KLIA2 is Malaysia’s newest airport to date, built to be the country’s Next Generation Hub – International Airport Hub – that enables connectivity for both local and international low-cost and full-service carriers. With the ability to accommodate an estimated 45 million passengers in a year, KLIA2 was meant to replace the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) by having a bigger capacity and better facilities.
Since it started operations, KLIA2 currently has over 225 retail outlets and 6,000 parking spaces in order to provide endless conveniences to visitors on the journey to their travels. Apart from that, the KLIA2 is also the final stop for the Express Rail Link (ERL) that connects to other transportation hubs like KLIA, Putrajaya/Cyberjaya, Bandar Tasik Selatan and many more.
The KLIA2 is located about 2km away from KLIA and about 16km from LCCT, which stopped operations in 2014 and was transformed into a cargo terminal. There are a number of ways that you can use to make your way to KLIA2. Apart from driving yourself, the other options include:
