Unique facts about the KL International Airport

by - 4/27/2024


If you are a backpacking traveller like us, then either you must be a fan of Air Asia or you hate to fly by this low cost airline although you do that frequently. I can't count the number of times I have flown through them and hated them. Malaysia, Australia, Singapore, Bali, Phuket and a number of domestic destinations. Malaysia has been a transit zone a number of times but sadly, it had been the same old boring airport, until this time.

As I stated in my earlier post, we travelled to Phuket with our full family through Malaysian airlines.

So this was the first time I got to see the "real airport", although we had flown a number of times before to and from KL. So I was really excited to explore the real thing and observed some cool facts which I thought of sharing with you all.

Kuala Lumpur International airport or KLIA has 2 terminals: KLIA1 and KLIA2. Terminal 1 is the main airport which is the busiest in the country and Terminal 2 is the low cost one, from which Air Asia operates.

We had a stopover of 6 and half hours and it flew by in a jiffy! First of all, in order to reach the departure gates, one has to board a bus. I know, it's strange. I am not at all a fan of boarding the bus but in this case, it was compulsory. There were 37 gates for which the bus had to be boarded.

The area which we reached was an interesting one. There were a couple of pianos which you could play. I had seen a piano in an airport before in Rome airport but I had dared not touch it. This time, I played as many songs I could!

There is a very efficient coffee bot machine. It's not an ordinary dispenser, you can literally customise your drink with the strength of coffee, milk and sugar, after choosing your variant. My latte cost me 8.9 Ringitt.

There are many places to eat and shop and if that's not your jam, then you can watch the planes land and take off, which are clearly visible in every lounge.

In a nutshell, it was time really well spent.
