From the airport to the city
You can reach the city center for about 12€ (Oneway) in 28 minutes with the KLIA Ekspres express train. A taxi will cost you between 16€ and 22€ – so if you’re traveling with two or more persons this alternative is worth it! Bus transfers are available from 2,50€ per route, but they are time-consuming and comparatively complicated to overlook.
