Travel to Malaysia
Travelling to Malaysia by air is easy. Most major international airlines have direct flights to Kuala Lumpur International Airport, KLIA, at Sepang. Should your international carrier not have a direct flight into KLIA then alternatives through Singapore’s Changi Airport can be arranged with connecting flights from Changi to various Malaysian airports being frequent. A high speed train connects the airport to the centre of Kuala Lumpur.
Malaysia’s national air carrier is Malaysian Airlines. There are a number of low cost carriers which also service interntional and domestic routes. The main ones are AirAsia, AirAsiaX, Firefly and Tiger Air.
Bahasa Malaysia is the national language but English is widely spoken.
