"Our latest order will make it possible for us to maintain our expected growth pattern over the coming years. It will also help us to continue our network expansion to reach more destinations across the region."

Manila-based Cebu Pacific is one of the leading low cost carriers in Asia, flying to 46 domestic and international destinations. Altogether, the carrier has now placed firm orders for 27 A320 Family aircraft, with 12 already delivered.
