Cebu Pacificu Pacific Air has taken delivery of its 40th aircraft, an Airbus A320. The aircraft is Cebu Pacificís 22nd Airbus A320.

 Cebu Pacificís fleet is now composed of 10 Airbus A319 and 8 ATR 72-500 aircraft. One more Airbus A320 will be delivered in November 2012.

ďCebu Pacific will end 2012 with 41 aircraft, the largest aircraft fleet in the Philippines. Cebu Pacific passengers will continue to benefit from the airlineís newest and fuel-efficient aircraft, as we open new domestic and international routes this year,Ē said Cebu Pacific VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

The airline launched thrice weekly Zamboanga Ė Cagayan de Oro flights on 20 October 2012, using an Airbus A319 aircraft. ďThis will make travel more convenient to our passengers in Mindanao, who can now take a 1 hour and 10 minute flight between Zamboanga and Cagayan de Oro, instead of a 12 to 14 hour bus ride,Ē My Iyog said.

Cebu Pacific will launch three more domestic routes in October, and four more international routes in November and December. These international routes are: Iloilo-Hong Kong, Iloilo-Singapore, Cebu Pacificu-Kuala Lumpur and Cebu Pacificu-Bangkok.

Between 2013 and 2021, Cebu Pacific will take delivery of 19 more Airbus A320 and 30 Airbus A321neo aircraft orders. It is slated to begin long-haul services in the 3rd quarter of 2013, with the arrival of 4 Airbus A330 aircraft from 2013 to 2014.
