MALAYSIA Airlines subsidiary Firefly will increase the number of flights on its services to Kota Bharu and Penang between August 19 and October 25, to further tap the strong demand for travel on these routes.
The carrier will add 11 more flights weekly between Subang and Kota Bharu and two more flights a week for the Subang-Penang service.
Firefly’s CEO, Ignatius Ong, pointed out that Kota Bharu was one of the airline’s “hot seat states”.
“We are increasing our services to these two routes mainly to provide our business customers the ease of travelling without having to wait too long for the next flight out. We intend to provide tourists and more importantly, businessmen, the convenience they need,” he said.
“The main point is to change consumers’ negative perception of air travel where long lead time is normally required when using an airport and an airline.”
Tickets for the additional flights are now available for sale on Firefly’s website.
