7th plane delivery in 2024 boosts Cebu Pacific's fleet and operations

Cebu Pacific has received its seventh aircraft this year, enhancing its ability to meet growing demand for air travel.

The latest addition, a fuel-efficient A321neo, landed at Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport from Airbus’ Hamburg, Germany facility on June 30.

“This aircraft delivery reaffirms our commitment to providing safe, affordable, and accessible flights for every Juan,” Xander Lao, Cebu Pacific president and chief commercial officer, said in a statement on Wednesday.

“We look forward to carrying more passengers to their chosen destinations as we continue to expand not only our network, but also our fleet,” he added.

Cebu Pacific's 7th aircraft this year flew in from Airbus's factory in Germany on June 30. 

This latest delivery is part of an outstanding order for new aircraft.

On Tuesday, Cebu Pacific announced the signing of a fresh agreement with Airbus to purchase up to 152 A321neo planes for $24 billion (P1.4 trillion), marking the largest aircraft order in Philippine aviation history, with the final agreement expected in the third quarter of 2024.

Cebu Pacific boasts one of the youngest fleets globally, with a diverse mix of eight Airbus 330s, 37 Airbus 320s, 22 Airbus 321s, and 15 ATR turboprop aircraft, ensuring the broadest network coverage in the Philippines.
