KLIA connects the city with direct flights to destinations in six continents around the world, and is the main hub for the national airline, Malaysia Airlines and low-cost AirAsia.
KLIA can be reached using the KLIA Ekspres high-speed train service from KL Sentral which takes twenty-eight minutes. Air Asia flights do not fly out of KLIA main terminal but from the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT), which is served by buses from KL Sentral, and is a 20-30 minute taxi ride from the main terminal.
