Louella Desiderio (The Philippine Star) - February 9, 2017 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines – Cebu Pacific’s wholly-owned subsidiary Cebgo has received its third ATR 72-600 high capacity aircraft.

The budget carrier said the new aircraft delivered last Friday, would be utilized for the two new routes to be launched on Feb.15 such as Manila to Masbate, and Manila to Tablas.

“We are glad to take delivery of another brand-new ATR 72-600, especially since this is the first to have the titanium seats from Expliseat installed. This aircraft therefore combines reduced seat costs while optimizing comfort for passengers,” Cebgo president and chief executive officer Alexander Lao said.

“Furthermore, this latest order allows us to fulfill our commitment in increasing inter-island connectivity, while offering our unbeatable low fares through this aircraft’s fuel efficiency,” he said.

Apart from the new routes to be launched on Feb.15,  Cebu Pacific is also set to start offering new flights from Northern Mindanao by next month.

In particular, the carrier would begin flying from Cagayan de Oro to Bacolod and Tagbilaran, and vice versa on March 15.

The new ATR 72-600 delivered for this year, brings the group’s total fleet to 58.

To date, the group’s fleet is composed of four Airbus A319s, 36 Airbus A320s, seven Airbus A330s, eight ATR 72-500s and three ATR 72-600 aircraft.

The group operates one of the youngest and most modern aircraft fleets in the world with an average age of 4.92 years.

From this year until 2021, Cebu Pacific expects delivery of one more brand-new Airbus A330, 32 Airbus A321neos and 13 ATR 72-600 aircraft.

At present, Cebu Pacific flies to 37 domestic destinations as well as 29 international points from its six hubs in the country such as Manila, Cebu, Clark, Iloilo, Kalibo and Davao.
