Berjaya Hotels & Resorts (BHR) has announced the launch of its inaugural flight from Subang Airport, Kuala Lumpur (also known as Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport or Subang Skypark Terminal) to Redang Island.
With the new ATR 42-500 aircraft operated and managed by Berjaya Air, travellers can now embark on a seamless journey to experience the crystal-clear water and white powdery sand of Redang Island, where the group owns two resorts, namely The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort and Redang Island Resort.
As a supporter of sea turtle conservation on the island, this aircraft was designed with a special livery featuring a sea turtle with beautiful underwater scenery. It is branded as ‘Jojo’, a name that is inspired by the resident turtle of The Taaras, which resides at the resort’s beach all the time. Guests may have the opportunities to spot Jojo and swim with it when they go snorkelling or diving in the surrounding waters of the resort.
“Our new direct flight will further enhance regional air connectivity and reduce travelling time to Redang Island. With this new flight, total travelling time will be greatly reduced from average four hours to approximately an hour,” said Foo Toon Kee, chief operating officer of BHR.
