One of the Philippines’ leading budget airlines, Zest Airways, will start flying to Shanghai, the largest city by population in China and in the whole world.
Zest Airways will provide flights to China five times weekly beginning July 25. According to the company, Shanghai is truly a must-see international destination, being the financial and commercial hub of modern China.
“Being a global center of growth, China is an important overseas destination for us to provide at Zest Air,” said Alfredo Herrera, chief marketing and sales officer of Zest Airways.
The company will be deploying its reliable and comfortable Airbus 320 aircrafts for the Manila-Shanghai routes, which has a capacity of 180 seats each.
“Filipinos now can now explore such a historical significant and economically important global city as Shanghai, and at the same time, Manila can also now welcome more international tourists from such a burgeoning foreign growth center,” Herrera said.
Zest Airways is the only Philippine carrier with a direct flight to Jinjang City in Fujian, China as well as flights to other Chinese destinations like Beijing that is serviced from the Kalibo and Cebu airports. The carrier currently flies to over 25 domestic and international destinations.
Zest Airways is also eyeing the resumption of its Hong Kong flights and the opening of its Singapore routes soon.
