Philippine Airlines welcomes additional competition on transpacific routes, a sign of the strength and vitality of the air travel market between the Philippines and the United States.

PAL has always embraced healthy competition among different players across our network.

Today, PAL operates 37 weekly flights on U.S. routes, including double daily flights to Los Angeles, daily flights each to San Francisco and Guam, and several weekly flights to New York and Honolulu. Our efforts have helped boost tourism, facilitate stronger PH-U.S. economic ties, and serve Balikbayan families, business travelers and trade flows in recent decades. We remain committed to those efforts to serve North America.
