Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Getting In


Subang Airport

Subang Skypark (officially Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport) is more commonly referred as Subang Airport. The airport was the country's main international airport until KLIA was opened in 1998. As it is much nearer to the city centre and less crowded than the newer KLIA, it can make a convenient entry point for those flying from Singapore or other parts of Malaysia. After the opening of KLIA, Subang Airport was designated for turboprop aircraft and is currently served by two airlines i.e. Firefly and Berjaya Air.
