Cebu Pacific has taken delivery of its first A330neo on lease from Avolon, as it begins its wide-body fleet modernisation programme.

The aircraft is configured with 459 seats in a single-class layout and will be operated by the airline 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 offers versatility for a wide-range of routes from shorter regional services to medium- and long-haul operations.

Altogether Cebu Pacific has ordered 16 A330neo aircraft and also has 16 A320neo and 22 A321neo aircraft outstanding to be delivered. The low-cost carrier currently operates 50 Airbus aircraft, comprising 43 A320-family and seven A330ceo aircraft.

The aircraft is powered by Rolls-Royce’s latest-generation Trent 7000 engines and features a new composite wing with increased span for enhanced aerodynamics.
