Flying Low Cost From KLIA


Flying low cost in Malaysia usually means having to endure some slight discomfort while waiting for departure at the LCCT. However, plans are underway to construct a new mega low cost terminal (KLIA 2) that will make the current one look like a Tesco hypermart.

Once completed in 2012, the terminal will look something like these graphical renditions....damn cun I tell you!

But meanwhile, budget travelers are still going to end up stuck inside the factory-like environment of the LCCT. That is, if you insist on choosing Air Asia...

For our most recent trip to flood prone Singapore, we chose to fly with JetStar instead (my apologies Datuk Tony) because their fares were the cheapest around (when compared with both Air Asia & Tiger Airways). The best thing about them is that, we get to depart from KLIA.

So instead of dreary surroundings, we got shiny marble floors & carpeted waiting areas. There is also a Jungle Boardwalk that will let foreign tourists & city folks like me, experience being in the heart of a tropical rainforest.

Rainforest inside an airport. Or is it the other way round?

This almost made me forget I had a plane to catch

Are we really that near to the Equator?


Last but not least, a skybridge to our plane ;)

Your first two photos with minor post-process look good, wondering why you not apply the same post-process to the rest.

Sorry to disappoint you, but the 1st two photos were taken from the internet. While the rest, not so good ones were all shot by me...LOL
