Malaysian low-cost carrier, Firefly will launch a new service between Kuala Lumpur and the resort island of Langkawi from 1 December. The flights will be operated three times a day using the airline’s new Boeing 737-800 aircraft, with departures from KL at 0800, 1300 and 1605.
Firefly’s Managing Director, Eddy Leong, said; “Market research has shown there is good demand for this sector. Thus, we are utilising our biggest aircraft, B737-800 which has a seating capacity of 189.
“The flights will depart from Kuala Lumpur International Airport’s main terminal. This is advantageous especially for those passengers arriving to Kuala Lumpur International Airport main terminal on Malaysia Airlines and taking their onward flight to Langkawi on Firefly.
“Our codeshare agreement with Malaysia Airlines has facilitated interlining facilities for passenger and baggage check-through. This is especially convenient as it saves passengers the hassle of rechecking their baggage on Firefly upon arrival at Kuala Lumpur International Airport main terminal. With interlining facilities, passengers can collect their baggage at their final destination, which in this case is at Langkawi International Airport.”
Firefly’s also flies twice daily from Subang to Langkawi and twice daily from Penang to Langkawi using its ATR 72-500 aircraft.
