Manilla – Trevolution Group research on winter holiday season booking trends indicates that the number of travel reservations made between the United States and the Philippines in December 2022 and January 2023 currently reaches 85% of the reservations made during the same period in 2019-2020.
Peter Vazan, CEO of ITN, part of Trevolution Group, stated: “Each year winter holiday season is the busiest time for visiting friends and relatives. The changing booking patterns may mean more passengers will book their flights only weeks away from the holiday, but it likely won’t make it possible to reach the 2019 traffic levels.”
“The first quarter of the year is traditionally the peak time for the Philippines tourism season, and the current outlook for the upcoming months is strong. Every third ticket from the United States to the Philippines is booked during the first three months of the year,” Vazan added.
Top Philippines destinations from US airports for the winter holiday period are Manila, Cebu, Mabalacat, Laoag, and Davao. In turn, most passengers originate from Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Miami, and Seattle.
