Zest Airways launch its newest international destination from Kalibo International Airport (KIA) to Shanghai, China Today for a twice a week A320 service.
The flight, which is scheduled to land at the KIA at 3:00 a,m. Tuesday, will be carrying 180 passengers who will go straight to Caticlan town, gateway to Boracay, and immediately cross over to the world-famous holiday island destination, according to Roselle Ruiz, Aklan’s Provincial Tourism Operations Officer (PTOO).
Ruiz said that this is not the first flight from China with Philippine Airlines taking the initial salvo on chartered flights, but these were stopped temporarily to give way for terminal development implemented at the airport.
Initially, such flights will arrive twice a week starting January 25, but by the end of March, these will be increased to four times weekly says a Zest Air representative.
Zest Air will also be introducing flights from Beijing soon when the airline receive its ordered aircraft.
