Firefly offers 20 per cent discount on February fares


KUALA LUMPUR: Firefly will introduce its ‘Firefly Celebrates February’ promotion today (January 21) and offer 20 per cent off regular fares.

In a statement yesterday, the community airline said the promotion is limited only to travel bookings made online from Jan 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 Baharu, Kuala Terengganu, Medan, Batam, Pekan Baru and Koh Samui.

The promotion is also for Penang to Kuantan, Kota Baharu, Langkawi, Medan, Phuket and Banda Aceh, as well as Singapore to Subang, Kuantan and Ipoh.

“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,” its chief operating officer Shorthaul Malaysia Airlines/Firefly, Ignatius M C Ong, said.

Ong said with the offer, a group of five travelling together will save on the price of a regular fare seat.

“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,” Firefly’s Marketing and Communications Head, Angelina C Fernandez, said.

“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.

“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,” she added. — Bernama
