AN OFFICIAL of AirAsia Zest said the safety of the airline’s passengers is its "utmost priority."

"My commitment to the public is that everyone in my staff has safety as priority so we always look at it and improve our system. Accidents (involving the airl;ine group) do not held us back, it actually wants us to push stronger and push harder look at more ways and look at more processes and train people," AirAsia Zest CEO Joy C. Caneba said Friday.

The airline has been operating for five years in the country.


"Can I guarantee safe operations to the best of our abilities? Yes. But running an airline, there are so many external factors and so many circumstances that may put anything at risk but comparing the industry to any other transportation system I may say that this is still the safest form of transportation," she said.

"In Manila, in the Philippines we have been operating since 2010 and we have not been any fatal accident to date and that is something that we are proud of," she added.

AirAsia Philippines launched its Manila-Davao-Manila flight last Friday, with the inaugural flight composed of an all-female crew headed by Captain Gisela Z. Bendong. (KGL)
