Carrier now offers daily flights between Guam and Manila
United Airlines announced Friday that it expanded its Guam-Manila service to daily from five-times weekly starting last Sept. 7, 2021. This expanded service conveniently provides customers in Guam with more options to travel to Manila and daily connections for Manila passengers connecting to United’s daily Guam-Saipan service and Guam-Honolulu flights that offer further connections to U.S. cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Denver.
Sam Shinohara, United’s managing director of Airport Operations for Asia-Pacific said, “United continues to find opportunities to provide better connections for its customers in the region. The Guam-Manila flight is an important service for Guam residents seeking medical care in the Philippines and Philippines travelers looking to connect to the mainland U.S. through Guam and Honolulu. We are pleased to be able to offer our customers more flights between Guam and Manila and return to our daily schedule.”
With the addition of Monday and Thursday schedules, flights will depart and arrive at A. B. Won Pat International Airport, Guam and land and depart from Terminal 3 at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila.
Shinohara noted that the Philippines is a key market in Asia, and United will be celebrating its 40thanniversary of service to the Philippines in 2022.
The flight offers three types of onboard services: United Business Class, Economy Plus which offers extra legroom, and United Economy. Tickets are available for purchase at united.com.
