When I was check-in my luggage at Mumbai international airport I requested ground handling staff to check-in my luggage for Manila flight too and they agreed.

Yes. It will take less than 1 hour, by train, to get from city center to KUL. That leaves you with three hours which is more than adequate for an international flight. The biggest concern will be the time it takes to get to from your meeting to the train station. Another thing you should consider is how your luggage will encumber you.

Update: I took the Star Shuttle from Kotaraya in Chinatown. It currently does not actually stop at the Kotaraya "stop" and there are currently no signs or ticket sellers there that I could see. The bus arrives from around behind the Mydin store and drives slowly through the station without stopping. The first time I went there just to check on this bus, ...

You will have to pass through immigration to get from KLIA (where Terminal M is) to KLIA2 (the low cost carrier terminal aka LCCT). Furthermore, you will have to take a very short train ride (or taxi ride) to get from KLIA to KLIA2. You will pass through immigration after Terminal M. KLIA and KLIA2 are not connected terminals. They are two separate terminals ...

4.05 am ? Lucky to you - Starbucks in LCCT closes at midnight and opens at 4 am. As alternative, most fast food outlets (KFC, Mc Donalds ,etc ) are open 24 hours in LCCT. LCCT also provides 3 hours of free Wi-Fi. So you can kill your time by accessing internet. UPDATE : after did a pre-caution check, found that Starbucks in LCCT opens for 24hours.

No, there are no surprise fees. Not sure how I'm supposed to prove a negative here, but there haven't been any in KL in the ~15 years I've been flying in and there weren't any when my partner visited last month.

In your case, you don't need to clear immigration at KLIA2. I have done this several times, not to India but other countries where I do not need a visa. If your KUL-HYD boarding pass does not need Document Check then you are good to go. Just follow the transit direction, clear security and make your way to the departure gate. Hope this help.

Yes, when changing between an international and a domestic flight, passport control will take place at the connection airport, in this case KUL. Luggage will be checked through, however, except in a few countries (not including Malaysia AFAIK)

I don't know when was the last time you flew, but airport taxes and fees have been included in the fare for quite a few many years now. You will need Ringgit if you: a. Plan on doing any shopping; since you will be getting change in Ringgit and horrible rates at the vendors for your foreign currency, it is best to use any local currency that you have. b. ...

How can I get my checked in baggage at B (Kuala Lumpur)? Your first flight from Manila to Kuala Lumpur is through Air Asia which lands at KLIA2. Your second flight from Kuala Lumpur to Kathmandu is through Malindo Air which departs from Main Klia (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) which is a separate terminal and you definitely need to clear customs and ...

The cost is 2 Malaysian Ringits to get between terminals (source). Unfortunately, you can't buy the transfer tickets on their website, like the other journeys, you have to buy at the counter. If you have some left over Singapore money, you could go to a money exchange place and swap it (presumably there's a minimum), and use the remainder to buy a nasi ...

If both your flights are on Malaysia Airlines, you do not need to pass through Immigration, just board your next flight.

I got the Transit pass without any fuss. All i need to do was produce my resident card/ visitor visa, boarding pass to Tokyo and a form given by the Transit pass office. I was given transit pass for five days. No package tour nothing was asked. The website is so confusing. You just need to have transit for more than 5-6 hours and travel by AirAsia or ...

Use a credit card: there's no minimum, so yes, you can pay for that RM2 fare with your MasterCard. Cityliner also runs KLIA<->KLIA2 buses for RM1.50 a pop,and they might accept Singapore dollars at a 1:1 exchange rate; normally quite a bad deal, but if you don't have any use for your leftover S$, it's essentially "free".

Since Emirates and Air Asia uses separate terminals at KLIA, you will be required to pass through Malaysian Immigration, and Timatic states: Malaysia (MY) Passport required. - Passport and/or passport replacing travel documents must be valid at least six months on date of arrival. So yes, I would recommend you renew your passport first if at all ...

No you cannot. While you are not supposed to use the KUL-MNL portion, you can get away with it and even ask for reimbursement of your unused portion. However, missing the KUL-MNL port will have the last portion voided as the airline will assume you missed the flight and cancel the remaining ticket.

Air Asia and Malindo Air do not have an interlining agreement, so its probable that you may have to go to the baggage hall in Kuala Lumpur, collect your baggage and recheck it. The following advice is available on the KLIA airport website: Kindly proceed through the Arrival Immigration check-point, collect your luggage (if any) and clear through Customs ...

There's a Plaza Premium Lounge in the LCIA terminal at KLIA. It's not quite as nice as the one in the main terminal, but I'm told it's not too bad. They have showers there, so you can freshen up between the flights. There's free Wi-Fi, drinks, a buffet with food, nice seats, and it's open 24 hours. If you have a high-end credit card, you may get free access ...

Your doctor is correct that it is not a good idea (in terms of hassle). However if you are only flying through TPE and not clearing immigration there, you will not go through the customs there. Thus so there will be no customs officers to look into your carry-on bags. In KUL you would go through customs. All luggage and carry-on is screened there through ...

Yes: KL to Penang is a domestic flight, so you will have clear Malaysian immigration in KL, pick up your bags, take them through Customs, and check in for your connecting flight. You should allow at least 2 hours for this, more if you have separate tickets. Note that "Terminal M" simply means the main terminal (KLIA1). Odds are pretty high you'll land in ...

You can transit KL without a visa if you fly on a single booking with Malaysia Airlines. You will be required to remain in the international transit area in the main terminal, unless you also have a valid visa issued by Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Taiwan, or the USA. In this case, when your layover time is longer than 8 hours and you are ...

So your question is a bit vague, but I know where I would go if I landed in KL on December 30th and didn't want to tackle the Muddy Confluence yet -- I'd go to Putrajaya, Malaysia's bizarre Pyongyang-meets-Dubai-meets-Las Vegas capital-to-be, halfway down the train line from KLIA to KL. (pictures by me, c. 2006) More specifically, I would stay at the ...
