KL Sentral - KLIA Express Rail Link


Pos Malaysia issued in Apr 2002 a set of 3 stamps on Kuala Lumpur Sentral Station and KLIA Express Rail Link (se-tenant design).

The blueprint of KL Sentral began with the masterplan of a City-within-a-City concept designed by renowned architect Dr. Kisho Kurokawa.

Located at the fringes of the city's central business district, it offers a sophisticated rail network system with links to air and land transportation. It is where the KTM Intercity and Komuter services, Express Rail Link (ERL) KLIA Express and KLIA Transit, Putra Light Rail Transit (LRT) as well as KL Monorail systems converge.

This teeming network is surrounded by commercial development that includes high rise buildings, hotels, urban residential areas and a shopping mall.

The Kuala Lumpur City Air Terminal (KL CAT), officially recognised as a city destination by International Air Travel Association (IATA) with its XKL code for transfers and baggage, is supported by an integrated express rail transit system - KLIA Express and KLIA Transit.

Travellers who check-in at KL Sentral and with a valid KLIA Express ticket would be issued a flight boarding pass and luggage claim tag upon checking-in 2 hours before flight departure.
