Subang - Firefly, Your Community Airline, will introduce its ‘Firefly Celebrates February’ promotion tomorrow and offer 20 per cent off regular fares. This is limited only to travel bookings made online from January 21 to 29, 2012 for travel throughout February to selected destinations within its network.
The routes involved are return flights from :
Subang to Penang, Alor Setar, Kota Bharu, Kuantan, Langkawi, Johor Bahru, Kuala Terengganu, Medan, Batam, Pekan Baru and Koh Samui.
Penang to Kuantan, Kota Bahru, Langkawi, Medan, Phuket and Banda Aceh.
Singapore to Subang, Kuantan and Ipoh.
COO Shorthaul Malaysia Airlines/ Firefly, Ignatius M.C. Ong, said: “This promotion is specially created for the benefit of our passengers whom we know have a desire to be with family and loved ones during the numerous religious and festive occasions in February or to simply go on holiday.
“With this offer, a group of five travelling together will save on the price of a seat based on regular fare.”
Firefly’s Marketing & Communications Head, Angelina C Fernandez added: “With Valentine’s Day just round the corner, we also wish to encourage couples to spend uninterrupted, quality time together by going on a vacation.
“This promotion is just one of many online and offline campaigns we will be offering this year to treat our customers who have stayed loyal to us. Today, we distributed fortune cookies and chocolates to passengers departing from Subang City Airport and a few other domestic airports where we operate from. This is in conjunction with the upcoming Chinese New Year festivities.”
Firefly, a wholly owned subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines, began operations in April 2007. Currently, it operates a fleet of 12 ATR 72-500 turboprop 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.
