SkyPark Subang Terminal, Subang

I had to send my parents in-law to the SkyPark Subang Terminal, Subang (former Terminal 3) this morning.  It was my first time there after their recent refurbishment.  I dropped them off at Lane 1, parked my car at the car park just opposite the airport and saw them off at the departure hall before leaving with my boy for lunch and school.  They were taking a FireFly flight to Penang to attend a wedding dinner.  

There are four dedicated lanes provided to ease traffic flow into the airport.  Lane 1 on the left, nearest to the airport entrances has been designated for passenger drop-off and pick-up; Lane 2, designated for taxis and valet parking (more about this later); Lane 3 for coaches and delivery vehicles while Lane 4 provides quick access to the SkyPark Fixed Based Operations that caters to private and business jet travels.

Those who have deeper pockets and don't mind paying more can park their car along Lane 2 which is near to the airport entrance at a charge of RM10 for first 2 hours and RM5 every subsequent hour.  Maximum charge per day is RM50. 

Opposite the SkyPark Terminal is the airport's open-air car park accessible via an overhead bridge leading directly into the terminal.  The parking fee is RM2 for the first hour and RM1 every subsequent hour.  Maximum charge per day / Lost ticket is RM30.  The car park doesn't look well maintained though being overgrown with grass and weeds and certain sections of roads not properly tarred.

Access to the car park is through a U-turn located not far after the airport terminal under the bridge of the main road (on the right side for those arriving from Subang Jaya).

Food and beverage outlets are aplenty.  I spotted Starbucks, Big Apple Donuts & Coffee, Sakura Cuisine and Cafe, Kapitan Kopitiam, 1901 Hotdogs, an Italian pizza outlet, a noodles speciality restaurant, a sports bar and grill, a dedicated section serving popular local delicacies, a chocolate shop, an ice cream bar and a fruit juice “island”.  Wow, really spoilt for choice and definitely a headache to decide what to eat here.   Nope, we did not have our lunch there before leaving the airport as I had earlier promised my son that we would have Chilli Pan Mee minus the chillie flakes for lunch, his all time favourite! :)

very troublesome when they blocked theu-turn near the airport. Those of us from the otherside have to drive all the way to the rouandabout near Petronas to make a U-turn. Some more if 6pm sure jam like mad coz 4 lanes become 2 lane.

It looks so very nice now! So Firefly makes use of this airport, right? Somebody was telling me that it also uses KLIA...but all the time in KLIA, I never heard any Firefly flight announcements. Was pretty sure they use Subang!

We hardly go there although we noticed there are lots of nice eateries over there but like Small Kucing said, we have to make a big U-turn if we want to go back to our house at Subang.
