Malaysia Airlines Connection time at Kuala Lumpur airport

I have 2 flights booked on the same day from kuching to KL then KL to Langkawi. Both are with Malaysia airlines. The second flight time has been changed so we now have 2 hours between the first flight landing and the second taking off.

I have read on the Malaysia Airlines website that they will if we state our final destination on check in that they will handle our baggage onto the connecting flight. With this in mind, do people think 2 hours between flights is enough time.

Thanks in advance

Yes, you should not worry if they are both through KLIA.

We flew in from London with Malaysia Airlines and connected to Koh Samui (code share with Bangkok Airways) in June and we only had 1 hour and 10 minutes between flights which we were told was adequate. Our bags were checked the whole way through from our starting domestic airport in the UK.

We were delayed departing London which meant that our connection was even tighter, but there was a representative waiting for us on arrival at the gate who pointed us towards the Koh Samui gate which had been held open to allow around 20 passengers transferring from the London flight to board. Our bags didn't make the connection but were delivered to us later that evening - having taken a diversion from KL to Bangkok and then down to Koh Samui!

Best wishes.

I wouldn't worry 2 hours will be more than enough time, when you get off the flight just follow the connecting flight signs, then check the departure board to see what gate your flight leaves from and go straight there.

You have more than enough time to get your next flight domestic onward flight.

Im assuming you have booked on one ticket? If there are any problems, MAS (Malaysia Airlines) will put you on the next available flight, when you check in at Kuching you will get boarding cards for both flights.
