China Southern is currently offering discounted business class flights from Amsterdam to Southeast Asia. The cheap tickets are being sold for flights to Manila and Cebu City in the Philippines. You can purchase a round-trip at prices starting around €1,174.
The availability of this deal is good. You should be able to find connections between January and September 2020.
From Amsterdam, the Chinese carrier will first fly you to Guangzhou. The long-haul flight will be onboard a Boeing 787 Dreamliner in most cases. After a short layover, your trip to the Philippines will continue. Unfortunately, the short-haul segments won’t offer lie-flat seats.

Information & Tips for Philippines
The Philippines is a Southeast Asian country in the Western Pacific and comprises more than 7,000 islands. In the capital, Manila, there is a famous waterfront promenade and a centuries-old Chinatown called Binondo.
Best Time to Visit
The Philippines are most popular during the dry season, between November and April. At this time the country is fully accessible, including its many beautiful islands and more remote areas. Temperatures are high during March and April, so it’s best to travel during the cooler months of December to February.
Entry & Visa
Since 2013, if you are from a EU country you don’t need a visa if your planned stay in the Philippines is 30 days or less. Citizens from 157 countries can now enter the Philippines visa-free.
