Kuala Lumpur is a large hub for flights within Asia and beyond so many carriers offer competitive prices and options. Both British Airways and Malaysia Airlines fly nonstop between Heathrow and Kuala Lumpur. These direct flights to Malaysia take just under 13 hours. Many carriers including KLM, Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Thai Airways, Emirates, Etihad, and Qatar Airways fly from London, Manchester, and Birmingham to Kuala Lumpur with a change of plane along the way.
If your holiday includes time in Penang or Langkawi, we suggest starting or ending your holiday there. The cost to arrive in Kuala Lumpur and depart from Penang or Langkawi is often the same or only marginally higher than flying in and out of Kuala Lumpur. If you’re planning to end your holiday on the beaches of Tioman island, consider flying out of Singapore as it’s the closest international airport.
Return fares can be as low as £400 per person although nonstop flights tend to start around £550.
