Cebu Pacific Air (Manila) ordered 16 ATR72 -600 from ATR, the European Turboprop aircraft manufacturer. At the Paris Air Show, Cebu Pacific and ATR announced that the deal includes options to acquire an additional 10 ATR72-600s, valuing the total aircraft order at $673 million, based on current list prices.

The order is part of Cebu Pacific’s fleet renewal program. Cebu Pacific currently operates a fleet of eight ATR 72-500 aircraft, which will be retired as the new aircraft enter service. The entry into service of the ATR 72-600 will see Cebu Pacific double its Turboprop fleet with new generation aircraft to meet growing demand in the Philippines for inter-island service.

The ATR 72-600 ordered by Cebu Pacific will be equipped, for the first time, with the high density Armonia cabin, the widest cabin in the turboprop market. It will be equipped with 78 slim-line seats and wider overhead bins with 30% more stowage space. These new technological innovations further enhance space and comfort for passengers.

About 330 ATRs – including more than 100 ATR 72-600s – are currently operated by 55 airlines in the Asia-Pacific region, where for many years now, are seen as the reference regional aircraft. The ATR 72-600 has the lowest seat per mile cost on the 70 seat segment, with significantly lower fuel and maintenance costs compared to similar class aircraft.

Cebu Air Inc. is the largest carrier in the Philippine air transportation industry, offering its low-cost services to more destinations and routes with higher flight frequency within the Philippines than any other airline. CEB currently operates a fleet of 55 aircraft comprised of 10 Airbus A319, 31 Airbus A320, 6 Airbus A330 and 8 ATR 72-500 aircraft.

Between 2015 and 2021, Cebu Pacific will take delivery of seven more brand-new Airbus A320 and 30 Airbus A321neo aircraft.

The airline issued this statement:

Cebu Pacific (2015) logo

The Philippines’ leading airline, Cebu Pacific Air rolls out its new logo starting June 1, symbolizing the airline’s growth and evolution from a low-cost pioneer to its larger operations today.

Proudly Filipino, the airline now uses the country’s natural canvas as inspiration, featuring shades of the Philippines’ land, sea, sky and sun.

“We have always prioritized building an extensive network within and from the Philippines, because we know how much air travel makes a difference in the lives of Filipinos. We bring the Philippine warmth and sense of fun everywhere we go. Now, with the Philippines natural colors on our logo, we showcase the country to the world,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

“The new branding is not just a tribute to our roots, but also a nod to the future. As we expand to farther shores, we look forward to being an even more relevant player in the wider, global market,” she added.

A game changer, CEB began flying in March 1996 with four aircraft and 24 flights to key cities in the country. It revolutionized the air travel industry and changed the way Filipinos traveled. Now, it operates over 2,200 weekly flights to 34 domestic and 28 international destinations, utilizing 55 aircraft. With its wholly owned subsidiary Cebgo, it offers the widest network in the country. The airline also recently flew its 100 millionth passenger.

Tigerair Philippines, the wholly owned subsidiary of Cebu Pacific Air, now operates as Cebgo. Its new logo utilizes CEB colors, to further reflect the airline’s relationship with its parent company.

“The new Cebgo brand clearly identifies us as part of the CEB group, and streamlines our operations further. Cebgo will continue to leverage on CEB’s distribution channels and network, and work together to serve more guests,” said Michael Ivan Shau, Cebgo President and CEO.

Starting this May, Cebgo crew has been conducting Fun Games onboard to unify the CEB group flight experience. Flight and ground crew will don Cebgo uniforms in a few months’ time.

Cebgo continues to operate flights from Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 4 and Clark International Airport. It flies to 16 destinations: Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Clark, Cebu, Davao, General Santos, Iloilo, Kalibo, Legazpi, Manila, Roxas, Puerto Princesa, Tacloban, Tagbilaran, and Hong Kong.

Since CEB’s acquisition of Cebgo last March 2014, CEB managed to quickly turn around its wholly owned subsidiary, narrowing its financial losses significantly. Cebgo has since then launched 10 new routes, offering more options for the traveling public.

In 2014, Cebgo carried 1.3 million domestic passengers, compared to 970,000 in 2013.
