Low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific Air has taken delivery of three additional brand-new Airbus A321CEO (Current Engine Option) aircraft, beefing up its fleet to 65.

With the delivery, Cebu Pacific now has four Airbus A321CEO, 36 Airbus A320, eight Airbus A330, eight ATR 72-500, and nine ATR 72-600 airplanes.

Cebu Pacific has invested US$4.9 billion on its new A321 fleet, with deliveries of additional three A321CEOs and 32 A321NEOs (New Engine Option) spread from this year until 2022.

These new aircraft will support Cebu Pacific’s expansion plans across the region, further boosting a network that now spans over 100 routes on 37 domestic and 26 international destinations.

The new A321CEOs can accommodate 50 more passengers for a total seating capacity of 230 seats. Coupled with investments in avionics, Cebu Pacific said this will lead to more efficient operations and to even lower fares for its customers.

Meanwhile, Cebu Pacific said it will temporarily suspend all flights to and from Caticlan, Aklan on the back of sluggish demand as Boracay remains closed to tourism activities. The suspension of all of the carrier’s operations will take effect from May 17 until October 27, 2018.

Prior to Boracay’s closure from April 26, Cebu Pacific had maintained a daily flight between Manila and Caticlan as well as Cebu and Caticlan.

The airline said it will resume full commercial service in Caticlan once Boracay opens in late October 2018.

Affected passengers may take any of the following options: get a full refund; place the full value of the ticket in a travel fund for future use; rebook the flight within 30 days without penalties, subject to flight/seat availability; or reroute to any domestic destination within 30 days without penalties, subject to flight/seat availability.

Cebu Pacific said it is providing this information to passengers affected by the flight cancellations.

Aside from Cebu Pacific, other airlines have also limited their flights to Caticlan and Kalibo after the government closed off the island to tourists for six months to make way for its rehabilitation.
