Skytrax's four-star ranked Philippine Airlines is celebrating the holiday season with a seat sale on flights to Southeast Asia and beyond. Flights from its US gateways of San Francisco SFO, Los Angeles LAX, New York JFK, and Honolulu HNL to airports across Asia are starting at just $652 roundtrip.

While we've seen fares cheaper being offered by other airlines, some solid value can be had on last-minute departures and over a broader range of travel dates than competitors.

Alternate Fares

Some routes may have lower fares on mainland Chinese carriers such as China Eastern, China Southern, Air China, or Xiamen. These carriers often have extended layovers, and most travelers prefer the service on Philippine Airways' newer fleet. Plus, you'll likely find that Philippine's lowest fares are more widely available for travel within this sale period and not only on scattered dates.
