'Cebu Pacific becomes greenest airline in Asia' | Lorenz S. Marasigan – BusinessMirror


BUDGET carrier Cebu Pacific on Sunday said it has earned the title “greenest airline in Asia” after receiving a long-haul airliner that has a higher capacity versus other jets and even similar models.

Cebu Pacific Chief Strategy Officer Alex Reyes said the Airbus A330 neo of the Filipino budget carrier features 450 lightweight Recaro seats, which allows “more travelers to be carried in a single flight, resulting in the lowest carbon footprint per passenger.”

This, he said, makes Cebu Pacific “the greenest airline in Asia.”

“Cebu Pacific’s first A330neo brings us closer to our target of having an all-neo fleet by 2027, and shows our commitment to making air travel accessible, while ensuring environmental and social sustainability,” he said in a statement.

The plane uses 25 percent less fuel than previous generation aircraft, consuming as little as 1.4 liters per seat per 100 kilometers.

The jet, powered by Trent 700 engines, also reduces its exterior noise footprint by almost 60 percent, emitting sounds 3 decibels lower than competitors.

“We believe that growth and sustainability are not mutually exclusive and should in fact be inclusive if we want to work towards the greater good. This is why we will always choose the greener options—increased aircraft efficiency, reduced noise and carbon emissions, to ensure that more low fares will be available for everyJuan,” Reyes said.

Airbus Asia Pacific President Anand Stanley added that the aircraft is compliant with the International Civil Aviation Organization (Icao) standards for emissions, making its operations more “sustainable for the future.”
