What is the option for Airport Transfer?

While KLIA and KLIA2 are both situated in Sepang, getting to the Kuala Lumpur city centre is can be quite a hassle to even with all the public transportation options,

Even though KLIA and KLIA2 are quite far from Kuala Lumpur city centre. But you can conveniently get to KL town thanks to a substantial array of efficient public transportation options. Most of these public transportations lead to KL Sentral, which is Malaysia’s premier one-stop transport hub and the largest train station in Southeast Asia.

  1. KLIA Ekspres (Airport Train)

KLIA Ekspres is a non-stop airport rail link service in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, linking Kuala Lumpur Sentral (KL Sentral) with KLIA and KLIA2. The journey takes just 30 minutes to KLIA and 33 minutes to KLIA2, operating at 15-minute intervals during peak hours and 20 minutes during off-peak hours.

Besides the KLIA Express there is also the KLIA Transit. In contrast to the KLIA Express, the KLIA Transit stops at three other stations between KLIA and KL Sentral; Bandar Tasik Selatan, Putrajaya & Cyberjaya, and Salak Tinggi. The KLIA Transit train is mainly used by people that live in Kuala Lumpur but work outside the city; mostly in Putrajaya and Cyberjaya.
