SEPANG, January 14, 2009 – Chinese New Year at the KL International Airport (KLIA), this time around is assured to be a celebration that will leave many passengers and visitors in awe with a special performance by the three times world champion Khuan Loke Lion Dance troupe.

Joining the Lion Dance for a special performance on 29 January 2009, is the 2007 Winner of the Top 10 Malaysia Dragon Dance team. Together, they have promised a spectacular performance befitting the airport’s international image.

This sensory feast of sights and sounds of lion and dragon dance is heightened with acrobatic performances and appearance of the KLIA Shopping God of Prosperity. KLIA has geared up for the lunar new year with decorations of red lanterns, filling the entire airport with festive propitious colour.

In the run up to the first day of the Year of the Earth Ox, the rhythmic beats of the drums and clanging of cymbals that accompany the traditional Lion Dance will be heard throughout the airport at 6pm – 8pm on 20, 22 and 24 January 2009.

The Khuan Loke Lion Dance troupe will be showcasing two Northern lions, which feature distinctive shaggy coat of hair. A significant element of Chinese culture, these two lions will symbolically usher in all good things - health, happiness, longevity and prosperity. The Lion and Dragon Dance will be conducting a walkthrough in the airport on the days of their performance.

Amplifying this mood of celebration at KLIA are agile acrobats who will be displaying precision in special performances alongside the Dragon Dance on the peak performance day.

Meanwhile the God of Prosperity is expected to make special visits to KLIA and LCCT-KLIA to hand out “fortune” during the appearance days. The KLIA God of Prosperity will be roaming the airport for 4 hours at 6pm – 10pm from 23 – 25 January and 29 - 31 January 2009 to surprise travellers and visitors at random with exclusive KLIA Shopping ang pow packets filled with shopping vouchers, oranges and fortune cookies on behalf of KLIA Shopping. The shopping vouchers can be instantly redeemed at any of the retail outlets in KLIA or LCCT-KLIA, giving further instant reward and adding more value to shopping at the Gateway to the Nation.

There will also be a team of strollers at hand to entertain passengers and visitors with popular Chinese New Year wishes and messages as they shop throughout the period of 19 January to 2 February 2009.

All in all, KLIA is a hive of activities this festive season as it continuously drums up the shopping atmosphere following the launch of the second phase of its Shopping Campaign in early December.

But, it is not just audio and visual sensory that await passengers and visitors of KLIA this season. This Chinese New Year, the atmosphere of prosperity and good luck can certainly be experienced in the ongoing KLIA Shopping’s “The Magic Continues…” Campaign. The second phase of the three-part-contest-within-an-Ultimate contest will reward a lucky shopper with a Bumper Prize of RM 40,000 worth of travel package to any destination of their choice.

Shoppers can also vie for other prizes through “The KLIA Magic Continues…” Campaign including an exclusive travel package worth RM 10,000 and a trip to anywhere in the world worth RM 15,000. Divided into three different tiers of qualification and prizes, “The Magic Continues…” is open to shoppers who spend as little as RM150 at KLIA and LCCT-KLIA.

At the end of the entire shopping campaign, one lucky shopper will truly be struck by the luck of the Ox when he/she is rewarded for shopping at KLIA or LCCT-KLIA with the Ultimate Grand Prize of a brand new, luxury car - the RM 420,000 Lexus GS300.

Official sponsors of the KLIA shopping campaign are Lexus and MasterCard. Every shopper who used their MasterCard for purchases automatically doubles their chances to win the many lucrative prizes offered throughout the shopping campaign.

A total of RM 2.7 million worth of prizes await shoppers in this KLIA Shopping Campaign. The prizes include Grand Prizes of RM 520,000 cash, RM 280,000 worth of travel packages and a host of other monthly and weekly prizes. Shoppers are also rewarded with instant gifts during the campaign.
