Some months back, I joined some fellow media pals on a 3,2,1-STOP @ BHR
trip by Berjaya Hotels and Resorts (BHR). The first of the many posts to come will be on my experience on Berjaya Air which flew us to Penang and Langkawi.
It was a new experience for me as this was my first on a private charter. Yes, the folks at BHR actually chartered from Berjaya Air the ATR 72-500
which sits 72 passengers for the 35 of us. Some may argue its quite a waste as BHR could have chartered the Dash 7 which sits 48 passengers. We are told its for our comfort plus the spare seats could be useful for our shopping...I like that thought!
Some pics of our flights...

lots of empty seats for our shopping haul
our friendly cabin crew for the day
Hoegaarden was our regular drink on most days.
As I pen this, Berjaya Air overseas routes are Koh Samui and Singapore. The local destinations are Langkawi, Pangkor, Redang and Tioman. Penang should be on the list real soon. You may get more information and updates on www.berjaya-air.com
