Zest Air, formerly Asian Spirit, is now back to serving the Zamboanga-Sandakan route. This is definitely good news for travelers who want a faster way to reach Sandakan, Malaysia…and hopefully a way to discourage people from using the back border.
The Zamboanga-Sandakan route is in consonance with the continuing confidence in the potentials of trade, tourism and investment in the Brunei Darussalam-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA). Zest Air is now plying the said route three times a week.

This Zamboanga to Sandakan, Malaysia route is, I believe, Zest Air’s first international flight here in Mindanao. The airline company currently serves flights to Hongkong and soon in Japan, Incheon Korea (December 4, 2009). Check out Zest Air’s website to know more.
