Kuala Lumpur International Airport

Kuala Lumpur Aiports

Kuala Lumpur has several airports

KLIA1 is the main Kuala Lumpur Malaysia Airport Terminal
and KLIA2 (former LCCT) is the Budget version
The KLIA2 is mainly used by Air Asia and some other low-cost carriers with flights in and out from the countries around Malaysia.

There is also a hotel at the Budget Terminal which can't be recommended because they have no staff so you are always standing around and nothing happen this is the Tune Hotel.

Eg. I wanted to check in some time ago there was one person at the reception counter and about 20 people waited already in front they are also not capable even of answering the most simple question. Just have a look at our booking icon hotels listed above there really work Kuala Lumpur Airport KLIA1 and KLIA2 plus Airport Hotels

Some budget carriers such as Air Asia and Tiger Airways operates from the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal / KLIA2 situated 20km away from the main terminal building, actually, it's just at the opposite side of the tarmac.

Coach services are available for around RM 10,- between the terminal and KL Sentral in the city center that is also the train hub. Coach service starts at 4.45am and the last bus leaves 12.45 am from KL Sentral, coach service begins at 3.15am and operates until 10.30pm.

Malaysia Airlines Cathay Pacific and Royal Brunei Airlines among other offer baggage check in from here at least two hours before flight departures. The "Ekspres rail link" is the fastest modes of transport. The main difference to the bus is, the train costs around 3 times as much and actually there are only a couple of minutes difference in travel time, train ride is around 30 minutes, they departs every 30 minutes, stop are at Bandar Tasik Selatan, Putrajaya/Cyberjaya, and Salak Tinggi and is linked to other rail lines. About 3 decades ago this area was covered with lush tropical jungle after it was rapidly developed into an economic and business powerhouse.

Taxis and limousines are available at the arrival hall on level 3.To the city it takes between 45 minutes to an hour, a surcharge is imposed for transfers between midnight and 6.00am.

Malaysia Formula One Grand Prix at Sepang circuit which is close by. The structure is a main terminal building and free-standing satellites. The four-storey terminal connects with road access at first floor (international arrivals) and fourth floor (international departures). Domestic arrivals and departures are on the second floor.

Like Tokyo's Kansai, the international departures hall is at upper level which is enclosed by an elaborate roof of linked hyperbolic paraboloids, supported by squat, conical columns which also contain and distribute services.
The roof looks like a cluster of umbrellas. The underside is clad in narrow strips of wood and vertical slashes of glazing incised along the edges of each parabolic wash the cavernous space with an ethereal luminance, reflected by the lustrous floor of highly polished marble and terrazzo.

The roof form alludes to traditional Islamic domes and vernacular timber structures. Over beyond the external wall line, the paraboloids provide protection against the heat and glare of the tropical sun. Running along its southeast edge, the pier has the capacity to serve around a dozen planes. Beyond is a pair of satellites, reached by shuttle rail links from the terminal complex. If passengers may spend a long time in the satellites if flights are delayed, care has evidently been taken with their design.

Each satellite has a quartet of three-storey arms wrapped around a central circular hub, services, arrivals, and departures occupy separate floors. At the central hubs, it takes the form of inverted cones open to the sky, filled with luxuriant greenery, like fragments of a rainforest. The effect is diverting the heat of the sun and the greenery also filter light through the inclined glazed walls surrounding the hub gardens.

The plan ingeniously attempts to reduce lengthy walks to the gates
Passengers are disgorged in the center of the satellite and board their planes from gates stationed on both sides of each arm. The structure employs a similar but simplified architectural language of undulating roofs and tree-like steel structural elements. Timber-clad ceilings are randomly studded with spotlights, like stars blazing through a tented canopy, heightening the shimmering play of light and reflections. The Kuala Lumpur airport potential for expansion was a major element of the brief, so the basic arrangement of the terminal and two satellites can simply be handed (replicated in mirror image) about the central station and road network.

Transfer in the satellites (or even half satellites) can be added incrementally as necessary, and the longitudinal pier attached to the main Kuala Lumpur airport terminal can also be extended.

Considering the evolution of most major airports, this sense of ordered development immediately sets Kuala Lumpur apart, but it is also distinguished by the invigorating drama of its public spaces, which endeavors to civilize the drear experience of modern air travel.
