Cebu Pacific of the Philippines has placed a firm order with Airbus for seven more A320s, the manufacturer announced this morning. The latest contract increases the carrier’s A320-family order backlog to 22 aircraft, scheduled for delivery between the last quarter of 2010 and 2014.

Powered by CFM56 engines, the new aircraft will join an existing A320 family fleet flying on the low-cost carrier’s domestic and regional route network.

Manila-based Cebu Pacific now operates 21 aircraft A320-family narrowbodies, which average 2.8 years of age. The carrier flies to 33 domestic destinations and 14 cities elsewhere across Asia.
