Senai to be Firefly's southern hub come May
By Presenna Nambiar
Published: 2011/02/23




FIREFLY'S second phase of expansion involves making largely ignored Senai International Airport in Johor Baru as its southern hub come May 2011.

Currently only Malaysia Airlines, Firefly and AirAsia service Senai airport.

The second prong of its plans will also see it setting up in Kota Kinabalu International Airport earlier than planned, to support its parent MAS' operations there.

Initial plans had only been for it to start operating an aircraft out of Kota Kinabalu airport in 2012.




This brings the total number of hubs to five, including Skypark Subang, Penang International Airport and Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

"Yes, today Senai airport may not look very attractive, but we are looking at the long term. In five years, we think the place will blossom," Firefly managing director Datuk Eddy Leong told reporters in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

He said the fact that Senai airport is two and a half times cheaper than Changi Airport to operate in, mainly due to currency exchange, will also work to its benefit once the Iskandar region is in full swing.

Firefly will park two leased Boeing 737-400s in Senai airport for its operations there.

Leong said the plan was to operate B737-400s there until demand grows enough for it to start using B737-800s.

B737-400s are three and a half times cheaper to lease than B737-800s.

Its plans include starting international flights out of Senai to Indonesian destinations such as Jakarta, Surabaya and Bandung in the third quarter of the year and to Bangkok, Thailand, in the fourth quarter.

It is currently trying to secure air rights to the destinations.

Currently, Senai airport does not offer international flights.

Firefly will start operations out of Senai airport with double daily flights to both Kuching and Kota Kinabalu in May and June respectively.

Firefly to develop Sultan Ismail Int’l Airport as southern hub
28th March, 2011
http://www.newsabahtimes.com.my/nstweb/fullstory/47545



Leong (2nd from left) presents a memento to Deputy Chief Executive Officer
of Senai Airport, Shahrull Allam during the ceremony


JOHOR BHARU: FlyFirefly Sdn Bhd, a unit of Malaysia Airline System Bhd (MAS), will develop the Sultan Ismail International Airport as its southern hub in tandem with developments taking place at Iskandar Malaysia, the southern economic development corridor in Johor.

“The reason we are setting up a southern hub is because of Iskandar Malaysia. We actually wanted to establish a hub here back in 2007 but between then and 2011, many things happened like the sub-prime financial crisis.

“A lot of things have changed now but at that time it was not clear what the progress will be like at Iskandar Malaysia, but today, four years later, we can see the results of the planned developments,” said FireFly Managing Director Datuk Eddy Leong.

He was speaking to reporters after the joint unveiling of the community airline’s first Boeing 737-400 jet aircraft by MAS Chairman Tan Sri Dr Mohd Munir Abdul Majid, Iskandar Regional Development Authority Chief Executive Ismail Ibrahim and Senai Airports Sdn Bhd Deputy Chief Executive Officer Shahrull Allam here on Saturday.

The airline’s routes out of Johor will connect its Eastern hub in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, and also Indonesia and neighboring countries in the region in the second-half of the year.

“The 737-400 will cater for our current development stage and after it surpasses this (stage), we will convert them to the larger capacity 737-800 aircraft,” he added.

At present, Firefly is leasing two 737-400 aircraft for less than five years while targetting to bring into service a total of 30 Boeing 737-800 aircraft between now and 2015.

Leong said the airport targeted an annual passenger traffic of 3.5 million the next two to three years and moving forward, aimed to handle five million passengers a year.

“The passenger traffic will only be from Firefly, but collectively, we will work with other airlines to bring passenger traffic to the airport.

“The hub will only be successful if there are many other airlines flying in to provide the much needed connectivity, in a sense, the more the merrier,” he said.

International flights to resume at Senai Airport
Published: 2011/05/07
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

International flights are to resume from the Senai Airport in Johor after a lapse of almost a year.

Firefly Sdn Bhd, the low cost carrier, has confirmed that it will introduce its maiden flight to the Indonesian cities of Surabaya and Bandung on Aug 12 and Aug 16 respectively.

It will also fly to Bangkok, at the end of the year.

The Senai Airport used to be the southern hub of budget airline AirAsia's international operations, with flights to Macau, Bangkok and Jakarta until it halted the services in the middle of last year.

Sriwijaya, the Indonesia-based airline, also operated a flight to Surabaya from Senai but stopped doing so in August last year.

Since then, the Senai Airport has only catered to domestic flights but with Firefly's latest confirmation, the Johor state government’s efforts to turn it into an international destination, is picking up pace.

