Commencing on 24 January 2014, the carrier will operate four weekly flights to the Thai capital’s Don Mueang International Airport, direct from Kota Bharu, on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Services will operate every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday using an ATR turboprop aircraft.
“This new route is 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 got to offer,” said Firefly’s CEO, Ignatius Ong.
A regional subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines, Firefly currently operates to destinations on the Malay Peninsula and surrounding countries including Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia.
