The airline's headquarter in Malaysia is located in Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (Subang Skypark) in Kuala Lumpur. The hub is located in Penang International Airport in Penang Island.

On 11 Agustus 2008, Firefly replaced its Fokker 50 with five ATR 72-500s. In December 2008, Fokker F50 was discontinued. On 18 December 2012, Firefly received 20 ATR 72-600s from MASwings, another subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines. By September 2014, Firefly had operated 12 ATR72-500s.
