Getting to Malaysia is easy with over 40 airlines, including Malaysia’s own carrier, Malaysia Airlines. All flights arrive and depart at the new state-of-the-art Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) / KUL located at Sepang, about 70 km or an hour's drive south of Kuala Lumpur, the country’s capital.

From KLIA, visitors can take connecting flights to most major cities and towns in Malaysia as well as to Sabah and Sarawak. The airport is well equipped with the latest facilities and services to cater passengers either arriving into the country or on a transit to other destinations.

Malaysia has 5 international airports, 14 domestic airports and 18 airstrips. The international airports are at Sepang in Selangor, Penang Island, Langkawi Island, Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, and Kuching in Sarawak.

KLIA - Kuala Lumpur International Airport
This super-modern airport to Kuala Lumpur is the first introduction to visitors arriving to Malaysia. Major airlines from all over the world fly to this new airport, some 80 km outside KL and takes about 1 hour drive from KL. There is not too much near it (rather rural) So if you are there for just a few hours, you probably do not have enough time to go anywhere. But it has all the conveniences of any major airport - Lockers, shopping, internet access, etc.

Subang Airport
Subang Airport used to be Malaysia’s main international airport until it was taken over by the ultra new Kula Lumpur International airport which opened in 1998. Officially known as the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (named after the Sultan of the state of Selangor), it is more commonly referred to as the Subang Airport. Located on the outskirts, it is about 25 km from the KL city centre. Subang airport has since been designated for general aviation and turboprop aircraft.

Malaysia Airlines subsidiary "community airline" Firefly operates from Subang. Firefly currently flies daily from Penang to five domestic destinations (Kuala Lumpur via Subang, Kota Bharu, Kuala Terengganu, Kuantan and Langkawi) and two regional destinations in Thailand (Koh Samui and Phuket).

Berjaya Air also operates from here and flies daily to Tioman Island, five times a week to Pangkor Island, and to Redang Island in the east coast. It also has two flights weekly to/from Ko Samui in Thailand.
Transmile Air Services, a national cargo carrier also operates from here as well as several companies offering chartered flights and helicopter service. There is a number of flying clubs located here as well.

The national carrier, Malaysia Airlines (MAS), currently flies to more than a hundred destinations worldwide. Domestic destinations are catered through its subsidiaries Firefly (Peninsula Malaysia) and Mas Wings (East Malaysia)

The other well known airline is Air Asia. The airline thrives on no-frills flights to reduce cost which is passed on to passengers. Free seating flights speed up processing time and flight punctuality. Air Asia is a budget airline... It is to be noted that "budget" price air-ticket is only available when you book 2 or 3 months in advance. Being a budget airline, no in-flight service is provided but you may purchase food and refreshments which are reasonably priced. The only problem with Air Asia - brace yourself for flight delays. So if you have a connecting flight to somewhere else, book a earlier flight just in case they are delayed.

The airline flies not only domestic routes but also regional routes. Check-in counters open 2 hours before flight and closes 45min prior to departure time. One thing to watch out for is the 15 kg luggage limitation and charges 5-7 RGT (USD 2) per kg over. So your luggage could be more expensive then your person. If you do not need all your baggage check with your hotel or lockers at the airport for leaving it behind.

From K. Lumpur International Airport, its departure and arrival are at the LCCT (Low Carrier Cost Terminal).
