Cebu Pacific takes delivery of first A330-300 from CIT Aerospace

Cebu Pacific announced (13-Jun-2013) it had received the first of four one-class, 436-seat A330-300s leased from CIT Aerospace. The carrier intends to operate the aircraft on medium-haul regional routes initially, before deploying it on services to Dubai in Oct-2013. Cebu Pacific president and CEO Lance Gokongwei said: "The delivery of our first widebody aircraft marks a milestone for Cebu Pacific. The addition of the highly efficient A330 to our fleet ultimately translates to unbeatable operating costs, enabling us to offer the lowest possible fares to our guests. In addition, we will be the only Filipino carrier flying nonstop between Manila and Dubai, eliminating multiple stops or connecting flights" [more - original PR]
