Quite a number of readers wrote in asking for information on the Ipoh Airport, so I went to the airport to seek information on flight services. Right now, we only have twice-daily flights to and from Singapore, operated by Firefly, a subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines (MAS).
The Ipoh – Medan flight service offered by Unimaju Fly Travel & Tours (UFTT) ceased in late January, 2012 after about two months because of some technicalities but is expected to resume in late March, 2012. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
In conclusion, at this point in time, the Sultan Azlan Shah Airport only services flights from Ipoh to Singapore and vice versa, which is operated by Firefly.
Judging from the flight schedule below, it is not possible to make a day trip to Singapore and be back to Ipoh on the same day. However, for passengers flying in from Singapore, it is possible to do a quick Ipoh tour and fly home on the same day, thanks to the comfortable interval between flights.
