The Philippines’ largest airline, Cebu Pacific Air (CEB), has selected Messier-Bugatti-Dowty (Safran group) wheels and brakes for its fleet of Airbus A319 and A320 twinjets. The contract covers the current fleet, as well as future aircraft to be acquired. With 30 Airbus aircraft in its current fleet and over 50 more on order, CEB joins the ranks of virtually all A320 operators in the Asia-Pacific region as Messier-Bugatti-Dowty customers.
CEB Chief Operations Adviser Mark Breen said: "CEB consistently places top priority on passenger safety, cost efficiency and on-time performance. In choosing Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, our fleet will be equipped with a market-leading product, distinguished by superior reliability and support.”
Alain Sauret, Chairman and CEO of Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, added, "The endurance and reliability of our Sepcarb®III OR carbon material are particularly well suited to the requirements of a low-cost carrier like Cebu Pacific. This material offers proven performance, particularly in humid climates, and is largely favored by Asia-Pacific operators."
