Last November 7,2013, I was invited by AirAsia Zest along with other travel and lifestyle bloggers for a dinner party at New Orleans in Bonifacio High Street. During the event, Jonathan Yabut – the first ‘Apprentice Asia’ winner gave us a brief presentation about AirAsia’s plans and other updates.

AirAsia Zest now in Manila

After the recent AirAsia Zest rebranding campaign, Zest Air is not just changing their name. They’ve changed a lot about the way they do things, and the results are really promising. Some rebranding campaigns don’t focus enough on the substance of a brand and just change their name in an effort to get away from prior associates. The best part now is having AirAisa as their strategic partner and that makes them one step closer to becoming the Philippines largest low cost airline.

An Asian Focus

AirAsia offers flights to over 85 destinations across Asia, to and from the Philippines, as well as flights within the country at rates that are absolutely irresistible. You want to fly to and from Manila with a decent carrier with low rates? AirAsia Zest is filling that particular niche.

Air Asia Zest in Manila Air Asia Zest in Manila Within the Philippines there are a number of airports covered, including Manila and Cebu as the primary and secondary hubs, Davao, Tagbilaran, Cagayan de Oro, Puerto Princesa, and Kalibo-Boracay. They’re likely to add more destinations, too.

AirAsia in Cebu

AirAsia Zest and AirAsia Philippines has made Cebu their secondary hub in the Philippines, as Cebu is such a popular international destination and because having Clark as their secondary hub would limit their hubs to the northern parts of Philippines. Instead, they’ve chosen Cebu which gives access to the rest of the country.

AirAsia Zest - The Right Way to Fly AirAsia Zest – The Right Way to Fly

Malaysia Connection

AirAsia Zest has made a direct connection between the Philippines and Malaysia’s Miri International airport. This connection makes it possible for people to fly to many other Asian destinations, as Miri is an Asian hub for both AirAsia and other carriers in the region. In addition, there is a lot of traffic between Philippines and Miri for Filipino people who work in Miri. The traffic between Manila and Miri is very high, and people are looking for a cheap way to make the trip, especially if they’re doing it often for business. AirAsia Zest saw the opportunity and has made this route a priority.

New Routes, New Standards

AirAsia Zest has been working hard to build a solid reputation for a reasonable but comfortable budget airline. All too often, budget carriers don’t take care of passengers and have frustrating restrictions that make it unattractive to fly with them. AirAsia Zest has attempted to make changes which will benefit passengers, both in terms of routes and in terms of the standards they uphold.

You’ll be treated well on board and you’ll find yourself enjoying these quick but affordable flights. They’ve set the standard for budget airlines and I’m really excited for my future flights with Air Asia. As per my previous AirAsia Zest flight experience, I noticed that their service is now pretty much the same with AirAsia.. Its impressive, fast and efficient. I just hope that self-check-in via web, mobile or kiosks will be available for AirAsia Zest flights too. Maybe soon?

Helping Out During the Typhoon

And in an unprecedented move, but one which we can all appreciate, Air Asia Zest provided free airlift for relief goods and some volunteers to areas affected by the disaster. AirAsia in partnership with Tune Hotels also initiated a donation and relief drive called “To Philippines with Love” aimed at helping typhoon Yolanda devastated communities in central Philippines. Finally, An airline with a big heart! Book now at www.AirAsia.com.
