Although AirAsia Zest was recently forced to cancel its Cebu-Kuala Lumpur flights to support expansion elsewhere, its Malaysia based parent, AirAsia Berhad, has decided to restore the direct link using its own aircraft.

In a statement released earlier this week, AirAsia of Malaysia said that it will resume direct flights betwen Cebu and Kuala Lumpur beginning on July 24. Flights will be operated three times per week making AirAsia the only carrier offering direct service between Kuala Lumpur and Cebu. Flights will depart every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. 
"As a truly low cost airline, AirAsia is committed towards our tagline, 'Now Everyone Can Fly' and connecting communities in the region," said Spencer Lee, AirAsia's Head of Commercial Operations. "We have created new markets for various destinations that we serve, and Cebu will be no different as it is the gateway to many adventure activities and enables visitors to delve into the history and culture of the Philippines." He added that AirAsia is proud to continue operating this route as part of its network of exciting destinations. 
The addition of Cebu brings AirAsia's portfolio of Philippine destinations served direct from Kuala Lumpur up to three cities including Kalibo and Manila. As the oldest city in the Philippines, Cebu has much to offer for all visitors. A number of activities exist including island hopping in the Malapascua Islands, swimming with whale sharks in Oslob, and sampling Cebu's famous lechon. 
Cebu is also just a short distance from the nearby island of Bohol which gives visitors an opportunity to visit the famous Chocolate Hills. Malaysia based AirAsia owns 40 percent of AirAsia Philippines, which owns 49 percent of AirAsia Zest. The Philippine based budget carrier is currently planning a massive expansion at Kalibo International Airport pending the further expansion of infrastructure at the airport.
