Firefly is Back in Seletar Airport, Singapore!

SINGAPORE 13 June 2022 - Firefly today reinstates its flights to Seletar Airport in Singapore from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, Subang, Malaysia, with a send-off event to mark the occasion. It is another significant milestone as part of post-pandemic recovery initiatives.

FY3124 departed from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport to Seletar Airport and arrived with 59 passengers on board this morning. Firefly’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Philip See, and his accompanying delegation were warmly welcomed by Mr Tan Lye Teck, Executive Vice President, Airport Management, Changi Airport Group, upon arrival.

Firefly’s maiden flight to Seletar was in April 2019. Flights were suspended in March 2020 due to the pandemic. With the resumption of scheduled flights, the airline will operate twice-daily Kuala Lumpur-Singapore services from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport to Seletar Airport respectively.

“This recommencement has become one of the highlights for Firefly this year especially after the last flight in March 2020. Singapore has become one of the important destinations for us, connecting passengers of leisure and business. Hence, this recommencement will be able to connect passengers from both countries, whilst enhancing the economy via the tourism industry”, said Firefly CEO Philip See.

Mr Tan Lye Teck added, “With Firefly flights back, travellers can once again enjoy convenient connections between Seletar Airport and Kuala Lumpur.
