The 2006 Malaysian F1 season is an event close to the heart of the KL International Airport (KLIA). The short distance not withstanding, the airport becomes a bustling port of call at such a time.

This is hardly surprising considering that racing fans from all over the world make it a point to congregate here during this period ever since the sporting event came to our shores in 1999 with the completion of a racing circuit of international standard.

Taking full advantage of the influx of visitors to the country, the airport launched The KLIA Shopping "Real Value Real Style" F1 Contest, which started on February 14 th and ends on March 21 st 2006.

The shopping promotion is part of an ongoing shopping campaign at KLIA to encourage customer loyalty at the airport.

It offers shoppers a chance to enjoy high redemptions and win great prizes sponsored by the Official Card, MasterCard.including a Mercedes Benz E-200K through the KLIA Shopping "Real Value Real Style" Premier Contest., and the 20 Tag Heuer watches offered for the KLIA Shopping "Real Value Real Style" Shop And Unwrap The Nuggets Contest.

During the F1 Contest Launch, Yang Berbahagia Tan Sri Datuk Dr. Aris Othman, Chairman of Malaysia Airports presented 5 Tag Heuer watches worth over RM20,000 to Hashim Bin Alias. The winner walked away with his fabulous prizes after making purchases amounting over RM9,000 at retail outlets at KLIA.

The response to these contests has been nothing but overwhelming. The number of people who took part in the Unwrap the Nuggets Contest came up to 16,816 while a good 23,500 entered the Premier Contest.

In his speech at the launch of the KLIA Shopping campaign F1 launch, Yang Berbahagia Tan Sri Datuk Dr. Aris Othman, Chairman of Malaysia Airports said that KLIA is certainly more than ready to roll out the red carpet, so to speak, in readiness for the event.

He said that already there have been many significant changes and improvements made to the airport which has enhanced its image as a shopping haven. This is with the availability of more outlets offering a wide range of goods including designer items.

Also, shoppers get value for money when they spend at these outlets, thanks to KLIA's ongoing shopping campaign.

The fifth phase of this campaign, which carries the theme KLIA Shopping "Real Value Real Style" A World Of Celebrations, commenced on November 3rd 2005 and ends on March 31st 2006.

Shoppers who participate in the KLIA Shopping "Real Value Real Style" Premier Contest are also privy to the Bonus F1 Contest which commences from February 14th to March 31st 2006. Four lucky couples stand to win a full package consisting of air tickets by Royal Brunei, accommodation at the Shangri-La Pudong, Shanghai and tickets to the F1 Season at the Shanghai International Circuit scheduled from 29th September till 1st October 2006 valued at over RM 50,000.00.

The F1 Contest bonus entry form will be given together with the Premier Contest form which means if you spend RM500 or more within 24hrs and redeem for a Premier Contest form, you could participate in this additional contest.

In order to participate in the F1 Contest, you will need to complete the slogan "Going to Shanghai for the F1 is..." in not more than 15 words.

An elevating start for the F1 season in KLIA, there has been an incredible response from shoppers with entries for the F1 Contest reaching well over 1,000 entries in such a brief period of nine days.

Aside from that, there are other attractive promotions going on at KLIA's Satellite Building in conjunction with the F1 race. Not to be missed are the Tag Heuer, Oris, JLC and Omega watch promotion and the Ferrari & Mercedes McLaren merchandise promotion.

KLIA is confident that the contest, not to mention the people-friendly and festive atmosphere at the airport, will create a positive buzz amongst F1 fans and regular visitors alike.

This will certainly help boost the airport's already high standing as a much-sought after aviation hub.

Already, it has been voted third in the Favourite Asian Airport category in the fifth annual TIME Readers' Travel Choice Awards.

It also was named the Best Airport under the category 15-20 million passengers per annum in the 2004 AETRA Survey. Endorsements like these are indications that Malaysia Airports' dream to make KLIA as a nucleus for air transport in Asia can be achieved.
