Cebu Pacific Air has taken delivery of the first aircraft bearing its new livery.
The brand new Airbus A320 was handed over to Cebu Pacific on 22 January in a ceremony at the Airbus factory in Toulouse, France. It becomes the 34th A320 in the low-cost carrier’s fleet, and will be followed by another aircraft featuring the new livery by the end of January.
Both new single-aisle jets come equipped with 180 economy class seats and the ‘Sharklet’ wing-tip extensions that are designed to save fuel.
“As we look to celebrate the airline’s 20th anniversary this year, we proudly welcome this addition to our fleet which features Cebu Pacific’s new logo,” said Atty JR Mantaring, Cebu Pacific’s vice president of corporate affairs.
“The plane’s refreshed livery signifies the airline’s growth and evolution from pioneering low-cost travel in the Philippines, to successfully growing its flight operations across key domestic and international markets today.”
By the end of January 2016, Cebu Pacific’s fleet will comprise 35 A320s, eight smaller A319, six long-haul A330s and eight ATR 72-500 turboprops. And by 2021, Cebu Pacific intends to take delivery of three more brand new A320, 30 A321neo and 16 ATR 72-600 aircraft.
