First A321neo for Cebu Pacific


The expansion and fleet renewal programme by Cebu Pacific took another step forward with the delivery of its maiden Airbus A321neo. The aircraft, RP-C4118 (c/n 8608) was handed over on January 21 and is the first of 32 examples the airline has on order from Airbus, of which at least five more are due for delivery this year. The Filipino carrier is is also planning to add five A320neos under lease agreements from Dublin-based lessor, Avolon.
The carrier’s A321neos will be powered by Pratt & Whitney PurePower GTF engines and they are configured in a single-class layout offering 236 Recaro-designed seats. These latest generation single-aisle aircraft will, the airline said, enable it to grow its Asia-Pacific network.
This latest delivery brings the total number of aircraft in the rapidly growing Cebu Pacific fleet to 72, consisting of 44 A320 family jets as well as eight A330-300 widebodies. It also has a fleet of eight ATR 72-500 and 12 ATR 72-600 turboprops that are operated by its low-cost regional subsidiary, Cebgo.
