Airport taxi from KLIA to KLCC

When you arrive at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) you have a few options to get to Kuala Lumpur City Center (KLCC). The popular KLIA Express takes you to KL Sentral (Kuala Lumpur central train station) in 28 minutes. From KLIA it is quite easy to catch the KLIA Express train, but once arrived at KL Sentral you have to walk to the taxi counter and get a (fixed price) taxi to KLCC. Some travelers may find this to be a bit of a hassle, and opt for the more direct solution; the airport taxi from KLIA to KLCC.

Airport Limo is the taxi service that operates from KLIA (Arrival Level). The big Airport Limo taxi counter is easily recognizable.
