ANA, PAL, and Cebu Pacific Launch New Flights to Japan

cebu pacific japanJapan's All Nippon Airways and the two largest carriers in the Philippines simultaneously launched new routes between Japan and the Philippines yesterday after the two countries concluded a successful round of air talks last year. The new routes represent an effort to draw more Japanese tourists to the Philippines while increasing trade between the two countries.

With the addition of the new flights operated by the three carriers, flights between Japan and the Philippines will increase from 56 flights per week to 81 flights per week. Philippine Airlines launched two new daily flights between Manila and Tokyo's Haneda Airport to complement its existing services to Osaka, Fukuoka, Nagoya, and Tokyo Narita.

Low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific launched its first direct flights between Manila and Tokyo Narita along with four weekly services to Nagoya. Prior to the new air agreement between the two countries, Cebu Pacific was only permitted to operate three weekly flights to Osaka. That route has now been increased to daily service with further expansion planned throughout Japan. The carrier is also targeting Fukuoka, Ibaraki, Kansai, Hiroshima, Sapporo, and Okinawa. Cebu Pacific also intends to launch service from Cebu to three Japanese cities.

"With our seat sales, seamless Manila airport terminal connection and extensive network, we hope to stimulate travel and bring Japanese tourists to various destinations in the Philippines, " said Candice Iyog, Cebu Pacific's Vice President for Marketing and Distribution. "Similarly, we hope these two new destinations will enable many Filipinos to explore Japan for leisure or business travel. Japan is now more accessible and more affordable with Cebu Pacific flights." ana narita to manila flights

Meanwhile, All Nippon Airways, the largest airline in Japan by passenger traffic, has launched a new service between Manila and Tokyo Haneda Airport to compete directly with the new service launched by Philippine Airlines. ANA has been operating in the Philippines for the last three years with a flight between Manila and Tokyo Narita. From Haneda, passengers will be able to connect to ANA's extensive network in Japan. In addition, to increase its competitive edge, ANA will be deploying its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft to operate the route.

More than 700 Japanese businesses have set up operations in various parts of the Philippines making Japan one of the country's largest investors with more than P15 billion worth of investment in the first 9 months of 2013 alone. According to the Department of Tourism, the move to increase flights between the two countries will have a significant impact on the country's tourism industry.

"The increase in flights is a step forward from the recently concluded re-negotiation of the Japan-Philippines air services agreement, which is seen to open gates for additional flights between the Philippines and various points in Japan such as Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Sapporo, Okinawa, Ibaraki, Tokyo Narita, and Tokyo Haneda, " said Ramon Jimenez, Tourism Secretary. "The fun on the Philippines can now be experienced by more tourists from Japan."

Meanwhile, Ramon Ang, President of Philippine Airlines, highlighted the limitless opportunities for trade and tourism between the two countries. "With this service, and what we already have, we are providing both our Japanese and Filipino customers the benefit of choice in terms of which gateway best suits their travel itinerary, " said Ang. "As the operator of the Philippines' flag carrier, we are deeply honoured to serve as a bridge by which tourism and business between our two countries can grow.”

Where can I book a vacation in Italy for the Summer of 2012?

Is there any website online where I can book a vacation for anywhere in Italy (preferably Rome) in either July or August 2012? Someplace inexpensive would be nice. :)

It's too early to book for 2012. Check the travel guides and tourism websites to find the places you'd be interested in visiting and start planning for the trip, but you'll have to wait to actually book anything for those dates. You need to think about rather you want an organized tour or to travel independently, what your budget will look like for the trip, places you'd like to see and things to do on the trip. Then come back with more detailed questions in another year.

What is a good book to learn about Italy?

My dream is to take a trip to Italy one day. In the mean time I'd like to learn a lot about it first. What is a good recommended book that can help me learn lots about the country? I guess you could consider it a tour guide, but I want a book that'll talk about all parts of Italy: the food, the places, the shopping, typical famous attractions and must sees. I especially want to know about the beautiful country sides and villages outside of the large cities like Rome and Venice. Also maybe…

I'll add that it doesn't hurt to have some knowlege of the Roman empire and then the Renaissance, too. It's not essential, but it's a major part of Italy's heritage, and a good portion of why it is what it is, today.

Happy (:
Going to Italy alone at 18?

Okay so I would really love the thought of going to Italy for a month in my gap year in 2012 (I know its way off, but I think I should start thinking about it now)

I wanted to go with one of my best friends, but one of them isn't having a gap year and the other just wants to stay in england and save money for university (she's also not a big fan of change and adventure..).

So my question(s) are..

Do you think I'm too young to be going to Italy alone?

Do you have any experience traveling alone? would I just end up feeling very…

Yawn, Italy is boring. It's overrated. If you're going with a lover, then that's different because it's a romantic place. But as a loner, it's pretty yawnish. Go to Thailand. Better scenery, better food, better parties, older history and attractions, much much cheaper, friendlier natives, and lots and lots of backpackers from UK, USA, and Australia who will welcome any loner into their groups.
