Malaysian carrier, the online airline to offer turboprop flights to Singapore, has resumed its daily flight between Subang and Singapore’s Seletar Airport.
On Monday, April 22, Seletar Airport welcomed the inaugural flight by FireflyFY3126 from Subang to Seletar at about 10.50am.
Some 72 passengers were on board the flight, including Malaysia’s Minister for Transport, Mr Anthony Loke and his accompanying delegation. They were greeted by Singapore’s Minister for Transport, Mr Khaw Boon Wan, according to a press release by Changi Airport Group (CAG).
Firefly will be operating a twice-daily Subang-Seletar service – using ATR 72-500 turboprops – from April 21-28. This will be increased to six daily services from April 29.
CAG added that Seletar Airport’s new passenger terminal offers improved facilities for passengers, including more check-in counters and ample seating in the departure gate holdroom.
A café in the departure area serves refreshments and quick bites to passengers, while a garden courtyard adds elements of nature to the cozy seating area in the same space. The two-storey terminal also features more spacious arrival immigration, baggage claim and meeters-and-greeters halls.
Seletar Airport is served by public bus service 102, with the bus stop conveniently located 50 metres from the terminal and accessible via a sheltered walkway.
The bus service connects the airport to Hougang Central Bus Interchange, Sengkang MRT station and Jalan Kayu. The terminal is also accessible by taxis and private hire cars.
