KLIA2 Arrival Guide

The moment you step out of your flight, you will be pleasantly surprised with KLIA2. KLIA2 does not make you feel like arriving at a low cost terminal.

No-longer you have to worry about walking down the flight in rain. Aero-bridge is used to connect all arriving flights with the terminal building. Upon entering the terminal, clear signage is available for the direction to arrival, transfer and baggage claim.

The arrival hall of KLIA2 is located at Level 2. The walk way is equipped with hi-tech interactive floor plan to let travellers find out where they are in the terminal building and find information on the outlets and amenities around them. This floor plan may look like a glass panel at a first glance. Try touch the screen and you will realize that it is actually a giant touch screen monitor.

  2. My experience arriving at KLIA2 is a long walk to the arrival hall. With lots of restaurants yes, but those are on the other side of the glass wall so you cannot enter them. I think it's a kind of claustrofobic walk from the gate to the arrival hall.
