Firefly in Malaysia will add four weekly flights on its Subang – Langkawi , from May 25 to June 10 in route. This addition is to meet summer holiday demand. The additional frequencies will be on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
With these additional flights, the total number of weekly flights between Subang and Langkawi will increase from 10 to 14. This will result in an increase of weekly seats on this route from 1,440 to 2,016.
Firefly’s Head of Marketing & Communications, Angelina C Fernandez said “Firefly’s move to increase frequency during this peak travel season is also in line with Tourism Malaysia’s initiative to promote domestic tourism.”
She further added, “Langkawi is a great family destination with plenty of family oriented activities. Besides water based recreation such as swimming, snorkeling and island hopping, there are many educational and fun experiences that parents with young children can do together such as experiencing the cable car ride on Mt Machincang and visiting Underwater World Langkawi which has a large collection of marine animals.”
“Langkawi is also famous for its duty-free shopping and has a wide selection of tax-exempted goods ranging from electrical equipment and gadgets to cosmetics, fragrances, chocolates, cigars and more.” adds Mr Manoharan Periasamy, Director, Tourism Malaysia.
Firefly, a wholly owned subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines, began operations in April 2007. Currently, it operates a fleet of 12 ATR 72-500 turboprop aircraft out of Penang and Subang, connecting secondary destinations within the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle as well as providing air linkages between Malaysia and Singapore.
