"Low-cost airlines don't go to and from KLIA!" KLIA - KL International Airport Tip by berenices

Don't make the mistake that I did - assuming that all airlines go to and from KL International Airport, because they don't! Thank goodness, I had a good 3 hours before my flight, so I had time to spare going from one airport to the other. Anyway, what is confusing is that they call this airport, LCC Terminal, or Low-Cost Carrier Terminal. I thought all along that this was just a terminal in KLIA -- as it is in most other countries, where they have a separate terminal for the low-cost flights, but still within the same airport. Wrong assumption!

The LCC Terminal is far from KLIA, and it takes 20 minutes by bus from KLIA. The good thing is that there is a bus which goes frequently from KLIA to LCC, and the roads are good, without traffic practically as it is way outside the city center.

Still, it is misleading and confusing -- and the dearth of information about LCC (and how to get there) is something that authorities should look into.
