Firefly continues its regular flights to Ko Samui while aiming to increase the flight frequency in October.

According to Firefly’s Head of Marketing and Communication Angelina C Fernandez, the number of passengers traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Ko Samui in Surat Thani province remains unaffected by the Thai political situation. The airline currently sees an average passenger volume of 75% on weekdays and full bookings on most weekends. Ms Fernandez explained that this was because Firefly headed straight to Ko Samui without stopping by in any rally-affected zones.

The marketing chief added that, in October this year, the airline planned to increase its flights to Ko Samui from four flights per week to seven, expecting to help promote tourism between the popular island of Thailand and the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur.

Firefly, a subsidiary of Malaysian Airlines, also flies from Penang to Phuket, besides its Kuala Lumpur-Ko Samui route.
