Going from Manila to the US via PAL or Philippine Airlines has often been a breeze for those headed to San Francisco or New York. Both cities are directly accessible from the Philippines courtesy of the Philippine flag carrier. Now, you can enjoy the same convenience when going to Seattle and Las Vegas, two of the biggest Filipino hubs in North America.
Effective since September 2021, PAL’s single-stop Manila to Seattle and Manila to Las Vegas routes are made possible by its partnership with Hawaiian Airlines. PAL already has existing regular flights to Honolulu in Hawaii. Through the initiative, travellers to the US can make the most of the journey by using the Hawaiian capital as a stopover point.
Manila to US with PAL with a free Honolulu stop
The Hawaii stop further offers PAL US passengers the opportunity to get the best out of the state’s culture and adventures with a free overnight stay en route to Manila. Coming from both Seattle and Las Vegas via a round-trip booking with PAL, you can also enjoy a 2D1N hotel stay in Honolulu, inclusive of breakfast on the day of your flight to Manila.
At the moment, the offer is available for booking until 30 Nov 2021 for travels up to the same date. Trips between 1 Jan and 31 Mar 2022 are also possible. Aside from complimentary breakfast, it is also inclusive of land transfers and free baggage allowance. You may book with a travel agent, a PAL ticket office, or the PAL hotline (+632 8855 8888).
Travellers visiting Hawaii from the Philippines are likewise exempted from undergoing quarantine upon arrival. This is as long as you take an RT-PCR test from PAL’s COVID-19 testing centers or Trusted Testing Partners approved by Hawaii’s government.
