30 new Tune hotels next year and they'll all be 'green'
By Sharen KaurPublished: 2011/09/10
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1Xd4tcJiI



KUALA LUMPUR: Tune Hotels, a budget hotel company, aims to open 30 new hotels next year for between US$180 million and US$240 million (RM540 million-RM720 million) and all will be eco-friendly certified.

Tune Hotels, which is part of the Tune Group, is aiming for 100 hotels in its global portfolio by 2015. It now has 13 hotels in Malaysia, Indonesia and the UK.

Tune Group is the private investment entity of Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, founder and group CEO of low-cost airline AirAsia Bhd.

Tune Hotels chief executive officer Mark Lankester said it will set up more hotels in Malaysia, Indonesia, the UK, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia and India.

"We are also targeting New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Latin America and Europe, which are fantastic markets," he said yesterday after signing a memorandum of understanding with General Electric (GE) at the Second International Greentech and Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia 2011.

GE will help Tune Hotels review, plan and design properties by contributing its expertise in the areas of low-cost operational modeling, sustainable development, cost-saving infrastructure, energy efficiency and green technology.

Tune Hotels wants to achieve eco-building certifications, like Malaysia's Green Building Index, the Singapore BCA Green Mark and the US Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system.

Lankester said Tune Hotels will invest RM2 million to RM3 million for each hotel to be certified green.

GE signed a separate MOU yesterday with Green Technology Corp to collaborate on public awareness campaigns to promote green technology and sustainability initiatives.

"We will collaborate in several areas including low carbon city framework and building certification," said GE Malaysia marketing development director Azli Mohamed.

MAS, Air Asia in QPR jersey deal
Updated: Monday September 12, 2011 MYT 8:10:05 PM
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...527&sec=nation

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and Air Asia have signed a jersey deal with Barclay's Premier League recently-promoted Queens Park Rangers.

Both signed a two-year sponsorship on Monday allowing the MAS logo to adorn the QPR jersey on home games while the AirAsia logo will be used on the team's away games, according to the QPR website.

The new blue-striped jersey with the MAS logo will be worn for the first time in QPR's home game against Newscatle at Loftus Road later on Monday.

“This sponsorship is the first major initiative of our new brand and marketing strategy, that would see important advertising money spent on boosting our top line.

"This is a key component in our drive to regain global market share, profitability and pride for the people of MAS,” said MAS executive director Mohammed Rashdan Yusof.

Air Asia boss Tan Sri Tony Fernandes recently acquired a 66 per cent stake in QPR. Fernandes also sits on the MAS board following a MAS-Air Asia share swap on Aug 9.

Malaysia among top freighter aircraft markets in Asia Pacific
From P. SelvaraniPublished: 2011/09/16Share
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1Y6cGclI9

TOULOUSE (France): Demand for freighter aircraft in Asia Pacific is expected to triple within the next 20 years, with Malaysia taking a key position in the air cargo industry in Southeast Asia.

The growth is in tandem with the projected expansion in world airfreight.

The Global Market Forecast projects the demand for freighter aircraft fleet to increase to 3,346 in 2029 from the existing 1,553 currently in operation.

The bulk of the fleet will be in the Asia-Pacific region, which will need 1,056 freighter aircraft to meet the industry's needs by then. Malaysia has been identified as among the top countries in the region, along with Singapore, Thailand and India, which will see promising growth in air cargo movement, partially as a result of higher labour costs in China.

"Although the Chinese market is still very promising in terms of freighter traffic, what we can assume in the future is the impact of the labour rate that has a tendency to segment the market," Airbus A330 marketing manager Cyrille Picard told the Malaysian media at the Airbus headquarters here.

He said as labour rates in major Chinese cities have increased, more companies are now shifting inland while others have moved their operations out of China into Southeast Asian countries, such as Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand, where labour costs are relatively cheaper.

Picard said this fragmentation of the market would create a demand for mid-sized aircraft, such as the A330, as it gives the airlines the flexibility of flying regional or long haul.

About half of the 1,400 mid-sized freight aircraft, which are expected to be in service by 2029, are likely to be the A330, half of that will be concentrated in the Asia Pacific region.

He added that the segmented air cargo market bodes well for air freighters like MASkargo, which will operate a fleet of mid-sized freight aircraft to meet the growing demand.

MASkargo took the delivery of the first of four A330-200F aircraft with a 70-tonne payload capacity yesterday.

