I always fly Philippine Airlines because the service is very good as well as the fare, considering you are on a non-stop flight. Some of the other airlines offer lower fares but they require you to go to Korea, Japan or China to change flights with hours of layover time.

It is advisable to book your local airline for departure from your home state for travel to Los Angels, San Francisco, or Las Vegas as your point of departure for the Philippines.  Philippine Airlines offers fantastic non-stop service to the Philippines from these locations. (Stop to fuel only in Guam) Non Stop on the return flight of 12 hours.

The aircraft you will be flying on is a Boeing 747-400 which is one of the most comfortable and smoothest Wide-Body Jets flying across the Pacific ocean today.

Your departure from Los Angeles is an Evening flight leaving at approximately 9:00 pm, arriving in Manila at about 6:30 am. You will be able to sleep from 6-8 hours as they turn off the lights and it is very quiet shortly after the first meal is served, within two hours of your departure from LAX.

The Flight takes 15 hours including the 45 minute fuel stop that lands in Guam at about 3:45 am and departs at about 4:30 am, with final arrival in Manila at about 6:30 am.

You will receive a wonderful hot Asian meal within the first 2 hours of departure, a second hot breakfast in about 8 hours and a third light meal about 1 1/2 hours before you land in Manila.

Because this flight crosses the International Date Line and takes over 15 hours, you will arrive in Manila two days after your departure from the United States. Make sure you make your connecting flight from Manila on the correct date of your arrival in Manila.

The Following are an example of the current air fares from Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas:

Hawaiian Airlines

Most people have not thought of traveling to the Philippines by way of Hawaii. On a recent trip to Bantayan Island I met a swimming coach from Oahu who gave me a tip on flying from the United Staes to the Philippines. He told me that it is about the same price to fly via Honolulu as it is to fly directly from the U.S.

I checked Hawaiin Airlines Web Site and discovered he was absolutely right.

The Round Trip Airfare from Phoenix Arizona to Honolulu Hawaii, then on to Manila, Philippines is just about $975.00 USD Per Person.

You could schedule a short layover in Honolulu and get two tropical vacations in paradise for the price of one.

Here is the link to Hawaiian Airlines Web site where you can check on booking your own flight.

Domestic Airline Service Inside the Philippines From Manila to Cebu


Connecting Flights from Manila's Ninoy Aquino International Airport can be made through two Domestic carriers inside the Philippines: Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific Airlines. Below you will find links to both Domestic carriers to make your connecting flight from Manila to Cebu.

It is advisable to make your connecting flight through Philippine Airlines if your International flight is also through Philippine Airlines.

When booking your International flight through Philippine Airlines, simply add the connecting flight at the same time.  In this way you will be allowed to carry two checked bags at 50 pounds each. If the connecting flight is made seperately, there is a large upcharge for a second bag and any weight over 33 Pounds. The upcharge is 100 Pesos per kilo.
