SATS investing RM70m in Aero Mall
27 May 2008

SENAI: Senai Airport Terminal Services Sdn Bhd (SATS) is investing RM70mil in the Aero Mall project, Malaysia’s first stand-alone and external airport mall.

Of the mall’s total space of 9,290.304 sq m 100,000 sq ft), 3716.121 sq m (40,000 sq ft) is retail space and the balance the concourse.

SATS general manager finance and retail development Chan Kwai Yew said the company wanted to position and market Aero Mall as the area’s new lifestyle hub.

“Shopping, dining and entertaining at airports is getting popular now as airports are no longer just for air travellers,” he told StarBiz recently.

The groundbreaking ceremony will be held today.

The project is scheduled to complete in 18 months.

Chan said the best example of such a concept was Terminal Three at Singapore’s Changi Airport which had successfully attracted non-air travellers and residents from nearby areas to shop and dine there.

He said Aero Mall’s target markets were the business community, employees in the nearby industrial estates and the population in the Senai-Kulai area.

Chan said the mall would be connected to the present airport terminal building and constructed on the existing open air parking area. A new basement parking area would also be built.

He said the new mall, an extension of the airport’s present retail segment, would offer air and non-air passengers more choices to shop and dine, adding that the airport received overwhelming response when it introduced mid-level lifestyle products.

Chan said between 4,000 and 5,000 air passengers currently used Senai airport, which provided an active market for the existing 25 retailers.

He said among the new mall’s outlets were Secret Recipe, Kyros Kebab, Chocz, SASA Hong Kong International, MPH Bookstore, KFC, Laksa Shack, Starbucks, Nationwide and FedEx.

Concurrently SATS would also be launching the Senai Free Zone (80.937ha) and Senai Aviation Park (40.468ha), he said, adding that both would create some 20,000 job opportunities.

The Free Zone will house a mixture of SME operations, warehouses and logistics for parts and components that could be exported via air cargo at Senai Airport.

The Aviation Park focuses on maintenance and repair operations for the maintenance of smaller aircraft engines and avionic products like radios and meters.
