PETALING JAYA, MALAYSIA: Travellers will now be able to enjoy zero air fare for Firefly's surplus tickets under the airline's Totally Un-fare promotion.
Firefly managing director Eddy Leong said travellers need to pay only the administration fees and airport tax for the unutilised tickets.
There is an average of 40% surplus tickets for any one flight, but travellers would have to book their journey at least 21 days in advance to enjoy the promotion.
However, he said, those who travel during peak periods, including festive seasons, and school and year-end holidays would have to pay the normal fare.
"The new fare structure is to encourage people to travel during off-peak periods to regional and domestic destinations," he said at a press conference here yesterday.
Leong said the surplus tickets would be made available based on the company's forecast and market feedback.
The cheapest deals start from RM35(S$14.5), for a one-way ticket from Subang to Penang, Kota Baru, Kuala Terengganu or Langkawi.
Travellers can start booking their tickets from today till Dec 23.
The travel period will be between Jan 1 and April 30.
Leong also announced the removal of fuel surcharge on all tickets to all Firefly's destinations, both domestic and international.
Travellers are expected to save RM27 on each one-way ticket for domestic destinations while the fuel surcharge savings varies for international destinations.
