Firefly About Firefly

Firefly is a subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines founded in 2007. On April 3, the low cost airline operates its first flight from Penang. A constantly developing airline, it continues to offer new destinations from its two hubs at Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah airport in Subang and at Penang international airport.

In June 2007, it announced the order for ten ATR 72-500s. The first aircraft were delivered in August and the previously used Fokker F50s were discontinued in 2018. Firefly appreciates the ATR 72-500s because they are low-fuel and low-noise aircraft, characteristics in line with its values concerning the protection of the air and environment. Firefly’s qualities were recognized at the 2010 Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Aerospace & Defense Awards, at which it received the award for Best Value Airline.

In November 2011, the unexpected resignation of Datuk Eddy Leong Chin Tung, Managing Director of Firefly, raised the question of the airline’s future. In question, the increase in the price of fuel and the decrease in sales to and from Europe. It is in April 2014 that Firefly celebrates its 7th anniversary, offering discounted plane tickets. In the same year, it introduced the “ready to go” service, which allows travelers to buy their meal in advance, then take it on board for consumption. Firefly is not a member of any alliance. Enrich is Malaysia Airlines’ loyalty program, which also works with Firefly passengers also.
