Terminal M and LCC -- same airport?

Hi

We're flying into KUL (Kuala Lumpur International) Terminal M with Air Malaysia, and then catching a connecting flight to Krabi, Thailand with Air Asia from what they describe as LCC.

Can someone clarify for us whether Terminal M and LCC are two terminals within the same airport, rather than different airports, as we are assuming; and if so, how lengthy the transit between Terminal M and LCC is?

Thanks very much,

Kess

Hi

Its a bit more confusing! But is easy to understand.

There are 2 terminals at KUL. KLIA and LCCT - they both share the same airport code of KUL. They are 20mins by road either by taxi or bus. Its a very similar set up if you were to fly in to LHR Terminal 1 and then out of LHR Terminal 5.

LCCT is the low cost carrier terminal, and the main terminal for all Air Asia flights.

KLIA is more complex. Whilst there is only 1 place to check in or collect your bags, there are actually 2 terminals once you are 'airside'. The Domestic or Main terminal is where you check in or clear customs. The satelite or international terminal can only be accessed via the domestic terminal using the aerotrain.

I would think you are arriving into KLIA, then will need to disembark at the satelite terminal, transit clear immigration, collect bags and finally clear customs. This takes about 30mins. At which point you will be ready to leave KLIA. You will then need to transit over to LCCT, which takes 20mins. You will need to arrive at LCCT 2 hours before your flight to KBV departs.

Have a great time.
