Zest Air successfully made its maiden flight from Manila to Kota Kinabalu in Sabah last Friday morning – May 9, 2013. Zest Air flight Z2501 left Manila’s NAIA Terminal 4 (old domestic airport) 15 minutes past 9 am.
Together with the Zest Air staff, fellow bloggers and celebrity-singer Mr. Jim Paredes, we arrived in Kota Kinabalu safely and was welcomed by the Sabah Tourism Board. Aside from Kota Kinabalu, they also re-launched the maiden Zest Air flight from Manila to Kuala Lumpur and added a new domestic route, Manila to Bacolod.
According to Ms. Fazdila Mansor, Director of Tourism Malaysia Manila, Zest Air’s inaugural flights to Kota Kinabalu and Kuala Lumpur came at a good time since the country will be celebrating its 4th Visit Malaysia Year (VMY) in 2014 and this year has been designated as the VMY promotional campaign
Daily service to KL will bring travelers to the famous Petronas Twin Towers, theme parks, and shopping centers. On the other hand, people who loves adventure and other natural wonders can go to KK for the Mount Kinabalu and more. Zest Air flies to KK every Tues, Wed, Fri and Sunday.
