Bourget. Cebu Pacific orders 16 A-330neo aircraft
In addition to 10 A-321XLR and 5 A-320neo - DATA SHEET
Short from Le Bourget. Cebu Pacific (CEB), a Low-Cost Carrier based in the Philippines, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for 31 Airbus aircraft, comprising 16 A-330neo, 10 A-321XLR and 5 A-320neo.
Cebu Pacific’s A-330neo aircraft will be a higher capacity version of the A-330/900, with 460 seats in single class configuration. The carrier also becomes one of the launch airlines for the A-321XLR, which will be able to fly non-stop from the Philippines to destinations as far afield as India and Australia. The A-320neo aircraft announced yesterday will be the first of the type to feature 194 seats in a single class layout. This latest agreement supports CEB’s ongoing fleet renewal programme, which aims to have only new generation, environmentally efficient aircraft by 2024. The fast-growing carrier’s decision also strengthens its all-Airbus fleet status in the jet category.
These new-generation aircraft will allow Cebu Pacific to further expand its Asia-Pacific network and position itself even more competitively.
