Cebu Pacific has boosted its fleet with the receipt of its ninth new aircraft last Thursday.

In a statement, the airline said the deliveries are part of the 21 aircraft that have been ordered to add to its fleet in 2023 to further improve its operational resiliency amid growing demand for air travel.

The brand-new Airbus A321NEO (new engine option), arrived at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila from Airbus’ Delivery Centre in Hamburg, Germany using blended sustainable aviation fuel on its flight, the airline said.

“This aircraft delivery allows us to increase our operational resilience while continuing to provide safe, reliable, and affordable air travel to our passengers. Our ongoing re-fleeting with new-generation, fuel-efficient aircraft and our continued use of sustainable aviation fuel will also help our decarbonization efforts in making the aviation industry more sustainable,” said Alex Reyes, CEB chief Strategy officer.

Of the 21 expected aircraft deliveries this year, 17 are NEOs, while four are Current Engine Option on short-term lease. The airline aims to shift to a more fuel-efficient, all-NEO fleet by 2028.

Last month, Cebu Pacific received a brand new A320neo aircraft from Airbus’ final assembly line in Tianjin, China, powered by sustainable aviation fuel with a blend of 41 percent, marking a major milestone for Cebu Pacific’s sustainable aviation initiatives.

Sustainable aviation fuel is a drop-in fuel with similar characteristics as conventional jet fuels. It does not require any adaptations to the aircraft or engines and does not have any negative impact on performance.

The use of sustainable aviation fuel results in up to 80 percent reduction in carbon emissions across the fuel’s life cycle. (PR)
