KLIA Main was designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa, with an emphasis of natural lighting within the airport complex. Spanning 38.4m along a grid pattern, the abstract symbolic architecture by the late Kisho Kurokawa encompasses the Islamic geometry and cutting edge technology with tropical rainforest in mind.

KLIA features a number of modern design elements that assist in the efficient operation of the airport. It is one of the first Asia Pacific airports to become 100% Bar Coded Boarding Pass capable. The current three-runway system is capable of handling up to 108 landings per hour. These runways operate on different departure/arrival modes according to the air traffic requirements.
