How to get from Kuala Lumpur Subang Airport to city centre
Subang Airport is located closer to the city – 24km away. It provides one terminal for passengers. There are two methods of transport from the airport into the city; taxi and bus. There is an MRT/LRT line coming to the airport soon (KTM Terminal Skypark Line), however it is not completed yet. A Subang airport taxi will cost on a coupon around 5.30€ (RM25) and metered around 4.20€ (RM20) and will take around 30 minutes into the city in non-peak traffic. There is also a bus available, but like the KLIA bus line – only goes to KL Sentral which is the central station, not located in the city centre. Therefore, an additional method of transport is required to get to the city centre from there. The SkyPark Bus will take around 1 hour to reach KL Sentral and will cost 2.10 € (RM10) one way, per person.
