Kuala Lumpur’s reputation as a focal point for the Asia-Pacific economy is well earned. This shining, modern city is attracting finance and investment from all over the world, and is a hive of innovation and activity, particularly among the high-tech industries. Malaysia is also a fascinating country for those who simply want to explore a rich and ancient culture for themselves.
Opened in 1981, the King Abdulaziz International Airport welcomes not only travellers from around the world, but pilgrims on the Hajj to Mecca too. Its huge complex covers over 100 square kilometres, and is one of the biggest air transport hubs in the Middle East.
Transportation and parking
Because of the sheer size of the airport and the distance between the north and south terminals, taxis provide the main means of transportation in and around the airport.
During the Hajj period, the volume of passengers increases significantly, so if you are flying from Jeddah with Qatar Airways during this period it is probably best to book a taxi or limousine in advance. Regular buses from the city and other locations run regularly to the airport. There is ample parking available close to the North Terminal.
Arriving at King Abdulaziz International Airport
There are two main passenger terminals, as well as the iconic, tented structure of the Hajj Terminal, which is reserved exclusively for pilgrims on the Hajj.
Flights from Jeddah with Qatar Airways leave from the North Terminal (along with most other international flights). Be aware that the two terminals are nearly 8 kilometres apart, and the only way to get from one to the other is by airport taxi.
Facilities and amenities
As King Abdulaziz International Airport is in the middle of an extensive development program, current facilities may be a little limited.
However, the new developments will bring in everything from a purpose-built food hall and mall with exclusive brand shopping available, as well as a large mosque, lounges and wellness areas for passengers.
Flights to Kuala Lumpur with Qatar Airways transport you effortlessly to one of the most exciting modern destinations in the Far East. This cosmopolitan city is making a name for itself as a location for both travellers who like a little luxury, and more adventurous explorers looking for an interesting destination.
Modern fuses effortlessly with ancient in Kuala Lumpur; you can see the city’s skyline, dominated by the Petronas Towers, surrounded by tranquil statues of Buddha.
At the top of the list of places to see for most visitors to Kuala Lumpur is the astonishing Petronas Towers. These twin skyscrapers are still among the tallest buildings in the world, and offer those who have a head for heights an incredible view of Kuala Lumpur, from both the 86th floor and the sky bridge on the 41st floor.
It is also possible to discover a few more natural attractions too. Aquaria KLCC features a large aquarium and underwater walkway, where visitors can quite literally immerse themselves in an underwater world.
The KL Bird Park is home to more than 200 species of birds from around Asia. Near Merdeka Square is Masjid Jamek, a charming Moorish-style mosque, while the Lake Gardens offer a respite from the frenetic pace of city life.
