Viewing gallery @ KLIA

Catching a flight or waiting for someone? No.

Two weeks back, I had a random photo shoot at KLIA. To be exact, it is Viewing Gallery of Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

This is my first visit to the Viewing Gallery.

It was a breezy Sunday morning, with drizzle.

While passing through the walkway to Viewing Galley, this is what KLIA have at both left and right. Basically, it is the Contact Pier of International Level (Level 4)

#4 Contact Pier

#5 Some miniature air plane models 

#6 Some shopping to be done at Contact Pier

#7 Duty free shop

And here we go, the Viewing Gallery.

Chairs or benches are placed at all over the place. People can always sit and enjoy stunning views of the Satellite Building and the routes of the aerotrain, including all the movements and activities taking place at the apron.

This Aerotrain transports passengers between the two terminals. The ride between the Main Terminal Building and Satellite Terminal A takes an estimated 5 minutes.

#15 Sunrise at KLIA 

Most of planes here are belong to Malaysia Airlines as the Contact Pier is only for domestic and some MAS international flights only. The other jumbo jets like Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Emirates Airline are at the other end, Satellite Building.

There is limitation of Viewing Gallery, thus we can't have scenery of Satellite Building. Perhaps, the next time I go for international flight, I can capture more photos.

That concludes my short visit to KLIA. Maybe, I should ask the operator of KLIA to give me a chance to do a review for them. lol

Do drop by if you have time or while waiting for check-in. It's located at Departure Hall, Level 5 (nearby KFC).
