Penang airport out-of-date, says Lim
by Regina William
Email us your feedback at [email protected]


PENANG: The Penang state government has called on the transport ministry to compel Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) to hasten the upgrading works at the Penang International Airport.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the dilapidated condition of the airport, especially the washrooms, left much to be desired.

“The last time the airport was renovated was in 2001 at a cost of RM39.7 million. There is an urgent need to upgrade the (squatting) toilets which are not favoured, especially by Westerners and this does not augur well for an international airport.

“At least 60 toilets which are tourist friendly were supposed to have been built but have yet to be implemented,” Lim said in a statement yesterday.

He said Transport Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat, in reply to his written question, had said the upgrading works were in the process of being carried out. Lim said the tenders were supposed to have been called for last month.

“Being an international airport and the focal point of many tourists arriving into the country, this airport should have facilities of the same standards as the KLIA.

“We do not want the state’s image to be marred by filthy and out-of-date toilets, and we hope the ministry will carry out the necessary upgrading works as soon as possible,” he added.

Penang Airport needs renovation




GEORGE TOWN: Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng is urging the Transport Ministry, through Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd, to speed up renovation works at Penang International Airport.

Lim said the airport's deplorable state was compounded by washrooms in bad condition.

"This does not reflect the airport's status as an international airport. It is important for us to project a good image to visitors and tourists who come here.

"We do not want the state's image to be tarnished just because of this. We are worried that it will be a factor to a decrease in the number of local and foreign visitors coming here," he added.

Transport Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat had earlier stated that the last time renovation works were carried out at the airport was on March 1, 2001, costing RM39.7 million.

They covered expansion works and renovation of the building's terminal.

Penang airport next to go 'green'
Published: 2008/09/25
BusinessTimes

BOSTON: The Penang International Airport will be the second airport after the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang to be recognised as a "green" airport, says Malaysia Airports Holdings (MAHB) managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad.

The airport operator is currently taking steps to make all airports under its management environmentally-friendly.

"We will start with the international airports. It is going to be slightly harder (with the other domestic airports) as they are not designed to be environmentally-friendly," he said.

Bashir also said that KLIA has embarked on an initiative to be carbon-neutral. However, there is no target date set for the airport to be carbon-neutral.

"It will be based on what we can control because we cannot control aircraft emission," he added.

Earlier, Bashir presented a talk on "KLIA: Built to be Green" at a session on Changing for Climate Change.

He said one of the green initiatives that generates revenue to MAHB is the planting of oil palm plantation around KLIA to reduce noise pollution.

Meanwhile, Boeing managing director (environmental strategy) Billy Glover said the planemakeris focusing on technology, fuel and efficiency to reduce carbon emission by airplanes.

"Seventy-five per cent of our research and development has some environmental outcome associated with it," he said.

Lim shocked by RM1m toilets


GEORGE TOWN: Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng yesterday expressed shock that the cost of recent renovations to toilets at the Bayan Lepas International Airport came to RM1 million.

Lim, who held a meeting with airport officials in Komtar yesterday, said he was briefed that the renovation costs for the toilets amounted to RM250,000 each.

"I was told there are four toilets. They must indeed be very expensive toilets."

The airport's senior manager, Abdul Wahab Yusof, had earlier informed Lim that the high cost was due to vandalism.

"That is why the cost came to about RM250,000 each," he said.

Lim had, during the meeting, urged airport authorities to maintain cleanliness in the airport's toilets.

"I have received complaints that the toilets are very dirty.

"I am sure tourists arriving at the airport, and others who use the toilets, will be disgusted if they are dirty."

Penang deserves LCCT, says Lim
08-01-2009: by Regina William

GEORGE TOWN: Instead of having two low-cost carrier terminals (LCCT) almost right next to each other, there should be one built in Penang, besides expanding the existing Bayan Lepas International Airport, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said yesterday.

Lim was commenting on The Edge Financial Daily report that Sime Darby and AirAsia Bhd would collaborate to build a RM1.6 billion LCCT terminal in Labu, Negri Sembilan and Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) was also planning to set up a bigger LCCT to replace the existing one.

The Sime Darby-AirAsia joint proposal is for the development of an LCCT on a 2,800ha site owned by Sime Darby in Labu while MAHB has yet to finalise its plans for the expansion of the LCCT.

“Why can’t one of them come to Penang? Why the need for duplication and also conflict between MAHB and the two parties and so much money being poured in.

