Mersing Airport
We were engaged to undertake the EIA and Business Plan Studies for Mersing International Airport, Mersing, Johor. Malaysia. Mersing is an highly favour tourist destination along the eastern coast of Malaysia, getting to the destination require many hours of delicate and in some sectors high speed driving. It takes over four hours from Singapore and about three hours plus from Johor Bahru.

We also produce a Low Cost Carrier (LCC e.g. Easy Jet) model business plan to compliment the Mersing Laguna development estate. The extensive development comprising of over 2000 acres of reclaimed land with mixture of four and five stars hotels and residential properties.

We concluded that such a development will create well over 35,000 jobs at the Airport. The following points also helped to buttress the argument that supports the development:-

    • Passenger Ticket
    • Luggage Ticket
    • Air Consignment Note
    • For of the best national defense tools
    • Air transports do carry some risk of accident but it is event nowadays
    • With the advent of global warming environmental concern may bring with it high operational cost. As long as the users are willing to pay to the service, this writes of any business concern
    • The major interruption air transport need to overcome every time is the weather
    • Air transport requires high initial investment and trained, experienced and skilled personnel
    • Safe and high speed means of transportation.
    • Quickest to get fresh vegetable produce to market
    • Is Airport to Airport it does not require concreting hundreds of road miles. Cost is limited to the Airport City only.
    • Useful for dispensing pesticides over a wide agricultural area and difficult terrain
    • Great strategic significance in times of emergency for moving Soldier, arms and ammunition

Summary of Ibadan Airport
Whenever there is positive economic trend in North America there is corresponding growth in World economy activities. FAA 2012-32 aviation forecast projected a “moderate” growth in the next five years. RPM was up by over 3% from 2010/11 with over 2% increase in PAX and further projection is that RPM will increase annually by over 3% for the next decade and the total number of people flying commercially on US airlines annually will increase from 32 million to over one billion by 2024.

For example, 47.68 million PAX use JFK International Airport in 2011 an increase of 2.5% from 2010. Newark Liberty International Airport also grew by 1.6% to 33.71 million. While LaGuardia Airport grew by 0.6% to 25.9 million PAX. These airports are less than thirty kilometres from each other. Finally Stewart International Airport grew by 4.7% after difficult trading.
In Europe, 10 million flights per year is projected, returning to 2008 level may be achieve this year, thanks to the Olympic and the European Football tournament.

In Nigeria, commercial PAX and airlines services have double. Due to this rising demand, Lagos Airport faces increasing strain on disorganise, mismanage, outdated and overstretched aviation infrastructure. Currently Lagos Airport proof of over six million PAX is established but rising to over ten million PAX within the next two years as the World economic recovers. This volume of PAX will be too high for her to handle at Lagos Airport.
For instance Lagos Airport as not replace her luggage handling and reclaiming systems since the Airport was commission in the late 60’s/early 70’s, neither as she replace the two lifts of which one is just managing to function. The building has never been repainted and the air-conditioning systems never worked for the past ten years . The pronouncement to replace the Central Terminal Building is blowing hot air for the past six years, tinge with usual element of corruption. Neither can a high-end CTA be erected within two years to handle ten million PAX. Through to form the Lagos State Government is now “thinking ” of building new International Airport on green belt, when full and efficient use of current facilities is yet to be established.
