Malaysia Airlines Check In Services at KL Sentral
Let us share another great travel tips based on our experience. What is the fastest way to get to KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) from Kuala Lumpur and how to skip the queue in the airport? Wait, is that even possible? The answer is simple, take the KLIA Ekspres from KL Sentral and you can check in with your luggage if you are flying with Malaysia Airlines, Royal Brunei or Emirates.
We all know KLIA Ekspres raised their fares to RM 55 (one way) but they are still the fastest option to travel to KLIA or KLIA2 from the city. If you are running late to the airport, KLIA Ekspres is the best bet especially during peak hours as even the fastest car will still get stuck in the traffic jam in the city. On top of that, you can also check in to your flight and drop your luggage in KLIA Sentral (for Malaysia Airlines, Royal Brunei or Emirates only). However, you need to purchase the KLIA Ekspres train ticket to use this dedicated services. Please take note that KLIA Ekspres takes 28 minutes from KL Sentral to KLIA and the train leaves every 15 minute intervals.
So for my recent trip to Darwin (with Malaysia Airlines), I took the KLIA Ekspres as it is cheaper than taxi or Grab or Uber and faster too. To make things convenient for me, I checked in at KL Sentral and drop my luggage and took the train to KLIA and went in without queuing up in the airport. I saved at least 20 to 30 min of time by skipping the queue and with that I can take my own sweet time going through the immigration and customs with running like a headless chicken. The checked in luggage will send to the plane directly in case you are wondering.
This travel tip is a life saver when you are getting late for your flight (for Malaysia Airlines, Royal Brunei or Emirates only). This is the fastest, cheapest (for one pax) and most convenient way to check in into your flight (for Malaysia Airlines, Royal Brunei or Emirates only) and to KLIA and KLIA2.
