Zest Air offers to transfer relief goods

Rains from the heavens swamped Metro Manila and nearby provinces, but help may also well come from the skies.
 
This, as budget carrier Zest Air offered to transfer relief goods to Metro Manila from other parts of the country.
 
In a statement on Wednesday, ZestAir said groups that wish to send assistance to flood victims may do so via through the airline.
 
“Zest Air provincial cargo stations will start accepting relief goods and donations for free airlift to Metro Manila starting today, 21 August,” the airline said.
 
These stations are located in Cebu, Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Kalibo, Iloilo, Bacolod, Tagbilaran, Puerto Princesa and Tacloban.
 
Groups only need to send an e-mail to Zest Air head of cargo team Ernest Bernal at mnlcargo@flyzest.com, the airline noted.
 
“Relief goods should be packed in boxes with a list of items, their estimate value, size and weight in kilos,” Zest Air said further.
 
Benefactors should also indicate the complete contact details of their counterpart organizations or consignees.
 
The statement comes only a day after the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines lifted its suspension on some of the budget carrier’s planes.
“Zest Air has resumed some of its international flights yesterday and including domestic destinations August 21,” the statement read.
 
It added that other flights will be continued as soon as the inspection of all its 11 aircraft has been completed.
 
Flights that remain suspended included Manila to China, South Korea, Malaysia as well as to Kalibo, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Bacolod, Tagbilaran, Tacloban, Cagayan de Oro and Puerto Princesa.
