KLIA2 Airport (Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2)
Malaysia new airport, called KLIA2 (Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2), it’s replacing the LCCT (Low-Cost Carrier Terminal). KLIA2 Airport started operations on 2 May 2014. All flight operations at LCCT were moved to KLIA2 by 9 May 2014. Also, KLIA2 is built to cater for the explosive growth in low cost travel in the region.
Built at a cost of approximately RM4 billion (US$1.3 billion). KLIA2 is the world’s largest purpose-built terminal dedicated to low-cost carriers. The main terminal building of it’s connected with its satellite piers with a skybridge, making it the first airport in Asia with such facility. The ATC (Air Traffic Control) Tower is the tallest ATC Tower in the world. The terminal has a built-up area of 257,845 sqm with 68 departure gates, 10 remote stands, 80 aerobridges, includes a retail space of 35,000 sqm.
The modern design of KLIA2 airport will make you feel stand inside the luxury building. Furthermore, all the facilities built with high technology feature. It’s also integrated with the public transport like terminal bus, taxi service and ERL (Express Rail Link), is the terminal train from airport to the KL Sentral. When I’m go home, I just buy the bus ticket to my hometown. The facilities was convenient and save a lot of time.
The Airport is the place which the people separate and reunion, happiness and sadness were happening everyday here. Each time I come here because I back home and leave home. As well as it’s a gateway to going far from your current location, miraculous place.
I like to buy the evening air ticket, because at that time can see the sunset above cloud, it’s amazingly beautiful. Not every time can see it, only get the window seat and nice weather, but very lucky the flight was not delay, so I can get one shoot above the cloud.
