It seems that the clean-up in the Philippines sky is progressing faster than expected. During the last weeks all domestic airlines continued flooding potential customers with promos. Any trick had been right to get a bit more passengers in the aircraft.
AirAsia Zest is continuing to realign their operation because of over-capacity in the domestic market. According to a source from AirAsia Zest, the airline already suspended its Bacolod and Iloilo flights last year and will reduce its Davao flight frequency to six flights a week from seven. And now they announce that they cease Cagayan de Oro operations effective March 30, 2014.
There will be 8 flights less in and out of Laguindingan airport per day. This reduction makes of CGY/RPMY still more a provincial airfield.
AirAsia Zest is reducing the number of aircraft to 14 in order to remove excess capacity from domestic routes while building more international routes out of Manila and Kalibo. Kalibo has been positioned as a hub to enter into Southern China and Korea. This will bring still more Chinese and Korean tourists to Boracay.
