Cebu Pacific Air, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Cebgo, received its third ATR 72-600 High Capacity aircraft last Friday, February 3, 2017.
This aircraft is the first ATR 72-600 delivered for this year, bringing the airline’s total fleet to 58. This brand-new ATR 72-600 will be utilized for the two new routes Cebu Pacific will be launching this February 15, 2017: 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,” said Alexander Lao, President and CEO of Cebgo.
“Furthermore, this latest order allows us to fulfill our commitment to increasing inter-island connectivity while offering our unbeatable low fares through this aircraft’s fuel efficiency,” added Lao.
Along with the two new routes mentioned above, Cebu Pacific will also be launching two more routes from Northern Mindanao. Starting March 15, 2017, our valued guests will be able to fly from Cagayan de Oro to Bacolod and Tagbilaran, and vice versa.
This new ATR 72-600 will be used to support Cebu Pacific’s expansion plans in the archipelago, now servicing to 37 domestic destinations flying out of six strategically-placed hubs in Manila, Cebu, Clark, Iloilo, Kalibo and Davao. CEB also offers flights to 29 international destinations, covering an extensive network that spans Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and USA.
