Cebu Pacific Air saves fuel with lighter air cargo containers from Nordisk

Philippines’ largest flag carrier, Cebu Pacific Air (PSE:CEB), has selected Nordisk to provide its wide-body aircraft with lightweight ULDs. The choice of Nordisk will achieve the best fuel economy and greatest reductions in CO2.

Nordisk lightweight ULDs are used for efficiently storing cargo and luggage on wide-body aircraft. With the new Nordisk ULDs, Cebu Pacific expects to generate fuel savings from lighter aircraft weight per flight.

"Our partnership with Nordisk helps us meet our fuel efficiency targets while also supporting smooth ground operations," says Alex Reyes, General Manager, Long Haul Division of Cebu Pacific. "Fuel savings ultimately means that our passengers can continue to enjoy the lowest fares possible for their Cebu Pacific flights."

"We are very pleased to be selected by Cebu Pacific, and appreciate this opportunity to support their low-cost services with our light weight products and reliable aftermarket support," says B.Y. Sim, Nordisk's Vice President of Sales and Business Development.

The new Nordisk ULDs support Cebu Pacific's direct daily flights between Manila and Dubai, the airlines first long-haul A330 destination. The airline is expected to take delivery of the new ULDs by December 2013.

Cebu Pacific's Airbus A330-300s is configured in an all-Economy layout of 436 seats with a 31-inch pitch, the highest seat density of any A330 in the world.