MIRI: Miri Airport, as the northern gateway to Sarawak and one of the main and most important tourist attractions in the state, should be upgraded to enable it to receive direct international flights for the convenience of international travellers.

In making the suggestion, PAS Miri chief cum state deputy commissioner III Jofri Jaraee said this was because Miri is Sarawak’s second largest city with a population of about 300,000 and famous for its natural assets and tourist attractions.

“Miri is surrounded by four world-class national parks such as Mount Mulu, Niah Caves, Bukit Lambir Loagan Bunut and Gunung Mulu National Park which are regularly visited by foreign and local tourists,” he said.

He cited some of these attractions as Unesco World Heritage sites that encompass incredible caves and rock formations in a mountainous equatorial rainforest setting.

In addition, he said Miri is well-known for traditional handicrafts and souvenir shops.

Sibu Airport Extension & Upgrade (SBW)
Sarawak Bumi Kenyalang



Upgrading works on Sibu Airport ahead of schedule
by Jane Moh. Posted on November 3, 2011, Thursday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2011/11...d-of-schedule/

SIBU: Works to expand and upgrade Sibu Airport are progressing well and completion can be expected in nine months time.

Second Finance Minister Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh told a press conference yesterday that the works were actually slightly ahead of schedule.

“Package one is 1.30 per cent ahead of schedule and package two is 2 per cent ahead of schedule,” he revealed.

He added: “The new check-in counters would be opened by Dec 19.”

The project procurement method was implemented through Pre-Qualified Open Tender and divided into two separate design-and-build contract packages.

Package one involved the extension of passenger terminal building, central utility building and other associated works.

The second package involved airside and landside works, DCA building and other associated works.

Wong, who is also the Minister of Local Government and Community Development, said the airport would serve not only Sibu, but the entire central region.

“When fully completed, the airport will be bigger than the one in Miri, though smaller than Kuching International Airport.

“It has all the features of an international airport. A domestic departure lounge and the international departure lounge will be available,” he enthused.

He said once the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) was fully implemented, Sibu Airport would become a very busy place.

“People have to come to Sibu first before they could go elsewhere. So, this is the gateway to the central region,” he said.

Penang International Airport expansion and upgrade (PEN)

A MULTI-STOREY car park and a hotel block will soon be built within the Penang International Airport ground, said state Public Works, Utilities and Transportation Committee chairman Lim Hock Seng.

The car park, which will have 1,218 lots, and the hotel will be tendered to interested concessionaires via open tender.

“Both structures will not exceed 30m as per the Civil Aviation Department’s (DCA) Obstruction Clearance Limitation,” he told reporters after inspecting the work progress at the airport in Bayan Lepas yesterday.

Lim said airport users could now enjoy smoother pick-up and drop-off of passengers with the opening of the arrival and departure curb side and ramps on Friday, adding that lanes had been built according to vehicle types.

“The opening of the new drop-off and pick-up points has visibly eased traffic flow but the absence of signs has caused motorists to park haphazardly outside the terminal building.

“Signs and road-line works will be carried out at night when there are fewer cars to ensure the public abide by the system and not take advantage of the situation by simply parking anywhere they like,” he said.

The arrival and departure ramps had been closed to visitors since April this year due to the upgrading and repair works.

Throughout that period, passengers and visitors had to endure numerous inconveniences even though nearly RM1.6 million had been spent on temporary diversion measures following complaints.

Airport senior manager Mohd Ariff Jaafar, who was also present, expressed confidence that they would be able to meet the completion date of June 2012.

Earlier, Lim and Batu Maung assemblyman Abdul Malik Abul Kassim also visited the completed RM6.1mil road rehabilitation project along the coastal road on the Lim Chong Eu Expressway and Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah in Penang.

They thanked motorists for their understanding and patience during the four-month road closure and diversion.

Abdul Malik said road users, including him, would get to enjoy a smoother and a safer driving experience along these roads.

MASwings to launch the first phase of its BIMP-EAGA operations
Published: Monday November 21, 2011 MYT 11:13:00 AM
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...4&sec=business

KOTA KINABALU: MASwings, the airline servicing Sabah and Sarawak, expects to launch the first phase of its BIMP-EAGA operations into Brunei and Kalimantan, Indonesia, by early near year.

Chief executive officer, Datuk Capt Mohd Nawawi Awang said the foray into international destinations, would be another milestone in the airlines' history.

