Pangkor Laut to KLIA 19:10 Flight - Emirates

Hello,

I'm flying Emirates home from KLIA at 19:10 (EK347), and I have transfers included, but in the T&C's it says that that flight may incur 50% extra transfer fee (I'm travelling with Kuoni). Seems a bit strange to me because its not an early flight?

Has anyone done this flight/transfer? Did you have any problems. I would thought we would leave the resort 12ish - 4 hours to KLIA - check in at 4-5pm for flight at 7pm?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

You don't say when this is. Is it possibly on one of Malaysia's very many public holidays (there are 46 this year)? That could make the journey a lot longer and possibly more expensive.

Ah - the last day of Chinese New Year! It goes on for 15 days here and the 11th Feb on Penang is Chap Goh Meh. It's also the third day of the Thaipusam festival.

Whether any of this has anything at all to do with your surcharge I don't know, but it might explain some of what might be going on on the roads.

Thanks,

Roughly how long do you think it would take from Lumut to KLIA (aiming to be there for about 5PM?)

I've never done the journey so I've no idea. But do have a look at some of the other posts on this forum as the answer might be in one of them.

Ipoh to KLIA is about 3.5 if you observe the speed limit ;) by car.

If you took a van, their speed limit is 90. Although I have been overtaken by vans.

From Lumut to Ipoh is 1.5 hours thereabouts, but your driver may exit before Ipoh which makes it shorter. I would allow 5 hours and check-in online. But I am waiving any responsibility - during festive season anything can happen.
