CEB flies with the world's lightest aircraft seat


The Philippines' leading airline, Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Cebgo, has chosen the world's lightest aircraft seat, Expliseat, for its ATR 72-600 aircraft.  

The titanium seat will be installed on all 16 aircraft, two of which are already being utilized by CEB. The lighter seat is expected to help decrease fuel burn while allowing the carriage of more guests and cargo on board.


"With Expliseat's ultralight seats, CEB is able to provide comfortable seating to its guests while allowing for a more fuel-efficient operation which will lead to more affordable fares.  With CEB's low fare offer, we hope to further stimulate inter-island connectivity and contribute to the economies of the destinations we operate in," says Alexander Lao, President and CEO of Cebgo.


"Expliseat is proud to announce its collaboration with Cebu Pacific Air. This agreement confirms the unique balance between passenger comfort, high reliability and weight savings that can be offered by the Titanium Seat," comments Benjamin Saada, Chief Executive Officer of Expliseat.


The Titanium Seat is a technological breakthrough registered under 16 patents, made of ultralight materials such as titanium and carbon composite resources.


CEB offers flights to 37 domestic and 29 international destinations, covering an extensive network that spans Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and USA. Its 57-strong fleet is comprised of four Airbus A319, 36 Airbus A320, seven Airbus A330, eight ATR 72-500, and two 72-600 aircraft. Between 2017 and 2021, CEB expects delivery of 32 Airbus A321neo, one Airbus A330, and 14 ATR 72-600 aircraft.


For bookings and inquiries, guests can visit or call the reservation hotlines (+632)7020-888 or (+6332)230-8888. The latest seat sales can be found on CEB's official Twitter (@CebuPacificAir) and Facebook pages.
