The deliveries will consist of 17 New Engine Option (NEO) Airbus A321s, known for their fuel efficiency, and four Current Engine Option (CEOs) leased on a short-term basis. Cebu Pacific aims to transition to a fully fuel-efficient, all-NEO fleet by 2028.

In line with its commitment to sustainability, CEB’s most recent aircraft delivery on July 27th, 2023, was a brand-new Airbus A321neo with registry RP-C4133. The flight arrived at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, using blended Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) sourced from Airbus’ Delivery Centre in Hamburg, Germany.

Alex Reyes, the Chief Strategy Officer of CEB, highlighted the importance of this move toward sustainability, stating, “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.”

CEB has been actively incorporating SAF into its operations as part of its sustainable aviation initiatives. The airline previously received a brand-new A320neo aircraft powered by SAF with a 41 percent blend, demonstrating its commitment to reducing carbon emissions and promoting environmental responsibility.
