Getting around by air

SkyPark Subang Airport

Many Firefly and AirAsia flights land at SkyPark Subang Airport, around 20km west of the city centre.

Transport Options

Bus

SkyPark Shuttle Connects Subang Airport with KL Sentral. Services take one hour and run on the hour between 9am and 9pm. There's also a service to KLIA and KLIA2.

Taxi

Taxis charge around RM40 to RM50 into the city, depending on traffic, which can be heavy during rush hour.

Train

KTM Komuter trains Run from KL Sentral to SkyPark Terminal stopping at Subang Jaya along the way. The one-way fare is adult/child R15/7.50 and the journey takes 30 minutes. From KL Sentral, services leave roughly every hour between 5.30am and 9.30pm, from SkyPark Terminal between 7.50am and 11.20pm.

KLIA

Kuala Lumpur International Airport, which comprises two terminals, is about 55km south of the city. There are hotels here (including one inside the main KLIA terminal), left luggage facilities, tourist information booths and plenty of places to eat, drink and shop.

Transport Options

Train

The fastest way to the city (30 minutes) is the comfortable KLIA Ekspres, with departures every 15 to 20 minutes. From KL Sentral you can transfer to your final destination by monorail, light rail (LRT), KTM Komuter train or taxi.

The KL Transit train also connects KLIA with KL Sentral (35 minutes), stopping at three other stations en route (Salak Tinggi, Putrajaya and Cyberjaya, and Bandar Tasik Selatan).

If flying from KL on Malaysia Airlines, Malindo Air or Cathay Pacific, you don't have to haul your luggage to the airport. You can check in your baggage at KL Sentral before boarding a train to KLIA for your flight.

Taxi

Taxis from KLIA operate both on a fixed-fare coupon system and the meter. Buy your taxi coupon before you exit the arrivals hall; standard taxis cost RM75 (for up to three people), premier taxis for four people cost RM103 and family-sized minivans seating up to eight cost RM200. The journey will take around one hour. Given the extra charges on the metered taxis for tolls and pick-up at the airport (RM2), plus the unknown traffic factor, the fixed-fare coupon is the way to go.

Going to the airport by taxi, make sure that the agreed fare includes tolls; expect to pay RM65 from Chinatown or Jln Bukit Bintang.

Bus

The Airport Coach takes an hour to reach KL Sentral; for RM18 it will take you to any central KL hotel from KLIA and pick you up for the return journey for RM25. The bus stand is clearly signposted inside the terminal. Other bus companies connecting KLIA to KL Sentral are Skybus and Aerobus.
