Kuala Lumpur (KULM) to Singapore Changi (SIN)
Kuala Lumpur to Singapore Changi International Airport
There are many flight options available for those wishing to travel from Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, to Changi International Airport in Singapore. The city of Kuala Lumpur is served by two airports.
The first is Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), and the second is Subang SkyPark Airport, which handles only domestic flights and privately chartered flights. Subang SkyPark Airport also serves as the hub for Berjaya Air, Malindo Air, and Firefly. KLIA is the primary airport for Kuala Lumpur, and consists of two major terminals.
Terminal 1 is the International Terminal which handles major international airlines and flights, while Terminal 2, which is known as KLIA2, deals primarily with budget airlines and regional flights. Passengers travelling to Singapore Changi Airport from Kuala Lumpur will fly out from KLIA.
However, whether your flight departs from KLIA1 or KLIA2 depends on the airline you are flying. Due to its close proximity, it is extremely easy to find a direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore Changi Airport on airlines such as AirAsia, Jetstar, Tiger Airways, SilkAir, and Malaysia Airlines, which depart from KLIA2.
KLIA2 is the new terminal which was opened in 2014 to replace the old Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT). Most flights to Singapore operate from this terminal, which is connected to the main international terminal (KLIA1) via a train network. This train network is also linked to the city centre, and travellers can conveniently board a train to and from the airport.
Travelling from the city centre takes approximately 30-45 minutes, and passengers are advised to check-in at least 90 minutes before departure. Both KLIA terminals are modern, spacious, and provide travellers with many amenities, including several dining options, money changers, and duty-free shopping.
Most flights from KLIA land at Terminal 1 or 2 of Singapore Changi Airport. Changi Airport has won numerous airport awards and is known for its cleanliness, airport facilities, and world-class customer service. The airport premises actually consist of three terminals that are conveniently connected by a Sky Train shuttle service.
The Sky Train is free and will transport you between terminals within minutes. Each of the airport terminals has numerous options for dining and shopping, however, Terminal 3 offers the most variety. For Hong Kong residents entering Singapore, a visa is required. Applications can be made through Authorised Visa Agents (http://www.mfa.gov.sg/content/mfa/overseasmission/hong_kong/visa_information/list_of_authorised_visa_agents.html).
Citizens of other countries can also check the Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs website for information on visa requirements (http://www.mfa.gov.sg/content/mfa/overseasmission/hong_kong/visa_information/overview.html). Do note that Singapore does not issue visas on arrival. Applications for visas can alternatively be made through the Immigrations and Checkpoints Authority’s website (http://www.ica.gov.sg/services_centre_overview.aspx?pageid=252&secid=165).
