Holidaymakers planning to take flights to Thailand and other Asian destinations could benefit from the introduction of two new budget airlines.
Firefly’s director Eddy Leong explained the airline will be offering new services to Kuching and Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia as well as expanding flights to Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia.
Meanwhile, Thailand’s carrier Thai Airways is set launch a budget subsidiary in May next year. Thai Tiger will offer new routes within Thailand as well as entering into the international low-cost fare market.
