Firefly introduces Kota Bharu - Johor Bahru route

PETALING JAYA: Malaysians can now for the first time enjoy direct flights between the south and east coast of the peninsula. Firefly became the first airline to provide direct air linkages with its new Kota Baru-Johor Baru route.

“Our direct, thrice weekly services with a travel time of approximately one hour and 40 minutes provides tremendous convenience to travellers. “We are providing an alternative to existing public land transportation servicing this route such as coach and rail services,” said Malaysian Airlines chief operating officer (short haul) Ignatius M.C. Ong in a statement yesterday.

He added that the direct flights were the best solution for leisure and business travellers who needed to arrive at their destinations quickly and safely. Ong said the web check-in facility allowed passengers to check in at their convenience from their home or office.

The earliest flight departs from Kota Bharu at 8.30am and arrives in Johor Baru at 10.10am while flights out of Johor Baru arrive in Kota Bharu at 12.10pm. The airline is currently running a promotion on bookings on selected domestic routes between May 7 and June 30 with air fares starting at RM75 one-way.

The promotion is also for the Penang-Langkawi, Penang-Kota Bharu, Penang-Kuantan, Subang-Penang, Subang-Kota Bharu, Subang-Langkawi, Subang- Kuala Terengganu, Subang-Johor Bahru and Subang-Alor Setar routes.
