Valet Parking @ KLIA

For all you busy businessmen out there (me included)… I really hate to park indoors and later walk about a few kilometers to get to the main terminal building.

But then again, its an RM9 difference. Take your pick !

Car jockey service at KLIA a boon for visitors

Valet service now available at KLIA

SEPANG: Visitors to the KL International Airport can now use a car jockey service at the departure hall on Level 5 at the main terminal building.

Malaysia Airports Bhd general manager Daud Hosnan said the service, a first at an international airport in this region, has been in operation since April 1.

He said although the airport had 6,000 parking bays, many motorists still parked indiscriminately at the arrival and departure halls.

“Our staff have been helping the police to stop motorists parking along the roads as this creates traffic congestion,” Daud said, adding that police issued thousands of summonses for illegal parking each month.

Smart Interpark Sdn Bhd chief operating officer P.M. Siva, whose company operates the jockey service, said about 50 motorists had been using the service each day.

“At least 30% of our clients are businessmen while the rest are from outstation who come to the airport to send off their loved ones,” he said, adding that they charged RM15, inclusive of the parking fee for the first two hours.

“A driver just has to drive up to our counter at Gate 6 and leave the car keys with our personnel who are there round-the-clock,” he said, adding the company also provides insurance coverage for the vehicles.

“We also house the cars at a specially cordoned-off parking bay which has been installed with closed circuit cameras for added security,” he said, adding that they charged RM75 for those leaving the cars overnight at the airport.
