AirAsia calls for truce in dispute with MAHB over KLIA2
tak kisah la apa masalah antara depa2 yg berkait niSEPANG: Tan Sri Tony Fernandes is ready to move on following the bitter feud he and his company, AirAsia Bhd, had with Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) over the high cost of building a bigger KLIA2.
“Enough has been said and we just wanted to make it affordable. I have invited Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad to our 10th year anniversary this Thursday and maybe we can find a win-win solution,'' Fernandes told StarBiz yesterday.
This came two hours after the AirAsia press conference where 10 of its executives demanded for a service level agreement (SLA) from MAHB before the carrier moved to KLIA2 in April 2013.
As at press time, it could not be ascertained if Bashir will accept the invite from Fernandes since it has been a bitter spat between the two. However, a day earlier, MAHB did offer an olive branch when it posted an announcement on its website, saying that “it has always been MAHB's view that in dealing with our partners, issues raised by either party are best resolved through proper consultation.
“We wish to continue working closely with all our partners to address any issues that may arise and will do so through a proper working forum as we believe this is the best and most objective way to do so. MAHB believes that any disagreements in public are neither good for the image nor in the best interest of the country.''
Ironically, when the AirAsia press conference was going on, Fernandes tweeted to say that one of the letters posted on MAHB website was fake, but quickly changed it to say that what he meant was the argument was “fake'', not the letter.
Earlier at the press conference, AirAsia chief operating officer Bo Lingam said: “We need an SLA to know what our cost is going to be.'' His main concern was that the high cost of KLIA2 could potentially result in AirAsia having to pay high rentals, surcharges and extra bills.
“We also want MAHB to state in black and white the current airport charges so that it will not be raised once we move to the new airport,” Bo said.
In response to the SLA, MAHB said in a statement issued yesterday evening that “we have indicated our willingness to have an SLA and are awaiting AirAsia's proposal on the SLA for further study and consideration. We would also like to reiterate that the airport charges, both current and future, are regulated by the Government and the mechanisms for future increases have been clearly defined in our Operating Agreement with the Government.''
MAHB now has a Conditions of Use (CoU) agreement with its airline partners as well as the ground handlers at KL International Airport. The CoU provides guidance on the use of airport facilities, particularly with regard to the safe and secure use of the airport, as well as a schedule of applicable airport charges, and that was very much in line with the common industry practice.
AirAsia executives also hoped that MAHB will build a taxiway that they have been asking for from Runway 3 to Runway 2. That is despite getting a place for an office tower, a hotel (Tune Hotel) and a car park. They also said that having a “chilling facility'' located at KLIA2 would help them store food before it was loaded onto aircraft.
AirAsia executives said the current site was not the perfect location for KLIA2, and that they believed this had led the cost of building KLIA2 to balloon to between RM3.6bil and RM3.9bil. They also wanted a joint committee set up for better coordination between the two parties.
To this, MAHB said: “The present site for KLIA2 was selected based on the National Airport Master Plan after a detailed and comprehensive study involving all our stakeholders including Transport Ministry, Department of Civil Aviation, Finance Ministry, Home Affairs Ministry and all airlines including AirAsia.''
MAHB added that the weekly meetings held with AirAsia and other stakeholders served as a platform for all views and requirements to be discussed and addressed, and thus far 47 had been held.
“Most of AirAsia's requests have been complied with. Only issues which have financial implications are referred to the board. We will continue to engage AirAsia during the weekly meetings,'' it said.

Ketua pegawai eksekutifnya, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya berkata, MAS akan mengendalikan entiti baharu itu tanpa campur tangan daripada entiti sekutu yang lain.
"Masih ada lagi pasaran untuk penerbangan kelas perniagaan walaupun dalam keadaan industri penerbangan yang tidak menentu yang terjejas oleh saingan sengit dan kenaikan harga bahan bakar jet,” kata beliau dalam taklimat media mengenai rancangan pemulihan perniagaan MAS di sini hari ini.
Ahmad Jauhari berkata, syarikat penerbangan baharu itu akan menjadi model perniagaan baharu untuk keuntungan yang lebih mampan dan memastikan tumpuan diberikan kepada keperluan unik para pengembara premium serantau.
"Dalam jangka panjang, ia akan terbang ke semua laluan domestik dan serantau yang diberi perkhidmatan oleh MAS hari ini,” kata beliau.
Beliau berkata, MAS berhasrat untuk mewujudkan struktur pengurusan yang berasingan untuk memberi fokus kepada keperluan unik para pengembara premium serantau ini.
"Syarikat penerbangan baharu ini akan menetapkan standard baharu untuk kualiti produk dan perkhidmatan, kecekapan kos dan kecemerlangan operasi,” kata beliau. - Bernama
