New low cost carrier terminal KLIA2 in Kuala Lumpur
On may 9, 2014 at the international airport of Kuala Lumpur KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) earned the new low cost carrier terminal KLIA2. Up to this point all of the budget airline worked through the LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal), with the commissioning of the new terminal stopped taking passengers. All the low cost flights now arrive and depart not from LCCT and KLIA2, including the most popular budget airline AirAsia in the region. We have been at this airport, and introduce you to some changes.
The new terminal KLIA2 was four times bigger than the old LCCT. However, despite this, only started it already filled to capacity with people and flights. Literally every few minutes departs or arrives the new flight. This terminal is now the world's largest airport, intended for use only budget airlines.
KLIA2 is much more comfortable and easier to use the old terminal. If in the registration area and baggage drop, yet still there is some crush and confusion, you can stand automatic self-registration, etc., the departure area here is just gorgeous. It is huge, and comfortable, and once here, passengers can enjoy pleasant conditions expected for the flight. If the old airport nobody was in a hurry to get to the departures area, as at times there was just nowhere to sit down, now on the contrary there is a sense of rush here. In international departures there are numerous duty-free shops, restaurants and cafes, other service. In this area, and indeed throughout the airport, and offers free Internet Wi-Fi (you will have to register first by entering IC number with national registration cards of citizens of Malaysia, but who needs one such number is easy to find).
Not less convenient now and transport. The old LCCT though, and was very close to the international terminal KLIA, was associated with him in the usual way. And to get from one terminal to another, had to pass about 20 kilometers, which took at least an hour, and with the intervals between the sending of the buses had to lay on this trip for at least one hour. Now to the new terminal railroad, which runs high-speed train KLIA Express and KLIA Transit. And now to move between terminals, you need to 2 ringgit (refer to the currency of Malaysia and the exchange rate) and no more than 30 minutes of time given the intervals between trains. On the very same trip on the bullet train takes less than 5 minutes. Accordingly, on these trains you can very quickly get to the centre of the city, namely the city KL Sentral for 55 ringgit.
For those who wish to get to the city more economically (ride on the KLIA Express and KLIA Transit is 55 ringgit), still preserved bus routes. Reaching KL Sentral or Puduraya (Puduraya) is from 12 ringgit. Moreover, even the bus routes have expanded, and now it is possible to get not only himself in Kuala Lumpur, but in Malacca, Ipoh (Ipoh), Johor Bahru (Johor Bahru) and other cities of the country. You can also directly from the airport to take a bus to the main bus station of Kuala Lumpur TBS, where you can drive anywhere in the country (see more about the bus station TBS)
