Firefly has pitched many parts of Malaysia beautifully as one big home in a 7.28-minute video recently. The 100% Malaysian airline proudly takes one to the many different heart beats of Malaysia which tells a story about how beautiful Malaysia is via this uniquely done video, titled Firefly – A Symbol of a #TrueMalaysian Pride.

“It is not always about the skyscrapers and expensive restaurants. There is more to it that even we Malaysians tend to overlook at times. This video is our stake in the ground about who we are and what makes Malaysia unique in the world as a place to visit, meet and explore,” said Ignatius Ong, CEO of Firefly Airlines.
The video, produced in-house by the airline’s Marketing & Communications team, begins with words that touch many hearts of Malaysians such as the need to put the negativities aside, having the feeling of belongingness and togetherness with all Malaysians. It states that Firefly will stand tall, united and will make our “home” proud. The video then moves on to showcase Faruq Suhaimi, a professional dancer, telling the places of interests’ stories through dance and his interesting moves, which would definitely make it a catch for local and foreign tourists to plan their holidays according to their specific interests.
