AFTER exerting in the Penang Starwalk 2010, lucky participants stand to be rewarded with flight tickets and exclusive premiums courtesy of Firefly.
The community airline is sponsoring return tickets from Penang to Kota Baru, Kuantan and Kuala Terengganu, as well as 30 Firefly jerseys worth a total of RM3,000.
Firefly Penang head of sales Audrey Yu said the Penang–Kota Baru and Penang-Kuantan routes would begin Feb 1, 2011, while Penang–Kuala Terengganu routes would start March 1, 2011.
“We have had countless requests from customers for direct flights from Penang to these destinations. So we decided to reinstate these routes to cater to the popular demand,” she said after handing over the goodies to The Star’s accounts executive Leong Shir Mein.
Its Marketing and Communications head Angelina Fernandez added that they were delighted to once again be part of the Starwalk, and were proud to give away the tickets to both promote and celebrate the reinstatement of these routes.
“We are confident that the reinstatement and additional frequencies on our Penang-bound flights will provide increased opportunities to market the well established, international standard resorts and eco-tourism attractions that these states have to offer.”
The airline also announced two new routes, Kuala Lumpur– Kuching and Kuala Lumpur–Kota Kinabalu, departing from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), beginning January on its brand new Boeing 737-800s.
They are also running a “$0” Fare Promotion, for travel between Mar 27 and Oct 29, 2011. All-in, one way tickets start from RM35 during the booking period from Dec 1 to Dec 12, 2010.
