iv.  Peneder ini sahaja yang telah melepasi markah lulus dalam penilaian teknikal; dan

v.   Syarikat ini mempunyai kedudukan kewangan yang kukuh.

Note:

It is a fact that in 2004 Syarikat Fajar Builders Sdn Bhd had no experience whatsoever in building airports and yet it was given the contract to build LCCT costing almost RM90 million. Incidentally, KLIA had been under utilized and still is until this present day and yet Badawi government saw it fit to specially built LCCT for AirAsia.  Why so special?

Early this year Syarikat Fajar Builder Sdn Bhd was again selected (not based on the lowest tender price) to build an extension for LCCT costing RM123.9 million.

Todate the LCCT had cost the rakyat more than RM200 million (RM90 million plus RM123.9 ,million).

In the light of the Government having already built LCCT/LCCT Extension for AirAsia, now suddenly the Malaysia government has approved plans by budget carrier AirAsia and conglomerate Sime Darby to build a new low cost terminal within reach of the capital, according to media reports. The new terminal, to be called “KLIA East @ Labu”, will be built on a 2,800 hectare site (6,919 acres) in the central state of Negri Sembilan under a private finance initiative, costing RM1.6 billion (US$461 million), the New Straits Times reported.

Food for thoughts:

AirAsia had announced that it had placed an order for 150 Airbuses and it had to take delivery of one Airbus per month. After taking delivery of 150 Airbuses, I am sure that AirAsia will certainly go places!

Recently AirAsia had also announced that it intended to go on a privatization exercise but the plan was shelved because AirAsia could not get a financier. Then it suddenly announced that it had suffered about RM460 million losses.

On 21 December 2008, it was announced that the Badawi’s government had approved a new LCCT costing RM1.6 billion to be built in Negeri Sembilan. As long as no rakyat’s money will be used to build this new LCCT I don’t really care. Provided that AirAsia/Sime Darby will also pay for the land cost to build the new LCCT!

Of late, I do not understand why EPF is investing very heavily in AirAsia’s shares when AirAsia’s foreign shareholders have disposed their stakes. Perhaps Tan Sri Nor Yakop (Deputy Minister of Finance II) can shed some light in this matter!!!

Well, whatever happens, there must be NO BAIL OUT for any private company whether it is AirAsia or any other.

– Terjemahan oleh Lee Wee Tak – Ucapan ribuan terima kasih dari Wee Choo Keong –

Untuk kita fikir sejenak:

AirAsia telah mengumumkan bahawa ia telah memesan 150 pesawat jenis Airbuses dan menerima satu Airbus setiap bulan. Setelah menerima kesemua pesawat tersebut, saya pasti AirAsia akan jade masyhur (sinis)!

Baru-baru ini AirAsia juga mengumumkan kemungkinan dimiliki persendirian tetapi rancangan ini telah dibatalkan kerana tiada penaja kewangan. Tiba-tiba pula ia mengumumkan bahawa ia mengalami kerugian kewangan RM460juta pula.

Pada 21 Disember 2008, terdapat suatu pengumuman bahawa pentadbiran Badawi meluluskan pembinaan suatu lapangan terbang murahan (LCCT) memakan belanja RM1.6 juta (nota penterjemah, kos rendah untuk pemungut cukai, belanja tahap luar fikiran bagi rakyat jelata)akan dibina di Negeri Sembilan. Selagi bukan want rakyat dibelanjakan saya tidak pedulli, dengan syarat AirAsia/Sime Darby juga bayar harga tanah itu.

Baru-baru ini, saya tidak faham mengapa EPF/ KWSP banyak melabur di saham AirAsia apabila pemegang saham asing mejualkan ppegangan mereka. Mungkin Tan Sri Nor Yakop (Naib Menteri Kewangan II) boleh memberi penjelasan!!!

Walau macam manapun, kita mesti menentukan bahawa TIADA PERBUATAN MENYELAMATKAN mana-mana syarikat milikan swasta sama ada ianya AirAsia atau mana-mana pihak.

    sdr Hafiz,

    It take makes monies sense to have another LCCT in Seremban, which is about 10 KM away! It is a big joke.

    We must know who is real person behind Airasia. You honest believe that Tony Fernades is that powerful to teh extend of being able to owe Airport Taxes since 2002 until 2008 to the tune of RM110 million. Thereafter, Airasia needs to only pay RM80 million our of the RM110 million without interest.

    Malaysians must ensure that there is no bail out for any public listed company like Airasia!

    Lets see now many more Airbuses which Airasia can take delivery of?

    New LCCT costing another RM1.6 million is a big joke. KLIA is under utilised.

    No bailout of any private company by the government. The rakyat monies is not for bailout purposes. If Badawi wants to do any bailout, please use his own monies or borrow from Scomi to do it!

    We all must oppose Bailout of companies by Badawi’s administration. We must all be ready.

    Badawi, why built the LCCT and the new extension amounting to more than RM200 million for the used of Airasia when KLIA is still under utilised until this very day?

    Badawi, why is EPF on a shopping spree for Airasia’s shares when Airasia is not blue chip share? Badawi, please take in account that EPF monies belongs to the workers in this country!

    Why is EPF so keen in buying million of Airasia’s shares? I smell a rat, EPF!

  4. No Bailout

    The nation must tell Badawi. You can stay until March to do what you could not do for the last 5 years. BUT NO BAILOUT of private companies OK!

