A KL Trip To Remember: When Zest Air flies to Kota Kinabalu and Kuala Lumpur

It is indeed a good news that Zest Air is now expanding.  Three destinations are now added in their flights, Kota Kinabalu and Kuala Lumpur for their international flight and Bacolod for domestic flight in which these three flights are coming from Manila. 

Last friday (May 10, 2013), I was so lucky to be part of Team Kuala's Familiarization Tour to Malaysia, and one of the first to experience Zest Air's inaugural flight to KL.

Our flight Z2948 left Manila at 6:45AM bound to Kuala Lumpur's LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal) at 10:25AM while flight Z2501 bound for Kota Kinabalu left the NAIA T4 at 9:35AM together with Jim Paredes.  

I have lot of friends currently working in Malaysia.  Aside from work and business, tourism is also expected to growth according to the Director of Tourism Malaysia Philippines.

"Tourism Malaysia is delighted that Zest Air is launching its maiden flights to Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu.  This initiative certainly comes at the perfect time since Malaysia will be celebrating its fourth Visit Malaysia Year (VMY) in 2014 and this year has been designated as the VMY promotional campaign year.  We seek to attract more tourists from the Philippines to Malaysia.  Last year, the country welcomed 508,744 Filipino tourists, which was a growth of 40.5% compared to 362,101 Filipino tourists in 2011.  I am confident that this enhanced connectivity will be able to boost tourist arrivals from the Philippines to Malaysia," said Ms. Fazdilla Mansor, the Director of Tourism Malaysia Manila

We noticed that flight crews were in red uniform.  It happens that Zest Air now has strategic alliance with Air Asia PH boosting up an improved low cost airline in terms of in-flight, service, etc.

Seat Sale Alert!
Zest Air still have one-peso promo fares from Manila to KL, Kota Kinabalu, Shanghai, Cebu, Davao, Puerto Princesa, Kalibo, Iloilo, Tagbilaran, Tacloban, Bacolod, Davao, Cebu and CDO.

Booking Period: May 13-19, 2013
Travel Period: May 10, 2013 to April 30, 2014

Zest Air flights to Kuala Lumpur - daily

I have no idea at all what to expect in Malaysia.  But I'm really glad I was able to explore Kuala Lumpur in few days. Batu Caves. Petronas Tower. King's Palace. Museum. Foodtrip. Happiness!  Really, a KL Trip To Remember.   :)
