MAHB Expects RM800 Mil Sales Revenue From Commercial Activities At KLIA, LCCT

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (Malaysia Airports) expects to earn about RM800 million from commercial activities at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT).

Malaysia Airports senior general manager (Operation Services) Datuk Azmi Murad is confident of achieving the target after Malaysia Airports earned about RM70 million from the sale of shopping retails between January and June.

To increase passenger spending, Malaysia Airports was expanding the retail space at KLIA to transform it into a bigger, colourful, vibrant and interesting shopping destination.

The transformation project called "Satellite Retail Optimisation Project (SROP) is the first of Malaysia Airports long-term efforts to make KLIA a fully-contained Airport City, he told reporters after the launching of KLIA Shopping Campaign 2008 and 2009 by Malaysia Airports chairman Tan Sri Dr Aris Othman.

The first phase of SROP, due for completion in October, is expected to be fully completed by June next year, he said.

He said SROP would provide more avenues for local entrepreneurs to have a headstart in penetrating the international market via the additional space available.

"Once fully completed, the commercial area will have 26 outlets comprising 9 retail, 9 dining and 8 service outlets," he said.

Azmi said the new commercial area would contribute and increase sales by 30 percent after it was fully operational in June next year.

Malaysia Airports General Manager (Commercial Services) Umar Bustamam said the KLIA Shopping Campaign, hosted in conjunction with KLIA's 10th anniversary, would start today and end in June 2009.

"This campaign features three shopping contests instead of the usual one. Prizes worth RM2.7 million await shoppers at KLIA and LCCT," he said.

A shopping contest will be held every 12 weeks during the campaign and any shopper who spends a minimum of RM250 will be rewarded with an instant gift.

A higher spending of RM500 will qualify them for the Grand Prize of each contest. Weekly prizes also await shoppers with each of the three shopping contests offering different prizes, he added.
