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
