AirAsia Zest Adds New Kalibo-Taipei Flights, Cuts Cebu Operations

AirAsia Zest announced earlier this week that it will be boosting its international operations with the launch of a brand new daily direct service between Kalibo and Taipei. A second daily flight will also be added between Manila and Seoul Incheon in Korea beginning in May.

According to Joy Caneba, Chief Operating Officer of AirAsia Zest, the Manila-Incheon route will be increased to twice daily service on May 1, while the new daily direct service between Kalibo and Taipei is set to launch on April 15.

"Our new daily double services between Manila and Incheon open up new affordable access between countries especially this summer when more and more Koreans are looking forward to bask in the Philippine sun while Filipinos are equally excited about the pleasant weather in Seoul and its modern skyscrapers, majestic palace, shopping districts and historical attractions," said Caneba. "AirAsia Zest's newest routes seek to better serve our overseas Filipinos while helping drive tourist traffic by providing more low-cost options for travel."

Meanwhile, the AirAsia route network re-alignment continues with the suspension of the following routes effective March 30 from AirAsia's hubs in Manila and Cebu: Manila-Cagayan de Oro, Cebu-Davao, Cebu-Puerto Princesa, Cebu-Cagayan de Oro, Cebu-Kota Kinabalu.

On May 1, AirAsia Zest will increase service between Manila and Kalibo to nine flights daily. Manila to Puerto Princesa will be increased to three flights daily, while Cebu, Davao, and Tacloban will all be served with two flights daily from NAIA Terminal 4. Tagbilaran Airport in Bohol will also be served with three daily flights effective May 1.

While AirAsia continues to review its route network, Tigerair Philippines is already making adjustments to its route network now that it is owned by Cebu Pacific. The airline will be suspending its recently launched route between Clark and Davao effective March 30 after less than four months of operation. Tigerair Philippines had just relaunched flights between Clark and Davao on December 17 with three weekly flights. Under the ownership of Cebu Pacific, the airline has reduced its fleet from five to four aircraft forcing several schedule adjustments.