It will, he added, pave the way for many more people to travel into Sabah and Sarawak while further intensifying tourist arrivals and business opportunities.

"Hopefully, in the next few days, we will be getting the long awaited approval to operate into the BIMP-EAGA.

"This will be a new dawn for MASwings, and we hope to launch the first phase of our BIMP-EAGA operations by early next year," Mohd Nawawi said at MASwings 4th Anniversary Dinner, here last night.

State Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment Datuk Masidi Manjun attended the function, on behalf of Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.

The BIMP-EAGA was launched in 1994 as a cooperation initiative by Brunei. Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, all of which are member-countries of ASEAN.

In a joint statement after the conclusion of the BIMP-EAGA Ministerial Meeting in Cagayan De Oro, in the Philippines recently, all four countries agreed to discuss ways to improve air connectivity in the region.

This included the initiative to expand the Memorandum of Understanding on the expansion of air linkages with possible additional points outside of the BIMP-EAGA for co-terminalisation operation.

On MASwings' performance so far, Mohd Nawawi said it had recorded many remarkable achievements, particularly in terms of passenger numbers.

He said there was a marked increase in passengers from 45,000 per month in 2007 to 130,000 per month this year, representing a three-fold increase or equivalent to 300 per cent.

"Our current on-time performance (OTP) is 94 per cent, the best on-time performance ever recorded, higher than any other airline that operates in the country.

"MAswings started with only 450 flights weekly in 2007 and now its operations has increased by more than 110 per cent with 940 flights ," Mohd Nawawi added. - BERNAMA

SEPANG, 20 October - With the successful certifications of five international airports in Malaysia, Malaysia Airports is aiming to get the domestic airports under its management to obtain the Safety Management System (SMS) certifications soon.

Y.Bhg. Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad, Managing Director of Malaysia Airports said: "We are very pleased to have all five international airport to be SMS certified, making these airports amongst the earliest to achieve the certifications, and the first in the Asia region. Next in the pipeline is to have another five domestic airports to be SMS certified - Bintulu, Tawau, Miri, Sibu and Terengganu in the year 2010."

Tan Sri Bashir added: "The SMS certification is a testimony of our initiatives to ensure the highest level of safety at our airports and to fully comply with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Safety Management Program."

KL International Airport (KLIA), Penang International Airport, Langkawi International Airport, Kota Kinabalu International Airport and Kuching International Airport had to undergo an audit by the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) to achieve this certification. Apart from the audit, the airports have also completed specific documentation for submission to DCA.

The SMS indicates conformance to all safety requirements and achieving continuous improvement in safety performance. These include the essential features of safety such as policy, strategy and planning and implementation as well as promotion, records, staff training and competency.

It also certifies that the airports have successfully implemented the 'Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Risk Control (HIRARC) while the listing of Acceptable Level of Safety (ALOS) has conformed to the requirements of the DCA.

Y.Bhg. Dato' Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, DCA's Director General, in his speech said: "With the certification, we can demonstrate to the world that our airports placed importance to safety, and I hope the airports will continue to maintain the highest level of safety measures. These airports will continue to undergo Annual Scheduled Inspections to ensure that the requirements of the certification are continuously met."

Malaysia Airports are always committed to ensure good safety management. This is shown through the establishment of a safety office, joint efforts with risk management and the business continuity programme, blending and complying with Occupational Health and Safety requirement.

PUTRAJAYA: Passenger traffic at the country's airports last year rose 10.63 per cent to 65.343 million passengers, from 59.065 million passengers in 2010.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the increase was the second consecutive double-digit annual growth, with the 2010 figure 12 per cent over that of 2009.

He said the country's security and stability contributed to last year's good performance, which surpassed the ministry's target of 62 million passengers.

The growth was also encouraging as it came amid economic uncertainty in Europe and the United States in the last few years, he said.

"It shows the country was growing quite well and on the right track," he told reporters at his office here today.

Kong said the ministry targets passenger traffic to grow only five per cent this year amid the global economic uncertainty, especially in Europe and America.

He said last year, international passenger traffic grew 10.03 per cent to 30.89 million passengers, from 28.007 million in 2010, while domestic passenger traffic rose 10.9 per cent to 34.454 million, from 31.056 million.

Last year the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) handled 37.700 million passengers, followed by the airports of Kota Kinabalu (5.809 million), Penang (4.6 million) and Kuching (4.287 million).

