Beginning 11 August this year, Firefly will offer flights from its northern hub in Penang to Koh Samui every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
The jewel in Firefly’s crown of holiday destinations is undoubtedly the pristine island of Koh Samui in Thailand. Currently, Firefly operates one daily direct flight between Subang and Koh Samui, a flight that enjoys an average seat factor of 75 percent with many repeat customers who return to Koh Samui year after year with Firefly.
The decision to introduce a direct flight between Penang and Koh Samui was in to leverage on the strength of its existing northern footprint and Penang’s fast-growing leisure market. Moreover, since Koh Samui is an extremely popular tourist destination, we hope this new route, these tourist will include Penang in their travel itinerary especially long haul tourist with multiple destinations during their travels.
Effective August 10, Firefly will also strengthen its current network with increased frequencies for its popular sectors. From its Penang hub, there will be an additional two flights to Subang, resulting in 68 flights weekly; whereas the Penang – Kota Bharu route will enjoy an additional four flights, resulting in seven flights weekly.
From Penang, Firefly also offers scheduled services to Langkawi, Kuantan, Medan, Phuket and Banda Aceh, as well as scheduled charter services to Malacca and Nanning, China.
