    Air travel is highly recommended. Malaysia Airlines have connections with reasonable prices and good service. KL International became an important hub in that region. So it will be easy to reach there wherever you are.

    by Sunflora Written Aug 26, 2002

    KLIA is the main airport serving KL. However it is quite a distance away from the city center. Expect to pay taxi between RM60-90 for a one way ride to the city center. Make sure you take the official airport taxi or airport limo. You have to buy the ticket in advance at the counter after you go through customs, before you leave the arrival area. Alternatively, there is another booth near the domestic arrivals. Paying in advance means that you are paying a standard and pre set fare. Often there are taxi touts operating just outside the terminal. These are privately owned and they charge if not as much, more than the preset fare.
    The best way to get around KL is to use the LRT or taxi. The Lrt is great because that means you wont get stuck in traffic but they have not completed the lines yet. When taking a taxi, make sure that the driver uses a meter.

    I flew to KL from Moscow (via Amman) on Royal Jordanian Airlines--probably not the most typical way to go, but it was cheap and comfortable. The photo here is KL's train station, which is also a nice entry point if you're coming from anyplace closer than Moscow!
    Taxis are easy to find and use in KL. Although the traffic is murder in this city, driving can be preferable to walking in some areas since the city is very polluted. It's also quite spread out, so much of the city is not reachable on foot.

    Malaysia Airlines, also known as Malaysia Airline System (MAS), provides service to and from the United States, Europe, Southwest Asia, Southeast Asia, India, Australia, Korea, Japan, and Mexico City.

    Malaysia Airlines offers a number of domestic flights that are frequent and affordable. Check to see if they are offering any special fares. Malaysia Airlines and Pelangi Air fly to the offshore islands of Tioman and Langkawi.

    We fley Malaysia Airlines from Melbourne. It was our 1st flight with them, previuosly had gone on Qantas. I would highly recommend them, mainly due to staff courtesy (read: lack of attitude) and the tv screens in the seat infront of you!! I watched two movies on the way over!
    Don't be afraid to take the public transport, it is an excellent system. We ventured off by ourselves to Subang Jaya and then took a bus around, which was fine. Very cheap and exceptionally clean!!
    At the same time, don't be afraid to walk around with a map either. Taxis are cheap too.

    Most people fly in, I suppose. Most international carriers that fly to Southeast Asia have KL on their route systems. For my money, though, I would pick Malaysian Airlines. It's first rate, the food is good, the service is excellent, and transiting KLIA is a piece of cake

    Air Asia

    by bonio Updated Apr 4, 2011

    KL is a major base for the low cost carrier Air Asia. We flew from KL to Macau, a three hour flight in a modern A320 airplane at a very good price - book early for best prices.

    The airport like most of KL looks very new & clean

    The different light bulb sizes and watts give the impression of a sky of stars

    Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is a new airprt of Maysia. It was large and clean with full of green trees and plants. I am proud that a Japanese architect designed it.

    We flew in with Malaysia Airline and had a very good service on bord. The Boeing 777-200 was quite comfortable and whilst playing different games you forget a little the long flight.
