Left Luggage Lockers at KLIA

Posted by on 19 March 2010

When my former roommate from Ateneo came for a visit last month, she asked me about left luggage lockers at KL International Airport (KLIA). I was embarrassed to admit that I knew nothing about it, other than the fact that I’ve seen it somewhere in KLIA. The most that I could do at that time was forward her the link to the information in KLIA’s website.

To redeem myself, the next time I went to KLIA, I made it a point to drop by the left luggage lockers at the Departure Hall (Level 5) and ask for some information.

The left luggage lockers are located behind check-in counter B. As you walk past the check-in counter, you should see a pharmacy on your left. Continue walking and you’ll see a coffee shop on your right. The left luggage lockers are right next to it, just before the surau (Muslim prayer rooms). You can’t miss the maroon-coloured lockers.

The staff who were on duty at that time were very friendly and helpful — they even showed me the different locker sizes that are available for rent.

This is the small locker that costs RM10 per day. It measures 40cm x 32cm x 75cm.

The brochure that you see at the bottom is about the width of a sheet of A4 size paper. I intentionally shot it together with the locker to you give you a sense of scale.

This is the medium locker at RM20 per day. It measures 55cm x 43cm x 75cm. Carry-on luggage can easily fit into them.

Those papers taped at the sides are A4 size, as well.

And this is the big locker at RM30 per day. It’s big enough to hold a golf bag and then some at 135cm x 32cm x 43cm.


In their brochure, they also have extra large lockers (up to 2 cubic meters) for RM40 per day but I didn’t get to see it that day.

You can rent a locker for as long as you want. And you can stuff as much luggage as you can into each locker. The management reserves the right, however, to check your luggage and/or x-ray them, if deemed necessary.

They’re currently having a promotion that entitles you to one day free if you rent the lockers for ten days or more.

There are also left luggage lockers at the Arrival Hall (Level 3). After exiting the baggage claim area, it’s located on the left-hand side, right after Burger King. I’ll check on it next time and post more photos. Both luggage storage facilities are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

For more information, call +603-8787-4211 or +603-8776-5035. You can also email them at

    most people aren’t aware of left-luggage lockers/counters. but for me, this is one thing that’s very important to have in airports/train terminals.

    I never really paid attention to these things but when I went to Amsterdam with my mom, I needed them. And that’s when I realised how useful they are. That’s why I’m posting this, in the hopes that someone who needs this info will find this here :)

    Hello Mimi,

    Nice blog, btw., and thanks to your mom for the link. ;)

    I certainly remember using these luggage lockers at KLIA having spent the night in one of those hotels near KL before continuing our trip to Cebu a few years back. As the Bernese people here would say, ‘gäbig’ or practical.

    Here in CH, we have them at the train stations.

    Left Luggage is certainly a valuable and important facility when we travel by train and flight for stopovers or transit.When we traveled to Italy for a conference in Florence and we had time to kill before our train leaves in the late afternoon.We put our things at the LL and took a hop in hop off bus ride around Rome.The same goes when we transit in Sydney from Brisbane.Also when we are at the last leg of our travels we certainly don’t need to chug along our soiled clothes or unnecessary items to the hotel,just leave at the airport or train station.

    Zai: Great input. Thanks! :)

    Hi Mimi, I am travelling on 3rd from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur and I have got 3 suitcases and around 4 bags along with 2 laptop bags and one 19″ TV box. Can you please suggest what kind of locker should I rent it out.
    Please help us with the details to book this locker before we travel. I am coming to KLIA via Malaysia Airlines which reaches at 20:50PM.

  20. Mimi

    Sanjeev: So sorry. I have no idea how big a 19″ TV box can be.

  21. Nuwan

    Thank you soooooo much Mimi… I was really wondering how big those lockers would be thinking about the dimensions specified in web site… But your photos with A4 papers saved my day and thanks a lot for that brilliant piece of information…!

    One more thing… I’m flying towards Australia (coming from Sri Lanka) but willing to travel Singapore, Thailand & Malaysia on my way as a Trip… You know… (I’m recently married…!)

    My brief schedule is like this..

    1) From Colombo to Singapore (Via Kuala Lumpur since Air Asia only has that option)
    2) Singapore to Bangkok (and stay there for say one week)
    3) Back to Kuala Lumpur
    4) From Kuala Lumpur to Perth

    My question is, during my first flight, can I take my luggage out of the Plane at Kuala Lumpur transition (though my ticket is to Singapore) and to use ‘left luggage’ until I come back to Kuala Lumpur from Thailand?
    (My only concern is, whether Air Asia would allow us to get the luggage when we’re in a transition airport on our way to another destination…)

    I’ve never been in International Air flights before so if I’m missing something please don’t laugh….

    Your help is greatly appreciated….

    Do you know if there are locker locked using code instead of key?where one person can left stuff in locker and another person can pick up later just by same code?

    Nice informative blog. Thank you. Just to share, I just find out there is also an alternative luggage storage at KLIA too, and their website name is . The storage rate is also very cheap compared to the one in KLIA.

  24. Mimi

    Thanks for sharing, Teh.
