KLIA to KL – ERL: KLIA Express and Transit
ERL (Express Rail Link) is the fastest way of getting to KLIA from KL sentral (30mins to the airport). The Express Rail links the KL Sentral with KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport). There are two choices:
1. KLIA Express: non stop direct between KLIA and KL Sentral (28 minutes)
RM35.00 â€“ Adult / RM15.00 Children
5.00am – 12.00midnite: Every 15minutes (every 20minutes during off-peak hours – 9.00am – 4.00pm, 10.00pm – 12.00midnite)
Those using this service to get to KLIA can check in their baggage at the Kuala Lumpur City Air Terminal in KL Sentral. The city check-in service however is only available to those flying Malaysia Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Royal Brunei Airlines. You may also use of KLIA Ekspress check-in services even when holding a KLIA Transit ticket.
** If you arrive in KLIA after midnight, the only choice of transport out is by taxi (50% Surcharge from midnight to 6am).
Tip 1 (Finding ERL): From the departure and arrival halls, follow the signs for KLIA express. Take the glass lifts on the far side which has KLIA express stickers pasted on the doors. This is important as only this lift will take you to the correct side of the building on Level 1 where the ERL counters are.
Tip 2 (Saving Money): KLIA Transit offers some “money saving option”. The pivot point are the Putrajaya/Cyberjaya and Salak Tinggi stations. Getting off at either stations during your journey, burning 30 minutes, and hopping on the next train to come by will save you some spare change depending on where youâ€™re coming from. If youâ€™re going end to end, youâ€™ll skim a good RM19.30 off the full fare. But this is not very convenient since you have to physically get off the train and purchase the tickets from the counter at the respective stations. However, if you have time to spare and would like to do some sight seeing on the side at the station locations, then this will be the way to go.
