Air Asia Zest In Hot Water Again

11 July 2014

Air Asia Zest is in hot water again and may face possible suspension orders from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAAP) for fielding a defective aircraft to its fleet.

One of Air Asia's A320 planes (RP-C8986) was reported by passengers to have a malfunctioning auxiliary power unit since July 1 but the airline was able to fly the plane until Wednesday July 9.

The CAA said that the airline should never have flown the plane with the defective APU as it put safety of passengers at risk.


  1. If APU is out its NO GO per regulations

  2. APU out is dispatch-able per MEL. & it is CAT "D"
