Malaysia Airports Holdings sees 3.2% growth in January

 

Malaysian airports registered 6.8million passengers in January 2016, an increase of 3.2% year-onyear

over January 2015. International and domestic sectors recorded 3.5million and 3.3million
passengers, an increase of 6.0% and 0.3% respectively. Overall aircraft movements decreased by
2.2% with a reduction of international and domestic movements by 1.8% and 2.5% respectively
over January 2015.
KLIA passenger movements increased by 4.4% in January 2016. KLIA Main Terminal traffic
decreased by 13.0% while klia2 grew by 21.4%. The last twelve months passenger traffic for KLIA
Main terminal recorded 22.4million passengers, a decline of 9.2%, while klia2 recorded 26.7million,
an increase of 11.2% over the same corresponding period. Overall aircraft movements at KLIA in
January 2016 decreased by 1.6% over the same month last year. International and domestic
aircraft movements at KLIA registered a reduction of 1.6% and 0.3% respectively. KLIA Main’s
negative growth was mainly contributed by the absence and high growth of Malindo/Lion Air and
Jetstar Asia which have moved to klia2 apart from frequencies cut by Malaysia Airlines.

The A380 continues to be intertwined with London Heathrow. Malaysia Airlines has cut both its European and A380 scheduled network to just twice daily Heathrow A380 services. Emirates will introduce a sixth daily A380 flight to Heathrow and British Airways is evaluating taking second-hand A380s. London Heathrow is not the busiest A380 airport: that title goes to Dubai, home of Emirates, which operates more A380s than any other airline.

Thank you for that Kuhan. Finally we have the complete 2015 Top 30 ranking. That wiki page was stuck with data until March 2015 for almost 1 year. This is due to the fact that ACI is no longer publishing the statistics as it used to.

 

Wth stagnant growth predicted for KUL in next few years, it is an uphill task to maintain the sub Top 23 position (from Top 20 in 2014). A lot of other airports are fast catching up.

 

Big blow to Heathrow. I think this is their worst ranking ever. That's what you get for delaying the 3rd runway.

KUL's growth will depend heavily on Malindo now. Of course MH still important, but Malindo is on the verge of exponential growth.

 

Remember that more narrow-bodies = more frequencies = more passengers.

 

That said, hope Malindo start to base some A330's at KUL in the near future.

No worries. I wondered why there was a delay in the report for 2015 but I guess there are some shocking statistics hence the delay.

it is amazing to see how much Penang and Subang airport has grown over the years. No wonder Penang Government is screaming for a new airport.

 

Quite surprising to see decline in KK. Was this due to MAS's pulling out?

KUALA LUMPUR May 9 (Bernama) -- Low-cost carrier, AirAsia Bhd, has recorded a higher load factor of 86 per cent in the first quarter of this year, up 9.0 percentage points against the same period last year.
"The number of passengers carried increased 17 per cent, year-on-year, (YoY) to 13.9 million, well ahead of the 6.0 per cent increase in capacity," it said in a statement Monday.
At the end of the quarter under review, AirAsia said the group's total fleet size stood at 171 aircraft, including one aircraft that was delivered to AirAsia Japan which has not commenced operations.
For Malaysia, AirAsia posted a load factor of 85 per cent in the first quarter, up 10 percentage points year-on-year.
"Demand exceeded capacity with a 17 per cent increase in the number of passengers carried at 6.48 million and 3.0 per cent year-on-year increase in capacity," it added.

Preliminary Operating Statistics

For the 1st Quarter of the Financial Year Ended 2016


AirAsia X Berhad (“AAX” or “the Company”), the long-haul, low-cost airline affiliate of AirAsia Group is pleased to announce its operating statistics for the 1st quarter of 2016 (“1Q16”).


The Company’s continued turnaround initiatives have encouraged progressive improvement in its operating performance, resulting in higher passenger load factor (“PLF”) which grew 8 percentage points (“ppts”) to 82% in 1Q16 from 74% in the same period last year. In terms of passenger traffic, revenue passenger kilometres (“RPK”) increased 19% year-on-year (“y-o-y”) mainly due to strong traffic demand in China and Australia markets, surpassing the 7% y-o-y growth in capacity (“available seat kilometres or ASK”) for the quarter. The capacity injected was to cater to the rising demand in high-traffic markets and expansion to high-yield routes such as New Delhi and Auckland, which commenced in February and March 2016 respectively.


Thai AirAsia X (“TAAX”) recorded an improved PLF of 88% in 1Q16, on the back of high passenger traffic during peak season, while overall operating performance for Indonesia AirAsia X (“IAAX”) has remained consistent.


On fleet movements, Malaysia AirAsia X (“MAAX”) and TAAX both took delivery of one A330 each in 1Q16, bringing their fleet size to a total of 21 and 6 respectively. IAAX fleet size remained at 2 A330s, bringing AirAsia X Group (“the Group”) total fleet to 29.


