Not To Miss: Emirates Economy Class Fare Between Singapore and Penang

The fares for Business Class and First Class is pretty much extravagance for a 1hr 20mins flight. What is worth noticing is the economy class fares, currently priced at SGD $118 r/t.

Singapore – Penang route is predominately operated by the A320 or the B737, mostly by the budget carriers or the mediocre Silk Air (a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines). At $118 (including weekends) you get to enjoy a free meal, in-flight entertainment, larger legroom and 25kg baggage allowance. Budget carriers are pricing their tickets for around $200 over the weekends.
