Flight Infomation:
Real-Time Subang (SZB) Flight Info Arrivals & Departures Status

Directions: From the Federal Highway, exit at the first Subang Jaya interchange near the Mesiniaga Building. Keep right after the exit and go up the flyover. The flyover joins Jalan Lapangan Terbang which also serves as entry points to Glenmarie and the NKVE. After coming down from the new Saujana flyover, you will come to a bumpy roundabout. Head straight for another 2 km. Look out for the new air traffic control tower on your left. Terminals 2 & 3 are next to it.

From October 2009, the newly renovated Terminal 3 is now known as SkyPark Subang
 Also known as Sky Park Terminal. New info and map here.

Info / Insights:
Opened in 1965 to replace the the original Sg Besi Airport, the Subang Airport or Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport developed into three separate air terminals. Terminal One or the former international airport is now demolished. During its heydays, it made the headlines when its ceiling lights came crashing to the ground, one fine day. It also endured several arson attacks near its closure. After being sacked as the country's premier airport, it suffered more humiliation. Drunken revelers invaded its tarmac (in a Year 2000 Party) and it masqueraded as an exhibition center before it was finally put down.

Terminal Two -- which was used for Kuala Lumpur / Singapore shuttle flights -- is now being utilsed as the office of Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad. The Immigration Department Office (update: now closed) is also there and it used to be a "secret option" for those in the Klang Valley wanting to avoid the long queues at the main offices. The opening of the efficient Wangsa Maju Imigresen Branch stole some of the thunder, though. The Immigration Office at Terminal 2 has a convenient KiPPas (Kios Pembaharuan Pasport) kiosk facility for automated renewing of chip-enabled Malaysian passports.

Terminal Three was purpose-built to cater to domestic flights and became almost as busy as the international terminal during its peak. All came to an end with the opening of KLIA in June 1998. Subang Airport was relegated to handling charter flights, freight carriers and private aircraft parking. Berjaya Air remained there and continued its scheduled flights to and from Tioman, Redang, Pangkor, Seletar and Koh Samui.

Seeing Terminal 3 again in its current degenerated state is heart-breaking. The halls are eerily deserted, leaving little hint of its glorious past. Although functional, it has become a pale shadow of its former self.

In the quest to turn the then new KLIA into a regional air hub, Subang Airport was unavoidably side-lined. The move remained debatable till today as Subang is much nearer and more convenient for travelers residing in KL / PJ. The distance became more apparent with the advent of budget airlines. Passengers started finding themselves paying more for taxi fares than airfares. Traveling time to Sepang also takes longer than the flight itself (for local destinations).

Today, several supporting buildings and aviation facilities stand like empty monuments, a stark reminder of the aviation complex's sudden demise. Some buildings were converted and put to other use. The hugh MAS Cargo Complex became the Asia Pacific Auction Center and the Transmile Centre. Ironically, MAS relocated its head office to the neighbourhood after selling its downtown HQ Building, as part of its recuperation. A makeshift mamak stall can be seen at the road that once led to the (now flattened) Bunga Raya VIP lounge.

A number of seafood restaurants used to operate next to the runway perimeter fence. Today, only a few survived. Restoran South Sea, BB Seafood Village, Lala Chong, Mama Chops Papa Grill (opposite Terminal 3) are the few remaining ones. The stretch leading to Sg Buloh is now populated by a motley parade of potong kereta shops, used-car lots and flower nurseries.

Common sense and a Firefly finally landed on the airport on 29th October 2007. After ten year of languishing in the wilderness, Terminal 3 is slowly picking up the pieces. Will Subang Terminal 3 claim its place as the logical site for a full-fledge low-cost carrier terminal or will it be terminal terminated?

Facilities: Within the terminal, there is a Pondok Polis, convenience shop, money changer, the Subang Flying Club office, Firefly (Fireflyz) ticketing office, Berjaya Air ticketing, AirAsia ticketing office, Merpati Air ticketing office, CIMB Bank, Maybank ATMs, restaurants, a couple of check-in counters and a dozen of baggage trolleys. The various helicopter / fixed wing aircraft charter companies operating from Subang Airport (see Aviation Companies Listings) also have offices in and around the building. The dusty information desk is no longer manned.

Taxis: A small group of taxi drivers can be seen huddled together at the door of the Arrival Hall. Coupons can be purchased from a nearby counter. Following cab fare quoted at the time of publication:

Tambang Teksi / Fares: KLIA - RM 70, LCCT - RM 75, Ampang - RM 43, PJ - RM 23,
KL City - RM 36, Subang Jaya - RM 20, USJ 1 to 13 - RM 24, USJ 15 to 16 - RM 28

Parking: The car park across the Terminal (connected by an overhead bridge) is dipilated and scary-looking even during daytime. Park at Terminal 2 if you have to.