“I hope this confusion is sorted out and the respective parties will seriously consider building an LCCT in Penang and also expanding the present airport,” said Lim.

He said Penang had been left out despite it being the second highest profit centre for both MAHB and AirAsia.

“Penang is the logistics hub for the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER) and also the northern gateway for the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMTGT), and we need the LCCT and upgraded airport more than the need to build two LCCTs at the same location,” Lim said at a press conference.

He said the deplorable condition at the Penang airport should be seriously looked into by MAHB. “Even the Kota Bharu airport is in a much better condition,” he added.

Lim said he has officially communicated to Transport Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat and also the other players on the need for the airport expansion and also proposed an LCCT for Penang.

MAHB bina tandas RM1 juta


GEORGETOWN: Mungkin ramai yang tidak mengetahui kos pembinaan tandas di Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Bayan Lepas (LTABL) di sini yang mencecah RM250,000 seunit hampir menyampai harga sebuah rumah.

Namun, itulah kos ditanggung oleh Malaysia Airport Holdings Berhad (MAHB).

Pengurus Besar Kanan Perkhidmatan Teknikal MAHB, Datuk Abd Hamid Mohd Ali, berkata pihaknya membelanjakan RM1 juta untuk membina empat tandas tambahan kepada kemudahan sedia ada.



“Empat tandas itu digunakan sejak tiga minggu lalu untuk keselesaan penumpang,” katanya ketika mesyuarat dengan Ketua Menteri, Lim Guan Eng di sini, semalam.

Ini kali pertama pemberita dibenarkan mengikuti mesyuarat antara kerajaan negeri dengan pihak swasta bagi menunjukkan ketelusan kerajaan negeri.

Pada mesyuarat itu, Guan Eng membangkitkan masalah tandas di lapangan terbang yang kotor dan tidak setaraf status LTABL sebagai lapangan terbang antarabangsa.

Abd Hamid berkata, MAHB juga merancang membina empat tandas lagi.

Beliau juga menjelaskan pihaknya menghadapi masalah vandalisme mengakibatkan tandas rosak dan peralatan hilang.

Ketika mengulas kos yang tinggi untuk membina tandas itu, Abd Hamid berkata, ia sejajar kemudahan disediakan untuk penumpang di kebanyakan lapangan terbang.

AirAsia lobbies Penang for LCCT
By Marina EmmanuelPublished: 2009/01/15

LOW-cost carrier AirAsia Bhd is looking at Penang as a potential hub for a low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT).

It is learnt that group chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes made a case to the Penang government to build the terminal and the authorities are keen on his proposal.

Sources said the proposed LCCT in Penang would be independent from the budget air terminal that AirAsia wants to build in Labu, Negri Sembilan.

The proposed Penang terminal has been priced at RM120 million, excluding the cost of land, said sources.

At a presentation made on Tuesday to Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, elected representatives, industrialists along with selected government and quasi-government agencies in Penang, Fernandes did not indicate how much land was needed for the LCCT.

However, he proposed two sites which are aligned with the Penang International Airport at Bayan Lepas. The land, however, does not belong to the state government.

During the briefing at Lim’s office at Kompleks Tun Abdul Razak in George Town, Fernandes stressed the need for AirAsia to find sufficient parking bays at night for his aircraft and the fact that there would be a problem soon when the airline took delivery of additional planes.

“By offering point-to-point flights from various hubs, AirAsia will be able to solve its parking issue while Penang will benefit via the coverage of direct flights serviced by AirAsia,”
said a source.

Apart from Malaysia Airlines, which offers direct international
flights from Penang to selected destinations, other carriers using the airport include AirAsia, Cathay Pacific, Thai Airways
International, Lion Air, Singapore Airlines, China Southern Airlines, China Airlines, Firefly, Kartika Airlines and Sriwijaya
Air.

AirAsia began flying into Penang in 2002 and offers direct flights to cities in Thailand and Indonesia.

Fernandes declined to comment on the matter, while Lim could not be reached.

In 2007, the Penang government gave conditional approval to LC Airfields Sdn Bhd to set up a low-cost carrier terminal on the island.

Business Times had reported that the proposed LCCT would likely be sited north of the passenger terminal building in Bayan Lepas, and that AirAsia had asked for rights to be the licensed operator of the new terminal in order to keep costs low.

The Penang International Airport was expanded in 2001 to accommodate an annual capacity of five million passengers.

In reality, the airport can accommodate only slightly more than three million passengers a year because space meant for transit passengers has been leased to duty-free shops.
