Tickets bought before June 1, 2024, won’t have these new charges, even if you’re traveling after that date.

  • For domestic flights (within Malaysia), it’ll cost RM7 to transfer at most airports. If you’re transferring at Senai International Airport, the fee is RM10.
  • For international flights, if you’re transferring at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 1 (KLIA1), you’ll be charged RM42. At KLIA2 and other airports, the fee for international transfers is RM29.

The departure charge on domestic flights is generally RM11, but Senai International Airport will charge RM16 instead of the usual RM11.

For international travelers, the departures charge will be RM73 no matter where you’re going.

This fee applies to all airports except for KLIA2 and some others, where the international departure charge has been standardized to RM50. Before, travelers flying beyond ASEAN countries were charged RM73.

These changes will be in effect from June 1, 2024, until December 31, 2026.

Mavcom says these updates are to help the aviation sector recover and adapt after the COVID-19 pandemic. They’ve talked to lots of people and organizations to decide on these fees, aiming to keep air travel in Malaysia accessible and to support the country’s airports.
