Firefly announces short-term service revisions
Malaysia Airlines regional subsidiary Firefly has announced changes to its flight schedule from 10th March 2009 to 28th March 2009.
Flights from Penang to Kuala Terengganu, Kota Bahru, Koh Samui and Kuantan are temporarily suspended. Flights from Penang to Langkawi, Phuket, Medan and Banda Aceh have been re-timed. Some flights out of Subang airport have also been re-timed. Passengers are being notified of alternative flight arrangements.
These changes are part of the airline's planned network rationalisation in view of the current economic environment and maintenance requirements of one of its aircraft.
"We are taking necessary initiatives to reduce the impact on our travelling passengers. We apologise to all our passengers for any inconvenience" said Eddy Leong, managing director, Firefly.
