EAST HARTFORD, Conn., 26 July 2012. Officials at Cebu Pacific Air (PSE:CEB), a large carrier in the Philippines, 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," says 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."

Cebu Air Inc. currently operates 10 Airbus A319, 20 Airbus A320, and 8 ATR-72 500 aircraft. 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.
