AirAsia is in difficulties. After the regretful crash of AirAsia (Indonesia) flight QZ-8501 the sister corporation AirAsia-Zest (Philippines) data once again 3 incidents.
AirAsia airplane priority landing at NAIA
Yesterday afternoon, a Manila-certain AirAsia aircraft created a precedence landing at the Ninoy Aquino Global Airport (NAIA) on Saturday afternoon. The pilot of AirAsia Z2-0949 flight from Kuala Lumpur asked for for a priority landing right after the airplane knowledgeable pressurization issues at about 1:30 p.m. The plane, carrying 133 passengers and 6 crew customers, landed properly at the airport.
Airliners in Southeast Asia employed to call this business Pest Air. AirAsia took over the company after CAAP experienced grounded the fleet simply because of bad routine maintenance and doubtful Pilot’s coaching.
Pressurization problems are just about all because of to lousy upkeep. This 12 months (in 10 days) two other planes encountered comparable problems. An Air Berlin A321 around Paris and a Jetblue E190 at Fort Lauderdale.
AirAsia aircraft runway overrun in Kalibo
On December 30, 2014 AirAsia flight Z2-272 was scheduled to depart at 3:10 pm but did so almost two hours later. Travellers ended up informed that a Cebu Pacific flight to Kalibo was previously compelled to convert back again to Manila since of negative temperature disorders and faulty digital tools in KLO airport. A perfectly educated airliner handed us the details that wind was between 20 and 24 kts from 90 levels. The similar individual educated us that the ILS and the Localizer Approach were “ON TEST” – in other text, not usable. The 5J pilot (Cebu Pacific Air) determined not to land and returned to Manila (MNL).
The Pest Air, sorry AirAsia Zest pilot then manufactured a “smoke it in”! This suggests an unstable closing solution. He landed much soon after the runway threshold and could not use the wheel brakes at comprehensive force for the reason that of the wet runway. End result the aircraft overrun the runway with about 40 kts.
This was a not satisfactory pilot’s error. Even if the airplane hadn’t been an more mature ex-AirAsia (Malaysia) A320, landing underneath these kinds of problems is unsafe and negligent.
The pictures had been taken by a buddy of a good friend travelling on this plane.
AirAsia aircraft blocks runway with flat tire
On December 28, the similar working day when the regretful crash of AirAsia (Indonesia) flight QZ-8501 took place, AirAsia (Philippines) flight EZD351 could not choose off from Tagbilaran airport. The crew detected a flat tire of the principal equipment, when the plane stood already on the runway.
No airplane could land and just take off at the runway thanks to the stalled plane, resulting in the cancellation of at minimum 6 Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific flights to and from Manila. The airport could be reopened only up coming early morning.
All over again a human fault. How can a plane roll from the gate to the runway with a flat tire? Neither pilots nor floor workers did inspect the airplane ahead of taxiing. And again experienced it been a previous Pest Air airplane and crew.

AirAsia and in particular AirAsia-Zest ought to now be very mindful. 3 incidents and 1 lethal crash in 10 times shock folks. We get almost daily inquiries with the query “Is it secure to fly with AirAsia?”
Not only the Philippines member of the team is in hazard of losses, the whole AirAsia Team may come across slipping passenger quantities. A misplaced fantastic name is tricky to get again.
And even worse, insiders assume that CAAP (the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines) could floor AirAsia-Zest. Only a number of months after Philippine Airlines got off the EU Blacklist and regained FAA Category 1, they won’t threat to be back again in Group 2 and once more be blacklisted.
