Philippine Airlines will be the first airline to offer nonstop service between the Philippines and Seattle. The new nonstop service continues Seattle-Tacoma International Airport’s pattern of strong growth in recent years.

With Philippine Airlines yet to make an official announcement regarding the airline’s new nonstop service between Manilla and Seattle, it is not clear when flights will be available for booking. Award flights can be booked through Philippine Airlines’ Mabuhay Miles frequent flyer program. Unfortunately, Philippine Airlines is not a major of any major airline alliance and its frequent flyer program features just two major airline partners. For travelers hoping to score a seat on the airline’s new nonstop flights, using miles or points will be quite difficult.
