Wiki-Wednesday – Kuala Lumpur International Airport

28 11 2007

Today’s Wiki-Wednesday, which weighs in at a mammoth 4903 words (despite intense editing), making it the longest post in the short history of Textual Relations by some margin, will be of particular interest to suicide bombers. The information may also be useful to those travelling to Malaysia but I suspect it’s the equivalent of a suicide bomber’s wet dream.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport

The KLIA control tower and part of the airport

Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is one of southeast Asia’s major aviation hubs, along with Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport and Singapore Changi Airport, and Malaysia’s main international airport. It is situated in Sepang district, in the south of the state of Selangor, about 50 km from the capital city, Kuala Lumpur. Built at a cost of some US$3.5 billion, KLIA was opened on 27 June 1998. Kuala Lumpur International Airport can handle 35 million passengers and 1.2 million tonnes of cargo a year. It is currently ranked as 13th busiest airport by international passenger traffic where it has handled 24,129,748 passengers in the year of 2006. In the same year, it is ranked 30th busiest airport by cargo traffic where it has handled 677 446 metric tonnes of cargo.

The airport is operated by Malaysia Airports Sepang Sdn Bhd and is the hub for Malaysia Airlines, Malaysia Airlines Cargo, AirAsia, and AirAsia X. KLIA is also the stopover point for the kangaroo route for Malaysia Airlines.

The IATA airport code, KUL was inherited from the previous international gateway for Malaysia, Subang International Airport.

Check-in counters

The planning of KLIA began in 1990 when the government decided that the existing Subang International Airport (now Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport) could not handle future demand. Malaysia’s Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad was a prime driver behind the project, which was seen as an important component of the Multimedia Super Corridor.

The decision was controversial. The location, over 50 km from Kuala Lumpur, was viewed as inconvenient; the cost ballooned from original estimates; critics alleged that, contrary to the government’s assertions, Subang could still be expanded. Indeed, work on Subang continued simultaneously with KLIA’s construction. Subang’s new Terminal 3 was opened in December 1993 and Terminal 2 was refurbished in 1995, only three years before KLIA’s opening.

With the airport site spanning 100 km², it is one of the largest airport sites in the world. It is built on a piece of agricultural land and required no demolition of private property. The master plan of Kuala Lumpur International Airport involves constructing five runways, and two terminals accompanied by two satellite terminals for each terminal over three phases. Phase One development includes constructing one main terminal accompanied by one satellite terminal that is enough to accommodate 25 million passengers and dual full service runways. Under the implementation of Phase One, sixty contact piers, twenty remote parking bays with eighty aircraft parking positions, four maintenance hangars and fire stations will be built. Implementation of phase two and three will be expansions of the airport to include increasing number of passengers. Ultimately, the airport will be able to handle 100 million passengers per annum once all three phases are implemented.

With the workforce of 25,000 workers working 24 hours a day, the airport was built within four and half years. The airport was officially inaugurated on June 27, 1998, a week ahead of Hong Kong International Airport, but flights were shifted from Subang only three days later on June 30. The first domestic arrival was Malaysia Airlines‘s MH1263 from Kuantan at 7.10am and first international passenger jet arrival was Malaysia Airlines‘s MH188 from the Maldives at 7.30am.

The inauguration of the airport was marked with problems. Aerobridge and bay allocation systems broke down, queues formed throughout the airport, and baggage handling broke down, with lost bags and waits of over five hours. Most of these issues were sorted out eventually, but the baggage handling system continued to be plagued with problems, and it was finally put up for a new complete replacement tender in 2007.

The airport also had to contend with the East Asian financial crisis, SARS and Bird Flu Epidemic (Avian Flu) which decimated passenger traffic in Malaysia and the region. Passenger growth was negative during the financial crisis and airlines that had started flights to KLIA including All Nippon Airways, British Airways, Lufthansa and Northwest Airlines, terminated their services due to unprofitability. The first phase of the airport was designed with a capacity of 25 million passengers per year but on the first full year of operations in 1999, it saw only 13.2 million. However, traffic did eventually increase with 21.1 million passengers recorded in 2004 and 23.2 million in 2005 — although this, too, fell short of the original estimate of 25 million by the year 2003.

