AirAsia, AirAsia X to begin operations at KLIA2 on May 9


KUALA LUMPUR: The AirAsia Group will move all of its operations to the highly-anticipated KLIA2 on Friday, May 9.

All scheduled departures from the LCC Terminal (LCCT) on May 8 will operate as normal, AirAsia said in a statement.

Guests with bookings departing Kuala Lumpur on that day are advised to still go to the LCCT to board their flights.

All AirAsia X (D7) flights will still be departing from and arriving at LCCT on May 8, including flights departing on May 9 to Perth, Osaka, Busan and Jeddah at 12.05 am, 1am, 1.15am and 2.35 am respectively.

However, a number of AirAsia (AK) flights will be arriving at the new KLIA2 directly on May 8, instead of the LCCT.

Domestic flights arriving at KLIA2 on May 8 include those departing from Kuala Terengganu, Kota Baharu, Tawau, Bintulu, Alor Setar, Johor Baharu, Sibu, Miri, Langkawi, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching and Penang.

International flights arriving at KLIA2 on May 8 include those departing from Macau, Nanning, Kunming, Lombok, Ho Chi Minh City, Phuket, Bali, Shenzhen, Yangon, Guangzhou, Medan, Trichy, Kochi, Kolkata and Chennai.

With a larger built-up area and a brand new experience, AirAsia baggage-drop counters will be open three hours before scheduled departure time, and will close an hour before scheduled
departure time for both international and domestic flights to ensure that all guests have ample time to familiarise themselves with the new environment and get to their departure gates on time.

AirAsia strongly encourages all guests to conduct self check-in via web or mobile before arriving at the airport.

As all immigration and security counters will still be operational at the current LCCT on
May 2–8, travellers need not worry about any inconvenience while going through the LCCT during the transition period. — Bernama
