Phillippine Airlines will launch a direct chartered flight between Naha and Manila for six months from December. The news was announced on July 14. Mikiro Shimoji, a member of the Lower House, who was visiting the Philippines from July 11 to 13 met with Secretary Tugade from the Department of Transportation and other parties to make the decision. One monthly round-trip flight will be launched from September, and there will be two trips per month from December.

The flight will be a chartered flight for inbound visitors from the Philippines. The decision as to whether the flight should become a regular route or not will be made based the response to this route. Philippine Airlines had direct flights between Naha and Manila in 2003, however the route was cancelled in August 2007 due to declining customers. A direct flight between Manila and Naha was launched again this April after ten years.
