Flying to Singapore is getting much easier

Plane, generic, travel

From Apr 21, flying to Singapore is going to be so much easier when Firefly reinstates its flights to Seletar Airport in Singapore from Subang. The short-haul airline will begin by operating two flights daily from Apr 22-28, then six times daily from Apr 29. The first flight takes off from Subang at 6.50am and the last at 5.30pm.

The busiest international air route in the world is between KL and Singapore with over 30,000 flights annually! While most flights depart from KLIA, catching a flight from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (ie, the Subang airport) is much more convenient and requires much less travel time for those living in the Klang Valley. Meanwhile, Seletar Airport re-opened at the end of 2018 after a refurbishment and is conveniently located near major suburbs like Ang Mo Kio, Punggol and Sembawang.

Firefly has been in service for 12 years and has a fleet of 12 ATR 72-500 turboprops connecting passengers from Penang and Subang to destinations in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore.

Tickets are available for purchase at their website. For more information, download the Firefly app or call 03 7845 4543.
