Paris Air Show: Cebu Pacific to order 31 Airbus aircraft

Posted 18 June 2019 · Add Comment

Cebu Pacific (CEB), a Low Cost Carrier based in the Philippines, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for 31 Airbus aircraft, comprising 16 A330neo, 10 A321XLR and five A320neo.


 
Cebu Pacific’s A330neo aircraft will be a higher capacity version of the A330-900 (above), 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. These new-generation aircraft will allow Cebu Pacific to further expand its Asia-Pacific network.
 
The A320neo and A321XLR are members of the A320 Family incorporating the very latest technologies, including new generation engines and Sharkletst. At the end of May 2019, the A320neo Family had received more than 6,500 firm orders from over 100 customers worldwide.
 
The A321XLR is the next evolutionary step from the A321LR which responds to market needs for even more range and payload, creating more value for the airlines. From 2023, it will deliver an unprecedented Xtra Long Range of up to 4,700nm – 15 percent more than the A321LR and with 30 percent lower fuel burn per seat compared with previous generation competitor aircraft.
 
The A330neo Family is the new generation A330, comprising two versions: the A330-800 and A330-900 sharing 99% commonality. The A330neo is powered by Rolls-Royce’s Trent 7000s and features a new wing with increased span and new A350 XWB-inspired Sharklets.
