Cebu Pacific (CEB) has completed 19 aircraft and engine deliveries for 2023, increasing its commercial fleet to 77 aircraft.

Of the latest aircraft deliveries for November and December, two are Airbus A330neo, while the rest are A321neo, A320neo, and A320ceo.

“Cebu Pacific achieved a historic milestone with a record number of aircraft deliveries this year. These additions to our fleet not only bolster our capacity to fly more passengers but also underscore our commitment to ensure every Juan gets to fly to their destinations,” CEB chief strategy officer Alex Reyes said in a statement.

To further boost its capacity, CEB signed on December 5 a damp lease agreement with Bulgaria Air for two Airbus 320 CEO aircraft that will service two domestic routes — Cebu and Davao — in line with continued post-pandemic air travel recovery.
