Philippine Airlines appears set to add a new route connecting Manila to Seattle and to relaunch service between Cebu and Los Angeles.

Both the Seattle (SEA) and Los Angeles (LAX) flights would begin in May, with Philippine Airlines set to offer three flights a week on the routes. Seattle would be flown with an Airbus A350 and Los Angeles with a Boeing 777.

Both routes were first reported by Airlineroute. However, TPG could only independently confirm the Cebu-Los Angeles flights.
