Malaysia Airlines brings you very comfortable to various destinations in Malaysia and in the South-East Asia. You can read about this company on
another page on this website <click>.
But there are inside Malaysia other airlines active, like Air Asia,
Berjaya Air. Air Asia is the second largest airline in Malaysia. It doesn't have so much
planes as Malaysia Airlines has, but it's very aggressive with its fares! And that is what we like, as consumers. We could say that Air Asia is the
Ryan Air or Easy Jet of Malaysia. Air Asia still grows and grows.
Looking for a hotel on the 19th of March in KL and save up to 75% OFF normal room rates.
Who doesn't want that???
They fly all over the peninsular and even they fly to Sabah and Sarawak on
Borneo. They even fly in South East Asia.
Air Asia departs from the LCCT of the International Airport, but they have a different terminal than
Malaysia Airlines. LCCT is the low cost terminal for Budget Airlines. You can reach the terminal by coach, taxi or
train. The LCC Terminal is located about 20 KM from the KLIA Main Terminal Building (MTB).
A bus at the MTB takes 20 minutes to reach the LCCT.
In Kuala Lumpur buses are waiting for you at KLSentral to bring you to the LCCT.
To make it easy for us, tourists, I've added a pricelist below of Air Asia and all the destinations, where they are flying to.
The pricelist is not up-to-date, but you have an example.
In the meantime Malaysia Airlines worries for their domestic flights and sometimes
they want to compete with Air Asia on some stretches. That's why they have
now Firefly, which is 100% owned by Malaysia Airlines.
Maybe they have found the answers with Firefly.
But..... Air Asia is growing and growing and they also stunt with their fares to several destinations. You can have a look at the legroom
of all the airplanes flying in and to Malaysia <click>.
If you’re an experienced business
traveller, the last thing you want to hear after cramming yourself into a small seat on an overnight flight is a child’s screaming. Now one more
airline has officially launched a solution for those who want to stay away from kids on flights.
Air Asia X, the long-haul branch of budget carrier Air Asia, is offering a child-free seating zone on some of its
flights. Beginning this week, kids younger than 12 are “strictly off-limits” in the first seven rows of the economy class on the
company’s flights to China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Australia and Nepal.
Air Asia isn’t the first airline to institute an adults-only section on its flights; competitor Malaysia Airlines announced in April 2012 that it would ban all under-12s from the upper-level economy deck in its Airbus A380-800 on the Kuala Lumpur-to-London route.
Malaysia Airlines has launched a new endeavour. When the airline’s first Airbus A380 takes off on July 1,
2012 from Kuala Lumpur to London, it featured an upper-level economy deck with one major caveat: no kids allowed.
This is the list of current and confirmed prospective destinations that AirAsia and its subsidiaries
Indonesia AirAsia, Thai AirAsia, AirAsia Philippines, AirAsia X, and AirAsia Japan
are flying to:
Abu Dhabi, Alor Setar, Balikpapan, Banda Aceh, Bandar Seri Begawan, Bandung, Bangalore, Bangkok, Bangkok, Batam, Beijing,

Passengers, travelling to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (have a look at the special site of
KLIA site<cllik>) for departure with Air Asia, can opt for the special new non-stop, high-speed
train between the KLIA (the National Airport of Malaysia) and Kuala Lumpur Sentral.
The station in KL is close to the center and de business district of the capital.
The very comfortable KLIA Ekspress departs every 15 minutes between 05.00
hours in the morning and 01.00 hour at night, seven days a week. In only 28 minutes the train will bring you to your destination. In the future the
frequency will raised to a departure of the trains in every 10 minutes. A ticket for adults will cost you 35 RM, or € 9,00 for a one
way trip. It's a good alternative for the expensive taxi. Tickets can be sold and different counters in the arrival hall. Also are
there several hotels, where you can buy a ticket for KLIA. You can also buy your ticket by credit card.
