Malaysia Transportation

Getting there

By Plane
Most international flights land at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), (AirAsia flights now land at the new LCC terminal situated 20km from KLIA) although some flights also go to Penang, Langkawi, Johor Bahru, Kuching, Kota Kinabalu and Malacca. KLIA's predecessor, the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang near Kuala Lumpur handles chartered and turboprop aircraft.
National carrier Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has an extensive worldwide network coverage and regularly ranks high in airline quality assessments, while no-frill low-cost carrier AirAsia now covers an ever-expanding set of neighboring destinations like Cambodia, Indonesia, Macau, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.

Getting around

By plane
Largely thanks to budget carrier Air Asia, Malaysia is crisscrossed by a web of affordable flights with advertised "promotional" prices starting at RM9 for flights booked well in advance. Flying is the only practical option for traveling between peninsular Malaysia and Borneo, as well as reaching some of the more remote outposts of Borneo. Fly Asian Xpress (FAX), formerly MAS Rural Air Service, operates turboprop services in Sarawak and Sabah.
Berjaya Air also flies small Dash-7 turboprops from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore to its own airports on the resort islands of Pangkor, Redang and Tioman. Prices are steep (from RM214 plus fees one way), but this is by far the fastest and more comfortable way of reaching any of these.
