AirAsia Zest temporarily suspends flights to Shanghai, Beijing

AIRASIA Zest yesterday announced the suspension of its services from Kalibo (Boracay) to Shanghai and Beijing effective September 18, until further notice.

Affected services include flights 72844 and 72028 from Kalibo to Beijing and Shanghai respectively, as well as flights 72845 and 72029 to Kalibo from Beijing and Shanghai respectively.

The airline said the move was in response to the request of the company that chartered the flights, as well as the travel warning issued by the Chinese government.

China had last Friday warned its citizens not to travel to the Philippines following the abduction of an 18-year-old Chinese in Zamboanga and an alleged plot against the Chinese embassy and Chinese companies in the country.
