Seletar Airport welcomes first commercial flight since March 2020

Malaysian airline Firefly will resume its Kuala Lumpur-Singapore flights.

Seletar Airport welcomed its first commercial flight since March 2020 with the arrival of Malaysian airline, Firefly, in the port on 13 June.

Firefly’s FY3124 arrived at the airport with 59 passengers on board from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport.

The Malaysian airline also announced that it will resume its Kuala Lumpur-Singapore flights from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport to Seletar Airport, respectively.

As a reopening gift, Firefly said all its passengers travelling to and from Seletar will enjoy a 20kg complimentary baggage allowance, and complimentary in-flight refreshments onboard. 

Firefly’s maiden flight to Seletar was in April 2019, but its operations to and from the airport were halted in March 2020 due to the pandemic.

“Singapore has become one of the important destinations for us, connecting passengers of leisure and business. Hence, this recommencement will be able to connect passengers from both countries, whilst enhancing the economy via the tourism industry,” said Firefly CEO Philip See.

In preparation for Firefly's return, as well as other flight schedules, Changi Airport Group (CAG), which manages Seletar Airport, said it conducted multiple operational trials and system tests with the airport’s partners.

“Airport staff also participated in refresher training sessions and briefings on operational and safety requirements to prepare them to serve passengers. CAG has engaged taxi companies to raise awareness of Firefly’s resumption of flights. Taxi drivers that make the trip to Seletar Airport to pick up passengers will also enjoy free coffee and tea in June,” CAG said.

Passengers travelling must be fully vaccinated and comply with all standard operating procedures (SOP) set by both countries before booking. International flights are subject to local government and regulatory approval.
