MAHB keen on more Tune hotels near LCCT

August 16, 2007

Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) is keen to partner with no-frills Tune Hotels.com to build more Tune Hotels in the vicinity of low-cost carrier terminals (LCCTs).

MAHB managing director Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad said: “That is a possibility, but that depends on the availability of the land and where there is a need to have the hotel.”

Bashir was speaking to reporters at the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) here yesterday between MAHB and Tune Hotels.com for the leasing of land to the latter to build a hotel near the KL International Airport’s (KLIA) LCCT.

Tune Hotels.com founder Datuk Tony Fernandes said: “We will also build another hotel in Kota Kinabalu and hopefully soon in Kuching and Penang and I hope we (MAHB and Tune Hotels.com) can work together to make Malaysia a hub for low-cost airlines.”

He said: “If you look at AirAsia, 18 million people are going to fly AirAsia – 10 million passengers will be going through the LCCT, so occupancy would not be a problem for us.”

“With the plans that MAHB have with the new terminal, I really do believe that we will have two to three Tune Hotels there (at KLIA),” he added.