In 2007, KLIA was rated the best airport in the world for 15-25 million passengers with Third Best Airport in Asia Pacific and Worldwide. The award was organised by Airports Council International Airport Service Quality (ACI-ASQ)

The name Kuala Lumpur International Airport was previously used as an alternative name for the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (SZB) in Subang.

Plans

 

KLIA Masterplan Map

 


KLIA Masterplan Map

Under the Kuala Lumpur International Airport Masterplan, a new runway and a new satellite building will be constructed to accommodate the increasing number of passengers. The airport Phase 2 development plan is to handle 35 million passengers per year 2008 with a new satellite terminal constructed. For phase 3 (2008 and beyond), the airport will expand to handle 45 million passengers per annum by 2012 and 100 million passengers per annum by 2020. Ultimately, there is sufficient land and capacity to develop facilities to handle up to 100 million passengers a year, four runways by the year 2020 and two mega-terminals, each with two linked satellite buildings. The airport’s vicinity will include hiking trails for jet-lagged travelers, golf courses, a theme park, a shopping center, hotels, and a wetlands nature preserve. Sepang International Circuit, which hosts Formula 1 and MotoGP races, is also nearby. There has also been a proposal for a monorail link to the F1 circuit.

In November 2006, the Malaysian government announced that it had approved the construction of a rail link between the main terminal building and the low cost carrier terminal. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2007. There were however no details of which company would carry out the project, nor was there an indication that it would be directly connected to the existing airport high-speed train Express Rail Link. With an increasing number of passengers using the Low Cost Carrier Terminal, Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad(MAHB), the company managing KLIA has approved Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) expansion beginning early 2007 to accommodate more passengers as the current LCCT is nearly in full capacity. The expansion of LCCT also shows the support for launch of Malaysia’s first long haul low cost carrier, AirAsia X by making the terminal able to accommodate wide-bodied aircraft that are used by AirAsia X. However, the Low Cost Carrier Terminal is a temporary solution for budget travellers, MAHB has submited a proposal to the Transport Ministry to build a new, permanent LCC hub in between the main terminal building and satellite building A to replace the present Low Cost Carrier terminal.

A380 Upgrades

The operator of Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad, had spend about RM135 million (approx US$39 million) to upgrade facilities at the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang to accommodate the Airbus A380. Upgrading works started on April 3, 2006 and expected to complete by May 28, 2007. Works include the provision of shoulders on both sides of the two existing runways of 15 meters as well as the taxiways, building additional aerobridges at the three departure halls, namely C17, C27 and C37, and enhancing the mezzanine lounges for upper deck passengers of the aircraft at the departure halls.

Operations and infrastructure

Design

The concept of KLIA’s terminal building area was prepared by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa. The terminal building area was designed using the concept of Airport in the forest, forest in the airport, in which it is surrounded by green space. This was done with the co-operation of the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia. An entire section of rain forest was transplanted from the jungle and put in the satellite building.

The airport is designed to handle up to 100 million passengers per year. It has signage in Malay, English, Chinese, Japanese and Arabic and an automated people mover and travelators to allow easy movement in the airport.

The runways and buildings cover an area of 100 square kilometres. With its 75 ramp stands, it is capable of handling 100 aircraft movements at a time. There are 216 check-in counters, arranged in six check-in aisles. The airport is the first in the world to use the Total Airport Management Systems (TAMS) — although the system was blamed for the airport’s teething troubles by Transport Minister Ling Liong Sik.

Air traffic control tower

 

The iconic KLIA Control Tower

 


The iconic KLIA Control Tower

There are two air traffic control towers at Kuala Lumpur International Airport: the main control tower and apron control tower. The main control tower is 130 meter tall and is the second tallest air traffic control tower in the world, after New Bangkok International Airport‘s control tower. Shaped like an Olympic torch, it houses the air traffic control systems and radar equipment.

