Follow these steps:

  1. Create new cluster in the new zone
  2. Deploy apps to the new cluster
  3. Check everything is started successfully
  4. Redirect traffic to the new cluster via switching NAT/Load Balancer/DNS
  5. Shut down/Destroy old cluster

It can also be done in this manner:

  1. Stop all the K8S services.
  2. Move the EC2 instances to the target zones as mentioned here.
  3. Start the EC2 instances in the target zones.
