The award-winning international Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) has been a people’s favourite for several years and has been recognised globally for always striving to serve travellers in the best possible way. KLIA is Malaysia’s main international airport and one of the major airports of Southeast Asia. It is located about 50km from Kuala Lumpur.
Before going green took the world by storm, KLIA had already begun championing the environmental cause by promoting greenery within the confines of its compound. KLIA incorporated its 'Airport in the Forest, Forest in the Airport' concept by moving a whole portion of the rainforest to the Satellite Building in the airport.
KLIA serves domestic flights and international flights to so many destinations it is constantly ranked one of the world’s busiest airports. Your time in this airport will be productive and fun-filled as you can shop, dine and relax with the various shops, services and facilities available. KLIA2 was introduced to serve low-cost carriers.
Smoking areas are available at the Contact Pier and Satellite Building. Complimentary WiFi services are all around most public areas in the airport too, which makes checking emails and updating your social networking sites much simpler. CIMB Bank and Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) are found almost everywhere. The ATMs are served by numerous major banks. Telecommunication is made convenient with readily spotted payphones; the Maxis Centre also helps you to activate your roaming or register for broadband. With a post office, there is also no need to worry if you need to send hard copy mail urgently. The airport also has prayer rooms for Muslim travellers as well as a silent room for quiet worship. Various airlines have lounges here.
