CEB Adds 10 A321Neo In 2019

6 August 2018

Low Cost Carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB) will add Ten (10) A321Neo aircraft beginning next year as it grows fleet and expands capacity to existing route network served by 180-seater A320-200.

CEB will have 230 seats on its A321Neo in all economy configuration for destinations to Korea, Japan and China out of its seven hubs in the Philippines.

The carrier has five A321ceos it received from March, and it will have seven frames by September for capacity growth, before its first Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-powered A321neo is delivered in November.

The airline said most of its A321Neo flights will be departing out of Manila and Cebu for longer international destinations as it grows capacity in the congested airport. CEB no longer has slots for new flights out of Manila.

Meanwhile, its A321ceos will be relegated to fly domestic,also to grow capacity in replacement of regular A320 services that seats 180 passengers in airports of Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Puerto Princesa, Zamboanga, and General Santos. It will also fly to Hong Kong, Taipei and Shanghai, which is within the 2 hour flying range.

Cebu Pacific has 32 A321neos on order, scheduled to be delivered through to 2022.

Also at the same time, CEB would also acquire 5 new Airbus A320neo jets to to support its fleet expansion through an Operating Lease Agreement with Dublin-based Avolon Aerospace.

Deliveries will start in the first half of 2019 and is expected to be completed the same year. Cebu Pacific said it was adding an average of 9 new aircraft per year until 2022.

      From what I've read from news articles, PAA will next develop their hub here at Puerto Princesa and the newly opened airport in Panglao.

      I think it's not in ACF configuration but surprisingly, the've manage to fit in 6 extra seats. They must have disabled the use of exit rows 2 and 3 to have 236 on board. And no reports stated that it is in ACF configuration so I guess we should await the delivery.

    5. What? 236 seats? Grabe! Iniisip k plng nasisikipan na ako!
