World's Best Airport for three years running and Green Globe Certified for four consecutive years - As KLIA troops into its eleventh year of operations, the challenges we face are different, but so are the rewards. The key to a successful airport business is always evolving with the times and maturing phase by phase.

KL International Airport (KLIA), the international gateway to Malaysia is located in Sepang, 50 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur. Built on 10,000 hectares of land; it was officially launched on June 27th, 1998. This environmentally friendly airport, the first in the Asia Pacific region, was completed in four and a half years, making it the fastest airport ever built. Designed by renowned Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa, KLIA is a spectacular feat of construction, combining futuristic technology, Malaysian culture and the rich, tropical splendor of its natural resources.
