Passengers who are on transit at KLIA will have the chance to experience Kuala Lumpur despite their short stay.
Now, those who are on transit for at least four hours will able to take a quick tour of the city as part of many ongoing efforts by KLIA and its partners to attract more tourists and visitors to the country.
Under the Discover Kuala Lumpur programme, visitors will be whisked away on the high-speed KLIA express train to KL Sentral before they visit the many interesting places within the city. There is also a special package to Menara KL, which includes a guided tour, nature walks and meals.
Tourism Malaysia director-general Datuk Mirza Mohammad Taiyab described the programme as a positive way of getting visitors on transit to experience the sights and sounds of Kuala Lumpur.
“No matter how much has been explained to tourists abroad about Malaysia, particularly what Kuala Lumpur is and has to offer, the metropolis never ceases to amaze visitors.
“Tourists still get pleasantly surprised by how beautiful Kuala Lumpur is. Getting visitors on transit to sample a small part of what the city has to offer promises great returns as I am confident tourists will want to return for more,” he said at the launching of Discover Kuala Lumpur at KLIA yesterday.
Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad senior general manager (operations) Datuk Azmi Murad said the service would be tapping a new market segment and further enhance the facilities offered at KLIA.