The 55 meter apron control tower is responsible for the provision of Air Traffic Service to aircraft and vehicles movement in the northern and southern parts of the Satellite Terminal building and the cargo apron areas.

Air Traffic Control frequencies:

  • Lumpur Clearance Delivery – 126.00 MHz
  • Lumpur Ground – 121.65 MHz, 121.80 MHz, 229 MHz
  • Lumpur Tower – 118.50 MHz, 118.80 MHz, 229 MHz
  • Lumpur Approach – 119.45 MHz, 124.20 MHz
  • ATIS – 126.45 MHz

Runways

KLIA has two parallel runways, both are over 4,000 meters long and 60 m wide. Each runway also has 10 taxiways with the taxi time ranging from 2 minutes to 11 minutes. The two full-service runways can handle 120 movements per hour when one runway handles taking off and one runway handles landing. Each runway is also equipped with one completely parallel taxiway with a second parallel taxiway and Instrument Landing System to guide landing aircraft safely under all weather conditions. The runways at KLIA are undergoing upgrading works to accommodate the Airbus A380. Future expansion of the KLIA Master Plan includes the addition of another two runways and one optional runway.

Baggage handling system (BHS)

 

KLIA's conveyor belts

 


KLIA’s conveyor belts

KLIA’s baggage handling system features baggage common check-in at any of the 216 counters on a 24-hour basis and incorporates automatic bar-code sorting control, 4 level in-line baggage security screening and high speed conveyor belts.

  • 8 short-term car park baggage check-in counters
  • 8 bus and train stations baggage check-in counters
  • 3 stage baggage security screening system
  • Early check-in baggage storage (1,200 bags capacity)
  • 17 baggage reclaim carousels together with LCCT
  • 33 km total length of conveyor belts
  • Part of the belts travel through a 1.1 km tunnel from the Main Terminal Building to the Satellite Building

The BHS was built by Toyo Kanetsu and in 2006 a contract to extend the system from the satellite building to the ERL (Express Rail Link) platform in the Main Terminal Building was awarded to Siemens[11]. Cases of theft from checked-in luggage have also been reported frequently, and in 2006, eight airport workers were convicted of luggage theft

Baggage is handled by two companies, namely Malaysia Airlines and Kuala Lumpur Airport Services (KLAS). The Malaysia Airlines System handles most airlines landing at KLIA whereas KLAS also handles some other airlines.

IATA had agreed to facilitate the usage of RFID tags between KL International Airport and Hong Kong Airport after the launch of the world’s smallest multiband RFID chip in Kuala Lumpur. KLIA will be the second airport to use RFID

The RFID baggage tagging trial between Kuala Lumpur International Airport and Hong Kong International Airport is now running. Baggage tags are being issued at both Malaysia Airlines and Cathay Pacific check-in counters. The trial was delayed due to problems obtaining printers.

Fire and rescue

Airport Fire and Rescue Services (AFRS) are provided to cope with aircraft accidents. There are two fire stations at the airport, which are:

  • Fire Station 1, built on 170,000 sq feet has total floor area of 11,400 sq ft (1,060 m²) with steel structures consisting of 2 floors.
  • Fire Station 2, built on 60,500 sq feet has total floor area of 12,900 sq ft (1,200 m²) with steel structures consisting of 2 floors.

Both fire stations are equipped with fire and emergency rescue equipments. There are total of 7 Ultra Large Foam Tender, Ziegler 8-(8×8) vehicles costing RM 3.8 million each, 1 Command and control, 1 Turntable ladder, 1 First-aid vehicle, 2 Water tenders, 1 Officer-in-charge vehicle, and 1 Rescue tender in use for both fire stations.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport is the world’s second airport to be equipped with explosive goods diffusion chamber, after Munich International Airport. Diffusion of highly explosive goods can be made safely in these two chambers which cost about RM 1.6 million each.

