There are around 20 direct flights going from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Langkawi International Airport every day.

Two major airlines – Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia – handle the flights, which make it easier to manage seat reservations and other concerns.

Terminal Information

At the day of the flight, make sure you have checked Kuala Lumpur International Airport’s terminal and which level you will be boarding from. You will likely go up the 5th level of the Main Terminal, though, as this is where the domestic departures are managed. On this floor are check-in counters, as well as sales counters for AirAsia and Firefly and ticket desks for MAS, Malindo, and Emirates. After checking in, you will see various ATMs and other facilities, from a Post Office to the Royal Malaysian Customs. Shops offering various goods, food stalls, and fastfood restaurants are also here, where you can buy some necessities and treats before boarding the plane.

When you arrive at Langkawi Airport, you can go to the airport taxi counters located at the baggage claim area and terminal exit. One-way taxi fares from the airport are fixed, so be sure to refer to the list indicated on the website or enquire at the desk about the full amount to be paid for the transportation service. You may purchase a coupon at the taxi counter after confirming the price, and then proceed to the taxi stand outside the terminal.

Car rental services are served by five companies namely, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, and Sixt. You will need to call ahead to determine all the documentary requirements. Make sure you have everything they ask, so you will have a smooth transaction.

Practical Information

A valid passport and other travel documents are needed to get permission from the local authorities to enter Malaysia. If you do not have a passport, you must obtain a document in lieu of one at any Malaysian Representative Office. There may also be other papers to be submitted, so make sure you have all of them before leaving for Kuala Lumpur. A visa might also be asked for in Immigration. You might need to apply for one, especially if you are planning to stay in Langawi and more than a month.
