One of the most convenient ways of travelling between the city center (Kuala Lumpur) and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is by using KLIA Transit train. It is the safest and most comfortable way of travelling to the Low Cost Center Terminal (LCCT). The train takes approximately 35 minutes to cover the distance of 36 miles (57 kilometers) between Kuala Lumpur Central Train Station; KL Sentral and the Airport. You can buy train tickets from the tickets office at a fixed price. KLIA Transit is used by millions of travelers mainly because it is a fast, convenient, and comfortable way of travelling especially for people who want to avoid the hassles and delays of traffic.
KLIA Transite: Convenience and Luxury
KLIA transit is a modern and luxurious train. The trains are very long, quiet and peaceful mainly because only few people use it at any one time. The television screens on the train air many different tourism programs about Malaysia. Therefore, visitors get the chance to learn about tourist attractions and destinations in Malaysia. Travelers never have to wait for long because KLIA train departs every 30 to 35 minutes from KL Sentral and from the airport and is almost always on time.
