    Cebu Pacific signed (04-Nov-2019) a firm order with Airbus for 16 long range A330neo. The aircraft is a higher capacity version of the A330-900, with up to 460 seats in a single class configuration. The carrier plans to operate the aircraft on trunk routes within the Philippines and the rest of Asia, as well as on longer range services to Australia and the Middle East. Cebu Pacific CEO Lance Gokongwei stated: “The A330neo is integral to our fleet modernisation programme”, adding it will also “Give us the lowest cost per seat, at the same time enabling Cebu to increase seat capacity and maximise valuable airport slots in Manila and other Asian megacities”.
