After long delays the first phase of the Skypark Link has opened today in Kuala Lumpur.
Thanks to the new line both Kuala Lumpur Airports, Kuala Lumpur International Airport and Subang Airport, are now reachable via trains and, coincidentally, both airports are just 28 minutes away from KL Sentral station.
The new 24 km line shares most of its track with KTM’s Port Klang Line and stops only at Subang Jaya along the way. On phase 2 two more stations will be added to the line: Glenmarie and Sri Subang station.
Subang Airport hopes that the new convenient and cost-effective line will attract many more visitors to the airport, with a goal of catering five million passengers by 2020.
For the first month there will be free rides and a frequency of one train per hour. The final proposed operating frequency is 15 minutes during peak hours and 30 minutes off peak.
