The rail operator said that along with the introduction of its new ETS routes, it had restructured the scheduling of its train services, including that of the KTM Intercity.

Back in July, it was reported that KTM was looking to collaborate with regional and local low-cost airlines flying to the northern region in a bid to improve connectivity to its KL-Padang Besar ETS service. The rail operator had said to fully utilise the ETS, it would be offering door-to-door service to airline passengers commuting to their destinations in order to attract more domestic and international tourists.
