KLIA EkspresKLIA Ekspres
is a high speed train
linking KL Sentral
in Kuala Lumpur
, the capital of Malaysia
to the international airport, KLIA
. The KL City Air Terminal (KLCAT), located at KL Sentral, has the IATA
designation XKL and can be used by passengers to check in for flights from KLIA. The non-stop trip takes exactly 28 minutes. Trains depart at 15-minute intervals (during peak hours) and a basic one-way trip costs 35 ringgit
, although a variety of discounts are available.
The commuter service KLIA Transit running on the same tracks takes 9 minutes longer for the same trip, since it also stops in Bandar Tasik Selatan, Putrajaya/Cyberjaya, and Salak Tinggi.
Both services use the Desiro trainset by Siemens AG.
The Ekspres rail link was opened on April 14, 2002, with the Transit service following on August 23, 2002. Malaysians often still refer to the line by its working name Express Rail Link or ERL.
