Launching on May 3, the new nonstop service from Manila will be operated on an Airbus A350.
The Philippines’ flag carrier has announced that it will launch a thrice-weekly service between Manila and Seattle–Tacoma International Airport, the gateway to the U.S. Pacific Northwest, on May 3, 2020. The nonstop flights will be operated on an Airbus A350, which offers 295 seats, including 30 in business class, 24 in premium economy, as well as 241 in economy class.
The service will run on Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesdays with the following schedule: Manila to Seattle departing at 10:45 p.m. and arriving at 7:45 p.m. local time (on the same day); Seattle to Manila departing at 11:05 p.m. and arriving at 3:35 a.m. (two days ahead). Outbound journeys will take about 12 hours, while the return leg is slightly longer at 13 and a half hours.
With the debut of this new route, Seattle is slated to become Philippine Airlines’ fifth U.S. destination, alongside Honolulu, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco. In addition, the airline also flies to the Canadian cities of Toronto and Vancouver, for a total of seven North American destinations.
