Subang - To meet the demand for flights this coming Hari Raya Haji season, Firefly will mount additional flights between Subang and Kota Bharu. These additional flights will be on 25 and 29 October 2012.
According to Firefly’s Chief Executive Officer, Ignatius Ong, “Historical pattern of this route typically indicates that the demand for flights during the Muslim festive seasons has always been high. Based on our advance sales figures, this year the demand has been even more so. We reckon that people are now looking for smarter travel options, and air travel is faster, safer, comfortable and more convenient than driving. This in return will allow travellers to savour more quality time at their destination."
The additional flights are available for sale now in Firefly’s website and customers are urged to buy their tickets quickly as seats are being taken up at a swift pace.
What’s more, Firefly offers all passengers the convenience of complimentary 20kg checked baggage allowance and in-flight refreshment, 30 minute check-in buffer, web check-in facility, as well as the accessibility of city airports - all essential conveniences for busy individuals travelling during a peak period.
“This year, Hari Raya Haji will be falling on a long weekend, therefore with our expedient flight timings to Kota Bharu as well as to all other destinations, we are expecting encouraging response from celebrating Muslims eager to return to their respective hometowns for a reunion with families and friends, as well as those taking advantage of the short break.
"We look forward to flying everyone safely and promptly to their destination. To all Muslims, we wish you a blessed and joyous Hari Raya Haji ahead,” he ended.
