Cebu Pacific (CEB) took delivery of a brand new Airbus A320 aircraft, the airline announced on Friday.
The new aircraft, which arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport on Thursday, is the fourth A320 that Cebu Pacific received this year. The airline is expecting to receive another A320 in November.
The 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 Cebu Pacific to continue offering its trademark low fares to even more passengers in its extensive route network,” said Juan Lorenzo Tañada, CEB vice president 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.
