MANILA, Philippines -- The Philippines' leading airline, Cebu Pacific (PSE:CEB), took delivery of one brand-new Airbus A320 aircraft. It is the 4th A320 that the airline has received this year.
CEB's brand-new Airbus A320 arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) last October 30, 2014. CEB is due to take delivery of another A320 this November 2014.
The brand-new Airbus A320 is the airline's 9th aircraft that comes equipped with Sharklets. Sharklets are 2.4 meter wingtip devices that enable lesser fuel burn and lower emissions.
"The addition of fuel-efficient Airbus A320 aircraft to our fleet enables CEB to continue offering its trademark low fares to even more passengers in CEB's extensive route network," said Atty. Juan Lorenzo Tañada, CEB VP for Corporate Affairs.
With this delivery, CEB now operates a fleet of 51 aircraft comprised of 10 Airbus A319, 28 Airbus A320, 5 Airbus A330 and 8 ATR-72 500 aircraft. It is one of the most modern aircraft fleets in the world. Between 2014 and 2021, Cebu Pacific will take delivery of 10 more brand-new Airbus A320, 30 Airbus A321neo, and 1 Airbus A330 aircraft.
