

“The project is two per cent completed and it is progressing very smoothly according to schedule,” he enthused.

Giving a briefing on the project at the airport yesterday, he said it consisted of two packages.

The first package involves expansion of terminal building, utility centre building and other related works.

The new 15,240 sq metre terminal building would be fully air-conditioned and consists of 18 check-in counters compared to current eight, four aerobridges and two luggage reclaim belts.

The package also includes instalment of electrical and mechanical services, computerized building management system and work on information technologies and communications.

Strand to spearhead RM177m investments
By Sharen Kaur Published: 2011/09/09

KUALA LUMPUR: Strand Aerospace Malaysia Sdn Bhd (SAM), an Airbus-approved engineering services company, will spearhead investments of RM177 million to get aerospace suppliers to set up base here.

The company will be recruiting 6,000 engineers in Malaysia by 2020, to serve the global aerospace industry.

It will also develop a new software to train the engineers at its training centre in Kota Damansara in Selangor, said its chief operating officer Naguib Mohd Nor.

SAM, which has been in operation since October 2006, currently employs 40 engineers. By 2013, it plans to have 350 engineers.


Naguib said the growth in the number of engineers from 2013 to 2020 will be driven by foreign direct investment, capitalising on the readily available Malaysian talent pool.

The RM177 million investment is one of eight new initiatives announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak yesterday, under the Economic Transformation Programme progress update. The project is expected to contribute RM3.5 billion to gross national income by 2010.

SAM is required to develop and position Malaysia as a hub for high-value engineering services, for the global aerospace market.

The company's engineers specialise in aircraft primary structures analysis and design, and they have worked on a number of fixed wing and rotary wings for the entire Airbus fleet, as well as military aircraft such as Tornado, Harrier and Nimrod.

According to Naguib, the global engineering services industry, worth between US$200 million and US$250 million (RM598 million and RM747.5 million) currently, is expected to hit US$1 trillion (RM2.99 trillion) by 2020.

"The local industry is worth RM20 million per annum and has big potential to grow. Together with Matrade, Mida and Miti, we will be selling our talent globally," he said after the announcement.

Naguib said the company will promote new talents to its existing customers, namely Airbus UK, Airbus North America, Messier-Dowty, BAe Systems, WS Atkins Aerospace, Aerosud, GKN Aerospace, GED Sitec, Assystems and CTRM.

"We expect our collaboration with Malaysian academia to yield more industry-ready graduates who will fuel the growth of this industry," he said.

SAM is founded by its chairman, Datuk Dr Ahmed Tasir and Naguib, who jointly own 51 per cent of the company. The rest is held by British aerospace expert Anthony Bedborough, the company's chief executive officer.
