Getting to Kuala Lumpur
Delegates are responsible for organising their own travel to and from Kuala Lumpur. The main airport for the country is Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), which services the national carrier, Malaysia Airlines along with 45 international airlines. KLIA 2 is the new low-cost carrier terminal. Kuala Lumpur International Airport is located approximately 60km from Kuala Lumpur city centre.
Taxi is the most efficient way to reach the city centre. The journey takes approximately 50 minutes in normal traffic. KLIA Airport Limo offers pick-up and transfer services using a prepaid coupon system. Travel time to the city takes between 45 minutes to an hour. Fares differ according to the zone and type of taxi (budget or premier).
The KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit trains (also known as Ekspres Rail Link or ERL) are high-speed trains that connect the airport to KL Sentral Station in the city. KLIA Ekspres is the fastest mode of transport to the airport. The journey to KLIA takes 28 minutes while the journey to KLIA 2 takes 33 minutes.
