Q: Kuala Lumpur International Airport is an international hub airport in the region. Many budget airlines use there because the fee is affordable. That's their strategy.
does this sound natural?
A: × Many budget airlines use there because the fee is affordable.
✓ Many budget airlines use it because the fee is affordable.

"use there" is wrong, but it's difficult to explain why. You could also say "pass through there" or "stop there".

"the fee is affordable" sounds weird but is technically correct. A more natural way to say it is "it's affordable". I think it sounds weird because you use something about "the fee" to make a point about "it".

Native speakers rarely end paragraphs with "that's the idea" or "that's their strategy". A more natural was is to say "The idea is to ...." or "their strategy is to ...". So you should write "Many budget airlines' strategy is to..."

Q: No, not as long as I'm living here in Kuala Lumpur.

In this sentence, What does the word “not” modify here?
How does it denying?
I may be wrong, I think having “No” and “not”
next to each other have a double implicated meaning.
A: I wouldn't say it's a double meaning, the "not as long as I'm living here in Kuala Lumpur" is expanding on the answer of "no", it's just the structure of the sentence that puts "no" and "not" next to each other.

The "not" is modifying whatever the previous sentence was talking about, so it's saying that something will not happen during the time that you're living in Kuala Lumpur. The exact topic that "not" is modifying is omitted because in a conversation, you'd already know what you're talking about.

For example:
"Are your parents going to visit you for Christmas?"
"No, (they will) not (visit me for Christmas) as long as I'm living here in Kuala Lumpur"
Q: In Kuala Lumpur, weather is very good.

(クアラルンプールはとても過ごしやすい気候です。) does this sound natural?
