FY1002 / MH9948 Incident

Subang, 24 April 2014 : Firefly Airlines would like to confirm that Flight FY1002, a codeshare with Malaysia Airlines Flight MH9948, that departed Penang International Airport (PEN) at 6:55am bound for Kota Bharu earlier had turned back and landed safely in Penang at 7.30am, today.

This was because the aircraft's landing gear was unable to retract after being airborne. As safety is of utmost priority to Firefly Airlines, the aircraft was required to turn back to Penang. This was a normal landing, therefore Airport Fire Rescue Services was not required to be deployed.

All 64 passengers and 4 crew members on board have disembarked from the aircraft. FY1002/MH9948 was retimed and departed from Penang at 8:50am on 24 April 2014 and arrived safely in Kota Bharu at 9.50am the same day.


On behalf of all of us at Firefly Airlines, Malaysia Airlines and all Malaysians, our prayers go out to all the loved ones of the 226 passengers and of our 13 friends and colleagues.

We humbly offer our sincere thoughts, prayers and condolences to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy.

May we ask you to join us in a moment of silence in remembrance of MH370.
