Aero Mall to open by year-end

AERO Mall, the first stand-alone and external airport mall in Malaysia currently under construction at Senai Airport, is scheduled to open by year-end.

The RM70mil mall offers 3,716.12 sq m of retail space.

Senai Airport Terminal Services Sdn Bhd general manager finance and retail development Chan Kwai Yew said the mall would be positioned and marketed as the new lifestyle hub in the area.

“Shopping, dining and entertaining at airports is getting popular as airports are no longer just places for air travellers or well-wishers to send off airborne passengers,’’ he said in an interview.

Chan said Singapore’s Changi Airport Terminal 3 was the best example of this as it had successfully attracted non-air travellers and residents from nearby areas to shop and dine there.

SATS is targeting the business community, executives and senior managers working in the nearby industrial estates and the 192,000 population (2005 figure) in the Senai-Kulai area.

Chan said Aero Mall would also complement the Senai Aviation & Airport City to be launched in the second quarter of the year.

Meanwhile, Plaza Premium Management Ltd has chosen Senai airport for its third Plaza Premium Lounge in the country after KL International Airport and the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal.

Plaza Premium Lounge is the world’s first commercial VIP lounge open to airport users irrespective of airlines, travel class, air miles or membership programme.

“We have invested RM500,000 for the Senai lounge and see good prospects as Senai-Kulai is located within the Iskandar Malaysia growth corridor,’’ said chief financial officer Clarence Chiu.
