Der Flughafen von Langkawi ist ein kleiner typischer Touristenairport. Die Wege sind kurz und die Warteschlangen, zu mindestens am heutigen Samstag, auch nicht lang. Der Check In bei Malaysia Airlines verlief schnell und unkompliziert. Neben Malaysia Airlines fliegen diesen Vormittag noch AirAsia, Malindo und Silk Air. Allein 6 -7 Maschinen fliegen am Samstag Vormittag nach Kuala Lumpur.

At Departure Gate 3 we had to wait a short time for boarding at 11:30 a.m. A Malaysian state machine, an old Boeing 737, had to land. A carpet, not red but yellow, was rolled out and a bunch of suit-wearing personalities got out. When the team on the stairs got nervous and stood guard, the Malaysian king came off the plane. He went to a neighboring VIP terminal and a short time later a motorcade with police and around 15 vehicles drove off.

Flight MH 1433 to Kuala Lumpur

Our machine wasn't even half full. This may be due to the fact that there are seven more flights to Kuala Lumpur in the morning alone.

We sat in seats 25E and F. At 11:43 a.m., seven minutes before departure, the pilot ordered the pushback to be carried out. After the security video on the monitors, which, by the way, could be cleaned of dust again, a traveling prayer "In the name of Allah..." was displayed for several seconds. The start was at 11:50 am heading west. So we had another great view of Langkawi and our two hotels at the curve over the Andaman Sea The Danna and Succeeded.

The inflight service consisted of a bag of peanuts and a choice of apple or orange juice. Thanks to our low cruising altitude and mostly clear skies, we had a good view of mainland Malaysia.

The captain began the descent at 12:15 p.m. On the landing approach, parallel to Kuala Lumpur International Airport, we had a great view of the Sepang Formula 1 circuit. We finally landed at 12:40 p.m. and arrived at gate A2R after a short taxi ride.

We took the KLIA Express non-stop to Kuala Lumpur for MYR 35 per person. The cheaper alternative would be an AirAsia bus for 9 MYR. But it takes more than an hour to travel the 70 kilometers to KL Sentral. The express train takes just 28 minutes and there is wifi on board. But this has occasional disconnections.
