KUL airport - KLIA1 terminal

How do I get to and from the terminal?

As KUL is 55 km away from the city centre, travel can take between 30-60 minutes depending on the time of day you travel or the mode of travel or even the route taken. 

There are a number of ways to travel to the city from KUL: taxi, train or  bus.

Taxis

All taxis at the airport will  take you to any destinations at a prepaid rate.

Fare is fixed as per destination and vehicles, Budget, Premier, Family or Limousine

Please be aware that all budget taxi will seat only 3 passengers due to constrain  of luggage space. Space is taken up by a LPG gas tank stored inside the boot..

Taxis have the disadvantage of being subject to traffic delays and congestion. As you come into the Arrival Hall, you will walk past the taxi counter, this is run by a company called Airport Limo.  Select the type of taxi you want, budget, limo/Luxury, Mini-van/Family, premier etc, pay for taxi, you will then be informed where to pick up your cab.  You will not be ripped off and will not have to pay any extras. 

As a guide the current prices for the Airport Limo who have the taxi franchise from the airport to Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC, Bukit Bintang area)  as well as to Genting Highlands. If you are staying at the KL Sentral hotels (Hilton and Meridien)  the price will be RM 5 cheaper than the prices to KL City Centre.

The KLIA Express Train

At the Arrival Hall, look out for the lift shafts which prominently display purple signs for KLIA Express. Take the lifts to Level 1 for the station.

The 28 minute journey takes passengers from KLIA1 and KLIA2 directly to the train hub of KL Sentral.  KL Sentral is not in a central locaiton and may require additional taxi / bus / train to your destination.  Direct trains (KLIA Express) leave every 15-30 mins depending on the time of day, from the airport station straight to KL Sentral, taking 28 minutes.  The train's great advantages are that it avoids unpredictable traffic congestion as well as being more comfortable than a taxi or bus.

There is another train line (KLIA Transit) that takes a little longer but is generally only used by locals living in the suburbs of Salak Tinggi, Bandar Tasik Selatan, the administrative center of Putrajaya and the Multimedia Super Corridor Cyberjaya.  Both trains are great value. Travelers can obtain KLIA Express tickets (55myr for a one way adult ticket) at the airport counters or at the counters in KL Sentral. If the ticket is purchased online, at the KLIA Express website, the fare is reduced to 45 myr; if it is bought by MasterCard (debit or credit) is further reduced (40 myr).

KL Sentral is the main public transport hub for KL and it’s easy to change to all city transport within the terminal. The only exception is the monorail and that’s a 5 min walk - not recommended in the humidity if carrying luggage - get a taxi!  You can check in your luggage if you are flying out with Malaysia Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Royal Brunei Airlines, and get boarding cards at the station, which is known as KL City Air Terminal (KL CAT). For more information, kindly refer to their website KLIA Express

Upon arrival at KL Sentral, head towards the taxi counters on the ground floor. The KL Hilton and Le Meridien is right across the road but their representatives will meet you at the exit of the train station to assist you with your bags and check-in. Both hotels also help with the purchase of the KLIA Express train tickets.  Guests need to book this complimentary service prior to arrival.  If you are not staying at these hotels, you can either buy a taxi coupon to your hotel or take another train. A coupon taxi will cost RM 8 - 10 to Bukit Bintang or KLCC.

Hotel Limousine Service

If the thought of public transport does not appeal to you, you might want to arrange for a hotel representative to meet you at the airport.  Many hotels include airport pick-up service in some of their room rates.  Expect these prices to be higher than the Airport Limo prices.

Buses

Going by bus is a cheap and hassle-free way to get downtown, but it is markedly slower than the KLIA Express train, less environmentally friendly and above all, subject to traffic delays just like taxis.

From the Arrival Hall, go down to Level 2 and follow the signs through a linkway to the bus terminal.  There are shops and a cafe at the bus terminal.

The Airport Coach (RM 10) brings you to KL Sentral (1 hour). The Star Shuttle ( http://www.starwira.com/) (RM12) travels between both KLIA1 and KLIA2 to Pudu Sentral bus station (1 hour). The buses are well-maintained and they have frequent services (45 mins to an hour).

There are also buses to Nilai KTM Komuter station, and express buses to Ipoh and other destinations as well.
