Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Monday, 6 July 2009

Firefly has commenced operations to Singapore Airport’s Budget Terminal. The airline is the fourth airline to join the Changi family in 2009.

Firefly, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines, now operates six daily flights between Singapore and Subang (Kuala Lumpur).

 The airline will begin operating routes between Singapore and other destinations in Malaysia, such as Ipoh (scheduled flights commencing on 12 July 2009), Kuala Terengganu (from 14 July 2009), Kuantan (from 22 July 2009) and Malacca (from 1 September 2009).

The airline also plans to launch flights to Alor Setar and Kota Bahru later this year.

In total, Firefly will add 12 daily flights to Changi Airport, representing a 12% increase in scheduled passenger flights between Singapore and Malaysia.

With the airline’s new services, Changi Airport will be linked to nine cities in Malaysia via 110 daily flights, making it the international airport with the most connections to Malaysia.

Changi Airport Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Lee Seow Hiang, said, “Firefly’s new flights to Changi will add to the already burgeoning air travel market between Singapore and Malaysia. Between January and May 2009, total passenger movements between the two countries registered almost 1.3 million, a 20.2% growth compared to the corresponding period last year. Given the strong traffic potential on the Singapore-Malaysia routes and the extensive air network of Changi Airport, I am confident Firefly will find many new business opportunities at Changi.”

With the addition of Firefly, Changi Airport will be connected by 85 scheduled airlines, via 4602 weekly scheduled flights to a record high of 196 cities in 60 countries.
