Cebu Pacific just became the first Asian low-cost carrier to use Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) as the carrier's brand new Airbus A330Neo used SAF on its delivery flight from Toulouse to Manila.
Cebu Oacific is currently undergoing a fleet modernization to have an all-neo fleet by 2027. The carrier has 14 A320Neo in order and 13 A330Neo in order.
The newest A330New registration RP-C3902, is configured with 459 seats in a single-class layout.
