Hailed an Uber ride to the airport at less than half the price of the overpriced airport taxis. Checked in an hour before departure. Boarding pass was printed on a receipt paper. There is only a single shop, selling local confectionary, in the terminal building and no other shops after immigration and security. Hence, it is advisable not to arrive at the airport too early as there is literally nothing to do.
FIDS and the tiny departure lounge after security.
Our aircraft arrived 5min late from SIN.
16 July 2017 Firefly FY 3547 Ipoh (IPH) - Singapore (SIN) ATR 72-500 9M-FYL Economy Class Flight Time: 1H28M
Taxi to the parking stand. Firefly's newest ATR72-500 (Firefly has reduced its fleet and withdrew its entire new ATR72-600 fleet from service) would be operating this flight.
Barely 10min after the aircraft had parked and incoming passengers disembarked, boarding was called. We made the leisurely walk along the tarmac to the aircraft.
Cabin shot. The flight would be more full than the incoming.

Again, once the last passenger boarded, doors were closed and safety demonstration performed.
Taxi out for departure.
And a very powerful departure out of Rwy22.
Climbing out of Ipoh.
Shortly after, the refreshment service started. On the flight, the meal cart was used and hot beverages were offered as well.
The great cabin crew offered me one each of all the available snack choices of curry puff, muffin and peanuts! Snack feast onboard!
Had a hot tea to go with the snacks.

Descending into Singapore. We flew a long approach pattern along the southern coast of Singapore, passing Batam and Bintan, before heading up north and approaching from the north.
Approaching and landing into Singapore Rwy20C.
Parked at the remote stand for disembarkation.

It was again a smooth and comfortable ride on Firefly with very good service and offerings on this short-haul route. Definitely looking forward to fly with Firefly again in the near future!
