DON'T WE LOVE IT WHEN WE HAVE MORE CHOICES?
The entry of AirAsia in the local budget-airline industry has really spiced things up in this country of 7,000+ islands with one of the highest low-cost carrier penetration in the world. We Filipinos love budget airlines and flying has become more exciting now that Air Asia is here as it brings with it many conveniences and advantages.
I have never flown AirAsia before because their hub used to be in Clark. I find it so much of a hassle to go to Manila from Rizal Province and then travel North to Clark. Such a waste of time to a weekend-traveler like me. I am sure many of you can relate.
It certainly is good news that Air Asia Zest is now flying from NAIA-4 Manila!
I remember when we were in The Ruins of St. Paul near Senado Square, my wife wanted to try street food sold nearby the steps of St. Paul's facade but we were in a hurry to meet a friend who works in the city so I told her to try it later. But we got preoccupied the whole day that I forgot my promise to her. She mentioned it to me when we were in Hong Kong, that she felt a little upset that we failed to sample Macau street food. Such simple experiences make my wife happy and I regret denying her that simple joy.
Fly direct to Miri Malaysia
I am also excited to try their new destination like Miri Malaysia. Miri is the second largest city in Sarawak Malaysia and it is home to many Forest Reserves/National Parks. Miri is the gateway to Sarawak Chamber which is the largest known cave chamber in the world.in the world. Cool.
No other airline flies you from Manila direct to Miri but Air Asia Zest.
Of course there are other popular international destinations like Shanghai and Seoul South Korea. It's nice to know that Air Asia Zest provides an alternative to flying in these popular cities. Hope to fly to Korea finally in 2014.

Those in Cebu should also be happy. Air Asia Zest provides more connectivity to flying out of Cebu direct to other famous tourist spots in the country like Puerto Princesa, Davao and Cagayan de Oro. That means you don't have to go through Manila to get to these places. Really nice.

THE AIR ASIA ADVANTAGE
All-in, mean All-in
Air Asia Zest gives so much flexibility to budget travelers like me. Say for instance, when they say "all-in", they mean it. Unlike other airlines, the more you click into the booking process, the more expensive their published rates become.
That's a lot of connectivity!