Other airports handling over a million passengers were Miri (1.857 million), Langkawi (1.504 million), Johor Baharu (1.338 million), Sibu (1.133 million), Kota Baharu (1.132 million) and Subang (1.320 million).


On PJ Utara MP Tony Pua's allegation in a news portal today that the construction cost of the West Coast Expressway had escalated from its original estimate of RM3.015 billion, Kong said the project was planned a long time ago.

Kong said the expressway was long overdue and it was very important to implement the project immediately in order to stimulate the economies of the states involved, adding if it was not implemented now, the cost would escalate further in future. - Bernama

MAHB bags 'Exceptional Service to Aviation' award
Published: 2012/04/25
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...4MAHB/Article/



KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has won the "Exceptional Service to Aviation" award from the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Aviation Committee.

The award, presented last Friday at the PATA Board meeting here, recognises Bursa Malaysia-listed MAHB who runs its airports as a profitable, self-sustaining business.

"Airports must be profitable, continuously provide extra capacity for expansion, work closely with airlines and always reinvest in development," MAHB managing director Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad said in a statement released yesterday.

Bashir accepted the award from PATA chief executive officer (CEO) Martin Craigs and PATA Aviation Committee chairman Peter Hoslin.


The committee also recognised MAHB's contribution in facilitating the phenomenal growth of low-cost travel, with the company currently building a new dedicated terminal in Kuala Lumpur, called KLIA2, to cater to the rapid expansion of low-cost carriers (LCCs).

"Malaysia Airports is a remarkable success story. They are profitable. They keep their costs to airlines down," Hoslin said in the statement.

He added that MAHB also pays good dividends to investors. "And their triple-A finance rating means they can expand services and facilities for airlines. The PATA award recognises this exceptional achievement."

According to MAHB, since its privatisation in 1992 and becoming a publicly listed company in 1999, the group has seen increasing profits, although its airport charges are comparatively the lowest. The privately run airport operator was also the first in the world to be listed on the stock market.

Meanwhile, KL International Airport (KLIA) has won the Best Airport Staff Asia Award in the Skytrax 2012 World Airport Awards. KLIA beat tough competitions from some of the world's best airports.

Incheon International Airport achieved second place, Singapore Changi Airport was in third, while Hong Kong International Airport and Central Japan International Airport were in the fourth and fifth spots, respectively.

The award was presented to KLIA last Thursday by Skytrax CEO Edward Plaisted, in conjunction with The Passenger Terminal Expo held in Vienna between April 18 and 20.

KLIA improved its place in the world's top 10 airports with an 8th place, one spot better than last year.

Its general manager in charge of KLIA, Mohammad Suhaimi Abdul Mubin, said the award is a testimonial of KLIA workforce meeting the highest service level standards.

MAHB launches shopping spree campaign
Published: 2012/07/19
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd today launched its "Indulge Till You Fly" (ITYF) shopping spree campaign where it is offering travellers the opportunity to spend at the airport and win a grand prize of RM1 million worth shopping spree under the campaign.

This year's grand prize is the biggest reward yet for a traveller to and from Malaysia, said Faizah Khairuddin, MAHB's Senior General Manager, Commercial Services, at the launch here today.

Under the campaign, which will be held till Feb 28, 2013, travellers need to spend a minimum of RM250 at any participating food and beverage or retail outlets at five MAHB-operated international airports in Malaysia to participate.

The airports are KL International Airport, Penang International Airport, Langkawi International Airport, Kuching International Airport and Kota Kinabalu International Airport.

Faizah said with RM250 spent, participants will be also automatically entitled to instant cash shopping vouchers worth RM10. Additionally, they will stand a chance to win one of the seven monthly indulger prizes of RM10,000 each in shopping vouchers.

Travellers who use their MasterCard branded cards will receive double cash vouchers and contest entry forms, increasing their chances to be the millionaire shopper, while also being in the running to win one of the seven monthly indulger prizes.

Faizah said, MAHB has also adopted a more efficient and hassle-free way for traveller to participate in the campaign.

"We have placed self-service campaign e-kiosk throughout our international airports where eligible participants can use."

With a growth in the number of passengers, the e-kiosk will make it more convenient for participants while also increasing the participation level, she said.

Forty units of the self-service kiosks will be placed at the five airports around the country, she added. -- Bernama
