travel picks up, we hope that these solutions will allow our
customers to travel more conveniently and reach their destinations

Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) has
made a number of changes recently designed to provide a
more seamless travel experience for passengers including the removal of
the initial security check in all four NAIA terminals,
reassignment of some domestic and international flights to other
terminals, and the implementation of several digitalization projects.

Cebu Pacific currently flies to 35 domestic and 25
international destinations, spanning across Asia, Australia and
the Middle East.
Cebu Pacific received its 10th Airbus 320neo (new
engine option) on 16 April, as part of the airline’s goal to
transition to a more fuel-efficient fleet by 2028.
The aircraft, which used sustainable aviation fuel
(SAF) to fly from the Airbus Delivery Center in Toulouse, France
to NAIA in Manila, is the
second of ten expected Airbus NEO deliveries scheduled for 2023.
“The delivery of our 10th A320neo aircraft,
powered by sustainable aviation fuel, highlights Cebu Pacific’s
commitment to become one of the greenest airline in Asia. We
continue to invest on these fuel-efficient NEO aircraft and
incorporate SAF in our operations,” said Alex Reyes, Cebu Pacific
Chief Strategy Officer.
SAF is a drop-in fuel, with similar
characteristics as conventional jet fuel. It does not require any
adaptations to the aircraft or engines and does not have any
negative impact on performance. The use of SAF results in a reduction
of up to
80% in carbon emissions across the fuel’s lifecycle.
The airline is expecting
to take delivery of eight more Airbus NEO aircraft this year: one A320neo,
three A321neo and four A330neo.
Cebu Pacific’s fleet currently comprises of 30 A320s, 17
A321s, 5 A330s and 16 ATRs.
