The interior of the aircraft has a vibrant look and feel with images of Malaysian food, culture, beaches, ecotourism, art, and atmosphere.

In conjunction with the VMY 2020 campaign, Firefly will be offering several new and exciting “Firefly Discovery” packages to domestic destinations across Malaysia throughout the year 2020. Phillip See, CEO of Firefly said, “We are pleased to be part of another milestone in the tourism industry, specifically with regards to Visit Malaysia Year 2020. Domestic travel is the new way of travel as many millennials and foodies prefer traveling locally to experience our national culture and diverse cuisine. We trust that with this launch, it will certainly help fulfill the government’s agenda to stimulate growth in tourist visits through tourism.”.

Firefly Branding Manager, Khoo Sian Chun said “The inspiration behind Firefly’s Discovery campaign is speed, energy, curiosity, and adventure, while Tourism Malaysia’s VM2020 promotes friendliness, color, beauty, and nature, to reflect the country’s diverse local culture. When putting together the different logos and elements, we have to ensure that it conveys the same message, that is, to discover the undiscovered of Malaysia.”.