Moving forward in 2016, the Group remains cautiously optimistic as the challenging operating environment is expected to persist with currency volatility, regulatory uncertainty and other external factors beyond the Group’s control. The Group remains prudent in its expansion plan and continues to explore strategic initiatives to ensure sustainable growth.

Full effect of MAS capacity reductions will be felt at KUL this year. Unfortunately, now up to foreign carriers to sweep up the demand. Hoping ME3 (+TK) continue expansion.

SIA Group JUNE 2016 OPERATING RESULTS




In June 2016, SIA Group passenger airlines' passenger carriage (measured in revenue passenger kilometres) increased by 0.4% compared to last year, trailing growth in capacity (measured in available seat kilometres) of 2.7%. Passenger load factor (PLF) fell 1.9 percentage points to 78.1%.



Singapore Airlines' PLF fell 2.1 percentage points to 77.8%. Passenger carriage dropped 3.8% compared to last year, against a 1.3% decrease in capacity. Apart from East Asia, PLF declined for all other regions due to weaker passenger demand. The competitive landscape continues to be challenging and promotional activities will continue in relevant markets.


SilkAir’s systemwide passenger carriage decreased by 0.1% year-on-year compared to a 6.1% increase in capacity. Consequently, PLF decreased by 4.2 percentage points to 68.1%. The decline in passenger carriage for the East Asia and Pacific region led to a 3.6 percentage point decrease in PLF. Passenger carriage for the West Asia region increased but did not match capacity growth, resulting in a 6.8 percentage point decrease in PLF.


Scoot's systemwide passenger carriage grew 59.5% year-on-year. Capacity increased by 57.7% year-onyear as the number of aircraft increased from six B777s to eleven B787s. Consequently, PLF increased by 0.9 percentage points to 83.5%.


Tigerair's systemwide passenger carriage declined by 3.9% year-on-year as compared to a 2.2% decrease in capacity. Consequently, PLF decreased by 1.5 percentage points to 83.5%. During the month, Tigerair further expanded its footprint in China with the launch of new services to Zhengzhou, bringing its network in Mainland China to 10 cities.


Overall cargo load factor (CLF) was 0.8 percentage points higher as cargo traffic (measured in freight-tonneskilometres) grew 5.9% against capacity growth of 4.5%. East Asia and Americas regions recorded improvements in load factor with demand outpacing capacity changes.

Very solid performance by AirAsia Group. However, we shall see if the increase in load factor translates to yield, particularly in Philippines AirAsia and Indonesia AirAsia. These two entities have been dragging the Group P/L in recent years. Not forgetting AirAsia Japan Mark II, which has been delayed several times. I wonder if Japan MoT will ever issue their AOC. Seems like Japan Government is playing favoritism with granting rights and slots to Spring Airlines Japan, Vanilla, Peach, Jetstar Japan and Starflyer.

Preliminary Operating Statistics

For the 2nd Quarter of the Financial Year Ended 2016


AirAsia X Berhad (“AAX” or “the Company”), the long-haul, low cost airline affiliate of the AirAsia Group is pleased to announce its operating statistics for the 2nd quarter 2016 (“2Q16”).


Operating performance in 2Q16 has exceeded expectations despite historically being the leanest quarter, as demand returned across all regions on the back of the ongoing turnaround plan initiated last year.


In 2Q16, the Company recorded a double-digit increase in passengers carried of 27% year-on-year (“y-o-y”), exceeding capacity which grew 13% y-o-y. The capacity injected was well-absorbed with strong demand returned across all regions resulting in Passenger Load Factor (“PLF”) improving by 7 percentage points (“ppts”) to 75% against 68% for the same period last year.


During the quarter, Malaysia AirAsia X (“MAAX”) added frequencies on four routes: Kuala Lumpur – Perth, Melbourne, Sapporo and Osaka, boosted by increasing demand. MAAX also added Tehran to its network and took delivery of two A330s in 2Q16, bringing its total fleet size to 23 aircraft.


Thai AirAsia X (“TAAX”) recorded a healthy PLF of 89%, an increase of 17 ppts from 72% a year ago. TAAX introduced two new routes at the end of 2Q16 from Bangkok Don Mueang to Tehran and Muscat while maintaining a fleet size of 6 A330s.


Meanwhile, Indonesia AirAsia X (“IAAX”) recorded PLF of 75%, up 26 ppts y-o-y with an unchanged fleet size of 2 A330s. This brings the AirAsia X Group total fleet size to 31 A330 aircraft as at end-2Q16.


Following a strong 1Q16, AirAsia X remains cautiously optimistic on its operating performance given ongoing regulatory issues, challenging competitive landscape, currency volatility and other external factors beyond the control of the Company. AirAsia X will continue to strengthen its core markets – especially China, where the Company recorded a 18% jump in Chinese arrivals into Malaysia from 12 months ago – and explore other strategic initiatives to ensure sustainable growth going forward.

