The carrier has another 31 of the type on order. It is also due to take another five A320neo on lease from Avolon this year, with deliveries commencing in the first half of the year.
Cebu Pacific initially deferred deliveries of the A321neos on order to the fourth quarter of 2018, due to delays with the PW1100G engines. Last November, however, the airline told FlightGlobal that it had yet to receive a firm timeline from Airbus on the delivery after the passing of the contracted delivery date.
The A321neo, adds to the carrier’s fleet of seven A321ceos. It also has 35 A320s and eight A330s in service, Fleets Analyzer shows.
