CEBU Pacific’s newest inter-island aircraft arrives in Manila

Cebu Pacific's newest aircraft, an Airbus A321neo, has arrived in Manila. The aircraft is part of the airline's fleet expansion plans to serve the growing demand for domestic and international travel in the Philippines.

The A321neo is a fuel-efficient, single-aisle aircraft that can carry up to 240 passengers in a two-class configuration. It is expected to help Cebu Pacific increase capacity and improve operational efficiency on its routes.

Cebu Pacific's newest inter-island aircraft, the ATR 72-600, boasts several key features designed to enhance efficiency and passenger experience:

  3. Advanced Avionics: The ATR 72-600 is equipped with the latest avionics technology, including a glass cockpit and advanced navigation systems, which improve flight safety and operational reliability.
  4. Operational Flexibility: The aircraft is designed to operate efficiently on short runways and in challenging weather conditions, making it ideal for the diverse and often remote airports in the Philippines.
  5. Comfort and Cabin Design: The cabin of the ATR 72-600 is designed to provide a comfortable travel experience with ergonomic seats, ample legroom, and large overhead bins for carry-on luggage.
