25 AUGUST 2015, SUBANG – Firefly Airlines today revealed the much-anticipated Grand Prize winners of its ‘Fly Firefly & Win a BMW' campaign at a ceremony held at Firefly's Headquarters in Subang today.
Firefly CEO, Mr. Ignatius Ong said, “As we had just recently celebrated Merdeka Day and Malaysia Day is right around the corner, in the spirit of promoting travel within the country, Firefly is offering these incredible rates to the everyone in Malaysia. Furthermore, this is also a great opportunity for families who wish to go on family-trips within the country during the coming school holidays, which falls on 19th to 27th of September.”
Firefly's Chief Executive Officer, Ignatius Ong said, "If you booked Firefly tickets anywhere between 18 May and 2 August 2915, you were in the running to win a BMW 320i Sport Line car.
This high-visibility campaign was organized as a way to reward our passengers for flying with us and over 50,000 entries were received." Ong added.
Over the course of the campaign, ten (10) lucky winners were chosen each week to win Firefly Cash Vouchers worth RM100 each. Weekly winners were announced every Monday in Firefly’s website and one (1) of Malaysia's leading newspapers. For the final draw, four (4) Grand Finale winners were chosen culminating in a brand new BMW 320i Sports Line car for one (1) lucky passenger, Mr. Liang Yee Kai, a 29 year-old certified financial planner from Pulau Pinang.
Liang flew four times with Firefly during the campaign period and sent an entry each time.
"As a financial planner, I have to travel all over the country to meet my clients. Firefly has always been my airline of choice due to its flight frequency, convenient city airport location in Subang, good punctuality record and competitive price. So when the “Fly Firefly & Win a BMW" campaign was launched, I did not hesitate to book all my flights to Kuala Lumpur on Firefly as all I needed to do was to send a short text message to participate in the draw.
I could not believe my ears when I received the phone call to inform that I had won the BMW 320i. My first thought was - this must a prank call from one of the local radio stations! It took several minutes for the Firefly representative to calm me down and convince me that this was not a joke,” said Liang when asked about his reaction to winning the luxury car.
Liang explained that one of the first things he would like to do upon receiving his new orange car is to take it for a spin around Pulau Pinang island.
"I would like to congratulate Mr. Liang Yee Kai as today he will be driving home the one-of-its-kind BMW 320i Sport Line custom-painted with Firefly colours. This campaign was just one of the many promotional activities that we have planned for 2015. Please continue to fly with Firefly and check us out on our Facebook page regularly or sign up as a member today to make sure that you don't miss out on any of these exciting activities" said Ong.
The three (3) remaining Grand Finale prizes were Mr. Ng Khai Ming, Mr. Shamsul Bahrin Bin Abdullah and Ms. Sri Kiruthyha Murugesan. Please see the enclosed List of Winners for details.
