Philippine DOT Urges United Airlines To Add Flights To More Points Than Just Manila

Summary Limited flight options from the US to Manila, with only one daily direct flight by United Airlines from San Francisco, lasting around 16 hours.
The Philippines government suggests United Airlines consider adding more routes, such as Clark International Airport, Mactan Cebu International Airport, and Davao International Airport.
The Fly America Act restricts US government employees and contractors from flying on international carriers without a codeshare agreement or Open Skies Agreement, limiting options for travel to Manila.
With a more than 26 million metro population in the 2020 census, it would be easy to assume that airlines from the United States would have several nonstop flight options to Manila in the Philippines. However, this is not the case.
Limited options for Manila
At present, there is only one daily direct flight from the continental United States to Manila by a United States-based airline. That would be the new United Airlines roughly 16-hour nonstop service from San Francisco to Manila daily using a Boeing 777-300ER jet.
UA191 SFO 2335 – MNL 0650 +2
UA190 MNL 0955 – SFO 0620
The flight has 60 Polaris business class seats, 24 premium class seats, and space for 266 passengers in economy. In a statement, United’s Senior Vice President of Global Network Planning and Alliances Patrick Quayle said:
