PHILIPPINE budget airline Cebu Pacific (CEB) has finalized orders for 30 Airbus A321neo aircraft, firming up a memorandum of understanding signed in June.

The latest purchase agreement increases the airline’s total firm orders for the A320 family to 71, of which 16 have already been delivered. The airline currently operates 25 A320s — 16 purchased from Airbus and nine leased.

CEB president and chief executive Lance Gokongwei said the A321neo will enable the airline to increase capacity on key routes while benefiting from the lowest operating costs of any aircraft in this size category.

“With the step-change in fuel savings offered by the A321neo the airline will be able to strengthen its position further, flying more people at even lower cost than before,” John Leahy, chief operating officer of Airbus, said.

Cebu Pacific will configure its A321neo fleet with 220 seats in a single class layout for its pan-Asian network.
