Taking the First Step...
A Holistic Global Airport Company
Operating and managing the country’s aviation gateways is a privilege that comes with the responsibility to ensure that the capacity of the nation’s airports is adequate to support and enhance state and national competitiveness. Our core activities include the management, operation, maintenance and development of airports, both in aeronautical and in non-aeronautical component.
Aeronautically, Malaysia Airports’ revenue base comes from the collection of passenger service charge (PSC), aircraft landing and parking fees, and other ancillary charges to airlines. Non-aeronautical revenue base is mainly derived from non-airport operations business and commercial activities, which includes duty free and retail operations, hotel operations, free commercial zone operations, commercial space leases and management of parking facilities in our airports nationwide. No other airport company in the world matches Malaysia Airports’ business model and diverse portfolio.
This uniqueness has transformed Malaysia Airports into a holistic global airport company that provides comprehensive scope of services and skills.
Gateways to the nation
As the nation’s flagship international gateway, KL International Airport (KLIA) is well-positioned as a key aviation hub for Southeast Asia. It boasts the flexibility to combine short-haul and long-haul connections with facilities that integrate both full-service and low-cost airlines’ operations, and geographic centrality with adequate catchment areas within four to five hours of radius flight time from KLIA.
We look beyond the present and into the future by setting the pace with Next Generation Hub, a concept to transform KLIA as the ultimate hub where the world of full-service airlines and low-cost airlines are unified. While KLIA Next Generation Hub is created to promote airlines interconnectivity at KLIA, the world’s first purpose-built terminal dedicated for lowcost carriers, klia2, is set to be the standard bearer for other future terminal of its kind in the world.
The unique feature of Malaysia Airports is its vastly diversified airport portfolio, in which each airport is characterised by different operating requirements. While these airports serve the same purpose of providing connectivity, their operating requirements varies from the different commercial offering and growth prospects resulting in mixed financial performance. Over the year, we have been steadfast in growing our commercial activities that is essential in delivering strong returns to shareholders whilst enabling aviation charges to remain competitive and in turn driving further airport growth.
This has allowed us to cross-subsidise the smaller community airports and STOLports by the larger and more profitable airports around the country. Thus, by providing air travel to these rural and remote areas that has no proper road access we fulfil a very important corporate social responsibility.
