KLIA-klia2 Railway Line

Key info:

Length: 2.2km

Cost: about RM100m

Work on the extension started in July 2011

The railway line extension will increase ridership by 40% to 7.4m passengers when klia2 opens

YTL is talking to Spanish and Chinese train manufacturers to buy up to 4 train sets, comprising 4 coaches each, for RM150m to serve klia2

The existing railway line from KL Sentral to KLIA is served by 12 electric high-seed trains.

The trains were acquired from German-based Siemens AG

Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd has a 30 year concession to operate the KLIA Express and KLIA Transit trains between KL Sentral and KLIA
