Happy days are here again, we have commercial flights to the petrochem centre of the East Coast, Kerteh.
Extracting from the Star, January 10th 2009:
PETALING JAYA: Budget airline Firefly will now fly to Kerteh in Terengganu twice daily from Subang.
Firefly managing director Eddy Leong said in a statement that the route was the company’s way of committing itself to providing alternative and affordable travel for all Malaysians.
“In addition, the Kerteh route will add convenience to leisure travellers. Well known tourism spots such as Kijal and Cherating are just a few minutes drive from Kerteh.”
Leong said Kerteh would be the airline’s second destination in Terengganu after the state capital.
Here is the preliminary announcement about Firefly’s service. FY 2003(a) departs Kerteh at 0750, FY2007(a) departs Kerteh at 1820. I sure hope the flight stewardesses are nicer than the ones on the MHS charter flight.
Now all Synergy needs is more work down there…
