Getting to Know Cebu Pacific’s first A321 Neo Aircraft
Airbus delivered its A321Neo to Cebu Pacific. The airline deployed the said aircraft for international routes end of 2018. It is an exciting adventure for budget carrier Cebu Pacific, with the neo deliveries.
The Gokongwei-led airline, however, has yet to finalize which routes the A321neo will traverse. But at present, the airline is eyeing a combination of flights to Japan and Indonesia.
Currently, Cebu Pacific ordered five A320neo, two A321 ceo (current engine option), 32 Airbus A321neo, and six ATR 72-600 aircraft. The plane acquisitions will hopefully fuel the budget carrier’s growth. After all, Cebu Pacific has not expanded its fleet this much in the past few years.
Cebu Pacific will deploy the new fleet of aircraft in various airports across the country. These include Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), Clark International Airport (CRK), and Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA).
There are many places in the country where the airline may set to deploy these aircraft. Cebu Pacific intends to stimulate the market while seeing if the airline can get enough traffic, seeing as there are enough places to put them.
Cebu Pacific may gradually phase out some of its older Airbus 320 units. Right now, the airline has a fleet of 67 planes, 36 of which are Airbus A320s, five A321ceos, eight A330s, eight ATR 72-500s, and ten ATR 72-600s.
