The Penang Matta Fair 2008 is offering 100,000 free tickets from community airline Firefly to fly to six of its destinations.
Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (Matta) Penang chairman Ann G.H. Tan said the offer was aimed at drawing more visitors to the fair to be held at the Penang International Sports Arena from July 4 to 7.
Firefly, which is owned by Malaysia Airlines System Bhd (MAS), is among the main sponsors of the Penang Matta Fair.
It plies the Subang-Penang route and also flies to Langkawi, Kota Baru, Kuala Terengganu, Kuantan, Koh Samui and Phuket.
Tan said in a statement yesterday that besides the free air tickets for lucky visitors, the fair would also feature some interesting side activities and offer attractive discounts for tour packages as well as lucky draws.
She said there would be 281 booths, including 36 manned by travel agents and 74 on tourism promotion.
Meanwhile, the fair organisers are trying to get the cooperation of RapidPenang to provide free bus transport for visitors to the fair
