Fly to Sapporo or Tokyo in time for ski season.

How good are these Philippine Airline fares?

  • Price: Good. It's rare to see full service flights fall this close to $500 return, with most toeing the $550 mark, giving this sale the ultimate edge. Sure, it's no $306 fare like we've seen with budget airlines in the past, but with checked luggage, meals and entertainment on your outbound and inbound journeys, the extra $200 can be justified. You can make your booking now through STA Travel.
  • Airline: Good. Philippine Airlines is the national carrier of the Philippines and is a 4-star airline that features all luxuries including checked bags and meals.
  • Travel time: Good. All flights include a stopover in Manila. This breaks up the journey though increases travel time by three hours if flying from Sydney or Melbourne compared to flying direct.
  • Weather: Great. Summer, winter and spring travel is available in this sale.

Dreaming of walking with geishas through Tokyo or hitting the slopes in Sapporo? Philippine Airlines has heard your cries and delivered a Japan flight sale to both cities that will keep more money in your pocket. To put towards a few extra sushis or udons during your trip, naturally.
