MANILA, Philippines –Philippines airline, Cebu Pacific, has made a deal to sell six of its Airbus A319 aircraft to low-cost carrier Allegiant Air.
According to CEB’s President and CEO, Lance Gokongwei, “This agreement is in line with CEB’s efforts to continuously improve operational efficiency by replacing and upgrading our fleet with the larger, more fuel efficient, and longer range A321neo aircraft.”
The A321neo is the largest model in the A320neo series, which incorporates new engines and large wing tip devices called sharklets. The advances will deliver fuel savings of 20 percent and additional payload or range capability. The fuel savings translate into some 5,000 tons less CO2 per aircraft per year. In addition, the aircraft will provide a double-digit reduction in NOx emissions and reduced engine noise.
