Subang Airport (IATA: SZB; ICAO: WMSA), officially Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, is located at Subang, a suburban town just south of Kuala Lumpur. It was formerly the nation's gateway until the current Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang opened in 1998. Subang Airport currently serves general aviation and turboprop flights of mainly domestic destinations.

Getting there and away

The airport is situated about 25 kilometres by road from the city centre.

By Taxi
The quickest and most convenient way to get from the airport to the city centre is by taxi. Taxis from the airport use the coupon system at the rate of RM36 to anywhere in the city. For taxis to the airport, expect to pay no more than that rate under normal traffic conditions.

By Bus
RapidKL Bus Route U81 travels every 20 to 30 minutes from the airport (Zone 4) and terminates at Central Market (Malay: Pasar Seni) (Zone 1), near Chinatown, in the city centre. It also stops at KL Sentral (Zone 2) for those who want to continue their journey via the train, metro or monorail services.

The bus fares are based on zones travelled. For a single journey to or from the airport, the fares are:

  • RM3.00 for travel in Zones 1–4 (Subang Airport – Central Market)
  • RM2.50 for travel in Zones 2–4 (Subang Airport – KL Sentral)

By Car
The airport is accessible from the Federal Highway (Route 1) [1], and also the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) which is part of the North-South Expressway [E1].

Depending on traffic condition, the travel time between the city and the airport can be as fast as 20 minutes, with an average of around 30 minutes to the city centre. If it rains, be prepared for double or even triple the regular travel time.
