Zest Air Promo Flights Online Booking Guide

Zest Airways, also known as Zest Air, is a Philippine-based budget airline serving more than 20 domestic destinations as well as major cities in South East Asia, particularly in China, Korea, and Malaysia.

The airline captures a large chunk of the Philippine market because of its cheap year round fares and even cheaper flights during frequent promo seat sale.

In mid-2013, Zest Air and AirAsia Philippines underwent a joint venture, which made it possible to book ZestAir flights on AirAsia’s website.

1. Find Promos

Zest Air promos are posted at Zest Air’s official website. All running seat sales are conveniently displayed on the front page. You can click the promo advert or visit the weekly promos page to see all promo flights currently offered.

Fares prominently listed on weekly promos page are one-way base fares. Hover your mouse over the “breakdown” text to view an estimate of additional airport and government taxes.

You can also view two important details about the promo, particularly:

  • Selling period – specifies the dates when the promo fare is available for booking. You need to book your flight before the end of the selling period to avail of the promo flights.
  • Travel period – refers to the departure date of Zest Air flights included in the promo. If you want to book the promo fares, your planned travel dates should be within the travel period indicated. If you are flying later than the travel period, Zest Air frequently offer seat sales, so watchout for future promo announcements.

2. Search Promo Flights

Use Zest Air’s online flight search labeled “Book & Buy” to see if the promo fares are available. Select your destination and travel dates and click the search button.

Your browser will be redirected to AirAsia’s website, where you can see all flights available on your travel dates. Promo fares are listed under the “Promo” column on the left side.

If you only see a dash and no promo fares, all the promo seats might already be  sold out on that particular day/flight. Try searching on other dates.

Fares posted on the flight result page should be the all-in fare. This fare still does not include optional add-ons such as check-in baggage or meal add-ons.

3. Book Promo Fares

The process of booking flights is the same a booking regular Zest Air flights. Most passengers book online for convenience but you can also visit or contact any Zest Air ticketing office, or AirAsia’s offices.

Aside from major credit cards, AirAsia also accepts payment through direct debit, ATM, and “over the counter.” View a list of all payment channels at AirAsia’s website.
