AirAsia Zest

Low Cost Carrier
Ceased Operations on 07-Dec-2015
ICAO: n/a


AirAsia Zest, formally Zest Air, was a LCC based in Manila. With hubs at Diosdado Macapagal International Airport, Kalibo International Airport and Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport, AirAsia Zest used a fleet of narrow-body A320 aircraft to serve a network of domestic and regional destinations within the Philippines and Asia. AirAsia Philippines owned a 49% stake in the carrier, whilst the remaining 51% stake was owned by Ambassador Alfred Yao. On 10-May-2013, AirAsia Group announced plans to integrate Philippines AirAsia into Zest in order to maximise fleet utilisation between both carriers and slot allocations from Manila. The two carriers previously operated under separate Air Operator's Certificates until Sep-2015. During the period, AirAsia Zest was considered an affiliate airline of AirAsia Philippines. In Dec-2015, Philippines AirAsia and AirAsia Zest successfully merged into a single entity and operate under a single AOC.
