Skytrax's four-star ranked Philippine Airlines wants to be the carrier you'll Travel the World on with its latest seat sale on flights to Southeast Asia and beyond. Tickets from the airline's U.S. gateways of San Francisco SFO, Los Angeles LAX, New York JFK, and Honolulu HNL to airports across Asia are starting at just $595 roundtrip.

While we've seen fares cheaper being offered by other airlines, many of them route through China, which is still deemed a no-go zone at the moment. Therefore, this Philippine sale is likely your best bet if looking for a last-minute departure or a broader range of travel dates than competitors without routing through an affected area.

  • Travel Period: March 1 - May 20 and August 16 - November 30, 2020.
  • Travel Days of the Week: Depart from JFK, SFO, and LAX, Sunday through Thursday. HNL, Monday through Friday.
  • Blackout Dates: May 21 - August 15, and other peak holiday dates.

Alternate Fares

Some routes may have lower fares on mainland Chinese carriers such as China Eastern, China Southern, Air China, or Xiamen, but at the moment, you'll likely want to avoid booking those even if they're much cheaper. 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.
