The Philippines’ carrier, Cebu Pacific Air (CEB) took delivery of its 59th aircraft last February 28, 2017.
This new ATR 72-600 is the fourth of the 16 firm orders CEB made last year.
This brand-new ATR 72-600 will be used to support the company’s expansion as CEB, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Cebgo, will be launching two new routes this March 15 2017: Cagayan de Oro to Bacolod and Cagayan de Oro to Tagbilaran.
“We are eager to receive yet another addition to our ATR fleet, supporting our expansion plans in the archipelago. CEB remains committed to further increase inter-island connectivity within the Philippines, to serve not only our kababayans but also tourists who wish to explore the country’s beautiful islands and experience the world-renowned Filipino hospitality,” said Alexander Lao, President and CEO of Cebgo.
“Rest assured, we will continue making more destinations accessible to everyJuan while consistently providing our trademark low fares, paired with our safe and fun service” added Lao.
CEB currently offers flights to a total of 37 domestic and 29 international destinations, operating an extensive network across Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and USA. Its 59-strong fleet is comprised of four Airbus A319, 36 Airbus A320, seven Airbus A330, eight ATR 72-500, and four ATR 72-600 aircraft.
