Kuala Lumpur officially the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, or more commonly KL, is the national capital of Malaysia as well as its largest city. The only alpha world city in Malaysia, it covers an area of 243 km2 (94 sq mi) and has an estimated population of 1.73 million as of 2016. Greater Kuala Lumpur, also known as the Klang Valley, is an urban agglomeration of 7.25 million people as of 2017. It is among the fastest growing metropolitan regions in South-East Asia, in both population and economic development.
Kuala Lumpur is the cultural, financial and economic centre of Malaysia, home to the Parliament of Malaysia, and the official residence of the Malaysian King, the Istana Negara. The city once held the headquarters of the executive and judicial branches of the federal government as well, but they were moved to Putrajaya in early 1999. Some sections of the judiciary still remain in Kuala Lumpur.
Kuala Lumpur is one of three Federal Territories of Malaysia, enclaved within the state of Selangor, on the central west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Since the 1990s, the city has played host to many international sporting, political and cultural events including the 1998 Commonwealth Games. Kuala Lumpur has undergone rapid development in recent decades. It is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers, which have become an iconic symbol of Malaysia's futuristic development.
KL International Airport (KLIA 1) is one of Asia's major aviation hubs and is a destination in itself. It is located at the top of the southern corridor of Peninsular Malaysia, bordering the states of Selangor and Negeri Sembilan. Situated in the Sepang district, it is approximately 50km from the capital city, Kuala Lumpur.
KLIA 1 is a unique airport that offers something for everyone whether it is for business, entertainment or relaxation. The airport is part of the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) where new technology is actively pursued.
Surrounded by four main cities - Kuala Lumpur, Shah Alam, Seremban and Malacca - the airport is a catchment area that offers exciting opportunities for businesses. As modern as it sounds, KLIA 1 still strives to create a homely airport with a serene environment.
Kuala Lumpur International Airport has three parallel runways (one for KLIA Main Terminal, one for KLIA2, and one runway that can be used for both terminals. Two KLIA operational runways are located 2 kilometres from each other, which are designed for simultaneous take-offs and landings. The two runways are monitored by the main Air Traffic Control (ATC) Tower, which was the tallest ATC tower in the world when built (currently 3rd, behind KLIA2 and Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport). Runway 3 for KLIA2 is monitored by a dedicated separate ATC Tower which, standing at 133.8m, is currently the tallest in the world.
