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 aircraft."

The PurePower engine uses an advanced gear system allowing the engines 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 environmental benefits.

Cebu Pacific currently operates 10 Airbus A319, 20 Airbus A320 and 8 ATR-72 500 aircraft. Its fleet of 38 aircraft with an average age of 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 wide-body aircraft to launch its long haul operations in the same year.