Air cargo

The KLIA Advance Cargo Center covers 108 acres (0.4 km²) of land and can handle one million tonnes of cargo per annum, with the capability to expand to 3 million tonnes/year. The center is designed as an integrated transshipment hub within a Free Commercial Zone. Fueled by high economic growth in the South East Asian countries and China, the airport handled 672,888 tonnes of air cargo in 2006, a 2.9% growth over the 2005 fiscal year.

Making use of information technology, the main operator of the center, MASKargo introduced various artificial intelligence systems to handle cargo such as KLIA Community System (KLIACS) and e-Invoicing and Payment. It pioneered the DagangNET System, allowing users to conduct trade declarations and applying permits over the internet and speeding the approval process by controlling authorities. These systems will be linked the Total Airport Management System.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport one of the world’s busiest airports by cargo traffic in 2006 Airports Council International statistics.

Animal hotel

The animal hotel is operated by Malaysia Airlines’s cargo arm, MASKargo. The hotel manages all imports, exports and stop-over transhipments that are related to animals, and offers a pets stay-in program where owners can leave their pets to in the hotel while they are away for vacations.

Security and security surcharges

The airport’s security comes under the purview of the Polis Bantuan Malaysia Airports Berhad or Malaysia Airports Berhad Auxiliary Police. They are trained by Polis DiRaja Malaysia (PDRM) or the Royal Malaysian Police. Since the September 11, 2001 attacks, airport security has been increased with more stringent checks at security checkpoints, and upgrading to more sophisticated x-ray equipment and surveillance systems. The auxiliary policemen in KLIA wear the same blue uniform and insignia as their counterparts in PDRM, which is a common practice among the auxiliary police corp in Malaysia. The only difference is that they wear a shoulder patch with the Malaysia Airports Berhad company logo with the wordings Polis Bantuan or Auxiliary Police embroided under it. A security surcharge has been introduced to bear part of the cost.

In view of the heightened security alert at airports in the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (US), security screening checks have been stepped up on passengers and their hand luggage, as well as for checked-in luggage on flights bound for destinations in the UK and the US from Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

International and domestic travelers departing the airport must pay RM 6 for international departures and RM 3 for domestic departures levied by the airport operator, Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad. The surcharge will be collected as part of the cost of tickets

From May 21 2007, all flights out of the airport will impose the new cabin baggage restrictions implemented by the International Civil Aviation Organization, where only 100 ml of each particular liquid will be allowed in the hand luggage in a resealable plastic bag no bigger than 1 litre measuring 20 cm by 20 cm which will be given without a fee for three to six months. However, baby food, medicine and special liquid dietary and items bought from the duty free stores at the airport will not be affected on most flights provided they are sealed in a tamper-evident clear plastic bag with receipt attached

There are four hangars housing facilities to provide aircraft maintenance provided by Malaysia Airlines and Kuala Lumpur Airport Service (KLAS). When A380 hangar construction completes, the airport will the first airport in South East Asia to have a purpose built hangar for A380.

Meteorological services

The Aeronautical Meteorological Station (AMS) is located near Runway 14R-32L which provides weather information for the aviation community in compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization standards. AMS constantly make weather observations and issues aerodrome warnings on adverse weather for protection of aerodrome facilities and aircraft on the ground. The AMS houses a Meteorological Data Processing System (MDPS) for weather data collection, processing, storage and analytical needs. The MDPS is composed of various meteorological processing components such as radar, workstation, servers, satellite systems and briefing terminals.

Terminals

The Passenger Terminal Complex (PTC) was built with an emphasis on allowing natural light into the building. Thus, there is a huge expanse of glass throughout the building, and the spectacular roof has cut-outs for natural light to filter in. The PTC comprises three buildings – the Main Terminal Building, the Satellite Building and the Contact Pier. Besides the 80-room hotel at the Satellite Building, there is a 450-room 5-star Pan Pacific KLIA hotel a 5-10 minute (indoor) walk away. Regular (free) buggy services are also available to the Pan Pacific. Shopping spots are available in an area encompassing 85,000 square metres.

