AirAsia and AirAsia X bosses and staff  bid farewell to the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT), as the budget airline closed down its operations there before moving to KLIA2 beginning Friday.
In a tweet on Thursday night, AirAsia Group chief executive officer (CEO) Tan Sri Tony Fernandes shared a photo of the now-empty check-in counters, saying, "From my desk at LCCT. Deserted. Built for 10 million expanded to 15 million but we did 20 million due to 3 year delay."

Aviation in Malaysia.


Source: Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad.

Traffic continues to grow in 2010. In the third quarter of last year, passenger numbers were up 12.5% at KLIA, with regional airport growth just over 7%. In both cases, international traffic growth was outperforming domestic traffic.


Malaysia Airports is currently constructing the brand new KLIA 2; a low-cost carrier terminal that will initially be used exclusively by AirAsia and will be able handle 30 million annual passengers.

According to schedule data from OAG, AirAsia now operates more flights and more seat capacity at KLIA than Malaysia Airlines, even before AirAsia X, Thai AirAsia and Indonesia AirAsia are taken into account. However, Malaysia Airlines does serve more destinations non-stop (66) from the airport than its low-cost rival. A total of 53 airlines currently offer scheduled services from KLIA including KLM and Lufthansa from Europe, but there are no US carriers present at the airport. In fact, the airport still has no direct flights to any US airport.

New services launched from KLIA in 2010 include AirAsia to Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Yangon; AirAsia X to Delhi, Mumbai, Seoul and Tokyo Haneda; Malaysia Airlines to Bandung; Oman Air to Muscat; and Royal Jordanian to Amman. AirAsia X has already announced Christchurch and Paris as new destinations for 2011.

A significant development starting this weekend is the introduction of Firefly service between KLIA and Kota Kinabalu (three daily flights) and Kuching (four daily flights) using the airline’s recently acquired 737-800s. Firefly is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines that until now has operated purely turboprop aircraft from the old Kuala Lumpur airport at Subang.

Beyond Kuala Lumpur, there are seven airports which handled more than a million passengers per annum in 2009. Kota Kinabalu is the leading airport in the Malaysian region of Sabah while Kuching is the busiest airport in Sarawak.

Malaysia budget carrier- Healthy Competition.

Today with prices rising,the airlines will not raise prices and instead try to run other companies into the ground by lowering prices.Is this a healthy competition?

AirAsia Bhd was cut to "underperform" from "outperform" at RHB Research Institute Sdn Bhd to reflect a potential price war after Malaysian Airline System Bhd announced plans to expand its Firefly budget carrier unit.

AirAsia's indicative fair value was cut to RM2.10 from RM3.01, RHB said in a report today. -- Bloomberg


B737-800  has 189 seats -. nine more seats than the Airbus 320.

Go check it out NOW! FIREFLY OFFER

AirAsia is giving away FREE SEATS yet again!

We know you can't wait to visit AirAsia website to book yours! But hold on - we want to remind you that there are also plenty of low fares to ALL AirAsia destinations, which won't be more than RM 99*!



I like Firefly because when you pay one fare price and you will be allowed 20kgs of checked in baggage, 7kgs of hand carry luggage, you may choose your desired seat no, and be served soft drinks and snack on board without any additional charges.

For AirAsia each passenger is permitted to check in bags with a maximum weight of 15 kg. A baggage fee is charged for the carriage of checked baggage, which will be charged at a discounted rate if purchased at time of booking or up to 24 hours prior to the scheduled time of departure or at a full rate at the airport check-in counters. Passengers have to pay RM 20 when checked online and RM 30 when checked at the airport.

I wish every one a happy holiday .

Low Cost Carrier Terminal


The LCCT Low Cost Carrier Terminal is specifically designed to suit the Low Cost Carrier (LCC) business model where it would have no travellators, escalators, aerobridges and would be able to have a shorter turnaround time.During boarding you got to walk yourself to the plane. The pathway is quite a distance maybe about 100m. Not a fun thing when is raining even though they do provide umbrellas for you. Not really user friendly for disable and passengers with baby to carry and with hand luggage to look after with.

My Journey to Melaka & JohorBahru(Transportation)

In the city walking is a must and should make full use of it,otherwise one day our legs will devolve.Make sure you walk a lot so that you can stay young and travel to more places with your strong legs but unlike in Melaka the trishaw rider must have strong legs to paddle his passengers and charge them Rm40.00 for an hour.
From City Lounge in Old Bus Terminal(Kota Raya II) in the city to Senai International Airport.I use the white Causeway Link Express.

Fare Rm8.00

Operation hours 0530-2300 and Frequency 45-90 mins.

From Larkin Bus Terminal to Wong Ah Fook street in the city will cost you Rm 7.00 according to meter reading in taxi.

The cheapest way to tour Historic City of Melaka is by Panorama Bus(picture above).You can hop on and off as you please for just Rm 2.00 per day.Just buy a ticket onboard any Panorama Melaka Bus.If you buy a ticket for Rm 5.00 that is for Panorama Double Decker Bus you can hop on and off for both services .This panorama Melaka bus stop for visit at 23 famous attractions which include historical,shoppings and leisure areas.

From Pudu Raya to Melaka I use The Transnasional Express Bus for Rm9.50 including insurance 0.10 cents.First bus at 06:30 am and safely arrived The Historic City of Melaka via Melaka Sentral and the jouney is about 2 hrs non-stop.
Next day I continue my journey to Johor Bahru at 08:00am by KKKL express bus and it took about 3 1/2 hrs to arrived Larkin Bus Terminal in Johor Bahru.I pay Rm14.60.

Comfortable and smooth journey via good expressway.

Maybe this is the first service for this morning because KL sentral ticket counter is open at 06:00 am.
From KL sentral to Masjid Jamek station I use the first LRT just for Rm1.70 and from Masjid Jamek Station I took another LRT to Plaza Rakyat for Rm1.20 .So Pudu Raya bus terminal is just few minutes walk from Plaza Rakyat Station.

KLIA Ekspress.The non-stop journey between KLIA-KL Sentral .Journey time is 28 minutes and cost you only Rm 35.00 only while child (2-12 years) at only Rm15.00.

Just before the final descent the pilot lowers the landing-gears and extends the flaps causes high drag and thus higher fuel consumption and noise levels.Fuel Surcharge on my payment by airasia KCH-LCCT is Rm43.00.The plane touch down safely at LCCT .

From LCCT I use the SkyBus to KL Sentral .The trip is about an hour and the fare is only Rm9.00.
