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

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.
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.