The Johor Tourism Department Director, Dr Shaari Mohd Nooh said that Firefly, a subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines, is serious in wanting to make the Senai Airport its southern hub.

"Firefly will have two planes for the international flights and a set of crew permanently stationed here," he added.

He was speaking after launching the Johor Travel Fair 2011 at the Sutera Mall in Johor Baru on Friday.

Shaari also said that China Airlines is interested in flying to Senai from the southern city of Guangzhou and is now in talks with the Malaysian Department of Civil Aviation for landing rights.

"Many Chinese citizens apply for visas at the Malaysian Consulate in Guangzhou. So, it's natural, that they want to fly out from Guangzhou airport.

"Having more international flights into Senai Airport will only increase tourist arrivals into Johor," he added.--Bernama

Though China-Taiwan cross strait relations has warmed very considerably in recent years, I doubt the prospect of fifth freedom traffic rights necessary to allow the mentioned Taiwanese carrier to do Guangzhou-JHB anytime soon

Firefly to use JB for regional routes
Published: 2011/05/19
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1Mn9ZzRyT

Firefly will start flying to regional destinations this year from its southern hub in Johor Bahru (JB), commencing with the flights to two Indonesian cities.

Its managing director, Datuk Eddy Leong, said Firefly would commence operations to Surabaya and Bandung from August and to Bangkok in the fourth quarter of this year.

"These routes are already on sale and the load factor looks promising," he said in a statement in conjunction with the launch of its inaugural flight from JB to Kuching.

Firefly’s FY816 took off at 7.30am from Senai International Airport with a load of 70 per cent and touched down at Kuching International Airport at 8.55am while its load factor on its return flight was 75 per cent.

He said additional domestic flights had also been scheduled between JB and Langkawi as well as JB and Penang in conjunction with the school holidays in the second quarter of this year.

"Johor is a significant part of Firefly’s growth plan as our target market will now expand to mass passengers from the southern region, Singapore, Batam and transit passengers in Sabah and Sarawak," he said.

He said the southern hub routes would also increase accessibility for tourists and business travellers into the commercial development of Iskandar Malaysia.

To date, Firefly has flown 3.6 million passengers with a target to fly one million passengers from the southern hub by end-2012. -- Bernama

Budget airline’s southern hub flies to Kuching
Wednesday May 25, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...sec=southneast

JOHOR BARU: Budget airline Firefly commenced its inaugural flight from Senai International Airport to Kuching in Sarawak recently.

The twice-daily flight departs from Johor Baru at 7.30am and 6.35pm respectively while the flights from Kuching to Johor Baru are timed at 9.55am and 8.30pm.

The Johor Bahru-Kuching flight marks Firefly’s inaugural route from its southern hub.

From June 16, the airline will commence a twice daily return flight from Johor Bahru to Kota Kinabalu and both East Malaysian routes will operate using the Boeing 737-400 with a seating capacity of 162.

Firefly will go regional from its southern hub in August with flights to Surabaya and Bandung in Indonesia.

The company’s managing director Datuk Eddie Leong said tickets were already for sale and by the end of the year, the airline would commence flights from Johor Baru to Bangkok, Thailand.

“The introduction of Firefly’s services underline our commitment to develop Johor Baru as our southern hub, offering Johoreans more travel choices and contribute significantly to the rapidly developing opportunities in commerce and tourism.

“Johor is a significant part of Firefly’s growth plan as our target market will now expand to mass passengers from the southern region, Singapore, Batam and transit passengers in East Malaysia,” he said.

Additional domestic flights have also been scheduled between Johor Baru and Langkawi as well as Johor Baru and Penang in conjunction with the school holidays in the second quarter of this year.

At Senai, flight FY816 took off at 7.30am with a 70% passenger load and touched down at Kuching International Airport at 8.55am.

The travel trade and media from Johor were among those onboard this inaugural flight.

They were greeted at the airport by children from Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak-Anak Yatim Negeri Sarawak and Salvation Army Kuching Children’s Home.

Sarawak Tourism Board’s CEO Datuk Rashid Khan led the welcoming party and children who greeted the passengers.

“I am pleased to welcome passengers from Johor Baru to Kuching.

“At the same time, I also look forward to travel with Sarawakians to Johor Baru on Firefly’s return flight,” said Rashid.

To date, Firefly has flown 3.6 million passengers. From its southern hub, the airlines is targeting to fly one million passengers by the end of 2012.
