Firefly has announced that will begin its operations between Kota Bharu and Bangkok, from Sultan Ismail Petra Airport to Don Mueang International Airport on 24 January 2014, four times weekly.
Firefly’s chief executive officer Ignatius Ong commented, “Firefly operates 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. Services on this new route are an indication that Firefly is marking a significant growth and concurrently offering wider travelling options for business and leisure to and from Thailand. With connections to cities such as Koh Samui, Phuket and now Bangkok, Firefly will market this sector and simultaneously promote the attractions that these cities have to offer.”
“Passengers will find our flight times ideal for both business and leisure travellers alike. The flight departs Kota Bharu at 09:20 and arrives in Bangkok at 10:50, providing passengers plenty of time at their destination. Similarly flights out of Bangkok arrive in Kota Bharu at 14:50. Besides domestic travellers, we’re also targeting Bangkok travellers keen on visiting Kota Bharu and other parts of Northern Peninsular Malaysia," Ong said.
