Malaysia – A View from the Airplane Window

This is my one of trip back from Penang to Kuala Lumpur using flight. As flights were getting more affordable (provided you book early) it is more convenient to fly than to take a bus which may even cost more. Malaysia have a lot of choices of flights to choose from such as Firefly, Berjaya Airlines and Malindo which flies to Subang Skypark, and Airasia to LCCT. Flight time is usually around 45mins to 1 hr whereas a bus trip will take about 4 to 5 hours.

In the Firefly ATR 72-500 propeller plane taxing to take off.

A nice shot from the airplane window overlooking the 2nd Penang Bridge link; which is 24km long (land and sea) which is expected to be open in Nov 2014 linking the island to the mainland at Batu Kawan.

The Island of Pulau Jerejak which is a short 5min ferry ride from the island. This island was formerly the main leper asylum for The Straits Settlements (1868), then Quarantine Station(1875) and later penal colony (1969) for the ISA detainees. Now, it has been converted to a resort which is facing the island side. While the other side of the island of Jerejak is a shipyard.

Catching my flight @ Skypark

Got up early to catch my flight back to Penang last weekend. It was my first time trying out the Berjaya Airlines from Skypark; another carrier which is opening up more route around Peninsular Malaysia. Aside from this airlines, there is also Firefly Airlines and those private jets or helicopters using this airport.

The shops in the airport were still close when I checked in as it was still very early.

Information and taxi counter.
