With the opening of a new SUBANG airport was closed to only accept turboprop aircraft, and it currently serves only flights of the two airlines: Firefly and Berjaya Air. Both airlines have flights to cities in Malaysia and coming to Malaysia by Asian countries

    Firefly flies within mainland Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, the Islands of Phuket and Samui in Thailand.

    Berjaya Air flies to the Islands of Tioman and Redang and Koh Samui in Thailand.

    Tickets for flights are best purchased on the airline's website, although you can sometimes find a profitable compound routes through find tickets with these airlines. But be careful when developing such a route. If your flights arrive in KLIA or KLIA2, departure Il SUBANG (well, or Vice versa), it is better to lay 2-3 hours to get from airport to airport.

    SUBANG airport is 25 kilometres from the centre of Kuala Lumpur and more than 50 kilometers away from KLIA and LCCT (SUBANG airport on the map). To get from the city to the airport is easiest by taxi (the meter comes out to about 50 ringgit, 45 min). You can use public transport: in the direction of the airport there are buses of the system of Rapid KL number U81 иU81W, which will cost 3 ringgit. The bus leaves from the station Sultan Mohd Bus Hub, which is adjacent to the Pasar Seni LRT station of the Kelana Jaya line city metro Kuala Lumpur (you can get on a bus and in other places, route information here). Time to airport – 45 minutes – an hour and a half depending on traffic.

By bus

Bus service in Malaysia is very developed, you can reach almost any corner of the country (with the exception of the island of Borneo where you want to fly from mainland) and Thailand (the city of hat Yai) and Singapore.

All other types of railway vehicles going to the station KL Sentral, where you can also take the metro or bus to the centre.

Besides the metro, you can reach the tourist centre in the metro Pudu Raya bus 690. Will have to go 40 minutes, but this is the cheapest option, only 1.9 ringgit.

Information about long-distance/international terminals KL, they serve the areas and location you can see the Bus station of Kuala Lumpur.

By train

Details about the trains and railway Malaysia read here.

The cheapest way to get from other cities in Malaysia or neighboring countries (Thailand and Singapore) in Kuala Lumpur is to use rail. For example, from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur can be reached in 34 ringgit, which is approximately equal to 340 rubles.

A railway line connects KL with Singapore to the South and should be in the Thai city of Hat Yai and then to Bangkok to the North. Trains run along railway along the West coast of Malaysia, along the way making stops in major cities of Malaysia.

From Bangkok and most cities in Thailand with direct trains to Malaysia did not go, but you can get there. You have to first drive to the border of Padang Besar station (this station is on the border), here to go through passport and customs control, and then take the train to Kuala Lumpur or any other station in Malaysia. By the way, the cheaper the trip will be released, if you take the train to station Batteries (Butterworth) near the island of Penang, and there go on foot to the bus station and take a bus to Kuala Lumpur (buses depart constantly and very often). Another option – to reach by train, bus or plane to the Thai city of hat Yai, where you can catch a direct train to Kuala Lumpur.

Depart and arrive trains in Kuala Lumpur at the city's main station KL Sentral. When you purchase tickets to Kuala Lumpur, keep in mind that you need to select the destination Sentral Kuala Lumpur (this is station KL Sentral), not Kuala Lumpur.

To buy tickets for trains throughout Malaysia and also in Singapore or in Thailand directly at stations; via the Internet on the website of the carrier http://www.ktmb.com.my/; to book by phone or email listed on the website. Tickets can be purchased no earlier than 30 days before departure.

Keep in mind that buying tickets on the train Singapore – Kuala Lumpur you will have to pay more than double the Kuala Lumpur – Singapore. Even if you purchase tickets on the website of the shipping carrier and your itinerary starts in Singapore, still overpay, and almost three times more expensive. These oddities come from the fact that the cost of tickets in Malaysian ringgit are converted at the exchange rate in Singapore dollars (the rate of which is higher), and transferred one to one. To circumvent this oddity purchasing two separate ticket on the same train from Singapore to Johor Bahru on the Malaysian side (and pay for it on the Singapore prices, but a small distance), and a second ticket from Johor Bahru to Kuala Lumpur for the Malaysian rates. If we fail to purchase a ticket Singapore - Johor Bahru on the website, then purchase it at the box office in Singapore.

On the boat

In KL you can not get directly from the sea, since the city is located at a distance of 30 kilometers from the coast. But 40 kilometers from the capital is the town of Port Klang, which is the most important sea port. There is a ferry service to the island of Sumatra (Indonesia).

From Port Klang to KL is easily accessible by bus or use the commuter trains (KTM Komuter), which is part of the urban transport system of KL.

September was flying from Bali to Seoul a low-cost carrier airasia via Kuala Lumpur. Specially made dock 12 hours. I walked the entire downtown, while getting to the Petronas twin towers, the whole day there, and spent. To be honest, in addition to towers in the city did not impress, I would be glad if someone tell me that you can still see when we're in town next time.

admin 22 Dec 2017, 10:07
Need to clarify whether you have to change terminal from international to budget, because there is also fly international flights. If there is a change, that's right, you get the Luggage, but then do not return to satellite and go to KLIA2 on aerotrain - https://nashaplaneta.net/asia/malaysia/ ... kliatolcct.
If you are not changing terminals, you will have to do as you described. But just in case, verify at check-in and Luggage delivery, can make out from to the end point. This, of course, is unlikely, so it is not accepted, sometimes they are combined flights, when the plane of one airline and tickets from different airlines. ...
