Spanning 300 metres with 60 metres of walkalators, the Skybridge will connect the passenger from Terminal Building to the Satellite Building, allowing passengers to travel between these two points in just over five minutes.


The Skybridge was purposely built to cross over the taxiway and features glass wall, presenting passengers the opportunity to enjoy spectacular view of the airside.

The Skybridge will also give the added advantage of greater aircraft maneuverability at the apron over a land bridge.

Note: For International Departures, you will need to cross the Skybridge to go to the International Arrivals and Departures Piers (Pier P and Pier Q).


Completion Date

On November 2, 2012, Malaysia's aviation industry welcomes another landmark as the KLIA2 Skybridge, the first in Asia and only the third in the world, was completed after the last piece of the Skybridge's structure was installed.

The last piece of the bridge, the roof thrust of the Skybridge structure, would be configured to connect the bridge with the Main Terminal Building at KLIA2.

Skybridge, first in Asia, third in the world Skybridge at the KLIA2, spanning 300 meters with 60 meters of walkalators

The Skybridge steel structures were erected and connected in stages where the whole bridge was divided into two sections, to allow for full passenger segregation implementation at the terminal. Walkway at Level 3 is allocated for departing passengers and Level 3A is for arriving passengers.

The contractor responsible for designing and constructing this iconic metal structure that weighs about 3,050 metric tonnes is the joint venture (JV) of UEM Construction Sdn Bhd and Bina Puri Sdn Bhd.

This RM997 million work package awarded to the JV includes the construction of the Main Terminal building, Satellite building, Skybridge and piers.

The Skybridge links the main terminal building and the satellite building at KLIA2, making it the first airport in Asia with a skybridge that will give the added advantage of greater aircraft maneuverability while providing a spectacular view of the airside to passengers crossing it.
