Subang - Kerteh Via Firefly

This is my second time taking flight after my first flight two years ago for business purpose to Kuching. At that time, I took MAS to Kuching & return via AirAsia. Subang Airport is a very convenient airport as it is strategically located in the middle of Klang Valley and easily accessible via the highway network. The distance between the capital of Kuala Lumpur is just 20km compared to around 50-60km from KLIA. It is a right decision by the government to allow its operation. This airport however is not allowed to use jet engine aircraft because of the noise pollution as the surrounding is near to residential area. I honestly rate Firefly service and compareable to MAS. With new aircraft and comfortable leather seat plus free refreshment onboard, I would think it is a good option for domestic travel without the hassle to go to KLIA for such a short trip. In other words, you save fuel, time and avoid long queue too.

Innovative idea of creating "stars" in the skies.

Wide and comfortable alley.

Brand new ATR 72-500 aircraft. Firefly currently have 5 new air crafts serving domestic and international flight to Thailand & Indonesia.
