1 May 2018: Travel to Subang Airport via rail on the new SkyPark Link
Travelling between KL’s airports just became that much easier with the official launch of the SkyPark Link – a KTM rail link that connects KL Sentral with the Subang Skypark (Subang Airport). This marks the first time that all of KL’s airports, including KLIA and klia2, are linked by rail.

Having commenced operations on 1 May, the service will get passengers to Subang Skypark in around 28 minutes, with one stop at Subang Jaya on the way. Future stations will include Glenmarie and Sri Subang. After alighting, passengers can take a 300 metre covered walkway that leads inside the terminal.
Trains start running daily at 5.30am from KL Sentral, with the last train departing at 9:25pm. Meanwhile from Subang Skypark, trains start as early as 7:50am, and the last train at 11.20pm. Currently trains are departing every 60-180 minutes, however from 1 June the service will switch to hourly intervals.
The standard blue and yellow associated with KTM Komuter services has been switched out for grey and orange, and each of the four trains currently operating on the Electrified Double Tracking can accommodate up to 300 passengers at once. Free for the month of May, fares for the service have not yet been revealed.
Initiated in 2013, the RM521 million project is part of the Greater KL/Klang Valley Integrated Transit System, which also includes existing KTM, LRT, bus rapid transit and airport links.