    Badawi why are you so nice to Airasia? Airasia can owe Airport Taxes but not other airlines

    To digress a little, Badawi how is your sister in law, Noni Mahmood getting on? Please send her my best regards!

    what is going to happen to the old LCCT?

    Can the Authority or somebody intelligent please clarify whether the LCCT is a terminal or an airport.

    If it is a terminal, it means that it will not have Control tower and runway, that means the passenger have to be transported to KLIA airport 10 km away and vv and this is not practical.

    If it is an airport, it is too near to KLIA and will affect aircraft and passeneger safety, downright dangerous.
    (In India, the policy is not to have another civilian airport within 150 km)

    Sime Darby / Air Asia, please do your homework (again and again) and get your facts right !!!

    Once again, we Rakyat has been ripped off by none other than Idiots and that makes us a bigger idiots.

    Conman, you are absolutely right. I am sure that Tan Sri Nor Yakop, Badawi and Tony Fernades have no answer to your comments.

    Whatever the case may be, I do not care. I do not want to see a bailout by Badawi’s administration which premises all kinds of reforms but none will materialise.

    The rakyat must not be taken for a ride by any public listed company. Rakyat monies cannot be used for bailout of public listed companies.

    I am just curious, why not build LCCT near the main terminal? It is so convenient for passenger to access different flights.

  9. No More LCCT

    More LCCTs for who? Why is Badawi so keen to build LCCT for Airasia?

    Why is EPF so keen in buying Airasia shares when the foreign shareholders of Airasia were disposing of them so quickly last year? I now that EPF was still buying Airasia shares recently. Tan Sri Nor Yakop, Minister of Finance II, why are you keeping very quiet about EPF buying such rubbish shares? EPF is suppose to buy blue chip shares as investment for the contributors?

    So Tan Sri Nor Yakop and Badawi please explain: why both of you are so keen to help Airasia?

    I just found that ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) requires that the distance between 2 civilian airports should not be less than 40 km.

    Bro. Wee, please do something FAST before it becomes another BLACK MIDAS, WHITE ELEPHANT, FLIP FLOP or CROOKED BRIDGE.

    I am in full agreement with Conman. This Badawi is doing all kinds of nonsense before he left office. I hope that he will leave as soon as possible otherwise there will be more LCCT and more bail out of his crony companies.

    We all must oppose bailout of his cronies. It is our monies and not Badawi or Tan Sri Yakop’s monies.

    YB Wee please look for bailouts of Badawi’s cronies.

    Enough of bailout under Badawi’s administration. We must stop the government using the people monies to bailout private companies.

    Airasia must not be allowed to forward selling plane tickets unless it is backup by bank guarantee. This is to prevent any bailout at a later date.

    We have had enough of bailout! We must stop at all costs of any form of bailout of private companies.

    I would also like to know why was EPF buying Airasia shares. Badawi must explain why EPF chose to buy Airasia shares when it is not a blue chip.

    YB Wee, please table more questions on LCCT and EPF buying Airasia shares, when its foreign shareholders chose to dispose off. Furhter, its ex-chairman, Pak Fahmin, the man with the cow boy hat, also sold off his shares in Airasia.

    I would like to see how Airasia can take delivery of one Airbus every month. I must congratulate Tony Fernandes for doing a brilliant job in beating the system to owe Airport tax for 7 years. No wonder he was voted as the CEO of the last year. To me, Tony should should be voted CEO of all times.

    Tony is a great guy, who could start Airasia from scratch without any help from PM Badawi.

    I hope that Tony can tell us whether Airasia is still owing Airport Tax for 2008???

    Tony, you are just great! We all must learn from Tony and start to owe all kinds of tax including income tax!

    NO BAILOUT FOR AIRASIA. IF BADAWI WANTS TO BAILOUT HIS CRONIES THEN USE HIS OWN MONIES. WE MUST OPPOSE BAILOUT OF AIRASIA AND OTHER SIMILAR COMPANIES.

    Absolute and utter rubbish to build this LCCT at Labu.

    Air Asia has gone mad. As if there are really getting so many aircraft delivery on time – I thought that’s why they had to LEASE the A340 to fly to London right because airbus can’t deliver on time!! What a joke and such inconsistency!

  17. Cynically Yours

    Why build an airport when we already have KLIA, LCCT, Subang ? Before we get any further, why is it that Air Asia also get their ways ? Who is behind lobbying for them ?

    what bailouts ? Well, let me speculates … the bigger picture …

    Hey ! Where do I ‘park’ my planes when I get the delivery of 150 new ones lah ? I need a cheap parking mah ! So, Labu will be a good idea.

    With hard times ahead in the coming months where there will be slowdown in trade, converting these land banks will provide quite cash. A politically correct word is to liquidate their assets (for quick bucks); possibly at a premium – at the courtesy of our fellow Malaysians. Thank you Malaysians.

    With the developments in this new area, other land in the vicinity will increased in the value. Who owns these land banks ? I believed my friends will make a few bucks.

    If there is a problem of traffic at Labu, we will lobby until they close down LCCT; just like Subang ! In Malaysia, anything also can do.

    Aiyoh, very tired . Please help this project to take off, so we can have some cash, park our new planes, increased the value of property in the vicinity and improve the social and economic for the state. Bravo.
