Filipino low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) at the Paris Air Show for 31 Airbus aircraft – comprising 16 A330neo, 10 A321XLR and 5 A320neo.
Cebu Pacific’s A330neo aircraft will be a higher capacity version of the A330-900, with 460 seats in single class configuration.
The airline also becomes one of the launch airlines for the A321XLR, which will be able to fly nonstop from the Philippines to destinations as far afield as India and Australia.
The A320neo aircraft announced today 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.
Selected for their outstanding operational efficiency, comfort and increased range, these new-generation aircraft will allow Cebu Pacific to further expand its Asia-Pacific network and position itself even more competitively.
