KLIA Ekspres, Kuala Lumpur
The Klia Express will get you from KLIA to the city centre in about 1/2 hour.
A fast efficient and clean service an excellent introduction to the city.
These two sites will help
The KLIA ekspress is the fastest way to/from the far out airport from KL. First you have to reach sentral station (for example by monorail from Bukit Bintang) and from there the train takes about 30 minutes and costs 35 Ringit.
If you just have a few bags, the KLiA Express (RM35 one way) is the fastest and most comfortable way to get to the city (28 minutes?).
They have uniformed porters that will help you carry your bags into the train.
Give them RM10 and they will actually sometimes ride with your luggage all the way to KL Sentral station (where the new Hilton and Le Meridian Hotels are) in KL and then help you unload your luggage!
You can also check in your luggage at KL Sentral station for your flight back 2 hours before departure if you use Malaysian Airlines then just hop on the KLiA express to the airport when its time.
Sometimes during the travel fairs such as MATTA at PWTC they have promotional booths where if you buy a ticket they give you one free so buy several tickets (they are valid for 6 months) and this will save quite a bit of money
However if you have tons of luggage then it is advisable to use the airport limo.
If you want to make sure that you will get your plane and won't be stuck in the traffic jam, just take the KLIA Ekspress.
Being the fastest train in South East Asia, it takes only 28 minutes from the city (KL Sentral station) to get to the airport, 70km away from the city. There is a train every 15 or 20 minutes from 5am to 1am and it costs 35 RM per person for one way (a bit expensive though). Of course, there are other ways to go to the airport but if you go for this option, you will spend a good journey in brand new trains with screens displaying the news or some advertisements about KL!
THERE ARE MANY REASONS TO TAKE THE TRAIN:
* You will save time as compare to a taxi
* You will save some money if you are 1 or 2 people
* If you stay at Meridien or Hilton hotels, KLIA Ekpress is just in front of these 2 hotels.
* From KL Sentral, it is convenient to go the the city centre (Bukit Bintang or KLCC) as you can take the Putra LRT (the tube), the monorail or a cab and you will be there in less than 10 minutes.
* You can check in your luggages at KL Sentral at least 2 hours before your flight if you travel with Malaysia Airline. It is a good idea when you check out of your hotel at noon and have a flight at 11pm for example. You can still go and check in your luggages in KL Sentral, spend the rest of the day in KL and go to the airport at the last minute.
* From the airport, if you don't have time to buy a ticket before jumping into the train, don't worry: you can buy it on arrival at KL Sentral! This is very convenient as you don't have to wait another 15 minutes just because you miss the train while buying your ticket.
the KLIA Ekspres is the fastest mode of transport that ply between KLIA and the city. A non-stop ride on the KLIA Ekspres takes only about 30 minutes (or less) from the airport to the KL Sentral Station where you can again hop on another train to take you to the stop nearest to your hotel/destination. based on my trip last november 2006 fares are about RM35 for adults and the train departs every 15 minutes during peak hours (5am-9am and 4pm-10pm) and every 20 minutes during off peak hours.
KL International Airport is located notoriously miles from the city. An easy way to get to town is by train - the KLIA Ekspres (single ticket RM35, journey takes 28 minutes, trains run every 15-20 minutes) runs from the airport to KL Sentral, the city's train station located southwest of the city centre proper. Most people will have to catch a cab to their final destination - buy a ticket from the taxi counter. Note that KLIA Ekpsres only run from the main airport, not from the Low Cost Carrier (LCC) Terminal - God help you if you fly from there!
Alternatively, catch a cab direct from the airport by buying a ticket from the taxi counter - it cost about RM75-85 to the city centre and takes about 1 hour, traffic permitting.
We thought we would check our bags in with Malaysia Air check in at KL Sentral. The idea is you check your bags through and can then get on the train to the airport. But you can checkin 12 hours before the flight. We were on a late night flight so we thought we could off load the bags and be free for the day. We were not sure if we would catch a cab or the train to the airport. Guess what? Malaysia Air made up our minds for us. You can not check your bags through UNLESS you have first bought a train ticket. What the heck does it matter how it get to the airport? I could not get to the Malaysia Air check in desk without a train ticket. What difference is it to Malaysia Air how you get to the airport anyway? I wrote to Malaysia Air to ask and they did not reply. Bring on JETSTAR, Sydney to Kuala Lumpur starting September 2007!
This train has large compartments for luggagge, the seats are similar to seat's plane but in two ways with a small table next to the big window and several tv with publicity of the city.
Is very comfortable and safe, almost didn't feel the trip, excellent choice, only 28 minutes without traffic, was just great. (70 RM round trip)

Well if you ever wanna catch the train to KLIA or Putrajaya /Cyberjaya be sure to use the KLIA express. You can catch the KLIA Express at KL Sentral. The trains is beautiful and spacous inside and cool from the AirCon. Nice Lcd monitors all over so you don`t have a dull ride to your destination. I would definitely recommend a ride in here if you going to take a international flight in KLIA. Unfortunately it does`nt go to the LCC "Low Cost Carrier" terminal if you flying with Air Asia.
