Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Friday, 25 April 2014

The AirAsia Group will move all of its operations from the current LCC Terminal (LCCT) in Sepang (Kuala Lumpur) to the new klia2 on Friday, 9th May 2014.

All scheduled departures from the LCCT on Thursday, 8th May 2014 will operate as per normal, and all passengers with bookings departing Kuala Lumpur on that day are advised to still go to the LCCT to board their flights.

All AirAsia X (D7) flights will still be departing from and arriving at LCCT on 8th May 2014, including these flights departing early morning of 9th May 2014:

D7 236 to Perth - Departure time: 0005 (12:05 AM)
D7 532 to Osaka Departure time: 0100 (1:00 AM)
D7 512 to Busan Departure time 0115 (1:15AM)
D7 170 to Jeddah Departure time 0235 (2:35AM)

However, there are quite a number of AirAsia (AK) flights which will be arriving at the new klia2 directly on 8 May (or very early morning of 9 May) instead of the LCCT. These are:

AirAsia has said that all affected passengers will be informed via email and SMS about this change of airport and can contact the airline if they have any further questions.

With a larger build-up area, AirAsia baggage-drop counters will be open 3 hours (180mins) before scheduled departure time, and will close 1 hour (60mins) before scheduled departure time for both international and domestic flights.

All immigration and security counters will still be operational in the current LCCT from 2nd 8th May 2014, therefore travellers need not worry about any inconvenience while going through the LCCT during the transition period.
