Before I continue the story of "How to Get LCCT from KL Central" , I would like to inform the meaning of
1. KL CENTRAL KUALA LUMPUR
Kuala Lumpur Sentral (KL Sentral) or Sentral Kuala Lumpur is a transit-oriented development that houses the main railway station of Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. Opened on 16 April 2001, despite its name it is actually even less central than the old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, a colonial-era landmark that now remains open for local commuter trains only. KL Sentral is the largest railway station in Southeast Asia.
KL Sentral was designed as an intermodal transportation hub. Most of Kuala Lumpur's passenger rail lines serve KL Sentral, while many intercity trains serving Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore start there. All the railway components of the scheme have been completed, but some other parts such as shopping malls, offices and apartments are still under construction and are expected to be complete by 2015. It was also designed to be a new business and financial hub for Kuala Lumpur.

5. TERMINAL LCCT (AIR ASIA TERMINAL)
The Low Cost Carrier Terminal is specifically built at KL International Airport to cater to the growing passengers of the Low Cost Airlines, especially the passengers of Air Asia.
The LCCT is about 20km from KLIA Main Terminal Building (MTB) and can be accessed via the KLIA circular or airport cargo road.
Construction of the LCC Terminal began on June 2005 at an approximate cost of RM 108 million.
The 35,290 square meters terminal is designed and built to suit the Low Cost Carrier (LCC) business model that requires basic terminal facilities and amenities. With this in mind, the terminal is designed to facilitate the passengers' movement of international and domestic departures/arrivals within a single floor operation area. Thus it doesn't require travellators, escalators and aerobridges to be provided at the terminal.
The operation of the LCC Terminal is supported by the existing parking apron and additional infrastructures such as car parks, surface access and other utilities. This terminal is capable of handling 10million passengers a year and there is scope for further expansion of up to 15 million passengers, if required in the future.
