Cebu Pacific of the Philippines has placed a firm order with Airbus for seven more A320 aircraft. The latest contract increases the carrier's A320 family order backlog to 22 aircraft, scheduled for delivery between the last quarter of 2010 and 2014.

Powered by CFM 56 engines, the new aircraft will join an existing A320 Family fleet flying on the low cost carrier's extensive domestic and regional route network.

"The A320 Family offers the right combination of low operating costs, fast turnaround times and high levels of passenger comfort," said Lance Gokongwei, Cebu Pacific President and CEO. "These features have enabled us to offer a high-quality, value-based product to our passengers, which we will bring to more destinations and more markets across the region as our fleet continues to grow."

Manila-based Cebu Pacific currently operates 21 aircraft from the A320 Family, with an average age for the fleet of just 2.8 years. The carrier currently flies to 33 domestic destinations and 14 cities across the Asian region.
