Philippines carrier Cebu Pacific (CEB), has signed a firm order with Airbus for 16 long-range A330neo aircraft.
The order firms up the wide-body portion of a previously announced Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), which also includes commitments for 10 A321XLR and five A320neo single-aisle aircraft.
The A330neo ordered by Cebu Pacific is a higher-capacity version of the A330-900, with up to 460 seats in a single-class configuration. Cebu Pacific plans to operate the aircraft on trunk routes within the Philippines and the rest of Asia, as well as on longer range services to Australia and the Middle East.
The A330neo on order will be powered by the latest-generation Trent 7000 engines from Rolls-Royce with an extended range capability of up to 8,000 nautical miles / 15,000 kilometres.
The A330neo cabin provides the comfort of Airspace by Airbus amenities, including state-of-the-art passenger in-flight entertainment and Wi-Fi connectivity systems.
