Philippine Airlines (PAL) and American Airlines have launched a codeshare partnership that introduces the first marketed flights by a Philippine carrier to several US destinations and allows American’s passengers to travel to Manila and Cebu.

This follows American competitor, United Airlines, recently launching daily nonstop flights between San Francisco and Manila.

American’s customers are now able to book tickets on for codeshare flights operated by Philippine Airlines to Manila and Cebu via Tokyo. Additionally, customers will be able to fly to Manila from Honolulu and Guam.

Meanwhile, PAL has placed its “PR” code on American’s flights between Los Angeles and seven US cities, comprising Atlanta, Denver, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, Orlando and Washington to connect to PAL’s transpacific service from LA.

PAL operates twice-daily nonstop flights to Los Angeles, daily flights to San Francisco and multiple weekly flights to New York, Honolulu and Guam.

“We are excited to partner with Philippine Airlines, which will provide our customers seamless connections to Manila, the capital and economic hub of the region, and Cebu, the gateway to countless tropical islands with pristine beaches,” said Anmol Bhargava, American’s vice president of global alliances and partnerships. “The Philippines is one of the fastest growing economies in Asia, and we look forward to continuing to enhance our partnership with Philippine Airlines.”

“This partnership with American Airlines unlocks more options for customers traveling between Asia and the United States,” said Eric David Anderson, PAL’s chief commercial officer. “We are delighted to deliver on our long-term strategy of continuing to build our global reach. We look forward to creating more opportunities for travelers to discover the wonders of the Philippines.”
