On December 19th, Philippine Airlines will begin operating four weekly flights between Cebu and Osaka. The next day, December 20th, Philippine Airlines will begin operating three weekly flights between Cebu and Nagoya.
The new routes to be launched in December this year will bring to 67 the total number of Philippine Airlines flights to Japan per week.
Currently, Philippine Airlines operates from Manila 11 weekly flights to Tokyo Haneda, 14 weekly flights to Tokyo Narita, seven weekly flights each to Nagoya, Osaka (Kansai), and Fukuoka. From Cebu, there are 14 weekly flights to Tokyo Narita.
