The SkyPark Link is the airport express train of Subang Skypark (Subang Airport) or Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (LTSAAS). Heading for my Malindo Air flight to JB, I opted to use the SkyPark Link to get to Subang Skypark as I had left my luggage in KL Sentral earlier in one of the lockers.

Heading to the fare gates to exit.
There were problems with tapping out at the fare gates for everyone, and a station staff had to come out and help, testing tapping on each gate one by one until a random gate would accept it.
The SkyPark Link fare from KL Sentral to Terminal Skypark costs RM10 with a Touch ‘n Go card.
Heading out of the station.
The car park is now fenced up, so it looks like everyone has to take the long walk around it.
Or do they?
I spotted what looked like an open gate along the fence, and indeed it was.

Overall, an easy ride on the SkyPark Link, though the travel time from KL Sentral to Subang Skypark is the same as getting the KLIA Ekspres from KL Sentral to klia2, so the geographical distance from city to airport doesn’t make a difference here since the travel time is the same. If getting the train from the city, flying from either airport would be equally far in terms of travel time.
