KL City Air Terminal (KLCAT) @ KL Sentral Station
Designed as an "airport in the city", the Kuala Lumpur City Air Terminal (KLCAT) is an extension of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), and recognized by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) as a city destination with the Global Destination Code of XKL. It is conveniently located inside KL Sentral Station, Malaysia’s largest and state-of-the-art transportation hub, which offers direct access to six rail systems and links to major highways.
KLCAT and KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) are connected via KLIA Ekspres, a non-stop high-speed train service.
