Cebu Pacific has firmed up its commitment to acquire 16 Airbus A330-900 aircraft, first made at the Paris air show in June.
In a brief, single-line disclosure made to the Philippine Stock Exchange on 4 November, the low-cost carrier says it signed a purchase agreement for the 16 aircraft in a deal valued at $4.8 billion.
In June, when it announced plans to acquire the Airbus aircraft, the deal also included 10 A321XLRs and five A320neos. The latest disclosure does not appear to include the narrowbodies.
Cebu Pacific is set to receive the A330-900s in 2021, with the A321XLRs to be delivered from 2024. No timeline was provided for the A320neos.
As of press time, the carrier has yet to respond to Cirium's queries about the schedule for the A330neo deliveries and to clarify the status of the Airbus narrowbodies.
