Peak Season:

Manila is hot and humid all year round, making it a popular destination for tourists. The busiest time of year is from December to May so cheap flights to Manila are harder to come by. It is also when Manila is most crowded. The price of your flights tickets can also fluctuate and increase during annual events or festivals, such as the Feast of the Black Nazarene in January, so make sure you book your flights to Manila as early as you can to secure a good price. The second week of April sees the Cocoa de Flores, or Chocolate and Flowers and shouldn’t be missed if you are travelling to Manila around then.

Off Season:

Due to the pleasant weather Manila doesn’t suffer from an off season too much, although you’ll find the cheapest flights to Manila between June and September. This is typically the typhoon season and sees the most rainfall.

When is the best time to book a flight to Manila?

You’ll find the cheapest flight deals in May or June, although March and April are only slightly more expensive. Book your flights to Manila well in advance if you intend to visit during an event or festival to avoid paying through the roof on your flight tickets. You’ll find the best deals on flight tickets if you can be flexible with your dates so if you don’t have your heart set on any specific period or date then you can find cheap flights to Manila. If you are governed by work or the school holidays, then try to book your flights to Manila for the Christmas period or early January as you’ll get warm and dry weather and if you secure your flight tickets early enough, the cost should be quite fair too.

Which airlines operate flights to Manila?

Air Canada, Etihad Airways, Delta, and Philippine Airlines are the four main airlines that operate flights to Manila.

If you want to experience high comfort then flying with Etihad is a must. You might be paying extra but the service is set to a high standard.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Most international flights currently land in Terminal 1, although they are transitioning to Terminal 3 as Terminal 1 is ranked as one of the worst in Asia. It is confusing and difficult to navigate, however getting to the city is still a simple task. It is located around 7km South of Manila and the easiest way is probably a taxi. Don’t accept a ride from anybody approaching you in the arrivals terminal though, and make sure to agree on a fare before you get into the taxi. Getting a taxi is normally a safe thing, however if you are travelling alone you might opt for the public transport options. From Terminal 1 you can get a city bus service, or you can get a taxi to the metro station and continue your journey from there. There is an airport shuttle that leaves from Terminal 3, so if you do land there then that might be a good option. Check with your hotel before you take your flights to Manila and see if they provide a service to pick you up.
