Firefly restarting Seletar – Kuala Lumpur flights on 13 June

Singapore's second airport at Seletar will be home to regular scheduled passenger flights again for the first time in over two years, with Firefly reigniting its KL Subang service.

Singapore’s Seletar Airport will once again host regular scheduled passenger flights from mid-June, with former operator Firefly of Malaysia reinstating commuter services to Kuala Lumpur’s convenient Subang Airport.


This will be the first time the passenger terminal at Singapore’s second airport has been brought back into use since flights were withdrawn as COVID-19 took hold, over two years ago.

Services will start at two per day, compared to the six daily links Firefly operated prior to the pandemic, but the airline will likely ramp up flights again in the months ahead, if demand permits.

The airline had previously operated at Changi until 1st December 2018, when turboprops were effectively banned from the airport. There then followed a long-running dispute between Singapore and Malaysia over airspace use, with the green light finally given for the airline to start Seletar – Subang flights on 21st April 2019.

Schedule and fares

Firefly will operate a mid-morning and mid-afternoon departure from Seletar to Subang each weekday, using its 72-seater ATR 72 turboprop, which has a single-class cabin in a 2-2 layout.
