Firefly Aims To Become Profitable Next Year


KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 19 -- Community airline, Firefly, aims to become profitable by the next financial year ending Dec 31, 2009, its managing director Eddy Leong said Friday.

He said Firefly's new generation turboprop aircraft would help it save cost, increase seat capacity and help it turn around in the long run.

"Firefly is also targeting 1.5 million passengers next year," he told reporters at the company's buka puasa here Friday.

Leong said the airline has taken delivery of two aircraft and expected another three this year with five more in 2009.

He said the ten new-generation turboprop aircraft cost the company US$186 million (US$1=RM3.42).

Leong said the airline, which faced trying times this year, had no plan to revamp its fare structure.

"We have been maintaining the same fare structure even with the recent fuel increase. There is no need for drastic changes," he said.

He said even with the higher fuel prices, people still preferred travelling by air.

Leong said Firefly would also be adding new routes -- between Subang-Johor Baharu, Subang-Pekan Baru, Subang-Medan, and Subang-Koh Samui -- effective Oct 26.