Slower than expected reform of airspace and movement growth at Beijing Capital airport has meant that Asia's largest airport has not, as forecast, overtaken Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson as the world's largest airport. A growth streak in 2015 allowed Atlanta to become the world's first airport to handle over 100 million passengers a year. The future largest airports are expected to be in Istanbul and Dubai, but with those projects some time away from full implementation the next airport to cross the 100 million mark may come from Asia.
If Beijing Capital's growth of recent years continues it could cross the 100 million mark in 2019 – but in that year the opening of the city's second international airport, Beijing Daxing, is expected. China has made official its plan for China Eastern and China Southern and their partners to move to Daxing, while Air China and its partners remain at Capital. The split means that Beijing Capital may not cross the 100 million mark in the near future. Even if growth accelerates, Beijing will hold the title only briefly.
Recent weeks have seen spurts of capacity growth. Tokyo has finalised plans to increase Haneda capacity in preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, while Hong Kong has started construction of its third runway. Other Asian hubs – Guangzhou, Seoul Incheon, Shanghai Pudong, Singapore Changi – could put through 100 million passengers towards the late 2020s to 2030s. 100 million passenger airports will test airport management and strengthen the need for airport-airline partnerships.
For some of Asia's 10 largest airports in 2015 100 million annual passengers was a distant target - not in terms of demand but of available infrastructure. As strained as other hubs may be, there is no substantial expansion plan for Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta and Bangkok Suvarnabhumi.
Forecasting the future is difficult. Nowhere is that more true than in air traffic growth. Increases depend on infrastructure, with terminals and runways taking different amounts of time to construct based on location and politics. Not all growth has to be tied to GDP and other correlations. Lack of airport infrastructure and airline market power may dampen a forecast over the long term, while available capacity and recognition can accelerate growth.
All of this can change in a few years, often due to management and political will. Some forecasts made earlier this decade are well off track already. This report seeks to identify planned developments and what potential there is.
Gap between Beijing and Atlanta airports widening after years of narrowing

MAHB Passenger Traffic Up 4.5 Per Cent In First 9 Months

 

LABUAN, Oct 11 (Bernama) -- Passenger traffic at Malaysia's airports rose 4.5 per cent in the first nine months of this year compared to the same period in 2015, with Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) also contributed to the increase.
Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) managing director, Datuk Badlisham Ghazali, said the increase surpassed the traffic volume target of 2.5 per cent, with airlines such as Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and Malindo Air adding new services, coupled with the consolidation of Terminal 2 in Tanjung Aru, Kota Kinabalu this year into a single terminal at KKIA.
The number of passengers using MAHB's second busiest airport had soared to more than six million, he said.
"For the first nine months of 2016, passenger traffic has tremendously improved...Sabah can be proud of the growth in passenger traffic passing through KKIA. We saw a very big jump in passenger traffic with impressive international arrivals into this fastest growing airport," he said after a Townhall session with Labuan Airport personnel here Monday.
"Air travel is no longer a luxury but an option and convenience for people at large. We see a slight increase in both international and domestic traffic.
"However, MAHB is still weathering the changes that are happening at MAS after its difficulties in 2015. Hopefully, this will be the end after the restructuring and route rationalisation exercise.
"MAS is trying to churn its aircraft operation from ten hours to almost 12 hours a day. This means the national carrier could use its aircraft more efficiently and there will be more frequencies, hence, more passengers to the airport. Other carriers like Malindo Air is also growing significantly," Badlisham said.
He said the continuous efforts by tourism agencies and MAHB's marketing efforts to bring back other carriers and more frequencies had attributed to the increased volume in passenger handling.
"Carriers like Turkish Airlines and Emirates Airlines have increased their frequencies and aircraft size while others have come back into Malaysia," he said.
He said the Zika virus outbreak had not given any impact to the passenger traffic across the region.
On the Labuan's tourism plan to bring in direct charter flights from China, he said Labuan Airport was capable of handling large aircraft including Airbus A330 family.
"We welcome any initiatives (charter flight). We have been in discussions with both Labuan and the Ministry of Federal Territories leaders to increase direct flights and charter flights into the island.
"The immigration personnel at Labuan Airport are ready to accept international passengers and we are also prepared to look at the operation hour for more flights at the airport.
"I was informed there was an announcement by the Labuan Member of Parliament that a carrier was given an air operator certificate to operate charter flight from China to Labuan," he said.
"But, we may look at a slightly smaller aircraft for a start. For example, we have a special charter flight from China to Melaka on a smaller A319 aircraft. As for the charter flight to Labuan, we may start with the Boeing 737," he said.
Badlisham said the Labuan Airport runway was built under Code 4E that could accommodate Airbus A330.
Earlier, he presented MAHB's financial aid to a religious school, Tahfiz Quran Al Ummi, as part of its corporate social responsibility.