Main terminal building and contact pier

Interior of the Main Terminal.

The Main terminal building is located in between the two runways. The building consist of 39 square roof units, which enables future expansion of the building. There are a total of 216 check-in counters, located in 6 different islands, identified by the letters A – M (excluding I). Multi check-in services are available, designed for the use of all passengers arriving, departing or in transit. There are 61 and 69 immigration counters for departing and arriving passengers respectively, 16 transfer counters and 32 customs counters as well as 12 baggage carousels (10 for international passengers and 2 for domestic passengers).

The contact pier is the rectangular shaped terminal that is connected to the Main Terminal Building which serves as the domestic terminal of KLIA. It is currently the preferred terminal for Malaysia Airlines‘ domestic flights, however, it no longer caters the low-cost carriers’ departing and arriving passengers. At the north side of the pier, it can only accommodate narrow-bodied aircraft. In contrast, the south side of the contact pier can accommodate B737 and B747 or similar sized aircraft. Due to its length,in order to facilitate passenger movement around the airport, travellators are installed around the contact pier.

Facilities within the terminal include ATMs, a fitness center, quiet rooms, smoking rooms, healthcare service, airline lounges, a featured display area which showcases KLIA’s history and also information counters and an electronic information kiosk. The Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad derives 65% of its total annual revenue from non-aeronautical sources, with 35% from commercial space rental and a percentage of sale receipts.There were plans to increase and maximize the Main Terminal Building’s and Contact Pier’s retail area however, the plan was postponed

Satellite terminal A

The 143,404 sq metre satellite building accommodates international flights departing and arriving at KLIA. Passengers have to travel to the satellite building via the Aerotrain. There are wide array of duty-free shops and prestige brand boutiques in the satellite building. This includes international brands such as Burberry, Dunhill, Mont Blanc and recently, Mango has opened its first boutique at an airport in the Asian region. Liquor and perfumes are particularly popular, accounting for over half of total retail sales, followed by watches and tobacco products. Furthermore, Satellite Terminal A also houses the Airside Transit Hotel and some of the international airlines’ lounges such as China Airlines‘ Dynasty Lounge, Malaysia Airlines‘ Golden Lounge for international passengers and Singapore Airlines‘ Silver Kris Lounge.

Under Malaysia Airports Berhad retail optimisation plan, the retail space in satellite terminal A will be further optimized to increase its revenue derived from commercial space rental and a percentage of sale receipts to 50% by year 2010 which currently stands at 35%. Some improvements that will be seen after the refurbishments will be the Jungle Boardwalk which will be the first of its kind in the world and larger mezzanine floor to accommodate F&B outlets and viewing galleries.

Low cost carrier terminal

 

KLIA Low Cost Carrier Terminal.

 


KLIA Low Cost Carrier Terminal.

The first purpose built Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) was specifically built at KL International Airport to cater to the growing passengers of the low cost airlines, especially the passengers of Malaysia’s “no-frills” airline, AirAsia. Construction of the LCC Terminal was on a fast-track basis beginning June 2005 at an approximate cost of RM 108 million.

The 35,290 square-meter terminal is designed and built to suit the low cost carrier (LCC) business model that requires only basic terminal amenities. In order to offer lower landing fees, handling fees and airport taxes, it cuts back on amenities such as aerobridges, elaborate physical structures and decorations in the passenger terminal building. Air-conditioning, a range of duty-free shops and food and beverage outlets, and free internet terminals are available. There is no transfer facility at the LCCT. Passengers who need to make transfers need to clear immigration, collect their luggage, clear customs, make their way to the main terminal by taking the free shuttle buses and re-checkin with the respective airline.

The LCCT is located on the opposite side of the apron from the Main Terminal Building, near the air cargo area. By road, the LCCT is about 20 km from the Main Terminal Building.
