Philippine Airlines Direct Flight to Sapporo

Philippine Airlines will fly direct to Sapporo, Japan from Manila starting 10 September to serve the growing need for direct flights to the popular Japanese destination. The country’s flag carrier has said its new route will be the only nonstop air link between the Philippines and Sapporo, the capital of the northernmost Japanese island of Hokkaido.

Sapporo is known for its skiing and annual Sapporo Snow Festival in the winter as well as a range of natural and cultural attractions that draw tourists during the spring, summer and autumn.

The route will be available thrice a week – every Monday, Wednesday and Friday – using its new Airbus A321neo aircraft that will have Wi-Fi connectivity and in-flight entertainment.
