Cebu Pacific has selected Pratt & Whitney
PurePower PW1100G-JM engines for its order of 30 firm and 10
option A321neo aircraft.
The agreement also includes a ten-year
PureSolution maintenance package for each engine. Deliveries are
scheduled to begin in 2017.
"We selected the Pratt & Whitney PurePower
engine because of its fuel burn, emissions and noise benefits over
today's engines," said Lance Gokongwei, Cebu Air Inc. president
and CEO. "We are confident that the PurePower engine will deliver
the lowest total operating costs for our fleet of Airbus A321neo
The PurePower engine uses an advanced gear system
allowing the engine’s fan to operate at a different speed than the low-pressure compressor and turbine. The combination of the gear
system and an all-new advanced core delivers fuel efficiency and

3.6 years – is one of the youngest aircraft fleets in Asia.
Between 2012 and 2021, Cebu Pacific will
take delivery of 22 more Airbus A320 and 30 Airbus A321neo
aircraft orders. In 2013, CEB will take delivery of 4 Airbus A330
