Firefly has reached the skies

Talk about costs savings. Firefly's uniform is just a black t-shirt and brown pants. You can fly to Kota Baru, Kuala Terengganu, Kuantan and Langkawi (all twice daily) from Penang using Firefly as of today. Langkawi will only costs you RM 9 while the fare for the rest of the destionations are only RM 29. Koh Samui and Phuket will only cost RM 39 and this service will start on 13 April.

The Star printed this paragraph in its paper today, "These are the special introductory fares that passengers can enjoy on the new Firefly service. Operating from the Penang International Airport today, the airline is expected to give no-frills leader AirAsia competition in some areas."

Eh, I thought Firefly is supposed to cover destinations not covered by any other airlines at the moment. AirAsia flies to Bangkok, KK, JB, KL and Kuching out of Penang at the moment. Does this mean Firefly will also fly to any one of these locations as well? Only time will tell.
