It's now Easier to FLY AIR ASIA because #AirAsiaZest is in Manila!

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 wanna fly back to Macau via Air Asia Zest!

Macau Route
Learning that Air Asia Zest will be flying to Macau China starting this December makes me wanna bring my wife to Macau again. I remember 2011, it was our second out-of-the-country trip and Macau certainly enticed us. Its mix of heritage buildings dating back Portuguese colonial era and modern skyscrapers. Macau is a blend of old and new, east and west.

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.

AirAsia Zest continues to expand its regional network with the introduction of its latest direct flights from Manila to Macau.

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 the world. Cool.

No other airline flies you from Manila direct to Miri but Air Asia Zest.

AirAsia Zest opens direct Manila to Miri, Malaysia route

Explore the spectacular rainforest, national parks, a UNESCO World Heritage Site 
and many more ecotourism attractions for only Php460, all-in, one way.

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.

Cebu Hub (Mactan Cebu International Airport).

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.

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.

AirAsia + Zest Air = AirAsiaZest
and more Connectivity

Air Asia Philippines has done significant stride since acquiring controlling stake in Zest Air. It then re-branded into #AirAsiaZest as it brings with it the benefits of flying the world's best low-cost Carrier. Air Asia group operates scheduled domestic and international flights to 85 destinations spanning 25 countries.

That's a lot of connectivity!
