For air travelers, this may be the last sign that the pandemic is over. No, we are not talking about meeting a large number of tourists from China, but about the resumption of KLIA Ekspres.
Yes, the non-stop service from KL Sentral to KLIA and KLIA2 is now back as a dedicated service, which means we once again have KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit services. Over the course of the pandemic, the train from the city to the airport switched between beingor running like a due to lockdowns and lower demand.
The reactivated KLIA Ekspres will run every 20 minutes during morning and afternoon peak hours. KLIA Transit’s frequency will also be revised to run every 15 minutes during peak hours on weekdays, with peak hours extended to 8pm (from 7pm) for the convenience of commuters.
At its peak, there will be a total of seven train services every hour. Both the KLIA Ekspres and Transit services will operate at 30-minute intervals during off-peak periods. At KL Sentral, the departure point of the KLIA Ekspres train will return to its original departure platform. The journey takes 28 minutes or 33 minutes to/from KLIA2. Welcome back, old friend.
