Hi -

I'd be pretty worried about that connection. I'm assuming you mean you only have one hour 15 mins.

You will need to clear immigration through KLIA - get your bags, take the bus to LCCT (I think it's around 20km's) - then re-check your bags in at LCCT.

We travelled through LCCT four times recently and found it to be extremely busy.

They also close check in sometime before the flight actually departs. Remember you'll have to clear immigration again as well. I don't think you've got a change of making it. You will most probably need to get a later flight.

Hi,route distance between KLIA to LCCT is 20kms.

Based on your arrival time from Singapore and connecting flight to Krabi which departs at 1205hrs, you definitely do NOT have time to connect at all.

You need to plan again:-

Available options:-

a). Tiger Airways from Singapore to Phuket;then land transfer(takes around 2.5hrs to Krabi-beautiful scenery along the way).

b). Gold Coast to KL vide Air Asia X,then connect onto Air Asia to Krabi.Air Asia X also arrives into LCCT;provided you have at least 3hours prior to flight AK862 to KBV

c). Earlier arrival from Singapore into KL.

you need to allow an hour at the minimum to land at KLIA and then travel to LCCT, plus you then will need 2 hours for check in (1hour minimum before it closes) - and that is it all goes well with no problems or delays. So your 1hr and 15 is not nearly enough,

Get an earlier flight in, or a later flight out. You need to allow at least 3 hours from the ETA at KLIA to depature time at LCCT.

Yes, I would allow 3 hours for transfers between KLIA/LCCT or vice versa. Same airport but you have to take a looong go-around by road as the runway is in between the two terminals.
