Cebu Pacific Takes Delivery of ATR 72-600 with Titanium Seats

Cebu Pacific has taken delivery of its third ATR 72-600 High Capacity aircraft.

It is the first ATR 72-600 to be delivered this year and also the first in the airline’s fleet to have Expliseat, the world’s lightest aircraft seat, installed.

The lighter seat is expected to help decrease fuel burn while allowing the carriage of more guests and cargo on board.

The Titanium Seat is a technological breakthrough registered under 16 patents, made of ultralight materials such as titanium and carbon composite resources.
