Airport Transfers in Malaysia
At Kuala Lumpur International Airport, there are two airport terminals here, KLIA1 and KLIA2. Sometimes people panic during tight layover periods, but there is no cause of worry as there are airport transfer facilities and shuttles available between the two. It takes approximately 5 to 10 mins to travel the distance and is highly efficient.
Here are a few ways by which you can travel between these two terminals:
1. Shuttle Bus
A new addition to the fleet, passengers who need to commute between KLIA1 and KLIA2 can avail shuttles absolutely free. It runs every 10 minutes, so plan accordingly. The waiting area is through Door 4, Level 1 of the main building in KLIA1, while KLIA2 has the pick-up point at Bay A10, Level 1, Transportation Hub.
2. Inter-Terminal Rail Transfer
If you don’t prefer a bus to commute at KLIA airport, but would rather prefer getting into a train, the management has that covered as well. Just take the Express Rail Link train at the ERL station at each airport. A fast and a very relaxing way to travel, heed these tips:
- On the KLIA Ekspres and the KLIA Transit train, the distance is only 3 minutes between the terminals
- During peak hours, there are seven services
- During regular hours, there are five services
- While it costs RM 2.00 for adults, it’s RM 1.00 for a child (one-way)
3. Airport Liner Bus
Departing from KLIA Bus Station, the Airport Liner Bus is another way to travel to KLIA2. While the first bus departs at 5:30 am, the last one is scheduled for 11:50 pm, so plan accordingly. You will find the bus station at Level 1 of KLIA's main building. There are overhead signages that will direct you where to go, but in case you are confused, just ask a customer service office for assistance.
4. Skybus and Aerobus
Providing shuttle services from KLIA2 airport to KL Sentral and 1 Utama Shopping Mall, the journey takes a total of a little over an hour. You can easily purchase a Skybus bus ticket online or just contact Skybus to book one. The fare should be around RM 11 to RM 14, so it’s quite affordable even if you’re on a tight budget.
