SUBANG, 17 November 2014: Firefly and Circle K today launched its new set of ready-to-go meals that passengers can bring onboard. A tasting event was organized for the media and was held at the Circle K outlet in Subang’s Skypark International Airport.
Guests and members of the media were served Firefly Express Meal, which features five (5) meals to choose from: Chicken Rice, Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng, Spaghetti Bolognese, Spaghetti Mamak Style and a meat-free option, Macaroni & Cheese.
Speaking at the tasting event, Firefly’s chief executive officer Ignatius Ong said: “Firefly is delighted to partner with Circle K to create a menu featuring local and western staples, offering the opportunity for travelers from different places to enjoy a taste of Malaysia in the air. Firefly always strives to offer quality inflight dining experience that matches the high expectations of our passengers. The Circle K menu thus far has been well-received by our customers and Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng as the most popular choice.”
“A large majority of our passengers make-up of the business crowd, and they would normally spend their hour long flight with a short nap or catch up with work. What sets this service apart from other carriers is that customers can choose to eat their meals before boarding their flight or have it onboard itself. This service is aimed at supporting the airline’s new tagline, Beyond Convenience,” added Ong.
Passengers are required to pre-book their meals online and collect their meals from Circle K (located in Subang Skypark Airport) prior to boarding their flights. Firefly’s existing complimentary refreshments will continue to be served on-board all flights.
For the next three (3) days (until 20 November), Firefly Express Meal will be sold at an introductory price of RM9.50 per meal, a RM3 discount off its regular price of RM12.50.
“We understand the importance of in-flight meal is to enhance overall travel experience, hence ensure our continuous efforts in improving our initiatives from this aspect. We hope Firefly Express Meal will be made available for flights departing from all airports that Firefly operates in within the next few months,” Ong further adds.
Firefly offers all passengers the convenience of complimentary 20kg checked baggage allowance and in-flight refreshments, 30 minute check-in buffer, web and self-check-in facilities, as well as the opportunity to accrue and redeem Enrich points– all essential conveniences for busy individuals travelling during peak periods.
