Newly opened klia2

by nicklee (May, 2014)

Reason for Stay: Just for the fun of it
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: Clean, safe, 24 hours cafes, helpful airport and security staff
Cons: No shower facilities

klia2 was officially opened on May 2nd and I was flying with AirAsia on May 10th, on a 7am flight. I arrived at the airport by ERL (KLIA Express train) on May 9th, 11pm. Since I read that this new terminal was meant for Low Cost Carriers, I had low expectations. But upon entering the airport, I was surprised how huge it was! Basically you will go through GateWay@KLIA2 which is a mall attached to the airport. If you enter from the 1st floor, it's quite a distance before reaching the airport's check in counter area but if you enter from the 3rd floor, it's just a 200m walk. As it is very new, only about half tenants are in operation. Most branded items and fast food outlets can be easily find. Washrooms are clean and big. There's also a massage shop on level 2. As I needed to charge my phone, I went to Texas Chicken and slept ther continued >>

Lots of sleeping over travellers

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Pros: Spacious?
Cons: Crowded, no seats

Like the case in most budget airline, you rare got a shuttle bus to take you from the plane to the terminal, except for a few places, like Hong Kong and Macau. Walking a long way with a heavy luggage could be quite unpleasant; thus, it is advise to bring a light hand carry or a suitcase with wheels. Another point was that there were not much signage showing you the way to the terminal, so make sure you looked for the sign 'international arrival' so not to mix up with people who we're trying to get to another flight. The immigration is pretty fast and there is no need for a Visa to enter Malaysia if you hold a HKSAR passport. Again, there is not much sign board but the way is straight forward so you probably won't go wrong. After the custom, you come to the arrival hall for international airline. The airport was divided into domestic continued >>

Review on LCCT in Kuala Lumpur

by web-administrator (February, 2014)

Pros: -
Cons: -

I arrived this terminal on Air Asia flight on Feb, 2014. I often take that Low Cost Carrier but the Low Cost Terminal in Singapore or the Air Asia Terminal in Jakarta was quite good enough so I was shocked when I saw the LCCT. It's still as someone has mentioned from 2 years ago on that there was no one spending money for the architect or design, or decoration for this terminal. I felt like being treated bad just because of using cheap flight. The outside area where there are many restaurants, food stands, cafeterias was so hot. People and vehicle were crowded and too noisy. The departure hall was complicated to understand the direction. I saw lines of check-in counters right after entering the hall with Air Asia board but the right one for my flight is in the inside corner area, which was difficult to realize du continued >>

Where: Landside
Pros: some food
Cons: freezing

I slept here for an 8 a.m. departure to Laos in 2009. I remember being absolutely freezing, and the chairs are terrible for sleeping in--hard, with dividers.... I don't know how I did it. safe, though, it seemed. Daytime has lots of food options--cafes. This is a huge terminal.

(email submission from S) My flight was from HK with airasia and it arrived after midnight at 01.00. And i need to take a bus to melacca in the morning. Since i want to save some money me and my husband didnt book any hotel nearby and think that i could stay for 3-4 hrs on arrival area or a mcdonald restaurant that --last time i checked-- have 24-hour-open sign. First we tried to sleep at the baggage claim area and it worked out until last arrival of airasia flight that was 4 o clock in the morning. A security guard wake us up with a loud voice and force us wait outside arrival area. He even ask us (that were very sleepy) to pass all of our things through xray. We dragged our luggages out and try to look for that McDonald restaurant. Busted! Even the 24-hour-open sign is still there, all the restaurant was closed. We moved to dep continued >>
